@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:20 PM)

Perfection. :thumbsup

@  Patch : (11 July 2020 - 06:17 PM)

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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

King Nine, however, will not return.

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

@  -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

@  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)

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

Man.  The news I have seen is just that they are making Thundercats figures in the scale of MotU (about the original scale, a little smaller) and this thread has turned it into a subscription service and the toys will all be terrible.

No one's actually complained about the toys themselves tho, just some saltiness regarding MattyCollector.
I'm waiting fot tomorrow's official reveal so I can be "How bout dem toys,gais?!"

Eh, there'll still be complaints.  Like how the Ghostbusters were all released on the same body sculpt, despite the actors' physical differences, or how they actually wore their uniforms (pants tucked/not tucked in boots).  Or how the particle stream effects pieces didn't come with the original basic releases, so if you wanted them, you had to double-dip on some otherwise insignificantly different set.

 

Watch the first Lion-O release to come with the Sword of Omens only in its dagger form or something stupid, forcing you to buy a later figure for the real deal.

 

It's an unsettling pattern of disrespect the company continually shows its "fans".  That little snot of a mascot they use for their fansite is hilariously appropriate to their apparent attitude.  I personally cannot fathom why anyone would hand money to the little punk.

 

They've frankly got a long way to go in order to earn any form of respect and/or trust, given the long history of shenanigans they've pulled on collectors.  Some of their antics would be excusable at retailer level (like doling out additional accessories for rereleases/variants), but not at exclusive, online-only, for-the-fans double price level.

Yep - Mattel has a well-earned reputation. That doesn't mean we aren't all hoping to be wrong!

The Venkman I have has is pants not tucked into his boots (tho he is slimed. that kinda bugged me)

Eh, I must say I am not happy with the news. I care absolutely nothing for the old show - if they made toys of the awesome designs of the new show, then I'd be interested. Otherwise this is another overpriced deluxe line like the MOTU one to milk the franchise from the pockets of a minority of hardcore fans.

Here's hoping to be wrong because the 4H do a great job sculpting; a MOTUC-style redux of the Tcats will look amazing, it's just the act of getting them that will suuuuuuuuck.

I like the Mumm-ra, but I can do without Liono and Jackalman.  And honestly, I know what I said before, but I've seen pictures now and...if you can't make Thundercats that *I* would buy, you've done a terrible job.  I don't know where you will find a readier market than me.

Out of genuine curiosity, what are you looking for in a Thundercats "Classic" line?

In my mind, Thundercats aren't He-Man.

The squat, muscle-bound disproportion of the MOTU bucks simply doesn't result in the kind of feline forms that I would like for Thundercats. Lion-O is a tall dude with long legs. This toy is not that.

Something not so ugly.  A 10-year-old made that Liono out of PlayDoh.  I think the eyebrows are the worst, but the hair on him and Jackalman looks really weird.

My first thought was that was a little harsh, as the Four Horsemen are great sculptors.  But upon closer inspection, I do sorta see what you're talking about.  The hair striations are really oddly uniform on those sculpts, and don't look quite natural.

 

Otherwise, I don't really have much to add here any further than what's been said already.  I'm not a Thundercats fan in the least, never having seen the 80's cartoon, and only a few random eps of the new (cancelled) series.  I can definitely see how the sculpts are looking a little too MotU, though.  Don't remember Lion-O being quite that thick.  Probably Mattel's notorious cheapness at work again, forcing the use of MotU bucks again.

That is a fair point. I could see a He-man buck being good for Panthro, but a slightly leaner look would be better for the rest. Tygra especially will look all wrong if he's that built.

I think they look great actually.

 

And while Mattel made a lot of mistakes, the new people in charge of the line seem to be a TON better than that giant nerd Toy Guru was.

 

I forgot to mention the subscription service will not only be spread out over the next four years, but it will involve an annual ad campaign that is equal parts wheedling, pleading and passive-aggressively blaming the consumer for not being dedicated-enough-fans-and-it's-all-your-fault-if-this-fails!

 

Now that the snivling Scott Nietlich is gone, that's not how they do things.

 

Also kudos for them showing pretty much all of what to expect in 2016.
