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)

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.

@  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"

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.

Seems like a good place for these...

 

Okay, so I finally got my hands on Cog, and the first thing I did -- after transforming him back and forth a bit?

 

jp5QqsV.jpg

 

Completed Fortress Maximus.

 

PLt4LAD.jpgRBRfgJR.jpg

 

It's not perfect, but the illusion more or less works.

 

ZWx27eg.jpgCSdKTqP.jpg

 

And of course, the main reason I wanted this stuff is because battleship mode just doesn't quite seem right without the guns on the tower.

 

The double-barreled cannon doesn't quite hold up as well under its own weight by the rear peg, but at least the tower provides a way to sit part of it on the ledge so you can fake it. The front peg works better, but of course, sits the whole thing back a bit.

 

UQMNW8J.jpg

 

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any good storage in base mode. They don't even sit on the center ramp very well, so it's off to the sides they go.

 

cpCMHBI.jpg

 

Cog and Cerebros look good together, sporting their guns.

 

ncRMhiu.jpg6yux9iS.jpgF1l2Se2.jpg

 

Here's a better look at the formations used for each gun.

 

4zlOL9x.jpg

 

This was the original formation, but the foot gets in the way of mounting it securely on the wrist. Works for the tower, though!

 

UNA607q.jpg

 

This is how I store the hand guns when Fort Max is in robot mode.

 

I'm surprised no one has done this before. No one taking pictures on the internet that I've been able to find, anyway. This was the first thing I thought of when I saw Cog could form modular weapons!

 

mPrdxUe.jpg

 

Sadly, it's looking like I'm going to have to return/exchange this Cog. Not only is his right hand incapable of holding either of his guns, but now this piece suddenly started popping off as I began setting up these pictures. I'm really quite disappointed, and taking him back is going to be a small pain. =\

 

I figure nail polish remover would fix the gun problem, but has this happened to anyone else? It almost looks like it snapped off. =O

 

Still, this has left me eager to see what I can pull together for Metroplex and Trypticon when Six Gun and Brunt come out!

 

----

 

On a slightly-related note: Wanted to attach the images on the board directly, but it kept turning them sideways, no matter how I turned them myself. Is there a way to fix that?

 

That was after I'd uploaded to Imgur, but when I went to my profile, none of them were there! Not the gallery, not anything! I found it through my browser history, but now I can't seem to edit it, and it's like they only exist when I'm looking at the page itself. What's even going on?

 

This has not been a good day for me and pictures. =( Not for uploading them, anyway.

Posted 06 June 2020 - 10:33 PM

So when I got Cog, the first thing I wanted to do was complete Fortress Maximus. I thought Sixgun and Metroplex would come next, but to my surprise, I found Brunt long before I ever saw Sixgun.

 

No big, because I had plans for Brunt as well, plans I don't think anyone's really realized (though Walky gave it a shot, but I don't think it was too stable). While I may think Trypticon is the best-executed of the Titans to date (not counting the non-Titan Titans, i.e. Devastator, Predaking), I know he's not quite perfect.

 

The biggest issue? That central tower.

 

The central tower always stuck out to me on the original G1 Trypticon, even though I never owned him. The tower was the biggest of the three, and capped off with that lovely orange tip, formed by Brunt's cannon when the beast was in city mode, or a central cannon in his battle station mode. Of all the weapons he was covered with, it was the one without parallel (literally, as every other type of gun was part of a pair in one way or another, but the central tower/cannon was one-of-a-kind). The thin, shorter tower on Titans Return Trypticon, even with Full-Tilt attached, just didn't quite compare.

 

So naturally, that was first and foremost what I wanted to recreate.

 

Unfortunately, Hasbro and Takara apparently didn't have the foresight I'd hoped they would, to allow Brunt to clip into the chest cannon the same way Full-Tilt does. (That is, unless there's some alternate configuration I haven't found yet which does.) You can sit Brunt there, but like Walky's, he's unstable.

 

Fortunately, there is a way to attach it that not only makes it more secure, but a big bigger as well, though this comes at a cost:

 

ePlpDwc.jpg

 

SSs8r3o.jpg

 

Put simply, Full-Tilt is the key. The downside, though, is that whereas I'd hoped Full-Tilt would get to roam free in city and battleship modes while Brunt fulfills his original role, he's sadly necessary for this to work at the moment. (Maybe someone who does 3D printing can make a new part for Brunt's pieces to plug into, like something that can plug into the back of the cannon frame that holds Full-Tilt.)

 

Now, there are different ways to go about this, depending on how tall you want the tower to be.

 

There's the simple cannon and its pivot:

 

rzmOSGV.jpg

 

My personal favorite, with Brunt's rear tank treads underneath:

 

uFKVshl.jpg

 

You can also position it to sit further back, a little closer to the other towers:

 

a4VyQcv.jpg

 

JkbzT9m.jpg

 

Or go all the way, and use Brunt's torso to add even more height:

 

P13Y11d.jpg

 

Or you can remove the treads from the equation:

 

toNAha9.jpg

 

(And if you think these look a bit weird for a tower, don't forget what the original looked like.)

 

If you keep it low and simple, then you can use the torso and/or treads for other little bits which I think fill out the city mode nicely with little mini-towers, transmitters, or whatever:

 

lX8ftbx.jpg

 

E0MXwp7.jpg

 

I like this one, as it looks like it could be either spotlights or loudspeakers:

 

045tjhz.jpg

 

lGue4WO.jpg

 

Of course, city mode is just one mode in which Brunt helps reclaim Trypticon's former glory. Then we have battle station/battleship:

 

k7OJacc.jpg

 

Brunt's arms fit nicely down near the nose of the ship:

 

QpGCerr.jpg

 

I've been using the Combaticons' HFGs to fill out where Trypticon's silver guns were on the battle station mode, but now, if you prefer...

 

ULdqhls.jpg

 

And of course, the central tower cannon:

 

xAsK7KH.jpg

 

I prefer keeping it lower in this mode, due to the pivot and all. It still shines, and frees up the other pieces for other uses.

 

That's all I've done so far. I'm toying with seeing what I can do in Trypticons saurian mode, but that's just gravy at this point. Besides, Brunt should probably have at least one mode where he can run free, right?

 

Poor Full-Tilt, though... c'mon, Shapeways or third-party folks! Free Full-Tilt!

 

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

--LBD "Nytetrayn"


Okay, so I've finally gotten around to seeing if I can complete the trinity. I managed to make decent semblances of Fortress Maximus's missing weapons from Weaponizer Cog, and I was able to restore Trypticon's central tower to prominence with Weaponizer Brunt. Last, but not least, is the most daunting challenge of all:

 

Turning Weaponizer Sixgun into a weapon to be held by Metroplex, and a tower for his city mode.

 

The results... aren't quite as good as the previous efforts, in my opinion. But maybe good enough?

 

First up: A second gun for Metroplex's robot mode.

 

DxVHdxI.jpg

 

I was hoping things would be more compact, particularly towards the back, but they didn't quite work out that way. Still, at least the size is there, in terms of length.

 

ywx9bXC.jpg

 

It's mounted further up his arm than he carries his normal gun, but the length is about the same. They are two very distinct weapons, though.

 

Next is Battle Station mode, whose results were the most disappointing to me.

 

htYjADs.jpg

 

For whatever reason, I thought Metroplex had some 5mm holes in his runway, and I'd have been happy to line them with various weapons from Sixgun, but nope. Not a single place to put one, that I saw. so I mounted everything on his arms, making the rear portion even more back-heavy with weaponry while the front end is virtually defenceless, in a manner of speaking.

 

For fun, I converted the head/chest part of Sixgun to robot mode to look like he's sort of integrated into the shoulder turret to man it.

 

Then we have the tower for city mode...

 

750GLv2.jpg

 

I tried a number of things with the towers, but again, not being able to just put the legs together compromised the results a bit. I'm not especially happy with any, but of all of them, I think the top-middle probably comes closest to the original.

 

That done, I decided that if nothing else, I can at least homage the weapon positions from the 1986 back-of-the-packaging art:

 

vooE7DN.jpg

 

One thing I am happy with?

 

yYDWOV9.jpg

 

Sixgun jetpack for Scamper!

 

Or "Sixpack Scamper" for short.

 

Well, I guess two out of three ain't bad. Maybe they'll figure they're due for a new Metroplex soon, and that one will be backwards-compatible with Weaponizer Sixgun? Only time will tell.

Looking at those pictures, I would say the weaponisers need to be upscaled to voyager class to really work with the Titan class figures that or the titan class downsized a bit more.

I don't think it would help, as for whatever reason, they just really weren't designed to work with their partners. My stuff is pure kludging, all the way. It's a miracle they work as well as they do.

That said, Fort Max's scale pretty well to the originals, as far as I can tell.
