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

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.

@  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.)

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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

@  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.

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

@  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.

@  -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.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

In Sweden, where GIJoe/Action Force pretty much disapeared after the 80's whas over and never to be seen again (untill next year when the movie premieres I bet) we had The Corps.

My little brother and I liked them. Especially the wierd sublines with pack-in vehicles like the punker with triple chainsaw and BUZZAW TRIKE or the skate commando thing. But, as much, we called them "Action Force" because that's what we thought they where.

Nevertheless this is.... strange. But cool... in a strange way... Uh. Take it from here, there is much wich can be said.

Didn't they recently loose the Joe liscence? I guess they decied to pick up these knockoffs to replace it. If KOs are startign to get comics it makes me wonder how long till Roadbots get their own.

Why would they want this liscense? They lose G.I. Joe and decide doing the rip off would be the best idea?

The Corps! has been around almost as long as the 3 3/4 figures have been around. They've been floating around since at least 1988, and I've got a copy of the 1992 Sears catalog which listed a massive lot of the original figures.

But as usual for manufacturer Lanard, there's never been any fanfare for their line; they've been content with simply letting the line sell itself, and thus far that has somehow managed to work.

Thing is, they overhauled the line about four years ago. All of the older molds were retired (most likely due to extreme mold degradation), and brand new molds and characters were introduced. In the process, Lanard finally introduced villains for their heroes to fight against; previously, the only time they'd done so was some space aliens for their short-lived space subset.

the skate commando thing

That's the only Corps guy whose name I ever could remember, because (like the figure itself, being a rollerblades-wearing, boomerang throwing guy in neon armor) it was utterly ridiculous-

"Hat Trick Lemonade".

Out of curiosity, is there a Corps archive where I can see this weird stuff anywhere?

As for the comic, it does look exactly like TJMD said. "We lost G. I. Joe. Okay, let's do a fake G. I. Joe."

This looks like a non sequitur to me. For the benefit of guys like me who may well be humor-deficient, could you explain this comment?

Because I'm off in the head. Heh heh.

So wait, this line was bigger than I thought and not some knockoff Walmart brand? I guess I just figured they were generic Joes instead of being a real line... like GoBots.

My bad.

I always considered The Corps! to be GI Joe ripoffs. I wonder if Devil's Due can make a comic based on them fly. It seems to me they could take everything they learned from writing GI Joe and camp it up/parody, and it might be really fun.

I got their last GI Joe book today. End of WWIII, end of the DD run. I don't know if i'll pick up the IDW book or not; if I do, it'll be the GN.

Good. Sooner DDP is out of business the better, IMO.

After wasting money buying their Voltron Omnibus which had 3 whole issues printed out of page order, and them ignoring me, they can go DIAF.
