King Nine, however, will not return.

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

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -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.

@  -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)

@  ▲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

@  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"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -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)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

Don’t we already have looks at Evergreen toys?


The line is called Authentics and it's too small to replace Generations.

If we're getting every character in multiple price points, the toyline will have a really small cast. Not wild about that, because I really do like this style.

These regurgitated press releases funneled through semi mainstream media are always embarrassing for everyone involved, but this one was impressively halfassed. I was so confused by the backwards order that I glossed right over the trukk-not-munky paragraph.

If this Ultimate Optimus is roughly Voyager sized or just a little bigger, he'll be my new IDW Optimus.

But I've said that 3 times in the last 2 months so there's probably ANOTHER, better toy of the design around the corner at this point

I mean, Wave 1 of toylines usually feature the main cast, and the main cast are usually the guys that do get toys in multiple size classes.

 

You can probably expect some that will only get 1 toy to pop up later, and some that will be in the show and will NEVER EVER EVER get toys too!

Ok. There seems to be a lot of confusion about the future. Let me see if I can frame what we know as I understand it. Feel free to correct:

1) Rescue Bots is getting a new Cartoon based on new young trainee characters at an Academy, coming next year I think and will certainly have toys for that.

2) These toys "Cyberverse" are the new Kid-Aimed Cartoon toyline, roughy based on "Evergreen" art, replacing the Robots in Disguise line.

3) We do not officially know when Power of the Primes will end. If it follows previous lines it would have a couple yet unknown waves in early 2019. There has been some rumor this will not happen and Generations will pivot to feature new Generations type toys based on the "Evergreen" artwork. We don't know yet, but maybe this weekend.

4) Authentics is a cheaper priced discount market line that will also use the "Evergreen" designs as a basis.

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.

 

Wait, like, articulated furrowed brow? That would be AMAZING. I would wiggle it up and down and have him poorly hit on so many femmebots.

My hope is that Cyberverse satisfies everyone's desire for the 84-85 main guys so that Generations can keep giving us guys like Submarauder and Mindwipe.

Beast Machines experimented with articulated faces, and this guy's face is just a hexagon. It's totally possible.

Shockwave as a terrible pickup artist seems in-character, and that's awful.

I dunno, these feel... too G1? Movie, Animated, and Prime Starscreams were distinct designs, I'm not getting too hyped for a Starscream that looks like the multiple G1-stlye versions I already have. When Generations exists, it feels redundant.

Yeah like, kids aren't gonna go "too G1 for me". As long as the cartoon's art style is modern and tailored to their tastes they're gonna click with it visually. And from the pics that we saw, yeah, the show looks just like every other action cartoon done in the last 2 years, so it should be fine to them. At worst one of them might be like "Optimus is the wrong kind of truck he is in the movies!".

The big Megatron hasn't got elbows. One of them would be useless anyway given the cannon, but he still hasn't got elbows.

 

I remember hearing a lot about the character that comes across through the articulation back when Armada was announced, so I expect that level. If that's the price of having neat spring loaded gimmicks, then like Armada I'll say it's worth it.

Shockwave has a button on the side of his cannon thing, so I presume the gimmick is some kind of firing movement, which is great, always liked those better than shooting missiles that you gotta go and grab from across the room.
