Everything is f i n e

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 January 2021 - 08:30 AM)

Everything's okay until it isn't. That's life.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 January 2021 - 08:12 AM)

Oh my god... I forgot entirely about yellowstone.

@  tigerhawk : (21 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Until the third civil war. Or yellowstone, whatever's good.

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2021 - 06:01 PM)

That's not true. An adult man is in control of the White House now.

@  repowers : (19 January 2021 - 03:18 PM)

Everything's out of control.

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

I read it.

The person who did the role call was not trying his best. Seriously? An Autobot? A Decepticon? Lazy lazy.

Ian Flynn got too talky for a while there.

So I guess Soundwave with Fluttershy because of animals?

Pinkie with Shockwave because she will drive him crazy?

Im sure the solicitations gave it away already though.

I'm hesitant to pass judgment until the series is complete, though I'm enjoying it so far. Quibble Pants showing up at the beginning was cute.

What makes it hard to evaluate is that it's clearly set up to be an anthology.  Opening premise, then a bunch of 8-12 page shorts in which a pony and a Transformer team up to fight Decepticons, closed out with an endcap segment (maybe the entire final issue, maybe only half of it).  Will it stick to that formula with all the middle stories being simultaneous and disconnected, or will there be more of a through line?  Can't really tell until at least #2 comes out.

I'm not too wild about art. It suits the ponies fine, but the Transformers look like crap tbh. I haven't finished the first issue yet, so I'll reserve judgment on the story. But the art is not doing the Transformers any favors.

Finished the first issue and, honestly I'm not too thrilled. It's reading like a fanfic where the characters are only acting their parts in the most superficial way.

Rarity: I'm a pony and a fashionista. See how I surround myself in cloth and end every sentence in 'darling'?

Arcee: I'm the female of the species. See how I immediately connect with the fashionista pony because I'm so pink and dainty.

Shoot me! Only out of sheer, morbid curiosity will I check out the second issue. But if there's not a vast improvement, I'm out.

If you want something good to read, stick to the manga. It's delightful.

I really just read this out of curiosity over what an MLP/Transformers crossover would look like. But to be honest, my interest in MLP has really plummeted since the end of the series. And to be brutally honest, I really only came around the Allsparkle for the RP and your draw thread.

Vol 1 of the manga is mostly just disconnected shorts some of which set things up for later, but vol 2 ties it all together into a really good single story.

Volume 2 was a step up, but it's all been worthwhile so far. They need to greenlight an anime adaptation yesterday.

I read issue 2.

Who the hex is Gauge? I thought this was G1? What the hex is up with Shockwave's hands? Geez.

I thought the story was bots going into Equestria. So now its an exchange? Wha?

Ian Flynn is dumbing it down. He's better than this, c'mon.

Gauge is a new character from the current IDW continuity. She's (currently) the youngest Cybertronian.

So Gauge is a SHE?!?

The issue had no opportunity to give a pronoun. I legit thought Gauge was a guy!

Is that good or bad?

Lets just say, this issue does about as good a job telling you who Gauge is as the 3 part Galaxy Miniseries she had.

With issue 2, it becomes clear that none of the creators got any guidance other than "Do a crossover story," and maybe a dibs list was set up so no one would get used twice.  Because neither story in this issue fits the "Chrysalis summons a bunch of Cybertronians and they scatter around Equestria" conceit even a little.  The Grimlock/Spike story MIGHT fit into the timeline, set some time after the crisis has been resolved and a permanent link established between the worlds.  Pinkie and Gauge's story doesn't even try to be anything but a one-off gag, and certainly doesn't fit into the kinda-serious tone of #1.

 

I get the feeling this was originally pitched as a bunch of short one-shot ComiXology releases with no interconnections at all, then released as a hardcopy collection.  But too late in the game to fix things, Fleecs and maybe some of the other creators tried to make it work as a single story played out in various bits.
