My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

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

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

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.

@  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.)

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.

@  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 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.

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  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"

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.

soooo, with the cartoon over, how long do ye think the toyline has until it gets taken behind the shed and "Ole Yeller-ed"

Season Three is still just beginning to air in the US, its main market. We know that there are toys beyond what we've seen from solicitation leaks (Ultimate Iaconus). IIRC some of the ones that have been officially solicited don't actually hit stores until Fall. I would not expect the next kids line to launch till Spring 2021 at least.

-ZacWilliam, depending on how "evergreen" Hasbro feels Cyberverse is with kids I can imagine it lasting decently long without a new show honestly. Fall 2021 wouldn't be very surprising to me for a follow up either.

Yeah, same here. All those damned extentions they made us click on...

But at the same time, Amazon suddenly shipped the deluxe Hot Rod and Grimlock last night, and I should get them today.
Edit: apparently since last night, they changed the delivery until tomorrow. Even though the tracking says it has been in the next town over since 12:30am.

Unfortunately, it looks like in order to make that possible they had to slightly tweak her proportions so she looks capable of standing up under her backpack's weight. They were also forced to include some Build-A-Figure parts.

Had to get Rack N' Ruin on principle, and they're decent. I mean, there are obviously a lot more corners cut, but they have a pretty nice range of articulation. The below-knee swivel is there for the transformation but it's pretty convenient.

Something worth considering is that Hasbro is actively talking about a Transformers film in 2022 in their social media stuff.  With stuff like GI Joe, My Little Pony and disruptions caused by COVID...I wonder if Hasbro might indeed take 2021 "off" in terms of an active new project.  There's the final part of War for Cybertron (which may include some Netflix tie in), the integration of the 86 film into Studio Series, and multiple Transformers games.  That's a healthy slate for any brand.

 

It'd be nice to see Cyberverse pared down and put some focus on the many, MANY, supplementary characters that haven't got a toy, or at least a passable toy (Scout Dead End anyone?).

Wouldn't be the first time Hasbro took a year off without any new animated series in favor of waiting until the following year before rolling out the next big thing, media-wise.

 

They did exactly that back in 2006. The Cybertron cartoon ended in 2006, while the first live action movie didn't come out until mid-2007. Instead of creating another show to tide people over until the movie's release, they instead opted to just have Cybertron rerun on Cartoon Network all throughout 2007 until Animated finally came along to replace it at the end of 2007/in early 2008.

That sounds likely.

With Rescue Bots Academy introing a Titan as well, is it wrong that I kinda want a whole line of Titans toys? They don't all need to be "Titan Class" in fact I would actually much prefer they weren't because "Ow my wallet" but say this guy's size would be great.

-ZacWilliam, with all the new Titans showing up on Toons recently they could go a while before even getting to the G1 guys.

-ZacWilliam, with all the new Titans showing up on Toons recently they could go a while before even getting to the G1 guys.

I've been eyeballing a 3rd Party Fortress Maximus because the Titan is just too big.  Remember how big 2005-era Leaders were?  Given the relative size of toys these days, I'd take a Fort Max at around Metroplex (2006) height.

 

 

I was thinking last night (uh oh...) that Hasbro should roll another series of Cyberverse Deluxe figures.  Here's what I'd pick, focussing on a mix of reuse, filling key show slots, and meeting general market demands (ie, core or core-adjacent characters).  My vision is that 5 of the figures would come with parts for a Quintesson (maybe do a removable face so that the parts could also function as tentacle drones).  The remaining could be "armory" figures sporting a show accessory or unique weapon.  Maybe do 10 figures- first 6 or 7 in the first part of the year, the remaining as a closeout wave in the fall.

 

Quintesson parts-

Hot Rod (stealth deco)

Dead End

Whirl

Soundwave

Windblade

 

Armory figures

Cheetor (with Allspark- which features connection peg and maybe split into parts for armor)

Starscream (with scraplet(s))

Megatron X (with Matrix)

Perfect Decepticon (Megatron retool)

Optimus Prime (no face mask, battle call weapons.
