funny... I don't think applejack would be caught dead driving that thing.
I want a cutout Twilight Sparkle too D=
Oh the sarcasm, you gotta love it.
Still no right hat I guess?
Is that Twilight sitting there in the back of the truck? :)And I know these toys are made for small girls, but I personally think they could make them less pink. I didn't want toys when I was young because they were blue.
Did she lose another bet to Big Macintosh or something? Cos that's the only explanation I can come up with for that...travesty.
@Undead431Indeed. xDI wonder why they gave her a truck of all things... didn't Mrs. Faust say she didn't really want them to have very much technology? Oh well, not like Hasbro listened to them anyway, 'tis a shame.
what is this i don't even
Somepony should draw the stuff that appears as toys in the "real" ponyworld. Like Applejack trying to drive that ugly truck through Ponyville and making an accident. Or something.
Still not as bad as Rainbow Dash inside of the remote control airplane.......
@AnonymousYou must be kidding.
I foresee Rarity buying this for her in S2. She promptly gives it to Big Macintosh.
I like how the toys are made by people who obviously watch the show.

First scooters and now trucks? Please, please, please don't let any of these things show up in season 2. Dear Celestia!
"Hey, Applejack, since when do you drive a truck with a cutout of me in the back?"--"Well, you see Twilight, it's not because I'm hidin' anyone or anythin', 'specially not what you might call one'a them giant space robots... aw, tarnation, it's one of them giant space robots again, I better"(TRANSFORMER NOISES)"...wow, that looks painful."--"'WILITE. IF AH SURVIVE THIS... KILL ME."(ROBOT FIGHT)
@AnonymousApplebots wage their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Detrixicons.
"Hey Faust we're giving you full creative authority over the show, but there's a catch . . .""What?""We have full creative authority over the toys."
I went to the store a few hours ago on a quest for Tube Ponies.I found a tube-pony-sized Scootaloo that looked very G4 with a malt shoppe playset.Apparently, her future is neither to fly nor to scoot. It's to run a dinner for tiny ponies.
This toy gives to the meme "truck of fail" whole new meaning.
@AnonymousHa, I agree. Someone needs to make some comics like this during the summer. Should be good for a laugh or two.
What sucks is that if they really wanted to, Hasbro could force Lauren to shoehorn this monstrosity into the show.Actually, now that I think about it, hearing how Applejack managed to invent the internal combustion engine and getting an explanation on why she painted the truck pink could make for an interesting, if very wtf-worthy, episode!
Terrible, these toys are terrible D:>
It's clearly the truck she bought with all the money she raked in at the Gala- ohhhh, wait. No.
Next up rarity's Pimp mobile with real bouncing action!
@Anonymousi want to hate that idea, but i can'tit's too funny
Dat sarcasm!lol, since when has hasbro had a clue? Maybe they will learn with time...nah. gotta stop kidding myself like that.
Applejack isn't the type to have complicated, or pink farm equipment.But I could see Twilight conjuring it up like the carriage from the Gala to give it to Applejack. But what powers it? Magic? They have a Train, but it is pulled by Ponies, it doesn't seem they can grasp the idea of devices that aren't pulled by Ponies. Unless the Train broke down, then pulled by Ponies to it's destination. So if the Train actually worked, I would have no problem with the Truck in the show.So far the only vehicle set I like is Twilight's Balloon; I hope they make Pinkie Pie's Helicopter.
There are some things things that can only be properly operated with opposable thumbs.A truck is one of them.
It's powered by an indentured Scootaloo after her diner goes out of business and she falls into heavy debt, because tiny, penniless fillies and colts don't make for good repeat customers.
I've been seeing a lot of 3.5 on clearance in my local wally worlds and tru. Finally, I think hasbro might be willing to go all out on G4 stuff
I for one find joy applejack's truck. This just means, we're one step closer till we get Transformers mixed with MLP.
@ThelSearch for Pinkie Pie's race car.
Waiting for Hasbro to come out with Sky Missile Strike Rainbow Dash figures.
@SarahIt's the same logic that gives the Flash a motorcycle and Superman and Spiderman a sportscar.Though to be fair Spidey did have a dunebuggy in the comics and the JLU tv Flash did have a pimped out van for no other reason than he thought it was cool idea at the time.Here's hoping for a fighter jet for Rainbow Dash.
so how is this thing powered? considering the show had a train but was pulled by a team of ponies
that truck is horrible and to make it worse I STILL dont see a hat for AJ.
>Buy applejack >Buy Tonka truck with same scale>Epic win
Hasbro's marketing department is as stupid as rocks. How about actually WATCHING the show? This ignorance is technically costing them sales as the smart little girls go, "WTF is this shit?" when they see a pink, frilly truck.
"What in tarnation is that?!" -- "I got it for us to carry apples in! Isn't it cute?!" -- "Applebloom, what'd I tell ya about makin' purchases without your big sister around?" -- "WHEE!"
Oh, god I can just see this conversation.Twilight Sparkle: Hey Apple Jack!... Is that a cutout of me?Apple Jack: Um, yea. It's just for ad of a new product.Twilight Sparkle: Ooo! It even talks. *touches it*Apple Jack: Twilight NO!Cut-out Twilight: Oh Apple Jack, you're doing a great job! You're so awesome Apple Jack! You're so strong, Apple Jack! Oh, hold me Apple Jack!Twilight Sparkle: *just stares at Apple Jack*Apple Jack: ... I git lonely sometimes.
Clearly, this is Pinkie's doing. Who else can build a truck? A pink truck?
What the hell? Bwah hah hah hah! XD
With today's weak economy a lot of consumers are looking for ways to save some money online. Indeed there are various places where you can save money on items that you want by shopping online.
I just realized why they don't give Applejack her hat. Its too "boyish". That's right. A show that is famous for embracing both genders will only produce cheep crap covered in pink because every little girl out there can't handle any other color. Thank you, Hasbro, for embracing stereotypes.Thank Celestia for Lauren Faust. Without her, all the ponies would be pink and would run around giggling every episode, and we wouldn't have the show or community we know and love today.Seriously, sometimes Hasbro is so ridiculous its painful. Eh, whatever sells, right? :|
No, whatever doesn't sells.Pink whatever sells.Buy your pink whatever in your nearest Hasbro(tm) installment!Also with your pink whatever (in a pink box) buy your pink pony with pink food! with just a 10% augment, you can get your (nearly) FREE pink manure!Stay pink for more pink stuff by Hasbro(tm)!PS: We own your soul.
People who watch the show should either work for Hasbro or at-least submit pictures/drawing of better merchandise to Hasbro.
Well,I think this truck is going to be...*puts glasses on*a TRUCKLOAD OF FUN
This is hilarious! (I got here from DeviantArt and a future EqD post.
