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.

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)

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  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.

No idea of this site's reputability. 

 

Apparently written by Jason Aaron (TFwiki shows no prior TF experience, but I guess he worked on some top Marvel stuff); release date is November 2018. 

 

????????

 

EDIT: The author seems to be convinced the show will take place after Beast Machines, despite featuring mostly first season BW characters and...Magmatron?

 

this is weird

It really seems made-up to me given how the site is set up to make you click through a bunch of pictures.

 

But that is some oddly specific information.

Unsourced fanart pictures at that, by the look of it. 

 

So weird.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?

 

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I can't see Hasbro doing any sort of animation that isn't supporting new product, and I can't see them launching yet another new line in competition with RID, Generations, Last Knight, and are new Rescue Bots toys still coming out?

I like that it ends with Magmatron. Like, I'm excited about Magmatron inexplicably being in something in 2018.

 

Nothing about this makes sense, but that includes "making it up in the first place" - this guy certainly seems to understand it poorly enough that I'm sure he's not the origin.

 

Anyway, I really like Jason Aaron, and he's mostly written books about characters I don't care about or actively dislike, so a BW by Aaron would be interesting to me.

"Netflix Beast Wars" is startling but plausible.

"--that's actually a sequel to Beast Machines" is not plausible. At all.

I had to look him up and I noticed he's writing the Star Wars comic I've been reading for two years. I could tell you the names of the writers of every other comic I follow, but I can't remember his name for some reason.

... Scorponok is there but Dinobot isn't?
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

"--that's actually a sequel to Beast Machines" is not plausible. At all.

To be fair, that part does seem phrased to be, uh, Gary Commodore's speculation, as opposed to anything coming from his Awesome Inside Source.

Not that this is the best litmus test, but that article is 2 days old, and there's NO mention of this project in Jason Aaron's Twitter feed.  (Usually people are like, "FINALLY I can tell y'all about this thing I'm working on!")

 

It would be nice if Hasbro took advantage of the Netflix model to do stuff targeted to the older fans, but this seems really hard to believe.

Yeah, it would be just really interesting and cool if Hasbro could partner with someone to create a new series, maybe based on existing characters or lines, exclusively for online streaming, and gear it toward adult fans of the franchise to deliver a more mature story in animation form.
