4:57 AM
@SPArcheon Strange indeed...
 
 
2 hours later…
7:16 AM
Are mermaids fish? That could have massive ethical ramifications.
 
7:36 AM
@V2Blast for sake of clarity, the sushi restaurant is only see in EG, never in the pony world.
 
7:48 AM
Are mermaid ponies regular mermaids in EG? (Discuss :P)
 
the three diamond dogs from the original series...
(and before some ask - yes, the name is a David Bowie reference)
appear in one EG special
and they end up as human too.
Oddly, Spike becomes a dog.
It is never explained if specific races become human while others become animals.
I wouldn't exclude that the sea ponies just become humans like regular ponies do.
I even think that one official EG comic has an human Gilda in the background in on scene.
 
8:07 AM
@AndrasDeak No, they're clearly mammals, like dolphins.
 
Phew!
 
@SPArcheon that is odd yeah
considering dogs turn into humans why dragon turn into dog
 
@trogdor Talking dogs to be precise.
 
well yes
 
8:27 AM
@vicky_molokh-unsilenceMonica Platypus.
 
@SPArcheon Platypodes are clearly mammals too.
 
Yes, I was just trolling @Andras
 
8:52 AM
@vicky_molokh-unsilenceMonica "clearly" might be a stretch ;)
 
@AndrasDeak They feed offspring with milk. That's about as clear a criterion as it gets. It's not like it's some mammal whose milk glands are non-functional and rudimentary.
 
If you get close enough to milk one, sure. From afar you see beaks and eggs.
Oh, also venomous spurs? Also somewhat un-mammal-like.
 
TIL Seanan McGuire has the third biggest collection of My Little Pony in North America
 
@AncientSwordRage I guess that includes both nice and nightmare fuel merchandise so... not really THAT jealous.
 
@SPArcheon you mean uncanny? :P
 
9:01 AM
@AndrasDeak no, some are beyond uncanny and pure nightmare fuel.
These.... their right place is in a Chucky sequel.
 
@SPArcheon ehhh
Forky is more horrifying to me
 
9:34 AM
Officially licensed from Intek
must be a MLP Xenomorphs crossover product.
A Takara Tomy doll
Another Medusa-style plush.
Some official Twilight ones?
> And then, everyone left the room in horror.
 
The last few remind me of the Count from Sesame Street.
 
10:11 AM
@SPArcheon why, why would you do this
XD
 
What can I say, I often get blame for saying that many official MLP toys are objectively horrible even as a kid toy spared from any "collector/display item" purpose...
Even a kid toy deserve to be something better that Pyramid Head Fluttershy.
Or at least, sell the plush with a long sword that she can carry around if that is a Silent Hill crossover....
On second though, she is still yellow (although to be fair I am not sure she can still be called Fluttershy)... so maybe the triangular head is a slice of cheese.
 
10:31 AM
oof
 
@trogdor well- as a comparison I can get with the idea that the nylon stripes mane that I despise is actually good for kids that can brush it. So while I prefer a full plush like 4de ones, the kid will want to play with one of those brushable toys.
 
seems fair
 
I also get that it is useless to do a very accurate redemption of the characters for a toy that will be tossed around and get lot of play-damage.
But...
Can't they really do something better than the ones above?
Maybe the Chubby Twily is a pillow.. but what about the bald one just below?
but yep... that is Hasbro for you. Doesn't seem to have high standards.
since they continue to put this one in newer blind bags to keep reusing the generic pegasi mold...
despite having a correct version available
