HELLO KITTY PRIME vs MLP PRIME- the cage match!!!

Can't wait for people to come into the thread and start complaining about Bronies and how they watch a show made for little kids despite us also being fans of a show and toys that is also made for little kids.



I admit I'm a fan of the show and that's pretty much it I like the show nothing more.




Any one want to play the drinking game with me?

Are these going to be manufactured for retail sale, or are these just one-of-a-kind customs made for an event?

I wish Combiner Wars would be supplanted by a MLP:FiM/Transformers movie crossover line.

Why couldn't they have done a Megatron/Starscream instead :(

(But seriously, i thought there would be a lot of "FFS" and "you ruined the TF franchise!")

Wait for it. The thread is still young.
And I'm with you, I want to see a Megatron/Starscream version of these. Not so much "instead of" but as a set to accompany the Prime/'Bee set.

Yeah, that's right folks. I'm a Brony too. Deal with it!
It's not my fault that you die-hard TF fans are too close minded to accept anything beyond your black & white view of how a fandom should be run.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go post pics on other sites of Dr Who/transforming Autobot TARDIS with an MLP character steeping out of it just because I like to watch the world burn. :twisted:

I dunno, I'm kind of with Him on this one :P I'm so tired of Combiner Wars. I get it... next step.. evolution... everybot and his brother combines... wooo...
Comixology sent me the Combiner Wars one shot instead of the MTMTE, which is what I'm subscribed for, last Wednesday, as if to stab me with the fact that Combiner Wars is all Hasbro can think about.

I was about to say MLP is cancer, but that's an insult to cancer.

MLP is Malaria.

FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC!!!! *starts throwing Ponies around in an attempt to instill friendship through violence* :P

Funniest thing someone commented on the MLP Facebook page about this... "The fact that the plot of MLP is miles deeper than any Transformers narrative is hilarious."

Eh? Have they actually watched TF? (G1 doesn't count, it had 80's depth, which is to say none. Yes, I grew up in the 80's)

I wouldn't know about MLP, haven't watched it. But TF:P has a paper thin story that's poorly executed and then hastily wrapped up. It spent too much time trying to look gritty and dark.

I disagree, to an extent. Prime suffered "Hasbro Meddling Syndrome"
There was quite a good story there that got shuffled under by toy agendas. However, I was thinking more along the lines of Rescue Bots. Though "Hasbro Meddling Syndrome" hits there too, the character development and plot depth, for a show aimed at 2-5 year olds is pretty amazing. RID is showing early signs of depth too, but I get the feeling the network isn't airing all the shows, it seems like episodes were skipped, the plot is a bit jumpy.

MLP is actually a pretty good show, I've watched a few episodes and it has a decent plot from what I can tell. Of all the 'girly' shows, it's probably the best (The Littlest Pet Shop is utter crap)

I'm not in favor of "supplanted", but "accompanied" would be cool.
