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.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

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)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:00 AM)

Even writing them generally in katakana is a consistent treatment, and gives someone learning the language a general expected approach. I'd say the anecdotal frustration with English by those learning it compared to learning other languages as a second language is a demonstration that this sort of consistency and organization was not a valued thing in the past few centuries of the language's development.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

Frankly, it just sounds like you think other languages seem a certain way because you don't look into them all that much.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

It's pretty pervasive in Japanese as well, with how these feature into everyday speech.. And I don't know what you even mean by "deep", since writing them in a particular character set basically calls attention to not just their derivative nature, but their relative recency as well.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 12:25 AM)

Indeed, every language has those artifacts if you examine deeply enough, but in English they're not deep, and they're pervasive.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:56 PM)

like Japanese using three different script types together, and more recent word borrowings tend to be in katakana.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:51 PM)

I don't know what you mean by "cohesively". Borrowings are probably obvious if you know what to look for.

One does wonder if a "Classic" Movie line under a non-Warden regime might be more Classics and less CW/TR/POTP - I could certainly go for movie-style toys of movie guys that still aren't just attempts to recreate their movie models.

That just sounds weird since a movie line would inherently point to the movies even more directly than any Generations line points to the G1 cartoon.

Yeah, Gens is uniquely positioned to play with existing characters and designs without being married to them, where that really isn't the purpose of a line like this. Not to say that a Movie Exleashuation sort of thing couldn't be interesting in its own right, but I wouldn't particularly expect it even from the previous team.

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

So, Stinger's probably the AOE release again.

Could be ANY of the Bumblebee molds again but I think we'll see something recent.

Ratchet is either the ROTF or DOTM Deluxe; the latter is the superior one so I hope that's it.

Crowbar... maybe a Berzerker repaint?

Optimus & Starscream both have multiple Voyager molds to choose from.

and Leader Grimlock, again- know what that one is.

Is it possible Blackout is the ONLY new mold in this lineup???

Nope, because this dovetails with the Voyager Megatron and Brawl we know to be new molds. (Merged.)

Weren't they all new figures based on what we could see from the leaks?

 

I know the Voyagers and Leaders were at least.

Yeah, leader Grimlock was pretty clearly a new mold in the image from The Leak too. Starscream and Optimus also seemed new, but it's hard to tell what's an actual toy among all the stand-in images. It'd make sense considering the other two voyagers, though.

 

Either way, exciting news! After the early worries that the line might not actually happen, it's nice to see some news trickling out.

I'm still pretty satisfied with the first movie's Leader Brawl mold, so this new one will have to be pretty darn impressive to get me to want it.


Same here. I snagged one at a garage sale this summer for 10 bucks, only missing one arm blade. He's packs a lot of value at that price that a modern voyager can't really match.

Yeah, this isn't some random Takara redeco stuff, this is the main movie line for 2018. Expect mostly new moulds, and certainly nothing from before DOTM.

DOTM moulds may not even be viable in Hasbro mass-retail any more - didn't the exclusive TLK redeco of DOTM Optimus have an inflated RRP relative to regular TLK Voyagers?

Crowbar will almost certainly be Berserker with a new head, though. I mean, he's a modern-budget toy of exactly Crowbar with Crowbar's altmode. It would be insane for him to be a new mold unless it's really one intended for Dreadbot, and I think it's more likely Crowbar is in the line at all because Berserker exists.

Berserker's a bit of a shellformer, so I could see him getting, like, a new torso/shoulders/forearms as well. But there's no way he's not using Berserker as a base.
