@  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.

@  -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 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)

@  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 Sideswipe is G2 on the last day before the Ark launches, I'm pretty sure that means the original G1 is, like, G3 at minimum.

 

I'm sure similar continuity-bending thoughts were considered back when Fall of Cybertron G2 Bruticus was done back in 2012, too.

Sometimes I don't understand myself. Siege Sideswipe bores me to tears, but the same exact thing in different colors? MASSIVE NEED. That transparent red on black does things to me. Nice things.  ;) 

It doesn't hurt that he's apparently gonna be packed with a repaint of one of my favorite recent deluxes.

I feel you. MP Sideswipe did nothing for me. But when the G2 version came out? I had to have it.

Yeah, the packaging doesn't say FOC anywhere on him, or even Generations.  It's just a G2 box.  There's no time warping involved.  He's just G2.

Skywarp is nice.  I appreciate the extra bit of silver there to make the jet mode look like it does in the animation, rather than being a one for one color swap with Thundercracker and Starscream.
 
I do wish the robot had received the purple shoulders and arm cannons, so he wouldn't be a one for one swap for Thundercracker and Starscream.  :)
 

2) I forget, do we know what the Weaponizers with Skywarp and Sideswipe are named?
 

I think there might have been a name or two with the original listing.
 
Seems Aimless might still be Aimless at least (unless that's an early name):
 
attachicon.gif61a04fee3d6d55fb6225bf6d60224f4a21a4dd56__scaled_8001.jpg
 
Hoping they have new names personally.
 
Well, it's not the same mould as Aimless (well, the weapon I mean), so that's interesting.
 
It's actually Aimless's brother, Aimmore.

I thought that's what happened when the moon hit your eye like a big pizza pie.

I do wish the targetmasters would, like, have some color variety so that it'd be more fun to mix and match limbs and torsos.

 

Or maybe I don't.  It'd be a reason to get Skywarp.

Not-Slamdance is a perfect example of "if you can't get an homage right without creating a new mold (and using an existing mold is your only option), maybe you should focus your attentions on some other character."

Just swap in a red Decepticon sigil, and now he's Shattered Glass. Problem solved.

I'm considering it.

I mean I actively don't want it as an SG Flywheels because "meh".

But as Slamdance... more "meh".

(It looks very cool and is a well executed deco... just not as the guy it is. Maybe I'll just consider it a new-character Duobot.)

I think the tip of Swipe's new gun is the same mold as Sixgun's little red guns..

Edit: whoops, that's exactly the same as his old gun :wtf :doh

Plz keep in mind that I don't have a Siege Sideswipe, and I've barely looked at pictures of the thing.

Skywarp, I want for sure (Hasbro take my money, again), Green Light, is a maybe for my fembot combiner, remove Jazz or Aphla Bravo from the current setup with Elita One (my verison), G2 Sideswipe, I might pass on, looks nice but I don't have much love for it, the Flywheels repaint, I'll pass on, just looks terrible!

I'm fine with it as a new character.  I even like the idea of it as SG (Slamdance, I was thinking, but of course these aren't canonical colors for SG Slamdance). It does look cool.

 

But it's NOT Slamdance. He's upside-down.

I can't speak for "we" in that scenario. Not sure I agree speaking only for myself, and certainly a lot of folks ARE excited for this figure even now.

Let's not get away from the main point, here.

 

First a Seacon, now Raindance and Grandslam. Someone at Hasbro is obviously paying homage to Transformers #47, because they know it was my first TF comic. And to that I say, "Thank you" and "New Blaster when?"

One thing, and this is NOT a veiled insult at the toy, it's a serious question because I know monitor display color can be off.  Does Skywarp have BROWN splatter-paint on vehicle mode?  Robot mode looks to have the usual silver splatter for this line, but the jet nose looks brown on my screen.

Well, speaking of reusing molds to unsatisfactory results instead of bothering to create new ones, we got a new Soundwave now...

I don't have mine on hand to check, but I think Starscream (or at least some other Stege toy) also has brown battle damage splatter.
