"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things.

@  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.)

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.

@  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.

@  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"

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  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.

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

2016 through to 2017: Doctor Strange
2017: Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War
 

 

 

...there's a couple things wrong there.

 

First off, Black Panther was implied to take place very shortly after the events of Civil War, so it had to happen in 2016. Second, no listing for Ant Man and the Wasp, though that's comparatively minor - it has to take place at roughly the same time as Infinity War.

And that's pretty much why they shouldn't have published an official timeline. Just like the comics, inconsistencies like that are going to keep popping up.

The only timeline you need is that the events of the movies generally happened in release order. (Yes, there's Captains America and Marvel, but the former had an epilogue in the present, and I'm fairly confident the latter will too.) It's like actual history, focus on what's happening, don't get wrapped up in the dates.

I'm actually okay with the events of Doctor Strange overlapping with the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming. It's pretty much accepted that the former took place over several months, after all.

So rewatching Infinity War in prep for Endgame, one thing bugs me.

How did Thor know the Time Stone was on Earth? Its true he crossed paths with Dr. Strange during Ragnarok but I doubt Doc would just up and tell Thor what hes got. And even if Thor knows what the Eye of Agamotto was why would he say its safe with the Avengers? Could be hes generalized it as being on Earth near them would safeguard it enough but anyway you shake it, it just seems like Thor shouldnt know anything about the Time Stones location.

Maybe it's like how Thanos sent Gamora to find the location of the Power and Soul stones. She tracked down the Power stone to Guardians 1 movie but we never knew how she found out where the Soul stone is.

Perhaps one of the children or agents of Thanos got the information that an earth guy has claimed the Eye of Agamotto then.

Here's my theory. Thor spent the time between the end of Age of Ultron and the start of Ragnarok traveling the Nine Realms and seeking out information related to the Infinity Stones. It's very likely that he went to at least one library or archive, either in Asgard or in a friendly realm, and found information regarding the Time Stone and the Eye of Agamotto. He sees Dr. Strange wearing it, puts two and two together, and simply doesn't bring it up because he's got bigger priorities at the time.

 

Reasonably simple, doesn't require a lot of assumptions. Occam would approve.

I recall a scene where she tells Nebula that she found a map to the soul stone and destroyed it after memorizing the location.
