"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)

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.)

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)

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)

@  ▲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)

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...

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

Heh

@  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.

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

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

Mattel has some SDCC 2019 exclusives for MOTU.

 

Mega Construx Battle Bones set (with pink armor Faker among others).

 

More articulated versions of the original MOTU figures in the form of Mini-Comic Prince Adam and He-Man.

 

https://nerdist.com/...-con-exclusive/

 

The latter is kind of a spin on MOTUC but really dialing the sculpting back to the original toys instead of updated sculpting.

 

It's kind of a weird thing, I like it.  Like this is what MOTUC did, but not quite as literal as this exclusive is.

Fascinating idea. I don't think I'm the target for this as it was the general proportions as much as the articulation that has always turned me off. The Classics line gives me exactly what I want there, but there you go.

This is a perfect SDCC offering though - not a hard-to-find-something that everybody wants to complete their collection. It will also give them a nice proof of concept. I suspect if these all sell out, they may expand the line; if they hang around for weeks or months, they'll remain a one-off.

Because this is specifically a "mini-comic" based set and that's what Adam looked like in his first mini comic appearance.

Side thing but I saw Spider-Man Far from Home and while waiting for the extra scene at the end of the credits, a 'He-Man from Mattel' copyright whatever appears along with other licensed stuff in the list.

I don't recall any Motu thing appearing in the movie, as a commercial or a toy or whatever. So just asking that when you folks watch Far from Home, let me know what Motu related material appears that I missed please?

Peter has He-Man figures.  There's a cut scene where he sells his toys to buy MJ a present.

Whaaaaat?! I didn't see that?! I know the trailers had a full action scene that wasn't included in the movie (doing your job, on vacation) but I don't remember a 'selling toys' scene when I saw it.

Maybe they were hand-me-downs from Uncle Ben. That would give them a little more weight as something to sell.

Just a follow up but the extra scenes in the trailer will supposedly be put in a Peter's To Do list as an extra mini movie. So I guess that's where the selling of the He-Man toys will be.

Was there even footage of that? I want to see!

Oh, and they can get away with this parody? Cuz it looks really really good for flash animation. I'd prefer to see the 2002 version but this is ok too.

Guess Mattel is playing a back up to the MOTU film that is reportedly set for release...at some point next year.

 

Eh, I'm not overly impressed.  And i'm not thrilled for some of the later characters who benefitted IMMENSELY from more modern design aesthetics (like Buzz Off)

Yeah, I feel like if they had done this before they ever started the Classics line they might have done well. I don't get the appeal now though. Are there people who have been waiting on the vintage sculpts "with knees" (and elbows)?

In fairness, MOTUC never had any sort of significant retail presence aside from the TRU crossover packs with DC.  These feel aimed more to a more casual audience than the hardcore audience, and there might be some merit to that if the price point is good.

Yeah these seem like they really aren't aimed completely at the same audience that's been spending tons on Classics for years. Just the fact that they are planning to sell them in actual stores hints that. The more throwbacky designs are more toy-etic too and hint at that.

-ZacWilliam, whether it succeeds at reaching a big enough Casual and Kid audience we shall see but this clearly isn't completely aimed at or counting on the old online geezers.

That's a pretty nice update of He-Man I think. I was going to say "I hope these do well at retail" but... they won't. MOTU will never escape that Joe-esque black hole. Which isn't really fair, the MOTU fandom is much more reasonable.
