@  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)

@  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.

@  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)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  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.

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.

Well if Bay isn't directly involved, it might be good. It may seem hypocritical, since I actually liked the Transformers movies, for the most part, but Transformers and the TMNTs are two very different things. Transformers has always been a fairly shallow marketing ploy with some moments of exceptional greatness. All I ever really wanted out of the TF movies was some really awesome giant robots fighting each other, any other good stuff was just extra.

But there was actually a point to the TMNTs. They were originally conceived as a satire of their era of comics. I greatly doubt that Bay is at all subtle enough to pick up on the satirical angles of the franchise. The other worrying thing is the humor angle. The TMNTs make jokes. A lot of jokes. And God have mercy on our souls if we wind up with a movie filled with Bay humor.

But, as others have pointed out: He may not be directly involved. More details will be welcomed as they come in.

Let the man make money for the franchise so TMNT will have money to make better cartoons and toys.

Hasbro as a whole wouldn't be doing half the things they're doing right now if it wasn't for his movies. It's all for the better good.

The real thing to ask yourself is 'What will Nickelodeon do with the money if this movie franchise is successful?'

More Avatar? More TMNT? Better toys? More new franchises?



I personally think he used the word 'alien' as a way to gauge internet reaction. Perhaps there was a dispute behind the scenes on which origin to go with. I believe this because I've seen things like this happen personally. The words you use in public are chosen very very carefully. It was used with a purpose and had to be approved by multiple people in charge.

Because the movies he makes do very well.

Doesn't make them detrimental* to the franchises either.

Uwe of the other hand ACTUALLY makes bad movies that hurt their franchises.

*by 'detrimental' I mean making the franchise lose money or essentially killing off the franchise. Personal tastes for aesthetics or toys aside.

I've only watched each of his Transformers movies once and once only. I did get the DVD of the first movie but didn't bother watching it.

Just because I'm a fan of Transformers doesn't mean I have to like every single aspect about Transformers. But I wanted to see them just so I know whether I liked them or not. I'll be the same with the fourth movie too.

Considering that half...more than half of what they're doing is Dark of the Moon toys and DotM repaint after repaint...I'm not so sure this is a convincing argument...at least not for me personally.

If true, I hope the internet reaction has been largely like it's been here...that he can take his alien concept and shove it up his.......how far can I go with this before getting banned?

I'm sorry. I...had to do it.

Dear TMNT Fans,

You have nothing to fear about Michael Bay ruining your precious turtles. Mostly because they will only appear in 15% of the entire TMNT film.
The plot will center mostly around the annoying boy wants girl, girl rejects boy, girl falls for boy, girl and boy banter over who-loves-who romance (insert puke icon)
Don't worry?Splinter will not offer the young lovers sagely advise; he'll be mute.

Casey Jones will be played by whomever Spielberg has a boner for at the moment, and there will be a revolving door of bimbos who did well on Bays' casting couch staring female lead. The most important thing here is that you will see lots of gratuitous panty shots, and slapstick human stupid.
Now that mutant turtles are a 'race', you will be introduced early to a pair or of 'new' turtles: Mario and Luigi, and hilarity will ensue when you laugh at their adorable antics and strangely offensive stereotype excuse-of-a-personalities.
And speaking of personality: Mike, Leo, Don and Ralph won't be doing much of either?speaking, OR personality. But they WILL be super cool and all badass with lots of explosions, shaky cam and dirt.

There will be endless dirt.

Enjoy.


With sympathy,
Your Transformer Fan Friends

Okay...so, Leo has flames on his shell and can shoot them out of his mouth, Raph is in all black and can turn into shadows ala ninja assassin, Donatello wears an iron man suit he built himself and Mikey is able to turn any pizza into a saw blade that can attach to his nunchucks; they can also serve as hover boards.
