And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

King Nine, however, will not return.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 July 2020 - 03:37 PM)

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)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲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

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  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)

@  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)

Have you grown tired of every Cybertronian government being a corrupt, unsustainable mess? Do you want to see a Cybertron where devolving into endless civil war can finally be prevented? Do you just like the word council? Then this is the place for you to design what you picture as the ideal Cybertronian government!

Here's my take, starting from local government and working our way up to galactic wide government.


The Cybertronian Commonwealth: Formed after the Universe War by Optimus Primal and his comrades, this state has officially dissolved the Maximal Imperium and Predacon Alliance, replacing the two rival states with a pan-factional democracy that allows everyone's voice to be heard and accounted for. The legislative body of the Commonwealth is the Cybertronian Parliament, a grand council made up of various representatives from Cybertron and her colonies. The process to reach Parliament, however, begins on a much smaller level. Starting from the bottom...

Small territorial councils- Councils made up of local officials and politicians from a specific territory on a world. Every territory on a planet has these councils, although some function slightly differently than others. The goal of each council is to maintain the stability and prosperity of the region under it's jurisdiction, encourage cooperation between the different cities, towns, etcetera within the region, and elect a governor to represent them in the planetary House.

*On Cybertron, these councils are called Provincial Councils. Instead of a governor, the PCs elect a Lord, who then goes to the High Council. The goals and duties of a Lord and a Governor are virtually identical, however a Lord simply has more prestige due to being from Cybertron, the heart of the Commonwealth.

Houses- Made up of the various governors from across the planet who then convene to manage the economics, infrastructure, policing, etcetera of their respective colony. The goal of each House is to ensure the stability and prosperity of their colony world, as well as elect an Imperial Peace Marshall (or, in the case of Predacon-majority worlds, Emirate). The Marshalls/Emirates represent the colony in the larger Cybertronian Parliament, convening with not only each other, but also the Supreme Commander of the Commonwealth Military, and even the High Council of Cybertron.

*On Cybertron, instead of a House there is a High Council. While the High Council handles many of the same duties as any other House, it has an elevated position of power and prestige in Parliament due to its governing of Cybertron itself. Because of this, the High Council coordinates much more frequently with the Commonwealth Military and it's Supreme Commander, as well as sometimes overruling the actions of individual colonies. However, if 2/3rds of the Marshalls/Emirates in Parliament vote against the High Council's decision, the Council is forced to back down and attempt to reach a compromise, or scrap the idea altogether.

Parliament- The Parliament is made up of the Imperial Peace Marshalls/Emirates, the High Council of Cybertron, and the Supreme Commander of the Commonwealth Military. The goal of Parliament is to manage the entirety of the Commonwealth, from its economics to its defense, from its expansion to its foreign relations. Anyone in Parliament can propose a legislation, which can then be voted upon. The High Council can at times veto the proposed legislations of a colony, and even override it's House, although the Council is kept in check by the rest of Parliament, which can in turn veto the Council is a 2/3rds majority is reached. The head of the Parliament, and by extension the entire Commonwealth, is the Prime Chancellor, who is elected from within Parliament (and is usually from the High Council, although there are exceptions). The Chancellor heads the Parliament during sessions and operates mainly in the fields of defense coordination with the Military, foreign relations and trade with other galactic nations, and the economics of the Commonwealth as a whole. A Chancellor can be removed from power if the majority of Parliament votes for their impeachment, although this rarely, if ever, occurs.

Commonwealth Military- The Commonwealth Military operates mostly outside the realm of politics, instead focusing on the defense and expansion of the Commonwealth. While each major branch of the Military has it's own respective head, one of these leaders is appointed by the Prime Chancellor to become the Supreme Commander of the Commonwealth Military. The Supreme Commander serves the dual purpose of overseeing the operations of the entire Military and representing the Military in Parliament. While some question the purpose and legitimacy of a military commander being allowed a seat in Parliament, the Supreme Commander's position helps ensure that matter of expansion, defense, and internal stability are always accounted for in Commonwealth politics. As a bonus, having a seat on Parliament helps keep the rest of the government up to date on Military matters, helping to avoid any miscommunication and potentially poor decision making that could negatively effect the Military. The Supreme Commander, while subordinate to Parliament and the Chancellor, is often granted a level of independence to manage the Military as they see fit.

*Internal stability within the Commonwealth is managed by the Commonwealth Peacekeeping Agency (CPA), which was formed after the merging of the Maximal Command Security Force and the Predacon Secret Police. The CPA is a branch of the larger Commonwealth Military, but is generally granted a degree of autonomy due to their more localized nature. The CPA itself is headed by the aptly named CPA Command, which is in turn subordinate to the Supreme Commander.
