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.

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

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

@  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.

Different subject.

 

On the Matrix of Leadership page under the Cybertron comic subsection of the Robots in Disguise (2001) cartoon section is the following note:

Note: This was the first fictional use of the detail sculpted into the Robots in Disguise Prime toy's Super Mode chest as the Matrix; the Robots in Disguise cartoon had opted to portray it as a power socket, and treated the Matrix as an energy, as noted above.

A look through the page edit history shows that this note was written by you, Chris.

 

When exactly was that chest detail portrayed as a power socket in the cartoon?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Is that still there? I would SWEAR I removed it, because I specifically remember trying to verify it and realizing I had no idea what I was talking about.

 

EDIT: Took it out myself! (Another "flying metallikato kick" situation on my part, there, I think!)

I would honestly argue that that chest compartment was intended to be his Matrix, as Ultra Magnus was very much eyeing that part of Prime's Battle Mode body when he showed to help Magnus at the end of Magnus's debut episode.

And this cutaway image of Super Fire Convoy from the Car Robots Warriors Battle Guidebook labels that section of his chest as Fire Convoy's Energon Matrix:

Hello... I thought I'd pop in to ask a question about the TFwiki registration system. I've been trying to register in the Wiki for a while now, to post a comment / bit of trivia on a Discussion page, but no dice. I've tried to put in the captcha code several times, but the site always claims I got it wrong. ._. Are the registrations buggy or just disabled? Not sure what's going on.

 

Anywho, I figured I could post my comment / "bit of trivia" (rather, a funky coincidence) here instead. This picture of Nemesis from Spotlight Doubledealer reminds me heavily of Shu Shirakawa's Granzon from Super Robot Wars OG, a PS2 game from 2007 (a year before the Doubledealer comic came out). The Granzon does that exact same pose in the games when it generates a black hole from its chest (from 2007, from 2016). A coincidence or maybe the artists knew SRW?

I wouldn't take it as a reference just from a similar pose but it seems like something you can try ask the penciller. He seems somewhat active on Deviantart and there's a contact thing on his website.

Of course, he might not even remember what references he used for a panel drawn almost a decade ago.

Well I figured we should have some kind of grace period while potentially preliminary information was being disseminated, but if everyone else thinks it's safe, then by all means I'm for that.
