the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

@  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.)

@  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.

There was literally a hole in the toy section where the Star Wars stuff used to be: Completely cleaned out.

 

 

Was there a hole from it selling or a hole from it not having been stocked - because that's what mine was. :D

The Walmart I went to had a big cardboard thing set up where the Marvel 80th Anniversary stuff used to be until they clearanced it all into oblivion and left the space completely empty for the past three weeks or so.

It was also the only Star Wars stuff they had aside from some Black Series that's off in the Clearance section :p

I don't understand how Force Friday is still a thing.  People still get THAT worked up about Star Wars toys?  

Collectors.  Largely because we are inpatient and needy.

 

I understand what Hasbro and Disney are pushing for...but at this point any weight it might have had is gone.  Consumers largely don't know or care, Store level employees have NEVER cared about launch events.  They only time I actually saw something out for Force Friday was in 2015, and my local store didn't even get a full spread of what was available (especially store exclusives).

 

I'm putting a lot of this on Disney's absurd need for secrecy.  I really don't think Hasbro would have cared to rollout the same wave a couple months ago given how few "spoilers" are actually present.

There were two episode 9 branded plastic lightsabers in the main toy section, and in their display box a single black series stormtrooper and a couple of the new OT figures.

They were actually cleaned out.

Hit Target around 9am yesterday after dropping the kids at school. The hard core collectors had had an hour to get in and out. They had left:
1 Vintage Collection Poe in Xwing Uniform
1 White Box RoS Rey
1 Black Series Jawa
1 Black Series Sith Trooper
Lots of the new Galaxy figures (they look cool and cartoony and more kid friendly, but I absolutely can't start collecting another format of SW figures at this point.)
All the Funco Pop and Lego Sets and Lightsabers you could want.
I didn't see anything I really wanted.

Went to Walmart in the evening for my Bluestreak and took a look there.They had a space in the toy isle and a big SW display in the main isle. What was left:
Lots of Galaxy figures and Lightsabers
a few of the Fallen Order Black Series figures
2 Vintage Collection Zorii Bliss
2 Vintage Collction RoS Rey
2 Vintage Collection Poe in X-wing Uniform
3,000,000,000 Vintage Collection Lando in Skiff Disguise.

I bought Zorii cause she's someone new. She's ok, but I wish she reminded me a little less of Aura Singe and that shape-changer lady from Attack of the Clones.

-ZacWilliam, Lando in skiff disguise was a favorite of mine as a kid, but I wanted someone new and wow are those gonna be hanging around the store for awhile apparently...

I saw the Jabba's Palace thing at Walmart, and even though I don't buy SW toys anymore, this one gave me pause.

If it's still there in the coming weeks, I may cave and buy it for a shelf to feature all the Jabba goons that I have.

Conversely, it may also be a good time to sell off all of the Jabba goons that I have.  The package art features Ephant Mon, and it's been a hot minute since that dude was out a retail.

Yeah, and thanks to the Barge especially, prices on those rarer Jabba palace denizens have picked back up.

 

I'll probably snag the playset myself, even if I don't currently have a spot for it and all my Jabba stuff is on the barge or skiffs.

was it just a big black cube thing? thats what mine had, and it looked pretty full of figures and some kind of lightsabers i think. i dont really care about star wars toys (hence my never posting in this thread) so i didnt pay attention. the one in my store had it with the halloween stuff though

 

I have never seen a Skiff Lando in a store. I had to order mine for pickup.

Went to see what Target had the day after. They split everything between an endcap, the regular Star Wars toys section, and a promotional island near the front of the store (which is where most of the stuff was). Predictably the 3.75" stuff was cleaned out save for a single Poe (and the old Snoke and Reys), 6" had a lot of Reys and Jawas but also a few of the video game guys and a Stormtrooper, and seemingly nobody's interested in the new 5" stuff. Which is kind of a shame since they do look rather nice, and that Droid 3-Pack is tempting as hell.

Walmart in Hadley never put up a display, but they tend to be terrible with action figures. The Target across the street was cleaned out of everything except for the Galaxy of Adventures line and some Funkos.

I went to two Walmarts and a Target Saturday.  Everything that interested me was pretty well cleaned out.  I was hoping to find a Vintage Collection Knight of Ren, but I found a whole lot of Undercover Landos.  So many Landos.  I bought one and a Pilot Luke.

Found the Black Series Mandalorian at the grocery store and couldn't help myself.

I don't really buy SW toys anymore, but I guess I have a soft spot for EU and Mandos.

...also I'm feeling pretty hyped about the Disney+ series.

 

I saw the video game guy, too, but meh.
