@  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.

@  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.

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... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

This is very good study in how some things work much better in 2D than 3D and how it's sometimes good to have the sense to adjust for the change...

Honestly I feel like that's described the whole MP line for a while now. Like, yes, it's extremely impressive that they managed to make a toy that transforms from a cartoon accurate robot into a cartoon accurate firetruck/van/ape/etc., but no part of that statement actually implies that the end result is a visually appealing toy.

They keep managing to push it further, though, and I can't tell if that's because the line is actually swinging even more horribly in that direction, or if it's just the fact that successive figures mean old records are gradually and naturally broken by chance. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

People always tell me that NBA players are the greatest collection of individual athletes in the world, and I totally believe it, because they play nearly the whole game and it's a high-tempo sport and it combines running and jumping and physicality, but it turns out that no matter how good they are at doing basketball, I still don't want to watch it.

Faux parts have their place - half of the movie designs wouldn't be possible without - but there's a line, and Masterpiece currently seems to be trying to get as far away from any lines as possible.

 

Also, to be a truly great Transformer, I feel that the transformation itself should be elegant, simple yet smart, and shouldn't involve thirty panels all folding and unfolding in a precise sequence or else the entire thing explodes in a shower of snapped plastic.

He looks really nice.  But all MPM's do.  He definitely doesn't seem to suffer from some of the issues that Optimus and Ironhide do.  But we'll have to see how his transformation goes.

 

He's certainly impressive.  I wonder if he's taller than Ultra Magnus or not?

That has A LOT of paint. But there's something that seems flat/not-Masterpiece about it?

Maybe it needs an ink wash or something. I dunno. It almost ends up looking like a regular toy (again, I acknowledge that there is a lot more paint on it, it just doesn't make itself apparent and/or basic).

I think that's what I like. It looks like a real toy. And man, that design can look nice with the right execution. I'll be interested to see how this trickles down to Studio Series.

Jazz looks nice, but I hope we get some comparisons with HA Jazz who's my favorite version of the character and will be very hard to top IMHO.


Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

These are all pretty great honestly. 

 

I'm starting to think I may have more of the MP-10 mold than the Classic Seeker mold at this rate.

I still really like that Viotech one.

 

After getting the KBB MP10V, though, I'm not sure I can go back to a full-size Masterpiece Prime. The Voyager-size knockoff is just right. Maybe they'll steal some of these color schemes. :D
