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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

@  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.

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"

@  ▲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)

@  -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)

The big-fisted orange guy is Grrr'illa Grimes, in the Shed Heads. Looks like a big jug of cleaning fluid or something? One of the types that you pump up and then use an attached hose to spray stuff down.

 

 

He's a Gojo Hand cleaner.

Kinda annoyed the Great Cantuna is only in mulipacks, but at least the 8-pack is basically the exact list of guys I'd hope to be stuck with (the bug spray being the one exception). It always seems like the one i want is bundled with a bunch i don't.

I was right about Hamurai, was not expecting Detangler to be similarly only-in-singles.

 

Must-buy breakdowns coming later today, hopefully.

Okay. I want to make sure it's clear that THIS IS NOT 100% CONFIRMED BUT I'M REASONABLY CERTAIN OF THIS "MINIMUM BUY" SETUP.

 

You're looking at five 5-packs, four 8-packs, and 17 singles, with only 1 of those found also in a multi-pack (but not one in the min-buy range)

  • SINGLES: Captain Swoon, Detangler, Dumbeats, Glitchface, Hamurai, Ice Sight, In-Sole, Javasaurus Rex, King Candyhooves, Must Turd, PB Junior, Sandy Man, Sippyberry, Sir Botcha, Techtonic Sonic, Tropic Guzzlerush, TV Cop
  • BACKPACK BUNCH w/ Bogus Pocus & Short Edge
  • BACKPACK BUNCH w/ Bottocorrect & Steve From Accounting
  • MUSIC MOB w/ Grampiano & Pink Key Pop
  • SHED HEADS w/ Drillit Yaself & Spots the Rock
  • SHED HEADS w/ Grrr'illa Grimes & Tool Bag
  • SPOILED ROTTENS w/ Big Cantuna & Sour Wing
  • SPOILED ROTTENS w/ Atomic Freeze & Sour Wing
  • SWAG STYLERS w/ Chic Cheek & Frizzle Fry
  • SWAG STYLERS w/ Frizzle Fry & Prince Perfumius

You'll end up w/ 11 duplicates. While you're buying one more 5-pack than Series 1, you're not getting as many duplicates as last time (upward 15ish in S1 depending on which Jock Squad you got).

 

I'm just glad that the two 5-packs I skipped (since I knew the Lost Bots in those) aren't part of the min-buy range.

The Hasbro BotBots Page has updated with all the Series 2 Bios:

 

https://transformers.../brands/botbots

 

Once again some unexpected ladies. Rebugnant, Ol Tic Tok, Brok Head, Must Turd, Hawt Mess, Bottocorrect, Scribby, Ice Sight, Tropic Guzzlerush, Drillit Yasself, Grrr'illa Gimes, Lolli Mints, Sippyberry, Javasaurus Rex, Nope Soap, Gitchface, Hashtagz, Technotic Sonic, Sourwing, Big Cantuna, Grampiano, and Ollie Bite are all female bots.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, some interesting fun stuff and I really like that they continue to not just choose "girly" altmodes or female at first glace robot forms for the ladies. Some of the weirdest and least "humanoid" are among the girls here.

That's GOT to be a case of the copywriter not understanding what the toy was meant to be.

 

Brotato seems to be the same way. He definitely has either gravy or ketchup on his fries (the coloring is a little ambiguous, I'm going with him being Poutine myself)  but either way it is definitely NOT the color of cheese sauce which is what this bio claims he is covered in.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, I suppose it could be like chilli, I guess, but still, that ain't cheese.

I kind of feel the same way about Grampiano being a woman. Yes, it COULD be a portmanteau of "gramma" with "piano" rather than "grampa", but the latter feels a lot more likely to have been the intent behind the name.

Especially since the words are "Grandma" and "Grandpa". The "Gram-" spelling is usually used for "Gramps" or "Grampy", though in the latter's case the female equivalent is admittedly "Grammy".

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.

Love Struck's so weird, he's decoed like a softball and his bio says he's a softball, but he's got a tennis name. I guess it went like: designed as softball -> name-giver thinks he's a tennis ball -> bio-writer recognises he's a softball and just rolls with the name.
