@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

I'm making progress with tweezers. It's no great loss given Dai Atlas minor roles anyway, I really do prefer this mold for Titans Overlord and Sky Shadow,

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:00 AM)

Even writing them generally in katakana is a consistent treatment, and gives someone learning the language a general expected approach. I'd say the anecdotal frustration with English by those learning it compared to learning other languages as a second language is a demonstration that this sort of consistency and organization was not a valued thing in the past few centuries of the language's development.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

Frankly, it just sounds like you think other languages seem a certain way because you don't look into them all that much.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

It's pretty pervasive in Japanese as well, with how these feature into everyday speech.. And I don't know what you even mean by "deep", since writing them in a particular character set basically calls attention to not just their derivative nature, but their relative recency as well.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 12:25 AM)

Indeed, every language has those artifacts if you examine deeply enough, but in English they're not deep, and they're pervasive.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:56 PM)

like Japanese using three different script types together, and more recent word borrowings tend to be in katakana.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:51 PM)

I don't know what you mean by "cohesively". Borrowings are probably obvious if you know what to look for.

Still toying around with the weapon options. The default gun's not bad but it doesn't say "long range weapon" to me. The construct bots parts work okay but not great, so I'm going to try some other stuff

Quick question, does TR PMOP shoulder guns have Mini-Con ports on them? I thought I saw them in a video review but I don't think the reviewer mentioned it.

IIRC they're the same as Ultra Magnus' which don't.  There are 5mm (?) holes in them, but no pegs IIRC.

They are definitely not the same, since they have Titanmaster seats on them. There are 5mm pegs with holes in them on the top side, but I don't have any Minicons with me right this moment to check whether it's compatible.

That said, there IS inexplicable Armada Optimus detailing on the backs of the arms, so it's almost certainly intentional.

I keep on going back and forth on whether I want the chestplate or not.

 

I hope his feet are transformed wrong.

 

 

Do you have Magnus?  If so, the feet are the same.  You can hyperextend them like this if you want him to be taller, but properly they're compacted into the ankles more.  

 

Just a preview for Takara's incredibly stupid Ginrai feet.

The Takaratomy one should have blues "gloves" to break up all the red.


Takara will be going for animation accuracy and Ginrai's animation model is based on PMOP (I think there's a few JG1 guys who have their American colours in animation, right?), so the Takara version will likely have the red hands too.

Doubleclouder comes to mind as having Doubledealer's colors instead of his own.  Hydra's colors also changed from Darkwing's to his own after a couple of episodes.

 

But yeah, Ginrai had the back of his hands blue with red fingers.  Think of Lio Convoy's hands except instead of dark gray fingers red fingers.

I'm not sure what Armada Optimus Prime detailing that's supposed to be.  

Gearshift is reading it as the exhaust pipes on the sides of Armada Prime's forearms, but considering they're on the backs here and don't really have much in common other than the two pipe ends, I'm skeptical.  They're just as close to mimicking detailing on Hyperdrive, and that guy doesn't even exist.

Well we did get CW Armada Megatron from a mold that looks nothing like Armada Megatron, so surely Armada Optimus from this is less of a stretch?
