And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  -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.

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)

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"

@  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

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

@  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)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

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

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

We open on... A MURDER.

 

This whole issue is full of things like that. It seemed a bit chaotic at first (both in writing and art), but I think these were intentional to heighten the mystery. Right from the beginning I felt like I was being thrust into the middle of things, and I just have to know what's going on!

 

A sudden conspiracy with the Badgeless seemed a bit questionable, since they were never a big deal before, but as the issue went on I realized that this is exactly what they needed to BE a big deal. Knowing that they use armor and holorgams now, who else is behind those helmets? Does even Starscream know? Is Starscream behind whatever they're doing? Who is the mystery mnemosurgeon? Was Blast Off actually the one who said the bit about mind probing and recorded the murder? Does Swindle indeed live? Who is DC-357? Are you Ebay username ladiesman217? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.

 

Probably my only real problem with the issue was that we're not really given a timeframe, so I have no idea how concurrent the events in the two comics are. That makes it a little jarring to see Circuit and Longtooth on Cybertron when they're on Earth in Transformers: All Outta Subtitles. Also, the last time we saw Brawl he was going rage-crazy in a riot as Combiner Wars closed, and... I guess he was just sent home to sleep it off? Cybertron has the weirdest prison system.

Wasn't Brawl fighting with Galvatron in issue 50 or 51 or ex-RiD? And I'm just going off of old previews, so maybe he's been in the more recent issues, I don't know.

In exRID he took control of the Ark with Needlenose and that crew, crashed it, then left for Cybertron through the space bridge.

 

Also, my avatar is now THE BOY, who is the highlight of an already fantastic issue


Please check out my Sonic the Hedgehog project on LEGO Ideas. I've been working on it for pretty much the last year and it's almost there, so any more votes would really help me out.

One of the Badgeless at the crime scene sneaks off in the second to last panel of page 18, so that's probably Blast Off in disguise. I think he's the one who chases the green Bot into the alley and shoots him, which would also make him the one who talks about cutting up memories.

Pretty great first issue all around. Shades of the Cybertronian politicking that made exRID season 1 favourite of mine, and some great new "places" for characters. Ironhide running a security firm? How has nobody thought of that before, that's fantastic.

Excellent start. After the rushed Windblade II I feel like Scott is back on her game. Looking forward to more.

So many mysteries... I want to know what Elita and Obsidian are up too.

Yeah, Brawl and Onslaught were last seen as part of the mob of Decepticons who fled back to Cybertron through the space bridge in ex-RID #50 after Optimus rained on Galvatron's parade, and there was a line from Starscream about how Devastator being a moron allowed some of those Decepticons to escape capture.

 

As for timeframe, this was originally supposed to be out in March, so concurrently with ex-RID #51 is probably a reasonably safe bet.

I liked that as well.  Funny how both Ex-RID and this book both had Decepticons commenting on how Arcee beat them up in the past.

 

Pretty great first issue all around. Shades of the Cybertronian politicking that made exRID season 1 favourite of mine, and some great new "places" for characters. Ironhide running a security firm? How has nobody thought of that before, that's fantastic. 

 

And the two Tankors are his hired muscle/escorts.  Brill.

This issue single-handedly made me ok with Sligshot Blast Off.

 

I liked how his mouth was hidden in the first panel he appeared in, almost as if it was trying to create a mystery as to whether he'd have his classic faceplate or current CW open mouth. Then it turns out... both!

 

I agree this issue was good all-around. This is the sort of stuff I've wanted to see all along with the current situation on Cybertron... all the politics and intrigue between the differing factions.

First time I managed to care about any of the combaticons aside from Swindle (the art is a good 60% of this). I really liked this issue. It flowed well, crammed a lot in without seeming rushed, and started to address the badgeless and Chromia's murder, the two things from the first mini I did not like and felt needing resolution.

 

But man, Where did Obsidian's face even come from?

You know what I like about this book? It sets up mystery and intrigue that seem sort of... organic, and healthy, and... not crazy nonsense that will give me a headache twenty issues from now...? (Not that there isn't a time and place for that. But.)

 

More importantly, it has Knock Out and Breakdown in it. That would have been enough. Really nice art too. 

 

I hope someone gives us a little more on the whole Starscream/Bee thing soon.

Bumblebee is still alive, but he has no body. So he needs a hook-and that is Starscream.

 

At least, that's what I'm thinking.

I think that whatever the explanation, the fact that the cast list doesn't know how to list him (Ghost? Hallucination?) seems to me, to hints that we might see it addressed.

It was introduced in ex-rid right? Or did he show up in Combiner wars? Because pretty much every plot point in this ties to something Scott had her hand in rather than other ploys laying around.
