My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

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.

@  -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.

@  -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)

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)

@  ▲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.

Or why is DC obsessed with being cool?

Examples being the superman revamp in the comics and animated movies

Everything Aquaman

The film comments about Martian Manhunter

I love Superman for the fact that he isny cool, and that he is older. You van syill do a superman that isny perfect without him being super aggresive.

Everything about the films says we dont like what we are.

DC as a whole seems to be trying to catch up to Marvel in the comics. Before Rebirth/New 52, everything seemed to go grimdark, like they're trying to match the Ultimate Marvel line in terms of realism and storytelling. Only now post-Rebirth have they foregone well...MOST of the darkness, and are now focusing on storytelling. And it's going pretty well for them. Marvel's fallen as of late but hopefully shifting away from realism and political commentary post-Secret Empire, we'll have the big two finally focus on stories.

 

As for the films...I think Zack Snyder is too focused on big moments instead of actual storytelling, and that's why the DC movies have been failing. It's just big moments string together with no cohesion.

Here's a video explaining this more than I can:


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Isn't the Superman revamp in the comics inherently uncool? He's married with a kid?

But he first showed up like that in late 2015.

Wait, no, the first half of that year since he was in Convergence.

Did i mention Superman as the only thing i was speaking about in the post? Did i mention a set time period?

Are we not getting a Aquaman in the movies that is drastically different appearance wise from the comics and who was described as-wolverine-ish?

Because i still believe its going on. And i believe thats partly to blame for the shitty movies, their lack of understanding why people enjoyed their properties.

You singled out one thing that recently changed with the original superman coming to the New 52 universe just to make a snarky comment that added nothing to the discussion.

Thanks. 😚😚😚

Edit: directed at cat, but you replied to it so whatever. The New 52 us exactly where it started in my opinion.

No, it was just a prominent example, and that's why it stood out, as it seemed to me he's never been more uncool (arguably) with the baggage of the marriage and a kid. Look at the hoops Marvel jumped through to avoid putting Spider-Man in that situation. 

 

 

 Did i mention a set time period?

 

Yeah, you did, New 52. Just up there. *makes pointy gesture*

Only if you wish to pick a specific incarnation. This is going to get into opinions. To me, he's on par with the feel of the David era Aquaman, obviously with an extra hand, and without the weird single-boob man-bra thing. I think Aquaman, Superman, and Wonder Woman look the best out of all the League (Batman looks great but I'm unenthused after seeing BvS). 
 
I don't know where the comment came from on him looking 'Wolverine-ish'. I really can't see any basis for comparison. Like, any. At all. I've literally got nothing.

The Wolverine comment was made by someone involved in the films.

And New 52 Superman started off as trying to update Superman and make him more hip. I dont know whats so hard to understand about that.

The New 52 is going on six years at this point. Maybe not the best point of reference for another "DC Movies suck" rant.

 

(I mean they do suck but it's not because of they think of their image. If that other monstrosity of a thread I started says anything, it's that they don't care.)

I know New 52 Superman. But New 52 Superman, like the New 52, is dead, and it's been dead for almost a year at this point DC is now about Rebirth, and that's made it the king of the sales charts, month in, month out. Marvel's a distant speck, and would be a complete loss if it didn't have the Star Wars license to this point. Rebirth is all about a distinct change in tone and storytelling, in general atmosphere. So complaining about a DC that's obsessed with being cool, the New 52 and all that, well, umm, sorry, but that's the old DC. You've got some catching up to do.

I definitely think that has an influence on it. Even their Justice League trailer sucks. Everything about it says look how cool we are!

Someone saying Snyder is obaessed with big moments as opposed to storytelling and i can see that.

And this is coming from someone who liked Superman V Batman on first viewing. And even if its just Snyder, it still falls on DC because they allow it.

Im not in love with marvel movies lime everyone else but Captain America is boring and unbearable to me in the comics buy the movies made me love him.

DC needed to do that with Superman, whom i already loved.

Uh the recent superman issue where SPOILERS happen says otherwise. Yes, its the best of both worlds but it was extremely convoluted and i guess well have to see how it pans out.

And actually i dont have a problem with movie Aquaman, he looks fun from the newest trailer. And i liked his 90s look better than the original one.

I just hate the reasoning for the switch back, when he looks different in the comics. Its like they felt like audiences wouldnt accept it.
