HASBRO, Y U NO DEFEND DERPY by Aquarior HASBRO, Y U NO DEFEND DERPY by Aquarior
2012-03-07

ლ(ಠ益ಠლ) Created with the Memegenerator :clap:


I actually expected this to exist already. But strangely, I could not find this particular Y U NO on deviantArt, so I created it. Even stranger, I cannot find my "Real Steel" one via the search either. DeviantArt search, Y U NO show me correct results?!

I wrote two long articles about "Derpygate" here and here. In short, I think Hasbro should have stood up for Derpy. There are good reasons to include her in the series and even give her a significant role. Instead, they abandoned Derpy and her fans by dropping her in the moment where siding with her proved unpopular towards a mere handful of people. Someponies really need more lessons in friendship :(

While I am disappointed about the measures taken, I still enjoy the show :nod: I believe that some day characters like Derpy will be accepted and cherished instead of being "fixed" :hug: I just wished that series would have been "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"...


Last five memes:

Why did you put "Mentally retarded" in caps? I looked at the recent posts, and you're just trying to correct everybody. You see, my definition of derp is when you accidentally mess up, but you're okay with it and so is everybody else. In fact, when you can all even laugh about it just then, when it happens. Derp is more of an action than a disorder, so please, take it from the playful side, where even the "derpy" people see it.

I don't really know about Derpy.... I liked her, thought she was quite cute, but I always thought she was a boy, she LOOKS kinda boy-ish, that is why the voice actress gave her a more husky voice apparently, but people said she was making Derpy retarded.

Anyways, love the expression on this, LOL.

Whoa, interesting turn! :wow: This is the first time I hear of Taobao ^^; I have to admit that I am not a fan of most Pony toys I have seen so far. These are the ones closest to my taste. Brushable manes and Baby faces just do not appeal to me here :shrug:

The price seems reasonable. The 30 something are Yuan, contrary to what Google Translate says. In US Dollars it is only a few bucks. However, the shipping fees make it horribly expensive again unless one buys them in huge bulks.

So this is not a counterfeit, but an official Pony merchandise? To be honest, I do not know what would surprise me more. Presumably the former, because it can hardly get more bizarre than a Chinese factory producing illegal Derpy Merchandise :giggle: I mean, how would they even know that there is a market for it? :confused:


PS: I really liked the comment "Hasbro's asleep, make ponies!". Makes me imagine cowled men trading secret Pony miniatures in shady alleys :rofl: And thus began the age of the Pony Smugglers :D Be sure to leave a comment once your friend receives the package! :eager:

I see nothing wrong with changing her voice. She DID sound like she had brain damage or something before. I think everyone is just overreacting.

Which voice is better is a matter of taste, of course :D To say it with Copypasta from my Journal:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Derpy Hooves kind of has a weird voice...

Derpy was first voiced by Tabitha "Tabs" St. Germain, who also speaks Rarity, Luna/ Nightmare Moon, Granny Smith, Photo Finish, Mrs. Cake and her little foal Pound Cake. It turned out that she was unaware of Derpy being female and imagined a neighbor's clutzy son instead. Derpy was then spoken by someone else and given a more feminine voice. Many appreciated that change, but I liked Derpy Hooves' first take better. Somehow I found it more appropriate, especially after learning that it was an accident. As BronyMike commented on Youtube:
"Well it is indeed quite fitting that her appearance and voice are based entirely on two separate real-world derps." :giggle:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

But underping her eyes was unnecessary. Since Episodes are drawn and spoken long before they are aired, we will have to wait to see which role is granted to Derpy in the long term. I just hope she will keep her derped eyes. If that is the case, I am fine with her staying in the background :nod: Although I definitely would have appreciated a special Derpy Episode :eager:
