'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I shot the sheriff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 July 2020 - 04:24 PM)

han wasn't even in the movie until later

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 July 2020 - 04:23 PM)

the stormtroopers shot first

@  Sabrblade : (14 July 2020 - 03:33 PM)

Maclunkey

@  Paladin : (14 July 2020 - 06:18 AM)

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. 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 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)

*looks up the Gustav Karl on the Gundam wiki*

 

...That thing's a mass-produced unit? :o

 

Well it was originally from "Hathaway's Flash".  All the MS's from that are pretty damn overpowered, culminating with the Xi and Penelope.

 

There is a reason that MS's were shrunk after that, well besides the issues with the kits that necessitated the size change in the story.

I am excited for this.  Hathaway's Flash has really needed an animated adaption considering how important it is in the timeline, and it has some really interesting MS's in it too.

 

I wonder how much it will be different from the original novel.  The novel was a direct sequel to the CCA novel, and that meant there were already some things that were a bit divergent from the CCA movie to start with.

Wow. The Base Jabber in the first 30 seconds looks like Ray Smuckles making a motorcycle jump over Mount Everest. Not promising.

 

More ominously, though, apparently the writer did... Build Divers.

 

That's a bad sign.

Built Figure-riseMechanics Haro. This is a really nice kit, understandably outclassing the smaller ones released on back of Build Divers. The newly Okawara designed inner frame is goofy but Bandai have delivered a great representation of the Gundam mascot.

You actually get an alternate transparent shell to display the inner frame and the kit can add a separately sold LED unit. Figure-rise really seem to be Bandai's A game.

Okay I don't even know what a gunkblam is, but oh my. Stumbled across a bunch of these little guys yesterday and they are so cute and so fun and so cheap. This first guy is a little rough around the edges (literally hahahahahaetc) but half way through I bought some remarkable sprue-murderers and now every cut is a perfect work of art that feels like being hugged by a bubblegum-scented puppy dog. Like, I just want to cut things off sprues all day.

Does anyone have advice on where to go next if I want to follow this somewhere? (I will of course start perusing this thread I never cared about before, and perhaps discover such advice within.)

Another kit for Narrative. It's shown up in trailers but the exact name is a bit of a spoiler.

If you're just going for minimal work, may I suggest getting the panel-lining Gundam Markers? Black will work for general use, but you can also grab the Gray and Brown ones to make the lining more subtle: gray for light-cool color plastic, brown for warms, and black for darks.

 

Oh, also get a hard rubber eraser - preferably one with sharp corners. You can use it to erase the excess ink from the panel lines to clean up your work.

I honestly don't remember seeing it. Who used it? I tuned out during most of the final arc about Sarah so maybe I missed it.

Edit: Okay looked it up. Man totally missed that it was one of Ogre's guys. That's cool.

Figuring out what to pick as my first post-tiny-bear kit just became a lot easier when I discovered that these dudes have a whole bunch of stuff in 7-Eleven decoes. This hobby and I are going to get along just fine. <3
