I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2018 - 01:09 PM)

There were no shelfwarmer Altenators where I lived.. Cause no one ever got them in. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (15 January 2018 - 12:57 PM)

I have Alternators Nemesis Prime since he was a shelf warmer here.

@  unluckiness : (15 January 2018 - 10:07 AM)

You wouldn't want to anyway

@  Chromedome113 : (15 January 2018 - 07:21 AM)

My first Prime was Alternators Optimus, I still can't transform him

@  Shrug : (14 January 2018 - 06:42 PM)

Ah. I'll try to remember that, but I keep forgetting "Gobots" the Autobot even existed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:02 PM)

"Gobots" is the G2 Autobot Color Changer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:01 PM)

@Shrug That would be "Go-Bots".

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 January 2018 - 03:16 AM)

At least you still had a big beefy super robot with giant guns.

@  JasperGunner... : (14 January 2018 - 01:47 AM)

My first Prime was Cybertron Prime. I was too stupid to know how to transform him lol

@  Shrug : (13 January 2018 - 11:15 PM)

My first Prime was Transmetal Primal. Second was RID Prime. My first Megatron was actually Gobots Megatron. I just didn't know he was Megatron for like 15 years. I often used him as "Roller" for RID Prime and I assume he's never really forgiven me.

@  Telly : (13 January 2018 - 10:39 PM)

my first prime was g1 prime actually in 1984. saw him at a store and begged my grandparents to give me my christmas money early lol

@  unitremover : (13 January 2018 - 10:33 PM)

Mine was Beast Machines deluxe Primal but I don't think I knew he what he was at the time.

@  Dekafox : (13 January 2018 - 09:32 PM)

My first Prime was actually LioConvoy... followed by Fire Convoy

@  Shrug : (13 January 2018 - 11:57 AM)

@Telly, but G1 Rodimus's vehicle mode is so durn sexy

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:30 AM)

PMOP was my second, and my first Optimus.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 January 2018 - 04:29 AM)

My first Prime was Power Master Prime.. And though Titans Return had Power Master Prime.. Power of the Primes feels more like Power Master Prime to me.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:17 AM)

Still wanted Hot Rod too, though.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (13 January 2018 - 04:17 AM)

I had Rodimus Prime as a kid, he was the first Prime I owned, and I loved 'im.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 January 2018 - 12:27 AM)

At least he doesn't feel like he's about to fall apart in my hands like Masterpiece did.

@  Otaku : (12 January 2018 - 11:50 PM)

As a kid, I remember being confused that Rodimus Prime and Hot Rod had separate action figures. I thought there should be one that you could change between the "two".

@  Telly : (12 January 2018 - 10:59 PM)

'86 rodimus prime was a joke, even by '86 standards. it BARELY qualified as a transformer and his face was terrible

@  Bass X0 : (12 January 2018 - 05:05 PM)

He's leaps and bounds above the original 1986 Rodimus Prime, it's unbelievable. That's more of a criticism to 1986 Rodimus Prime's simplicity though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 03:14 PM)

Rodimus is insainly complicated at first though.

@  Bass X0 : (12 January 2018 - 03:07 PM)

I like to imagine that Orion Pax has his own Cybertronian vehicle mode even though the toy doesn't have it. It would be Orion Pax evolving into Optimus Prime, but Optimus Prime cannot turn back into Orion Pax (even though the toy obviously can).

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 03:05 PM)

Orion Pax? Only into Prime's truck mode.

@  Locoman : (12 January 2018 - 02:22 PM)

Timeout. Does it convert?

@  Dekafox : (12 January 2018 - 02:06 PM)

You mean: *var mode

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 January 2018 - 01:50 PM)

*Sorry to be that guy, but *vehicle.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 01:11 PM)

I love the leaders.. Just complicated! I am semi disapointed that they didn't somehow get Orions vehical mode in there though.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 11:48 AM)

Possibly. Cause I didn't know how to transform his legs and was pulling the poor guy every whichaway

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2018 - 11:44 AM)

Maybe paladin just got the last one built on friday?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 11:42 AM)

Dunno about that... He seems pretty damn stable with as much as I was pulling and twisting.

@  Paladin : (12 January 2018 - 11:35 AM)

apparently he breaks easily. my interest has all but worn off.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 11:17 AM)

Rodimus is more complicated than I thought.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 January 2018 - 10:57 AM)

I know I said PotP was Power Masters... But Prime -really- is very much desinged like the original PM Prime

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2018 - 10:46 AM)

And BBTS finally shipped mine! Will be another two weeks till they get here, but still! At least some good news today.

This topic is for all your fan ideas that aren't actually canon, but you personally consider them canon. Thus the phrase "fanon". I figure that rather than confusing other threads like episode discussions with our ideas, we could use this thread to discuss said ideas for fun and profit.

So yeah, go wild, everypony!

The reason Princess Celestia is only referred to as Princess instead of Queen, is that Equestria neighbours Narnia, and Aslan is king.

This would also explain why they have such a similar mish mash of fantasy creatures.

Oooh! I love these kinds of things. So easy to loop around from plausible into Pinkie Pie territory.

Ok, first idea: Ponies are terraformers left over by discord as an experiment. Have to make sure they don't try and take over the universe after all!

Two: Pinkie Pie could arguably be any of the elements of harmony, as she more than the others exhibits tendencies of all 6. She just focuses on laughter the most.

Optimus Prime and Celestia are drinking buddies.

Rainbow Dash as shown in several episodes is more for doing what is right and hearing out both sides than doing what would help her friends. Loyalty should be renamed Justice.

Pinkie Pie likes to laugh, but more than anything likes to cheer up those around her as well as those who need it most. Laughter should be renamed Hope.

Rarity despite being the element of generosity has some rather greedy tendencies. Yet interestingly wants the best for her friends over herself. Rarity would be best of friends with Greed from Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood.

Starscream has been having premonitions of a gaping maw of Rainbow...

I've actually often thought the same thing about Pinkie, although I think she'd have difficulty with Magic (all her other weird abilities notwithstanding), not being a unicorn. But as far as the other, more conventional Elements go, Pinkie seems to possess a much more even balance of each. Her cutie mark is more of an interdisciplinary one than most as well, I think. For example, it's not specifically a musical symbol like Vinyl, Octavia or Lyra have; but music is an aspect of parties and she exhibits an extraordinary talent for it. The same would go for baking.

Lauren Faust established that one a while back in a dA reply. Of course, maybe magic could be used in place of the scientific techniques in our world for couples who have difficulty or can't conceive in the traditional fashion, but by and large they reproduce like any animal.

Scootaloo. Thalidomide. Forever earthbound.

In fairness, that's not just my dislike for Scootaloo talking. Actually making her a wingcripple would well be worth a decent episode (Disabled people are people do, and deserve not pity or being avoided, but respect and such. And they can do things on their own, too, thank you very much) and make her character vaguely worthwhile.

Lauren - yes, yes, I know, no longer involved - did, quite pleasantly, hint at such a thing being a vague, not entirely out of the question option, too~

For more headcanon I'd have to look through IRC logs~

I LOVE the Aslan idea! Woo, they should have an unofficial crossover icon-hotrod.gif

I like the reassessment if the Elements of Harmony too. I really don't see Dash being too loyal or AJ being honest or Rarity being too generous or Twilight bring the most friendly. Actually the last element really isn't magic at all since 'friendship is magic.' but then that element is best personified by Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. Only those two have elements that fit completely.

Love the Hope over Laughter. That makes more sense. Justice works over Loyalty. Maybe Hardworking ness over Honesty? Or Empathy? The elements has to fit with the Harmony theme.

Justice isn't really an element of friendship, which is what they're part of.
