@  Arazyr : (23 October 2017 - 01:19 PM)

Cool. Could you share the name and/or link? I'm wondering if I could use one...

@  Nevermore : (23 October 2017 - 12:44 PM)

Good news: Watchmaker tool arrived, I've been able to safely remove the pin, rotate the misassembled piece and reinsert the pin.

@  Paladin : (22 October 2017 - 06:22 PM)

i watched his latest Netflix special. hilarious & heartbreaking at teh same time...

@  RichardT1977 : (21 October 2017 - 12:07 PM)

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.

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 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.

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.

@  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.

Kara's high and mighty speech about James being too human to be a superhero like her might have had more weight to it if she hadn't just recently teamed up with a whole slew of superpower-less human heroes on another Earth a little while ago.

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.

Actually, Alex may make it worse.  All the anxiety Kara has regarding friends and loved ones who go into danger already, she's projecting on the two she thought were relatively safe but who are now throwing themselves into danger too.

Hate to dig up an old issue from when the show first began, but Kara's concern for James putting himself in danger might feel more justified if the guy actually looked like his less-macho comic counterpart instead of looking like (as Sean Whitmore put it, back on Page 9) a guy who could "bench-press a Buick".

Okay, we know that the M'gann that came into the DEO with J'onn was the first impostor, and we know later than both Winn and Alex get captured and impersonated by each White Martian, but what doesn't make sense is when the lights go out after J'onn fights the fake M'gann, there's no time for either Alex or Winn to have been grabbed, carried off, tied up, and replaced all before we see everyone grouped together during lockdown. Either Winn or Alex had to have been a fake from the very beginning of the scene before the fake M'gann is exposed, but that still doesn't leave any time for other one of the two to have been switched out when the lights went out.

Why even assume that the imposter had to be one of the people in the room? J'onn later tells the two agents to "take a team", so there's obviously other people in the base.

Why did Alex change into her tactical wear to have a heart to heart with Kara? I thought that was a hint that she was a Martian, but nope, the real one was dressed that way too...

As a spelling Nazi, that "CORE STABLIZED" alert bugged me :p

Poor J'onn... :'(

Headcanon: until and unless contradicted, the new alien love interest Lyra is the CW-verse version of Comet/Biron.  In Super-Horse form, she's a small green pony.

I seriously thought that Winn was going to wake up with a hundred eggs in his stomach after his date with Lyra. But if it's a real relationship that has nothing to do with Kara, then good for him.

Because I was curious, I checked the social media accounts for Hamilton, and none mentioned this show, so Mon-El and Mxy weren't fighting on the real stage. (I guess it makes sense that, with all those sold-out performances, there's no time to have a TV show messing around in their theater.)

I only just noticed this, but doess Kara go to the DEO dressed in civilian clothes that often? That's not smart...

Even though the CGI wasn't the best, I loved Kara fighting the Jor-El statue, that's exactly the kind of nutball stuff that should happen when Mxy is around.

Regarding the theater, it was probably a local one in Vancouver they used.

 

I had the same thought about Kara.  Why is she waltzing around the DEO in her civies?  Does everyone know her secret identity there?

 

Did someone forget that she has a secret identity since most of the main cast (if not all of the main cast) know it?

 

I also wondered why Winn went to the alien bar alone?  Granted for story purposes, but would a normal human really go there that often?  Especially when the drunk aliens seem more dangerous than the average human drunk.

Does skipping out on a date and going straight to a booty call two nights in a row, while barely knowing each other even count as a relationship?

Good intentions or not, right now, Winn is just her lovesick boy-toy.
