Great news in the Transformers and MLP department!

Journal Entry: Fri Jul 13, 2012, 12:58 PM
First of all, I've taken to buying Kreo Transformers lately.  So far I have the big Bumblebee and Optimus and Megatron.  Gonna try to get more cuz the big ones are on clearance at my Wal-Mart.  :D

And speaking of which, they are apparently making Transformers Kreon minifigures that CAN ACTUALLY TRANSFORM!!!  :wow:  They have pieces that allow them to do it and not all are that great but they are little so having a very realistic and detailed alt mode isn't to be expected but they're still awesome and adorable!  They've got some memorable characters coming like Galvatron, Bludgeon, Springer, Airachnid, Scorponok, Waspinator, and even more!  And better than that, some of them can COMBINE!!!  Yes, they have Devastator, Superion, Predicus, and Buticus!  I'm so pumped for these, but there's just one little problem............they're blind-bagged...  :(  And of course there's the new big sets of Kreos that we've seen a few months ago.  Here's the article on TFW that will show you:  www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n…

There's also the new Masterpiece Optimus Prime which I totally want to get! www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n…

The Bot Shots which is mainly stuff we've already seen, but some new awesome things like Shockwave and Ironhide and Starscream who both have their own trailer launchers! www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n…

The Fall of Cybertron line with Sideswipe and Kickback and voyagers like Soundwave/Soundblaster: www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n… and also a Blaster repaint of Soundwave and voyager Grimlock!  www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n…

Looks like Kup and Rumble have made it into the TFP line! www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n…

Oh, and the best Transformers toy-related news we've gotten in ages!  THE FIRST EDITION TF PRIME TOYS ARE COMING BACK!!! www.tfw2005.com/transformers-n… :iconfinallyplz:

And in Pony news, there's this video of stuff: www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07… , a big poster thing: www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07… which has Scootaloo flying and some fan favorites on it like Chrysalis, Vinyl, Trixie, and Derpy!  More proof that Hasbro likes how we fans think!

But wait, there's more!  MLP:FiM is getting a comic series! www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07… deviant artist, Andy Price andypriceart.deviantart.com/ is working on it and it looks awesome!!  :excited:

And some epic news about Season 3!  Spike and Twilight are singing a song apparently (yus, we finally get to hear Spike sing!), Rarity and OCTAVIA are going to sing a song together (OMG OCTAVIA IS NOW CANON!), Trixie will return (was there ever any doubt?) and...........Fluttershy turns into a dragon?  Seems legit!  :D

Also, I know they're calling him Time Turner in the card game, but apparently Hasbro has been able to officially call him Doctor Hooves! www.equestriadaily.com/2012/07… It's obvious they couldn't say "Whooves" with a W cuz that would be too similar to Dr. Who so maybe they went the safe route and said "Hooves" to avoid a copyright notice from BBC.  Also seems legit!  :D

And last but not least, the Adventure Ponies game shown in that one Hub commercial is now an officially made game to play on their website! www.hubworld.com/my-little-pon… Go there and the code to get in is HUBMLP8BIT and you only need to do it once and it autosaves for you!  It's hilarious fun if you like retro side-scrollers like myself!  :nod:

So yeah, that's all really.  As for me, everything is going well.  I am kinda busy though, I have a summer online class I'm taking which I'm really behind in so I may not be on DA as much as I used to.  But I'll upload some art for you guys frequently still.  Copperponies, customs, more chapters of Cutie and the Beasts.......perhaps more teasers for Chaos Rising?  I also was going to see if maybe I can go to Trotcon next weekend but I can't, sorry.  :(  Are any of you guys going to Trotcon though?

Btw, let me know if any of those links are broken and I'll see what I can do...

How do you think that Fluttershy turns herself into a dragon?

Can't hasbro just work (more) with Lego and not some rip-offs like Kreo or megablocks.

They already tried, Lego doesn't seem to want to work with them. Or at least it seems that way. Remember when someone sent the idea of MLP Legos to them and they turned it down cuz they don't feel they should be using a Hasbro product? I think the two companies are too competitive so Hasbro took their own route. Plus, remember, on every Kreo box it has a sign with a Legoish brick which says "Works with LEADING brands", therefore they are promoting Lego and all the other block-building companies.

1. Because that is a fan made object, remember how last time hasbro is forced to sue a plushie maker?
2. "works with leading brands" is a common lie made by tons of companies.

Well fans can have an impact sometimes, look at what the bronies have done with some of the BG characters from MLPFIM!!

Well this time it isnt' because it really DOES work with Lego pieces. I would know, I have mixed them!

yes, but when its starts to interfere with MONEY, they would automatically react.

Tried, works, but they look ugly (and smells).

I meant that if the fans are doing anything that are going to take their profits/cause copyright issues they would deal with the problem with prejudice

Kreos smells.

We aren't talking about that kind if instance, we're talking about when fans help give an idea to the company like with lego.cuusoo.com.

Like literally? That must be a problem with the ones in your country cuz here they have no odor at all!
