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)

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.

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.

@  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.

@  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.

Thats one spicy planet sized meatball.

No way in Hell I can justify that price to myself or my wife.

Kinda thought he'd be a Titan release after Scorponok.

Man, it's too bad you can't just throw money at it, Kickstarter-style. I could never afford it, but I'd gladly throw $5 in to help get him made.
"Here is light. You will say that it is not a living entity, but you miss the point that it is more, not less. Without occupying space, it fills the universe. It nourishes everything, yet itself feeds upon destruction. We claim to control it, but does it not perhaps cultivate us as a source of food? May it not be that all wood grows so that it can be set ablaze, and that men and women are born to kindle fires?"

My father just said he thinks it looks cool and I should go ahead and order one... and was just vague enough in his phrasing that I think, but am not 100% sure, he was offering to cover the cost...

ZacWilliam, so I'm not sure if I want to try to clarify without being rude or let it go because I don't know that I want him spending $600 to buy me Unicron even though I appreciate the thought and think it'd be awesome to own a Unicron...

For being just a bit bigger than Fort Max the price jump is pretty immense.

The Khetanna barely made the even smaller number of backers at a cheaper price.

Id love to see this made but I dont know if it will be.

I think if it's somehow opened up to Chinese collectors, it will make it.  Without them, I'd be surprised.

 

Unicron is likely a whole lot heavier and a tone more substantial.  Looks like everything about him is hefty and elaborate.

 

I weighed Grand Maximus the other day (incidentally) and I believe he was 9 pounds?  I can't remember.

Yeah, that price isn't realistic. This sucks.

That price is pretty much exactly realistic considering the size of the thing (19 lbs!).  I definitely would have preferred this to just be the next Titan at $150-200, but... I'm not saying no to a thing that stepped directly out of my fevered child mind in 1986.

Hasbro's lofty ideas are going to clash head on with the notoriously cheap fandom.

Yeah, opening it to Asia in general is the only way I can wrap my head around it happening.  I backed it, but I'm fully prepared for it to the join The Hall of Unproduced Unicrons with the other three of the past.

Haslab remains fantastically hostile to international collectors even by Hasbro's amazingly low standards.

North America only, no way to realistically avoid sales tax, limited to 5 to hug over grey importers.

It really is a big "you're not welcome here." After a year of very consistent Hasbro UK hugups.

I mean realistic for my budget. Obviously there are some who can throw the money at this thing.
