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)

@  ▲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.

He just put those up. I was on his page maybe 20 minutes ago and they weren't there. Those BS figures don't do much for me though. I'd like to see Finn get his own set of clothes, not something stolen or borrowed. That play set looks pretty cool, I'd want it if I was a kid. Not just a kid at heart.

I really like the look of that BB8/SDestroyer set in Playset mode. I probably won't want to spring for what they'll charge for it, but it looks like a neat piece.

Darth Revan should be here tomorrow.

 

So I just realized after looking at Lando more...he has a molded cape and not a fabric.  Thats kinda weird. Not sure if I like it.

Is this auction fake or real? Im guessing a wide release of Thrawn would be put out, maybe its been announced and I didn't see it/don't remember reading it.

Yeah, Thrawn was always going to get a wide release, just as prior SDCC items have.  He just isn't coming with all the nifty accessories.  Didn't know he was slipping out...but it's not like Hasbro or Disney have been terribly forthcoming with information on what is actually going to be available over the next few weeks.

I'd be willing to spend the money on Thrawn. Kinda want the SDCC version but it's a bit much. Hopefully HTS has plenty.

I see 3 auctions for her on eBay now, pre orders. Range from $43 - $50. Expected to arrive between end of September, start of October.

I got the Black Series Vader Legacy Pack on clearance at Walmart for $12.

Now I just have to fight the urge to try to collect all 12 of the "Early Bird" figures to complete the stand.

 

Shouldn't be too hard given that they were fairly hard to find in the stores to begin with.

The "rarity" of Han Solo and R2D2 amuse me to no end.  I still remember the wails of collectors about Hasbro was killing 6" Black because Han and Greedo were a SDCC item in addition to slow movers at retail.

The problem with BS is they make to many of the characters nobody wants. H on Lt they won't really know until they hit the shelves. But why not do 2 of each character per case, especially the 40th anniversary waves.

I'll second the notion that BS is chock-full of characters that no one wants.

I put together my Legacy stand and opened Darth Vader.  I also opened my Boba Fett and added him.

 

I've got two Royal Guards coming from Amazon.

Forget collecting the 40th Anniversary line, I'mma stock my stand with characters that I actually want.

The problem is figure like Constable whoever and the dudeninnthenred and black suit. Figures with zero or very little screen time that didn't even have a major impact on the story getting figures. With he R1 figures The Captain and Jyn getting so many figures. They just clog the shelf the way RotS Obi-Wan used to. Then poor distribution of the figures doesn't help either.

The same people I bought Admiral Thrawn from on eBay sold 4 of them at the $28 price point I got them at now have 8 @ $31. Glad I got him "cheap".

Constable Zuvo (or whatever) is totally another example of how the creators for TFA were a bit too secretive for the licensees. I get why they were but... You kind of have to work with your licensees - especially in a brand as tied to toys and merchandise as Star Wars - to make sure you don't get situations like #WheresRey or globs of product that doesn't sell/fails to generate the intended interest.

 

The Constable was one of the alien concepts sent to Hasbro, probably with a background bio write-up making him sound cool... And that's it. No discussion of relevance to the plot. Now I gather there was supposed to be a scene with him on Jakku, so maybe that would have helped, but the scene was entirely cut from the final film leaving the Constable maybe visable in the background for 2 or 3 seconds. Meanwhile Hasbro is all "Oh wow! This alien sounds important! Let's make him at both scales!"

 

All that aside... At $20, I'm incredibly particular about the characters I pick up for the line. Which so far has been OT Troopers and the Rebel side of the Rebels cast (Ie, I plan on skipping Thrawn). So I'm pretty much not buying most of TFA, R1, or TLJ 6" Black Series anyway.

I'm probably limiting myself to Vader, Royal Guards, and OT Stormtroopers... maybe a few other Imperial troopers (like a Scout Trooper - should have bought that one when it was super-cheap).

 

Amazon has unmasked 6" Kylo Ren for like $4 shipped (Prime)... and I was like, "meh."

Maybe if I had cared more about his character in the media, I may have jumped on that deal, but over the years of collecting, I've had to become more selective because space is always going to be limited.
