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.

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.

@  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.

I had the opposite reaction to TR Fort Max, where I bought one and was, like, "Ehhhhh...  I think I may have just wasted a chunk of cash here."

My issue with both Titans so far is someone clearly just designed a giant action figure and then added in half hearted transformation afterwards. Maximus 'base/city' mode is just the figure laying down on its back. You're doing something wrong when a 30 years older toy has a better looking city and ship modes.

Blazemaster from Revenge of the Fallen. Everyone hated the mold and I expected it to suck, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it's a decent figure that just needed some tightening up at the hips to be a proper horrible stilt-monster.

And leaving that big Metroplex joint in the chest while changing the rest of it was just god damn weird.  And making zero effort to make those legs fold up further despite them being just big empty boxes.  The sound gimmick doesn't really make up for it.  Titan Metroplex pretty much does everything better.

 

Sharkticon Megatron looked like such a great toy. It was not.

Not helped by it having misassembled shoulders, either.  On the other hand, I expected FE Bulkhead to be some kind of nightmare from pictures of the transformation, and that ended up being one of my favorites of the entire line.

I always heard Beast Changer, aka Savage Noble, was an awful toy. I picked one up last year and I love it. Awesome dragon monster thing? Check. Demon Werewolf mode? Check. Easy but fun transformation? Check. Definitely a cool toy.

There's a section of the fandom that considers every Beast Machines figure an awful toy.  I love that line.  It's like the most risk-taking line in Transformers history.

 

Which I'll tie back around to the topic on the grounds that I thought most of the Maximals were going to suck from the pictures, but here I am, still liking the hell out of most them.  Except Geckobot.  That toy still sucks.  And looks like it sucks.

Indeed, some hate Beast Machines with a religious fury.  You can find online arguments about how Generations Tankor should have been OG toy accurate instead of show accurate because that show they never watched was horrible so the True© Tankor was the toy.  Only just so they can be as contrary as possible.

I'm just bummed that they could've just scaled-up Tank Drone, and I would've liked that more than the Generations deluxe.

I love all the Vehicons(Even Blast Charge) and have very little love for the Maximals (Save for Night Slashy Cheetor) I wont hide that fact and for the record I bought a great many of them so its not just me saying so for no reason

 

I simply do like what they did and how badly the Maximals got nurfed in show and in toy form

Nurfed as in tone down the there firepower thanks to the shows forunners deciding that. but also Nurfing in a since that that the designers where hand tied as well

 

Some of the Maximals outside the show design where good Buzzsaw, the Shark guy, and few others where better off but man oh man show characters suffered ...poor Silverbolt

RotF Mixmaster, Voyager size. Such a fiddly ball-ache. Robot mode is suitable terrifying and the truck mode is really good, but the effort it takes to go from one to the other... it's one of exactly two toys I will probably never willingly try to play with again.

RID Steeljaw. Not a good way to start a line, and the fact that it was the first (and for months, only) Decepticon figure in the mainline was one of the main reasons a lot of people gave up on the line. Kinda glad I slogged through that and the other early stuff - Quillfire and Scorponok are really good, Bisk is downright amazing, Soundwave looks fantastic, and I'm really hyped for Blurr.

I was not expecting to love TR Kup even a quarter as much as I do. I thought the first pictures we saw made him look abysmal, but bought him as he seemed like he'd look fun crewed by Dia-nauts. He's now one of my favourite Titans Return toys; he's just so fun and surprisingly nice looking in-hand.

IMG_0189.JPG

But the biggest surprise of my trip to Asia has to be this guy; looks badass as all hell, laden with effective-yet-unobtrusive gimmicks, really rather posable, and I just kinda love how his upper legs transform:
