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.

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

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...

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.

Anyway, seems pretty busy and blocky, like most of the 3P combiners I've seen. I like Afterpurner's bike mode, but I couldn't see that there was a pic of his robot mode.

That seems less like Computron and more like a combiner that coincidentally uses some individual bots that happen to share somewhat similar alt modes.

 

Is this new for them? No longer copying and oversizing existing 3Ps but going their own way? Regardless, this holds no interest for me.

I don't think it can possibly be a coincidence - you're not just randomly going to include a space bike, a drill tank,, a forked space jet and a space-jet-that-is-a-cannon picking altmodes out of a hat - but it is also a bizarrely re-envisioned Computron for a modern third party. Especially since the torso appears to be "Strafe" and "Lightspeed" and the arms are a bisected "Scattershot".

 

I think it's neat, but is there really a modern market for something this big and this non-preexisting?

Kevin S, they're actually both in the link along with the individual vehicle modes minus Afterburner, etc.

 

It's really lovely to see something this unique and original in the 3P space again that isn't an MMC premold, and the combination scheme is clever and well executed. I can't get over the choice to make them all the same size and result in this giant car and motorcycle, especially looking back to Make Toys' Quantron (which of course had its own execution problems) where the vehicles made for such a lovely and diverse spread that actually looked good together. 


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?

If this kicks off Wei Jiang doing their own thing, still matching Hasbro plastic and build quality, and continuing to be affordable all at the same time, we could see some very interesting stuff coming our way.

Looking at the "Defensor" in the TFW thread, they've done "just the same vehicles" combiner teams before.

I think I've seen a similar "Bruticus" as well, though I'm not sure who it was by.

Oh, I don't think it's coincidence. More that they are so different in most every other way that their similarities seem like an accident.

Not sure who it is, but that's not a Defensor I don't think. Not unless Streetwise is an excavator now.

Man, the concept art for the vehicle modes is way more convincing than the final product in most cases and I think this guy would have made some sense if they could have made it happen, but kudos for an entirely credible mole tank, which might be the first time in TF and TF3P.

Not that credible - the largest part of the drill is still smaller than the smallest part of the rest of the vehicle.
