@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

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)

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.

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)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

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)

@  ▲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'

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

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

I'm just hoping they go ahead and reveal wave 3 of TFA figures, instead of just waiting for the stuff to cycle onto retail before we know like what happened with wave 2.

Seems like they also revealed a 6" A New Hope Leia, but only a rendering of her head.

Hasbro has said that the toys revealed so far intentionally only cover the first third of the film, so I wouldn't be totally surprised if they don't show off much more until things get closer.

Seeing that season 2 preview for Rebels makes me sad.

 

Because, given how Hasbro and retailers are acting these days, I don't think we'll see HALF of the nifty stuff that is being previewed in toy form, despite the fan service to other eras.  As is, despite starting its second season, half its regular cast commanding MASSIVE secondary market premiums (akin to what happened with Ashoka figures during Clone Wars), the new line has barely addressed any availability issues, and it has taken until the SECOND wave to give us any Rebels single figures (and reruns of guys that weren't that hard to get to begin with).

 

I think the scope of Rogue One will be a significant factor, but I fear that after this fall, everybody will be like "movie, MOVIE, MOVIE!!!!!!" and Rebels will end up ignored in favor of either getting more stuff out for TFA, or gearing up for Rogue One.

Soooo frustrated. Every time I come close to grabing Phasma and Kylo 3.75 for a decent price online something comes up or gets in the way. Becoming more aggravating then fun.

Stepping back. Letting go for now I think.

-ZacWilliam, Mentally I fully believe they eventually be easy to get at retail I've just been wanting them sooner but Blah too stressful.

Yup, that was me.

I was there late in the day, like 6ish, on the 9th and I was really surprised that that many guys were still there. I feel like scalpers usually hit early.

-ZacWilliam, somebody beat my to the long necked blue protocol droid though.

That's pretty bizarre. I thought there were a lot more collectors in the area. Well, thanks for leaving Hux! Even if I missed the others, it was nice to find somebody new on the pegs.

 

(Picked up the Desert Damage TIE at TRU, too. It has an impressively not-calling-out-exclusiveness box.)

Does Bandai actually expect people to use the stickers that come with these model kits?

I tried to peel off one of the big black ones, and it came off without the adhesive part.

I'm also just generally terrible at applying the tiny ones.

 

I guess I'm going to have to learn how to use those water slide decals, or paint.

It was rather refreshing to hit a Walmart (this one is about an hour away from me, right next to a Target), or any store for that matter, and see a healthy showing of product.  I saw wave 2 of both single figure assortments with over half a dozen figures each commanding a peg for themselves (and several more with mixed offerings, no Kylo Rens to be had, though).  All the vehicles (minus the Falcon), Titans, Mashers, Micro Machines, there was a solid showing for ALL of it.  Much better showing than the Target which was a bit sparse.

Of note is that Ezra has two figure variations: one with helmet on, one without.  In case anyone was variant hunting.

 

I picked up the wave 2 space figures.  Hux is kind of "meh" at the moment (personally, I question the logic in throwing all these characters out NOW when we won't even "know" them until the end of December...when many may well not be readily available), the Guavian Enforcer is interesting, and I don't have an Inquisitor, so those hit more points than the rest of the available wave 2 guys (minus the Rebels, but I think they'll be easy to get later).

But the big reason I got them was for the BAW, which looks like a Hunter-Killer droid (some of the stylings even evoke the HK droids from the Old Republic games)

 

Also worth re-mentioning that Gamestops are still carrying Black figures, including the final mass retail wave AND for a lower price (9.99).  Got me a Stormtrooper and Chewbacca, and a Captain Rex, which I'm not sure I'll keep.

Saw a ton of new guys at the Manchester TRU today. Sarco Plank, X-Wing Atsy, Snow Trooper, and for the first time ever for me multiple Capt. Phasma.

Wife ok'd snagging 3. 1 for me. 1 for each of the kids. (Shhh... they're all really for me.) So my son really wanted the Snow Trooper, and I wanted another Xwing pilot and Phasma went with out saying, so Sarco went back despite looking pretty cool in a space Cenobite-y way.

-ZacWilliam, only second wave figure I have not seen now is the Blue Alien Protocol droid. Hope he's not impossible as I really like his look...
