What offends me most is there is no OG Sharptooth Plushie! RAWR!

Now that you mention it, it is weird that they never made any sharpteeth, original sharptooth or otherwise. :thudstonk When I was little, I was stuck chasing my plush Gang of Five with generic T. rex toys...sigh.

Its a Sharpspiracy! I think the plushie makers are anti-sharpteeth! #sharpteethlivesmatter

Well, Pizza Hut made a Sharptooth hand puppet. It's quite big.

True. But no plushies.  :evilsmile

General Land Before Time / Contact Universal for LBTXV
« on: Today at 04:30:27 PM »
I had an idea that we fans could contact Universal to let them know we want them to make LBTXV, to show them how many of us there are and that there is a devout fanbase.

Here is a link to contact Universal:

https://www.universalstudios.com/contact

As a reminder be respectful and kind, we want to help LBTXV get made not vent frustations.

I think we will get LBTXV, but it depends greatly on us fans. Universal needs to know our devotio, and have a pitch for non-fans, mainly kids who love dinosaurs. I wish there was a means to write Universal Execs and respectfully arguing the merits.

Yep, yep, yep--I would jump at that opportunity! :Mo

I say we try, send a Ruby reasoned message.  :thinking

The question is, would Rhett have been with her?   :rhett_shocked

Rhett didn't exist until four years later. :SmugSpike Nice try baiting people, though!

But how do we know if Rhett wasn’t with Ali four years earlier? ;)

Not baiting, just curious if Ali did make a cameo, if Rhett would have already been with her.

I think the reason Ali wasn't in LBT 10 was just because there was already a lot going on in that movie. The longnecks following their sleep stories, the Gang of Four sneaking after them, Littlefoot meeting his dad, dealing with Shorty...I'm sorry to say I think Ali would've seemed rather awkwardly shoehorned in the middle of all that. Aside from just kinda being there, what would she have contributed?

Ali should have had a cameo, but I agree there was a lot going on and I see why the writers focused on the Bron and Littlefoot arch. If Ali was to have a cameo, I would have as the other user suggested, placed her cameo after the defeat of the sharpteeth, and perhaps right after Bron leaves with his herd.

Now, a cameo like that could've worked! :yes It would have satisfied Ali fans if Littlefoot was given that moment to catch up with her, but at the same time, it wouldn't have been so much of a focus as to distract from the main story.

The question is, would Rhett have been with her?   :rhett_shocked

Ebay has some Plushie Petries, but you are right, I haven’t seen a Spike! :o

I swear, too, that there's no such thing as a good Petrie plushie. None of them are accurately colored, and few even resemble him much at all. :(petrie And how about that weird "Trick or Treat" one...um, what?? It's like they were interpreting him as a bat or something! :lol

Ruby is rare (pun intended). As if a quality grade Chomper plushie. Sigh. I did not capitalize on buying plushies when the series was airing. I missed out.  :areyouserious

I didn't get a Chomper until after the series was over, either, and I ended up (literally) paying quite a bit for that mistake. :sducky

The Playmates Chompers are definitely the nicest-looking ones out there. I have both the talking (open mouth) and non-talking (closed mouth) versions, both of which are very nicely made. Funny, though, I didn't really like the Playmates plushies of Littlefoot, Cera, or Ducky. :p (And where in the world were Spike and Petrie?? Ducky with no Spike--how could you be so cruel???)

The Ruby plushies were actually fairly easy to get on eBay at one point, or at least that chibi-ish one was (I snagged it for less than $30). I don't think sellers were realizing how rare the character was. I don't know if Ruby still pops up on there ever or not...it's been a while since I checked out LBT on eBay. (*adds to my to-do list*) :thinking

LBT Fanart / Re: Drawings by RainbowFaceProtege :)

@RainbowFaceProtege I think Journey of the Brave was not as well known as other sequels except by us fans. For instance, probably more non-fans know about Chomper and Ali than abouf Etta and Wild Arms.

I love Reba’s “I’m a Survivor.”

I've been on lockdown for 19 days and I've decided to rewatch the entire LBT series. Today was time for The Great Longneck Migration. It's incredible how after all these years this movie still fills my heart. It's hard to stop the tears listening to Bestest Friends.

I know this sequel has a lot of emotional points, but it still grinds my gears that they didn't find a way to include Ali in it. What about you guys? How do you think they should've included her?
Honestly, I've thought about it, and it made me realize something.

This is supposed to be a story about Littlefoot reuniting with his father, first and foremost. It may not look like it in the beginning, but ultimately, that's what this film boils down to. Without that, there's no other meaningful theme or message that can be gleaned. The whole Longneck migration/solar eclipse thing is just a complex excuse to get the two of them together, as well as a red herring/smokescreen to make the twist leave even more of an impact. (Plus, since this is the tenth LBT film, I assume the crew wanted to make this commemorative movie as special and epic as possible.)

Because of that, I think Ali's inclusion in the film would've been more of a detriment, a distraction from Littlefoot and Bron's storyline, than anything else. As much as I would've liked for Ali to be in the movie, I think it might've been for the best. For example, before I thought of this, I thought Ali could've played the role of Littlefoot's love interest here, and Shorty falls in love with her too, so he and Littlefoot strike up a rivalry over her. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized how out-of-place it would seem in the overall movie. I can't imagine what kind of role Bron would've played in this scenario, how it would affect Littlefoot and Bron's relationship (whether positively or negatively), and whether it would've been beneficial or detrimental to Shorty's own character arc as the writers intended it.

There's also the issue of pacing and fulfilling time quotas for the movie. The movie needs to be 85 or so minutes, otherwise I assume it would go over-budget. How much of the film would've been sacrificed just so Ali can have a role in this? Maybe there might be a sequence or two that could be cut for her sake, but once again, this goes back to my earlier argument on how out-of-place she already would be.

With that in mind, I personally can't imagine anything that would be good for her outside of a small cameo. But that's just me, though.

Honestly, I feel like had they put her in the film, she might have served a real purpose instead of being completely forgotten. This entire film's plot was simply too boring to get excited about, and it showed especially with the level of writing. I can't be the only one to think that it was probably one of the laziest in the entire franchise. From the very start, they gave us this foreshadow that the dreams the longnecks had would play a major role, but they seemed completely okay with ditching that idea before it even had a chance to take root.

We can argue that had they put her in the film, she would've become essentially useless and merely served a side role in the grand scheme of things. However, I feel like her presence would have made the movie so much more enjoyable to watch. And the talk about Littlefoot and Shorty having a quarrel about who will eventually triumph to become her mate is just ridiculous. They're children. Love is not the first thing on their mind, especially after coming to a new place in search of answers for their peculiar dreams.

Yes, the 10th film is not the best sequel there is available, but it doesn't deserve the place of being the worst sequel overall. People's opinions are not always one, and there is nothing wrong with that. :yes

I agree that in terms of pacing and the overall plot, it would be hard to find the time or the space in the movie to fit Ali in a way that would be satisfying for the fans and that would make some sense to this sequel's main story arc.

That being said I thought about a few ways that she could be introduced. One way would be for her herd to arrive in the great valley just before the sleep stories about the eclipse began. Then the old one could be the one to tell the story about how Longnecks stopped the night circle from bringing the bright circle down upon the Earth. Littlefoot and his Grandparents would follow Ali's herd to the meteorite crash site.

Seeing Littlefoot and Ali going off on an adventure together would make Cera jealous and she and the rest of the gang would follow. The third act could still be about Littlefoot meeting Bron, with Ali falling a bit to the background.

Another way would be to have Littlefoot and the gang meet Ali as they were leaving the crash site at the end of the movie and this could serve as cliffhanger for the next movie. Instead of Invasion of the Tinysaurus we'd have something like Return to the Land of Mists with Ali having a greater roll.

PS.: I had no idea there were people who liked Rhett's character.

I like the idea of a cliffhanger and a return to Valley of Mists. We waited so long for Ali to return, I expected to see her as often as we have the beloved Chomper.

There are many Rhetti or Rhettites. Like? I know someone who is Rhett’s prophet and acolyte. I speaking of you @Vojeds. :D
