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

@  Paladin : (17 August 2019 - 03:59 PM)

just don't leave Cybertron Vector Prime out in the sun or his wings will melt.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 August 2019 - 03:17 PM)

@Nevermore Duly noted.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 02:12 PM)

I have three Cybertron Vector Primes, wouldn't throw them around though. I love that design too much,

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

I'm just picturing someone throwing a pile of Vector Prime toys around. I don't know why.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

@  Tieria Prime : (17 August 2019 - 02:11 AM)

Hi friends

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:05 AM)

So only if Viacom/Paramount has actively trademarked the term "multi-vector assault mode", offered goods or services under that name and has been offering those goods and services in recent years, Hasbro cannot offer goods or services under that name in the same category.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:04 AM)

And they need to be consistently used on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:03 AM)

Even if they are trademarked.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Words and terms used in dialogue shouldn't be affected.

@  Nevermore : (17 August 2019 - 02:02 AM)

Also, the trademarks only apply in commerce. You use them to identify goods and services.

@  Ashley : (16 August 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Yeah, you also need to apply for it. They might've never bothered to trademark that.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 August 2019 - 08:37 PM)

Trademark affects titles and product names, not every word in writing. For example, DC called their character "Captain Marvel" as recently as 2014.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 08:30 PM)

You missed my point. I was addressing the usage of the phrase in dialogue. Hence the quotation marks.

@  Pennpenn : (16 August 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Well, they can anyway, they might just not be able to call it that...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:54 PM)

It would be awesome for Transformers to have the likes of Overlord and Sky Lynx "engage multi-vector assault mode!"

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 August 2019 - 06:53 PM)

It is a shame that "multi-vector assault mode" is probably trademarked for Star Trek.

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 10:54 PM)

Only if they manage to boomer-proof it

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

(and would that really be a bad thing?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Wouldn't a cybernetic singularity actually remove one or more of the top levels of Maslow's hierarchy?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 August 2019 - 07:40 PM)

Tomy made some strange selections on their first wave of Tomica releases for the US

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 August 2019 - 06:26 PM)

Resistance is futile.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 06:20 PM)

I would be down for a nice cybernetic singularity if it meant we could actually reach the top of maslow's hierarchy.

@  Ashley : (15 August 2019 - 05:44 PM)

I'm pretty sure the origin of the villains in GaoGaiGar was a computer being told to reduce the stress of the population and it's answer was to assimilate everyone.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

Executions then followed by nano reanimation then cryonic suspension until everyone you know is deactivated for good so you can build happiness in a future society.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 01:47 PM)

As opposed to the ones that lie already? As a civilization: we're emotional and socially broken. Might as well have the society that at least wants us to be "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 11:48 AM)

Or you'd have a lot of people lying about their emotional state to avoid being executed.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2019 - 11:18 AM)

That would actually be a massive step up: since there's a LOT of stuff needed to quantify happiness, and it could only be an improvement over the existing governments which actually don't care if you live or die, never mind if you're "happy".

@  RichardT1977 : (15 August 2019 - 10:02 AM)

Happiness is mandatory, citizen. Failure to be happy is treason. Have a nice daycycle!

@  unluckiness : (15 August 2019 - 01:46 AM)

Maslow's hierarchy of needs

@  MrBlud : (14 August 2019 - 09:46 PM)

Humanity is pretty forgiving if you take care of its basic needs. "Freedom" and "Privacy" don't have much hold when you can't afford food, shelter, or medicine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 03:29 PM)

Something something peace through tyranny.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:43 PM)

You probably will have a house, AI overseers will crack down on stress, poverty, homelessness and human administration.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:36 PM)

The bad news is they'll probab;y be made and operated by Amazon so will record every single thing you do and transmit it to their datacenters so theycan have human operators sift through it and laugh at footage of you dancing in your socks or having intercourse.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

What if I don't have a house by then?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

If the robot will do the cleaning, I don't care if it's mandatory. I'm sick of moping floors.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 August 2019 - 02:05 PM)

humanoid service robots, one for every house in the west. ETA: 2050. household robots will be mandatory.

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 02:03 PM)

All I know is it'd be tragic if those evil robots win. I know she can beat them.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 August 2019 - 01:53 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 August 2019 - 12:22 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 August 2019 - 11:11 AM)

Yeah, could you maybe be more specific? Are they good robots? Bad ones? Do they just want to take our jobs? We need more information to work out how we feel about them.

@  Benbot : (14 August 2019 - 11:03 AM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 August 2019 - 11:24 AM)

Too good at his jobs would have caused applejack an even bigger problem. Then she wouldn't have a legitimate reason to see him off. Not wanting him to help is strictly personal, and if he was too good, the rest of the apple family would have wanted him to stay because he was useful. Not wanting him to help AND having him be legitimately bad at the work: now everyone wants him gone.

It would have changed the writing of the entire episode basically.

And probably for the better. Having to struggle with wanting to do the right thing but being reluctant to give up the free help would have been a fun twist on the concept, fitting for a show where the characters are expected to learn some moral lesson every week. I don't even remember what the moral was, this time.

Not disagreeing with you, just calling it as I see it. Frankly, I feel that spike got the short end of the stick on this being painted as incompetent outside the library. Sure he's had a few accidents, but he's mostly skilled at his tasks, and its not like he's specialized, its general skills. We already know he can cook, clean, make home repairs and keep things categorized to an anal retentive's satisfaction.

I know it was all for the sake of the episode: to give genuine reason for applejack to want things back to status quo and make it plain for the targeted audience. Still, sucks for spike. He gets enough crap thrown at him without him doing it to himself.
Per Nick Nemesis's Suggestion: I hate everything.

Fluttershy's "I said NO!" before wrecking Rainbow Dash is a clear indication that she's in assertive mode. Just look at the sudden determination on her face before doing it. There's no way that's not intended to be assertive Fluttershy. It looks like something out of Putting Your Hoof Down, also written by Williams. "You push me out the door, I drop you to the floor."

Fluttershy only wrecked Rainbow because she was between her and the exit. Spike isn't that aggressive. He's also not as hard to escape from. At worst, he'd be like the paparazzi from Green Isn't Your Color, and even that's a stretch.

I don't think Spike would drive Fluttershy crazy. She'd say no until Spike gave up, and she'd get assertive if she had to.

This episode, among others, has shown that Spike is very tenacious. He wouldn't give up just from someone saying no, and he'd eventually come up with useful suggestions. He'd probably start doing stuff without her knowledge before giving up.

Spike would start whining about not being a noble dragon. Fluttershy would find a way to calm him down.

Like giving him a job to do? Any random job?

Look at the determined expression. Look at the breathing as she starts getting pumped. This is assertive Fluttershy about to rock.

That's cool, but irrelevant. Spike wouldn't press her like that, and wouldn't stop her from running. If she did pull something like that, it would just make both of them feel bad, and make Spike feel like he owes her even more. And Fluttershy would probably feel obligated to put up with him after that.

Just off the top of my head, he could offer to do her in town shopping, something that she doesn't particularly care for. She'd probably have him count animals or plants, the same kind of busywork that Applejack assigned, and something that he didn't screw up.

Alternatively, she could go for a back scratch after a day of dealing with Angel.

That didn't work when anyone else tried it, and Fluttershy isn't a particularly skilled orator. Spike's code says that he needs to pay her back, so he has to pay her back. This wasn't about perceived nobility, it was about Spike needing to repay a debt that he owed. He doesn't care if she thinks he's still noble or not, it is something that he has to do because that is what he believes in.

Seriously, why do you think that Fluttershy would be able to talk him down when no one else could? She's easily the worst talker, and has no special skill with persuasion.

.... How is that situation vaguely similar? Fluttershy used The Stare on him because he was threatening her friends, and got him to leave while he was still reeling, rather than actually talking him down. Spike isn't threatening her friends, and he's actually trying to help her. If anything, Spike would be putting the guilt trip on her.

She did use The Stare on him while scolding him, but not while calming him down afterwards. Recall that she did get him to stop crying before he left, and she did it just by talking to him. Don't dismiss her abilities. Spike putting the guilt trip on her might work (it usually works when Rainbow Dash does it), but she might respond by talking to him and telling him he's still a noble dragon and whatever else he'd need to hear. She is good at that.

What Spike needs to hear is that she's let him help her. The red adult was, well, kinda dim, and less mature than Spike. Fluttershy was able to comfort him like he was a wild animal because he was acting like a wild animal,* and being good with animals is her talent. That wouldn't work with Spike, who actually has some reasoning behind his actions beyond losing his temper or being to lazy to move. She wasn't even able to control the crusaders, who are far younger and less mature than Spike.

While there were some funny jokes and interpersonal relations (Rainbow Dash is best sitcom neighbor), I think it made tow major missteps. I think briefly noting that he was being overzealous or perhaps he was still shaken up by the attack would have helped make him seem less OOC. Likewise, it would have been better if instead of Twilight making Dragon Code seem like a known thing, call it out as something of Spike's own creation.

That's how I felt when I saw this, I was like "Wow the plot is really lame!"

But I said that while laughing my ass off because it really had some great gags. The horrible fake timberwolf was hysterical.

I really like the way Rarity was handled. Her friends often think she's ridiculous, but here she gets to show that being dramatic is an actual skill. We may not have gotten to see far into her acting lessons, but we did get to see her perform, and she proved that she knows what she's talking about. She was great. And she was so proud of herself for it. icon-fire.gif

This episode is supposed to take place after Just for Sidekicks, which actually explains some stuff. Namely, after realizing just what a heel he was in Just, he decided to try to get his act together, and drew up a Noble Dragon Code that he would try to live up to. But since he wrote it up in response to his greedy actions, he went way overboard in the other direction.
Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Forgot about the rearranged episodes. That actually makes a ton of sense.
