My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

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.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

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)

@  ▲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

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

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

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

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

Saw new figures at retail for the first time in awhile just now. Target had several of the Snap Wexley with Snowtrooper Officer 2pack.

This is a neat article about the search for the actor who portrayed Boshek. I recalled reading that no one knew for sure who he was, but it's neat that he was found. It's also pretty wild to realize that he was apparently still alive when his figure came out but no one knew about. With all the difficulties we've read about getting approval for actor likenesses, it seems surprising. I wonder if he was fair game since he was uncredited?

Including a 3.75 Sabine with removable helmet

Sabine with removable helmet (and weird bent elbow but shrug) and Storm Trooper Kanan are musts for me.

-ZacWilliam, wish there had been more 3.75 reveals. I suppose it's pretty unlikely the SDCC Fogue One figure will be 3.75z

I'm baffled.  We KNOW a much broader range of items exist from the Nuremberg Toy Fair.  Why didn't we see more?  Why isn't Hasbro pushing more stuff?

 

I'm guessing either items are timed to some sort of "exclusive reveal" from other venues, or Hasbro knows it really doesn't matter what they put out, Star Wars is hot enough retailers are still just going to buy anything.

Reportedly, a new TIE Fighter (though, I was suspecting maybe a Mando fighter from description), bunch of Rogue One stuff, and new AT-AT with nerf darts and app integration

 

From Marvelous at Toyark:

 

 

Star Wars:
Rogue One 6" Black Series were shown. Main heroine, main antagonist (looks like Admiral Thrawn, but without blue skin. Black droid (Assuming RO).
ANH Leia and TFA C-3PO.

3,75" Rogue One vehicles. Starfighter, a new kind of Tie fighter (flat wings shaped kinda like those of an Interceptor. AT-AT with mobile app enhanced control and firing Nerf darts (Smalelr than Vintage Collection). Many new 3,75" figures for TFA, OT,PT and RO.
Banner for Rogoue One with a big shot of Darth Vader.

Ah - oh that's right - they didn't allow pictures. Well, whatever the reason Hasbro said there'd be no Rogue One at Toyfair so I guess we can't be surprised. But yeah, it's strange that they'd show the toys over there and not here unless they just want to save it for Celebration X.

Man, that Darth Revan figure looks great, I am definitely buying it. So many nostalgic memories rushing back, I think I was in high school when that game was released. That's also the game that introduced me and got me into Star Wars in the first place.

Question for you guys, I have never bought a Black Series figure before, are the heads able to be easily swapped on a figure like Revan? If it is, I may have to buy some other figure so I can make recreate some unmasked scenes of my KOTOR Revan.

Yeah, it's normally pretty easy to take their heads off, but Revan's plastic hood might make putting the head back on a challenge.

Sabine fared much better in the translation to the Black Series toyline than Kanan did. Revan came out really well, also.

So that's two more checked off my wish list with HK-47, "Resistance" Rey, and Lando to go.

Oh, and thanks for picking up another astromech for me, Confuzor!

Guess Kohls is still a viable stop.

 

I was there yesterday (they had a TON of, overpriced, Star Wars stuff), and found a lone Sabine/Stormtrooper set sitting in the back.  I think that was $13.49 well spent.  And I found wave 2 Blind bags, for what that is worth.

Is there anywhere that sells faction decals for modelling projects? In particular I'm trying to find ones for the Republic army like the faction symbol and the 'twin suns'.

You know, that's one property Toyhax hasn't tackled yet. The closest I can find is this site that has hi-res scans of original label sheets you can download and print on your own.

Finally found Sidon Ithon and First Mate Quig in the store today! I'd seen the other set packed with them (Rebel Pilot/SnowCommander) a bunch but this was te first time seeing these two. Had to snag the Crimson Corsair. (Anyone in the Windsor, Ct area the Target had one of this set and 2 of the other left as of 9am)

-ZacWilliam, still seen none of the newer single figures except a bunch of Hassik Thugs.

Something I'm working on crossing a tank-like Gundam kit with a Star Wars ones. The idea is an Imperial tank that was produced by tail between their legs CIS engineers at the end of the war to curry favour with the new regime. The result thus shows said heritage while taking obvious cues from the Republic's forces. This played into it being rejected by the Empire wanting to establish a new identity, including more firepower/rule by fear and TIE air raids (as seen in TFA) proving a better strategy than ground tanks.
