A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

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.

@  ▲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.

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

@  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.

Wait so if Blueblood isn't Celestia's nephew... then why is he a prince?

More to the point, if he's not Celestia's nephew then why did Rarity say he was and why didn't Twilight Sparkle question her when she said he was since Twilight is Twilight??.


IIRC, Lauren had said he's a "Distant relation" but not actually a nephew.

Of course, that's just because Lauren won't admit to the Dark History of Ponyville, as I detail in my signature icon-fire.gif

OTOH, it is totally in-character for Blueblood to tell people he's a Prince.

Those in Canterlot quietly roll their eyes, but poor Rarity didn't know any better.

Scavs and TM2-Megs are both correct. Lauren did indeed mention it many months ago. I grabbed this screen shot back when Lauren first mentioned it. This was way back before "The Best Night Ever" aired, back before anypony knew what his real name was.



Now, back to Luna Eclipsed......

I really like Luna's new look and I fully approve of it. I love the flowing mane and tail she has. Her coat is darker and she appears much taller than she was in the Season 1 pilot. It's like she aged quite a bit in the short amount of time she has been back. It really is quite a difference between her S1-E2 look and her new look.

I find the theories for her difference in looks to be interesting. Though, I like to think that when she was imprisoned for 1,000 years, that she had to of been in some kind of suspended animation. I hate to think that she was fully aware of the passage of time for 1,000 years with absolutely nothing to do, nothing to eat or drink, and nopony to talk with. 1,000 years of total isolation and solitude in those kinds of conditions, I would think, would drive anypony insane. So I prefer to think that she was in suspended animation during that 1,000 years. When she came back from her imprisonment and was freed from being NMM, I would think that her difference in looks between S1-E2 and S2-E4 is the result of her body quickly aging and catching up to what she would have actually looked like if she had never been sent to the moon for 1,000 years.

When Luna was freed from being NMM at the end of S1-E2, Celestia did say to Luna and I quote; "It has been a thousand years since I have seen you like this." That would indicate that how Luna looked in S1-E2 was how she looked before she became NMM. Based on that, I would not think that Luna had her newer S2-E4 look 1,000 years ago, got turned into NMM, then 1,000 years later is freed from being NMM resulting in her being in a smaller "depowered" self, then gradually getting back her newer look after many months of regenerating her power. Based on Celestia's S1-E2 quote, that just doesn't make much sense to me. So I just continue to prefer the suspended animation theory.

Overall, I fully enjoyed Luna Eclipsed. Of all the costumes everpony was wearing, I liked Zecora's best.

Something I noticed... did those pegasi pulling Luna's carriage had bat wings?



And weird ears too... So what sort of a sub-species of pony are these? Were-bat-pegasi? icon-fire.gif

Otherwise - my favourite season 2 episode so far, and I thought Q in MLP would be hard to top. So many background characters re-appearing, and Luna was just awesome.

Well, I mentioned on ED before about Warehouse 13's method of containing dangerous individuals: freeze them and encase them in bronze. Their mind is still awake and they can think, but they're in perpetual darkness and probably silence.
This was something I was hoping would be covered because I was afraid to hear Luna was actually awake for the thousand years, watching the world turn and unable to do anything.

Two more things observed:

1. If you look closely in the background when the young filly is crying that she wanted to be a Zombie next year, you can see that the elder pony comforting Pipsqueak is Carrot Top. His older sister/Mother perhaps? She is also the only adult pony other than Zecora, the mayor, and Twilight Sparkle who accompanies Pipsqueak's trick or treating group of children to dump candy at Nightmare Moon's status at the end of the episode.


It looks to me like that's Carrot Top comforting Dinky, not Pip; which actually kind of goes with the fanon theory that Derpy and Carrot are friends and maybe Carrot's keeping an eye on Dinky during the trick-or-treating.
