Do not X0 quietly into the night.

All your Bass are--

@  Donocropolis : (14 June 2021 - 05:56 AM)

*Bass X0 not available in Alaska or Hawaii.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2021 - 07:36 PM)

Get your own Big Mouth BassX0 for the low price of $19.95 (plusshippingandhandling)

@  repowers : (13 June 2021 - 12:45 PM)

Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

Just don't drop him.

@  Kaon : (12 June 2021 - 08:03 PM)

man this chat is nothing but Bass X)

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  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.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

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.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

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

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

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

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

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

@  Bass X0 : (07 June 2021 - 02:22 PM)

Yes Cybershark, and now no force in the universe can stop us.

@  Cybersnark : (07 June 2021 - 10:03 AM)

Aaaan we're back!

@  Telly : (06 June 2021 - 09:07 PM)

@  repowers : (06 June 2021 - 02:18 PM)

WHAT!!! ALLSPARK!!! you IN LIVE!!!!!!

@  Donocropolis : (06 June 2021 - 01:53 PM)

Indeed. I was missing it.

@  Shockwave 75 : (06 June 2021 - 11:35 AM)

So glad the boards are back!

@  Echowarrior : (06 June 2021 - 07:45 AM)

It's alive! Alive!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2021 - 08:32 PM)

Aw man, I missed this place...

@  Sabrblade : (05 June 2021 - 08:31 PM)

Now here in Manhattan, the spell is broken! And we live again!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (05 June 2021 - 08:16 PM)

Groovy.

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 07:23 PM)

How is everyone

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 06:42 PM)

test

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  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.

I had no intention of going to a convention covering Hasbro and its brands, but since it's in RI (just about an hour away), I think I really have no choice.

 

Coming from a devote BotCon loyalist, I'm already not liking the sound of it.  :D

Not AS exciting as having a Botcon in Rhode Island but given 1) Botcon no longer exists, 2) how frustratingly rarely Botcon was in driving distance of me here in New England when it did exist 3) How easy to get to Providence is for me and how really nice Providence is... I am ABSOLUTELY there with the whole family.

Sounds like it could be fun. :)


-ZacWilliam, the fact that I love lots of Hasbro properties even beyond Transformers doesn't hurt either.

They've also announced that a new Transformers fan club will be starting. You can sign up to an email newsletter for updates, and you also get a 20%-off HTS code in the welcome email.

I look forward to their exclusive, which will most likely be the same mildly redecoed item from SDCC.

I revise my first statement in that I'll only be interested based on the guests, events, and possibly the exclusives.

 

If it's nothing exciting, it won't be worth the drive to me.

There were no Joe fans at Joecon, I don't know why you'd expect there to be any at Hascon.

Might be tempted, given how relatively unexpensiveasy that destination might be for me. As PC said, waiting on guests/events to decide.

And it won't be a "OMG-ONLY-3RD-PARTY-R-COOLZ" con like some other people seem to want so I have an interest.

I can see they've thought long and hard abut their international fanbase already then...

 

Also the client client certificate for the website is broken, and actually brings up big flashing red warning messages in Chrome. It's like FunPub never went away!

If it's meant as a grownup fandom related thing, "Hascon" seems offputting to me. It's a convention around an actual company. That's weird, right?

 

If it's a thing for presumably local people whose kids are into toys, it can work. Like a big, impressive, weird version of taking the family to the Utz factory. That feels like the direction they're going in, and I'm good with that.

Oh, whoops, that was my fault - I typed the link by hand and the 's' shouldn't have been there. Fixed.

But yeah, I was not given hope when the post-sign-up 'tell us more' bit just offered a list of US states for location...

If you're ever in New Haven, I strongly recommend dropping by the Pez Visitor Center. It's not big, but it's fascinating. And you can watch them make Pez!

Definitely. We did a day at the Pez Factory/Museum and Yale Peabody Museum this summer with the kids and everyone loved it.


-ZacWilliam, I've loved Peabody since I was a small child but this was my first time to PEZ and while it wasn't big it was very cool for the kids.
