Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

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.

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.

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.

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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 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"

@  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)

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.

I think we should take it easy, wiki-wise.  Do a clinical write up, then add snark judiciously.  Although it probably does need a lot of "Windblade, exactly as you remember her from the G1 cartoon!" kind of stuff.

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.

might be nice to have an article written without snark for a change. ..perhaps even become inspired by how horrible this show is, to de-snark the entire Wiki.

Windblade got her cheap shot in because Megatron was clearly winding down into, "Okay, I suppose I'll listen to what you have to say" mode.  Fight's over...oh wait, Out-Of-Character Lass needs to get in her cheap shot.

 

Personally, I found that to be the worst Megatron voice acting outside of a fan production, and the textures on the scenery gave me TF:Cybertron flashbacks to the crappy skins they used to try to make Primus and Unicron look huge and highly-detailed.

It's pretty in-character for this version's deranged Windblade, though.

 

Heh, a lot of Cybertron flashbacks lately, really.  At least Cybertron's framerate didn't suck, when it wasn't using still frames anyway.

So for those who wisely resisted watching that piece of drek, but still want to know.

 

10 Maxima

9 Computron

8 Menasor

7 Victorion

6 Rodimus

5 Devastator

4 Starscream

3 Windblade

2 Megatron

1 Optimus

 

So of the top ten list, three are dead, two we technically haven't seen yet, and one is completely and utterly obvious. You'd think the Mistress of the Flame would at least take the ten spot for still being alive, even if she hasn't done anything so far.

When it got to Rodimus, I felt certain they were going to go into a "Har, Rodimus was LAME!" bit, but they actually didn't really talk about him at all.  Well, plenty of time for the actual show to do that, so I guess I'd better reserve my bile for a better time.

That stroppy walk before she slaps Megatron. That random giggle.

 

They made Windblade a generic anime tsundere!

 

 

Lots of bad reads/scripting this time. Particularly "Ah, the speaker who became a killer" exchange. Yeah, Megatron, you're a famous tyrant. I'm pretty sure everyone got you were praising her killing, not her speaking.

Megatron's been the best part so far. Meanwhile, we've still got very few combiners in these Combiner Wars...

 

Really, this should have been called "Transformers: More Than Meets the Budget."

 

Stop-motion would probably have been a better, more affordable way to do this that would allow for all the Combiners to be used in some way. Hell, I'd take Robot Chicken mouths if it helped tighten things up in other places.

 

Incidentally, regarding Megatron being his G1 model, it looked sort of like the Devastation model to me. That is, as G1 as G1 can be, but for a few tiny bits -- aren't those the fenders, or whatever they'd be called on a tank, of his treads on his backside? Very downplayed, but still.
