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

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.

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)

@  ▲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)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

So, just in case you have not tried it, the VvV Jinx blindfold looks great on the white SDCC figure. I'll try to post pics later, and I will try it on the red Jinx when she arrives. icon-ironhide.gif

I'd like to see the pics.

My unmasked Jinx just arrived and I tried but it was putting too much force on the blindfold, and I didn't want to risk it.

Found the Retaliation Ninja 3-pack on clearance for $10 today at Target. I needed more Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow figures like I need an bunghole in middle of my forehead, but the Red Ninja makes a passable 30th Slice, and I've been hankering for that sugegasa. So $10 was a good enough price to make me forget that I wasn't going to buy into the Retaliation line.

Snake-Eyes sucks since he really can't hold his katana once you remove the band keeping it there.



I just can't get over how much nicer the three-pack versions of SE and SS are than their single-packed equivalents. I really prefer the alternate deco on that SS mold, and SE's vest. A bunch of swords and guns is also more to my liking than jetpacks or weird crossbow zipline-things. Plus, savings!

Still can't find a darned G.I. Joe Trooper anywhere. But the single-packed Red Ninja is only just starting to show up here, so there's hope.

Now that I have the two three-packs, Zartan, the black CC and a Cobra Trooper, I'm pretty much good re: the figures until next March. Just want to find a Joe Trooper or two. I do have some interest in the single-packed Roadblock (he of the thing fused to his hand), mainly because I like that there's actually a place to attach his mega-launcher TO him when he's holding it. That interests me, seems like a step up from the past. But I can wait until he shows up at Ross.

I saw so much coolness at Joecon that it simultaneously renews my optimism and makes me itch to get my hands on that later stuff!

There's only one wave shipping, so the Red Ninja shows up with everybody else. I suppose you'll just have to hope you luck out when a fresh case is put out. I've personally run across both versions of the Joe Trooper, the blue one at Wal-Mart and the tan one at Target.

I may just be lucky, I had no problem getting mine on either figure. For anyone else who is trying to do this, make sure you put the band on from the underside of the popped off head.

Thanks! Jinx's pics were shot with an iPhone in the bathroom. Kinda like a lot of other females who post their pictures online. icon-fire.gif

And you should open one. I really like the red version best, but one of the cards on each was not perfect, so I opened a red and a white. They are nice figures, even though the paint on maskless Jinx makes her look like she has a bit of a stash. icon-fire.gif

Got the two ninja 3-packs today at Target for $5.98 each.

That's almost worth it for the accessories alone, but beyond worth it for the one figure out of each pack I was willing to pay for. It's like I got Kamakura and Not-Slice at a discount and also got a free Roadblock, Beachhead, SE and SS to use for parts.

It's funny, I'd originally used him for parts for a different custom... but after a bunch of anti-ninja (or anti-anything fun, really) Joe fans started bashing him on another page, I gave it another look and put him back together.

It REALLY pulls off the "hi-tech ninja" look a lot more effectively than most Night Creeper figures.
Kinda wish I'd army built it.
