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.)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

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.

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

@  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"

If I thought discontinuing the BAF process would lower the price of ML figures, I would be for it.  I'd rather buy BAF whole as deluxe figures than feel compelled to buy another Spidey variant or D-list character.

 

But since that's not likely going to happen, I guess I'll just keep getting both.  P.O.'ed Kingpin because I want him on the vintage card, even though the deco isn't 90s Spider-Man.

 

And also since I ended up using my BAF Kingpin for Farouk's body, I may be compelled to open him some day.  Until then, I'll keep my Face Off Kingpin from ToyBiz in my Spider-Villain shelf.

OMG How did I never think of using the Kingpin Body for the Shadow Kings head. :doh

 

But I do only have a Leg of Kingpin so I guess it never was kind of a thing I was going for anyways. But with all the Spiders I've gotten recently I do need to offset it with some good villains..... The downside is I really have no love for many of Spidey's Villains classic appearances. I'd like a classic Green Goblin or Hobgoblin, Sandman, and maybe Scorpion, but others like Doc Ock, Rhino, Chameleon and more just do nothing for me. Though Sandman may be me wanting to have him with Sable and a Wildpack army builder figure. Currently the only three Spider villains I've got have been the Demogoblin BaF which I grabbed mostly off eBay, Doppelganger, and Superior Octopus. But If they did a 90's toon Ock and Vulture I'd be down for that.

 

As it is, without rereleases of some of them I'll settle for the new releases of Kingpin and Venom. Still have a few Spider's I need yet to collect too, including a normal Pete :D  And either Classic or the White suit for 2099.

That is the intended purpose of the head, even if it's not officially documented anywhere.  It was one of those "bonus" accessories, in the same vein as the previous Onslaught head inclusion with Rogue, or the Apocalypse claw weapon inclusion with Deluxe Archangel.

 

Even more of a secret "hack" though, is commandeering the BAF Monster Venom's hands to complete the Shadow King look.

I went after Spidey, Gwen, and Goblin. That Pete doesnt do it for me. If the glasses are removable on the normal head maybe, but on that card Id want to see a Pete based on the 90s cartoon with the polo going on :D

I should get classic Electro, but like classic Ock, I just am not fond of the excessive lightning mask and would rather see a modern version of Max with the bolt patterns etched on his face. DD is kinda tempting as I always was a sucker for heroes with over the top armored suits in the era. If I saw an affordable Knightfall AzBatman that was comparable to a ML figure Id be all over it.

But AoA Apocalypse is purchased no buts about it. Besides being an AoA fanboy, I could definitely use the extra head to finally complete the BaF version somewhat. But admittedly the Shadow Kings head does look interesting on it for now.

War Machine is tempting mainly for the effects parts. Classic WM is cool on itself but Im not trying to start an Iron Man Armory. I almost went down that rabbit hole with Endgame Rescue.

Im actually more curious as to when the Strong Guy wave is now. I really hope its late in the year now. There is way too much going on in September right now.

I initially passed on Peter, myself as even though I know the glasses are the classic comic book design, I feel like it makes the figure look like he'd be hanging outside kiddie parks in a van.

 

Then I had the thought that I might be able to use my Peter head from the MJ two-pack and that was enough to sell me on it.  If the head doesn't fit, then I guess that will be that.

 

For the retro series, I'm only planning to open Peter and Gwen.  Maybe a second Spider-Man, but I've already got Gobby and Electro so they'll be staying MOC on the wall with my retro-X-men.  Basically, if the figure was an original release, it stays MOC.  If it's just a figure on a retro card, then it gets opened.

 

It's why I have Cyclops, Iceman, Storm, Silver Samurai, and Deadpool all still on their cards, but I opened Dazzler and Wolverine with no hesitation.  I did go back and get doubles of Silver Samurai, Storm, and Iceman, though.

I only ordered the Pete. Why? Because I'm trying to limit my ML figure buying to mostly Avengers/Hulk characters and when I saw that Pete I thought it'd be a great base for 90's leather jacketed Avengers. Figure I'll put a Black Knight head on it and see what I think.

-ZacWilliam, I would have bought Moon Knight probably if the release had made that possible.

Preorders for the Deadpool wave came up online. Mostly sold out already on Pulse though. So confirmed wave is now Deadpool in Blue X-men Uniform, Pirate Deadpool, Shiklah (Deadpools Vampire Queen Wife I believe?) with a Landshark(?!), Black Tom Cassidy, Sunspot, Warpath, and Maverick. BaF is 90's X-Factor Strong Guy.

 

I know most of that was pretty much known but Shiklah and Landshark was an interesting choice. I'm buying the full wave mainly to get Strong Guy but I'll admit I'm actually wanting the majority of this one. Blue Pool and Shiklah are probably the only two I'm really thinking of reselling later. Maverick squeaks by just by looking cool. But I will take the Landshark! Most of the others I still need for the various X-teams and Pirate Deadpool is just yes.If I'm to actually own a Deadpool Legends figure it might as well be Pirate Pool

Shiklah could almost be a M:tG characters sister the way she looks. Or one redco and slight retool away from a classic Storm. Has Hasbro done Storms 1st appearance look before?

I PO'ed everyone except the Deadpools and Shiklah.  I've got a shelf that's split largely between Wolverine variant and Deadpool variant overflow so the Pirate Deadpool will eventually have a home.  I already have the previous release of blue Deadpool, but I guess he can be replaced.

 

No idea where I'd put Shiklah.  She doesn't really qualify as an X-baddy.  More like Marvel Monsters, of which I have no interest.

If anything gets me to buy her it will be the Guido piece and the Gwenpool shark.  If I were to find her on sale, that would be the trifecta.

 

Maybe since the moulding is largely there, we can get a deluxe release of AoA Guido with the cybernetic arm.  Cuz I mean, what else can you remould out of him?

I had preordered the AoA line through Targets deal, then Target pulled some weird deal with the order and I ended up only getting AoA Sunfire.    Got the rest at Walmart. 

 

I also got the Deluxe Black Widow and used the stand for a discounted Cannonball (the blast effects give a "just took off" look).    90's Sunfire and Warpath will help my X-Force line-up. 

 

I'm tempted on getting AoA Apoc....I think that's one of his better costume iterations.
