@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

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.

@  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.

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)

@  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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

At first I saw the thread title and thought it was a fanfic idea.

 

Somehow I see this being repurposed by a lot of people as Gobots Leader 1, especially if the pilot helmet comes off.  Is this a retool of one of the MP seekers or Leader Jetfire family of molds, or is it totally new?  I don't have either to compare to.

 

None of this tempers my serious disappointment on the cancellation of the Crossovers/Loony Tunes line.  Just because it never actually existed and I made it all up doesn't take the sting out at all.

Maybe they cancelled it as the toys kept failing the drop test off the cliff.

I have never watched Top Gun (clips I've seen make it look awful) and am not a Tom Cruise fan so this is a pretty uninspiring follow up to the Ghostbusters crossover figure for me.

It's really gonna come down to what the Robot mode looks like if I'm gonna care. Can't tell enough from the box pic.

-ZacWilliam, if the robot mode is really cool sure, if it's not that's an easy pass.

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.

Maverick will definitely be a bit more tempting for me now. I wasn't too interested in Ectotron since his vehicle mode ends up way too big compared to mainline stuff, but jetformers are always wildly out-of-scale anyway. :wtf

 

Anybody figure out what figure Maverick might be remolded from? The box art gives him a rather movie-ish look, but the only large recent movie jetformer I can think of is Starscream. :hmm

I don't really think Ectotron was remold, he just reused some of the engineering from Hot Spot.

 

Perhaps that was more hassle than it was worth here and this is an entirely new design.

 

I like it so far. It'll be interesting to see the robot mode fully, but he looks pretty cool and like he'll slide in as an original character Autobot nicely.

Studio Series Blitzwing is a possibility, but any part re-use might be pretty minimal. I think we'll have to wait to see a pic of the actual toy in robot mode.

I suppose that's possible. The movie lines aren't normally allowed to be retooled into non-movie toys (or at least it's financially unattractive for Hasbro to do so without giving money to Paramount), but Top Gun is also a Paramount movie so maybe they've done a deal here.

Given that this seems to be wings on back, cockpit chest, do they even need to reuse engineering? At this point they do that 5 times a year so could do it with their eyes closed.

They didn't even make this on purpose. One of the designers just sat down to watch Top Gun and found it in his hands afterward.

Anyway, Top Gun might not have been high on anyone's "crossovers wanted" list (though I have a T-shirt that proves it isn't entirely unconsidered) but it's certainly a well-remembered property strongly associated with a specific vehicle. Nice to see that crossover toy logo really was a harbinger of things to come.
