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.

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)

@  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.

Yesterday's sightings:

Toys"R"Us in Düsseldorf-Derendorf has moved its Transformers area near the entrance, giving it a more prominent spot with increased shelf space. They have the entire wave 2 of the TLK Deluxes with Steelbane, Sqweeks, Drift and Slug. Multiples of each, though only two Steelbanes remain after I bought one for another fan.
TRUDuesseldorf2017-06-02_1.jpg TRUDuesseldorf2017-06-02_2.jpg

Karstadt in Düsseldorf (Am Wehrhahn) has nothing noteworthy new. The Transformers area, despite having been moved to the end of the aisle, is still a sad sight to be seen.

Galeria Kaufhof directly across the street from Karstadt has TLK Deluxe Sqweeks and Slug.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Duesseldorf_Wehrhahn2017

The other remaining Galeria Kaufhof department store in Düsseldorf ("Kaufhof an der Kö") has a small Transformers display on a table aside from the regular shelf inside the aisle. The only new figure they have, though, is Deluxe Slug.
Galeria_Kaufhof_Duesseldorf_Koe2017-06-0

Nothing noteworthy new at Intertoys in Düsseldorf-Friedrichsstadt or Intertoys in Neuss.

Today's sightings:

Intertoys in Wesel has three Titans Return Titan Master Repugnus...es... er... Repugni?
Intertoys_Wesel2017-06-03.jpg

Intertoys inside the Shopping Arkaden mall in Bocholt has one Titans Return Titan Master Shuffler and one Legends Bumblebee.

Toys"R"Us in Duisburg-Meiderich has the The Last Knight 1-Step Turbo Changers Grimlock and Berserker. I didn't see Megatron, but I did realize afterwards that they might also have a second Transformers section near the entrance like other German TRU stores currently do...
TRUDuisburg2017-06-26.jpg

Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen does definitely have a new Transformers section near the entrance, where they have Titans Return Legends Bumblebee and Kickback. Meanwhile, in the old section in the rear part of the store they have Titans Return Voyager Optimus Prime. No Megatron, though.

Epic FAIL at Spiele Max inside the Forum shopping mall in downtown Mülheim an der Ruhr: All The Last Knight Legions are erroneously priced as 1-Step Turbo Changers, which means the store is charging even more for them than it's supposed to...

Toys"R"Us in downtown Essen had the RID Legions Blurr, Drift and Bisk (previously available at Intertoys), as well as several new releases for Germany: Three-Step Changers Power Surge Bumblebee, Cybertron Strike Steeljaw and Soundwave, plus The Last Knight Legions Drift and Megatron. Crosshairs was either already gone or still inside the stockroom.

Anyone still looking for the RID Mini-Con Deployers Drift/Jetstorm and/or Fracture/Airazor? They're available at Toys"R"Us again, this time as imports. Seen on Monday at TRU in Duisburg-Meiderich, and today at the TRU stores in Düsseldorf-Derendorf and in Neuss. Possibly also at the store in Krefeld, but I was no longer paying any attention to them.
