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

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 consider the fanfic Canterlot Follies as fanon, myself.

I really like the way the Canterlot Noble titles are organized there, especially the title "Princette".

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.
