the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

@  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.)

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

@  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.

They aren't my favorite 3P, certainly. But this looks pretty nice. I'm on board.

Ooh, that does look good. With the upsiwing in their qualiity with their more recent products, I may just pick this up if the price is right. Especially since Hasbro's not likely to be making nose-monsters soon.

Hasbro actually already took a shot at this one. It was exciting and a couple of the individuals were great, but the Abominus was not very good.

Well, I meant at a scale bigger than deluxe, but I agree about the Beast Hunters Abominus. It felt too much like the other dudes pegged on to Hun-Grr rather than a combiner.

 

The price for this is pretty good in these parts. I may just be in for this.

Also:

I started drawing Abominus but don't feel like finishing.

I should totally doodle more often. It makes things come to life! :D

My body is ready.  And yeah, I thought their individual Predacons were pretty lacking, but the combined mode was good there, and the quality of releases like Mania King have convinced me that Unique Toys is one of the better third party groups out there right now.  It looks like this is going to be a very faithful, and well-done set.  I'm in, but kind of hope the situation doesn't get confused with several sets of the same guys being made, like Blues said.  Choices are good in a way, but that situation definitely gets confusing and frustrating as well.

I feel the same way.  I kind of wish this was hitting more around Christmas though.  My wallet is a bit tapped right now.

Abominus is one of the ones I definitely wouldn't keep a couple of. This one looks good to me.

Among the Predakings, UT only won in the First-To-Market category. The combined mode is nice, no lie, and his sword is so sweet and it is great that he is already there complete. But when the other two are done, I'm going to like both of them more for different reasons. UT stayed closest to the source material, though, and when I'm not hoping for variety that's probably a good thing.

It's speculated that this was designed by the same guy that designed MMC's Feral Rex.

All I know is that this LOOKS good, but until I see some reviews on it I'm not gonna do any ordering.

I like their Blot. I want to see if their Hun-Grr before I go all-in though. If it ends up like their Predaking and taking a metric ton of kibble to combine, I'll pass.

I could certainly see that.

 

It looks good. Would be interesting to know how it scales against Maketoys Computron though.

I really don't think it is.  The aesthetics are all different.

 

I get the feeling it might be by whosoever did the TW Throttlebots.

Pretty nice looking.  Growing up, I always did like Abominus, but I don't feel the need for a 3P one.  Cool to be sure, but it's a pass.
