    Hey look! It's one of those milestones that Vangelus actually would hate to acknowledge because it's just a number! Oh, and good, the Roswell discussion is here.

    I admit, just hearing the music for that stupid goddamn game made me check on my game several times in this episode.

    You win this round, Vangelus.

    OK, as a resident TFW2005 Brony let's the Equestria girls thing mentioned and done with.

    Yes it is a blantant that this is Hasbro trying to get into the Barbie Market, as far as the synopsis of the TV Movie is conserned

    It's already been said that a Proper TV series will follow, and outside of the movie the two shows will not affect each other.

    And to answer another of your questions Vangelus, Yes "Friendship is Magic" is written Strongly enough and in such a way that charecters could be Human, Smurfs, or whatever and people whould still love the Charecters for who they are.

    Equestria Girls in my veiw storywise is just a change in the setup and senario of the show, as long as the charecters are written well with thier established personallities it could have some very good merits of it's own.

    Now we can finally see the not-Optimus Prime center of our Masquarade combiner!

    [​IMG]

    This set was suggested on the cybertron.ca board back in August. We really need the not-Small Foot.

    [​IMG]

    You could always make Bikemurder be a custom class figure, then it can use a Hasbro mold:

    For a Transformers series where all the heroes are human, I think Masterforce would be it. Almost all the heroes were either human or could pretend to be human.

    How about a modern series where all the characters are Masterforce style Pretenders. Optimus Prime actually looks like human Peter Cullen in armor, etc.

    Indeed. I just find the high school setting a bit off-putting.

    omg...IT IS!

    I would buy the heck out of that Sideswipe repaint.

    Ross will forever be great in my eyes even if it has a dumb name because that's where I got HFTD Lugnut for $10.
    Also I was playing the stupid game when Vangelus started... and then he started exploring the exact same level I was in and it kinda weirded me out!

    Aaron mentioned that the turtle shell canopy on Bulkhead doesn't cover anything, but it actually blocks his light piping, which makes eyes inside the visor. Sort of has this Prometheus-style helmet look to it.

    And it's not a side effect of the weird clear plastic horns, because covering them doesn't affect it.

    Love thoose concept pics! But i agree that Masterforce was as close to the human transformers as you can get. I would love to see pretenders come back in full, but i think Hasbro wouldn't take the risk of doing the whole series revolved around it.

    With a little retooling of Motormaster into Prime and the other Stunticons into the Autobots, FansProject would have a hit.

    I think it would work better with pilot call signs for mecha pilots.

    Frank "Megatron" van Sustern
    Peter "Optimus" Collins
    Chris "Starscream" Phillils
    Dan "Bumblebee" Smith

    etc.

    Hearing Aaron talk about Andyroo... it hits home a lot for me. I just want to say... I want him to beat this. I want Andy to win.

    But...
