@  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.)

@  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)

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)

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.

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"

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  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.

I prefer my separate releases and individualized artwork etc; look nice lined up together on a shelf. Also, the box sets tend not to include 3-D discs, even in those countries that still get them.

Speaking of which, has there been any news at all of a full Phase 3 box set to go with the fancy props-included P1 and P2 ones? It's starting to feel a little late to announce one.

At this point, I'd just welcome a rerelease of the Region 1 set for Phase Two. I fear I missed out on it, barring luck on eBay.

Well, the final Phase 3 film still isn't out yet, so they may be waiting for its individual release.

 

Also, since those last two sets were released, most of the MCU has now been re-released on 4K Blu-ray. The final 3 titles (GotG v1, Doctor Strange, and Ant-Man) are set to release on 4K alongside Far From Home on Oct. 1st. Disney may be planning new 4K sets of the first three phases that would render the originals obsolete.

Waiting for it too.  IIRC the Phase 2 set was announced pretty late in the year when it came out.  They are likely waiting for for Spiderman FFH to be released before they announce it.

So after months of owning Endgame, and making plan to do so but having them fall through, tonight the kids and I ordered Chipotle from Door Dash, sat down, and watched Infinity War and Endgame back to back.

Even though Ive watched many of the scenes in Instagram since April several times, man, was it still a fun trip and just as powerful as it was in the theater.

Since you saw it back to back, I feel like the impact wasn't there because you guys didn't have to wait a year to know what happened next?

I wish they would make an extended cut that combined both movies along with both mid-credits scenes from Ant-Man and the Wasp and Captain Marvel (since those two mid-credits scenes contain elements that are vital to Endgame's story) spliced into appropriate placements.

I don't mind it being called the Blip because in universe that's what it was. The global population weren't there to see Thanos snap his fingers in Wakanda, we were. To them it was tons of people vanishing and being told it was Thanos doing later.

 

At worst, it's kind of a callous name for something so major. But then my country is wrecking itself with a project that sounds like a shit breakfast cereal, so hey...

Glad they never used the name "decimation" in the films. That's a terrible name for it. Further invalidates what the comics tried to do outside the films.

Weve already seen both films previously. We even watched IW a day or two before we saw EG in theaters. I just wanted to do it in one epic night of binge watching.

The snap is still powerful, but I thought the exact thing about the CM and AM&tW needing to be seen in between both movies. Otherwise Tonys rescue feels out of place and Scotts reappearance just becomes a bit random.

watched a youtube video about endgame last night and they pointed out a couple things i hadnt noticed in my 10 or so viewings. during the opening logo montage, everyone that got snapped has been removed. and when the main theme kicks in after they decide to go get thanos, apparently half the orchestra isnt playing cause they got snapped too

The problem with Avengers Infinity War and Endgame is that the premises are both incredibly stupid.
Thanos' plan is to just kill half the people of the universe, period. What about the endangered species? Like, say, The Asgard, who are down to a couple hundred people--barely a viable gene pool. Killing half of them pretty much guarantees extinction. What about worlds where sentience is just beginning to evolve, and they have a nearly virgin world FULL of resources? And killing half doesn't really solve anything. In the case of humans, the number people will be restored within 100 years.

This entire plan is poorly thought out, and outright stupid.

Add to that so much of Infinity war focuses on Guardians of the Galaxy. These characters are mostly... boring, one-note cardboard cut-outs. No effort was made to flesh them out in the first movie, and the second was so painfully slow as to border on unwatchable. (Seriously, almost 2 hours in before they start to get around to an actual plot). Ug.

In Endgame, the humans are carrying on more like 90% of the people have been killed than just half. By the way, killing 1/2 of San Francisco would do nothing to solve the housing situation--vacancies would be filled within 6 months. Stark's time-travel plan is almost as poorly thought out as Thanos' kill 1/2 of everyone plan. He insists that the last 5 years still happen so that his daughter will be alive. Has he thought it through? He has not! Bringing back 1/2 the population from the dead 5 years later has huge problems. Never mind the people who were in airplanes, ships at sea, cars on the freeway, operating tables, etc. What about the people who remarried? What about the people who remarried and had children? What about property rights of people who died, had their estates distributed according to their wills and trusts, and now come back? There's a huge disconnect here.

 

They make such a big deal about getting all these heroes together, but it really seems like they haven't thought through anything like "let's have a good story to tell." Instead we have dumb glamor shots like "Let's have all the hero women form up behind Spider-man as a symbol of... something."

 

Gotta say, the best Avengers movie is... Captain America: Civil War. Infinity War and Endgame are barely better than that awful Sean Connery Avengers movie.

The annoying thing is that they have Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes to show them how to make good  Avengers stories. Why can't they learn from that?
