It's all about that Bass XD.

@  tigerhawk : (13 June 2021 - 02:16 AM)

Will altering the moons orbit in any way help.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

Just don't drop him.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 07:08 PM)

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

Aw, it's not even a shiny.

@  Sabrblade : (12 June 2021 - 05:27 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

Is it a remaster of the original theatrical release, or just the cropped version that was on the Shoutfactory DVDs?

Eh? According to TFWiki the theatrical widescreen version is the cropped one.

And Shout's website says their release included both widescreen and full frame versions.

It's not the old non-canon Broly movie from DBZ. It's a new one, canon to DB Super.

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.

I guess I'm one of those "some fans" and specifically thought those crop comparisons were only about the widescreen cut on the Shoutfactory release, and not about the theatrical version itself. And yes, I didn't say anything about Shout not having both versions.

Theaters are airing the old Broly movie in preparation for the new one, and in the same month as this Transformers movie airing too.

 

Well that seems redundant.

Ah, the first movie that I can remember seeing in theaters. I am so going to be there.

Though hopefully it will be in a decent distribution of theaters. Sometimes the fathom event stuff does not have showings anywhere near me.

My theater in Clarksville is good about Fathom showings; most of what I wanted to see they shown (except the Encore showings of 'Star Trek II') so I'm confident it will be near me. 

 

now to wait until August 3rd to find out, then I can blast on facebook and start bugging people to go with me.

Holy jive! I was born in '87 so I missed its very brief run, but I grew up watching TF:TM and never stopped loving it. The soundtrack is the first CD I ever bought and I have never play it in my cars because I'm pretty sure by the time Dare ended I'd be involved in a high speed chase on the highway.

 

So I've been wanting to see this in a theater since I was a kid. My brother and I once in a while rent a little indie theater for private screenings and this is on The List, which I figured that was the only way it was ever going to happen. Who knew the Bayformers would be good for something other than drink coasters? Maybe Bay can take a crack at GI Joe so I can get to see Sgt. Slaughter kick Nemesis Enforcer's ass all over the big screen.

 

Anyway, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go check and see if Gal Gadot is waiting in my driveway with a briefcase full of money, because apparently sometimes dreams do come true.

Terrible movie.

Those poor little tykes who wanted to see the characters from that silly cartoon in a film adventure were lured into a movie theatre where their Favorites like Optimus Prime, Ironhide and Starscream were slaughtered ruthlessly in the first twenty minutes. All because those nasty venom spewing writers and producers could work with Hollywood names like Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Orson Wells, Robert stack and Eric idle.


Your scientists have yet to discover how neural networks create self-consciousness, let alone how the human brain processes two-dimensional retinal images into the three-dimensional phenomenon known as perception. Yet you somehow brazenly declare that seeing is believing!

Yeah but would we still be here talking about all this if it wasn't for the movie in the first place? Maybe TF fandom would be as big as... M.A.S.K. or something like that? The movie was definitely *memorable* if nothing else -- due mostly to the radical change in setting and tone stemming from that desire to sell new toys.

I think you're putting far too much faith into the storytelling aspect of these decisions. Hasbro wanted to push new product, plain and simple, and it took less than a year for the major changes to be reverted once fan backlash got strong enough.

I'm oddly lukewarm on this simply because I JUST watched it at TFcon. It wasn't in a theatre, but the room had some of the best audio I'd ever heard it presented in, which helped a lot. Still, if this is a) in Canada b) relatively close and c) I can assemble a crew of my friends, I'll go.

Oh sure it was to get kids to buy all the new playsets and toys but it's still kinda ballsy in hindsight.
