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)

@  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.

@  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.

@  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"

Megatronus, however, I'm sad to say, is not so pristine. His left shoulder joint has a defect. The inner cavity on the arm that the shoulder peg slots into is missing some plastic that is meant to make the hole a complete circle, making the cavity slightly larger than it should be and thus making the arm's connection to the torso rather loose and delicate. It'll stay on if I'm gentle with the little figure and don't move the arm, but it does come off rather easily. On the flipside, this defect does give the left arm a greater range of motion than it was intended to have, but it also makes Megatronus look like his left shoulder is constantly sagging and slouching while his right shoulder remains firm at attention.

 

 

i dont think mine has the exact same issue, but his left arm also comes off fairly easy

It legitimately baffles me how whomever is in charge of case distributions thought that having her as the sole figure in the final wave of an already cut-short series would be a good idea.

 

Seriously. Would've been really nice to get a retool of Jazz as Richochet or Nightbeat as well.

 

Hmm. I suppose the likely explanation is that the paint budget intersected with wave scheduling to result in only 1 new figure for the final wave, but nonetheless, I am disappointed that Elita Infin1te's art consequently has an digital-only black repaint Jazz. It certainly would have made wave 4 fresher.

 

Now can someone explain this to me? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just don't understand how paint app/retool budgets would intersect with wave releases.

Well, they switched to stickers on Wave 3 of Titans Return Voyagers.  

 

 

My personal theory was that Wave 4 being mostly Wave 2 repacks was because they knew in advance that Wave 2 was going to be considerably harder to find.  But then Hasbro promised more Wave 2 on social media and then that wave actually started showing up more, after Wave 3 even.  Which doesn't mesh with the months-in-advance production time.  Unless Wave 3 shows up en masse before WFC:S stuff starts hitting shelves.  Man, this line has just been weird.

It certainly would have made wave 4 fresher.

 

Now can someone explain this to me? I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just don't understand how paint app/retool budgets would intersect with wave releases.

 

 

Basically, they only have "X" number of slots for figures available for the year based on their proposed budget. The total cost for everything (paint, remolds, etc) is spread across the entire year's releases. This enables them to dedicate more resources to one figure that may need it while cutting back on another that might not. If it's a shorter run over all, things may not divide out evenly over four waves, so you get one new figure that is left hanging with 3 repacks in the final wave.

 

My theories for this particular run are a) Hasbro knew they HAD to get all the Dinobots out there or there'd be riots - so they were front-loaded. I think they also gambled (and maybe lost) that retailers would skip wave 2 and go straight to wave 3, which is why they repacked Rippersnapper and Blackwing in wave 4 (also theoretically all the Terrorcons would be on the pegs at the same point with a fresh round of Rippersnappers out there). They just stuffed Slug in there for kicks, and tacked on Novastar to get her out the door.

 

Of course. I have no factual basis to this whatsoever. :D

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.
