Hey everybody! I wanted to announce that Sarahthecutevixen is our newest addition to the Allspark staff. She's primarily looking over discord stuff, but I wanted to make sure she got a welcome over here as well.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

Bass XO has no known weaknesses.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Base XO is definitely unstoppable.

@  Donocropolis : (07 June 2021 - 04:30 PM)

What about magnets? No one knows how they work or what they can do.

@  tigerhawk : (24 May 2021 - 07:42 AM)

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

Wonder Festival announcements were a bit heavier on articulated figures than I expected.

Like, I can't say I expected to see this in 2019:

DP5TqrA.jpg

Robot model kits from Raijin-oh, which doesn't seem like a big name series:

DCgHDzV.jpg

9YX4yfG.jpg

There were still a bunch of not-so-surprising ones like more Kancolle.

Not sure if this guy was expected:

ePKhtdL.jpg

On a more personal note,

tsY4Vjp.jpg

VYYgoeS.jpg

Kinda hurts that they announced two Kadokawa LN protagonists voiced by Aoi Yuuki, but not the one I actually want.

I already listed the Fate ones in the Grand Order thread.

Isn't Kill la Kill being mined for nostalgia because Trigger are hard up for money?

I mean we're apparently getting 1/1 figurines of Akane and Rikka.

Hard up as in "We want to make it RAIN money" or actually having fallen on hard times? I doubt it's the latter, since Aniplex probably took the brunt of the FRANXX cost and they just had a hit with GRIDMAN.

 

The 1/1s almost always get made for series that capture the zeitgeist.

 

 

but not the one I actually want.

 

Nobody will ever give you Kino.

 

Actually though in terms of design I don't understand why anybody would want a Boogiepop figma.

The toy version of the Star☆Twinkle PreCure Rhythm Scope is just a giant kaleidoscope shaped thing that makes noises and plays bits of the ED. I genuinely thought it would also be a real kaleidoscope because it seems very fitting for the theme. I mean, it would be unique in the toy marketplace too. Nobody seems to make many kaleidoscopes anymore.

 

I've never been so disappointed in a toy I wasn't even going to get in my whole life.

A longtime friend of mine was in Japan last week and he found two more of these little cuties - one of which was a WonFes 2018 exclusive still being sold at an official Kotobukiya store. So now my Gourai squad has become a five-person team. :D

Keep filling out those NXEDGE surveys. Shortlist is interesting.

Various Gundam Sentinel designs, Rebuild Evas and some misc Gundams (Double X, Moon, V2, Crossbones, G-Self). Also I believe Dunbine, main of FRANXX and Ultraman. The Ultraman prototype they've shown looks good so here's hoping.

I keep suggesting stuff like Dai Zyujin, Metal Sonic, Grand Charion, Tetsujin 28 and Mazinger Z.

If NXEdges are the same height as Figuarts Mario, it may be the right line to bring Sonic characters into where they can maintain Sonic's series-accurate proportions without compromising durability.

Don't think Bandai would go for it, sadly. Sonic isn't nearly as popular in Japan as he is in the West. Series they've done so far.

 

Zeta Gundam (1)

Gundam Sentinel (2)

Gundam: Beltochika's Children (2)

Gundam SEED Destiny (3, 4 if you count the Strike Freedom repaint)

Gundam SEED Astray (3)

Gundam Unicorn (2)

Gundam 00 (3)

Crossbone Gundam (2)

Gundam IBO (3)

Mazinkaiser (1)

GaoGaiGar (1)

Megaman X (2)

Digimon (3)

Evangelion (4)

Rebuild of Evangelion (4)

Mashin Wataru (5)

Code Geass (1)

 

There is the factor that based on some info NXEDGE do well in Hong Kong, with Bandai apparently now targeting that region more. The Wataru focus also has something to do with Wataru not selling as well as hoped in RD form so they shunted it over to a cheaper line.

 

To be honest with the line being focused on mecha/robots/androids I figured Metal Sonic would fit in well with the line's style. Too many Sonic figures look ugly when they add articulation but Metal is already designed with it in mind. Give him maybe jet engine and laser effect parts and he could look pretty sweet on a base hovering.

MegaHouse Acti-builder Gridman complete set arrived....oh dear.

 

There are two versions of this being released, one by MegaHouse and the other by GoodSmile. I have several MH fixed pose figurines so was willing to give this a shot. The results are not impressive. Gridman himself has fairly muddy paint and the support vehicles have a thinly applied black wash which comes off as half done rather than accenting the detail. You can also combine the support vehicles into their non-Gridman combination but the Goodsmile one looks way better. Some assembly is required, mostly removing panels and cables from kit runners.

 

The box has a flap which reveals a window view of the set. You also get some trading cards of the 5 characters but these are tiny one sided things printed on cheap card and really not worth keeping

Anyone know any good proxy services? There's an exclusive Dragon Ball Adverge set based on the Broly movie coming from P-Bandai. Tried numerous times asking Nippon Yasan if they'll take orders for it. The pre-order page on Bandai's end is live but N-Y are being very unhelpful. Given there's a limited order window, hoping there's other services which can actually help.

Have you tried CDJ's proxy service? I've only used it a few times but it worked out pretty well (even if it costs more than I thought it would).

The latest Symphogear Acryl stands are all wearing Chinese style dresses. I wonder if this is an indication of anything coming from XV or just a bit of fun. I can't tell if Maria is holding something or she just looks like she should be.

What's the best means of getting Tamashii Nations Tokyo exclusives? They're doing a recolour of the NXEDGE Style Hi-Nu Gundam I'd like to buy given I'm a completist. Nippon Yasan are proving useless (still reply to my emails now with "Thanks for contacting us. We look forward to hearing from you!")
