Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

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)

@  ▲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 XD

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 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)

A movie to why Han used "parsec" like it measured time and not distance.


Because he was spewing bantha poodu to try and pull the wool over the eyes of a kid and an old geezer. I was five the first time I saw that scene and even I caught that everyone in the vicinity just rolled their eyes and sighed and Han deflated a little.

I think only the remaining Die Hard fans will go and see the first movie of that, but many fans are likely to boycott it because there is very little exictement for Star Wars currently and I doult that will get better any time soon.

Well I think those people who have a huge problem with him and TLJ won't see his SW films. But I'm guessing that isn't a lot of people honestly.

I'm interested in seeing what he does, since TLJ is one of the better SW films.

Can't wait. Last Jedi ruled and the same spirit but with an all new cast and plot should be amazing.

I think that The Last Jedi is a very bold film, but I'm not sure it really worked for me.And I don't have any experience with Johnson outside of it, so the fact he's making a trilogy isn't really that much of a draw for me.

I've also decided that I'm not going to see any Star wars films after Rise of Skywalker.


I sure wish I hadn't misspelt my username.....

It sure is encouraging how the people who were announced to lead the new trilogies (RJ and the two GoT writers) have since created, shall we say, divisive works...


I wish we had any idea as to what these movies were about. We know what the various Disney+ series are about, but the next batch of films are just "more Star Wars." In a time were there is perhaps too much Star Wars.

I have very little interest in a SW film by the GoT guys. They proved that they can't really run a show unless a great writer is writing the script and dialogue, and the ending will be awful. I could see myself skipping those movies. I never saw Toy Story 4. At some point you do draw away from things.

I really have no interest in general at this point. I already thought the ST was not needed, lost me by the direction it took and now they're making more with seemingly no direction.

 

Star Wars isn't the MCU. It can't keep cranking out movies, especially with no creative vision. Say what you will about the prequels but they had a point to existing. And bar Dave Filoni I don't even feel anyone now calling the shots even understands the tone of Star Wars. For crying out loud, I don't adore Rebels but it's final season actually managed to pay respect to the pre and post Lucas eras whilst expanding the story further. How have the movies not managed that?

Solo did lose money. High budget and low returns. TLJ and TFA made a ton of money. So did Rogue One.

I believe these are domestic grosses. SW isn't huge in some other big markets like China.

Masses of unsold merchandise.

The 'movie a year' plan being scrapped because audiences simply weren't interested/don't like direction Disney is going.

Resistance ending at season 2.

Galaxy's Edge not being the mega hit that was expected.

 

Oh yeah, Star Wars is doing fine right now. Nothing to worry about. I'm sure stuff like going back to the unfinished Clone Wars episodes and asking Ewan to do a PT/OT Obi-Wan bridge series only confirms that people are loving the Disney era setting and want more...oh wait.

As someone that loves pretty much all Star Wars stuff, Solo looked pretty lame. I think myself, and many others just had no interest in a young Han Solo movie, with a non Harrison Ford solo, who lacked charisma, telling a completely un needed story. The movie was ok, just in no way compelling.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

A lot of reviews pointed out the problem with Solo- you can't give Han an origin movie because A New Hope IS his origin movie. It's the start of the significant turn in his life when he became someone of note. Going back and trying to make that part of him beforehand doesn't really fit.

I liked it and hope that they continue the story in some fashion. I do think it was unnecessary, but now that we're here why not finish it.

Also Val was way too cool to only be in the film for 5 minutes.

I think it's stupid to have Maul leading another powerful crime syndicate when on TV he'd done that and lost it and Rebels cast him as being a loner who was trying to get revenge. Saying he somehow gained and then lost another crime syndicate is convoluted.
