I LOVE BOT MASTER SO MUCH. Too bad the toys sucked. I even own jungle fiver. I love him so much, but he can barely stand on his own.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 September 2016 - 05:03 PM)

That's the 90s.

@  MEDdMI : (27 September 2016 - 04:50 PM)

Ninjzz? That's an unfortunate name.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 04:44 PM)

Also I thought Fico Ossio was quite nice on Revolutions.

@  Rycochet : (27 September 2016 - 04:36 PM)

You know the planet is in a jam, a diabolical plan of only one man. Louis Leon Paradim an international punk, and his army of 3As are his piece of junk.

@  Telly : (27 September 2016 - 04:26 PM)

for the longest time i thought jungle fiver was called jungle fiBer

@  Bass X0 : (27 September 2016 - 04:21 PM)

Does anybody remember the cartoon Bots Master? I enjoyed the show but looking back on it, most of the robot designs were lame. The only cool designs were Jungle Fiver and Ninjzz although the toys were nothing compared to Transformers of course. I thought the main human characters were decent enough for a show about robots. 

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:43 PM)

Although this is odd to me, since I'm fairly sure they are/were good friends.

@  Verity Carlo : (27 September 2016 - 02:42 PM)

Yeah I stopped liking the guy when I found his Twitter.

Social media is the worst thing to happen to fandom, you can now see people whose work you like being jerks or shills on a daily basis, which is worse than a bad interview or two.

@  Robowang : (27 September 2016 - 07:12 AM)

Dirty Jerk Warts?

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:05 AM)

Also, I guess he hates IDW Soundwave for not being an emotionless brick like the cartoon version? Man. Any enjoyment of Animated in future is going to be tainted for me by the fact that DJW is the worst kind of boring Geewunner.

@  Broadside : (27 September 2016 - 07:04 AM)

He also hates Action Man for no apparent reason other than "I don't know who this is and I don't care to find out". Which isn't fair, because Ian is the best character in IDW.

@  Jalaguy : (27 September 2016 - 06:47 AM)

DJW was mouthing off about the art for Revolution the other day too, doesn't entirely surprise.

Oof.

@  zephyrX9 : (26 September 2016 - 08:05 PM)

Sipher made a sarcastic remark about Sakamoto's skeeviness. Derrick called him an a**hole, and insulted his art, which was a low, unnecessary blow.

@  Touch My Thighs : (26 September 2016 - 07:43 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (26 September 2016 - 06:02 AM)

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2016 - 03:02 PM)

:(

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 September 2016 - 08:25 AM)

Sorry bebbeh, I'm taken.

Going off of something someone mentioned earlier, I actually do have to wonder if the character in question being female has anything to do with the people reacting negatively. No one really seems to care about all the stock dumb male characters in shows (of which there is a LOT).

Personally I'm more offended by people using the word "*scrubbed*(ed)" to refer to someone mentally handicapped. That word has come to be an actual general insult.

Well, all the definitions say it being stupid or looking *scrubbed*, not to actually referring to one being *scrubbed*, just stupid or an expression. I can see the confusion here.

"Derpy", in this case, is named after a particular expression that assumes mental retardation. It's the whole reason they named her that to begin with. "Derp" is used for more than just a sound or stupid action.
This is not at all my understanding of the word Derpy.

But then, I guess I shouldn't bother because people will just tell me that particular definition is fake and invalid.

In general, I'd welcome the creators just leaving fanon alone. Sometimes, when a series takes a fan joke or theory and makes it canon it can work. However, as soon as FiM gave even a hint of doing this the obsessed parts of the audience decided every little bit of fanon/fanfiction they created is canon by default. Bad enough as is but not helped by the number of half baked ideas it generated. In any other fanbase, you'd be laughed at/ignored if you tried to argue your fanwork was legitimate. FiM fans instead seem to think they're being added to the series bible as they plop them out and when the show DOES acknowledge them, it only feeds the ridiculous sense of entitlement.

Couldn't resist to reply: you must be new in MLP-fandom

Try to visit other parts of the fandom. More popular and frequent parts.

Or wait, better to do not, if you want to maintain your sanity

UPD: just encountered an example: http://www.reddit.co...hvd6/its_canon/
You find it funny and see it as a joke? That's right. But some people don't. They actually think it is reference to the fanon about Fluttershy being portrayed as Dovakhin. It sounds stupid, but that's the whole damn point.

I just read that Reddit thread-thingy, and no one is seriously saying "Dovahshy is Canon". You try to use this as an example of Fans deciding canon that doesn't actually exist, but your interpretation couldn't be more wrong. I feel just a little bit insulted that you'd expect anyone to take that as a serious example. You do realize that most things that declare "So and so is CANON" aren't serious declarations of fan belief, right?

Also, "You must be new here"? Really? When you're not wildly misinterpreting things, maybe you can condescend to us. And even then it's a jivey thing to do.

If nothing else, I would have hoped the fact the show ignored the fanon take on Luna would have been an eye opener to some. If you don't personally think there's a problem with this stuff fair enough. But don't call someone delusional when they've been around long enough to see fans actively arguing the fanon for this show somehow becomes canon because of a few nods to say thanks to the fans for being supportive.

The fact that people can be so defensive about a show about cartoon ponies staggers me.

Even shippers, arguably the hardest core of fanon subscribers, are usually joking when they say something like "OMG it's canon". No, it's not just "we see what they're saying as a joke" kind of joke, it's that they themselves actually mean it as a joke or are being facetious. Almost nobody thinks their fanon has a genuine place in the show; they just subscribe to those things they find enhance their own personal enjoyment. And personally, I don't give a flying feather one way or the other, as long as they're enjoying the bucking show.

QUOTE(Kein @ Mar 5 2012, 08:27 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Boards /pony/, /dis/ and /srs/ on ponychan.net, Canterlot.com , EqD's comments regarding episode or fanfics - this is where you can find the examples of such... let's name things honestly - idiocy. But I'm not going to look for them myself, no sir, sorry. I've had enough of it.

So you point to something that's a joke, and reference other people that feel completely differently. Pretty bad point you're making here.

You're delusional because you are seeing something that's not there. How long you've been around isn't really relevant.
