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.

@  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)

@  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)

Yes - here is more information - https://www.battleforthenet.com/

@  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.

And Sequoia too.

 

Brushfire looks like he has elbow joints! :o

 

A pity this comes out just after the show seems to have ended too.

Man, Brushfire looks great. Also, has a giant axe that turns into a bear, so maybe don't hug with Brushfire, Rescue Bot or not.

He turns into an ATV.

 

Here's the original Seibertron news post that showed the first look at Brushfire before the one Verity linked to was written:

Sequoia doesn't come with Brushfire. That's Sequoia's packaging featuring Brushfire wielding Sequoia in tool mode.

Brushfire is pretty awesome. Looks like a pretty unique alt mode too.

He turns into an ATV.

By standing on end and rotating that one section in his torso, so I don't think that was a mystery. But it's definitely unique in TF. All the more so for the treads. (Real ATVs can use real treads that really are separate front and back units, but they replace all four wheels.)

 

I know there's an unmemorable and unmentionable Minicon or two with an ATV mode somewhere in the depths of the wiki, but among things that count, this is an entirely unique alt mode. 


Edited by Copper Bezel, 21 December 2016 - 01:26 PM.

Shouldn't gravity be doing something?

 

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Brushfire's vehicle mode is on Copter Crane Blades's packaging.  And Sequoia is available on Amazon, but for rather more than $5.  Probably a reseller who's planning to fulfil the order once his shipment comics in, not someone who has it in stock.

Yeah, it's an off-road/mountain ATV with a half-track package instead 4 wheels (but, you know, it still has 2 wheels so not TR Brawn).

 

I don't think we've had anything like that before.

TR Brawn's little Action Master partner is an ATV? I thought it was more of a jeep. I hadn't made the connection in that case to ATV tread packages, though I can see that now.

I think it's unlikely that anyone will ever be able to say that Sequoia is a girl, because I doubt Sequoia is ever going to get any fictional appearances.

The Rescue Bots Mini-Cons certainly don't have any kind of personality information on the packaging. In fact, none of the Rescue Bots have at all since the change to the Heroes packaging style... except for Hoist and Medix, who kept theirs from the previous style.

Maybe there are personal pronouns in the marketing text? I don't know where you would find it, though, since Valor and Swift aren't even on Hasbro's site anymore.

I'm fairly confident that the author of the news post was just making an assumption based on the "-ia" in the Mini-Con's name.
