If the characters were humans I may actually watch it. But thats never gonna happen is it?

Also, I have MLP fan art in my DeviantArt favorites, but only because they're either humanized in most of them and in others where they're not humanized there's A GIANT BATTLEMECH TAKING UP AT LEAST 75% OF THE PICTURE!!!!!!!!

There's 2 things you just can't argue with.
1. Cute girls
2. Giant Robots!

In a way, the characters could have been any other kind of animal, and it'd still be the same show. They just happened to be horses (and dragons, wolves, griffins, chimeras, and other mythical beasts). ;)

Though, this applies the FIM show. The older ones can all go crawl into a hole and fade into obscurity since their time is well over and done. Maybe the 80s one can at least be a nostalgic retro thing for women who grew up on it, but that ain't the Brony crowd (which Wal-Mart is too dumb to realize). >:oP

The pony toys have been getting better lately, but even the best MLP toy doesn't compete with even the worst Transformer toy. This isn't even a competition.

Well, as a 34-year old male who rather enjoys G1, no. It's not as good as FIM, but it's not that bad either.
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

Trust me, while there may be Bronies here, there aren't enough to overthrow the theme of this site being Transformers. ED started as an MLPFIM site; I can't see this site changing into one without Ryan either doing it himself or turning the reins of the site over to another who makes the change instead of him.

Besides, most of the Seibertronian Bronies only speak of MLP in topics or situations that pertain to MLP, like in this topic. The rest of the time, it's Transformers first, and non-TF stuff in the lower-tiered General Discussion Forum. :)


TL;DR I had to call bullshit on your attitude.

NOT ALL BRONIES ARE ANNOYING TROLLS THAT WILL PONIFY EVERTYTHING EVERYWHERE.


I'm a hardcore brony. I DO love the MLP FIM ponies. I'm also a hardcore Transformers fan. Transformers fan can be annoying too you know.
Anyway, I rarely make a pony reference here. When I'm here, I talk Transformers. When I'm on a pony site, I talk Pony.
Still there's one thing I will not accept is someone to jump me just because I mention ponies slightly in a very casual way. I love them, many love them, the fandom will be there for a very long while.

You'll have to deal with it.

Sure, feel free to hate the pony trolls who spam ponies everywhere on a whim. But please dont put us normal bronies in the same boat as the trolls.

One amusing note: Transformers are hated on the pony picture site Ponibooru. Why? I dunno. It's sad really. Can't we just get along?

At the risk of sounding cliché, give MLP FiM a chance. It's a very awesome show.
However, the toys are indeed pretty bad. Usually not show accurate at all and zero point of articulations. The toys defenders could argue that the target audience is the 5yo+ girls so that's why the toys are that way... but I'll point out that 90% of the Transformers toys have a target audience of 5yo+ boys. We all perfectly know how awesome the TF toys are. In a way, the MLP toys are still stuck in G1.

So, that's why I voted for Transformers because the poll is about the WHOLE line.
I'm a brony, yes, but I just hope the poll will not be infected by the brony vote. Some fanboys cannot see clearly. I wish that every bronies who voted for the MLP toys will be flooded with G1 toys and merchandise. It's what they WANT, right?

Also, voted cardboard box. The cardboard box cannot be beaten.

Can i just say that reading your posts and watching the evolution of your custom figures has made me LOL and put a smile on my face. I felt extremely sad reading about Scrawpsome's demise, but just as happy he got the funeral service he deserved.

Thanks, man. Now, all Scrawpsome 2.0 need is it's coat of paint. I do have the paint, Tamiya water based, but I'm affraid to mess up. So I'm waiting until I feel ready.

But, we are getting off topic.

Getting back to ponies just a little bit, I hope someone will take the licence and make FIGMA like ponies. 100% show accurate, non-brushable, but 100% articulated. Also, with a few spare faces to change the expressions. They could be 40-50$ each but if the adult market grow further, we might as well see it done. The new vinyl figures is a good sign.

That would depend on several things.

Is the MLP show being broadcast in Japan? Licensing would be an issue if not.

Also, it might be hard for Figma to market these to the Japanese market if there's no following locally. AFAIK, MLP seems to be a niche, cult success with mainly "Western" audiences. If they can't market it in Japan, I doubt they'll want to manufacture it.

I was talking about Figma like ponies. Some other company could take a licence from Hasbro and just start manifacturing these. We never know! We see more and more adult-orientd MLP merchs coming out so that type of toy is a possibility.

Oops, my bad.

Thing is, Hasbro is a toy company, and as such, isn't likely to let other companies manufacture something they could do themselves.

On the other hand, it would be a good move on Hasbro's part if they did. By simply licensing the rights to another company, they avoid the risk of the products not selling. It's also easy money, as it's the other company that's doing all the work.

You are a little late on the news, my friend...

Funko bought a licence and are making these:

The Doctor and Fluttershy are next.

They are vinyl statues just smaller than the "fashion style" ponies. I dont have a clue were to buy them at the normal price or if they are even out in Québec yet. I dont think they will ever come out here because, once again, that dumb language law.

Well, I don't exactly collect ponies, so I don't update myself on MLP news.

Those are cute, though; my niece would love them to bits...maybe literally, even.

Yeah, silly-ass government laws suck. Over here where I'm at, we've got some stupid toy safety regulation that makes it very hard to import 3rd party TF's, and somewhat risky when buying even legitimate Has/Tak TF's online. The only ones that are a safe bet are the high-end ones that are for ages 15 and up, and very obviously for adults.

After a decisive 2nd round victory over My Little Pony our beloved transforming alien robots have moved on round 3 of Mensa's Bracket Challenge. Round 3 brings an even tougher and very familiar challenger in G.I. Joe. The two franchises have been cozy and intertwined for years, but let's go ahead and show the Joes what's up!

Transformers
1980-Present - Seed 4

The boys' version of the Cabbage Patch Kids, Transformers set the toy world on its ear in 1984. Anyone and everyone just had to have these "robots in disguise." They could transform into everyday objects, usually vehicles or weapons, and a cartoon series and, eventually, films followed, turning a whole new generation on to these toys.

G.I. Joe
1980-Present - Seed 1

We know-the original figures came out long before 1981. To us, though, those were mostly just dolls. The line was relaunched in 1982, and the fighters were shrunk, turned into molded plastic, and had flexible arms, legs, and torsos-a major improvement. Soon, there was a whole line of vehicles and accessories to buy, and the brand spawned a successful TV show and movie (save your money). And don't worry, we, too, lost the weapons within days.

This will be tough. As a kid, I was more G.I. Joe than I was Transformers. But Transformers always had a place in my heart. Through time, I can definitely say The Transformers have fared better, especially after the release of their live action movies. I might still have to go with Joes on this one, though. They were a great, and thorough, and fully detailed toyline. As Transformers went on, their workmanship got worse. G.I. Joe got better. And more ambitious. YO JOE!!!
