I just realised that Unsolved Mysteries has the same initials as Ultra Magnus.

Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

megatron but he turns into a ford fusion with a cannon badly welded onto the roof

My Little Fusion Cannon: Friendship Through Tyranny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 June 2018 - 02:01 PM)

was that supposed to sound sexual

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 01:55 PM)

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

@  MEDdMI : (19 June 2018 - 01:16 PM)

And then the magic ponies force everyone to be friends FOREVERRRRRRR

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

Sometimes I wonder if they specifically do this sort of thing (leaks, small foreign market early showings) in order to remove adult fans from the viewership when the show airs in the U.S.  There are cases of advertisers wanting to keep certain demos away (i.e. cartoons that have been cancelled because too many girls were watching an ostensibly boys' show), after all.

FnuAw - Today at 11:34 AM

It's never a good sign when a CMC episode's cold open ends without us getting into the plot yet. Get on with it.

Hopefully the pacing ends up fine. I'm just bracing for it.

Dvandom - Today at 11:35 AM

Well, isn't the plot "we should go to school here?"

Dvandom - Today at 11:37 AM

Oh great. Their clever plan is to fake backsliding.

Okay, at least they all have their own annoying plans.

It's clear why they never got acting cutie marks.

FnuAw - Today at 11:42 AM

But really now, the school's security is atrocious.

Neighsay did nothing wrong.

Dvandom - Today at 11:45 AM

Ocelus sent to trick the CMC into revealing they don't need to attend the school.

Bad cactus packaging.

FnuAw - Today at 11:48 AM

Hi Copper.

Copper Bezel - Today at 11:48 AM

How does one ordinarily package a cactus? Bicycle helmets seem somewhat impractical as a general solution....

Hello!

Boxes are fairly typical.

Is anyone else concerned that the bush beans guy is different?

A dungeon on the moon!

Community college, credit for life experience.

I was close in my prediction...tutors rather than TAs.

Scavenger - Today at 12:00 PM

but they wanted to go to school to play hoof ball

and why does the broom closet have a window...front facing no less...

SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

FnuAw - Today at 12:01 PM

This school will never make it.

Copper Bezel - Today at 12:02 PM

They were so much better off with having actual lessons with information in X ]

Dvandom - Today at 12:03 PM

Well, they've been in that school for 8 years now, and were covering graduate level physics a couple of years ago, so....

Scavenger - Today at 12:04 PM

so they were more warehousing them?

FnuAw - Today at 12:07 PM

Wait til Cheerilee finds out she's free of them.

Scavenger - Today at 12:09 PM

will likely be after school stuff for them... Can't see Twilight letting them not do math

FnuAw - Today at 12:13 PM

Don't you crush Cheerilee's dreams like that.

Dvandom - Today at 12:20 PM

Guess that's it for today. Later.

FnuAw - Today at 12:21 PM

I guess so. I'm not sure there's much to talk about with this one.

 

Shadewing - Today at 12:24 PM
yeah it was a rather straight forward and predictable episode

 

This school is doomed.

Was it really a good idea to make a reformed villain (who still has issues with abusing magic!) As a guidance councillor? She clearly still has a mean streak in her.

Yeah, best scene in a mediocre episode. If twilight had said, right from the start, that the CMC were qualified to teach but couldn't because they hadn't finished their existing formal schooling, it woul have stopped the entire episode and made the crusaders much more serious about cherilee's classes.

And seriously, what was with posey glow? I now have sore teeth and an inescapable feeling of dread.

Starlight's not mean. A little twisted, but certainly not cruel; she wasn't impressed with the evil scheme because it hurt anypony. She's also uniquely non-judgemental and empathetic.

 

And from what we saw of the classes in this episode, she's the only one whose role does make sense. I don't understand how they got from having a curriculum when they were operating under the board to, uh, this.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

There are apparently spoilers regarding her reappearing later which I think is damping speculation on what her deal might be, since some folks know slightly more and don't want to ruin it whatever it is.
