A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

Available on iTunes, so good a time as any to start a thread on it:

QUOTE
Hearts and Hooves Day: "The Cutie Mark Crusaders create a love potion to make Miss Cheerilee and Big Macintosh fall in love but quickly regret their actions when the couple starts spouting lovey-dovey baby talk."


HIGHLIGHT to view:
Awesome song, brief appearance by Twilight-no other main cast this week, and Derpy sighted at both 3:31 and at 4:11.

Discuss.

First Post! =D

Wait, does this mean Big Mac will get more speaking line now? Also, this does seem a bit of an odd pair up if you ask me. If any thing, I would hope he would try to hook up with one of the mane six. Seems like a bad fanfic got made into a episode.

WHAT!? I read rumors of it earlier, but it's true! Why the heck does iTunes already have it up a few days before the actual air date? It must be some kind of huge error on iTunes part. There is going to be some massive spoilage going on before Saturday.

I can't imagine Hasbro/The Hub being at all happy with the fact that the episode they have been promoting for the last week or so has been leaked 2 days early. iTunes have got some explaining to do.

With that aside, this was an awesome episode! There were some very funny moments in it.

Figures, the one time Apple does something that pleases me it's probably a massive screw up on their part for which they'll no doubt be apologizing profusely. Ah well; better them than me.

Haven't watched the episode yet, but I am downloading now. I'll probably watch it when I get home this evening.

I don't see what's supposed to be funny about that picture.
But i do see two Bonbons, but only one Lyra.
Also two Carrot Top's, Berry Punch's and a red pony with yellow many/tail i do not know the name of.

Not funny as such, but considering the theme of the episode (Hearts and Hooves day) and the fact that they've paired up Lyra and Bon-Bon, along with Doctor Whooves and Derpy, could be a little nod to the fact that those are common pairings in the fandom.

It could also just be purely coincidental of course.

Dunno how much you know about Doctor Who, but he's always had a companion or two throughout his journeys through time and space, so it makes sense for him to have a pony companion.

Derpy was often designated as the Doctor's companion for the pony universe, about as much as Twilight was, really, but it kind of grew out of that.

It's not a ship I like, myself, but I generally don't have Doctor Whooves in my fanon.

Also, I will reiterate, this episode was awesome. One of my favourite yet.

And Big Mac finally got some more lines, even if it was mostly sappy stuff.

Some of the ponies seen during the song were pretty weird, but this guy takes the prize:

I think the Derpy/Doctor shipping was based purely on their fan names both ending in Hooves. Someone decided that it meant they were married, and it was off to the races.

ETA: Although adult-Derpy background ponies in flashback sequences tended to cement the fanon that she was at least a Companion.

Of course! Because Cheerilee isn't there to teach them. It all makes sense now!

Stream of consciousness while watching.
  • Scootaloo's flying? There goes my Thalidomide headcanon icon-screamer.gif
  • Cheerilee Rubber Legs! Didn't the make-ofs that used to be on youtube say that was a bad idea? ^^
  • Sweetie Belle hitting a little too close to home? <_<
  • Some of the roofs look... Interesting. Btw, Congate and the white + blue mane/ tail pony are a good match~
  • >She deserves one of the best stallions as her very special somepony
    Jesus christ, was that intended?
  • Well, it's difficult to identify an Apple tree when you're not from the Apple fam- oh wait <_< Cheerilee's expression is priceless
  • Twilight's other book is the one with the whole NMM shenanigans in it. Damn, I want that book. All that history~ Cute annoyed expression from Twilight, btw
  • ?_O @ the rainbow-sucking
  • Sweetie Belle is so adorable~
  • And this is why you don't do drugs~ Big Mac in love is made of so much win. Liked how Cheerilee obviously saw through the whole deal yet played along after a fashion, btw. Fits her perfectly~
  • CMCs breaking it. Business as usual~ The facedesk is appropriate
  • The Appleocalypse!
  • Rarity's sink (Suited for Success) and fainting couch (Lesson Zero) reappear! Ah, the usefulness of props...
  • Big Mac doing the Pinkie hop... I lol'd IRL
  • Strong Big Mac is really... Really strong
  • Berry Punch realises that she's drinking too much...
  • Pissed Cheerilee is awesome. Here as well as in The Return of Harmony Part 1~ I love how she's sweet but not without limits, btw. Knows when to put her hooves down, makes her a lot easier to relate to - for kids as well, I imagine

tl;dr: Awesome episode
