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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

@  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)

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)

@  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.

@  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)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

The Scorponok middleman figure would look much better color-contrast-wise if his face was gray or silver or any other color different from the rest of his head.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Thoughts:

Arcee - Looks very pretty in both modes but it's not worth the sacrifice of pulling off half the vehicle and pretending it's a hoverboard. I could have tried to forgive it if it transformed to look ANYTHING like a hoverboard but that's just the back half of a car she's standing on and it's awful garbage.

Fast Track - He looks good. He looks like Fast Track. The second of those statements means he also looks pretty simple.

Skylynx - OK the bird legs look flat out dumb as posed there but absolutely everything else about him looks awesome and amazing so I'm willing to entirely forget that one nitpick. I didn't really feel the need for another Sky Lynx after CW but these pics make me want him.

Skorponok - Looks perfect and I can not own him soon enough.

-ZacWilliam, I like the fact that so little was previewed here because I REALLY hope it means that we'll see more cool new stuff Saturday (and not that Hasbro is saving everything else for a later event.)

"It's not that bad, look, he can hold it like a shield!"


There is a big difference IMO between "you can leave the back on or take it off to use as a shield and it looks good and functional either way" with CJ and "take off the back half of her car mode and pretend it's a hoverboard even though it looks entirely like just the back of a car" with arcee here.

-ZacWilliam, if it can stay on her and not make her look bad doing so I will reevaluate, but as is, one of the two is fine and she ain't it.

Wait, do you seriously just...take off half of Arcee's car mode?

She looks awful.  Damn toy is a partformer, and still ends up with a giant backpack.  The previous two Arcee toys are way better then this lazy monstrosity of engineering.

With Cliffjumper, and now Arcee, I wonder if an Earthrise designer has been taking inspiration from Gyrozetter figures? Seems like a similar approach to get the bot mode look they wanted...

Arcee has a very, very nice looking robot mode.  Ignoring the terrible pink feet and lack of differentiating her face and arms from the areas that are normally white.  I would hazard that the robot mode has a better sculpt than the T30 / LG version.

 

Now everything else about her is not good.  Between repeating the G1 design (again) when the T30 / LG figure wasn't that long ago and we're getting something similar in Cyberverse and Masterpiece and the terrible half a car as a her "hoverboard" thing.  People complained that the female Transformers sometimes don't look like they transform into anything when Arcee literally doesn't transform into anything.  She hides under it like a blanket.
