@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

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.

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)

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.

@  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

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  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)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

Rexy ending up straight into a zoo is basically a dino looking for a job in it. Only lacked a little curriculum vitae folder hanging on her tiny arms:

 

"I have  previous experience as a display animal on two parks. As one of the main attractions I made my previous employers several gazillion dollars (Exact amount unknown I did not work on accounting, was paid on goats),  successfully kept  dangerous predators from killing innocent humans three times. Can eat goats"


A persistent predator is always alert!awake! focused! and Zzzz.....

Whew. Tho I don't recall the mosasaur lunging or anything. That scene alone was SCARY! If the Meg Megalodon movie makes a ton, they can totally spin off a mosasaurus movie. Maybe have an diver version of Chris Pratt to star. Points if it's Jason Momoa.

If the dinos can switch sexes because they use frog DNA, they could easily have the next movie say they can also reproduce through parthenogenesis because they have lizard or snake DNA. Or they always did and it was new to science, like dilophosaur venom.

It was so obvious that they're trying to MCU-nify the JP franchise. Blue has an ORIGIN! And FEELINGS! And there's a post-credits scene! And supporting cast members who might actually come back!

Spoiler


Also, random point: the old babysitter was played by Charlie Chaplin's daughter.


I'd say the stomache churning butality is still there, its just aimed at the poor dinos this time.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

It is really interesting what they have done with Wu. His role is small in Jurassic Park, but he seems like this bright, clever young scientists. The kind no one minds having around. While not exactly being the villain in 4 and 5 (despite some guilt), he is SUPER creepy.

So.... that was kinda schlocky.I mean, haha of course it's Jurassic Park, but the others felt like they all had a bit more to them while this one's just very cliche evil corporations abusing nature. I dunno, we used to get interesting bits like Grant bonding with the kids over Brachiosaurs, or the villain being merely crippled by Mama T. rex so Jr can learn to hunt -- here we got a theropod trying to eat people while it's raining lava. Ehhh...

 

Literally unleashing dinosaurs (and genetic engineering as a whole) unto the world is pretty neat. Too bad it's basically just trailer/sequel bait.

(Kinda wonder if they'd use elements from Crichton's Next. I seriously doubt it, but in this age of cinematic universes....)

 

That after credits scene, though. The few of us left in the theater gasped in awe that there actually WAS one, at which point it was already over.

For those collecting the toys, I've found wave 2 Roarivores and Attack Pack at Walmart in the last few days. Apparently the second wave of JWFK humans is out, too, but I haven't come across them yet.

I saw the second wave of $8-range dinosaurs at Walmart, too.  This included an orange raptor, green dimorphodon, and a herrerasaurus.

 

I also finally found a Walmart Exclusive Colossal T-Rex that wasn't half-ripped out of it's packaging by shoppers' children.  My nephew is going to head asplode on his birthday.

...well, provided his parents have been able to put his head back together from after when I got him the Mosasaur.

I've seen the Herrarsaurus, but none of the rest of the wave. I'm curious to see the tan/orange raptor and how it would fit in with the Target Legacy one. Also want to see the Wave 2 Legacy Raptor seemingly modeled on the one from JP3. 

Who is wave 2 for the humans?
