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.)

@  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)

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)

@  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.

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)

Oof-

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

"Hmph."

 

She relaxed for a moment, then threw herself forwards against the glass.

 

Spoiler
 
As the glass shattered, she hit the ground rolling. She had get as close as possible to the capsule at the center of the room before the few workers left had a chance to react... or retaliate.

When Patch practically exploded out from the glass, she had perhaps too much momentum as she rolled and was covered in glass shards. The last few workers sharply turned their heads upon hearing the sound. They seemed to panic a bit, glanced at the timer that was counting down, then took off running. Soon the room was silent except for ominous countdown.

Patch got back on her feet. The handful of workers had fled, apparently not being armed like the hunters she'd encountered earlier. Or perhaps it had more to do with the timer? She didn't like the sound of it, but she was more concerned with what lay ahead... the capsule.
 
Idly plucking shards of glass from her body as she charged ahead towards the metal capsule, her mind, warped as it was and drawn in by the sensation of such power, pondered what it was placed here to do. Was it drawing strength from the others in the glass cylinders, or was its purpose something else...? What could be gained from it... or be gained by destroying it?

It was curious. For what Patch knew of YPNR, it would seem odd for a magical thing to be so prominent in the room. If it was drawing strength from the other cylinders, it didn't seem to have cables leading directly to it.

Patch got up close to the capsule and looked it over. "Such a curious object... it would be a shame to have to resort to violence to figure out its secrets. But, I am under a bit of pressure..." She glanced up at the screen showing the countdown.

Patch was unsure how to deal with the capsule. It didn't have any visible wires or a control panel. With some thought, she decided to lift it as she doubted they planned for someone of her strength. With a heave, she pulled amongst the sounds of groaning metal. Two things happened once she ripped it from the ground. First, the capsule went flying from her hands the moment there wasn't any more resistance. Second, the power went out. Emergency generators kicked in but even as lights slowly turned back on, Patch could see in the darkness what was formerly in the capsule--a person. A woman that was slightly shorter than her with pale skin, black hair, and a plain brown dress. When she opened her eyes, they shifted from greyscale to normal color with hazel irises. As she observed Patch, the voice seemed none too pleased.

"Oh. Well, there's a fish you can toss back in the ocean."

"Hmmm. Is that so?" Patch took a moment to verify that the woman was, in fact, the source of the arcane energy she had sensed earlier.

As the woman yawned and stretched, the intense arcane aura lowered to something still present but less overt. She seemed to pause and think before asking, "And just how are you today?" She seemed to have a subtle accent that was similar to Dee.

Patch briefly frowned, not expecting to be drawn into small talk in such a situation, but decided to humor the woman nonetheless. "I am doing just fine. I hope you are as well." 

 

After a moment she asked, "Do you know where you are right now?"

The woman seemed to be caught off guard by Patch's initial response but then regained composure. Upon hearing Patch's two questions she replied, "I've certainly been better. As far as where I am, I don't know but I know I'm not farther north. Do you know where I am?" Without waiting for a response, she started walking around. She was barefoot but didn't seem bothered by anything on the floor.

With equal parts caution and curiosity, Patch followed along behind the woman. "If you don't know where you are, I'm afraid that makes two of us. Though... I do suspect I know who controls this facility."

"Oh?" The woman stopped and arched eyebrow. "By your comment, it seems to imply that that's important. Funny, I thought they just left. Obviously the ones in control aren't the ones in glass cages suffocating." She tapped her index finger to her lip as she thought, and then said, "Drowning. There's water in those. I always get those two mixed up."

"Hm. Very well." She paused for a moment, then pulled back the hood of her cloak, fully revealing her face. "If you'll let me be direct for a moment. I have a long-standing grudge against the people running this place. I didn't arrive here willingly, but now that I'm here, I intend to do two things: find my way out, and cause as much damage as possible while doing so. So, I wonder. What do you plan to do?"

As far as Patch could tell, the exit was obvious as it where the workers ran when she broke out her capsule. Looking around, she did see five other capsules with people in them. Three of which, had something akin to an oxygen mask on and were struggling ineffectually. The woman picked up a handful of glass shards and started to walk toward the exit.
