@  PlutoniumBoss : (13 June 2021 - 01:51 AM)

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

@  Telly : (13 June 2021 - 12:08 AM)

or feed him after midnight

@  wonko the sane? : (12 June 2021 - 09:00 PM)

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

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.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

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)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 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.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

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.

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.
