"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)

My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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)

@  ▲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)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  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)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Dake: I got the set from BBTS.

 

Strafe: I almost had a heart attack. For some reason when I saw your picture I assumed it was a promo shot for the upcoming 4th wave of Marvel/Avengers Infinite figures. They're releasing Star-Lord, Drax, and Rocket/Groot again so I was hoping these were new figures despite the rumors of the three-pack individual releases. But I see now they're the Legends figures.

 

*sigh*

I felt guilty for all of two seconds, but that was quickly obliterated by the notion that my crappy photography was misconstrued briefly for something official.

And now I dance the dance of the happy.

Except for the torso, yeah. I've never felt a figure whose limbs and head were as flexible as this one. I'm really disappointed. He looks great, but that's about it.

Wow, that's not reassuring; sounds like he might end up a perpetual leaner down the line if he isn't posed properly. And this was the only character in the GotG Legends line that I was interested in, too...

I saw one Black Widow and one Black Cat ever. I really wish they'd do something to even those out for people. The shelves are freaking choked with Spider-Men.

 

I have no interest in the Iron Man figure it comes with, so if anyone has the accompanying BAF Groot leg and isn't already using it to complete Groot, I have some Earth dollars set aside in my Paypal account with your name on them. It's the final Groot piece that I need!

I just want Rich. Maybe Draxtista.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Small continuation - I really dunno why they gave us Stark, he didn't stick around with the team for very long. I can understand why they might not offer up Ronan, but come on. No Nebula?

Would two females in an assortment be ruinous?

Two women in one wave of a superhero line would give everyone vaginas, every toy maker and store owner knows that. That's why they work to protect us.

 

(And yes, I mean it would give female consumers an extra vagina. No one gets out unscathed)

Yeah, what the crap is up with that? My Nova's arm was tortured and twisted like a prisoner of war. I haven't seen such crappy material and such crappy in-box posing since before Mattel abandoned selling DC Classics in stores in favor of their online pyramid scheme.

Because Stark is the Bumblebee/Batman/Emmet/Snake Eyes of Marvel Comics. Other than Spider-Man. :p

 

Also... man, Nova looks really good there. Does the gummy plastic extend to the joints, making it feel like they'll stick together and eventually tear off from just posing him?

This new Nova figure bugs me, but to a lesser extent than the first MU one.

 

Take away his red helmet crest, and then see how far apart his eyes are.

 

One of those little things that you can't unsee.

I'm not totally sure what people are referring to with the gummy plastic. All of the figures in this wave, including Nova, feel solid and have nice, tight joints. I'm not sure if that's abnormal, or what. They have a little give if you try and bend them a little, but I'd prefer that to having them snap. He's an awesome figure. The one part that does feel a bit on the flimsy side are the small pieces holding his pauldrons in place.
