"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)

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.

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.

@  -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

So long as nobody onboard actively says that, or even alludes to it. We can at least have some tiny semblance of hope for this.

No you see, Prime Wars was accurately predicting the future quality of Game of Thrones when comparing themselves to it.

I never thought about it that way, but back then GOT was good but then things went downhill rapidly thanks to HBO giving into the wims of the showrunners and that never should of happened as people begun setting a standard for these types of shows. My standard for this He-man is going to be low, mainly due to the fact they are saying its carrying on the story of the original cartoon and as I recall, there was no real plot beyond single eps, then I wasn't a serious fan and I didn't know about things called shedules as I was just a kid! Personally, I think they are betting on the wrong horse with this project if they are planning to make it a contuination of the original series, if Mattel were smart, they would of said no to contuining on from the original and instead opt for the smarter route, called reboot, start new with a clean slate, maybe adopt the desgins of the 80s thou honestly that armour He-man wears has got to go, its so out of fashion! For the whole Adam is He-man, they should make use of what the last Cartoon did, show Adam as someone who not physically strong until he under goes the transformation into He-man!

Here's what I'm expecting:

Story and writing will be on par with GI Joe Resolute...meaning it will vaguely connect to "what you vaguely remember" from the old cartoon and comics.  So in GI joe's case, Duke and Scarlett were the pair, Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow were the rivals, and Cobra Commander was a  ruthless terrorist leader.  But for all its faults, fans DID get some great action sequences (the kind we would never see on a kids cartoon) and a menagerie of great character and vehicle designs for both sides.

 

At the very least, because they're using the same production studio as Castlevania, we'll at LEAST get better animation than the garbage we got for the Prime Wars Trilogy.

 

 

Meaning it will be hailed by vocal sections of the fandom as the greatest thing ever to be made for the franchise...regardless how mindless and hollow it actually ends up being.

That would be the most hoped for outcome yeah. :) Much like the upcoming Netflix WFC series.

Now we wait for more images and a teaser. And an idea of the voice talent they're going to get for this.

I got the feeling it won't be able to come close to fitting into those Shorts, I expect massive egos to be making up much of the baggage! Only time will tell!

Erika Scheimer, who voiced various characters on 80s He-Man and She-Ra, said in an interview that she felt comfortable working at Filmation as a lesbian and added, "Filmation was one of the gayest places in town."

 

What I'm trying to say is they should make the cartoon "in the spirit of the original one!!!" by having an ton of LGBT characters.

Nah, I meant LGBT characters as legit characters, not punchlines.  (Man-E-Faces x Ram-Man.  Ship name: MannyxRammy.  Which by the way are nicknames they already have for each other in the episode that is already super shippy.)

 

As it happens, I've been binge watching a lot of 80s He-Man lately and I agree that a lot of the fanboys do not remember what it's like if they think episodes with intense fight scenes are in the spirit of the original.   For being centered around barbarian muscle-men, He-Man is a very gentle show.  (G1 Transformers exists in a much harsher universe.)

 

I was watching an episode where He-Man is faced with a huge demon.  He defeated it by sternly lecturing it, then becoming friends with it.

Oh yes, He-Man definitely operates/should operate along the same lines of a well-written Superman - Exhaust all other options before going to the punching. He is the best at punching, and he will definitely win if he goes for that, but that doesn't mean that he likes it.

Sony still has the He-man and the Masters of the Universe film slated for March 2021, but rumors have started to circulate that they are looking to offload some projects to streaming services like Netflix.  The broad concern is the brand's relative value in pushing a major theatrical tentpole, and the sheer costs to market such a film.  Cited in the article are flops like MiB: International, which was very unlikely to recoup the enormous production and marketing costs Sony dumped into it given the response from audiences prior to release.

 

With Netflix hungry for content (and having already heavily invested in the franchise), Sony is looking to partner with Netflix to reduce risks and offload some of the costs.
