You don't have to be from /pol/ (or an actual racist) to find blacks unattractive.

I feel absolutely no arousal from black skin, at least of the substantially dark kind. As bad as it sounds, I actually get the same feeling of disgust as if I'm looking at an animal rather than a human and my dick just goes back to napping. Can't blame your primal mating instincts for what you don't or can't like.

Hasbro does not give a shit about us: not. a. shit. We're very tiny and we don't buy shit for merchandise-- the failure of both the guardians of harmony series and the movie is proof of this.
As such, hasbro doesn't care about bronies anymore-- look at how they've been cutting out any and all references to adult fans from their pitch material as of late, since the adult fandom is basically dissolved and non-commercially viable now.


Whatever bronies talk about or want for the show is irrellevent and does not affect their thinking anymore-- only the little girls matter.

So an episode from over TWO YEARS ago, that was started in production probably 3 years ago.
Present day, not 3 years ago. Back when the fandom wasn't dead, hasbro had a mild interest in us-- that's not now, like I said in my original post.
>>
>>32233980
Really makes you wonder why they apparently aren't starting from scratch, if this is meant for the next generation
>>
>>32234007
They're not starting from scratch because the young girls audience is incredibly strong and still growing financially. Just because the brony fandom doesn't make money and is on the way out doesn't mean the little girls are feeling the same way.


As such, they want to keep g5 just like G4 because G4 and Equestria girls (which is G5 in everything but name, since its just a reboot of G4 in a human world) are selling with little girls and you can still sell toys to them with a new gen that's just like the previous one.
>>
>>32234018
I meant next generation of girls, who wouldn't care about Twilight and friends

Because McCarthy is a creatively bankrupt hack who'd rather leech off the stuff that already works than come up with something new and original.
Look at FiM for example. It's been following the exact same formula for 7 years and it's clear that nothing's going to change even though the poor thing has been milked to death by now and is practically on its deathbed.
>>
I bet anyone 100 to 1 odds they've already scrapped the "Lots of adventure and more male characters" idea from the hacked stuff and are retooling it into more traditional slice of life and girl centric stuff.
Seeing as how the attempts to sell toys to little boys flopped as well as the action figure toyline, there's no way hasbro would go forward with that, its probably back to a "normal" approach.
>>
>>32233980
> We're very tiny and we don't buy shit for merchandise
> failed movie

thought the movie got a decent amount of money. also it basically just has to cut even to be worth as a giant toy advertisement thus earning money theoretically.

also surprising amount of fans buy merch. remember they release "adult only - this is not a toy" ponies for a while now, and done the new trixie rocket statue very recently so that seems to be bullshit.
>>
>>32234095
>for a while now,
Key word here is that's past tense-- they were selling toys aimed at adults during the height of the fandom, and they tried to start selling fan series toys--- which have now been almost completely axed.

The Trixie Starlight rocket is aimed more at young kid fans than the previous fan series, its more a whimsical "normal" toy compared to ones that were clearly aimed at the adults like the celestia or NMM one.
>>
>>32234095
>thought the movie got a decent amount of money. also it basically just has to cut even to be worth as a giant toy advertisement thus earning money theoretically.
In other words, they didn't need a movie to keep doing what they were already doing
>>
>>32233912
Wait, I thought that was a joke.
>>
>>32234112
except the movie earns exposure and profit by existing.

more monies.

>>32234099
do we have any actual proof that the adult toys didn't sell well? they didn't seem to print many so they can't have lost too much with loss limiting that way.

Good thing people are interested in money made which is why they invested in the first place. hasbro aren't new, their presentations leaked show they know how to put a good spin and focus on the good.
>>
>>32234150

Whatever tricks Lionsgate into burning their own money

the movie made money; its total expenses was 50 million and it made slightly over 60 million.
it wasn't a lot, but it didn't go in the hole and still worked as an advertising feature.

The trademark for everything from G1 & G2 having to be camped on makes them very leery of just doing that.
Hell why do you think we got the fucking names from G3 all over the fucking place, from the early main cast (only Twilight and Applebloom are semi-original), right down to fucking one time fillies (Toola Fucking Roola).
It's like you faggots really don't remember the whole "Rainbow Dash Always Dresses in Style" Meme.
Then again 99% of the faggots giving a shit are probably folks who are recent jump-ons or fans of the fandom.
>>
>>32233980
I wanted to buy guardian stuff. They looked really cool on pictures. But when you look closely you can see they cheep on them so hard it's insulting.
The idea was cool, but they didn't give enough rice to workers so they died in mid assembly/painting.

>>32234302
It can't be that hard to make it like every new gen was: an all new take with things taken from previous incarnations. It's 30 year old brand; why have it be stuck on a recent version no one would care about if not for a dead meme

Half of her character is in that damn cloak.
You hardly ever saw her full face and it helped characterise her as a stand-offish person in addition to the raven motif.

The only ones with a precedent in all generations is AJ and Spike (those two were saved from the trademark grab somehow) so I'll break it down since I've been around since G1.
AJ: Silly airhead (G1), Literal Background Pony (Tales and G3),and current Farm Pony, building off her G3 toy's back card of liking to eat fruit.
Spike: Dumb Kid, Toy, Wise old mentor to Rarity, Combination of G1 and G3.

Then you have the G3-G4 main pones (not putting Cheerilee or Toola Roola in here.
Pinkie Pie (no real change aside from more cartoony in G4), Rarity (Downgraded from a spoiled brat princess to a diva), Rainbow Dash (Dollar Store Rarity to Dash), Sweetie Belle (made into a kid, no real change) and Scootaloo (see Sweetie).
All in all the only major change is Rainbow Dash in the G3-G4 pones, and AJ and Spike changed pretty much every generation, unless we go with AJ's relegation to the background between G1 and 4 as a no change.
Basically if they change AJ and Spike and only do a little work on the rest, they're keeping with tradition.

>>32233974
That's the only black person the left recognizes as a "proper" black person nowadays.

Any blacks attempting to criticize inner city mentality for how to be black are catagorized as "self hating" or whatnot, as if its a cultural/genetic trait to be like that if you're black.

Blackberry Apple Pie, and G5 will make AJ and Pinkie Pie canon sisters

I think you should be more upset that she looks like a dude.

>>32232759
Someone in a different thread about this topic, trying to speculate reasons why they are doing this, said something about G5 being more adventury and her farming lifestyle not being easy to slot into that.

Which of course is the stupidest thing in the world considering "Simple Farm Boy Goes Off On Adventure" is older then fucking dirt, the biggest example in modern pop culture being Luck fucking Skywalker.

Literally can fix AJ by making her the main focus character like Twilight is in G4. Her being the most "normal" is perfect for Main Hero.

Make her a little tiny bit younger, working on the farm with her big farm family when suddenly Some Bullshit happens and oh no! All sorts of stuff is broken thanks to Lord Bad Guys Personal Bitch decided to come around and ruin some random peoples day and also now Pa is sick with some curse or some shit. And Grandmaw takes sad and angry little AJ aside and all "here is your great grandpappy's magic sword or ring, except ponies can't really use those so uh Magic Hat. Go Forth and Adventure." And AJ all "yee haw" but then realizes she has no idea where to go to kick the bad guys dick in. So she asks her friends Background, Extra, and NPC and they are all like "we know jack shit, but there's this Nerd Over yonder here in South Earthpony Planet that might know shit because she's a nerd and maybe a witch?" And So AJ fucks off to find this Nerd and There's Our New Earth Pony Twilight. 'So I heard your the Nerd and/or witch who can help me." And NuTwi is all "Lol I'm a scientist, not a witch. Cover your ears for a second while I say this spell or your soul might fall out and I havn't studied the long term effects of that."

And they they portal off to The Cloud Level. They see Fast and Wacky and are all "well your character designs stick out compared to the backgroundians so I guess your the new party members?" Ditto for Unicornia. And then ect you have all read a fantasy novel TL:DR Just make AJ the Frodo or something
>>
>>32233270
People are evolutionarily attracted to similar genes to their own.
>>
>>32238850
Those characters LEFT the farm behind forever though.

AJ is about her farm, and being loyal to her farm and family, not leaving it-- this was even the point of her Cutie mark epiphany, that she wasn't happy being somewhere else.


Luke's home was burnt to the ground and he never returned, Clark kent left his farm forever to become a reporter in the city, ect.
In order for AJ to do the same thing she'd have to basically do a 180 from what her cutie mark episode had her realize as her destiny.
