@  Nevermore : (23 October 2017 - 09:46 PM)

Not sure if it helps because I bought it from Amazon Germany.

@  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.

@  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)

@  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.

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...

Posted 30 April 2015 - 05:09 PM

Preface: I happen to live in the Ruhr area, a densely populated region with multiple cities and several dozen stores in close proximity. While I cannot claim to speak for all of Germany, I have observed enough patterns over the past decade to say with much certainty that most stores belonging to the same chain mostly tend to stock the same figures.

Major chains in my area:
Toys"R"Us - major toy store chain you should all be familiar with.
Intertoys - toy store chain mostly limited to the state of North-Rhine Westphalia. Dutch parent company, stock appears to be supplied by Hasbro Netherlands. Smaller stores than TRU.
Real - major retail chain that sells pretty much everything: Groceries, clothes, cosmetics, household goods, car accessories, beverages and liquor, and toys. Took over most of Walmart's German stores when Walmart backed out of the German market. Medium-sized or large toy sections.
Kaufland - one of Real's competitors. Usually small toy sections, rarely medium-sized ones. It's rare to find Transformers figures there.
Rossmann - drug store chain. Not all of them have toy sections. Those that do have small to medium-sized ones.
Müller - drug store chain, usually with larger stores than Rossmann, often spread across several floors. Not all of them have toy sections, those that do typically have large to medium-sized ones.
Galeria Kaufhof - classic department store chain. Typically large toy sections.
Karstadt - another department store chain. Medium-sized to large toy sections. They have had a love/hate relationship with Transformers for decades, some stores may not have any in stock at all.

General market report:

Beast Hunters can still be found at some stores. Unreleased-in-the-US tail end stuff (Legion Class Divebomb, Rot Gut, Ace Vehicon and Bluestreak, Commander Class Ultra Magnus, Unicron Megatron and Decepticon Bludgeon, Deluxe Class Bumblebee, Smokescreen, Windrazor and Twinstrike) may still be found at the following chains: Toys"R"Us (mainly Legions and Commanders), Real (mostly Legions, maybe some Deluxes). Bludgeon was the rarest of the Commanders to begin with. Deluxe Bumblebee and Smokescreen are mostly sold out. The gray Windrazor variant was rarer than the original yellow version.

Age of Extinction: Deluxes and Voyagers only at Toys"R"Us and Intertoys, Leaders only at Rossmann. Mostly wave 1 figures; TRU stocked wave 2 Deluxes as well. Toys"R"Us also still has the Evolution two-packs, with the Slug one currently on sale for €15. For those who care about the Power Battlers/Attackers (called "Deluxe Attackers" in Germany), those made it up until the Optimus Prime/Galvatron/Grimlock/Slug/Snarl/Lockdown wave, which has been found at Müller, Real, Galeria Kaufhof and even Kaufland stores in recent months.

"Classic" Legion Class: The wave 1 figures (Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Starscream) are still clogging pegs at many stores of nearly all the chains listed above, although Bumblebee remains in much larger quantities than the other two at this point. The wave 2 figures Strafe and Grimlock have only ever been found at Real and Intertoys stores, whereas Megatron was never released in Europe at all. Intertoys and Toys"R"Us now have the "Classic" Legions on sale for €5 a pop.

Robots in Disguise: Wave 1 One-Step Changers, Hyper Change Heroes/Three-Step Changers, Legion Class and Warrior Class figures are very common at most chains. The main exceptions are Galeria Kaufhof and Karstadt, which have the wave 2 Warrior Class figure Autobot Drift instead of the wave 1 figures. Drift appears to ship in solid cases of eight figures, without Optimus Prime for whatever reason. According to reports from the UK, Drift-only shipments happened over there as well for a while, so me may still see Optimus Prime in the future.

Generations Combiner Wars: Wave 1 Legends Class, Deluxe Class and Voyager Class figures at Toys"R"Us, Intertoys, Real and Müller stores. Real occasionally has them on sale. Leader Class wave 1 (Megatron and Armada Megatron) has just started to pop up at numerous Toys"R"Us stores.

Hero Mashers: "Action Figures" wave 1 (Autobot Drift, Autobot Springer, Bumblebee and Starscream) and "Battle Upgrade Figures" wave 1 (Bulkhead with Cliffjumper arm, Optimus Prime with Ultra Magnus arm, Megatron with Skywarp arm) might still be available at some Intertoys stores. "Action Figures" wave 3 (Robots in Disguise Bumblebee, Sideswipe and Steeljaw) is available at numerous Toys"R"Us stores.

Robots in Disguise Titan Heroes wave 1: Optimus Prime and Steeljaw at the Intertoys store in downtown Herne, the first time I've seen these two at German retail.
Intertoys_Herne2015_05_05.jpg

Some Müller stores still have the Age of Extinction Deluxe Strafe/Legion Bumblebee/Legion Stinger three-pack and the Construct Bots Strafe/Bumblebee/Stinger three-pack in stock. These were Müller exclusives in Germany. Seen at the store in Gelsenkirchen. Also the first time I saw an RID Deluxe figure from wave 1 (Strongarm) at the same store as Drift (wave 2).

Real in Mülheim an der Ruhr/Speldorf has at least three RID Hyper Change Heroes/Three-Step Changer Optimus Primes, the first sighting of this figure for Germany.
Real_Muelheim_Speldorf2015_06_03.jpg

Meanwhile, Karstadt inside the Rhein-Ruhr-Zentrum shopping mall in Mülheim an der Ruhr has, I kid you not, N I N E (9) RID Warrior Class Autobot Drifts.
Karstadt_RRZ_Muelheim_2015_06_03.jpg

In what universe did the idea of solid cases containing nothing but Drifts possibly make sense?

First up a non-sighting: Following a report by a fellow German fan that RID Warrior Optimus Prime had been spotted at a Spiele Max store, I checked out the store in Solingen and found no Optimus Prime. Only two RID Warriors were in stock (if I recall correctly, those were Strongarm and Grimlock).

However, I discovered something else.

First up is an unexpected late arrival: Age of Extinction One-Step Changer Autobot Drift, the helicopter version. As far as I know, this is the first time a figure from this wave has been found in Germany. Seen at Galeria Kaufhof in Wuppertal-Elberfeld.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Wuppertal2015_06_06_1.jp Galeria_Kaufhof_Wuppertal2015_06_06_2.jp

Meanwhile, Müller in Wuppertal-Barmen not only has a nifty RID display stand, but also wave 2 of the RID Legion Class with Sideswipe and Grimlock, who are finally out in Germany:
Mueller_Wuppertal2015_06_06_1.jpg Mueller_Wuppertal2015_06_06_2.jpg Mueller_Wuppertal2015_06_06_3.jpg

Surprisingly enough, I found Legion Sideswipe and Grimlock a second time today, this time at Real in Mülheim an der Ruhr/Dümpten:

Galeria Kaufhot in downtown Dortmund has RID Legion Grimlock.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Dortmund2015_06_13.jpg

I'm starting to find it suspicious that this is already the third Kaufhof store where I found Grimlock, but no Sideswipe, who definitely has been released in Germany as well (see sightings at Real and Müller). Has Hasbro shipped another weird case assortment, this time to Kaufhof?

Müller in Gelsenkirchen had four Generations Combiner Wars Legends Class Grooves.

Now they have three. :D

Also a very orderly display with each price point sorted by character. I.e. all the Warrior Bumblebees that are in stock have been put in one line, next to them all the Grimlocks, same for the Legions etc. Only the Combiner Wars Deluxes are thrown together randomly as usual.

Mega sightings marathon!

Real in Mülheim an der Ruhr/Speldorf has Beast Hunters Construct-Bots Optimus Prime and Shockwave. This is the first time I noticed these. Is it possible these are rare/unreleased in the US?
Real_Muelheim_Speldorf2015_07_03_1.jpg Real_Muelheim_Speldorf2015_07_03_2.jpg

Spiele Max inside the Forum shopping mall in in Mülheim an der Ruhr has Robots in Disguise Three-Step Changer/Hyperchange Hero Optimus Prime and One-Step Changers Fixit and Grimlock from wave 2. This is the first time I noticed these, so this might possibly be the first sighting of these for Germany.

Toys"R"Us in Essen has RID Three-Step/Hyperchange Optimus Prime, but no Combiner Wars Voyager Hot Spot or Cyclonus, only four Silverbolts.

Spiele Max in Bochum not only has RID Three-Step/Hyperchange Optimus Prime, but also Warrior Optimus Prime! Three of them, even. Also two Drifts, one Steeljaw and one Strongarm. This suggests it's this assortment, which means one Strongarm has already been sold.

Toys"R"Us in Dortmund has Combiner Wars Voyager Hot Spot and Cyclonus.

Spiele Max in Hagen is a tragedy. The newest figure they have is Beast Hunters Cyberverse Commander Bulkhead. However, the Kre-O Wall of Shame is impressivle. I counted no fewer than 61 (SIXTY-ONE!) Destruction Site Devastators.

Real in Krefeld-Oppum has the entire wave 3 of the Combiner Wars Legends.

I found 3x Groove, 2x Viper and 2x Warpath. Now they're short of one Warpath. :D

That nifty presentation for the photo was my work. The toy department there actually looks like a war zone.

Galeria Kaufhof in downtown Essen has one lone RID One-Step Changer Grimlock. Nothing else from wave 2.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Essen2015_07_17.jpg

In general, the case assortment for this wave appears to be weird: Two weeks ago, Karstadt inside the Rhein-Ruhr-Zentrum shopping mall in Mülheim an der Ruhr had the wave 2 One-Step Changers, specifically four Grimlocks and one Steeljaw; today, they had three Steeljaws (and still four Grimlocks). Not a single Fixit, whom I already saw at Spiele Max und Real stores. There should be eight figures in a case. Antoher "special" case assortment for Karstadt? Or the remainder of two cases, with all the Fixits having already been sold?

Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen has exactly one Combiner Wars Voyager Cyclonus (plus one remaining Silverbolt). No Hot Spot to be seen, not even in the "reserve" area on top of the shelf (or "overstock", as TRU employees call it).
TRUEssen2015_07_17.jpg

Galeria Kaufhof in downtown Gelsenkirchen has exactly one RID Legion Fixit. No Underbite, no Grimlock, no Sideswipe.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Gelsenkirchen2015_07_17.

Müller in downtown Gelsenkirchen has several figures I didn't see there four weeks ago: Combiner Wars Voyager Cyclonus (again, no Hot Spot to be found), RID Tiny Titans Series 3, Combiner Wars Legends Warpath (but still no Viper) and RID Three-Step Changer/Hyperchange Hero Optimus Prime.

Real in Gelsenkirchen-Buer has waves 2 and 3 of the RID Legions with Sideswipe, Grimlock, Underbite and Fixit as well as wave 3 of the Combiner Wars Deluxes with Rook, First Aid, Streetwise and Blades:
