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.

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

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

Ghostbusters:Afterlife just got booted from its summer spot.  Release date is now March of next year.  It's GI Joe Retaliation all over again!  Hasbro might end up with a rougher 2nd and 3rd quarter.  Even with production issues, they have to hold inventory until next year.  Or we'll see a weird split release where the OG Ghostbuster stuff hits this fall with the new movie stuff rolling out next spring.

 

But seriously, with the long standing delays, it seems that most of the major early to mid year releases have been bumped to next year.  Which will probably make up for the many films that have had filming disrupted by Virus isolation.

Its disappointing for sure, but at this point a decent way to make sure they will have something for next year in the theatre. Morbius also got booted to next year taking the slot of an unannounced Marvel Sony film.

Well, looks like a clip from a lost Ghostbusters cartoon turned up thanks to good old Phelous.

 

Link only as there is one utterance of the f-bomb.

Anyway, if anyone visits Wal-Mart, better check out the action figure aisle.  Habsro is re-issuing the original Real Ghostbusters action figures.

Saw a case on a trolly at my local store.  I'm actually quite surprised given my store's exceptionally iffy history with exclusive products (at least ones that aren't part of massive product trains, anyway).  I still wonder if they just got a case by mistake....

So the Plasma series figures are rolling out. I have Half the Busters rolling in from BBTS and the other two from Amazon.  But I really want to complete the Demon doggo. I already snagged a Torso but something tells me that I'm going to have to buy Gozer in order to get the head. But there's the sticking point of this line. Only hardcore Buster fans are probably going to keep Gozer. I mean Zuul Dana is at least good for possible Sigourney custom fodder. But that Gozer figure doesn't even look good as Gozer.

 

For that matter this line feels like it's going to be fizzled out pretty soon. I mean there is some good stuff to build on. GB2 versions of the guys, including Louis in his GB gear. Gotta get a Slimer at some point. Possibly Vigo. If they can make some of the more memorable Ghosts That'd be great too. And while I despise how ATC was handled they could always do the Girls too., And of course Afterlife will need representation. But then what? I mean there is plenty of other things they could draw from. Extreme GB, IDW characters, the Rookie from the video game.... but the sad truth is this franchise is primarily built upon Pete, Egon, Winston, and Ray. We could see the line expand past that but outside of Stuff like Slimer or doing the Guys in their Real GB suit colors and the like, but would it really sell that well? I mean there are outlier things I could see like Kylie or Janine in GB gear but how much of the rest would actually be really wanted.

I'd love to see ghosts from the cartoons brought in with some crazy realistic sculpts. And seeing stuff like Samhain, Boogeyman, or the Grundel would be cool. But after that....? I feel like this is a line that will go by pretty fast unless a fire is lit in the minds of the toy buying fans.

Grabbed the full set of GB's from the Kenner Classics line! And gotta admit these are really underwhelming nowadays :D

 

But hey as a kid before TMNT got big, Real Ghostbusters was probably the first fandom I really delved into yet I never got any toys. So after years of looking at them in Sears catalogs I have them at last!
