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 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)

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.

@  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.

This is a thread to collect all deep discounts, limited-time offers, and promotionals on Transformers items that might come up. These tend to get sprinkled into lots of different places and folks have been thinking it's a good idea to have a collected thread of what's up right now.

Going to start things off with this fairly incredible item dropped our way by NightViper:


He also mentioned that the newer assortment including Silverback weren't in the system and didn't ring up properly.

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

To be fair, though, I'm dumbstruck at that $1.50. That's the price of a goddamn candy bar.

Your mileage may vary, but my local Walmart also has:

 

Rescue Bots Griffin Rock Firehouse Headquarters - $9

RID Legions - $3

RID Three-Step Changers - $9

Combiner Wars (and likely Titans Return) Leader Class - $21

Aussies can pop into Big W for 20% off all toys until... August 16 I think? Yes. https://www.bigw.com.au/

 

They're rarely ahead of the curve in terms of TF waves but they tend to have a decent range of vaguely stale Generations, movie and RID. I don't think they're super into Rescue Bots but many stores here aren't. 

 

Only place I've seen Broadside, who appeared when the movie hit.

I'm not sure if this is accurate as it seems a bit illogical, but the Club site has 'Iacon Cybertron Most Wanted' box sets advertised for $166.40, when they used to be over 400 bucks.  Thing is, the loose set is going for $309, hence my skepticism.

Noting that this isn't universal. My Wal-Mart had Titan Masters on sale but for $4 instead of $2.50

This week. Sucks that some new stuff came in but not what I wanted so I had to pass.

Are you ordering figures/toys? You probably don't want those in a padded envelope.

If you're ordering comics, that option is fine for them. But maybe call in the order over phone and see if you can get a cheaper ship option - the software on the site doesn't like to calculate small weights like that.

The Last Knight Legion Class (Series 1) are on clearance for $5 and Tiny Titans (Series 1) are now $1.50 at Walmart...I suppose this doesn't bode well for the prospects of them stocking Series 2 of either line in the future.   :(
