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...

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.

@  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.

I've seen the first two episodes, and I like it.

 

What I love is that basically everybody except for Archie has been updated with the times, while remaining true to the spirit of the comic books.  Archie is a lovable, yet naive, good-hearted goof.

 

In addition to the typical CW relationship drama, there's a murder mystery and a noir feel thrown into the mix.  If you're into cheesey teen dramas, this one is definitely better than most and worth your time.

 

If you're into Archie, I think you'll be able to tell if this is for you after a couple episodes, and those that have enjoyed the recent further-reaching adaptations in the comic books will likely get a kick out of this.

 

If the only part of the Arrow-verse you enjoy is easter-egg references to comic books in between ass-kicking, this may not be your cup of tea.

I liked the first episode, though dark and edgy Riverdale is pretty hard to swallow. I hope Aguirre-Sacasa doesn't bring too much of Afterlife with Archie to the show. I mean, great book (if you're into that sort of thing) but even without the zombies I don't think we need the show to go that far.

Mostly I have my fingers crossed for Hot Dog.

This show is like eating a bag of potato chips. You know it's not good for you, and will probably come back to haunt you later, but you just can't seem to quit it until it's over.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

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.

I've only seen the first episode so far, but I mostly enjoy it. Its a pretty good send up to the Archieverse and its characters, while also being the sorta typical CW Drama.

Watched the first episode but not big into either the teen drama genre or Archie to keep it going. I'll watch it if it's on maybe but I don't think I'm going to keep it going as I would the Arrowverse shows. The Superman spin is what kept me with Smallville all ten seasons even for the lackluster payoff. Archie just isn't going to draw me in long term.

The thing that seems to be keeping me going with it is that it seems to have an ongoing serialized narrative that will continue from episode to episode with the mystery surrounding Jason's death driving the story forward.

Saw two eps. I think it's too easy to have any main character seen so far be the killer. Maybe someone will appear mid season to be the killer. Too easy to be Cheryl or Betty's mom.

Who the hell is Polly? Did Betty really have a sister?

Grundy is, well, wow. It's not the real Grundy tho. The comic Grundy is Gertrude and this one is Geraldine.

I feel that Reggie should be scheming and more involved here. Kevin has a bigger role than him and Reggie is a classic main cast guy.

Kinda disappointed in loner, unfunny Jughead. He's the coolest guy in the comics for me and here, he's so dark, haha.

I'm digging it so far. I do think it's pretty cheesy, but I do eat that stuff up. 

 

I do love Jughead's narration over the episode and the very 'Twin Peaks' feel to the mood. I'm excited to see where it goes.

 

Also, I'm wondering how you can follow up with Season 2. Will there be another murder? A disappearance? I just see themselves having issues topping the murder from this season.

I looked some of this up after the first episode, since some things didn't match with my memories of Archie:

 

Betty has an older Brother and Sister, though they were apparently kinda non-canon for a bit only showing up n 'Lil Archie' comics to be a more 'adult' presence. They came into offical canon in the 90's with their absences explained due to having Jobs away from Riverdale. Also, Betty's Mom being kinda a bitch is different from the comics as well.

 

Jughead's personality here seems to be shaped by Jason's Death and whatever cuased him and Archie to no longer be as close as they were. 

 

Regie is apparently gonna get more focus as the season goes on, based on a bit I read about upcoming character.

My money's on Ms. Grundy.

She could turn out to be the obsessive-type who was also sleeping with Jason and shot him after he dumped her or threatened to make their relationship public.

The end of episode 2 tells us the gunshot they heard isn't the one that killed him since they say he died a week later.

I'm actually wondering if it'll be like the comics where there's no continuity and season 2 will be Veronica arriving again and there's a different mystery, haha.

I did see Betty's mom and dad in the comics before but they barely register. It's was Fred, Archie's mom and Mr Lodge who were always around. I don't recall Fred being a construction guy but it was a good excuse to explain how Archie got hot, haha.

Aw, I suddenly miss the Mr Lodge and Smothers dynamic of can't standing Archie.

This time, it'll be Cheryl who died and Jason will be the school's grieving big man on campus.

 

Instead of Archie taking Jason's football number, Betty or Veronica will take Cheryl's cheerleading position.

Episode 3 recap:  Betty is straight up cray-cray. The scarlet lipstick...the wig...incarnating her allegedly cray-cray sister...GOLD!

 

 

Line of the episode:

 

Archie's Dad:  I met your met your music teacher last night.  Yeah, Miss Grundy?  Whoa. They did not look like that back in my day, son.

 

 

For being an obvious over-the-top guilty pleasure, this show is WAY better than it has any right to be!

I had a different answer in mind when Josie asked Archie why they were called the Pussycats.

I'm sorry. (Hahahaha)

Ethel's name appeared on the book twice. (Btw, she's really Barb from Stranger Things?) And I saw Midge listed and followed by 'Go Moose!'.

I thought episode three was a bit disappointing, it just all felt a bit clunky to me, like the dialogue could have used an extra polish or the execution was just a bit off. And I'm worried that Betty's a bit too crazy. And everything that has anything to do with Cheryl is just kind of insufferably stupid. 

 

But on the whole, still enjoying the show a lot. Big Luke Perry fan (best Buffy character) and loving Cole Sprouse's Jughead. For some reason.
