@  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)

I didn't even try this time.

8ass X÷ 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)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 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)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

@  Bass X0 : (07 June 2021 - 02:22 PM)

Yes Cybershark, and now no force in the universe can stop us.

@  Cybersnark : (07 June 2021 - 10:03 AM)

Aaaan we're back!

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 07:23 PM)

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 06:42 PM)

test

@  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.

I didn't even think that had to be a hypothesis. It seemed obvious just from the narrative as presented.

 

(Also, doesn't Charlie have a hoodie prior to that?)

 

Look back to earlier in this thread when this had to be explained to others.

Wait, is that video implying that Bumblebee and Blitzwing were already fighting each other in the sky (or maybe in space) right before Bumblebee crash-landed in the Sector Seven training grounds?

 

Also, that Charlie sure sounds more like a boy.

Full list of bonus content for the Bumblebee movie 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray Combo Set - https://www.seibertr...62.php#p2015362
 

Thank you to Paramount Home Media, Seibertron.com received a copy of the Bumblebee movie. Here's a full rundown plus descriptions from yours truly of all of the special features and bonus material included on the Bumblebee 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray set.

BONUS FEATURES ON 4K ULTRA HD COMBO, BLU-RAY COMBO & DIGITAL

  • Sector 7 Archive
    • Agent Burns: Welcome to Sector 7 - brief "recruit deployment" scene with Agent Burns (John Cena) who introduces us to Sector 7 at the Hoover Dam and teases introducing us to NBE-01.
    • Sector 7 Adventures: The Battle at Half Dome - motion comic of the comic book included with this set. Also has a couple extra scenes at the end where we are introduced to NBE-01 Megatron. I'm not a big fan of motion comics so take this for what you will. The level of acting seems similiar to video storybooks intended for young children. My copy included the actual comic as well, which was printed on nice glossy paper, with the cover feeling like it was printed on a nicer card stock (similar to postcards or business cards). Surprisingly, the comic was made by Avalanche Comics Entertainment instead of IDW.
  • Deleted and Extended Scenes
    • Original Opening - a different opening scene shown from Bumblebee's perspective, narrated by Bumblebee, as he's hunted by Agent Burns and friends in the forest. I'm really glad they did not use this as the opening scene. Bumblebee has a bit of a negative attitude in this scene, which does not seem like his normal personality. Kudos for someone catching this and removing this opening scene.
    • Drive to karate class - scene between Charlie and her brother Otis, who was holding onto Charlie's moped while riding on his skateboard. She arrives to her job at the Hot Dog on a Stick at the boardwalk carnival. Charlie's friends talk to her about her being different since her dad died.
    • Birthday present - Charlie's Mom (Sally) and her mom's boyfriend (Ron) present her with two gifts, of which she's not a fan.
    • Car wash and Beetle breakdown - Charlie and her brother Otis give Bumblebee a bath. Later in this scene, Bumblebee breaks down in the middle of an intersection as cars drive by with horns honking.
    • Charlie drops off Mom and Conan - After dropping them off, head to beach scene with Bumblebee practicing his disguise. In this version, he grabs her by the legs to shake off the sand from when he transformed.
    • Decepticons inspect the armory - near finished animated scene featuring Shatter and Dropkick. Dropkick adapts some new weapons from the military vehicles.
    • Drive to Cliff - Scene between Charlie and Memo where he discusses Bumblebee being a Go-Bot. Apparently Go-Bots are actual toys in this universe. Glad they cut out this scene. Much better ways to reference Go-Bots or the rivalry between the two brands back in the 1980s.
    • Sector 7 - couple of Sector 7 agents discussing who made the first machine and the Transformers god. Shatter and Dropkick discuss closing in on their target with Agent Burns.
    • Appliance War - Energon power surge that happened when Bumblebee connected with electrical socket. Dishwasher monster attacks Charlie and Memo, as well as the Fridge, TV and Alarm Clock monsters which were created by the Energon power surge.
  • Outtakes
    • Burn meets Bee - John Cena has a bit of fun when he first sees Bumblebee in forest.
    • War room - John Cena has some fun with the other actors after he answers the red phone and "pretends" to talk to the President.
    • There's a door in my way - Agent Burns talks about the Facts of Life to Simmons and that it's OK if he opens up to him. Has secret crush on Natalie. Guy that is supposed to blow up the door has wires tangled. Kind of wish they had left this in, sort of funny watching how long it takes the guy to untangle the wires. LOL.
    • Charlie in trash - scene at the tower toward end of movie. Bumblebee versus Dropkick. Dropkick's missile hits the dumpster Charlie is hiding in and it doesn't go off. She states "well, that didn't work" and then it goes off.
    • Saved the world - Memo and Agent Burns different takes with their conversation at the end after Memo arrives after battle.
  • Bee Vision: The Transformers robots of Cybertron - I liked most of the bonus features on this set, but found this one to be disappointing. I get what they were trying to do here by having a profile screen show up as new Transformers characters are shown during the Cybertron battle scenes, but there are some inconsistencies. Not all of the characters get their bio screen, or they get it later instead of when they first show up (such as Soundwave and Shockwave). While I like that the bio screens list the character's alt mode, I don't like that it looks like someone just went to a Wikipedia page and happened to see that Arcee also turned into a spider at one point (courtesy of BotCon) or that Wheeljack turned into a Ford Mustang (courtesy of the Alternators line). Those transformations are small fictional offshots from the main storyline and shouldn't have been listed. It struck me as ill-informed. Some fans might like the inclusion of these one-off alt-modes as a nods to where these characters have been, but it seems really out of place in the movie universe. It's also inconsistent that it doesn't mention other alt forms that Starscream has taken if they are going to go that route. Wish they had just kept it to their current alt forms (and/or their movie universe alt forms).
  • Bringing Bumblebee to the Big Screen (featurettes)
    • The Story of Bumblebee - featurette about the story direction of Bumblebee, his character, etc, told through various Producers and people who worked on the movie
    • The Stars Align - featurette about casting Hailee Steinfeld and John Cena for lead roles of Charlie Watson and Agent Burns respectively.
    • Bumblebee Goes Back to G1 - artists discussing using G1 as source material or launching point for recreating these characters in the "real" world. Also discuss animating Bumblebee, complexity, expressions, the Decepticons Blitzwing, Shatter, and Dropkick, and so on. There is NO discussion about Blitzwing's similarties to Starscream.
    • Back to the Beetle - behind the scenes look at Bumblebee as a Beetle, total of 8 Volkswagen Beetles available for use in movie including 1 electric Beetle that they custom built. Interesting look at the magic of Hollywood doing its thing with Bumblebee.
    • California Cruisin' Down Memory Lane - featurette with primary focus about recreating that 1980s look with the house, town, sets, cars, making Charlie's look stand out from other characters, location scouting, Santa Cruz boardwalk set, San Francisco bridge, redwood forest, showing off California, etc.

I also wonder when that Rumble design will filter down into a toy. We're going to get a Rumble with vestigial detail of other movie guys and we're going to have to live with it.

Wonder why they're not showing the Megatron deleted scene, is it so that no one can go "ah so it isn't a reboot, and transformers 2007 is after this!"

Which, if they have a bonus feature hinting at Megatron in the dam, then surely not right? And the comic has Megatron on ice so...

But the comic also has a weird Frankenstein Rumble so what do I know. Nothing.
