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.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

@  -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.

@  -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

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"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)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

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

Spent the last 2 days st Disneyland. About 75% of the stores here have R1 toys and merch. Hoping I won't regret not getting the new Black Series 6" figures. Even if I do, I know I won't regret a 3rd day at the park. My feet are killing me from all of the walking around.

Saw them yest and passed them by reluctantly. Went back today and snagged the Old Maul/7th Sister set.

He's great. Love the hood. She's... odd... Her arms are super soft rubbery plastic that makes it really really hard for her to hold her saber. Other than that she's cool. I'm gonna have to hunt down Fifth Bro now.

-ZacWilliam, between the small removable mask and the tiny spider droid that splits in half (the head plugs into her back - NEAT!) I feel like she's gonna be real hard to find complete someday.

Yeah, I found her bits... odd. Easy to overlook in the packaging and not at all in the instructions (yeah I figured out the droid/backpack thing after only a little bit, but why not TELL your costumer about it?) She's totally going to be a hard one to complete on the secondary market.

 

And her arms are really unfortunate. The rubber combined with the slightly too large lightsaber handle just... you might as well not even bother trying to have her hold it. I might have to see if either of the other Inquisitors' blades will fit in her hand better.

So the Black Series 6" Imperial Royal Guard....I see him on Amazon and eBay, so I'm guessing he has made his way out to Walmart. When was he released? I'd like to get 2 of these.

Is it the 6" one you're seeing or the re-released/repacked 3 3/4" Imperial Guard?

 

Because that's a mistake that I've already made. lol.

It was a mistake, sadly. Saw it listed on Amazon and thought it was 6" figure and I got excited. Glad I didn't go ahead and buy it. Need to get release dates for upcoming 6" figures.

Finally got 6" Black Series Ahsoka off of eBay for a slight mark up. I like her but like a lot of female figures, her skirt limits her leg movement some. Plus the real hard part is getting her to stand with out falling backwards thanks to her big lekku in the back which has also limited her neck movement..

It's funny with all of the R1 toys out now, still a ton of TFA toys out there clearance hasn't gotten rid of yet. The BX on Ft. Bliss finally put Poe's X Wing on sale for 39. They had 2 pallets of "SW Ep7 Lightsaber" they were wrapping up last week and have disappeared this week from the sales floor. Hardly any R1 stuff. 2 Kanan BS figures, a Han and assortment of Stormtroopers

Normally I would say that a BX is not at all representative of normal retail, but in this case it sounds like a perfect snapshot.

Oh I got a kick in the pants yesterday. Went in to the local Fred Meyer and found two Ahsoka's and they were going for 12.99. Go figure the day I got her from ebay for little more than twice that price.

Found BS Jango Fett at a Kohls in El Paso today.  They also had 2 Asokas, 1 EP4 Luke, a EP 8 Han.  I paid a few extra bucks for it but totally worth it as its the first time Ive even seen him on the shelf.

I wish I'd been able to hang on to that Amazon exclusive BS1. I got laid off right after I bought it and had to return it. Now it's easily double the price.
