Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

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)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

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.

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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  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.

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

That's kind of interesting.

 

Netflix has been enjoying the success of comic book adaptations lately with their own corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the company is making its ties to the comic book world even deeper. The streaming TV giant just acquired its very own comic book company with its purchase of Millarworld.

 

The comic book company is run by Lucy and Mark Millar, the latter of whom you may know as the writer of Marvel’s Old Man Logan and Civil War—which Netflix is happy to point out have both recently served as inspiration for successful movies—as well as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Wanted. Though all those have already seen adaptations, there’s plenty more material for Netflix to mine at Millarworld, which they plan to do as Netflix continues to bolster its original content, along with creating brand new properties.

 

Millar’s understandably thrilled with the deal, saying, “This is only the third time in history a major comic book company has been purchased at this level. I’m so in love with what Netflix is doing and excited by their plans. Netflix is the future and Millarworld couldn’t have a better home.” Under the acquisition, Netflix is planning to leverage the Millarworld comics into “films, series and kids’ shows,” as well as fostering the continued creation of original comics.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

How do you get to this leap in logic?

 

Kingsman made $414 million on 81 million budget.  Kickass made $96 million on 30 million.  Wanted made $341 million on 75 million.  That's not even touching Logan's $606 million or Civil War's 1.1 billion which has other factors going for it but is still based on adapting Millar work.

 

Dislike his comics all you want, the movies that are made off them are proven bank.

So, what you're saying is that all the good work from Millarworld is already produced or licensed? Kingsman, Kickass, and Wanted have all been made and rights transferred. Superior, Jupiter's Legacy, Nemisis, Starlight and Super Crooks have all been optioned but not made. The only one that's left, not licensed, AND that has real mass appeal potential is ChronoNauts IMO. Best guess? A lot of the deals are about to expire and they're hoping the content doesn't go into production, so they can put them into turnaround and get some quick content?

 

You see the corporate turn on Netflix is already happening. They hold too much caché and you're going to see more and more moves like Disney's, in the end leaving Netflix as the home for crappy VOD cinematic shovel-ware and their own content, which is going to dry out as the subscribers do with quality content. There's going to be a push and pull as more and more services start launching as studios realize that serving content isn't as hard as it once was.

The comics that Kingsman and Wanted are based on are the worst thing ive ever read...wanted was terrible as a movie....and Kingsman, thankfully is FUN as a movie. But i cant lie and say that Kick-Ass and the whole RLSH scene havent had a huge impact on my life.

 

Good for Millar..when he's on, he's awesome. But when he's off...look out.

You come with open arms to drag me down

I did some research. The only Millarworld titles that haven’t been optioned are Reborn and The Unfunnies, neither of which seem to have much widespread commercial appeal. Both could work in animation, but I don't think that's why Netflix courted this bedfellow. I can't find any of the option projects entering turnaround (or even getting close to reverting), so this is more of a "acqui-hire" than a real company acquisition. Millar does consistently put out new franchise material that could (usually) be translated to other mediums and this will give Netflix the first right of refusal for those projects, as well as owning the rights to anything that might eventually revert back to the company. Netflix hasn't disclosed the terms, so I'm willing to bet this was a relatively small deal, but Netflix could see Millar as the next Stan Lee and wants to get in while the getting is good, especially given their high-profile breakup with Disney.

Netflix would have probably been better served trying to cut a deal with Image.  Black Science and most of Remender's work would adapt very nicely to Netflix's production style.

 

So, what you're saying is that all the good work from Millarworld is already produced or licensed? Kingsman, Kickass, and Wanted have all been made and rights transferred. Superior, Jupiter's Legacy, Nemisis, Starlight and Super Crooks have all been optioned but not made.

Chrononauts was licensed as it was being written.  I otherwise agree.
