I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2020 - 10:26 PM)

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

Hmm, never thought of it like that before. But then, I'm also not familiar with any of those things being memes. The only meme I know of regarding Fluttershy doing something that wasn't already from the show was Fluttershy-with-a-juice-box. Am I just behind the curve?

Besides, everyone in the show is aware of the fourth wall. The other are just better at not staring at the camera.

Director:" CUT! Take ten while we check the gate."

Spike lights up a cigarette, applejack cracks a beer, a make up pony trots out to glue pinkie's cutie mark back on. Twilight plays on her smart phone and rarity doffs her wig and scratches her head. Fluttershy screams at the animal handlers to get the damn things away from her, and rainbow dash demands to be let off the fly by wire setup.

All the while the producers curses the whole lot of them, and the hasbro rep counts his money while raiding the craft services table.

Hahaha. Yes. Just like Roger Rabbit. Twilight is still kicking herself over being suckered into doing her own stunts. When her horn started heating up in Too Many Pinkie Pies, it was because Twilight was actually casting a spell instead of just adding them in post like they usually do. They dropped the cut where Twilight panicked and dunked her head in a bucket of water.

It's not that you're behind the curve so much as it is that I have spent way too much time on dA since joining the herd.

I want to know...just how much does Zecora know? Upon rewatching, she didn't say she taught Twilight everything but rather that Twilight completed all of her lessons. Zecora has been shown to have a massive amount of magical knowledge even though she lacks unicorn style spell casting. I've had this curiosity for a while, aided by the fact despite being on good terms with Ponyville, she still willingly lives in the Everfree Forest.

With Pinkie Pie, why this episode? While there's some episodes where she badly needs to be put on mute, it's sad that it happened in the episode where she's trying to defend her family's livelihood. I guess that's amplified by my desire to know more about her background. Was surprised at the number of people who thought the rock farm was made up.

The only one of Zecora's lessons that we saw was focusing on, well, focus, something that Twilight Sparkle can have trouble with. Magic in this setting seems to rely on focus, so it's a good lesson, but Zecora wasn't showing a lot of magic of her own.

I think that she's an alchemist or herbalist, but her knowledge of the magic of plants and animals can be more generally applied. She also seems to be a literal Witch Doctor, as she knows how to fix or fight magical ailments. The only magic she's been implied to have seemed to be stage illusions, but she still knows how spell casting magic works.

I really want to know more about Zecora's backstory. So much stuff they could do with that.

That's what makes it interesting. She's that super informed mentor who genuinely can't do the things the "chosen one" needs to do as opposed to just sitting in a cave somewhere. It's also interesting that Zecora (and to a lesser degree, Pinkie) specializes in more broad Old World type information as opposed to specific wizard spells.

Maybe Zecora does have awesome powers and just hasn't felt the need to reveal them to anyone yet.

Knowledge is power. Twilight is considered so powerful because she can use so many different kinds of magic, not just because she can lift heavy weights. The duel in this episode focused on quantity of tricks just as much as quality.

Zecora knows how to use the fauna of the Everfree to make a number of potions, was able to diagnose a dragon, and knew enough about magic duels and magicians to come up with a winning strategy. She might not have cast spells, but she's a pretty decent Batman kind of character, a niche that no one else in the show fits.

If we never get to see Zecora outmaneuver and defeat a spell caster without using any magic herself, I'll be really sad.
