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

Indeed....

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.

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.

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.

@  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 : (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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 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?

Because of the mention of "different markets" I think you can probably expect the kind of cybertronian vehicle or alien stuff that gets touted in chinese and what not toylines. Like, "TRON cars" and what not. Though hopefully alot better realized than the hugging WFC alt modes and their "losenges with cockpits" they liked to do at times.

I have no idea how any of the infobites dropped actually come together...

But War Dawn style alt modes with less toy like design and meshing things different people like still says hovercar Bumblebee but now with the hard elbow jab that Aileron would be his repaint.

 

Yes! Aileron! Do it!

 

"War Dawn style alt modes" still isn't a thing though, unless everyone is Dion, a transport drone, or a box.

The "bridging the gap between the aesthetics that different areas of the world enjoy" thing 100% sounds to me like "looks more movie-ish". Asian markets have generally been very into the movies/movie aesthetic, right?


That's what it sounds like to me. I always thought Alternity managed to do that pretty well.

If this line finally gives us a nice Voyager or Leader-class Generations Shockwave, then I'm all for it. They've danced around that one for-friggin-ever.

Yeah, I get why people don't like the constant rehashing of the first few years, but on the other hand... potential for a good G1-ish Ratchet. I skipped his Generations toy years ago because it was so ugly.

I'm not sure why but I kind of expect the first wave of this line to be retools of POTP, at least the deluxes. I doult we'll get a voyager Shockwave in the first year, because Shockwave getting a toy in the Cyberverse line but my personal hope is that they revisit Motor Master and redo him with the CW connection ports, mainly because I felt the CW figure was a failure on many levels, even as OP it was a failure to me at least.

Hasbro has said WFC Deluxes will be so different from Prime Wars ones in some way that when we see them we will know why Prime Wars Deluxes could absolutely not be used for the basis for the WFC Fan Chosen 2-packs.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

-ZacWilliam, and maybe no CW-style Combining?

Maybe they'll take another year off from combining so as not to flood the market. I mean, Monstructor and maybe the seacons could fit Pre-war so long as pre-war isn't taken to be 'only vehicles'. Hasbro knows they're popular, ad knows we'd likely want more... so it would potentially make sense to come back to them now and then while trying to keep them 'fresh'

I do expect Hasbro to use the basic torso molds from CW & TR, regardless of what they say offically but as Shadewing said, it could be they taking another year off to scheme their next combiners, aside from the Seacons, they could be looking at the idea of more original combiners, I don't think anyone saw SkyRegin coming when they began releasing the figures, then again, I don't think anyone saw Hasbro doing serious G1 Dinobots beyond Grimlock, let alone having them combine, so its a case of expect the unexpected, at least until later this year when pictures start leaking out showing us what they been doing.

That STRONGLY suggests no PotP retools.

I think the thing that suggests no PotP retools was the following sentence about starting from a clean slate, all-new, etc. and not, you know, using retools from PotP. The "you'll get it when you see it" line is still ambiguous to me, since it's very specifically about the fan poll characters and sounded to me like he was talking about the fact of the pairing (which is explicitly not about a joint toy gimmick, but some other thing that will be obvious to us.)

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I wonder how Hasbro would even be able to get rid of the stickers since they were apparently a COST measure. Price increase? Maybe a lack of gimmick which lets them spend more on paint?

I’m excited for a line of Dery-esque retro future alt modes, I mean I’ve wanted a proper toy of Bumblebee’s cybertronian alt mode and some tetra jets since I was little! So like I could be very down for what this line has got.

The change in design could be good, but if it veers too far movie that could be well... ugh. Like Universe Ironhide or the WFC (the game) designs: messy. There could be a balance but idk, I’m curious how Hasbro is gonna pull it off with the current budget? If it just means unpainted overly greebly tech detail haphazardly placed across the bot mode then I’m out. Hopefully not. (I also find it odd to try to work that look in when the movie series seems to be winding down?)

Also, if Wheeljack is on the list it means he's probably not part of the planned line, so if he doesn't win, no big white floaty box for Hoverbee to ride in.
