@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 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.

@  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.

@  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.

@  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"

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

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

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

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

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

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

Edit: The first image seems to feature different figures than the rest of the piece, with a Starscream with big, Machine Wars-ish turbines on his wings.


Given the sizes, I assume that's Scout Megatron, Warrior Bumblebee, Ultra Starscream and the Ultimate Optimus Prime mentioned elsewhere.

If we're going to get modernized G1, I think this is the most successful attempt at that. That includes most of the Classics stuff. I like these. I'm interested to see the gimmickry.

They've made Shockwave look cross. That works in comics, not sure how well it works on a toy. On a different toy I suppose you could make that part articulated.

I think at this point we can definitely put "don't make anybody turn into a gun" high on the list of things that current Transformers creators would like to tell the original 1984 crew, along with "make at least six decos of every mold so people demand cheap lazy repaints".

I'm honestly surprised that Grimlock is in this assortment; I wonder if we'll see him in the cartoon.

Not entirely digging that dinosaur mode though, his T-rex head looks squashed like a pug or something.

RID's toyline certainly implies we won't get a ton of toys of non-show characters.

(Also that we won't get toys of a ton of show characters, not that I'm bitter or anything.)

The Warrior toys seem to be about the same level of complexity as the old ones, which is to say, simple but still more complex than the other figures.

 

I presume this will run much the same way as RID's toyline did with "gimmick stuff for big and small characters plus Warriors". Atleast the Optimus and the Megatron seem much more well de-vised than RID's own big toys, probably due to the fact they're allowed to have more than 3 steps.

G1 Shockwave was just him lying down with his arms pointing over his head. I'd put this alt mode in about the same category. I think it looks neat.

Not seeing anything worth buying myself. If Generations is really going to end and this is what we’re in for, I think I’m going to probably have Transformers be less of a drain on my wallet in the foreseeable future. I don’t really mind the look but everything here is just a slightly different way of G1 with simple kid friendly gimmicks built in. It’s just not a look I’m into. But it’s also making me wonder why Evergreen is even a thing now if this is the non movie focus. It’s just not too different from each other.

Evergreen is not a toyline. Evergreen is nothing that will ever ever see public eye. Evergreen is a folder of visual documents to be used as reference for the characters design and look across different media to create a visual link across media. Something Transformers has tried before but in a much more lax manner. There is no "Evergreen toyline". There will never be one. It just happens that comic artists and cartoon artists and licensing material people are being given these designs to work off. This is not ever replacing Generations.

People have been acting like complete and utter fools becuase the slide in the Habsro shareholder meeting showed a generic "Transformers: Generations" image under the "fan" age group for 2019 (POTP was shown for 2018)

It's just really dumb people looking for a reason to make themselves angry.

Nothing confirmed yet but sure seems to be quite a bit of “The Sky is falling” talk around lately about Generations.

Don’t we already have looks at Evergreen toys?

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.
