You have mastered the art of Bulljive. You must use this power only for good, or entertainment.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

Feel free to post/request all you Pony gifs/macros here.

The episode discussion thread is for discussing the episode while the "old" Pony thread is for anything not covered by the two new threads.usoPreviewPopup

Would non-macro images/graphics and fanart also be in this thread, or is that best left to the general Pony thread?

Anyway, a new Spike GIF for the archive. I don't see it in there, anyway, and I just made it myself tonight; and haven't seen one made from this scene before anywhere else (surprisingly).

In that case, here's a cool Rainbow image that I found the vectors for, and did some tweaking. The cutie mark initially wasn't right (just a weird, jagged triangular version of the rainbow lightning without a cloud), but I imported her actual cutie mark from elsewhere and replaced it, and I extended the length of her flight trail (and of course it can be extended indefinitely at this point, depending on the desired use. I'll link as opposed to posting the image, in the interest of reducing screenrape.

Excellent! I was looking to play with the original rasterized version of that last night, but I couldn't make it anything but ugly. Can you link to the vector sources as well for arbitrary resizing/recoloring action?

Well, the original source is a PDF that I imported into Illustrator and then isolated Dash. Here's the *.ai I created from it. If you can figure out how to un-transparify her vapor trail thing and make it solid throughout (as I did in the PNG posted above, after it was rasterized), I'd appreciate it if you could let me know. I haven't done much work with vectors so far, and with all the masking layers and whatnot (though I tried alternately hiding and showing virtually every one in this file) don't make it easy.

Unfortunately, as I don't have Illustrator handy, and Inkscape doesn't like the rainbow trail, probably because of the gradient (it shows it on the import dialog but disappears when it's opened for editing), I won't be much help on that. But maybe someone else can pitch in. Thanks for posting it, though! UPDATE: Actually, the paths are there and selectable with the edit tool, but they won't take a fill color. Still working on it. UPDATE 2: I had to manually remove the mask attribute from upstream in the SVG using the XML editor in Inkscape, but now I've got it. This Inkscape SVG file has two layers; scale the group object in the top "Rainbow Trail" layer to adjust as needed; you can fade it or use a clipping path above that as desired.

Go into the groups and just pull-out the mask that matters and the color block.
It's somehow melded into the top section of each group.

Just pull out the group at the bottom, then delete the original group with the dashed underline.

So with the vectors that's a world of infinite possibilities, but here's some inspiration for people running dark themes. (Image links to 1200x800 version which fits my desktop.)

I found this the other day.
There was a black version of it, but it wasn't as appealing.


Apparently short of the original source, no one wants to host it full-size.

Well, in that case, it does work with the minimalism, but it also seems pretty unnecessary.

I'm suddenly compelled to learn how to make Inkscape go. = ) I think I'll be playing with that.

In any case, excellent wallpapers, both of you. = ) I'm nabbing pao's.

It's almost too basic, though... even for that. It doesn't seem quite so out of place in that version, but in the original graphic (which isn't nearly so minimalist) it comes across as laziness. I mean if it took me, with my lame skills, about 30 seconds to replace it, surely someone who knows what they're doing wouldn't even have to think about it.
