@  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.

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)

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

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.

My eBay Ratbat and Rumble set arrived the other day.

 

If I forget the fact that I essentially paid double the retail price for them, they're pretty okay little rectangle dudes.

I'd like Ratbat/Rumble for completion's sake, but after getting the set with Frenzy and Wingthing, I don't think I could make myself pay double retail or forget about it afterward.

I mean, when I was actually in high school, girlfriends were all either beasts so everyone hated them, or still hanging around at KB, unwanted.

This is getting a little weird.

So the Micromaster Ratbat/Rumble 2-pack is suddenly all over eBay for laughably low prices from Chinese sellers, many of them with feedback in the two digit region. Many of them are offering dozens of them.

 

Scammers? (Some of them have supposedly been registered eBay users for several years, despite the low feedback.) Counterfeit knockoffs? A genuine new production run for Asia? A warehouse find?

Nothing too exciting about the packaging for mine. There was a label in Chinese at the bottom of the back of the packaging (where the legalese would be), which I just assumed was Chinese legalese instead (I didn't pay much attention).

So...Asia production run...?

Best guess? A sizable portion of the production run got held back because of COVID related shut downs and with Earthrise already being out Hasbro probably dumped them in Asia where resellers are scooping them up for a quick profit.

Weren't these hitting latte in the year last year and Earthrise was hitting pre-pandemic. So I don't think that had much to do with it.

It could also be a combination of that and "tail end of the line" syndrome. Major retailers dropped the assortment, the usual "you'd have to be lucky to find any of these in stores" happened, Hasbro had already produced a sizable stock of them, usually they'd eventually end up at Ross or TJ Maxx, but THEN Covid-19 happened, they had nowhere to go, and with China opening back up earlier than other countries, Hasbro decided to dump them there instead.
