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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

@  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.

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)

@  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.

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

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

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

Huh, I wasn't expecting the Alley-Viper to come with Jungle Duke's webgear and machete... Suppose that'll help make it look less scrawny.



Sadly they're using the PoC/Resolute Alley Viper Head instead of the nicer 25th/Fury Driver head.

Really? I prefer the POC/Resolute head design myself.


The design is fine, the size unfortunately means the classic alley-viper helmet doesn't work that well for it and it's designed for the resolute trooper body mold not the 25th Snake Eyes/alley-Viper/Wraith torso.

This Retaliation Alley-Viper has a different torso, so hopefully it renders my issue null and void.

I assume they mean the Mass Effect character, not the actress.

I'd love to see how the Cover Girl head could have been made workable, let alone "quite good".

Done.

In both cases, the hair was resculpted but the face was left alone.


Sorry; still not seeing it.

IMHO, Scarlett and Helix were the only ladies from the first film who had respectable head molds.

Well, it's a casted repro of the actual AOD Ash figure that came out a few years ago. If you look in the right places you can probably find the full two-pack.
Regular Ash came with a Deadite Scout.

I don't know what it is about Campbell, but he and Harrison Ford have very hard to capture likenesses. Very few of their figures look quite right.

Has there ever been a figure that properly captured Mark Hamill's likeness?

It's really funny how time and progress changes what's acceptable in a likeness.

I LOVED the Kenner Star Wars figures in the 1980s despite being so primitive, and yet I'm a huge Han Solo fan but I literally can't make my self buy 99% of the figures they make of him nowadays because the Faces just seem really off to me.

if they ever could pull off a perfect Han, Luke or Leia head at 3 3/4 to 4 inches I'd be there in a flash. I can only imagine that likenesses are just exceptionally hard at that size or I'm sure Hasbro would have managed it.


-ZacWilliam, There have been plenty that are "OK" mind you but none that are quite 100% right... That's Han/Harrison alright.

Oh yeah - I've been waiting on him. The good news is he appears to be two to a case as well so we might be able to find him. Though as that review shows, you'll have to build up the neck a bit to make the Twins not look hunch-backed.
