(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

Oh, I totally agree. This actually was a great ending, suitably epic, brought in so many of they characters we've gotten to know over the years, followed by a retrospective. Most of all, it was given a prime time spot! I'm glad it ended this way, certainly as apposed to a lot of shows that simply...stop.

And Simpsons really does need to end.

On the term G4, how come Transformers doesn't use it past G2?

And, I could just look it up but
G1 - fantasy adventures with the three humans?
G2 - er, slice of life
G3 - uh, the weird flash baby versions?
G4 - friendship is magic

So, who didn't we see in the finale? Iron Will was there. Were the villains skipped?

Btw, my friends and I paused to see if Discord had a wedding ring, hehe

Now just caught the finally, the last Ep was kind of nice, Twilight Coronation was certainly a disaster, at least not wrecked by the villians but instead Twilight's friends, thou I am kind of questioning Twilight's lodgic in regards to travel, its shown she clearly capable of teleporting herself and her friends over great distances, so travelling by train? What I do wonder is what Luna & Celestia's retirement place looks like, of course, then there is Flurry Heart, what she looks like grown up, the only glimspe is a stainglass window in the background, so she clearly done something important to get that.

 

In all a good ending, its a reasonably well thought out ending and the final ep focusing on the show core value, friendship, also seeing Pinkie gotten a kid and the cake twins grown up and likely the baby sitters of Pinkie's kid, Fluttershy is clearly living with Discord, Angel Bunny seems to have been rather busy banging up the female rabbits or at least one, so its clear the people who produced the ending truly acknowledged the fandom and their shipping of certain characters, so the ending they stuck to it and gave a good ending to a good show thou personally, not a large fan of the last song but it was nice, so whatever comes next, hopefully it be well written and thought out.

I think I've yet to see a show end quite as well as this one did. It left it up to the imagination all the adventures they had after the coronation, and the ones yet still.

 

So... now what?

It's possible that Pinkie wasn't the only one of the Mane 6 to have kids, just the only one to have a kid young enough to be dragged along to meetings.  We know enough time has passed that the toddler Cake twins are now adults, and it's strongly implied that Luster Dawn is the child of Sunburst and SG.  So there could be other kids who are the same age or slightly younger than LD, but old enough to be left to their own devices during the council meetings.  (They might even be at the School of Friendship, which is a boarding school.)

IDW Season 10 comics, at least.  And the clip shows, and the second movie.  There'll still be enough content to tide us over until G5.

 

(BTW, Transformers had an official Generation 2, unlike MLP where it has generally been a fan term from the start.  I guess Beast Wars never picked up "G3" in part because G2 was official and Hasbro never called anything else G3.  I do recall some knockoff packaging that claimed to be G3....)

I think what would be nice is a MIP FIM Next generation and tell a brand new story of another generation of ponies and see the original characters in a new era as a surporting characters.

I believe it was the G3 trailer for Classics/Henkei Optimus prime by Fansproject, Hasbro hasn't used Generation aside from the line name for the figures aimmed partly at adult collectors after G2, in terms of Generations we are on G8 or 9 for TF, then again it might be G10, I think, it depends how you decide to count the Generations, example BW & BM being one generation as they fit together with loose ties to G1.

I think with Transformers, its harder as a whole to determine "generation" Do you count each line individually? Each "era" (Beast Era, UT, Aligned, etc)? What about when there are multple lines going at once which has been a factor for the past decade?

Oh so Pony G1-G4 is not a recognized term by Hasbro? Just a fan thing? Ok.

Hey, this was supposedly released online on the final ep too? The actual pilot ep for MLP?



Love the steaming part. Also, it represents unicorn, pegasus and Earth pony. Was Fluttershy, Rarity, Applejack not suppose to be included?

The misconception is in calling "MLP Tales" "G2." Is isn't. It may be the second cartoon series that was made, but the toys the characters are based on are still technically G1.

G2's toyline was only 1997-1998 (and then Europe only until 2003). It never got a cartoon show.
