      @Kiryu-Chan Why must RD be so awesome/adorable all the time? She’s just too much! :wub:

  3. Alright, the GoH toys are cool, but I’m not a fan of Twilight’s angry face, it looks really try hard, and really drives home that the toyline is desperately trying to make MLP appeal to boys. It sucks because RD, AJ, and Pinkie look fine, RD can get away with a tough girl smirk. Rage mode Twilight just looks ridiculous and sticks out. I might go for that other posable Twilight toy3C56ADC5-3A42-4353-BD6E-C02F3790D0FF.thumb.jpeg.29b778fb748a5eb2098cb15cea4d8838.jpeg

  6. Looking back at the 3rd party reveals in Smash, Snake and Cloud we’re probably the best surprises, but Ryu and Terry have my favorite trailers

      @Kiryu-Chan Banjo and Kazooie and Cloud were my favorite DLC characters!

  7. Here’s another tidbit about the leaks in regards to season 8, though it’s kind of a “no-shit” confirmation....and at the unfortunate risk of getting political 

    Spoiler

    Season 8’s Neighsay really was meant as a jab at Trump, with some of the emails jokingly refer to him as Trump before “correcting” themselves and refer to Neighsay again

      @Kiryu-Chan Politics and MLP should never be on the same screen!

      Eh, whatever. If you don’t like a political figure, you’ll live. I tolerated years of politicians I couldn’t stand, but I didn’t throw the absolute unglued tantrums I’ve observed in recent years.

      But that’s just a partially related tangent.

  9. In the early drafts of 28 Pranks Later, in another case of “who the fuck shit in the writers’ Coco Puffs?”

    Spoiler

    The Royal Sisters were supposed to be in it, and in on the prank. With Luna  in particular going after her at some point(I can’t remember if it was a dream sequence or not, which would probably be worse

  12. In the early version of Forever Filly

    Spoiler

    The episode was about Rarity and Sweetie Belle wanting to spend more time with each other, but the episode would have been more about Sweetie working at her boutique and finding her knack for fashion. Sassy Saddles would be more involved and the episode would have ended with her becoming a permanent employee 

    My thoughts on this are pretty weird. I honestly thought the final version was boring and this one sounds a lot better. But i’m also glad they changed it because i’d imagine they wanted it to be more personal 

  13. The early version of Hearth's Warming Tale, for the actual story itself

    Spoiler

    The episode was still about Starlight and the holidays, but for the Christmas Carol adaptation, before Starlight, the original Scrooge character was Discord, and Twilight would have been the Bob Crotchet character instead of Rainbow Dash(who would have instead been the Ghost of Jacob Marley). The rest was mostly the same except with Discord. And Tiny Tim would have actually showed up, played by Spike(Kinda glad they didn't include this in the final version, assuming they would have replaced Spike with Scootaloo, I don't think I could have handled that:sealed:

    They made a good call making Starlight be the Scrooge character, as it makes more sense narratively for both the story in the episode and the episode itself

      Well, he does kinda look like Ebenezer Scrooge. :pinkiehat:

       

  14. Season 3 actually had quite a few episodes planned for Rarity, not just Spike At Your Service

    Spoiler

    Speaking of which, the original version with Rarity was there. And yeah, most of it would be spent on her being jealous that Spike is helping AJ and constantly tries to get him to do stuff for her as well. The rest of the stuff with Spike and AJ are there, but instead of the mane 6 trying to help AJ, it's just Rarity being mean to him

    We really did get the best version of that episode

      Spoiler

      Having read the premise as well... it basically did just sound akin to a prototypical version of Dragon Dropped  (although we would've at least been spared from the obnoxious meme faces of the latter episode) - I concur that the episode we received, while clunky in multiple ways, was an improvement (personally, I've never fully disliked SaYS in itself - it's a heavily flawed episode (particularly regarding Spike's characterization), yet the M6 themselves are well-characterized and resultantly receive some memorable comedic moments (Dash's fanfiction and the reactions to the rock tower in particular are golden)). As for the writers' preference towards Rarity, I suspect that their more stringent quality control towards her episodes (at least within the context of the show's initial crew) stemmed from her relatively subversive nature for a show of FiM's demographic in the early 2010s - prior to FiM, the majority of 'feminine' fashionista characters within girls' media tended to be shallow, unlikable archetypes, whereas Rarity is presented in a far stronger, more dignified and well-rounded way (at least once the crew finally determined how to use her character effectively circa Suited for Success) and I believe the crew themselves may have recognized (and acknowledged via their more 'regulated' treatment of her character premise-wise) this bucking of convention as a result. 

      Speaking of which, you may have also uncovered Merriwether William's dropped outline for a musical episode involving Twilight temporarily assuming Mayor Mare's place (the leaks actually indicate multiple episodes (including one planned for season 6 where, bizarrely, she rigged a general election to enable Discord to become the mayor of Ponyville, which ultimately leads him to plunge Equestria into eternal darkness... because someone asked for it) were planned for MM, all of which were canned early in production), with its rejection presumably explaining why she was reassigned to write SaYS's script - while the outline itself does contain some overly cheesy/obvious elements, it arguably would have enabled S3 to more effectively build towards placing Twilight in a permanent leadership capacity (and highlights the 'leadership qualities' Celestia claims her to have developed in MMC).

      I wish Rarity had an episode in Season 3. I wonder why she didn't. :confused:

      @PiratePony RD had a couple of missteps between S4-5, but a lot of them were mostly misguided. McCarthy and co. were pretty careful with her(for example, in the original Flight To the Finish, RD was actually the source of Scootaloo's misfortune rather than Diamond Tiara and Silver Spoon, but they changed it because they thought she was too mean). It wasn't until S6 onwards when the show changed leadership where it becomes complete bullshit. Even if you dislike episodes like Rainbow Falls or Tanks for the Memories, at the very least you can claim they were misguided but meant well, as opposed to episodes like Newbie Dash, 28 Pranks Later, Non Compete Clause, or 246 Great, which blatantly hated her

      @Them's Seeing Ponies

      Spoiler

      In regards to the Rarity thing, I could actually buy that for the first half of the show. The second half though just felt like Haber was playing favorites. He regularly considered Rarity his favorite and it really shows in both his writing and story editing(notably how he handled a good chunk of her focus episodes)

      And yeah, I read that synopsis with Mayor Mare, it sounded really interesting and I honestly wish it could have happened, given it could have given her more characterization as well as be an early start for Twilight becoming a leader. I guess they could never get it to work. The one with Discord sounded awful though so I'm glad that one never happened

       

      @Sparklefan1234

      Spoiler

      I'm guessing they were never able to get one working right, she was the only one to have multiple ideas for one while the others had just one set in stone(Apple Family Reunion and Wonderbolts Academy being good examples). Heck, before Sleepless In Ponyville, the Luna dreamwalking episode was originally planned for Rarity and Luna, and there was one for The Crystal Empire starring Twilight and Rarity

      It's not Ken though, he's already in the game. It's the two Mii costumes, notably the costumes they're wearing

  15. I kinda want to get the Siege Springer toy, but MMC Saltus really spoiled me

  16. A rejected episode for S4

    Spoiler

    Season 4 really wanted to use Rainbow Falls a lot. Rainbow Falls was supposed to be the source of rainbows in Cloudsdale and there's a crystal that makes it produce the colors, and it's running out and a new crystal is available in the Crystal Empire. There's a special way to handle the crystal, but Rainbow/Twilight(either or, the premise and outline features one or the other) get excited and simply skim everything. Of course this goes wrong and de-rainbows their friends and makes them extreme versions of themselves. And Twilight/Rainbow would have had to find a way to make everything right

    This sounds like it could have been fun, but there were some weird things happening that would need to be reworked

    1. Them's Seeing Ponies

      Them's Seeing Ponies

      Spoiler

      This definitely sounds akin to an interesting premise, particularly through its expansion of Rainbow Falls itself beyond an aesthetically pleasing backdrop for several lower-quality episodes and the concept of the 'extreme' M6 (which I guess could be some form of commentary on flanderization, although I somehow suspect that the writers were more concerned with the similarities to other 'corrupted/reworked M6' plotlines (such as Return of Harmony or MMC), although somehow the conceit of Twilight (in the outline version, I recall) screwing this kind of task up seems kind of contrived given the 'mentor' characterization they attempted to push throughout the season otherwise. 

      On a related note, season 4 appears to mark an interesting divergence in the way the show's episodes were composed if the leaks are anything to reference - note that the premises and outlines in S1 and S2 were written by Faust and Renzetti, with Meghan assuming control of this in S3, yet every season following this appears to feature the premise/outlines for (almost) every episode written by its respective writer (or another writer, hence AKR's credit on the outline of the musical version of Bats!) as opposed to a single showrunner(s). Regardless of one's opinion on the later seasons, I suspect this was a contributory factor in their less cohesive/consistent tone and characterization (particularly from S6 onwards). Similarly, the production for S4 in general seems weirdly uneven, with a number of premises in S5's earlier half seemingly formulated approximately a year prior to actual production (check the 'Episodic Brainstorm' folder in the S4 file, which contains a number of S5 episode premises and the entire (noticeably different, particularly in regards to most of act 1, Starlight being referred to as 'Aurora Glimmer' and lack of Larson-esque comedic touches) first draft of part 1 of The Cutie Map ), which may explain the elongated hiatus between S4 and S5 as a result of either Meghan attempting to greenlight the MLP Movie (in its early form at least) or the crew anticipating some form of cancellation (a less likely possibility).

      Twilight Sparkle & Rainbow Dash have great chemistry so, I would've been all for this. 

       

  17. One of the rejected scripts for S6 dealing with Fluttershy's family

    Spoiler

    Before Zephyr, the episode would have been dedicated to Fluttershy's whole family. For some reason RD never met them, and this would be the first time. They'd consist of her parents, and older brother(not zephyr), a little sister, and her grandpa. They all were pushovers, it's like they're all caricatures of Fluttershy's biggest flaws. They'd constantly try to have everything available so no one would be left out or they'd have all options available, including vacation tickets, to the point where they'd actually be tight on money to afford anything

    Yeah, there's no hyperbole when I say, we lucked out with Zephyr

    I can see why this was rejected

      Definitely understand why that was rejected. Which would you pick? One character you're not supposed to like but find funny, or multiple characters you're supposed to like getting screwed over by jerks? :yeahno:

    3. ShadOBabe

      ShadOBabe

      I like Zephyr way more than this. Fluttershy‘s already my least favorite of the Mane Six, but at least in Flutter Brutter she was able to flex her more assertive side (Zeph is her baby brother after all, she has no reason to fear or be shy around him).

      A whole house of pre-character development Fluttershy’s? No thanks.
