Hey everybody! I wanted to announce that Sarahthecutevixen is our newest addition to the Allspark staff. She's primarily looking over discord stuff, but I wanted to make sure she got a welcome over here as well.

@  repowers : (13 June 2021 - 12:45 PM)

Mr. Speaker, we are for the Bass X0.

@  Nevermore : (13 June 2021 - 06:04 AM)

It's all about that Bass XD.

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.

@  Kaon : (12 June 2021 - 08:03 PM)

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

Carefull, he is a Bass Xo.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 June 2021 - 05:53 PM)

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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

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.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

@  Bass X0 : (07 June 2021 - 02:22 PM)

Yes Cybershark, and now no force in the universe can stop us.

@  Cybersnark : (07 June 2021 - 10:03 AM)

@  Shockwave 75 : (06 June 2021 - 11:35 AM)

So glad the boards are back!

@  Echowarrior : (06 June 2021 - 07:45 AM)

It's alive! Alive!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 June 2021 - 08:32 PM)

Aw man, I missed this place...

@  Sabrblade : (05 June 2021 - 08:31 PM)

Now here in Manhattan, the spell is broken! And we live again!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (05 June 2021 - 08:16 PM)

Groovy.

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 07:23 PM)

@  Kaon : (05 June 2021 - 06:42 PM)

test

@  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.

I just assume he suddenly realizes that wasn't a fart.

 

I do wonder if he'll be able to hold the blaster in a more 'two handed' pose, seeing as his hands appear to be different from the Hot Spot base mold.  Also not sure where all that extra hose goes or how the backpack transforms. I'm definitely not regretting skipping a few figures to get a Botcon clear blue Mirage, though.  It'll pair perfectly and be a nice contrast to everyone else's Starscream pictures coming up (I admit I did get the Prize Inside Screamer ghost).

mr frowny face 

 

He aint afraid of no ghosts. He is however very disappointed in them.

 

 

I like the car mode..  but his robot mode has far too little color.

 

I'm surprised at how bland it looks myself. More khaki would have even helped. 

 

 

mine will be in robot mode at least once, but most of the time its gonna be in vehicle mode

 

He's frowning because he hasn't busted any ghosts yet, and thus does not feel good.

 

nah, hes got a case of carpathian kitten loss

He's bloody amazing. The var mode is great, the robot is great. I don't have any issues with the deco, I think the robot is broken up nicely. 

 

Removable goggles would have been nice. I mean, how hard is it to "be as good as Prime Hot Shot"? It's not that high a bar. But I can live with it.

I feel that anytime we get a Ghost Starscream ahead of any other Seeker, that it's a waste of a use of whatever Seeker mold it is. Not that Ghost Starscream is really a thing in the USA it anything. It would go well with this though.

The problem with ghost Starcreams is that nylon doesn't come in clear and most non-MP transformers use a bunch of it.

I thiiiiiiiink the only nylon on Stege Starscream is the medium gray bits that form his joints.  Talking the H across his collarbone, the shoulder joints connecting his arms to his torso, the hip joints connecting his thighs to his hips, the back of his pelvis, and his heels.  If everything else could be translucent, that wouldn't be very intrusive.  

 

UPDATE: Aha, one of the light gray sprues is also nylon.  That's the backs of his thighs, his knee joints, his elbow joints, his mid-biceps, and some more shoulder work.  Probably a few more joints here and there.  But they were careful to keep it pretty minimal.  Stege budgets its engineering pretty cannily.

Good. Maybe Skywarp can get purple shoulders and guns after all.

I do hope someone will see if Ectotron will fit in the MP10 Trailer, as I saw the promo shot with the trailer OPEN, but I don't know if he'd be able to ride inside.  If not, I guess I can always fill it with Slimers.

Edit: And it looks like there's new pictures up for Optimus at tfw. The proton pack plugs into the folding gun, neat.

Are there any actual parts shared with Hot Spot or Onslaught? Or is this just kinda simmilar-looking in places?

The khaki upper arms and upper legs are straight off the CW Onslaught mold.

I do wish the shipping was faster, but if Pulse still honors the $40 with free shipping, I'm keeping the preorder with them, same reason I kept my $10 Cog and Sixgun orders. Because my cheapness overcomes my impatience most of the time.
