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.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

@  -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.

@  ▲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 XD

@  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)

@  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.

To be fair, the Wakandans have been developing this technology for centuries. Tony's made some decent leaps and bounds in just 10 years.

(It kinda begs the question of why the Black Panther armor can't fly though.)

 
When was the last time you seen a panther fly? :p
When was the last time you seen a panther walk on 2 legs and shoot metal discs at trucks?

My point was that the armor seems to simultaneously outclass the Iron Man armor while missing a basic feature of it.

So the armor without repulsors, lasers, missles, flight, on board ai and that isn't a sealed preasurized system that can function in space and underwater and seems to provide less strength enhancment outclasses the one that can do all those things?
I finally got rid of that big white box.

So um......anyone else thinking we're gonna have a little trip on the more mystic side of Black Panther's mythos?  Like I know everyone's scrambling about the tech and all but that one scene where it looks like T'Challa is confronting the Panther Spirit seems to scream that for me.

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.

Andy Serkis has returned as Ulysses Klaue (the arms dealer from "Age of Ultron") and he supports/is supported by Michael B. Jordans' Killmonger.

wait. what about falcon? he doesnt have an arc reactor. he has tiny jets in his suit right? how does his suit work? 

 

According to the concept art books, Falcon's Civil War suit did in fact have an arc reactor inside, at least at one point. Tony redesigned his suit between films which is why you see all the technological advancements, like Redwing, in the film.


Yep.

Been seeing awesome reviews for Panther. Didn't read it they were critics or fans (Ala critics love but fans hate or fans love but critics hate) but I hope it's a success.

I went to a Black Panther related event and they were doing face painting. This happened

It got it's first negative critic review from someone I've never heard of over in Ireland. Basically he cited not enough super heroic action for his tastes and that it felt like the movie was strained itself under the weight of what it felt it had to be in Trumps America, ultimately leading to some less than stellar performances and plot.

 

The internet of course then did what the internet does, calmly realize that there is no such thing as a perfect movie that everybody will love and that some people were hoping for something other than what they got and went "well 99% is pretty damn good"

 

Nah just kidding. People shit themselves with rage over losing the perfect score and mocked the reviewer and his reasoning for giving a super hero movie a medium to bad score for not being super hero-y enough for his tastes. This of course surprises nobody.

 

Honestly I'm not shocked at the bad review, or that people threw a fit over it. The idea of any movie getting a 100% critic review should be unrealistic as hell, and we've seen a lot worse reactions out angry people on the internet. I havn't read anything about them getting harassed over this yet, but it also wouldn't shock me either.

This is a second or two of me getting attacked by cosplayers.

Aaaaand I watched it. There's two extra scenes. The mid credits scene advances the story. The one at the final end can actually be skipped but it's nice to see anyway.

No spoiler thoughts but... I get why it didn't get to get 100% anymore. I wanted more of the first part really. Still good but... Lion King, hehe. My absolute favorite is Shuri. She's ... the typical but she was still awesome, hehe

Guess will spoiler discuss when it's released .
