I didn't even try this time.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

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.

 

This new Arcee only increases my appreciation for the T30 toy. Levy what grievances you will at that toy, at least they didn't give up and make half the altmode an accessory that doesn't even look like anything except half the altmode.

Yeah, seeing as how I have the T30 version, I really don't see the need to get this figure. I'd rather a little bit of back kibble than literally removing half her altmode to "transform" her.

I like Sky Lynx, and will definitely be getting him. Scorponok and Fasttrack are also definites. Arcee...I'm likely to skip that one.

I think Arcee's robot mode is pretty great, but she has some issues obviously and I can't see Hasbro coming up with anything I like more than TRcee.

Bring on Sky Lynx and Scorponok though.

Are Skylinx's wings reuses of Predaking's, or just similarly styled? That "feathered" look is odd on Skylinx.

The Decepticons are the clear winners here. Fasttrack and Scorponok look great (although something seems off about Scorpy's ankles).

 

Arcee, on the other hand, isn't even a transformer. She just does some yoga and hides under her backpack and giant detatchable board. I respect Flame Toy's Windblade and her buttcheeks more than this because it at least is honest about just being Sexy Robot Lady without pretending to actually turn into anything.

 

Skylynx's bird mode looks dopey but he's okay aside from that


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Although I love T30 Arcee, I can still find a lot to like about this version and will definitely pick it up.  Full disclosure:  I am unapologetic Arcee fanboy. I don’t like that the whole back end of the car comes off, but I will get it just to display in robot mode. Takara Legends will be displayed for the car mode, with Leinad standing next to them both for the win  ;)

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.
