People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

They're pretty different, but that's a good thing. Clear plastic wings just don't end well.

Can't actually see her mane in that, but I'm assuming it's there... icon-waspy.gif Looks pretty good. Would've been cool if they could've made the wings transparent, though.

Yeah, those have been around a while. Rarity, a butterfly-winged Rainbow Dash, and "Ploomette" (she does not so much fly as...).

Or at least the right shape. But this is from the people who gave Lyra weird-shaped eyes for no apparent reason, when all of the background ponies actually have the same simple eye style as Rainbow Dash.

Hasbro learned their lesson about transparent wings way back in G1 with the Flutter Ponies. One could describe them as a kind of GPS for MLP.

I'm actually kind of surprised no one's tried to customize them, at least from what I've seen. With a mane, tail, and cutie mark change, Rainbow Dash could easily become Morning Glory or potentially Peach Blossom, and Ploomette could be Honeysuckle or possibly Lily.

Had I the money, I'd totally try it.

I'm not going to complain about Lyra's eyes. The fact that they're making a Lyra toy at all and using the name fans gave her is awesome enough in my book.

The Flutter ponies were incredibly breakable, but these little guys were amazingly durable:



I wish Hasbro had made the wings about that size instead of those huuuuuge ones Rarity got. Poor girl looks like she's about to fall over backwards.

As for Ploomette . . . he is obviously a FABULOUS DRAG QUEEN.

You know. Because peacocks.

Windy Wings I believe they were called. Cute little things, almost like baby Flutter Ponies. I think their wings were closer to the animated portrayal of the Flutter Pony wings than the toy portrayal.

I HEAR YOU GUYS LIKE PONIES.

I GUESS YOU DON'T WANT THIS AWESOME GRIFFON TOY THEN.



No one's sure what set Gilda and her compadres--or rather, her blood enemies--will turn up in. They look to be about blind bag size, but I am thinking they may not be actual blind bag toys.

I knew it! icon-fire.gif I wonder if this is what Hasbro meant when they hinted that they working on more Brony-friendly stuff. These don't just capture the characters' appearances, but a bit of their personalities as well, which is very difficult to do. That Gilda is especially impressive. The pose and eyes are perfect.
