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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

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.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

King Nine, however, will not return.

@  -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.

@  -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.

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

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  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"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

Alright people..while it's still a work in progress, I figured I'd post some pics of what was and what is now.

Pardon the odd angles and old writings in the corners of my "what was" pictures, back when I shot these pics I was always worried someone might try to stiff people on ebay.

That being said, lets get started with what I had before I sold off about 85% of what I used to have.

These are my Gen 1 Decepticons...I eventually bought a reissue Predaking and had Octane as well, but they never ended up being photographed.

IPB Image

Sadly, it seems I accidently erased the pic of all my Autobots..but I had quite a few...some real awesome ones too.

Going in terms of the Japanese continuity, this is my Headmasters series collection...Yes, both Decepticon clones are there, but only one is viseable..not pictured however was Twincast, who I got in an incrediable deal from a member here on the boards.
IPB Image

Next up in terms of continuity would be my personal favorite, Masterforce (bad angle here, but all 3 Decepticon jr Headmasters were there)
IPB Image

Than of course would come Victory:
IPB Image

Than came Zone and Return of Convoy..not pictured here would be Sky Garry..bought him in the same deal with Twincast..almost wish I hadn't sold him and Grandus after I bought a legit Star Convoy..oh..and thats the common Dai Atlas KO you see, I won't lie.
IPB Image

Stay tuned, more on the way!

Next begins the era of the Beasts..

For starters, here is my Beast Wars collection, complete with the infamous Ravage X-9 figure.

IPB Image

Than of course comes the start of the Japanese Beast Wars, Beast Wars II:
IPB Image

Followed by Beast Wars Neo:
IPB Image

and of course concluded with the infamous Beast Machines:
IPB Image


Than as we all remember, it was back to Autobots, Decepticons and Predacons in RiD:
IPB Image

Which was the only time I was able to afford the awesome Brave Maximus..and I was lucky enough to actually get a legit God Fire Convoy Sword from a member of the boards here again...
IPB Image

Than came Armada:
IPB Image

and of course there was Unicron and his "spy forms" and the Minicons:
IPB Image

Than there was Energon...which is when I started thinking about selling my stuff, about half way through..but I still managed to rack up a few nice things:
IPB Image

and of course:
IPB Image


so that was before...now, as for where I am today....

Oh..I forgot..I also had the 2 Metal Force Convoys, but I decided to sell them recently also..I'm gonna just put the url here because the photo is so big:
http://img.photobuck...on/100_3128.jpg


That being said...I decided to cut back on collecting series and now, I base my stuff off the fact 1) I'm a huge Optimus Prime fan and 2) I really only want to spend my money on things I find of a higher quality..like Alternators, Masterpiece figures, some of the Classics, and no doubt I picked up Primus.

So, that being said, here is the first photo of my Optimus Prime (and Rodimus) collection...see if you can spot Combat Hero Optimus:
IPB Image

Here's a few more, the Vehicle based figures are starting to blend in with the animal forms of Primal - Convoy:

IPB Image

..and here are the rest of the animal based figures...before you ask why Magnaboss..well..Lio Convoy Jr is in that set:
IPB Image

My movie cast shelf...which is still being worked on:
IPB Image

This is a small cabinet I'm working on for display stuff, but in the mean time its holding The Mp 4 trailer, the over sized Gen 2 Korean Prime KO and my NY Convoy:
IPB Image

Gotta love the 2 feet of God Fire Convoy sword goodness again:
IPB Image

"Trailer park 1" (and a bag of accessories)
IPB Image

This is the other shelving unit I'm working with right now..freaking awesome thing, and I was joking with a friend about how this photo looks like its from the set of a Giant Robot Anime..also notice how two of the Kiss Play girls are riding the Jet Skis from the classics figures:
IPB Image

1st half of my Alternators...pardon the squish going on, this was taken during a test for space..and yes, I keep Classics BB and CJ with them:
IPB Image

and the second half of the Alternators collection, featuring Kiss Play..still waiting for Rumble and Ravage..grr!!..also..see if you can spot Mirage, he sticks to his name sake and is hard to spot here. icon-waspy.gif
IPB Image

and finally...trailer park 2:
IPB Image

eh..while I'm at it..may as well ad this picture, it's one of my favorites. I took this photo the day my Star Convoy arrived, and I was very excited about it..I had bought a loose KO of the figure years before and wasn't aware of it..and for years I wanted the real deal..so I lucked out..I had been planning on getting an apartment with my best friend, but as things turned out, she wasn't able to go through with it, so I had just the right amount of money put aside, and an auction for one complete with it's box was ending 3 days later...so, I won the auction, and I'm still friends with that person, so everybody wins!

I call this photo the end and the new begining:
IPB Image

and here's a pic someone helped me make of Hotrod transforming into Rodimus Prime, using the help of Big Convoy's Matrix, hehe:
IPB Image

and for Humor sake...Ultra Magnus getting told off by Optimus Prime:
IPB Image

Ok..soo..thats all my TF stuff for now...I'm sure updates will occur in time..thanks for looking!
