'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.

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

@  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)

@  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)

30 Minute Missions reminds me of Bandai doing kits of American properties to ease people into Gunpla. Between this and the Build shows, they clearly want plamo people can get into without needing tons of lore.

======

Remember the Fumina kit that was released by Figure-rise last year? It's apparently getting re released in new colours. However, in response to internal and external feedback, they have completely redesigned the runners so the connectors are mostly in areas you won't see when assembled and the few they couldn't have been made thinner. I have the original release and for something where the push was "A collector quality figurine you build!", the sprue connector layout was a mess. Given Bandai have done stuff like undergating for more expensive kits I'm surprised more care wasn't taken. But actually redoing the runners to correct it is impressive.

I really don't think Space and Flight Leo should have been P-Bandai. Maybe Flight, but there's enough unique parts to both that I could see them selling well. It's not like say, IBO, where it was 'Here's someone's Graze in custom colours'.with no real distinction (seriously, they didn't even give the McGillis Graze Ritter the second sword).

Pre-orders are up for Gundam Universe wave 1 at BBTS with a release date in July.  Price is $24.99, which is quite a fair price all things considered

Apparently there's some kind of campaign in Japan where Gundam Universe toys will come with character/MS branded exclusive Tamashii Stages for the figures. No idea if they'll replicate this outside Japan or if even buying from there will qualify for it.

So, the Legendary Gundam movie has a screenwriter now.

 

Brian K Vaughan, of Runaways, Y: The Last Man, and Saga fame.

 

Definitely got my attention with that pick.

Really hoping the movie isn't an adaptation. A bunch of people think it'll be 0079 with Hollywood actors but I can't see that working. I think the core Gundam story (lower to middle class kid gets caught up in war) can easily work in a Hollywood movie without simply repeating an existing Gundam story completely.

 

Just make sure I get a cameo. I can totally scream "IT'S A GUNDAM!!"...I mean, I do every time a HLJ parcel comes.

Huh, Brian Vaughan IS one of the best character writers in comics...I find his plotting and world building lacking, but his characters are always interesting and three-dimensional.

 

And, if his script DOES get made, I think we can bet on the plot being "young person is on the run from a large government/organization that would abuse something he has", since...that is the plot he writes.

Unexpected, certainly, but I wouldn't say insane.

 

He's done a decent amount of screenwriting for TV, including some pretty good episodes of Lost, and he's got a track record of experience with a lot of Gundam's themes in his past work.

 

There's some logic to it. It's just, you know, surprising.

Micro Wars 1 is now out. Kinda disappointed, only the torsos are built and you have to assemble the limbs Gunpla-style. They're also unpainted so you get a sticker sheet.

 

Wave 2 has also been revealed. Gouf, GM, Gundam Ground Type, 08th MS team-style hover tank and those siege tanks Ramba's forces used.

 

Be interested to see how long these last.

Just the limbs are unpainted?

 

You know what would've been nice? If the torso pieces were big enough to replace SDCS torsos, so you could give these the better arms and legs.

Just thought I'd post about this.

Gundam Throne Vier.

 

Final boss of the s1 stage play since they cut and altered a lot of stuff for time. A 4th Throne assembled by Ribbons for Ali; aside from the huge beam sabers and mention of a "Trans Am Tau", most of its functions are unknown.

Micro Wars 2 info dropping Monday. Blog teases 3 will include Zgok, Dopp and Ball. So likely a wave 1 situation where we get MP and Char colours.

Maybe Guntank or Guncannon on the EF side?

First half of episodes of Build Divers Dubbed are up on Gundam.Infos YouTube channel. While the show itself will have its issues the dub is actually decent this time! Looks like they actually got Bang Zoom Entertainment for the dub this time.
