815 She Totally Does.

Over time Nina is going to wear away at Carol’s resolve, like water over rocks.  Relentless.

The other day at the store I broke down and got a Star Wars Transformer crossover toy.  I never bought any of the big ones because they look dumb as fuck, but they have smaller ones now, and the Obi Wan didn’t look as terrible as they usually do.   He also comes with 2 lightsabres, which is cool.

As you can see, He’s about as big as other Transformers in his price range, but taller than Applejack.  He’s much lighter than her though.  When he’s in vehicle mode he looks like Obi Wan’s ship from the second and third prequels, and his lightsabres  store, unfortunately loosely, in the laser bays.

Hasbro missed a big opportunity for this toy though.  In robot mode he has to hold his weapons or set them aside because there’s no place to stow them.  I noticed that the thruster ports on his back were about the same diameter as the lightsabres though.  After a few moments with a drill Robo Obi could store his twin “blades”  on his back in a very cool, samuraiesque, way.

I very rarely take tools to my stuff, but this was too good to pass up.


(A) Nina’s got mindgames downpat.
(B) Why in the gods’ funky green earth did you buy such an obvious “no way in hell” item?
(C) Why is Nina saying “T” instead of Thomas? Is it due to speech bubble size restraints?
(D) Why in the CORE of the gods’ funky green earth do you have what appears to be a my little pony toy? >.>

Someone needs an intervention, ourdo.

A) Likely.
B) Obi Wan is my favorite Star Wars guy.
C) She calls Thomas T several times throughout the comic. (In reality T was one of my nicknames when I worked retail. This is a nod to that.)
D) I like My Little Ponies.

I actually don’t recall her calling him “T” in the comic at all… |:/ I might have to go back and start re-reading them. Memory has never been my strongsuit.

Lauren Faust rocks hard. Also she has an awesome name. Both Lauren, which is the two syllables that mean awesome, and Faust, because Italian diabolists are fairly badass in and of themselves. That is all that ever needs to be said regarding My Little Pony and its ineffable rock-ism-ishness.



Also Wide eyed innocent looking Carol is just wrong. And frightening. A frightening level of wrong. I fear I may have been frightened by the frightening level of wrong frighteningly fraught by the image in panel three. Fright!

I now want to see a picture of Obi-Wan riding Appeljack into battle.

Speaking of Transformers though, have you seen the new Kre-o toys? If so, what’re your opinions?

I have to wonder how Nina will feel when she finds out how far things have already progressed and that Carol has been holding out.

Also, nice touch on Carol’s ears turning red with embarrassment.

robo obi looks like chuck norris to me, that observation aside. i agree the crossover toys look pretty shit most of the time, i like the more recent movie like toys, though the dark of the moon toys havent been as good, these mech whatever the fuck toys with a lot of moving parts are just crappy as hell, like something they came up with in the 90’s. now the classics line is pure fuckin gold as far as i am concerened, the cup and hotrod toys are spot on, though i wish they had kept cup’s more swoopy look, his head sculpt is perfect

Yeah, the smaller versions have interested me as well. Never bought a single crossover yet, but tiny figures always pique my interest. Haven’t bought one yet because I’m not a big fan of any of the characters yet. Might do one if they make a Trooper of some kind.

…and now I’m reminded once again that Applejack needs a hat.

Everytime you tell us more about yourself or your toys, you end up with more cool points… back-slung lightsaber (Zero-style, you understand~), and a Brony to boot.

Awesome comic, awesome guy… hells yeah!

I’m tryin’ to remember if I was already into ponies at this point in time… (looks at date…) Yea, I was pretty into it already.

Has anyone else noticed how INCREDIBLY red Carol’s ears got in that last panel? For some people, it’s a sure sign of embarrassment, or lying. In this case, lying.
