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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

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.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲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

@  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?

Hoping my TFSource preorder pulls through, since I missed the boat on BBTS's preorder due to having never gotten word of it until after it was sold out.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

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.

Same. He's the last one I need for my Starscream, Starscream, Starscream, Starscream, and StarscreamTerrorsaur combiner.

Mine has listed as paid for and will ship shortly from TFSource, so I think you'll be fine.  Soon, with his reprolabels and new shiner limbs, Tighty Whitey will be no more!  Starscream's new combiner name will be GOLDWINGER!

 

Then Starscream will be seen planning to get that non-combining tetrajet body as soon as he can...

 

I do wonder if anyone will buy three of these and claim they have Skywarp and Thundercracker too like tfwiki advocates.

My TFSource preorder for GL Starscream has processed. Gonna wait to ship it later after I save up a bit so as to take advantage of the free shipping on orders over $150. Got my eyes on a few other things that I can group together in my Stack with Screamer.

I can, tomorrow. Ironically there are no instructions on how to transform him into leg mode. Just var and arm mode. They tell you to combine him with Abominus.

Incidentally both he and Optimus come with tech spec bio cards. Their stats are all 10's even if it's really their Endurance is infinite.

"Sadly, Megascream was felled before he could even step into the battle on account three of his limbs each tried to stab the torso in the back. SG Starscream, meanwhile, made treats for everyone."


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Starscream just came in the mail. I played around with him a bit, putting him in jet mode for a few minutes before attaching him as Ulchtar "King Starscream's" arm.

 

HO BOY

 

If the other "Lucky Draw"-type, hyper chromed figures are like him, me and my wallet are glad that this will be the only one we get. I was so scared of breaking something every time I moved a joint, and I think I've already chipped off some of the shiny gold paint where the legs connect together (why oh WHY did you paint over this Takara)

 

he looks great though.

I'll be honest, at the expense of some of the chrome I sanded a bit of the leg-tabs to avoid future issues.  I can fix it easier now than later.  But I knew this wasn't going to be the most durable figure, it is one of the few cases where I decided to get something just to enjoy the sheer weirdness value. I'll probably get one of those gold chrome pens as a backup for future repairs. Back in the Transmetal days I used chrome nail polish for repairs, though that was hit or miss.

Just an observation, if you take him outside, there are actually multiple GRADIENTS of gold on it (in the chrome I mean, not counting what I added in weapons OR the non-chrome plastic).  It looks amazing, and...seems completely impossible to photograph.  Nuts.  Either way, definitely a nice thing as for my and several other people's purposes, Sunstorm was sometimes portrayed as something really unusual and this toy has that in spades. I could see him being something of an outlier, willing to temporarily join a combiner team but never for any reason that makes any sense to anyone.
