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)

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?

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-

@  BlackMax : (18 October 2017 - 05:50 PM)

I'm not completely sure what I missed but I think I love it.

@  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!

Awesome news.  This is probably my favourite comic-based show on television right now.

It's trippy as shit.

Episode 4 was the best horror movie I've seen in ages.

Aubrey Plaza's performance in Wednesday's episode was divine.

Her acting was great (and it has been for the whole show so far), but I have the distinct feeling that it pushed the premise and the sequences farther than it should've, which directly impacted how much we got to explore everybody's issues.

 

Also I can't help but think that in some scenes certain characters weren't actually there (Wallace regurgitating Lenny's lines, and David himself when he showed up in Sydney's room).

Well, David got the baldness and suit-and-tie right, just not so much the walking around.

Actually, he was able to walk at that time - it was the battle with Farouk that made his legs no-worky.

 

I had wondered if that's who the monster was, but then I thought to myself, "There's no way that they'd use Farouk in this show.  Hell, I wouldn't be surprised if they ignore David's true parentage."

 

Colour me pleasantly surprised.

 

I am a little surprised that Farouk is such a house-hold name amongst the other members of the team, especially if he's been dormant for 20+ years.  Doesn't seem like the type of story that would make its way around ancillary circles of mutants.

 

Maybe they all read about it in those X-Men comics from the Logan continuity...

Is that something they've said for this show? I know it was an alien called Lucifer in the original comics who first paralyzed Chuck. I mean, it works fine that way, but it'd be a strong divide from the X-Men movie "continuity" that I've been assuming this is supposed to be tangentially connected to.

I'm pretty sure that it was the Shadow King that made Chuck paraplegic in the comics.

I had a trading card back in the 90s that attested to the fact.

 

I haven't followed comics closely enough since mid-nineties to know whether they retconned that or not.

 

EDIT:  I did some INTERNET research, and Chuck originally was crippled by Lucifer, but then after the Brood impregnated his body, they moved Chuck into a cloned body, which had working legs.  Then be battled Shadow King was lost the use of his legs again.

I know of at least one time he regained and lost the use of his legs after that too. And wouldn't be surprised by more.

ZacWilliam, it became a little bit of a stock move for them with him...

The issue with Legion and Shadow King were the first X-Men comics I ever have. So that story and this show hold a special place for me.

Loved the finale. Genuinely felt bad for the Division 3 guy.

Aubrey Plaza was more frightening than the yellow eyes devil.

Well, Yellow-eyed devil guy didn't evolve as much in terms of looks as she did. Her look in that last sequence with her in David's mind was terrifying.

 

I'm surprised everybody managed to make it out of the finale alive, actually.

At this point, it'd almost be a kindness to kill off Melanie.  Poor girl finally got Oliver back only to lose him again.

 

Also, the "stinger" mid-credits was really, really weird.  Is that what Equinox was supposed to be?
