@  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.

@  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.

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

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)

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.

I still really dislike the colors on Kup, but Ironhide is making me reconsider. He's not at all too bad on eBay right now, and I think they'd look really great hanging out. Chunk truck bros. I kinda like that they both do something clever with the headlight and nose area to break up the cabin to give the chest a bit more going on, but it's not the same thing.

Rodimus:  "Autobots!  Merge to form...some big flying...thing...Ya know, never mind. I didn't think it through, ok? I don't care anymore. Forget it."
 

Snarl and Sludge:  "WE HAVE NO HEADS! WE HAVE NO HEADS! WE HAVE NO HEADS!"

 

Also, I am actually in a similar boat regarding my 'want' list.  It's entirely possible I will find something good later but for now the newer lines haven't really captured much of my attention, I have everything I want from the old ones except CounterPunch and Wreck-Gar, both of which are on order, and I'm more interested in improving what I already have or swapping out for better things than I am adding more stuff.  It's a very strange experience...

I'm guessing the actual POTP Dinobots can't attach to Rodimus that way.

Yeah, these are purely design concepts they threw around when wondering what the Leader class gimmick was gonna be. If you watch the video, John mentions that it "didn't respect the lore enough", so it never got beyond a few incredible sketches.

Didn't they have a Prima toy concept for Titans Return as well? When are they going to stop teasing us and actually release one? 

 

Also, now totally disappointed that the Leader gimmick wasn't sticking dinosaurs all over everything. That's a selling point if I've ever heard one.

The Dinobots' swords sticking out of their backs to form tiny winglets is the by far the best part of the Rodimus Prima mash-up nonsense vehicle.

No, that is 100% unquestionably Star Saber. So much so that I didn't even notice it wasn't until you just called it Starscream.

Anyway, you know what's really important to me when thinking about toy gimmicks? Respecting the lore.

Honestly, the concept is baffling and I'm glad they went the direction they ultimately did instead, and the main thing I'm finding interesting here is that there were concepts for Prima and Star Saber. Hot Rod's armored form does also have a lot in common with the final product, and probably explains why he's the odd guy out with an evolved form that doesn't derive from an animation model (although there still wouldn't have been anything to work with in his case anyway.) But this is still a really fascinating insight that I don't expect from these LfC videos.

 

Edit: But yeah, new is good, but only if the new is ... good.
