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.

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.

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)

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.

Seems more like they had Bats unknowingly equate 'arch-enemy' to 'girlfriend'. :D

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.

It's neat that this film is willing to casually do stuff like "well, we've got Rosario Dawson voicing her so Batgirl is black, sure."

(Plus the amazing "Two-Face from the parallel universe where Billy Dee Williams didn't get replaced" thing they're doing.)

Is it wrong to be disappointed that there's steam and water that's not made out of bricks in this movie?


In light of the new trailer, I gotta admit the steam and fog gives this movie a good, different feel from TLM.

The water is alright too, I guess brick water might not work in the scenes they need water in.

It's bizarre how I'd much rather DC just stuck to making LEGO superhero movies instead of continuing to plod along with their live-action efforts.  Hopefully there are a few more digs at Batman V Superman in this one.

Black-Latina, from the looks of it (like Rosario herself). Some spoilery LEGO sets show a brown-skinned Gordon, too, as well as Babs in costume. Dunno if they accurately reflect what's going into the movie, but they're a thing that exists.

 

Also worth noting is that this is indeed a sequel to The LEGO Movie, or at least a side-quel. Batman retains his status as a Master Builder.

Only LEGO proprietary characters are yellow. Licensed characters run the gamut of skin tones. A yellow Lando Calrissian would look weird.

Which is all well and good, but what distinguishes just plain Black from Black-Latina so that you can tell?  They all have the same facial features.  A medium-brown Lego could be any number of ethnicities.  What says specifically Black-Latina here?

Aside from the tan color, it can only be assumed since Rosario Dawson is doing the voice. (Herself being Irish - Afro Latina)

Black Lego characters tend to use a darker shade of brown than the tan colour used as a "middle" shade. Compare:

Batgirl has the lighter tone.

So if Rosario's Babs is the same shade as Kanan, what exactly makes hers read as Black-Latina other than her voice actress?  Because no one is looking at Kanan and thinking Black-Latino.

Yeah. Which makes it weird that Ezra, who's darker than Kanan in the show, uses the "white" skintone.

 

So if Rosario's Babs is the same shade as Kanan, what exactly makes hers read as Black-Latina other than her voice actress?  Because no one is looking at Kanan and thinking Black-Latino.

 

Because she's not using the "white" skintone that Batgirl traditionally has and the most likely explanation is that it's to match her voice actress?

 

(Oh, and am I the only one who was baffled that people think Kanan's white? His facial features and skintone suggest that he's middle-Eastern or Asian, to me.)

I didn't think white, but wasn't thinking any portion of him was black.

 

I was thinking some kind of Hispanic.  Which when you think of this version of Batgirl it makes sense why he's that color.

 

The whole Batgirl thing makes perfect sense to me though.  I like it.
