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.

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.

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...

@  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.

LOL.  It was just a joke.  Mind you I had been saving that one since it happened...

 

I think I only had a dozen or so posts, anyway.  No hard feelings.

 

 

 

EDIT: And, um...we might've jumped the gun?

Now the rep is saying the subscriptions were just temporarily offline.  Don't know what to think now.

Well if it does happen hopefully SEGA will license it out to someone else.... Like maybe IDW. They have had some good luck since Nickelodeon gave them the TMNT license, but even if Archie allows their old material to be used I'm sure they would be under the same current restrictions on the older material as well. But most likely we'd start from ground zero and most likely lose the SATA.M. characters. :(

The fear was that they were immediately halting production.

 

Soliciting issues months away goes against that.

Immediately? Never thought that was the case myself. But stopping subscriptions would cause the concern for the future past what was known. Though I can't say April's Sonic solicits have me really hyped to buy either issue.

As far as I understand it...they actually do own these characters.  From what little I remember reading about this, Archie never actually had any of these writers sign a work-for-hire contract.  Without that, technically all these comic-only characters from that era are the rightful property of their creators...unless they are deemed derivative.  Of course, somehow, "evil Sonic" was deemed not derivative and I guess Penders has a right to him, so who even knows.
 
Common sense and legal right are often in direct conflict with each other.
 
Of course, if this gets the comic killed off...or even if they decide to make the Mega Drive books the new "real" continuity...I'm going to be mad.  Ian just got done trying to rebuild this universe, it be a shame to let all that just be a waste.


They did have them sign work-for-hire contracts. It's just that those contracts were thrown out by a warehouse worker while in storage, and the photocopies that Archie has aren't eligible in court.

 

 

IIRC, they claimed the contracts were lost in a fire.

 

Also, surprised this got its own thread. Was the topic in danger of getting lost in all the posts the other one gets each day? ;P

Sorta an update?  Maybe?  Archie Comics' solicits for May are out, but no Sonic comics:

 

http://majorspoilers...omics-may-2017/

 

Mind you, they also don't have any of their Red Circle superhero stuff or horror series on there either, so maybe they're just taking a month off.  Or maybe these solicitations are incomplete, but I don't think so.   And the Sonic comics are usually pretty reliable for coming out monthly, usually.

This happened when the comic's release was delayed before. This happened last year.

 

Just keep that in mind.

"ORIGINAL CHARACTER, DO NOT STEAL" is a meme commonly associated with Sonic "original characters," or OCs, who are often just recolors of existing characters. It mutated into "DONUT STEEL" because the internet has a deep love for horrible puns.

 

Anyway, what's going on is that people who have actually officially worked on Sonic are claiming Sega stole the characters that they made for Sega. It's why they retconned so many of the old cast out of the comic - Ken Penders claimed the characters he created to be his own, so he sued Archie. Archie couldn't find the rights to the characters they owned - they claim that they burnt the documents accidentally. And thus Penders got his mitts on all the echidna characters like Julie-Su and Enerjak, and used thim in his own horrible comics.

Ken Penders never sued Archie. He sued Sega and Activision for "Sonic Chronicles" allegedly infringing on his copyright, and Archie in turn sued HIM.

As a general comment, I've long felt the guiding rule for Sonic fan characters should be "How would this character handle in a game?".

 

If people could use that going forward, we'd see less 'hedgehog head on a human body' designs going forward.
