"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)

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)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲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

Another Qman/Enlighten set from Wish.  Most of the components had Enlighten instructions, which is a shame, since the attempts at English naming on Qman instructions can be amusing (not-Long Haul is Dumpers).  There's so much kibble that the chestplate, gun, and pelvis got to be a seventh vehicle, called Cannon.

 

Piece quality a bit lower than usual for Qman, the gun in particular has trouble holding together.  11" tall, and not too bad a deal for $29 shipped.

So no one else seen the stuff for the Super Mario sets? Looks like Mario has some new brick heads like figure but more stylized in Marios look but his eyes, mouth, and chest have displays in color that interact with Bluetooth pieces in the set which are like self built levels including enemies like Goomba, Piranha Plants, and Bowser Jr. It shows kids running through their level with Mario and his displays reacting with a timer running down, coin counter, and burning as he hits lava. Its not the best look to me level wise but the characters each look pretty good... outside of Mario himself.

Honestly, as a toy concept it's pretty interesting. Not something I'll be getting myself, but I'm interested in seeing where it goes.

The actual sets/baddies, from what we can see, look fine and pretty much exactly what I expected. It's only Electronic Mario and the play-pattern that were a surprise.

Honestly while yes I personally would have preferred regular mini-figures, it does look like it could be a very fun play-pattern for kids and an interesting way to simulate video game with lego sets.

My biggest question is the price.That Mario looks like a $25-$30 thing to me without any bricks. Are the sets all gonna be pricey, or will cheaper ones come with a minifigure stand in?

-ZacWilliam, really really wants a Mario minifigure bling bag wave.

You realize at some point now someone is going to rig one of these into a huge recreation of World 1-1 with a Mindstorms brick and power functions. In fact, I would be amazed if there aren't multiple people preparing for it right now.

Doing the great clean-out and reassessment of my life, and have decided to part with my minifig display cases.

 

Suggestions?

Sure, I know a 6-yo, but he plays with lego, so displays aren't going to interest him.

 

16-figure cases have their feet.

2 red, 2 blue, 2 yellow

 

8 figure cases: 2 red, 2 blue, 2 yellow, 2 black, 2 purple, 2 pinkish-purple

A tale of two Thunder Raider's and why I have a ton of issues with the new one

First I am not a Ninjago fan BUT I do like some of the vehicles if you notice the TR v1 (first one) is piloted by space marines

Second the original one (v1) is on the left and the new one (v2) is on the right

 

100_3941.JPG 100_3943.JPG

 

Now lets get to some of my reason why v1 is better

1: First the front treads on v2 while nice and big there a lot more lose floppy the gearing system on them suck

 

2: The over all look of v1 is better by not having more noticeable repeating parts like v2 is

 

3: Sticker work looks better on v1

 

4: Bigger does not mean better the robot mode despite having a higher parts count means the over complicated joint system gets in the way of articulation of the mech unit

 

3h.JPG

5: These clear blue pieces on v2 are stupid and add nothing to the build

 

 

All in all I think the original Thunder Raider is better, its better constricted and does not feel as flimsy and has more features like the air brake system on the back end of the v1.
