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."

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.

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

@  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".

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Impactor looks great, now to wait for his vehicle mode.

 

Although I find myself wishing I could go back and convincing Hasbro to wait on the FoC Wreckers and waiting for CW. I haven't even thought of making upgraded versions of those guys.

Thank goodness that's probably not the case.  Granted Cloud made Generations Impactor G1 Impactor, but I don't need more Aligned guys over updates of the original G1 versions if one doesn't exist.  Granted if we already had updated versions of Ruckus, Windsweeper, and Needlenose I wouldn't care, but we don't so I do.  :)

 

I'm also kind of hoping that Spinister ends up with painted eyes over the visor like the two Fisitrons and Adventure Adams.

Well the secret figure hasn't probably changed when Impactor replaced whoever he originally replaced.  So the 7th figure is probably not linked to Impactor if he was a late addition / replacement as was stated at BotCon.

 

'Pactor just nudged me into going for the FSS. Now, I don't suppose these guys will come with cards other non-deluxe CW figures come with? Granted they are pointless, stupid and sometimes the art don't match the figures but damnit I want them.

 

I'd guess they wouldn't but they'd come with the standard bio cards the TCC / BotCon figures all come with.

Impactor is a really great fit, I've even considered not getting MMC's Spartan because of it, since I've tended a little more toward liking simpler, more playable, official Hasbro versions of characters over third party offerings lately. Really, the entire combiner sub set really nails some great homages, except for the questionable Bludgeon (sorry, guys).

 

I think I'd rather see them paint both fists though, rather than just leave one unpainted and pretend it's not there in lieu of a remold or new accessory to cover it. I'm probably being weird, but that seems just a bit cheesy to me. :)

Alright you clowns, see this:

 

Hot Spot - Pyro

First-Aid - Ironfist

Alpha Bravo - Rotorstorm (but new mould preferred)

Rook - Impactor

Firefly - Snare

Groove - exo suit Verity

Legends Warpath - Guzzle

Pyro from Hot Spot remains my #1 most wanted Combiner Wars redeco. The mould is all but perfect for him.

EDIT: Oh wait, and Deluxe Rescue Bots too, though that doesn't work so perfectly now it seems we may not get a Nosecone to make Boulder from (the others being Chase from Streetwise, Heatwave from First Aid and Blades from Alpha Bravo, of course).

These guys will come with TCC style bio cards. IE more index card sized, with art and a pretty decent bio.

They've been doing them in that format since long before Combiner Wars did the art-only ones, and all three prior years of the subscription came with them. People want to continue their collections of them, no doubt.

Yeah, I kinda wish it had been a Thunderwing from Cyclonus (if doable, that is), since he interacted with all four of these Mayhem Deluxes in the Matrix Quest.

Bludgeon, however, did not interact with the other four, having been sent to Earth prior to the Matrix Quest, and not returning to Cybertron until after the other four stopped appearing the comic.
