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

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲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)

@  ▲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)

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)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 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?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

When Kipo is separated from her family, she must learn to navigate a peculiar and dangerous surface world full of adorable, but deadly creatures! Luckily, she won't have to do it alone.

Strange, weird and might be worth watching that about sums up my thoughts along with the fact it looks like the same style as She-ra Princesses of power, animation wise.

This is a really great show. Like Amphibia and Owl House only probably a more serious (and likely a bit better IMO).

I've been seeing a lot of buzz about this on Tumblr too, but my surgery recovery means going to bed early and that's cutting into my Netflix time pretty badly.

I dunno if it's "my new obsession", but this is a highly enjoyable cartoon.

I have to assume it's not the only one to do so, but I like how this kid show has an openly gay major character and female animals that aren't more anthropomorphized than the males.

The openly gay main character seems a bit forced to me. It wasn't until Kipo was 13 and only after she developed a close relationship did she discover these feelings. The other character is about the same age and I wonder what they went through to discover themselves given they were assumed to have been by themselves this entire time. That is a back story I want to know about.

Please no. As someone in the LGBT+ universe I don't need a superhero origin story for every character who is. I also don't need my cartoons to ham up to me how progressive they're being by doing me the favor of inclusion. The fact that gay people exist is not what needs explanation. In the real world, it's established lore that LGBT+ people are well outside of the norm and society does not understand them, and often expects them to express themselves through heteronormative modes. This is why characters in the real world don't discover their gay powers until well after puberty. Benson knows he's gay because when he has a fantasy of doing a dance number in front of a fawning crowd of cute people his age, they're boys. It's not that hard to figure out when you don't have Focus on the Family around to tell everyone otherwise.

 

Coming out stories, on the other hand, can be very meaningful things, but it's stereotype and formula for every gay character to obligatorily require one.

 

Also this show is brilliant, and my second favorite animated show after Love, Death, & Robots at the moment. It's as good as people seemed to think She-Ra was. The world is interesting and fun, the tone can do silly, adventurous, and darkly serious in even measures, the action is legit good, the humor is on point, and the music is goddamn lovely. So many moments of awesome - that fight in the finale was eight layers of beautiful.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

A 13 year old who is gay is forced, a 13 year old who is straight is normal.  

 

This is why we need more representation, so it's too commonplace to be dismissed as tokenism by people who feel there has to be a reason for not being a straight white male protagonist.

 

(I watched the first episode, didn't really grab me, but I do not begrudge others their like of it.)

 

---Dave

 

ETA: Speaking as a straight white guy, I think we as a society need more than just straight white guys (or straight white women, etc) in our entertainment.  When you're high up in the privilege stacks, even non-privileged representation 1/10th as much as in reality can feel like "they're everywhere".  We don't just need representation for the groups being represented, but also so that we get knocked out of our comfortable "everything is about me and people like me" rut.

I suppose my ignorance comes from a place of privilege. Normally when I show romantic interest in the same sex I never label it. I allow my actions and emotions to manifest my intent. Trying to put a label on my relationships is what usually kills them. So hearing someone be so blunt about it seems unnatural or forced. I would feel the same way if Kipo said she was straight, it would raise suspicion because for me people don't need to say those things.

Honestly, I was over analyzing it. From my experience when people are that forward about it they are usually fake. So it sent up a red flag and made me think "okay, what is really going on with him?". That is my own fault, I have to remember just because I'm used to something doesn't mean every else is. While I might have felt it was condescending, it was important to others that he was that direct with it.

Let's shift topics. I think Kipo's mom is actually a mute. We never seen her, besides that fake illusion deal, and she disappeared when Kipo was young. Kipo's father seems to know Hugo from the surface and Hugo knows he had a daughter but didn't know what happened to her. What if Kipo's father fell in love with a mute, had a child, but since the child appeared to be human, her father decided it was best she lived with other humans and went underground? It would explain why she is suddenly having mute powers and answer a few other questions.
