It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

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.

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 XÖ 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)

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)

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 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,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

I actually don't have a problem with Ironhide's face. (Maybe that's not surprising, since I think the movie TFs have fantastic faces that aren't just magical metal human faces - well, weren't originally, anyway.) It's a little cartoony, but it has character and isn't just a human face painted silver or whatever that atrocity Arcee has is.

 

I do have a problem with his crapped-out body, but I've pretty much done my bit on that enough for even me to be sick of it.

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.

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.

Comicbookmovie.com has an interview with Jason Drucker (Otis) about his time on the film, working with Hailee Steinfeld and what he'd like to see in a sequel. Check it out.

Its on the front page too.

Ironhide's face is actualy bad in a very specific way that makes me wonder if the artist that did the in-detail pass on the head saw the early sketch on the upper left and didn't realize the original picture has part of his chin being covered by his chest armor, leading to him really honest to god thinking that he was supposed to give Ironhide a super-low mouth with little to zero jaw-mass.

Ironhide and Arcee's faces... doesn't really bug me?  We live in a world where AoE Drift's face exists and you basically can't get worse than that, especially when it's moving.

Watched this on 4K. My first viewing since it was in the theaters. Definitely liked it more a second time. Not that I didn't like it the first time, just more now.

Cena in the outtakes is pretty great.

I've been to 6 different Walmart, Meijer, and Target stores this past weekend and all of them were sold out of the 4K copy.  However, seeing the news on the front page about the digital download of the original 1986 movie when you buy Bumblebee in 4K, I'm glad I've waited until now.  That's a nice little bonus to get.

Be wary. There is a little confusion on whether they mean TFTM or the 2007 Bayverse film when they say the Original Transformers. Dang Gen Z not knowing their TF history!

The package said to look for a code on your receipt, but mine was codeless. Curious if I bought mine too early for this promo to be in their system yet.

Technically, the 2007 one was the original "Transformers" film, while the 1986 one was "The Transformers: The Movie". :D

I am currently making copious amounts of screencaps for the wiki, and am dearly loving this movie.

But something bugs me about the the scene at Sector 7 with Whalen, Powell and Burns debating whether to let the Decepticons have access. The long shots of the table have Whalen on the left and Burns on the right with Powell standing behind it, but then the individual shots of Whalen and Burns are from Powell's side of the table which makes it kinda disorientating.
