@  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)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

@  -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)

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

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

Gonna do my absolute level best to attend this year. The Galt House Hotel is a fantastic venue, and I look forward to revisiting it.

Indeed, that hotel was gorgeous.

 

And hopefully we won't have to worry about any Garth Brooks concert overlapping at the same venue on the same weekend this time. :p

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.

Thinking about it, since RoboCon is a much smaller scaled event than BotCon was, it wouldn't necessarily need all the space that BotCon 2016 took up at the Galt House, so I wouldn't be surprised if the dealer room and panel room/custom class room get put into smaller areas of the hotel than those that BotCon 2016 had occupied. Unless, of course, RoboCon is looking to expand and go bigger for 2019 with many more vendors for a larger dealer room. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

I suppose Earthrise wave 1 is likely to source the customization class figure. What could be possible as a straight repaint?

Considering the gorilla Pretender shells came from Pretender OP/Megs sets, isn't there likely a whole bunch of TFSS Pretender Megatrons earmarked for a future class?

I can't speak for Jesse, but I'm guessing they had a bunch of those because FP commissioned their existence and it wasn't a TakaraTomy / Hasbro mold. They might not have a bunch of unpainted Megatron / Grand shells hanging around for future use.

I would very much welcome the blue Hoist, Tap-Out or Carrera, though I fear Tap-Out might be off the table.

I seem to vaguely recall somewhere that Tap-Out is going to actually appear in the official comic, so that at least raises the possibility of an official release.

Even though it would probably be simple enough to do in one's spare time outside of the custom class setting; Shattered Glass / Diaclone Ironhide from Siege Ironhide would be pretty neat too ;p

Ah right, the upcoming Valentine's Day special. I personally don't expect that to be related to Hasbro's plans given how many old toys and obscure characters IDW 2.0's creators have chosen to use.

 

However, now that I rethink it, I admit Earthrise Tap-Out does vaguely seem like a possible Hasbro Generations Selects figure.
