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."

@  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)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

@  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.

@  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)

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.

I wish they had kept Barricade's original look, with the arms being essentially the full sides of the car and the Decepticon badge for a head with a gold face and all. This version just immediately gets lost amongst all the other G1 car bots.

I appreciate that transmitter thing on Soundwave's left shoulder. It's weird to have this totally new detail on a design that's otherwise G1 Soundwave slightly made of truck.


Are you sure it's not adapted from Machine Wars Soundwave?

I think that's more true of the game model than of the Authentics one. 

 

Spoiler

 

TLK Barricade is a depressingly normal guy and a sad, sad replacement for the unique monster that was 07 Barry. But I don't think he's quite "just another car guy" - he's got a pretty distinctive build and some specific character cues. I just unfortunately don't feel that 07 Barricade really fits into anything anymore; he's very much a product of the first movie and a cast of villains that's like five dudes. 

 

It's a pity that this version of Barricade is the one getting carried forward for now, though. I bet RiD could have had a lot of fun with a take on the 07 version.

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

People talking like these are designs for the new cartoons are going to be disappointed. Be it because there's no guarantee any of these characters will be in the show or because "Wtf?! Why are they cartoony and kiddy in this! What happened to the old art! GRIMLOCK HAS A MOUTH?!"

Time for some of my trademark pedantry: these evergreen designs themselves will indeed not appear in Cyberverse. Rather, Cyberverse uses distinct character models spun off from the base evergreen concept.

I am glad that he's at least using the white helmet and gray crest, rather than the white helmet and red crest.  To me that's the worst of 3 possible options he's usually given.

 

It does cause me some displeasure that Windblade's thighs and jet front follow the T30 figure's rather than the comic or LG color schemes.

I've always liked the original Hasbro Windblade's leg color layouts better than the Takara/comic/RID one, so that's okay by me. Girl robots don't all have to be wearing panties and everybody doesn't have to have upper and lower legs that don't match.

 

(The original Hasbro toy's silver face and makeup are, on the other hand, much worse.)

It's not pedantic. The Cyberverse designs are 90% the evergreen designs, and we're going to be seeing a lot of said designs, whether in their pure form or filtered through a given franchise. We've even seen this with Prime in Rescue Bots Academy. Small details will indeed vary in implementation, but these are the masters off which everyhting else is being struck.

To me, the non-T30 deco makes a nice uniform alternating color pattern from toe to head of "black toes, red shins, black thighs, red waist, black belly, red chest, black headdress".

 

With the T30 deco, instead of "black, red, black, red, black, red, black" that breaks up the color distribution, it's "black, red, red, black, black, red, black" providing too much of the same color in the legs and lower torso.

How do you look at yourself in the mirror with all the wrong, terrible things you are saying? Quality of Ratchet heads is in a bell curve relationship to the quantity of red on them, with a peak at about 60%.

It's science.

Much agreed. The black thighs are just a much better contrast.

 

I don't think I'd actually care too much about the extra red of the panties, because you get the alternating contrast either way and some figures can really benefit from tying the thighs and crotch together, but it's a little odd to pin that quirk on "because girl" considering, I dunno, the entire 1984 lineup of dudebots who have them.
