@  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)

@  ▲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)

@  ▲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.

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

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

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

Yeah. It's not even a particularly large toy, under eight inches / 20 cm. I don't know if it's just an exceptionally short run item or what.

Edit: Does anyone know what the samurai mask represents? I'm not up to date on IDW and didn't know if it was something that had actually shown up.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

$300!!!

 

Looking at those pictures, I was almost ready to place an order.  But not for that price!  I might be willing to go up to $150.

Prototypes of a Tarn action figure and a weird-looking Optimus model kit. Also, Star Saber announced.

I got real excited when I saw that Tarn. But then I saw the company that's making it. I maintain my first statement.

Do you also expect Spider-Man toys to do anything a spider can?

 

 

This is such a false equivalency I can't even.

Yeah. Transformers toys generally do transform.

No Spider-Man toys to date (that I am aware of) have caught thieves just like flies.

To be honest, you're always going to give up something in the look for the transformation, and it's never going to look quite as clean and complete as a figure like this can, so there's a niche. But not for 2-3 times the price of comparable robot figures.

Hasbro won't license a transformable Transformer to another company. So any licensed third party stuff will always be of the non-transformable type.

Yeah, we just had the requisite knee-jerk "what's the point of a Transformer that doesn't transform" stuff there and whether it's by Hasbro fiat or not, the toy is the the toy it is. But it wouldn't look this nice in the details as a transforming figure no matter who made it (whether that's HasTak or MMC.)

 

That Optimus Prime model kit is bizarre. Mostly the fact that the redesign looks quite sexy in the drawing but (baggy) pants in plastic form, like the reverse of the Drift figure's interpretation of the comic design.

Maybe that drawing was done with consideration for only one angle, or the artist was of the mind that it wouldn't be interpreted quite so literally.

Gunpla fans can tell you that kit prototypes often don't look as sharp as the retail product will.

Also, more Trigger design involvement, please. I know it's the anime hipster thing to hate them now but I love their stuff.

The proportions and angles are all just subtly off from the art, though. Optimus Lagann looks great, I'd watch that anime, the kit is not capturing it.
