@  Nevermore : (23 October 2017 - 09:46 PM)

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...

@  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.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Got replacements, so yeah. Main thing is, if you hear a weird scratchy noise in your headphones it might not be static..

@  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-

@  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!

Expected! And probably really damn gorgeous. 

 

Now I need to decide if TFSS Scourge is my buddy-commander for Baldigus or if I need this. I guess it'll depend on Diac - If he's named/decoed as Junko or Kelly... no resistance!

Tempting, but between price/availability and the need to prioritize which version of a mold to get, this is likely not an option for me. I'll be content with TFSS Scourge.

You know what this means, guys? We might be getting even more of the post-Car Robots Gelshark/Black Convoy/Baldigus storyline that began in Gelshark's Legends comic, continued in Black Convoy's previous Legends comic, and carried over into Baldigus's two Unite Warriors online comics. :love

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

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 wonder, since the toy is a Headmaster and since Black Convoy once tried to control a Headmaster, if this toy might fictionally represent Black Convoy creating his own Head On System to put himself on more even footing with Brave Maximus.

That's not how JG1 headmasters work.

Also, why would Kelly ever work for Scourge?

Maybe not ACTUALLY her, but something that represents the part of her duplicated inside of him. She was driving the big rig that his pod scanned, so he's as much her as he is Megatron and Optimus.

 

It's how he was able to exert whatever limited control he could over Brave Maximus when none of the other Transformers could.

That is a logical prediction.

Say, Sabr, you have recently watched Car Robots, yes? To you does it look like "Brave" and "Brave Maximus" are just Plasma with a changed name, à la the JG1 Headmasters reverse-engineered from them? Or rather are they actually 3 distinct bonded individuals, as the Hasbro-based wiki writeup goes? Or is it too ambiguous to discern given that Brave Maximus only appeared in a few episodes?

On that note, I just realized that Black Convoy and his crew could plausibly go for Brave Maximus in their next story, since Legends and Unite Warriors randomly gave him time-travel capability.

Visit the Transformers Wiki and the IDW Hasbro Wiki!

Plasma spoke of himself, Brave, and Cybertron City as three separate things, but of those three, only Plasma seems to be alive when all three are separated. Plasma and Brave together constitute the Head On System, which then unites with Cybertron City to become Brave Maximus. It's more akin to the Japanese take on Headmasters than not, but with each component given its own unique designation, while only Plasma retains some semblance of sentience when each component is not combined together.

 

This was pretty much the same for the English dub, with Plasma being "Cerebros", Brave being "the Emissary", and Brave Maximus being "Fortress Maximus", with the exceptions of the Head On System having no counterpart dub name (and not existing as a concept in the dub) and Cybertron City still being called "Fortress Maximus" regardless of mode.

They may just redeco Black Convoy's head as Gigatron / Devil Gigatron as a way to smuggle him out of prison.
