"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.)

@  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)

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.

@  ▲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 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.

@  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)

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

It's an appealing scale, and it's easy to be far more forgiving of limited articulation and paint. The sculpting is also light years ahead of the horrid Human Alliance humans. MASK and Dino Riders hit more detailed and accurate proportions.

I wonder how big Hulkbuster IM is? He's the main draw for me at this early stage, but the IM2 3.75 inch scale figure might fit well too, despite the armour differences. That thing was nicely painted and well-articulated, and I have extras of the single version. I don't believe I own the 3 pack version, but I prefer the single design anyway. It's also closer to the movie version, thanks to the big gauntlets.

It's hard to get too psyched at that line-up just yet, but I expect Toyfair to change that. I expect wave 2 will have Vision and co. I want a large number of characters for this scale, including a lot of people who just wouldn't be done at a larger scale. Had there been more to the Guardians line I'd have definitely bought in, but just the main team and a couple of extra people wasn't enough to bring me in. They're small, they're cheap, give me some oddball choices. Swamp me with them.

So my backfilling on the Marvel Legends line has been going pretty well. Got a Ronan series Dr. Doom that is leaps and bounds better than the earlier version. It's not even a competition. Then I scored a 4 figure lot on eBay I'm quite excited about. They consisted of a packaged Stryfe (who had the Jubilee pieces and only had a minor issue with the plastic on the back of his helmet-which was easily corrected with with an Exacto knife), X-Force Wolverine, Psylocke (who may find herself repainted into Rogue if the urge strikes me), and Archangel. The good one from the Hit Monkey wave. All for $51 shipped. I would have (begrudgingly) paid that for Archangel. And having the figure in my hands, he's totally worth it. The sculpting, paint, and wings are all phenomenal. I don't have a huge draw to the character, but this figure instantly becomes one of my top 3 or 4 Legends figs. Absolutely gorgeous.

In fairness, NOBODY seriously expected Guardians to have the kind retail legs it ended up having, nonetheless, Hasbro DID get everyone essential out, including the entire core team (which some multi year toylines don't even manage to accomplish).  About the only "lacking" selections might have been Yondu, Nebula and Thanos.

I'm personally expecting more from Avengers.

 

 

Though, given all the talk of the "2.5 system" in Hasbro's promo material, I can't help but wonder:

Marvel's new Secret Wars series is supposed to be a major "thing" for them next year, with lots of cross media support.  To me, that seems like the perfect venue to expand the "2.5 system" to more Classic Marvel designs, and the multiversal arc opens up a LOT of interesting ideas in what Hasbro could make.

The Thanos Wave of Legends has the missing Batroc that should have been in the Cap wave.

I wonder where that Valkyrie that was at NYCC 2014 is going to end up.

Maybe there'll be another Avengers wave?

 

Disappointing that Spider-woman and Hellcat share Thanos parts.

Makes it easier to avoid Hellcat because I'm not familiar with her at all and I have a budget to think about.

And the only one of that wave that isn't currently on TRU.com is Storm. Granted, they haven't been up consistently-but they are there now.

 

EDIT: Check that, Magneto is not there either.

 

 

I guess my point is that I would prefer it to be a TRU exclusive as opposed to, say, the Previews BAF Puck series.

We knew about the TRU part, just not when to start looking. Of course the bummer will likely be the price. I wonder how many repack&returns we'll see of this set?
