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.

@  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.

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)

@  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.

I seriously cannot see anything beyond shades of silver and gray and a tiny bit of gold in that CG model's armor. The red eye is the only other bit of color I can see on it.

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.

So glad that Megs mold finally got this lovely color scheme on it, with a seemingly good paint budget at that. I've seen complaints of "why didn't they do the Leader", but that only makes sense if you consider rarity rather than whether or not it's HAD this deco. This is a nice design and it looks great done up in this deco.

Shockwave... I always read it as a violet, that is, closer to blue than to red, so this looks about right to my eyes.

People in Japan reporting QC problems with Starscream and Soundwave as well. Haven't opened mine yet. 

 

My Bumblebee didn't seem too bad, just one of his hip panels wouldn't fold back all the way until I shaved off some plastic in the joint.  Getting it back into car mode also needed some panel massaging, but I'm not sure if it was any worse than previous releases of the mold.

Also, Ironhide's instructions are apparently hard to understand (not sure if they're significantly different from previous releases), and people have been getting stress marks trying to get the head out when transforming to robot mode.  Also looks like some people might be having QC issues with him.

Eh, Leader's proportions are way better.  Voyager has a slightly more inventive transformation scheme, but the end result is an extra wide torso, with wideset and small legs.

 

Leader also has way cooler weapons.

I remember having that problem with the original release - it happens if you don't slide the posts the arms are on all the way out. IIRC it's the kind of thing where you need a little extra pressure to pop them into the final position, so it's easy to unwittingly not pull them out fully.

One glaring omission in this and their AOE rerelease items is Leadfoot. He didn't get a really widespread release in DOTM, and it'd be nice for people to get another shot at him. Of course I have no idea if there may be licensing and technical whatevers in the way.

Can't seem to get the head/windshield assembly to lock in during robot mode.  Googled and saw that several others (including Jeremy here on the Allspark) had this problem, so I guess it's not supposed to lock in?

I'm still holding out hope, we've not seen Takara's TLK line yet, and who says that Movie Best is over. It's a tiny sliver of hope that's constantly shrinking, but it's still hope.

 

Of course, that still won't get us a full set of accurate Wreckers in the same scale...
