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.

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.

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)

@  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.

One thing I note with Bumblebee is that I'm pretty certain at this point that he's slightly mistransformed.  Pretty sure the rear wheels flip in to fill his ankle area, which will be great to finally have that detail properly replicated in plastic for once (and few Bumblebees have the wheels pinned to his ankles, but it's not quite the same as having them embedded in his ankles).  You can see that there's a suspiciously large gap in his ankles, with the support struts being conspicuously offset.

 

Also, his chest should close up tighter than that in robot mode.  You can see that the left headlight panel isn't collapsed as far as the right side one, so his chest should look narrower and a tad more accurate.

 

Yay, finally a transforming Bumblebee that has his two little "sub-wings".

^ Dang what's the excuse for that? Though it is pretty as hell.

 

And making a second Masterpiece design (third large design) for a version of Bumblebee that's not even in the films anymore is kind of weirdly lateral?

Oh, okay.  So this is something completely different than I own already (in regards to Masterpiece Movie Bumblebee).

 

I might be interested if it's a better attempt at the iconic design then they created before.

Yeah, you can see it properly transformed in these stock photos:

Definitely the best transforming representation of the design to date.

I didn't bite on that AoE leader before, and while I am disappointed that the new toolings were ignored, that DOES look awesome.

Glad the new Optimus is just a repaint so I can just buy the voyager that does look great and be on my way.

 

That Bumblebee is GORGEOUS. Hope one day I have enough money to get one.

Why.....why wouldn't they use the movie-accurate Armored Knight tooling? Is it not available? Is there some kind of rights issue? Like, that makes no sense. It exists, and it's more screen-accurate, and I doubt the tooling itself is somehow, like premium without the paint job. And this is possibly an asia exclusive anyway if it is! GAH.

 

That MP Bumblebee though. How big is it? I think I'm over movie stuff, but it DOES look nice.

Maybe there's more parts?  Or it's tied up with something else possibly?

 

Or more likely they figure this is an easy cash grab and the other tooling is slightly more expensive to produce.

Not having owned it, the only difference in terms of actual parts count spotted from all the detailed photos was a removable mouthplate. Aside from that, it was just, like, changes to the surface details.

 

I mean, I feel like you're right, it's just a bleh situation because that's a great deco gone to waste.

Bumblebee looks fantastic; I'm not sure I need him in a post-3A world, with the number of other transforming Bees I have, but I am thrilled to see (like archon said) one that finally has all four wings.

Interesting that 'Bee continues the old Movie Masterpiece numbering, I guess it's technically a Takara product which Hasbro Asia is importing as per usual.

It looks exceedingly dull to me, especially the "muddy" bit, so you aren't exactly alone on that one.  The truck mode looks a test shot.  I mean that in a bad way, not a literal one.

The retool added wrists.

The light gray upper arms on that Prime are a bit of a poor match with the rest of him.
