I was reading some GoBots + Transformers discussion on Twitter and saw a British user point out that "BuggyMan" can sound like "boogeyman".

One of the dumbest TF ideas I ever had: Hot Rod (by whatever means) produces a son, who is named "Go-Cart".

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 August 2019 - 04:10 AM)

Let me call on my friend Dr Rockso, the Rock 'n Roll Clown. (He does cocaine.)

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 August 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Babylon 5 must come to Blu Ray.

@  Pennpenn : (19 August 2019 - 03:06 AM)

Everyone quickly gets sick of flubbing the name and collectively agree to just call the combiner "Roadworks"

@  Sabrblade : (18 August 2019 - 09:34 PM)

For some reason, I've always wanted to see a "Menastator", all five Stunticons and all six Constructicons in an 11-piece combiner.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Paladin : (18 August 2019 - 01:30 PM)

somehow read that as "Megachronic." wonder if Decepticons get the munchies...

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 August 2019 - 11:30 AM)

Skywarp can barely form a coherent sentence half the time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

If Cyclonus combines into Galvatronus, does Skywarp form Megatronic?

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2019 - 09:12 AM)

There's something weird about starting to type Good Omens into a media store's search bar and having it come up with Queen's greatest hits compliations.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2019 - 12:07 AM)

Well then they need to re-release Vector Prime. :D Of course I would accept Vector Prime Headmaster with Alpha Trion as the head.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

That said, the bendy sword is ridiculous.

@  unluckiness : (18 August 2019 - 12:05 AM)

I dunno, the old one is still pretty good by modern standards and the clunkiness is somewhat in-character.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

We need a new vector prime

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.

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.
