Hey everybody! I wanted to announce that Sarahthecutevixen is our newest addition to the Allspark staff. She's primarily looking over discord stuff, but I wanted to make sure she got a welcome over here as well.

@  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.

@  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.

So glad the boards are back!

@  Echowarrior : (06 June 2021 - 07:45 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,

That Crosshairs is the one of 20 unmade concepts that were shown at BotCon 2014 at the BotCon Retrospective Panel.

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.

You know, all four of those appear to have preexisting headsculpts on them. Crosshairs's is BotCon 2013 Hoist's/Electrons's head, Brainstorm's is FOC Vortex's head, Triggerhappy's looks to be some Optimus Prime's head minus its side antennae, Nightbeat's looks familiar too but I can't quite put my finger on whose it is.

 

Of course, this means nothing in regards to what the final headsculpts would have looked like had these all gotten made.

This Nightbeat hails from the universe of "Prevenge". The Skuxxoid was mad that a character who didn't even appear on TV was more popular than him, so he got ahold of magic to curse Nightbeat into having an ugly chassis.

Neat!
It's funny cuz I thought Apeface's head would look really good as Skyfall too! Except I figured Triggerhappy would be a better body.

I'm guessing that either he wasn't available to use when these concepts were made or someone else better would have been using it already.

I'm guessing they didn't know about Triggerhappy when planning a BotCon that would never be.

Or perhaps they simply had a different opinion on what figure would be a better fit?

But you're certainly not wrong to point out that the Triggerhappy mold would have been developed later than Highbrow's, and thus possibly too late for inclusion.

I have to wonder how a Botcon assortment would work out with TR stuff, since they'd only have to budget for faces instead of entire heads.  Or would it have ended up the same?

I think when you're working on that low a scale, the difference in price of the metal molds is immaterial.

That said, based on Takara's releases, Fun Pub would benefit from being able to release any head with any body, so they likely wouldn't need as many new-head retools.

Indeed, the number of already-existing head options, while obviously not infinite, is clearly huge.

ZacWilliam, I would have wanted him as the young Omni-changer of the tech specs rather than the horrible IDW sociopath.
