@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:00 AM)

Even writing them generally in katakana is a consistent treatment, and gives someone learning the language a general expected approach. I'd say the anecdotal frustration with English by those learning it compared to learning other languages as a second language is a demonstration that this sort of consistency and organization was not a valued thing in the past few centuries of the language's development.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

Frankly, it just sounds like you think other languages seem a certain way because you don't look into them all that much.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

It's pretty pervasive in Japanese as well, with how these feature into everyday speech.. And I don't know what you even mean by "deep", since writing them in a particular character set basically calls attention to not just their derivative nature, but their relative recency as well.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 12:25 AM)

Indeed, every language has those artifacts if you examine deeply enough, but in English they're not deep, and they're pervasive.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:56 PM)

like Japanese using three different script types together, and more recent word borrowings tend to be in katakana.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:51 PM)

I don't know what you mean by "cohesively". Borrowings are probably obvious if you know what to look for.

"Generations Cyber ​​series" catalogs images, etc.
In the catalog of the Brazilian distributors for, new series of Generations has been posted.

The listed is the "Generations Cyber ​​series" that new line, pattern of low age for simple deformation items in the motif G1 character. It seems to expand in two sizes.

"Cyber ​​11 Assorted" is, to catalog the size of the street 11 inches of its name (about 28 cm), Optimus Prime and Bumblebee of G1-style new design has been published.

Another size is a "cyber 7 Assorted", 7 inches (about 18 cm). Megatron to deform in tanks has been posted. Perhaps, Star Scream, which was exhibited in special events of the Children's Museum of Indianapolis other day, I will think or not than a lineup of seven inches size of series.

Pattern of release since autumn.

Hmm... Megaton looks cool. Prime looks ok but a bit deformed. Bumblebee looks kinda awful.

-ZacWilliam, BB looks like they tried to merge the G1 and RiD looks and ended up with an ugly mess.

Don't understand the purpose of these, they're made for younger fans but have designs that are based on the G1 guys instead of the current show? I mean Optimus and Bee there transform EXACTLY like their new cartoon designs, but for some bizzare reasons use the G1 designs yet keeps the alt mode of the new show anyway?

 

Is Hasbro's Faith on their new cartoon line, that is already pretty cheap and lacking, THAT low?

Or, to not be needlessly Pessa-Fan-mistic , maybe they know there are a segment of adults who like to buy little kids the versions of the Characters they grew up with.

-ZacWilliam, having a segment of Gen aimed at kids does not mean they've forsaken RiD or CW, it just means they're expanding out to potentially cover more/all audiences...

I hope these have at least BW level articulation, since the Prime and Megatron designs are actually pretty nice.

Well, those are fascinating, conceptually. It's hard to really say much more without seeing something higher-res.

 

I know for sure they're not for me, though. If my son was a couple of years older, I'd say they'd be right up his alley (as it stands, I'm waiting for the 2015 Rescue Bot figures to make it here).


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!

These look great. I've started really hating a lot of modern toys; individually they can be fun, but you can't play with a group of them because they're just too involved for that. These look like fun versions of the characters.

 

I'm not surprised to see kid toys based on G1-enough designs. Kids have just as much access to G1 as they do to a current show; hell, a lot of them won't see RID until it's streaming someplace, but they can watch G1 any time. My kid is familiar with broadcast / cable TV, but it's not really part of his life. Welcome to the future.

Seriously. If they have at least basic points of articulation I'm really excited for these. Shoulders, elbows, hips and knees are all I ask for. Anything more is a bonus.

I will add that an 11 inch bumblebee seems a little excessive. At least Megatron will fit in better with other figures.

If a way to redo some of the popular Classics/Generations characters sorely in need of updates already, I would be quite interested in a Grimlock from this line. Rodimus (Prime!) too.
