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.

@  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)

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".

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"

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

I am not extremely confident that those Megatron legs are transformed completely, and so I think he might end up squatter.  I mean, he's still MASSIVE, but Optimus shouldn't be, like, waist height with him.

I always thought Movie Megatron and Optimus were generally the same size. But apparently the official heights are 28’ for Optimus and 35’ for Megatron? Even still, I think the height difference here is still too much, so hopefully you’re right about the legs collapsing a bit.

But yeah, it’s still just really weird (and impressive) to see a Voyager with so much bulk. It’s really cool to see Hasbro pushing the fact that the budget is per wave instead of per figure, which I assume is the explanation for how this is possible.

My understanding is that movie Megatron is a little bigger than Optimus, but not by a super lot.  

 

Though the ROTF forest battle, in an extremely rare moment of them both standing upright next to each other on the same plane.... they seem to be roughly the same size, i dunno.

I'm extremely cross at anything that makes me want that Megatron after I sprang for the Movie The Best version because I wanted that mold in Not A Stupid Deep Green.

So, I'm cross about this. Either because he's been designed to scale with Starscream and Blackindor, or just because he's good value for money.

I'm also cross about how rubbish that Voyager Optimus looks but I'm still gonna get it to ride Grimlock (even though he's not the design that rides Grimlock SO CROSS)

Megatron always came off as quite a bit thicker and a bit taller than Prime in the films.

Several TFW2005 members have confirmed that they found Thundercracker at their local TRU, so he's definitely out there in the wild.

Just got mine a little while ago. They said the street date was actually sometime in April, but they sold it to me anyway. Presumably on account of my winning, potato-like personality.

I think Optimus' placement just a little bit further back than the other two is dramatically exaggerating the height difference - remember the original pictures of the Scorns together?

 

Huh. So I found pretty good comparison pictures, and they are closer to the same height, but...Megatron's still a lot more larger than I expected.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

That's too bad. Well, instead of my stealing Snakas' bandwidth, you can find both of them there, albeit in separate posts. The Prime one is fairly old at this point. Both pictures show clear front views of these two standing on Optimus' backdrop.

 

EDIT: Here they are. Prime is from a slightly higher angle than Megs, so he's going to look a little shorter, but a comparison between where their heads are compared to the backdrop is illuminating.

8 eyes and 8 arms (and 2 legs...). He's basically the movie version of an RiD2015 Decepticon and I love it.

I don't like how monochrome it is, but otherwise, I have always loved movie Jazz's design. It's, like, a perfect modernisation of the classic character.

 

I concur; I'm tempted to get one for myself.

He's talking about his belly detailing, that can sorta be interpreted as insect-like legs, I guess. Each "leg" ends in a little spike, it's what's painted copper on Nitro, but Thundercracker leaves the spiky tip black on the bottommost pair. But really the gray paint on the tips of the top two pairs makes them blend in with his belly even more than having them pure black would.

No, I just sucked at getting my point across. Basically: He has a spider head and his belly claws could be considered two extra arms and I like it, even if yeah, I'm probably stretching about the belly claws
