Optimus makes a lousy helmet.

@  Nutjob R/T : (12 February 2016 - 02:11 PM)

Wait when did Optimus Prime fly off the top of your head?

@  Plokatron : (12 February 2016 - 01:55 PM)

@Paladin @TheMightyMollusk @NotVeryKnightly Dumb dumb dumb on Hasbros part. Optimus flew withing the first three episodes of the G1 cartoon. No not the glide flight thing that only Deceps uses after that I mean the jetpack part. Plus I can site four other times he flew off the top of my head.

@  Boomhauer : (12 February 2016 - 12:45 PM)

Optimus already got to fly in RID's Season finale, though one could argue he was just falling with style instead of flying properly.

@  Rycochet : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

The Unicron Trilogy had awful shows but some really neat toys even if it did get off to a shaky start with some of the unnecessarily flawed Armada stuff.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 12:09 PM)

Didn't he fly in Beast Hunters?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 February 2016 - 11:58 AM)

What about Animated?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:55 AM)

Someone who never saw the Unicron Trilogy. God do I envy them....

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 11:49 AM)

...Hasbro's billing that new "Power Surge Optimus Prime" as "the first time Optimus takes flight." who thought THAT sounded right....

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 February 2016 - 11:34 AM)

More likely, they'll all follow the same visual style to retain brand coherency. The most you could hope for is better writing, but don't hold your breath.

@  Dracula : (12 February 2016 - 10:25 AM)

Cool. Bay can't possibly direct all of those. Maybe we'll get someone else's vision of what a TF movie could look like.

@  Paladin : (12 February 2016 - 10:14 AM)

ugh. we're apparently getting 1 TF film A YEAR starting 2017. and Bumblebee gets a spinoff film...

@  Plokatron : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 PM)

Guess no one has the comic then. Blast I need that close up of Ironhide's helmet!

@  Arazyr : (11 February 2016 - 01:41 PM)

Happy Birthday, young'un. 8^)

@  D Buster Prime : (11 February 2016 - 01:21 PM)

It's my BIRTHDAY! I'm 35 years young!

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 10:54 AM)

nah! it's Venus that's going to Botcon!

@  Paladin : (11 February 2016 - 10:45 AM)

could've also meant Cree Summer...

@  Dracula : (11 February 2016 - 08:39 AM)

Good going, Blackarachnia. I heard it's been hard for her to get roles after Hasbro brought in Airachnid.

@  BillBarclay : (11 February 2016 - 06:34 AM)

you mean Venus Terzo! she's supposed to be going to Botcon

@  Whirl Maximus : (11 February 2016 - 03:23 AM)

Blackarachnia was on Supernatural last night.

@  Plokatron : (10 February 2016 - 11:08 PM)

Ponderous slagging ponderous. Hey anyone got some good Hi-res captures of Ironhide in Infestation? I really need close ups of his head for reference on a project.

@  Plokatron : (09 February 2016 - 10:46 PM)

Ok now this is funny. I ordered a used copy of HoS GN and the one I got was a library copy once. It's marked Union County on it. Thats my home county. :D It never was in my library though. Mine is named after the man who built it not the town or county but still kinda funny.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 February 2016 - 09:44 PM)

Is it sad I read "KF7 Soviet" as "KFC7 Soviet"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:38 PM)

Neat.

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 03:35 PM)

A what? Oh, you must mean a KF7 Soviet. Common mistake.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 February 2016 - 03:22 PM)

Can I just get an AK-47 instead?

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 02:35 PM)

this is form 47-a. you want form 47-A. start again

@  MEDdMI : (09 February 2016 - 02:07 PM)

Now you didn't fill the form in black or blue ink. Do it again.

@  Rycochet : (09 February 2016 - 02:04 PM)

You made a typo on the first page of the forms, you're going to have to go back and fill the whole form out again, from first to final.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 01:31 PM)

"bats"

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 01:09 PM)

Nice and soft, you say? This isn't even my final form!!!!

@  Telly : (09 February 2016 - 12:47 PM)

its nice and soft like YOU dracula *bats eyelashes* and thatll probly be the last thing i post in this thing now lol

@  Dracula : (09 February 2016 - 08:52 AM)

It's course and rough...wait that doesn't work

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 February 2016 - 08:43 AM)

It gets everywhere?

@  Paladin : (09 February 2016 - 07:57 AM)

i hate snow.

@  BillBarclay : (08 February 2016 - 04:58 PM)

btw one of the Transformers Victory intro's(not the original music used) on YouTube uses one of the pieces of music used on the US version of Transformers Armada

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:55 PM)

You should read it again, it gets better with age!

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 03:46 PM)

I am fully aware of that story and mentioning it carries the penalty of fifty towel snaps.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 03:31 PM)

Shh, it's a trap!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 February 2016 - 02:48 PM)

See, you said "awesome" and "The Beast" in the same sentence, and I think you broke my mind with the contradiction.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:42 PM)

No-one tell Whirl about the awesome dinobot combiner, The Beast.

@  Plokatron : (08 February 2016 - 02:37 PM)

@Dracula Uh oh were in trouble.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 02:36 PM)

If you think that's cool, wait until you see what other stuff we're hiding from you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 02:33 PM)

Transformers Victory's intro is awesome. And not one of you told me.... WHY?!!!

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

It doesn't count those using it on other pages.

@  Rycochet : (08 February 2016 - 10:43 AM)

If it's the one by IPB Shoutbox, it means the number of people who are viewing the Shoutbox page.

@  tffan01 : (08 February 2016 - 10:34 AM)

Where's the red numbers?

@  Lush City : (08 February 2016 - 09:23 AM)

Ok total newb to the shoutbox, but what do the red numbers in the corner mean?

@  Whirl Maximus : (08 February 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Thought it would lead to hi jinks and a lark like that movie Idiocracy instead it turned into something disturbing and traumatic like that movie Small Soldiers.

@  Dracula : (08 February 2016 - 08:55 AM)

You used MUNITION CHIPS in TOYS??

This topic is for all your fan ideas that aren't actually canon, but you personally consider them canon. Thus the phrase "fanon". I figure that rather than confusing other threads like episode discussions with our ideas, we could use this thread to discuss said ideas for fun and profit.

So yeah, go wild, everypony!

The reason Princess Celestia is only referred to as Princess instead of Queen, is that Equestria neighbours Narnia, and Aslan is king.

This would also explain why they have such a similar mish mash of fantasy creatures.

Oooh! I love these kinds of things. So easy to loop around from plausible into Pinkie Pie territory.

Ok, first idea: Ponies are terraformers left over by discord as an experiment. Have to make sure they don't try and take over the universe after all!

Two: Pinkie Pie could arguably be any of the elements of harmony, as she more than the others exhibits tendencies of all 6. She just focuses on laughter the most.

Optimus Prime and Celestia are drinking buddies.

Rainbow Dash as shown in several episodes is more for doing what is right and hearing out both sides than doing what would help her friends. Loyalty should be renamed Justice.

Pinkie Pie likes to laugh, but more than anything likes to cheer up those around her as well as those who need it most. Laughter should be renamed Hope.

Rarity despite being the element of generosity has some rather greedy tendencies. Yet interestingly wants the best for her friends over herself. Rarity would be best of friends with Greed from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Starscream has been having premonitions of a gaping maw of Rainbow...

I've actually often thought the same thing about Pinkie, although I think she'd have difficulty with Magic (all her other weird abilities notwithstanding), not being a unicorn. But as far as the other, more conventional Elements go, Pinkie seems to possess a much more even balance of each. Her cutie mark is more of an interdisciplinary one than most as well, I think. For example, it's not specifically a musical symbol like Vinyl, Octavia or Lyra have; but music is an aspect of parties and she exhibits an extraordinary talent for it. The same would go for baking.

Lauren Faust established that one a while back in a dA reply. Of course, maybe magic could be used in place of the scientific techniques in our world for couples who have difficulty or can't conceive in the traditional fashion, but by and large they reproduce like any animal.

Scootaloo. Thalidomide. Forever earthbound.

In fairness, that's not just my dislike for Scootaloo talking. Actually making her a wingcripple would well be worth a decent episode (Disabled people are people do, and deserve not pity or being avoided, but respect and such. And they can do things on their own, too, thank you very much) and make her character vaguely worthwhile.

Lauren - yes, yes, I know, no longer involved - did, quite pleasantly, hint at such a thing being a vague, not entirely out of the question option, too~

For more headcanon I'd have to look through IRC logs~

I consider the fanfic Canterlot Follies as fanon, myself.

I really like the way the Canterlot Noble titles are organized there, especially the title "Princette".

I LOVE the Aslan idea! Woo, they should have an unofficial crossover icon-hotrod.gif

I like the reassessment if the Elements of Harmony too. I really don't see Dash being too loyal or AJ being honest or Rarity being too generous or Twilight bring the most friendly. Actually the last element really isn't magic at all since 'friendship is magic.' but then that element is best personified by Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. Only those two have elements that fit completely.

Love the Hope over Laughter. That makes more sense. Justice works over Loyalty. Maybe Hardworking ness over Honesty? Or Empathy? The elements has to fit with the Harmony theme.

Justice isn't really an element of friendship, which is what they're part of.
