i watched his latest Netflix special. hilarious & heartbreaking at teh same time...

@  RichardT1977 : (21 October 2017 - 12:07 PM)

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)

It's interesting how life gives you a good thing and then a bad thing. Like, just got my tax return and it was quite robust, and then I found an INCH LONG EARWIG IN MY HEADPHONES. AHHHHH-

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...

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.

Most Armada toys were pretty fun IMO, to be honest. I might be biased because they were part of my childhood (I grew up with BW and the UT), but I love the Mini-Con gimmick. I like the idea of smaller robots attaching to bigger robots and powering them up. It's probably why I like TR way more than CW.

I don't know if it counts, but Titans Return singlehandedly changed my opinion on Headmasters to a very positive one.

Also, every time I buy a CW figure nowadays I believe I'll be bored with it instantly, but damn if Bluestreak and Impactor haven't proven endlessly fun.

I don't get all the dislike for RiD Steeljaw... he's not a favorite from the line but I dig his vehicle mode and the fact that he's a digitigrade wolf in robot mode was one of the niftiest things I'd seen thus far.

I like Demolishor a lot, he's the only Armada figure I think wouldn't be better executed if they did the whole line again now.

Armada was fantastic. Even everyone's favorite "worst toy ever" Sideswipe had an addictive gimmick and cool weapons.

As far as the Armada had a couple of good toys at the beginning of the line. Demolisher and Cyclonus had great minicons that really fit into their toy designs.  Later on we go some good to decent toys like Tidalwave, Thrust, and Bendy Prime. For the most part though, the line isn't worth pulling out of the rubbermaid bin.

 

Energon had some great toys that paid homage to G1, like Battle Ravage, Rodimus, Prowl,  INsecticon, starscream, Skyblast, Scorponok, Megatron, Omega Supreme, and the first combiners in years! However, this line introduced me to the Terracon Horde and its leader, Divebomb. Divebomb was the first TF toy that I got that I had no idea how awesome he would be. Definitely one of my favorite toys and one that I think best fits the topic for me.

Armada...wasn't a very good toyline if you like articulation and show-accuracy, but holy hell did it make up for it in sheer fun gimmicks. I'd say the closest to it would be Fast Action Battlers.

I think it's weird that people consider Sideswipe the worst toy because he isn't even the worst "deluxe" Armada Autobot. I don't particularly like him, but I'd rather buy him again than Blurr or Smokescreen.
