"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.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  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.

@  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.

@  -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)

Considering how much the FLAGG has always gone for, I kind of wish someone would just make an actually sturdy, durable version to double as a coffee table. Then its officially a piece of furniture, and furniture usually costs a chunk of money so then that price isn't so bad.

I'm kind of hoping these are new sculpts but with classic ARAH construction.  That would be neat to me, at least.

I'm not too excited about the prospect of O-ring reissues.  I already have better-looking figures of most of the characters they're likely to reissue.

Again, I think the most exciting prospects are for those characters or tools we haven't seen in 30 years.  V1 Destro or Cobra Commander or V2 Snake eyes would be VERY exciting to casual and long term collectors.  Heck, restoring the full assets for Duke might have some appeal.

I suppose I should have added the caveat of new sculpts as in "not just better sculpts of exactly the existing designs."  I mean more along the lines of Snake Eyes to Snake Eyes to Snake Eyes...  not Snake Eyes to Snake Eyes.

Better sculpt is subjective, at least the 85 Snake-Eyes can hold his weapons properly.

The official Hasbro youtube channel just put out the first three GI Joe miniseries for all regions.  Seems to have had a new remastering, I think.  Hopefully the rest of the Sunbow library will follow: https://www.youtube....YG-SWdLNFuYpBmF

The packaging is almost TOO good. Makes it harder to be as excited about a very decent base figure.

So I finally found the last piece of the puzzle to start my next Joe book.      Once it's complete,  if anyone wants to be a voluntary beta reader, I'd like input.    I also have my first one that I can send via a variety of means for beta reading, which was originally offered on Kindleworlds when it was open.  

 

 

I know maybe by now my planned set of novels has been essentially relegated to a passion project, but hey...I'm still good with it. 

 

As far as my next one, which really really kind pours salt in the shuttering of Kindleworlds, was my essential origin story for my book version of the Arashikage was going to be included...ooof. 

 

 

Anyhow, Destro now also ordered.     I will soon be having X-Force and Joe x-overs soon :D

Jada Nano Metal figures from GI Joe.  Seems a mix of Evergreen and Classic designs (not that I think there is THAT much difference between the two).  There's also vehicle 3 packs coming from Jada as well.  If these remain $1, I might pick some up.  Nice little "cheap toy" item.

Yeah, I thought the minis were fun back in the day, so I'm in for these. They've also done some Nano display/playsets for other lines, so I wonder if we'll see an HQ or something.

Going to do some painting this week. The figures from Animal Warriors of the Kingdom are swell. And the Boss Fight bat/male vampire heads snap right in perfectly.

If you're thinking about getting GI Joe Classified, Hasbro Pulse has already sold out of Destro. Target has him for pre-order.

 

Target also has a deal where you get $10 off for ordering $50 in toys, and $25 off for ordering $100 in toys. As cautious as I am financially these past several weeks, that's a pretty decent deal and I went ahead and pulled the trigger on Duke, Scarlet, Roadblock and Destro.

Dang, if they had Snake Eyes too, you'd get all five for less than the price of four. I guess we haven't actually seen the standard issue Snake Eyes though have we, only the fancy version. I would definitely jump on it otherwise.

It's worth keeping mind that Hasbro could be sneaky on us and the first Snake Eyes figure is going to end up being the original Commando version, not the 85 design.  It's not as if we won't get both designs anyway.

I'm doubting it based on the retailer listings we've seen (wave 2 looks to be mostly movie figures), but it remains a possibility.  Hasbro did "launch" the Star Wars Black series with the SDCC Boba Fett, who didn't see a full retail release until wave 2.

As far as Snake Eyes Im thinking this is similar to Captain Rex in the Black Series in the way that this will be pretty much the same figure just with out the bigger boxes extras.

Yeah, they've done that now with numerous Black Series figures (all SDCC releases I think) where the same fig shows up later without all the accessories.
