aspiegurl: Update on TheBluePuffball. He simply had that other user's content and confessed he was an impersonator. Jul 24, 2021 19:31:13 GMT
OJ: Are people here following the He-Man scenario online? It looks like people don't like it. If it is bad then Mattel have screwed up.... again. I do intedn to watch the show at some point. Jul 28, 2021 12:55:51 GMT
Sleeper Agent: Scenario? Do you mean the Kevin Smith continuation? Heard the lack of He-Man himself has annoyed some fans but haven't seen it yet as I'm not on Netflix. Does look worth a watch though. Jul 29, 2021 10:21:10 GMT
OJ: Yes that He-Man cartoon. Alot of people don't seem to like it. I also intend to watch it. Jul 29, 2021 10:25:23 GMT
Armada Starscream: Anyone who thinks that Marion was designed to be the Thomas version of Scuttlebutt Pete? The two are remarkably similar: a digger/dredger that keeps talking on, and who the engines/tugs aren't fond of working with. It seems too closely to be a coincidence Jul 30, 2021 1:02:41 GMT *
Ryan: I'd argue that save for Sam, there was no-one working on the show at the time who'd have been familiar with Tugs to make the connection and make it happen. It's highly unlikely Jul 30, 2021 14:08:00 GMT
TheGreenBeetle: Makes me wonder how Big Mickey came to life in the world of Thomas LOL Jul 30, 2021 19:42:01 GMT
TheGreenBeetle: Aside from previous background cameos from the Model Series Jul 30, 2021 19:46:07 GMT
