the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word.

@  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.)

@  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)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 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)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Anyway, that had nothing to do with your original complaint about "connecting it to some completely random character", which never actually happened. Easer to make stuff up so you can complain about it though.

Big Red having Hound's head is about as much connection as Majin Zarak having Zarak's name and nothing else in common, or Attacktix Thrust being freaking dimensionally displaced Animated Waspinator (yes, I get the Beast Machines reference, but that's pretty damn weak), so I'd say you're pretty wrong there.

I wrote the Majin Zarak one and Im not fond of it at all, but the connection there was cause pre-production materials indicated MegaZarak was originally planned to the antagonist of the theatrical special, which is why the Zarak name remains. Id get rid of the German text story bit though, that was bad. Also nobody complained when Sakamoto did it.

I think the Thrust one was bad as well but the whole point of that one was that he was an amalgation of all Thrusts; Beast Machines, Generation 1, Beast Wars II, and Revenge of the Fallen.

Theres thought put into the connections. You dont have to like them (Those two are certainly my least favorite entries), but I entirely take issue with the random aspect because its objectively false.

That is literally as much connection as Big Red having Hound's head.  That's a direct visual connection, using a forgotten version of G1 Hound from the Armada opener, which is very much in line with AVP.  It was not an uneducated comment.

Jetfire is definitely gonna be Shockwave's associate from pre-Earth Cybertron that Shockwave will be retconned to be rebuilding/recreating on Earth.  


Wasn't War Within heading for a direction of smart Marvel Grimlock having died on Cybertron so half Sunbow half Leprechaun Grimlock could be built later on?

I'm not even against it. Bring on Skyfire, Starscream's science bud who died before G1.

Love how the two examples you brought up literally had no visual connection, which is entirely what the crux of your crack relies on.

They relied on the most tenuous connections possible is and was and has been my point, visual, preproduction, or otherwise.

If Majin Zarak was originally planned to be MegaZarak but was changed to be a completely unexplained monster who nonetheless shares his name for no evident reason, how is it "tenuous" to say "well, maybe he used to BE MegaZarak before becoming Majin Zarak"?

(Oh, and then Legends went and said "yeah, Majin Zarak is Headmasters Scorponok", so. Y'know. Evidently there was enough there for Sakamoto to make the same connection.)

I give.  You're going to defend your fanwank circlejerk till the end of time no matter where it gets mentioned, and pull up behind the scenes content (seriously, the mention of that MegaZarak preproduction material is a single post in 2015 here that I missed) that I honestly am not privy to nor was ever apparent in the original AVP entry, and I can think of few less fun things to do than dredging up AVP archives to counter whatever arguments you throw at me, so carry on.

AVP is always going to be remembered more for the things it did badly than the things it did well because it was a barely-supervised Facebook Q&A with virtually no editorial oversight or true Hasbro approval that was only ever really discussed anywhere outside Facebook when it did something stupid, and getting personally offended because people don't like it isn't the way to live a happy life.

I think some have missed that there's additional covers that are on the Pulse page:

https://i.shgcdn.com...uality/lighter/

Again, variant covers should never betaken as fact for what's going to happen, but, we potentially have Scorponok, Thunderwing, Ultra Magnus, Springer, and Fort Max showing up.

 

Anybody know whose silhouette that is in the first Roche cover?
