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."

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.

@  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".

@  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"

Yeah, I think they're in the mechs and the mechs are huge so there's plenty of room. Instead of an aircraft, think about a tank crew: driver, gunner, loader, commander...

The rest of your complaints are just silly. Are you actually saying that there aren't mechs that had multiple pilots,

There are, but it's usually for functional reasons... like the Guntank which has a driver and a gunner, not unlike an attack helicopter with its pilot and gunner.
I could understand it if this were a more "traditional" mecha and two people are needed to operate the robots' various functionalities...
But two guys, side by side, controlling a robot via motion control?
The only fathomable reason I can think of for this piece is that it's a contrived piece of storytelling to have two pilots who JUST CAN'T GET ALONG BECAUSE THEY'RE SO DIFFERENT being forced to work together as humanity's last hope.

So hey, back on Joe....


If anyone still likes classic O-Ring stuff, community member Falcone is getting a new female buck made available and has a Kickstarter set up to help speed up the financing and production.
The sculpt is based on the female "Shooter" character that had an appearance in DD's GIJoe Declassified miniseries. There are some repaints set up for it, as well as an alternate, helmeted head sculpt for two of the seven color designs. I think it's worth backing up. 10$ (11$ internationally) pays for your preorder of the version of your choice. Check it out, spread the word:

The "Shooter" figure and its repaints, however, ARE happening. And for 10$ for a figure, you'd be nuts not to support the project!

Jinx and Dice.

I don't plan to, mainly because I don't care for the bland military-looking stuff. I prefer more sci-fi stuff. One of my favorite classic Joes is Predacon, after all.

Hisstank put up some loose pics of the first FSS figures.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
As it turns out, the head beneath Dice's mask is an Aqua-Viper Officer head with black hair. Kind of underwhelming.

I dunno about the head reuse. The eye and eyebrow shapes are very different, and I'm not convinced that it's something they could have just done with paint. To be frank, I'm also unsure the Club would be that creative given how some of these other figures have gone...

That said, the FSS figure in question gives me a Lee Majors vibe, which the original head use did not even though it has the right hair color. If the head IS reused, I actually find that pretty impressive! icon-fire.gif

As a person that hand-paints cast heads on a semi-regular basis, I say they can. The eyebrows on modern Joe figures are for the most part just painted on, it's real easy to change them up to make the figure look different. Even eyes, I managed to turn ROC Tunnel Rat's slits into actual, open eyes.

I've done the same, but it still requires painting over some amount of sculpted detail. If this is the same head and the Club is painting right over sculpted facial detail on their expensive collector figure... not so hot there. As I said before, either way it also shows a bit more creativity than the Club has put into a good portion of these figures. I don't think the Club has ever used this technique before, so it's not really "can they", it's "would/did they".

However, Dice does seem to have a bit more thought put into his design and construction than some of the others that definitely have new heads (Topside, sure-Fire). As long as they're not painting over sculpted detail I have to say it's a good thing to add to their "toolbox" and a great way to get more mileage out of some of these molds.

No, they've done it before... Their most triumphant use of an unexpected part thus far was repainting an old Liu Kang head for Dr. Venom, which involved painting the head and facial features differently to make him look less asian and more caucasian.
