'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.

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.

"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.

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.

@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.

@  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)

@  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.

Ive thought about grabbing Beast and Gambit a couple times lately, but knowing that I would want Cyclops and others Ive missed to complete the team makes me hesitant to pull that trigger.

Blink being my favorite character had me get her right away and since I equate her more with the AoA and Exiles its not a problem. Im almost tempted to get Archangel as he was a favorite too but like Cyke he would be a temptation for more.

But hey just this year has had me buying 4 Legends with both Scarlet Spiders, Silver Sable, and Blink. There have been quite a few others Ive thought of like Cloak and Dagger, they featured in one of my first marvel comics, but I already get too many toys as is.

Yeah, I look at these in the store and $20 a pop is enough to make me second guess buying one. Even worse is just knowing I'm going to get it home, look at it for 10 minutes, take a picture to prove I have it and then it'll sit on display collecting dust in a room I rarely even go into.

 

But you put Illyana, Blink, Jubilee and Kitty in front of my face and I freaking crack!

There's a rumoured 3 pack coming out that's Scott/Jean/Logan.  A lot of people are hoping for Jim Lee Cyclops (w/ jacket), 90s Jean re-do with pony-tail/animated headsculpt, and obligatory Wolverine (probably Tiger Stripe with unmasked head).

I already have Jim Lee Cyclops (and will also be buying the MAFEX one coming up), the first 90s Jean from the Return of ML, and of course, Apocalypse-wave Tiger Stripe Wolverine, but I would definitely be into that 3-pack.  The 80th Anniversary line is shaping up pretty nicely so far.

 

Right now, all of the classic Gold/Blue-era X-Men are still pretty recent so as to not be insanely expensive, with two exceptions:  Jim Lee Cyclops and Rogue, which are only like 2 years old.  So getting into a G/B collection is pretty opportune at the moment.

I do have the Toy Biz Bishop so there is a start. Though I do see him being a tad bit more bulky than Hasbro's, there were times it seemed like Bishop did tower over quite a few of the others at time. But if there is that 3-pack coming it would be mighty tempting.

I used to think that I didn't need to replace my ToyBiz Bishop, but I'm glad that I did.  Hasbro's colours also "pop" more.

Of course, I also thought my ToyBiz X-Men Classics Cyclops didn't need an update until I got the Hasbro Jim Lee Cyclops.

 

It's just one of those things.  You don't know how much better a figure could be until you have both versions in hand and see the dramatic differences between the two.

Except Rogue and Psylocke.  Damn, those were some poopy-faced figures.

Toybiz Rogue was super ugly. Like they needed to make her ugly continually.

I found Jim Lee Cyclops quite a few times actually. It was quite surprising.

I still want a 90s animated Morph, though.  I guess 90s Banshee, too.

Either would have been a good candidate for the retro-line.  Maybe wave 2.

See Morph I would rather have AoA or Exiles because then at least its just more than a guy in a blue and gold X-Men outfit with swapable heads. That and it'd be fun to see some of that versions more Cartoonish contortions of his own face

Got out my Toy Biz AoA Sabretooth and White Sasquatch. I'll give them some credit at detail work but damn it's still ugly. And Blink looks much too tall compared to this version of Mister Creed.

I have Magneto, Cyclops, and Apocalypse.  They were solid figures.

Well, except for Magneto's translucent plastic hand.  It's made of that plastic that deteriorates over time and gets that "sticky" feel to it.

I think I may have kept it anyway because I didn't have the heart to throw it out like I did my 2012-13 era Walmart Jabba the Hutt.

I’ve still got my AoA Magneto somewhere. He was my stand-in for the “real” Magneto back in the 5” scale days, since the costume was close enough and he was just such a better toy than Toy Biz’s first attempt.

Got Bishop out from storage as well remembering I also got Toy Biz versions of AoA Weapon X, Planet Hulk Gladiator Hulk, and X-23. So glad Hasbro took out toe joints.

 

I'm cool with this Bishop. the Ball joint hips are a bit off putting and he does look a bit grittier but he's alright. Hulk Has been one of my favorites since I got him, Just wish he had come with an axe or something to go with the shield and armor.

 

Weapon X is suffereing from crazy Toy Biz face but decent for a one armed Wolvy. X-23 is mostly a good figure too but again the face is an issue. I'm tempted to grab the Wolverine or another current Hasbro version. Though do Hasbro's Lauras have the feet claws?

X-Force Laura, no.  Wolverine Laura, yes.

Wolverine Laura is an awesome figure with an awesome unmasked head.  I actually prefer it to the masked one.

 

My AoA Weapon X variant suffers from the claws curving inexplicably into a C-shape.  I boiled and straightened them years ago, but they eventually returned to the warped state.  That reminds me, I need to fix it again.

So the rest of the X-Men Caliban wave other than Jubes came in today. Not sure I'll keep everyone as I have no attachment to the Reavers and have never had much of a want for Wolverine in his skivies. But Beast is just awesome.

 

But taking out Skullbuster His Cyborg arm popped out and continues to do so easily. Considering the character could it be intentional?
