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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲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)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  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)

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.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 July 2020 - 03:14 PM)

Convert him to Maple Syrup.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 03:10 PM)

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 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 like the idea of a show that's largely on Cybertron. I think I had convinced myself it could be something way weirder, but if done right Cybertron should be plenty weird.

"Hi, I'm Windblade! I'm here to restore your meeeeemory!"

 

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SEASON-LONG STORY ARCS

Kids of today don't like story arcs. :D

 

The average comedy cartoon nowadays has better continuity than what the 80s had to offer. In the action genre. 

 

I wouldn't take the "18 episodes" number as something unusual either, as someone that's kept an eye on Hasbro's sales sheets they often do have some damned weird arbitrary numbers, even on seasons of shows that actualy had the usual 13 or 26 episode order. Those numbers seem to refer more to how many episodes they plan to have ready to deliver to media channels that bought airing rights by that time frame than how many they're actualy making.

 

But also Hasbro is the same company that made a 6 episode season of a cartoon and gave it around the same budget as a 13 episode season so god knows they're not beyond REALLY doing some crazy numbers for no particular reason, not even to save money.

 

Who mentioned 80's shows?! I was just spoofing the "Kids today" BS claims.

What is the status of Hasbro's relationship with Cartoon Network these days? Should we expect that Cyberverse will air in the U.S. on CN as with Robots in Disguise or is a shake-up in order?

Hasbro has said they plan to get their stuff on Netflix and Itunes and etc. faster than in the past this upcoming year. They're aware that Cable TV can be shaky.

 

Now Channel-wise, we have no confirmation, but this happened a few months ago

 

http://newsroom.hasb...leaseid=1047074

 

Paramount is owned by Viacom, whose major kid-channel is Nickelodeon, so it's possible, if not probable, that Cyberverse might air there.

The show is most likely to resemble the newer show that was made by the same studio and that it shares writing staff with than the one made 10 years ago by different people from a different studio aimed at a different market of kids. So nah. Pack your things if you're here for TFA's revival.

This was noted by Boomhauer in the RBA thread in relation to voice cast stuff, but I'm noting it here too for the character reveal:

 

Lianne Marie Dobbs posted on her instagram about doing a recording session for "Slipstream, the female Decepticon in charge of the Seekers."

This appeals to me for the sole reason that "Slipstream in a leadership position with Starscream as a pissy subordinate who thinks he should have her job" has long been part of my Transformers series "pitch".

Worth nothing that show staff has mentioned they're working on Season 2 pre-production right now, so have a lil patience if you're excited for her being in something else! She might be a season 2 character that just got cast.

The Slipstream thing is interesting on its own merits, but also leads me to think this is set after RID, when Starscream is indisposed. I certainly hope so; I want to keep things moving into the future.

What's this talk about getting things on Netflix sooner? My son has been asking me about Combiner Force once a week for like 6 months now.

Considering there's a pile of Starscream in Wave 1 and only evidence for Slipstream in Season 2, I think that's an optimistic reading.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Is it bad of me to realize that this may be the first time since Robots in Disguise where the Japanese voice actors will get paid more than the American?

 

Of course, that's if TakaraTomy even bothers bringing it over.

Oh it's like Steven Universe all over again.

So, we're going to get 30 episodes of Bumblebee wandering around Cybertron talking to random bots and 5 episodes of actual interesting plot.

 

 

Bumblebee will only reach to Optimus's hip in one scene, then in the next he'll be as tall as his boot and using an earlier character design.
