@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

Whoo! Masterpiece Sunstreaker!

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:40 AM)

Less said about the Sinclair Microdrive, the better...

@  Anonymous X : (22 May 2017 - 10:23 AM)

I had two ZX Spectrum games on cartridge. Played 'em loads as it beat having to wait ten minutes for unreliable tape loading...

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

*dies*

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

and there weren't any rocks yet, they were all space dust

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

I remember when there was no internet

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

dont remember what it was called, but i had an internet answering machine software back in the day. turn it on when i was online and i wouldnt miss a call. would leave it off if i didnt want to be bothered though lol

@  Noideaforaname : (21 May 2017 - 08:46 PM)

Remember when it was either the phone OR internet? Remember when photos had to be developed? And if someone decided to take pictures of their eye you couldn't tell until you got the film back?

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 06:02 PM)

You're making us old farts feel old!

@  Foffy : (21 May 2017 - 05:20 PM)

Not me! I couldn't have known that in 1991! I wasn't even born yet!

@  Bass X0 : (21 May 2017 - 01:03 PM)

You only just realised? Everybody else has known that since 1991.

@  unluckiness : (21 May 2017 - 10:34 AM)

Holy jeez, Guile's theme does go with anything.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2017 - 04:34 AM)

The "humans as processors" bit was also used in season 2 of Dollhouse.

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:59 AM)

That is nonsense. Also, some men in black suits and sunglasses will be arriving at your doorstep shortly. Please cooperate and it will go much easier for you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (20 May 2017 - 03:42 AM)

It's not bull, the elite are using the 90% through wifi for their Androcide agenda. Learn the undisprovable truth.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:18 PM)

Although I think I remember hearing somewhere that the "clouds" darkening the sky are actually swarms of constantly-muliplying nanomachines? No idea if that's canon or not, but if it is it seems like that'd be something the machines themselves could figure out how to undo if they really wanted to

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:16 PM)

I dunno, for all their technical achievements those humans seemed just as shortsighted as in the present. And they were desperate by the time that was done, so it wouldn't surprise me if they just thought "ah, we'll figure out how to undo it later"

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:00 PM)

Also gotta wonder if the humans had some idea of how they were going to fix the sky, presuming they won out, because otherwise they were basically commiting suicide out of spite and the Matrix would be the only reason humanity is still alive.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 09:07 PM)

One of the first things I thought myself after my first time through it

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Every time I watch "The Second Renaissance" I get the feeling I'd probably end up getting shot for being a machine sympathizer.

@  Noideaforaname : (18 May 2017 - 10:36 PM)

Yeah, Ghostbusters. Specifically the episode where they check out the live action Hollywood "adaptation."

I'm sick of this Pony jive being shoved down our throats by you bronies. You've taken what's a rather enjoyable show for little girls (and god knows how long it's been since that happened last) and you've made it into the most obnoxious internet meme and fan group that enrages me to a point not even furries/ICP fans/street mimes could elicit from me. This comes from a guy who lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years and had to deal with hugging Anthrocon weirdos in person.

Of course I'm going to be called all sorts of names after this. I don't care. My problem isn't with the show, even though I think if it had remained more story-based like the pilot it might've been worthy of the love you all seem to give it, it's with you. I feel embarrassed for you. Something I've never felt for myself in about 15 years of toy collecting and yet I cringe everytime I see a grown man gushing about Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash. I can't wait until this hipster fad dies out, hopefully some of you will see sense before your brain cells all meet the same fate.


I'm just amazed it elicits such a strong reaction, especially since the two fandoms aren't that dissimilar.

Even the same parent company.

While that all sounds semi-impressive, you lost any credibility when you planned to get your gf back by making a TF/MLP crossover to try and get you noticed by Hasbro as part of some bizarre convoluted plan. Yeah, you say it's a joke but jokes have to be funny fyi.

Is it wrong that I kind of want to throw in support for the TF/MLP crossover just to tick off the people who seem compelled to enter a topic they know they're going to hate (I mean, really, what did they think this was going to be about?) just for the purpose of expressing how much they hate/don't care about the topic and then challenge anyone who says differently?

Of course the response to this is going to be that everyone should be free to express their opinions regardless of being positive or negative and then the response to that will be that there seems to be little point in doing so when your mind is already made up and the sum total effect of doing so is to raise your blood pressure and make you look like an intolerant jerk, after which the responses will degrade into name calling and general irritability. So lets just cut to the chase and call it a day, hm?

Scathing sarcasm aside, the idea of a My Little Pony/Transformers crossover line actually sounds... kind of cool. Assuming the budget would support quality design. Equines are something not often (ever?) touched on in Transformers, despite the appearance lending itself quite nicely to a transformation using the legs as limbs. Hell, if we can have nonsensical Star Wars/Marvel crossovers, why not this?

Especially if we get one of Doctor Whooves. A three-way crossover that would win my support any day of the week icon-fire.gif

Actually, I frequently make jokes at my own expense concerning just how absurd my life gets at times; I've made a few here on the Allspark, and those who've been reading my fic on Lexicon (transformersfanfic.com) have seen entire story arcs based on me poking fun at different things that are going on (like the day that I tried to cancel my contract with a former internet service provider, only for them to try and up-sell me).

As an example,

QUOTE
"Wow. With all this drama going on, it sounds like we're characters in a fic written by a guy who desperately needs a job and a girlfriend."


At the time I wrote that joke, I was between jobs and between girlfriends. By the time I finally got around to publishing the chapter said joke was in, I'd come full circle; my temp job was over with, and I'd parted ways with my then-GF.

Heck, if I actually do get on with Hasbro, my page at the Wiki'd be more absurd than a Uwe Boll film ("Can honestly state that he was born in three different locations at the same time.").

Or heck, they could always do a MLP / Joe crossover: Cobra Commander has kidnapped Princess Celestia in order to get at the kingdom's vast wealth, and so the Joes and the Ponies must team up (JOE CALVARY!) in order to save the day.

I'm just amazed it elicits such a strong reaction, especially since the two fandoms aren't that dissimilar.

Even the same parent company.


I don't think they're similar at all, and being owned by the same company has nothing to do with anything. I see your avatar though so I don't think there's much point to arguing with you.

I don't remember TF fandom having any equivalent of "welcome to the herd". That just feels like identity assimilation, and honestly, that creeps me out. Seriously, can't a person enjoy something without having to associate with a particular collective?

Burn it x infinity.

I'm sick of this Pony jive being shoved down our throats by you bronies. You've taken what's a rather enjoyable show for little girls (and god knows how long it's been since that happened last) and you've made it into the most obnoxious internet meme and fan group that enrages me to a point not even furries/ICP fans/street mimes could elicit from me. This comes from a guy who lived in Pittsburgh for 2 years and had to deal with hugging Anthrocon weirdos in person.

Of course I'm going to be called all sorts of names after this. I don't care. My problem isn't with the show, even though I think if it had remained more story-based like the pilot it might've been worthy of the love you all seem to give it, it's with you. I feel embarrassed for you. Something I've never felt for myself in about 15 years of toy collecting and yet I cringe everytime I see a grown man gushing about Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash. I can't wait until this hipster fad dies out, hopefully some of you will see sense before your brain cells all meet the same fate.

They're both "kiddie" franchises that each have a large segment of adult fans.

I just don't get how you're willingly part of one (or MORE judging by your Kamen Rider avatar) yet think the other somehow deserves belittling insults about their mental capacity.

Of all the things to get bent out of shape over, this seems like it should be somewhere near the bottom.

It's just a phase, like Pokemon, Power Rangers, and Ninja Turtles, among others. Those things are all still around, but things have settled considerably with them.

This is a TERRIBLE and HILARIOUS thread for somebody with an aversion to be reading.

re: Pony crossover.
Best thing to do is get some pony toys, and some Transformers, and then put them on the same shelf. That is one of the more frequently overlooked yet totally awesome aspects of the brand.

A pony Transformer isn't impossible. I mean we got awesome stuff that didn't really have any in-brand precedence all over the United line. Like the 2010 Highbrow or random blue re-colors of The Fallen that don't really fill any demand. "Pony" isn't a specific brand thing like all the G.I.Joe stuff. There's a lot of reasons not to do a pony, but those same reasons apply to a lot of things Hasbro does frequently.

A full-on crossover is... less likely.

Woooo!

^This. Like I said before, this a is a cute, well made show for girls and I think people could admire that more if OMGPINKIEPIEISSORANDOMKAWAII wasn't being shoved in their face by bronies.

And Liege, you're words really have had an effect on me. It made me relise I've shouldn't care about what others think of me, I should only care about what I think of myself.

Liege is a small dude with a lot of wisdom.

Well one of those descriptive words is accurate I suppose!

Much like Inspector Spacetime, the Internet has indeed ruined any enjoyment I may have potentially derived from MLP.
