Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

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)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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 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?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

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

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

Yeah, the DX Chogokin Draken III I got was at an actual Bandai Tamashii Nations store in Akihabara. I almost passed on it, as I did not know the character or anything. They had the others on display, but none for sale.

Glad I did get it though, it is a great design.

I didn't like Zero.  I'd like to see it again, because I remember everyone being blown away by it (Macross Plus levels of awesome) and finding it highly, highly disappointing.  I do like how it ties in with Frontier.

 

Frontier is a love it / hate it thing.  It's my favorite Macross series (and that says a lot given how much Fire Bomber I listen to).  It's very much Macross - almost to excess - but I think that's part of the charm.  You have to get through the early parts, imo, for the later half of the series to really hit home. 

 

Macross 7 is a lot of stock footage, some really great designs, and the best music you'll ever get in a Macross project.

Don't forget the drums in Veffidas' VF-17.  Although I think Rey did most of the piloting.

 

I'm not tech savvy enough to have figured out how to watch Delta. I'm holding out hope that it'll get released once HGUSA loses the license.  Figure we'll get DYRL, a Zero & Macross Plus reissue, and then Frontier to start. Then hopefully Delta and (*crosses fingers*) 7.

Actually, all the Delta Blu-Rays have English subtitles, done by professional Anglophone fans who moved to Japan. You'll have to shell out a lot of money, but you can easily support Macross as a foreign fan in this regard.

Should have started with "The Galaxy is Calling Me" and then gone into Macross 7.  The first 12 or so episodes of 7 are awful.  Space vampire mystery adventure.  With stock footage. 

 

Transformations in Frontier are just like that.  Really been that way since Macross Plus and DYRL.  They're just not doing the slow, super detailed lookitexpensive shots.

 

Although, to be fair, Battle Frontier and Macross Quarter are smaller ships than the SDF-01*, and were designed to transform from the start, unlike the original Macross.

Received the DX Chogokin VF-1J today.  It’s really nice.  I do wish that the bar that connects his legs to his upper body wouldn’t come unclipped so easily.


I might get rid of it.  As while Hikaru is my favorite Macross character overall, his VF-1J Valkyrie is my least favorite Valkyrie.

 

Any of the VF-1S, the other VF-1J’s, or even most of the VF-1A’s are all preferred by me.

My wife got me the premium finish Arcadia SDF-1 for Christmas, and it is hugging amazing.

Along with that, I finally finished my Bandai "custom reissue" Hikaru Strike Valkyrie. Reissue VF-1A with modified numbers, vintage VF-1S head dyed to matchvthe weirdly nice pinky white plastic of the reissue, and vintage Strike armor. Arms were shaved down to accomodate the vintage armor.

So I've been browsing Ebay a lot lately for older Anime that for one reason or another I never picked up on DVD, 2 of those are Macross 2 and Macross Plus, Should the Harmony gold deal expire the floodgates of Mcross titles flooding the west will be open. So I'm wondering if I shouldn't wait to see if we get better editions down the line instead of buying used DVD's?

I wouldnt hold my breath on macross 2. Its been pretty much disowned by everyone if i remember right. But its still got macross in the name so its possible

Macross plus is the exact opposite of course. If you MUST have it now, buy standard dvd and pick up the blu ray when/if hg looses the license

Tried to get the DX VF-1S DYRL Hikaru Valkyrie when it went live 3 AM Monday morning.  Ended up paying about 5000 yen more than retail, but at least I have it.

 

I must have gotten extremely lucky with Hikaru's TV VF-1J, as I got that at Amazon Japan no problem (I probably woke up when it was available).  Max's TV VF-1A, I didn't even know was coming until it had already sold out.  :doh

And today in "Dave finds out things after it's faaaaaaar too late..."

I had no idea that ADV put out a fun of Macross in the mid 2000's, let alone that Mari Ijiima reprises her role as Minmei in English.

Dang, I have the Animeigo DVD's but I totally would have gotten that.

Naturally it's far too late to find it on the net at a reasonable price.

Guess my only hope is to bank on harmony gold tanking in 2021, and hope whoever rescue licences the show puts it on Blu Ray and includes the dub.
