Dean Pelton: “This better not awaken anything in me.”
Season 1, episode 10: “Environmental Science”
Right after I took the picture she rolled over the paper.
I had this idea that was sort of a cross between Equestria Girls and Community Season 3: while pony Twilight Sparkle is visiting and having adventures with the girls, what happened to the human Twilight Sparkle who lives in the city and was mentioned by Pinkie Pie in the first Equestria Girls movie? And from there the germ of the idea turned into a Twilight Sparkle who snapped when she somehow found out that her lifetime without friends could have been rectified, but not while the interloper from the pony dimension was still there!
I have no idea why I haven’t been hired by Hasbro Studios yet.
Toy Biz’s 2000 X-Men movie line included a Mystique with a rubber Wolverine disguise, so you could re-enact that scene from the movie where Hugh Jackman is bloated and constipated and swaying his hips like a supermodel.
man it is so good seeing people from RDN on here
it’s actually like throwback thursday but like RIGHT NOW
There are a lot of us around. Hiding. Waiting. Fighting over boxes.
they are waiting 4 their queen
There was a queen once but she went missing. The closest we have now is Gherkin. The throne is open if you want it.
I will not stand for this insurgency against Gherkin!
I supported Queen Flaredancer since she won the bikini competition and rightfully claimed the throne but she abandoned the kingdom.
And now that we have a new queen you just throw him under the bus!?
OFF WITH HIS HEAD
I got X2 Toys’ Strengthen Equipment like, weeks ago, and it’s taken me until now to find my superglue and unbreak it. When fiddling with the orange rig on Hoist’s back and trying to make sure the wing was correctly on the ball joint, I pushed it a little too hard and it snapped clean off. You can see in the rear view photo where I’ve glued a bit of a paperclip in as a support rod.
Ironically, given its name, Strengthen Equipment doesn’t seem too sturdy. Beyond the part I’ve already broken,the two minuscule orange tabs that peg in the… radar panels? Huh. seem destined to snap during conversation. Additionally, Hoist’s right-hand nozzle is a really tight fit into the underside of the hand (perhaps due to the chrome) and I’m really frightened it’ll snap on the way in or out. Trailcutter’s nozzle is much better constructed, as it pops into the 5mm port on the forearm.
To be fair, I’m not too bothered about the hand replacements. It seems like a step backwards for the sake of G1 accuracy, and James Roberts has made me afraid of cutting off Transformers’ hands. Similarly, I wasn’t interested in the Reprolabel-style stickers included in the set for Trailcutter, though they are a marked improvement to Hoist.
The remaining piece of the set is a small personal handgun for Trailcutter, which works as an extension on his back and allows one to tilt his forcefield generator forward without also tilting the whole shield/gun assembly. I actually like it more than I thought I would, but then I love really tiny handguns, like Skids’ nudge gun.
Everything stows away in vehicle mode too. Trailcutter’s guns sit on top of his roof, and everything has a place to sit in Hoist’s new, improved truck bed. Despite the instructions, you have to remove the orange rig for transformation, specifically to get clearance for the head to fold out. And I kind of wish there was an option for the towline arm to sit in the middle rather than to one side, but eh.
All in all, I really like it just for Hoist’s iconic orange additions, and Trailcutter’s handgun was a nice surprise, and there’s some stickers in there too! Just be gentle with it!
