Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

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.

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.

@  ▲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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  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)

@  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"

Yup. She'll be a Lincoln Continental. Her companion will be Ford Pinto Wheelie.

Hey!  Don't knock Ford Pintos!  No, seriously, don't, the vibration may cause it to explode and kill us all...

 

Edit:  Just a contemplation, looking at Lifeline (my only experience with the mold) I do agree that it's hard to imagine how they could do a more animation-accurate version.  It must be a new mold, though, or at least a very significant remold, as there's no way this one could be faked into having a hoverboard.  The way the backpack attaches to the rest of the body just precludes it.

 

I don't think I'll spring for an Arcee, but I do have Lifeline hanging out with G2 Brawl in my 'Wreckers are whatever I feel like' display.  I figure her moral code precludes her from killing, so she hangs out with someone who doesn't have a moral code to let him deal with it.  Problem solved, so long as no one thinks about it.

Just stopped at the Target in the Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville/Iowa City, Iowa. They had 2 Earthrise Cliffjumpers on the pegs with the Siege figs. They have 1 now. I know people have said it over and over, but he sure is small. Looks fantastic, though! I would be up for a Selects Glyph and Tap-Out redeco 2-pack, for the record.

EDIT: No other Earthrise that I saw, but they have a fair amount of new Cyberverse.

The first Earthrise I've seen was the Leaders, today, and they both look really small and like a bad value in their giant boxes. I feel like they should have planned to have at least one large toy in the $50 boxes that are going to be the ones on shelves for the next several months.

I thought when I saw them, that they looked a bit... "thin", for lack of a better term. Like there wasn't much there for the price. I still think the entire line is awesome for a new or returning fan who doesn't have a half-dozen prior versions to choose from affordably, though. My apathy is most likely born of my long history and many options, rather than anything about the actual toys. Proof: I jumped to pre-order Ironworks as I hadn't seen anything similar before.

My wife found me Ironworks today (at the same Target that didn't have any when I found Red Wing) and I need to complain.

I do not army build. I try to limit my purchases as much as I can to stuff I Really want. After transforming Ironworks into "base" mode I now REALLY want like three to five more. He has so many connectors on that base, and the whole bridge you can make. Damn.

Isn't Weaponizer Fasttrack among the known Earthrise rumors?

There was a Walmart listing with an assigned EAN barcode, but it's not accessible for the public (anymore).
https://news.tfw2005...and-more-403042
 
The full list of figures that have something more substantial to them than just "my buddy who works as a janitor for Hasbro might have overheard something" goes like this:
 
Battlemaster Rung (Siege re-release): Hasbro product code number E8253, EAN barcode 5010993660155 (Walmart, Amazon Canada)
Battlemaster Slitherfang: Hasbro product code number E7148, EAN barcode 5010993660124 (Walmart, Amazon Canada)

Micromaster Astro Squad: Hasbro product code number E7153, EAN barcode 5010993660100 (Walmart, ACD Distribution, images leaked)
Micromaster Battle Squad (Siege re-release): Hasbro product code number E9838 (Walmart, ACD Distribution)
Micromaster Race Track Patrol: Hasbro product code number E7152, EAN barcode 5010993660056 (Walmart, ACD Distribution)

Deluxe Class WFC-E17 Arcee: Hasbro product code number E7159, EAN barcode 5010993648641 (Walmart, Amazon Canada, Amazon UK)
Deluxe Class WFC-E19 Quintesson Allicon: EAN barcode 5010993648634 (Walmart, Amazon Canada, Amazon UK)
Deluxe Class Fast Track: EAN barcode 5010993660063 (Walmart)
Deluxe Class Trailbreaker: EAN barcode 5010993660070 (Walmart)
Deluxe Class Sunstreaker: EAN barcode 5010993660087 (Walmart)
Deluxe Class Runamuck: EAN barcode 5010993660094 (Walmart)
Deluxe Class Airwave: Hasbro product code number E7161, EAN barcode 5010993648627 (Walmart, Amazon Canada)
Deluxe Class Smokescreen: EAN barcode 5010993648658 (Walmart)

Voyager Class Quintesson: Hasbro product code number E7165, EAN barcode 5010993660148 (Walmart, ACD Distribution)
Voyager Class Snapdragon: Hasbro product code number E7313, EAN barcode 5010993660131 (Walmart, ACD Distribution, Amazon Canada)
Voyager Class Megatron: Hasbro product code number E8204, EAN barcode 5010993695171 (ACD Distribution, Amazon Canada)

Leader Class Doubledealer: Hasbro product code number E8205, EAN barcode 5010993660117 (Walmart, Amazon Canada)

Commander Class Sky Lynx: Hasbro product code number E7671 (images leaked)

Titan Class Scorponok: Hasbro product code number E7672 (images leaked)

 

 

 

Obviously, this doesn't necessarily mean that all of these figures will be happening, as Titans Return Titan Masters Optimus Primal and Toraizer can attest.

Yes! I assumed it was a defect exclusive to mine. The leg doesn't "pop" in at all, it just rests on the peg, so any movement makes it fall off.

 

My solution has been to keep the legs clipped together.

I don't know, but... I don't think Hasbro designers sat around and thought "We need to delineate these trilogies.... so let's purposely make a common feature incompatiable!" So I don't think trilogy separation is a reason for the change.

I mean, that's kind of exactly what they did or else we wouldn't be talking about this in the first place?  I think Omega Supreme is meant to being a pretty literal bridge between the two series, and Apeface gets grandfathered-in features by virtue of one of his two distinguishing features being a Headmaster.  Snapdragon will be the same, certainly.  But I don't believe any other WFC figures retain Titan Master pegs or Prime Wars ramp connectors, at least none that jump to mind.

 

 

I think we're talking more about the reasons Hasbro designers decided to make a change.

 

It really doesn't have to be "because it's a new trilogy." Sparkasylum suggests he doesn't think so, and I'm inclined to agree.

 

For example, the designers may have decided that the "old" version didn't work for some reason. Too expensive, too persnickety, too flimsy, they now had tech to do better, whatever. They decided that improvements could be made to the design, and made the decision to make them.

THEN they took the especially-kind, didn't-have-to-do-it step of making Omega Supreme compatible with both.

That's what I've been doing with mine thus far too.  I can't see why it wouldn't stay versus the other one, so I'm assuming there is something not quite right about the size or shape of either the ball or the socket.
