"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. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Patch : (11 July 2020 - 06:17 PM)

My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

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

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.

@  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.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

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


@  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)


@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)


@  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...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)


@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

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

Here at the Allspark, we are very concerned with trying to ensure that people can use the BST forum with confidence and not be ripped off. At the same time it is important that everyone understands that the Allspark bears no final responsibility for the results of transactions which take place here. Private sales between individual users are ultimately at your own risk, and so it's good for everyone to make sure they are practicing good habits online buying and selling. We can sometimes help move things along, but provide no legal or monetary protection - merely a forum for buyers to find sellers and vice-versa.


This is where you can find the trading track record of most traders here. If you make a deal using Allspark BST, PLEASE, Leave Feedback to help the community, and let everyone know how good or bad a certain trader is.


Making a deal with someone you haven't seen around here before? Do your research. Ask for Trade references or Ebay Feedback. Check them out. If someone is new here, and you have trading experience, you are FULLY ENTITLED TO ASK THEM TO SEND FIRST IN THE DEAL. It is your right as an established trader to protect yourself. Any rational trader will not mind sending first if they are new here. It is common practice as well as common sense. If they do have a problem with it, you may want to steer clear of them. No Deal, no matter how good, is worth losing your stuff over.


Sometimes to mail gets held up. If you live in the same country, don't start worrying until 2 weeks have passed. If your package is crossing a border, wait 3. If it's crossing an ocean, wait 4 or more. Usually this will not be a problem, but it DOES happen. So please, try to be understanding.


Of course, being understanding has its limits. If someone is being lazy about sending out your goods, don't be afraid to drop the hammer. If you made a Deal on Friday the 13th, and by Friday the 20th they still haven't shipped, give 'em hell.

(Unless they let you know in advance it would be late.)

If they're still being lazy, post a warning here that "X" Trader is being a lazy trader. Don't be afraid to use your rights as a trader to get your goods moving. You paid for them, fair and square. You deserve prompt service.


Communication is important. VERY Important.

Try to answer your trade e-mails promptly. Waiting for word on your items can be nerve racking, as I'm sure you all know. Be Kind to your fellow traders, they'll remember it. Not only does this make trading easier, but you can make a lot of friends as well.


If you are positive you have been scammed, You can do 1 of 2 things. E-mail the Mod here quietly, and present your case. Or 2, you can post a message on the board giving a final warning to the Trader in question. Give them 3 days to respond and defend themselves. If they do not, spill your guts and let everyone know what happened and why they suck.


Examine your toys carefully. Make sure they are in the condition you have promised them to be. This saves a lot of headaches and arguments, and all it takes is a few seconds.

If you don't know what parts a toy should have to be complete, don't be afraid to ask here, or check out

TFwiki.net or TFU.info which are good resources for finding pics and lists of parts for figures.


Keep your shipping receipts, and receipts for ,oney orders. They may come in handy if you need to prove you shipped something.

If you don't have packing peanuts or air bags, use Newspaper to pack your items.

When shipping a toy with removable parts (Guns, Headmasters, Swords, Fists, etc) Put all the parts that can be removed from the body in a Ziploc bag, and tape the Bag to the side of the box. It makes sure things don't get lost

If shipping Instructions, put them in an envelope, and tape that to the inside of the box.


If at any point you make the threat of legal action in these forums, you waive the right of any assistance offered by The Allspark. From that point on you will not get any help from Mods or Admins regarding your trade(s). If you make such threats, the matter is now between your attorney and the person you are trading with, so unless you fully intend to follow through with legal action, it is not advisable to make such threats. At that point, The Allspark will not assist you in any way -- NO EXCEPTIONS.
