@  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.

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.

Least it wasn't a weird scratchy noise IN YOUR BRAIN.  Or was it.  Maybe you found it after it crawled out?

@  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)

Yes.

It's like in Star Trek Into Darkness where Vulcan being destroyed means Khan is a white guy now.

 

 

Besides, we're talking about a film franchise where Emma Frost seemingly ages in reverse, so "continuity" is barely an afterthought.

There's also the really, really easy out...

 

Jubilee is, like Psylocke, never named in her appearances. So it simply wasn't the same person.

 

Or the Jubilee in the original films is Jubilee, daughter of Jubilee.

In X2, when Storm and Nightcrawler go to rescue the children abducted by Stryker, Storm very quickly says "Jubilee" before Kurt teleports in to save them.

 

Ive kind of just accepted that DOFP was a soft reboot in a sense and just hope the movie is good.

 

The x-men comics are convoluted enough;i guess that is one aspect the movies got right.

I'll take anything that gives Jubilee more face time. I know she's not the most popular character ever, but I kinda like her. And if they make her an actual mutant with her oringinal powers (you know...as apposed to a de-powered mutant turned vampire) so much the better.
How about we start with your complete and total surrender?

I keep throwing money at the screen but nothing is happening!

 

Seriously, it's kind of amusing...my apathy for Days of Future Past has transformed into wild excitement for Apocalypse.

So we're up to Beast, Cyclops, Jean, Storm, Nightcrawler, Psylocke, Jubilee, Havok, Angel, and possibly Gambit?

 

That's a lot of people to fit in between the introduction of Apocalypse and giving the majority of the screentime to Lawrence/McAvoy/Fassbender.

I've just come to accept that X-Movie mutants will have little in the way of actual characterization.

The rumor is that this and the third Wolverine movie are the end of the Singerverse X-Men movies anyway, and we'll get a series wide (rights protecting) reboot in a few years.

 

Makes a certain amount of sense. Jackman's pushing 50, Jennifer Lawrence is done getting painted blue to play third banana, Fassbender's likely moving on as well.

Ouch!

I hope thats one rumour that isn't true. I mean, one of DOFPs major things was freeing up the X-Universe continuity with the time reset.

Eh, makes sense to me.

 

Apocalypse wraps things up - leading Magneto into his plot to mutate all non-Mutants and setting up the team from the first X-film. I can't blame Lawrence for being done with that absolutely silly makeup for Mystique and as much as I love Fassbender's Magneto...he doesn't need to be typecast into that role. The man's got talent in change, no sense wasting it playing a costumed super villain.

I think Fassbenders unlikely to be typecast. He's too good for that.

I doubt typecasting is the concern with Fassbender. I'm sure it's the same reason Jennifer Lawrence is moving on: he's one of the most in demand actors in Hollywood, and he signed a multi picture deal right before he got super famous. I'm sure he's just ready to do other things.

She's naked. Even at the time of the first film, the justification for such was flimsy.

I actually kind of liked Magneto's reasoning regarding that in First Class: "Have you ever looked at a tiger and thought you ought to cover it up?"

 

It's very Magneto, if nothing else.
