@  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)

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.

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.

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.

Everyone's always complaining now about how everything has to be G1, and now people are upset that Brian's making a new character and not using some rando whose sole defining trait was that he was a weirdo who got fridged.

I think it wasn't so much complaining that Geomotus wasn't Geosensus, as asking why they would resurrect the name and character just to change it, on the assumption they were related, then disagreements over whether they could in fact not be. If that had held any water, it would have been different IMO to insisting that the prose story guy inherently just needs a second pass right this instant. Like, the extreme comparison of this specific aspect of the disagreement (let's please no one get distracted by any of the others, the analogy isn't meant to fit them) would be IDW introducing a cowardly and disloyal leader of the Decepticons jets named Starbeam - no one would be talking about the IDW original character suddenly replacing the worthy Starscream, they'd be asking why Starscream was changed.


That said I'm not sure what the overlap between fans who are regularly upset by too much G1 and ones regularly upset by IDW original characters is.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Well I’ve officially designed my first all-new female Transformer in a while. For something.....

 

Who knows, maybe it’ll be a toy someday.

 

Interesting; Griffith will not say just yet who this character is or where she will appear. I feel like Termagax's upcoming on-panel debut in June is too soon for her to have been fully designed just now in March, but who knows?

Maybe something movie-related? I kind of assumed Griffith and Milne would be the least likely of the regular IDW artists to be involved in the reboot, at least early on.

The way he phrased it makes me feel like it's for something a bit out of the ordinary we don't know about yet. Given his later response to questions about it, this sounded like something we'll see within like 6 months which is probably too soon for it to be the new Netflix toon or Cyberverse.

-ZacWilliam, What, I couldn't guess... Maybe like a kid's storybook or some sort of one shot. I could imagine it for the Ghostbusters book or something else of the type.

#3 isn't on the shipping list for April 10th. There's barely anything at all from IDW scheduled for next week, so it looks like the standard IDW's printing and/or shipping is terrible situation.

Well never let it be said that Tumblr users don't jump the gun to conclusions.

 

@Brian_Ruckley Are we going to be seeing representation of openly and canonically gay/lesbian couples and transgender characters in the new Transformers series like we did in the previous ones from IDW? Because that was a huge part of why that continuity is my favourite to date
 

No spoilers, but I do aim to 'echo' (for want of a better word) the representation that was there before, yes - I'd be lying if I said it's going to be heavy foreground early on, but - 1/2

- I do have it as a sort of basic assumption for this universe, and it won't be invisible. (Think the first mention of such a couple might be in dialog in 4, but don't hold me to that, cos I'm not at my computer!)

 

And on a different subject:

 

@Brian_Ruckley Is Megatron a Cybertronian supremacist? Or does he like organic life, too?

 

Not a supremacist exactly, but an expansionist for sure. And to be honest, in this universe, he's far from alone in being a Cybertronian who finds organic life some version of uninteresting/odd/a bit inferior.

I’ve had a number of people ask if I’m involved in the IDW Transformers reboot. Simple answer is Yes. I contributed to issue 4, and there will be more to come soon after that.

So Comixology says #3 is April 17 - three weeks after #2? Did we know the schedule was going to work out that way or were we still expecting only a two week gap?

 

Not that my intent here is all "falling sky, IDW delays again aaaiiieeeee" or whatever - just curious.

Some news! I’ll be doing some art in issue 4 of the @IDWPublishing #Transformers reboot, and got to design a new female character for it. Can’t say much about her role but @IDW_David_M gave me permission to share her design. Colors are the rough ideas I shared with @jcburcham.
