You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If you are looking to recoup some of the costs, I mean

@  WorkbenchManiac : (20 October 2017 - 07:26 PM)

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:34 PM)

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:49 PM)

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:46 PM)

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Got replacements, so yeah. Main thing is, if you hear a weird scratchy noise in your headphones it might not be static..

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 October 2017 - 01:28 AM)

Nuke the headphones from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2017 - 09:04 PM)

It's interesting how life gives you a good thing and then a bad thing. Like, just got my tax return and it was quite robust, and then I found an INCH LONG EARWIG IN MY HEADPHONES. AHHHHH-

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2017 - 11:52 AM)

BERNIEEEEEEEE...

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

It scared me!

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

@  Darth Gonzo : (17 October 2017 - 05:36 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

I believe they might've shown up in one of the Japanese Kre-O comics, and thus will at some point have (Kre-O) pages too.

So, this is more for Abates than anyone else... Are we adding continuity designators to every page now or something?

 

I'm assuming I'm missing some other reason why Gra and Ida were called out with (Prime) continuity identifiers?

Gra and Ida have non-Prime Kre-O counterparts.

Unless it's a massive coincidence, it seems KirbyForce/Noerk/etc. found an old account he's had lying around since 2010...

"The Molecule Immobilizer"

 

(PREMISE)

 

Wheeljack is working on a device which can freeze a

 

molecule's action, literally stopping a moving object in its
 
tracks, leaving it immobile. Through the spying of Soundwave
 
and Reflector, the Decepticons are well aware of this
 
development.
 

The Autobots take the gun out into the forest for a test.

 
Wheeljack aims it at a tree and the tree becomes immobile. Spike
 
tries to break a leaf off and can't. The air molecules of the
 
surface of the tree have been frozen from motion, changing the
 
substance of the tree into one as hard as rock. Spike wants to
 
know what it would be like to be immobile, but Wheeljack tells
 
him it would be fatal to a human since it stops the flow of blood
 
to the brain. Suddenly, the tree comes back to life. It seems
 
the effect is only temporary.
 

Ironhide, who is supposed to be standing guard, has become

 
interested in the experiments and all at once, the Autobots are
 
overrun by the Decepticons. Several Autobots are seriously
 
damaged and the Decepticons get away with the molecule gun.
 

Back at Autobot headquarters, Ironhide takes full blame for

 
the attack and thinking he has become too old to be useful
 
anymore, retires himself from active service, much to Prime's

Checking my BW Omnibus, the first mentioning of the planet's name in the Sourcebook that I can find is under Galvatron's "Weapons/Abilities" section:

 

Showing uncanny prescience, Galvatron was one of the very first 'new' Cybertronains to adopt a beast mode. He chose a species of dragon from the planet Gaea, largely because of its fearsome reputation as a hunter. In this mode, Galvatron possesses a system for ingesting base metals and turning them into a searing molten jet, which could be spat at enemies. Also derived from Gaea's datafiles, his vehicular mode was a drill tank, with an explosive projectile bit. In Robot Mode, Galvatron utilized a claw/jaw ballistic weapon. His preferences was to seize his victim and execute them at close range.

 

And there's also the Glossary entry for the planet itself in the very back of the book:

 

Gaea:

A planet located in sector C-16 of Cybertronian space, Gaea possessed an unusually high amount of Angolmois energy and thus attracted the attention of would-be despot, Galvatron. Gaea is a very Earth-like planet filled with forests, swamps, and wide areas of frozen tundra. While animals and nature rule this world, the Maximals discovered scattered pieces of technology on the planet, indicating that at one time the world had been inhabited by a technologically advanced race. Gaea has two moons, one of which served as an observation post for Celestial observers Artemis and Moon.

While normally I wouldn't be so quick to trust other sources over on-screen text, we're talking about an English word written by non-English speakers. There's a LOT of animation errors out there that are just some poor animator trying to write a street sign in letters they don't know.

 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common. Still though, the most likely thing is that someone tried to spell it and got it wrong (or "wrong" in this instance).

That's not actually at issue here; in this particular instance, we're stuck with the "Gaea" spelling because that's how it appeared in an English-language work (i.e. the Sourcebook), which we've also defaulted to for characters (Lio Convoy over Leo Prime, most famously, but also Autocrasher over Autocrusher).
 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common.

Gaea: 888,000 results

 

The Wikipedia article for the goddess is also at Gaia, but I don't know how diagnostic that is.
