'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I shot the sheriff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 July 2020 - 04:23 PM)

the stormtroopers shot first

@  Paladin : (14 July 2020 - 06:18 AM)

the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

"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.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 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)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲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.

At present, we have Sunstreaker, Targetmaster Hot Rodimus, Dinobot, Cassettebots vs Cassettetrons, Convoy 7-11 Ver., and Barricade on the horizon. After the currently confirmed releases, who do you hope will be the next Masterpiece figure? Whether your wish is realistic or unrealistic, sound off here!

A complete list of all Masterpiece figures can be found at the TFWiki.

I've always figured the only reason we haven't gotten Jazz yet is licensing. That said, I also feel we're long overdue for another mini-bot. Probably Gears or Brawn, if I had to bet. Cliffjumper would be there too, but without a license for Jazz, he's unlikely too.

I really want some 1986 Decepticons. Well mainly just Cyclonus and Scourge. Imagine how great those designs would look as Masterpiece figures. Cyclonus would be huge too.

I imagine Trailbreaker and Hoist are on the horizon.

Kup is also highly desired.

*Though they aren't happening ever, since MPs are a Takara thing.

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.

Supposedly Ironhide, Starscream and VW Bumblebee are the next MPMs. All of those sound fine, none of them super-excites me. (Starscream would, but...how can he possibly be better than the Leader? I don't know if I want to trade "jet mode is less fat" for "is less fun to play with".)

 

I really want a Bonecrusher.

Galvatron has ranked high in Japanese consumer polls, yes? I imagine he must be on Takara's pipeline.

 

I really want some post-86 MPs. Nightbeat/Minerva, and the other Headmaster Juniors. The Masterforce Pretenders. Bludgeon and Thunderwing*.

*Though they aren't happening ever, since MPs are a Takara thing.

 

Y'know if Takara ever made a Masterpiece Black Shadow, modeled directly from the Victory anime, I wonder how such a mold would do as Thunderwing.

Well, they wouldn't do that, because Black Shadow was a one-episode wonder that nobody in Japan cares about.
But with some retooling it'd do fine, though it wouldn't match his Marvel alternate mode.

Yeah, Black Shadow is probably the second to last guy from Victory they'd make. Thunderwing as Thunderwing probably has a better chance.

I think third-to-last, because he and Blue Bacchus at least had previous toys, unlike Deathcobra. (We're counting Deathcobra, right?)

 

(Actually, like 3/4 of the guys from Victory are combiners, so maybe Black Shadow's chances aren't comparatively that bad after all...)

If Takara tried making a Masterpiece Battle Convoy/Black Convoy, would people just reject it in favor of the original G2 mold?

Yeah, I'm sure a new one would manage to do probably everything the first one did with better sculpting and articulation.

The second LG Black Convoy was well received.

So I imagine a Masterpiece would be too.

My dream MP: Red G2 Hubcap, since it was my first Transformer. I actually think it's very slightly possible, if only because I could see them doing regular Hubcap as a retool of Cliffjumper, if they ever did him, and another repaint to cash in on the retooled mold could follow.
