My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

Surely these are bigger than regular Bearbricks? I'd be really surprised if they were normal Bearbrick size. I'm looking at a regular one now, as it's been on my desk for awhile.

 

The only thing I don't like is the ears, in robot mode. It looks like they're all wearing Mickey Mouse hats.

I would by an Optimus Primal one of those.

Transforming from a near-humanoid animal to a robot is kind of his thing.

I kind of wish the bear forms had nothing to do with the internal robot modes. If by a Megatron Panda just for the silliness because of that art made several years ago as a joke.

I think really I'd like this better if they gave them random outer bear color schemes that had nothing to do with Transgorners. And you don't realize who they are until you transform it. Takara is kind of missing a great oppourtunity here.

If theses were blind packed with several bear color schemes. And let's say you have different bear themes. You'd have no idea who's who abd would get a surprise when transforming them.


Also anyone else think that Bumble bee and Megatron look like their lukewarm about this idea. And Starscream is smiling that smug smirk because he both loves it and is enjoying that Megatron hates looking like a cute bear.

These are all neat but I sort of wish they didn't carry the bear ears into robot mode.


If the do something like a Scourge from Optimus. I hope they don't tie the bear form to the robot mode. Since I wouldn't mind a green skull deco over a black body. Like this just a bit less ugly.

It'd only be a crappy piece of hipster merchandise if it didn't transform.

Yeah, the usual Bearbrick MO is "print licensed character onto cheap bear mold, sell to fans with more money than sense for more money than makes sense."  Even the clearanced ones on BBTS are like, ten bucks for what amounts to an off-brand minifig.  Of course, that also means that when they go beyond the minimum quality, the price will probably be something like $50 each if they get a U.S. release, more like $100 if they have to be imported.

 

At a guess, these are about 4-5" tall in robot mode, assuming the fists are 5mm compatible.

Yeah the fact that it can transform actually makes them cool. I just wish they didn't put bear ears on the robot modes. Secondly if they experiment by giving us different bear shell decos and make unique repaints of the characters based on that. I think it's much more interesting than them just being all teh g1. Since hyper g1isj merchandise is getting boring by now. You can sell original characters like op, bee, Starscream, and Meg's. And make them look g1 but you can do some interesting decos that you normally see on vinyls of these types of bears. That transfer into the robot modes and it would feel like something fresh and new.

I probably would buy the Optimus and Megatron if they did something fresh for a deco of them.


It's not that I'm tired of uber g1ishness. I just don't think any of these would catch for me until they do something fresh with them.

I picked up Starscream today, and might get Optimus at some point. Kind of a weird picky approach, but I purposely skipped Bumblebee and Megatron, because I don't like how their faction sigil are split across their shoulder armor in robot mode.

I think they're perfect desk toys.

I have Megatron because I could not resist big bad evil Decepticon warlord turning into a teddy bear. It's actually a clever transformation and great sculpt though. If they were a little cheaper, I'd consider one or two of the others.
