Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Telly : (21 February 2020 - 02:31 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2020 - 08:44 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

Apparently, they were right. Her canon personality destroyed fanon. I almost can't wait for the end of the episode when she's more adjusted.

I like how they kept Luna's speech with the traditional way like it would of been a thousand years ago giving the impression she has a lot of catching up to do.

What I don't get is if they have a holiday dedicated to NNM, how come nopony recognized her in the first episode?

I think I'll actually wait to watch this one 'til later tonight. It seems a bit wrong to watch a Halloween episode in the harsh light of morning.

Princess Luna sure was different to how the fandom has depicted her. I predict a lot of fans not liking it.

Personally, I think I'm OK with how she was potrayed. She's been banished to the moon for a thousand years so her social skills are going to be lacking. Add to the fact that most ponies will be asleep when she's awake then that leaves little room for social interaction. She's a princess and thinks that she has to behave in the traditional regal way, which unfortunately is quite scary to most ponies. It makes sense, if she has always been that way, why she got so angry in the first place and became NMM.

All in all I'd say it was a great episode and I found myself laughing a lot throughout, mostly at Chickie Pie and her antics. The Derpy cameo was great (though anyone who saw the spoiler saw it coming). Pipsqueak was cute and needs to make an appearance again. I'm disappointed that Rarity didn't make an appearance at all. Her dress making skills would've been perfect for making an awesome costume. Though I suppose there wasn't really any need for her in the story.

Poor Fluttershy. Nightmare Night is probably the worst night of the year for her icon-fire.gif

She's hard to understand with her Traditional Royal Voice.

She has aspects of fanon. Prankster, maladjusted, she became a bit timid...


I missed a lot of Twilight's dialog walking into town during the streaming which was much easier to pick-out in the youtube.


And Derpy appearing one place then appearing inside something else is now canon.

The CMC had background roles, overshadowed by Pip, but it's nice they at least had one scene together.

I'm left with more questions than answers. Is Luna's lack of tact just a consequence of continuing younger sibling syndrome? I can't imagine Celestia didn't warn her; did she just ignore the advice? Where did this holiday even come from, considering nopony even recognized her in the pilot? Why does everypony--except Pinkie Pie, whose own lack of tact is just because she thinks she's being played--react with such fear to the Luna that they already saw transformed as if she was still NMM? And what were Celestia and Luna doing all those many years ago that ponydom had apparently failed to discover "fun" in her time?

And for all that, Luna is "fixed" in one night?

I'll need to rewatch it after taking some time to think about it. There was some nice animation, and I really enjoyed the variety of the costumes. The story didn't seem entirely consistent with the world we are aware of, and even Luna's character seems flawed in a way her older sister isn't. And the Derpy cameo seemed a bit forced.

  • Zecora wins. As usual
  • Socially Awkward Luna with thousand year old attitudes was awesome. Absolutely perfect, and exactly what one should expect when one thinks about it. The public - and Fluttershy's - reaction to her as well
  • Being rather fond of spiders, the spider scene probably lost something to me. I thought they were cute :<
  • Pipsqueak already dividing the fandom. Calling it now: He'll join the CMCs in episode six. And there'll be many tears and much rage
  • The ending was a little bit rushed - essentially what Pao said in this regard
  • Rainbow Dash, Y U breaking it :<
  • Luna has Rarity's VA (I think? At least that's what everyone says <_<) and Rarity's sarcasm. No Rarity in this episode. The conclusions are inevitable :x
  • More seriously, apparently Rarity was cut out of the episode (Compare episode with previously-released screenshot of the Apple-diving, pre-season). I guess it's to avoid clashing with Luna due to the shared VA. Still a pity :<
