WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

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.

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)

I feel this series is either head down the Transformers Animated route with most fans initial hatred being replaced  by the fun it brings, or it'll be a garbage fire of trying to be hip and new and fail the franchise completely. There is probably a middle ground between but knowing the internet it'll be one way or the other.

 

Looking back it's not easy for me to call any of the cartoons bad so far. The 87 series was really goofy and toy shilling but was always fun, until the grimdark red skies episodes and even than I enjoyed the show for trying something new after years of the rinse, wash, and repeat of Turtles stopping Shredder and Krang from using the Technodrome.

 

The 2003 series seems like the closest we'll get to the classic comics in some ways and still has the best Shredder in Ch'rell. Things may have jumped the shark later on with everything past the Mystic Ninja season, but even then the tone of the series always kept about the same regardless.

 

The 2012 series had fun with the old while bringing in it's new touches. April got a much better role than ever before in the series, and Karai's backstory was a great touch to bring more into the series. But sometimes I think they went a bit far on their gross out moments for a kids show. And while I love the character as it played out through the series, Ice Cream Kitty? Who came up with some of these ideas :D But I hate to say it but it also probably had the best overall cast, but considering the multiple legacy cameos, guest stars of note and more it's hard to give the older series a hard time about it.

 

That gets me thinking. So far I'm not really enthused about Rise's cast. But on that note which version of each main character is your favorite.

 

Leo - While I do really like all of the 2012 series actors, I believe 2003's Michael Sinterniklaas had the best overall. These days Cam Clarke's Leo voice is too high pitch for me, and the rotation between Biggs to Green while not bad never seemed as good as the Leo in the 2003 series.

 

Raph - Sean clinches this one. Love Rob Paulsen but Raph was never really the tough guy in the old cartoon and while Greg Abbey did pretty good in the 2003 series, he always went a bit too much on the accent, which granted they live in New York, but I hate stereotypical accents. Sean Laid off it mostly and was a damn good Raph. The Tough guy that cared more than he let on.

 

Donny - Man it's probably a tie between Paulsen's April crushing and Sam Riegel's brain of brains. Really it's tough because Donny has always been my favorite. I like Riegel's voice much better but he rarely showed more than being the brainy one, while Paulsen's higher pitched voice grates on me a bit but got more to do than be the tech guy this time. Being both only tech guy and the high pitched voice rules out Barry immediately.

 

Mikey - Gotta go with Cipes. I love all three Mikeys but Cipes was the balance between the 80's and 2003 version to me and I think he pulled it off the best.

 

Splinter - Hoon Lee hands down. Love all three versions of cartoon Splinter but Hoon had the best story behind him and sounded the most natrual. 80's Splinter was mostly the chill mentor most of the time, and the 2003 series tried too hard making him sound old. Sadly I think Bauza maybe heading down the same way as the 2003 series.

 

April - While I do love Mae Whitman's April, I got to go with Veronica Taylor's 2003 April. While mostly being the Turtles Girl in the Chair most of the time, she still was a pretty strong character most of the time. That and I liked the relationship between her and Casey more here.

 

Casey - right off the bat 80's Casey is written off with only being a minor recurring nutball. That being said, while I do like the character in the 2003 series more, 2012's Josh Peck wasn't trying so hard to sound like a New Yorker.

 

And Shredder - It's tough to choose. but 2003 Shredders voice sounds so menacing I gotta go with Scott Rayow between all his Shredder appearances in the series. I like Kevin Michael Richardson and he does so well in 2012's series but between Shredders downfall in the later seasons and hearing his voice everywhere else in other series sounding so similar it sometimes blurs characters together for me. But gotta give props at least to James Avery. May not of been a great villainous Shredder but he was always a gret part of a comedy routine.

I dig the new designs. While they'll definitely take getting used to after 5 years of the 2012 CGI, they seem wild and dynamic and there's some clever character ideas that I'm excited to see executed.

The "Wolverine and the X-Men"-ish "we made the badass rebel guy the leader" is the weirdest thing about this to me, but there's tons of story potential in that and I hope to see it done.

Splinter I actually like, there's a bit of a Shifu vibe to him this way.

Most of all I enjoy the impotent fan wailing at designs that aren't The 80s All Over Again.

Seen the images of the new looks to the turtles and I'm not impressed, it looks like Turtles is going the way a lot of modern cartoon shows are going, to deep into the goofy look. I tried the 2012 series but after a couple of eps, I pretty much gave up on it, I felt like the show lost the mojo of the 2003 series which made it great, it seems to try and recreate that feel but failed as they added in bad humour that felt forced instead of natural, not to mention I didn't like the look of the Shedder in it, the 2003 verison really felt like a credible threat to the turtles, plus kind of scary creepy with the full body armour thing and those red eyes, where's the other cartoon ones, nowhere near as intimidating, plus the whole alien thing made the charater more intersting to me, back in the 2003 series, I never could really get into the original TV series when it was on TV, aside from the fact I never knew what time of day it was on, when I saw some of the later eps of the show, fighting against that alien dude (not Krang), things just felt off, yet I was never able to really put my finger on it and mind you I never knew about the comics until sometime after the 2003 show appeared and I thought it was the same show that been on TV when I was younger.

 

Anyway, regards to this modern series coming, I'll give it a shot but I got this feeling I'll end up not bothering to watch it.

Toy reveals are up for Rise.... ow, just ow.

Besides not translating to 3 dimensions well at all we got a few more characters revealed.

April comes with a weird cat or chihuahua called Mayhem

An Origami Ninja which looks to be the basic foot soldier disposable henchman

And Meat Sweats......looks like a psycho butcher mutated into a giant pig man with a tenderizer hammer with a bone for a handle.

As far as the turtles themselves Raph’s proportions are not good, and Splinter is so short and stubby. All the turtles weapons seem to be using the glowing energy effects seen in the artwork except Leo’s one big sword. Even April’s baseball bat has the green energy effect.

April is also without the glasses she was seen with in the artwork.

So is April wielding some sort of magical bat or.. i dunno what. The art kinda makes it look like shes causally floating while leaning back.

 

This is an.. odd departure from the norm.

I agree with Randy. This looks fun so I'm going to give it a go.

 

Had I been dissuaded by the initial pictures/first glace of Animated, I would have missed out on some of my favorite TF fiction of all time.

Nothing wrong with being different. We have three TMNT series already that all have their strengths and weaknesses. But I just don't want a turn like CN did to Teen Titans, Powerpuff Girls and somewhat Ben 10 (more just the animation on Ben)

Those suck and so will this.
