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.

@  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.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

@  Dracula : (17 October 2017 - 09:45 AM)

I'd probably use a primer coat on either of them.

@  unluckiness : (17 October 2017 - 07:21 AM)

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

Also, wanted to throw in there your idea of the Decepti-sister idols Soundwave and Space Case, though its a shame it never got published, but hopefully it will someday in some way, shape, or form.

Speaking of which.

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.

Who would have access to the BotCon 2013 Customization Class Handbook? Within it is contained an Interlude featuring a bit of fiction for the Blastcharge Strika Drones, such as the notion that Strika has at least nine of these drones under her command, as well as this pic:

 

Blastcharge-Strika-Drones.jpg

 

And did any other BotCon's Custominzation Class Handbooks contain similar bits of fiction like this in them?

 

If no one else who can get their hands on it faster posts by the end of the day, I may be able to check mine. At work at present. I can say that with the other two Custom Class handbooks I have (2009 and 2016), the fiction seemed to be limited to the bios.

 

Shawn Tessmann is the person who put all this together, so if he's around, he'd be the best source.

After a bit of archive searching, I was able to turn up that Shawn went by the name Delta Source (and, I think Delta Source1 was a later name for the same person, but I can't quite confirm that).

 

Unfortunately, it seems hasn't posted here for some time (last summer, as best I can tell). Someone else might be able to provide more current information.

Thanks for the clarification. I was prepared to believe that my research had come up with the wrong name. And, in fact, my research WAS obviously wrong when it came to the matter of Shawn's most recent post.

I've got the BotCon 2013 book in-hand. The picture you posted above is indeed in it (a bit larger than just the portion you see here, but nothing special is revealed in the part you can't already see), as an "Interlude" between the generic instructions (applicable to custom building in general) and the actual assembly instructions (well, the bit telling you what specific paint colors you'll want came first...).

The only other "special" item I can think to mention is that an instruction on the shoulder assembly has a cartoon hand drawn in pointing to it with the words "Sergeant Kup™ says... this pin here? It's just a reinforcement for the shoulder joint... just make sure there's no nasty burrs on the rotator."

 

As I said before, it also includes a bio and tech numbers for the "BLASTCHARGE STRIKA DRONE," in common with other custom class handbooks.

 

The other handbooks I have are:

  • BotCon 2009, with bio info on SG Thunderclash and "Nightclash," a combined form of SG Thunderclash and SG Nightbeat (from the previous year) and some data on the SG Autobot Elite Guard.
  • BotCon 2016, with bios for G1 Ratchet, G2 Ratchet, SG Ratchet, and Medix.

That's all I can find for "fictional" data.

I'm not comfortable scanning the material wholesale without permission from Shawn and/or FunPub (their rights would still exist, even if the club doesn't), but I'm happy to give a bit more information (such as there is) on the SG Elite Guard when I get back to a place where the books are nearby. In the meantime, I imagine that this tiny bit from Thunderclash's bio on the TF Wiki probably covers this reasonably well.
