Did we doge a bullet?
>>36950149Considering how G5 is shaping I'd say your image would've been more preferable.
>>36950149They're all drag queens, so yes.
>>36950149Only literal babies got angry over this. TF and GI Joe reboot their casts all the time
>>36950149The fandom could only get away with wingboners because they’re not enormous, this means they would all but go extinct
>>36950149I kinda preferred most of the artist concepts from that over what G5 is shaping up to be.
>>36950149No, I would take this style and reboot a hundred times over what we're getting.
>>36950149>Gay colored wings>Exposed hoofs>one with dyke hair>one with long poof hair>one with braidswhat do you mean dodge you stupid faggot? this is exactly what we got.
you're all going about this the wrong way the only correct answer, is to demand that hasbro designs something appealing none of the g5 concepts were appealing, and the g5 final product is not appealing
>>36950347G5 makes me want to bite bullets about 10 times as much as the designs in the OP.
>>36950149This would have been better. At least they'd be in an alternate reality where they can't hurt us anymore.
>>36950149A reboot would've been preferable over a continuation, it's just a cheap tactic to try and keep the current audience's attention. Fuck the hacks at h*sbro, these fucks are completely incapable of coming up with something new.Actually this might be a good thing, if h*sbro kills the franchise again through excessive executive meddling, maybe 15 from now they'll give near full creative control to another creator for G7.
>>36950362OPs pic is just g4 fully dunked in deviantartism. and these trannie jaws arent much of an improvement. the only one that looks good is rara then flutt who has a lizzard mouth
>>36950149I'd say so. I love G4 as much as the next guy, but Twilight and her friends got a great ending and I'd rather leave that satisfying story closed to make room for new characters to learn about and enjoy.
>>36950149dont count yourself out just yet.Im about to restart the universeyou might have dodged the bullet,But i assure this isnt the worst.
>>36950149Never.If tomorrow Hasbro announced that G5 is cancelled and they're making a show about those characters, the very same people who think that your pic is so much better than G5 would suddenly and unanimously decide that they actually preferred the newly cancelled show after all.Hell, Hasbro could literally make a show about the Mane 6 where Twilight is not a Princess anymore, she lives in her treebrary again, and neither Shimmer nor Glimmer nor the School exist and everyone would find a reason to feel offended by it.No one wants to like anything anymore because liking things is s o y. Thus it doesn't matter what the original reason to be mad was, and it doesn't matter if whining about literally anything actually makes the legitimate complaints worthless. Whatever happens now will always wrong.
>>36950182This is MLP, not Spiderman, or Superman. MLP always changed main cast on new gen.And yes, G5 is still a reboot. It's soft-er reboot, but still reboot. Expectt rules of the universe to change.
it's over. MLP is dead.
>>36950754I bet you're the same guy who doesn't see anything past season 3 as cannon.
>>36950149Or walked into another bullet.
>>36950783Don't be ridiculous, how can there be anything past Season 3 when a third season doesn't even exist?
>>36950810without using Google, how many episodes are there in total if you stop after the final episode of season 3?
>>36950751The poster said they are “expanding the ponyverse”
>>36950182there is only one good GI JOEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iENz3Lv5uA4
>>36950149Desaturated Rarity. No thanks.
>>36950149The only thing I didn't agree with is 1. Twi not being a Unicorn anymore and 2. the designs are too complex for the shows budget to animate well and consistently. It looks more like a comic book than an actual animated show. I think I would have taken these over the designs we have now.
>>36950149>mudpony>element of magicwut
>>3695082544minute special that's coming in spring 2022 is called "MLP: Into the Ponyverse", and features ponies from G1,3,4,5.
>>36950149 There is no winning.
>>36950867All the Pony tribes have magic, unicorn spellcasting was just the most overt.
>>36950149Considering that the actual G5 is raping the corpse of G4 Equestria even more, no. A hard reboot with the same Mane 6 in a completely different universe would have been much better. At best we dodged a bullet to get run over by a fucking tank.
>>36950182This. Its always better to keep characters thats what people care about
>>36950164>more preferableread more books
>>36950149pinkie pie looks like a "juggalette"
Twilight looks hot with blue eyes
>>36950149We dodged a 45-70.Govt. bullet only to get hit with a .50BMG in the face.
>>36950353i disagree, i still think row 4 is good
>>36950149Yes. We dodged a bullet right into a landmine.
>>36951480Line 1 looks pretty good. Go with that
>>36950821that's easy, zero. there is no season 3.
>>36950726not even all of the g5 concepts look horrible and unappealingthe final g5 is hideous if they made something that actually looks good, we would like it we are not impossible to please season 1 satisfied everyone season 9 satified less than 10% of that amount
>>36951480your equestria will look like this
>>36950149At least they decided not to go with the "urban" Applejack idea
>>36950149We don't know for sure, I think they'll appear when they get desperate for views
>>36950726>Hell, Hasbro could literally make a show about the Mane 6 where Twilight is not a Princess anymore, she lives in her treebrary again, and neither Shimmer nor Glimmer nor the School exist and everyone would find a reason to feel offended by it.look at this Nostradamus wannabe being this fucking wrong
>>36950621>Twilight and her friends got a great endingimagine being this wrong
>>36950754not dead, just back in a coma like it was for 30 years or soin another 30, we will have good pony again
G5 won't have anywhere near the cultural impact of G4. It will boom for a bit due to novelty, then it's inherent shittieness will be too obvious and things will calm down again.
>>36952615Its basically impossible for the conditions of G4s popularity to be repeated. Literal perfect storm.
>>36952615I'm not so sure. G4 was shitty for over half of its run.
>>36952635agreed, I don't think the franchise will ever recoverwhat frightens me is hasbro might someday click on this and bring back G4 from its grave to zombie shamble around like the simpsons.>>36952638valid point, there will no doubt be stauch supporters still for G5 same as there are those for later G4. My hope is there won't be too many of them.
>>36952642Hasbro has to be aware it was lightning in a bottle l. Especially because they really failed to capitalize on the fad in general.
>>36952638>G4 was shitty for over half of its run.This desu. It's surreal to see people defending "G4" as a whole when the only reason anyone would pay attention to the abysmal latter seasons is that the show was popular already. How can anyone seriously pretend that it was okay when this popularity brought late-G4 fans, but it'd be terrible if it brought G5 fans too?Here's a hard pill to swallow: G5 being a completely average cartoon would still put it way above some of those seasons. At the very least, even the most mediocre cartoon possible is objectively better than the final seasons where the writers started actively boycotting the mane six out of spite after Hasbro didn't allow them to replace the main characters with their own ocs.I'll always defend the first seasons of FiM, and I'll always defend that, no matter how terrible the show eventually became, those seasons genuinely deserved all the love they got. But fuck it if we're gonna make this a generation war with completely artificial sides. I will never, ever pretend that "G4" was something worth remembering. Fuck "G4."
>>36952887I enjoy all of the show generally, just some fucked episodes. But every season has at least one episode that I enjoy that wouldn't exist if it ended sooner.
>>36952887Is there a term for early-G4 seasons only fans?
>>36950867>element of magic is literalhow many times do we have to teach you this old man?
>>36951480>the potato heads of row 6 are why they're shaped like they are in g5.
>>36950149Nope. Quite the opposite. We COULD have dodged a bullet with your picrelated.
>>36951824Actually never mind my last post, this guy gets it.
>>36952887I'm still not watching g5.>>36953039The word is "based"
>>36950164G5 dying for being woke is a good thing.
>>36950182>o-only l-literal b-babiesNext you'll speak badly of entitlement while demanding all companies enforece a gender quota.
>>36950164>>36950337>>36950450G5 was going to be a mess no matter what.It's better that they leave G4 alone as much as possible rather than reboot it into a shitty mess that ruins the legacy of our beloved girls even more than Haber ever did.
>>36953187Faustfags have standards and are attached to the genuine quality of early FiM created from the care of Faust, Renzetti, AKR, Larson, etc.They don't just eat up the shit that is forcefed to Hasdrones like you.
>>36954942I will never understand this "leave G4 alone" it already got absolutely raped at the end. I'd rather try to salvage what we can to someone else, rather than let it be totally ruined by Haber's shit stained fingers.
>>36956053Roll of the dice. Odds are pretty good we'd get someone even worse than Haber. You don't actually trust Hasbro to competently save G4 after everything we've seen, do you?
>>369560531. people who genuinely believe that if you pick someone at random you'll somehow find someone worse than an actual sociopath who despised the mane six2. people who unironically defend the later seasons
>>36954072>The word is "based"sounds accurate
>>36951480I would have genuinely liked rows 2 or 3 as art styles. Row 3 would need tweaking because some of the details would be too complex to animate, but I really like how the artist made the hooves, wings, and horns, respectively, the focal point of each species' magic. But out of all of them, row 2 would have been my best case scenario. They take a lot of elements from G4's signature style while adding some new things that make them feel distinct, and most importantly, the changes are miraculously visually appealing. I really like the horsey anatomy of the legs and hooves. They let Rainbow keep her long mane, so that's an instant plus in my book.
>>36951480>the glimmer columna kek everytime
>>36950149Yes. I want them to leave our girls alone. Better have some shitty show with new characters no one cares about that is easy to ignore than another shitty show that continues raping mane six like PL.
>>36956384Okay but she's still cute though
>>36950726but you're fucking wrongMLPFIM is responsible for all of this MLP 2.0 fucking sucks and would never result in all of this, which is owed to FIM and not the franchise
>>36954961not a Hasdrone, later seasons were shit. I just don't take every opportunity to fellate myself over my taste in cartoons, or have a schizo meltdown when people acknowledge canon, or otherwise fart up every thread I open
>>36950726Lmao, bitch you mad as hell that people be calling your taste shit
>>36957384Yeah, sure you don't.
>>36950149Those really do still look like complete ass. Why is making a good cartoon show apperantly so fucking hard?
>>36951480How does this stuff get leaked anyway?Athletic Dash in the middle is just ace
>>36951480I've always been of the opinion that damn near none of these look good.
>>36957419Post a good redesign.
>>36951480aside from RD row 5 isn't that badI love the Twilight on that row. Looks totally adorkable.
>>36957440*that is to say, row 5 of the redesigns.
>>36957440I agree, that RD is a baby faced munchkin with less edge than the original.
>>36957422Redesigns are by their nature usually ass. You should design characters around the art style, not the other way around.
>>36956112Transformers does it all the time. Transformers Prime was pretty trashy, but Cyberverse has been surprisingly good. It's a cycle. I'd rather have a chance of someone better getting the reigns. But honestly, I don't think we can get worse than what Haber did intentionally.
