Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

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 :<
