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.

8ass XÖ 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.

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

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 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.

@  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.

Hey guys, with all the Transformers coming out lately, I am wondering.  Will we get EVERY single G1 characters out for Earthrise/Kingdom??  

I know that some of the characters are carried from Siege (ie. Optimus Prime, etc).  But some others from Siege probably won't get an Earthrise/Kingdom (ie. Springer, Apeface, etc).  

To be honest, me being in my late 30's.  I've never had more than 4 Transformers, but now I am stoked to even having many in the collection that I do now.  I would LOVE to eventually get every G1 characters and maybe the Headmasters as well.


I think you may be messing up your terms.

So you know: "G1" means the entire original toyline from 1984 to 1990ish. Which includes the Headmaster toys (1987) and the years after. Not, just 84-86 as you seem to be using it.

So no, we won't get all of G1 in WFC. Not even close. We'll get most of the first two years of it and some of year theee but definitely not all.

-ZacWilliam, if you include the new 86 Studio Series we'll get closer to the complete first 3 years but still very likely not all.

I just noticed that on mine, yesterday, too.

 

I suppose at this point it shouldn't get any worse. The cracks seem like they shouldn't turn into crumbling plastic (hopefully). But it's distressing all the same.

New photos of Dirge from In Demand Toys. I hope this is the final as the off white face and colorless window look better than the metallic gray and orange.

In-Demand Toys are also asking people to like that post if you'd be interested in a further run in the UK (and maybe Europe?) as they're discussing with Hasbro UK about trying to get a production run of it made for them and it will help their case with numbers.

If you look at pic 2, it seems the undersides of the VTOLs were initially on a different plastic sprue and didn't match the tops, and then they fixed it later.  Or is ALL of that paint, yikes?

They're all (bad looking) paint on Dirge and Ramjet, so they maybe here too (unless they're tied to the black).

Thrust never gets his silver wings. :/

They were supposed to be silver / light gray. They were often miscolored. Similar to how they were white for the toy and the preproduction version of Thrust had silver instead of gray.

G1 technically spans from 1984-1999 because G1 - Beast Machines since it was in the same "universe" and the first real reboot was with Car Robots. 

 

You could call Beast Wars a soft reboot, but it was still set 300 years later in the G1 timeline.

What it comes down to is whether you are talking the G1 Toyline or the G1 Fictional Universe.

If you mean the former it's 1984 to 1990-ish with Europe holding on a year or two longer than the US.

If you mean the latter, you are talking a more nebulous concept and yeah it went to the end of BM then slept a little while but not that long really then slowly cranked back up in a number of forms and media back to full life and is unlikely to ever go away again while the property exists.


-ZacWilliam, it's really just talking about two different things.

Doesn't seem like mine have broken yet. How exactly are they breaking on you guys' copies of the mold?

Is he going to be (yet another) exclusive, or a 'regular' release?

Assuming we're talking about Thrust, he's a Target exclusive in the US. He's not getting released at all internationally as far as we know at this point, but ID toys and others are trying to convince Hasbro International to do another production run so they can actually allocate Hasbro UK some stock to make available to retailers to order.
