"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. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

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.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  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."

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.

@  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.

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  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)

@  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?

They're calling the Decoy Armors "Pretender Suits" so it's not 100% in lockstep.

One thing to consider about Legends and it possibly being finished, is the line has taken several months breaks before. Might be all done, but something to consider.

Dinobots could be a box set under PotP, or a box set under UW. Either of those things is a realistic possibility. But Starscream is a notable omission in this lineup either way, because he wouldn't go in any box. Did they just opt not to pick him up because he's terrible?

Isn't it "Decoy Suit"?

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

Well wave 1 for one line might not be wave 1 for the other company.

But when they're identical, then it starts to make less sense if a particular figure is omitted.

When I say identical, I mean the figures not the line up.

However long has Takara had this minimum alteration release in the works? If Star Saber is still getting a Power of the Primes toy as we suspect, but then if Takara is going to release all non-combiner set figures in Hasbro's style in a new, non-Legends line, then Star Saber's buildup in the Legends storyline comes to nothing.

Its possible Takara didnt want to double dip since they just did a Combiner Compatible Starscream in UW.

They might want to release Elita-1 and the other female Autobots or remold him into Leozack for Liokaiser.

Because I've seen debated it elsewhere...Hasbro's renders for Slash are inconsistent with themselves/the final product. 

 

The robot mode render shows completely clear shoulders (other than the gold paint underneath), making it look as though Takara will be adding silver paint. The render is wrong though, and Hasbro's final figure does have that same silver paint from the Takara stock photo.

Some of these comparisons aren't quite right, due to him using renders for some of them.

 

Slash's shoulders are like the Takara one on the Hasbro version (the render's are different).

As a general rule, Takara makes everybody else into Starscream, not vice-versa.

Personally, I'm disappointed that we don't get to see Takara's take on the characters, even if there were only deco differences. Variety is the spice of life, after all.

 

I'll bust a gut if Sakamoto does a web comic for the line, though.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

It is also possible to enjoy combined game with DX & Voyager class figures which will be released in the future!

So what they're saying is, some of the Deluxe and Voyager characters enjoy Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Yeah, IDW did a massive Combiner Wars thing, then hinted that Titans Return might be a thing. I'm counting on token reference if anything for Potpie. Vs. a dedicated hypothetical comic strip by Sakamoto, which is not a book, but is still a pretty substantial thing.

I mean, it won't be "little guys in Suits We've Already Seen", but IDW's undoubtedly-upcoming Thirteen storyline will probably take some cues from the toy story. And I wouldn't be surprised if Starscream and/or Elita uses the Enigma on themselves to do some fighting.
