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.)

@  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)

@  ▲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 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)

@  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"

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

New photos of MP-11SW Skywarp in and out of box.

 

15491002953_68e8078b21_b.jpg 16108779071_43a87b76ab_b.jpg

 

He looks magnificent, that purple and black is so exquisite.  The coin and holder are neat.

 

Though the fact that the knee vents aren't light blue is a detail I think had this been TakaraTomy and not Hasbro Asia Masterpiece they would have gotten that detail right.  That's not even getting into the extra stripes or anything.

Are the stripes on his shoulders and wrists direct carry-overs from Takara's last Skywarp?

The other Takara MP11 figures didn't, so I'm not surprised personally.

Seem to be. Just in a different color.

New photos of the upcoming Hasbro Asia / TakaraTomy MP-11SW Masterpiece Skywarp figure have surfaced via Chinese website TaoBao.  These images show off the figure in package, the exclusive coin, as well as the contents inside their clear bubble.  MP-11SW Skywarp comes with Megatron in gun mode and Dr. Arkeville pilot.  Unlike the MP-3 releases he does not include a stand or the coronation gear from the MP-11 releases.  The packaging does appear to be significantly smaller than the other MP-11 releases.  Skywarp is set for release on January 5th, 2015 in China under the TakaraTomy label by Hasbro Asia.  Based on the appearance of these photos it appears the figure has arrived to at least some retailers if not collectors as well.

Damn. I was foolishly hoping the final product wouldn't have those stripes. The purple on the shoulders and the silver on the chest turbines are likely painted, too, so removing them would not be easy. He's so close to perfection, too.

I guess it's better than not having a Skywarp at all, but what a shame.

The only only MP Seekers I've used the stand with are the old style, where the alt mode looks better than the robot mode IMO. Maybe Tomy had received some feedback stating something similar?

The price hurts quite a bit and while I understand that MP 11 didn't come with a stand, I do wish that this Skywarp release did.  The only other MP seekers I have are MP11 Screamer and TRU Thundercracker, and I love posing Thundercraker on his stand, hovering in bot mode.  It would be nice to be able to do the same with Skywarp. 

 

Having said that though, Skywarp still looks insanely awesome.  I love that he comes with Dr. Arkeville in his white lab coat, as I don't have that figure yet; the Megatron gun will be nice to have as well.  I'm definitely keeping the preorder.

PM sent, good sir. And yep, the coins are a fun offshoot to collect, albeit one that's become more expensive due to a decent crowd realising their pluses as a collectible on their own. Nice way to basically get a discounted MP, if you don't want them and know someone who does.

If the stripes on his arms, shoulders, and chest intakes are a bit of a bother for some, what of the yellow on his wings?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Blasted knee vents need to be light blue!!!

 

Won't anyone ever get that right?!  :angry :D  :p

It's a carry over from MP-3 / MP-6 / MP-7 Seekers.  Where that was colored in yellow.

Man, that unpainted crotch. And the Decepticon symbols are oriented the wrong way.

All the little things really add up. I have a preorder, but I'll have to really think about whether I feel like he's worth the money at this point.

The symbols bother me the most.  That and the dark gray instead of light blue shins.

Probably because it's a Hasbro Asia only thing (like the Gold Megatron).

Oooh, it looks like this purple on his shoulders and forearms might be molded rather than painted? That'll make removal of those stripes way easier...

 

What the. His symbols are facing the right way on the underside of the wings, but not the top side.

I just wish the MP-11 mold had a slightly more appealing face.

And yes, I was too lazy to come up with a decent TF related forum name, and just *GASP* used my own.
