@  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)

@  ▲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.

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"

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Found a good way to start off the rejuvenated Joe thread:

Joe Declassified has lots of loose pics of the next waves.

Everyone looks really good except Scarlett's face [hopefully] photographs weird. Her nose seems really big - or at least her nostrils are very prominent. Looking at most of the other female headsculpts we've gotten, Joe/Star Wars/Marvel, nobody has such defined nostrils. I'm hoping it doesn't looks quite as bad irl.

The only other slight issue I see is the increasing tendency to have jackets/vests that don't stay closed. Technoviper and Cobra Trooper both seem to have this issue as does Renegades Firefly. I'm not sure if the tabs just need to be a little longer maybe, but it's kind of annoying.

I wonder if part of the Technoviper's helmet is removeable or if it's just not quite glued on straight on this guy's figure because the forehead stripe doesn't quite line up right.

My personal favorite from the batch is the Techno-Viper; I've been wanting a new one for years now.

From there, I *might* go for that trooper, but I'd have to give him a new weapon since to me that blaster looks ridiculously over-sized.

I like Tunnel Rat, but I already have the one from the Wal-Mart two-packs last year. However, I do have a spare PIT Commando head lying around (I used Beach-Head's unmasked head for an LBC) and so I might be able to work something out with that.

Scarlett and Ripcord have nice body molds, but their heads just don't sit right with me either; Scarlett's hands also bug me, as they don't look right half-painted like that. I might use the two as custom fodder, but only if I can find some cheap repro heads.

For me, this Tunnel Rat is so utterly different than the Anniversary version they can occupy the same space (were I to do that of course).

Carded Storm Shadow at AC Toys.



It's hard to tell for sure, but it looks like he's kept all his accessories although I don't see the other black belt or the chain weapon.

Well, as far as weapons on Stormy I'm willing to lose, the chain is way up there.
Hopefully the black belt and the black backpack strap are in that lower left corner.

Yeah - why? It's fairly accurate (minus the last minute vest swap) to the cartoon allowing for "real-lifing" anyway.

You know, except for the part where they made him bald.
I'd hoped that was just a flaw with the prototype but apparently Hasbro felt there weren't enough bald black guys in Joe already.

Oh my god all those accessories with Storm Shadow oh my god so beautiful

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.

Or so my brother led me to believe (coming from him). It must just be one of IDW's comics that he referred to as such even though it must not be Renegades.

Why? They've said from day one the Joe line can't support two different aesthetics like Star Wars, and any cartoon toys will be created to fit in with the existing style.

Sadly they didn't try much to distinguish the mold from Blowtorch (the original TNT sported a different helmet and waistpiece).

It was Doc's helmet at that I believe, so I might have to swap one in myself. One of the bad things about the modern sculpts though is it's not so easy to swap crotches.

It was indeed, although because of the difference in head sizes it wouldn't work. Not that the Club itself couldn't have tried a different helmet nonetheless.
Or use a different, smaller head that can wear the helmet.

Yes, but Blowtorch's thing there is a separate belt piece. The Club could have omitted it and used a different belt instead.
