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)

King Nine, however, will not return.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

@  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)


@  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)


@  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)


@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

The Grail Page 8.
Story time because I want to be that guy that talks about finding my grail for way longer than I should knowing it's probably not that interesting. If you don't care, skip to below the line for me rambling about the future of the comic instead.
This comic came about when I got back from LexCon 2016. The Tako Tank had been my grail since Botcon 2006 when I decided I wanted every mold made for Beast Wars, even the wacky stuff. Especially the wacky stuff. After getting pretty much all the US and Neo stuff, the BWII stuff was proving difficult. When prioritizing what I wanted most, the Tako Tank quickly went to the top of my list. It was interesting and unless the Niagara Base, looked like it interacted better with the other toys.
Fast forward to 2016, when I was doing well (at the time, at least) and not sure what I was going to buy at that year's LexCon. I was hanging out at the Captured Prey (CP) booth, having just bought an Astro Megazord from them (came back for the Shockwave and Nightbird used in the comic later), when one of the booth workers returns with a Niagara Base in their arms. My first question to them was where they found that and is there more. He answered that there were no more Niagara Bases, which was fine, but there was a Tako Tank, which was even better.
I'm very thankful for the people working the CP booth that night because not only did they alert me to a Tako Tank, one of them was kind enough to lead me to the booth. Now if you were ever at a Botcon, the dealers room is about the same size most years and Botcon 2006 was in the exact same room that CP's booth was in at LexCon that year. That dealer room was LexCon's secondary dealers room on the 3rd floor. The main dealer room was on the 1st floor and is at least 3 times bigger. It's also about 5 times more crowded.
So they lead me to the booth. I had pass this booth at some point noticing only that they had a case of Transformer prototypes, something I'm not into collecting, but fun to look at. They had the Tako Tank pretty far behind the counter blocked from my view. Mint in box, something I don't care that much about, but in a case like this, it means it's 100% complete. After discussing the price and me rushing back to my hotel room for more money, I got my Tako Tank. I did ask the seller where he got it in such good shape. He said he bought it from a former Kenner employee that was clearing out all his work related toys, including some of the prototypes. Do I believe him? I don't know, but for the purposes of this story I do.
Anyways, that's how I got my Tako Tank, my grail of 10 years. Hope I didn't bore you. Now let's talk about what's next for ATTF.
And Then They Fight 45-49 will be gag strips. 47 was already posted (the Super Bowl one). 48 is special, but I'm not saying how. After that, ATTF 50 will be a return to the TAOWAR storyline. Few notes about that.
I'm reducing "T.A.O.W.A.R.: The Adventures of W. and Raider" to just "TAOWAR." I thought about dropping it completely, but it notes that it's part of a storyline for easier reading, similar to The Grail or Spy Troops (which I do plan to continue).
This will be the Land of Summons story I've always wanted to get around to, but never could. Aside from being a continuation of the TAOWAR storyline, this will be a mostly shelf contained story meant to tie up loose ends and have some fun in the Land of Summons aka Tír na nÓg.
And since this post is one of the longest I've done in a forever, here's the cover of #50. Behold, the main villain of the story that all will strike fear in all!

Main cast is a much smaller group this time. There's still plenty of new and old faces to see though. Also, I originally had an entire comic planned before this point where Blade recruits everyone and they get a space ship. My goal was to make things more simple and that created needing a lot of new sets that I didn't have. I dropped all of that and just used Gates again as a teleporter.

TAOWAR: Tír na nÓg Page 3.
So, slight change of plans. Starting next week, two pages a week. Why the change? I've been thinking about doing this for awhile and now seems like a good time. Part of it is that I think this story is better paced for two pages a week and part of it was me getting far enough ahead in story comics that I felt comfortable doing so.
Updated schedule:
May 2019:
5/30/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 4 and 5
June 2019:
6/6/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 6 and 7
6/13/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 8 and 9
6/20/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 10 and 11
6/27/19: ATTF #50: Tír na nÓg Page 12 and 13
PS Unilla Icequeencone is one of my new favorite characters to write for. You'll get to see why next week.

As promised, two pages starting this week and two pages going forward. Of the new characters introduced in this storyline, Unilla Icequeencone is easily my favorite. She's a proper royal type that can turn into a teenager at a drop of a hat. She's so much fun to write.

At one point I was going to have Blade summon Shortround and ride him like he has in the past, but given the setting introducing Snowcat was the better choice. Next week: Rippersnapper attacks!

Today we get to know Rippersnapper a little bit. He has some Wolverine in him. Mainly the "bubs." Also got a small cameo by King Toots, though for purposes of this joke, it's just a roll of toilet paper.

In an earlier scripted Claw Jaw was the guide character at the beginning. That role ended up going to Nega-Gnome. Brought in Claw Jaw here because I saw a place to bring him into the story for the things I wanted to do with him.

Cliffhanger! You all probably saw this coming, but this is a multiparter. The rest of the story is already completed. The next part will be 27 pages long (not including cover or recap) and will be posted 2 pages a week like the first part.
I mentioned that I suddenly added a page earlier in the week. Originally page 13 was the first panel of the current page 13 and the last panel of the current page 14. I added the extra page because I realized I glossed over some minor things I shouldn't have and this was the best place to fix it.
The story will continue in August in ATTF #55 TAOWAR: War For Tír na nÓg Siege. In the meantime, July will be a month of one off random silliness. It's going to be a fun time.
July 2019 Schedule:

I finally finished Kamen Rider Ryuki this year on my 3rd attempt. Seeing as it was the 3rd attempt, you might guessed I'm not big on the show. I enjoyed things about it, but as a whole it just doesn't work for me. Ouji is cool. Anyways, I just wanted to poke some fun at it. I might make a comic of my grievances with this show if I can ever find a punchline for it.
