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...

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.

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...

Here's something that's been puzzling me:

On the splash page of B&W preview art for Infiltration #3, does anyone have any idea who the second Autobot from the right is? It looks like his alt mode is a Ferrari Testarossa, so it *could* be Freeway of the Throttlebots, but it's hard to tell with his back turned. icon-depth.gif

Well, logically, it has to be either Sunstreaker or Wheeljack.

Here's a question.

Will Grimlock see a redesign? A more modern interpretation of the T-Rex that transforms in a classic fashion?

...because they're the only remaining confirmed members of the cast. I believe it's Wheeljack, because you can see Sunstreaker in the full-size preview pic posted online a while ago:


"I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, de-briefed, or numbered! My life is my own!"
-- No. 6, Arrival

"Chance works quite nicely if it has a canvas the size of the Universe to work with."

So, looking at the preview pic on IDW's website (the Art du Jour mentioned on the front page) for Infiltration #4, it looks like Bumblebee has a female hologram. That's...odd...

Maybe for Beast Wars. I certainly doubt we'll see a retrofit of MTMTE for G1 -- it was very tied to Dreamwave's continuity, has the old designs (butchered, in some cases, by the art and colouring) but is recent enough that IDW probably wouldn't want to target the same market.

Cybertron... would probably depend on whether they did a Transformers: Cybertron comic.

edit: Mass-market comic. I think they're doing something for the fanclub.

I don't think anyone answerd this on the old board so I'm going to ask again:

Does anyone think that it's odd that Thundercracker has blue optics when it seems like IDW is going with the 'bots have blue and 'cons have red and yellow? Could the picture in the lineup be some kind of foreshadowing? Like how Ratchet pointed out that he was just a grunt and didn't take perverse pleasure in hurting others like Runabout and Runamuck. Or am I just grasping at straws? icon-depth.gif

I think this was asked recently but...
do the collected and reprinted Marvel UK comics cover all the issues? I thought I heard that they didn't, because they were initiated by one of the artists, so it only had issues he did. I take it then that there's little chance of the un-re-issued comics ever being re-issued?
I thought I remembered a list of issues the reprinted collected works covered, and it seemed pretty complete, at least for what they had released so far. are they not going to go all the way to issue 1?
of the USA Marvel run, I own originals of all but 2 of the 80-issue series. I've only ever seen a torrent for it once, and it didn't work.

IDW would be more likely to reprint the Marvel Transformers Universe, complete with the extra entries in the G1 comic.

Not quite sure what you're asking, so...

Stuff that Titan didn't reprint:

Stuff they did:

What's in the original Collected Comics issues:
http://tfarchive.com...php?s=collected

Titan didn't reprint some stuff basically because Furman doesn't like his early work.

Kinda off topic, but I don't know where else to post this question:

Does anyone else do online comic subscriptions and have them mailed to your house? My only comic shop is about 30 minutes away and it is a pain in the fender to get to. I was researching some earlier today, but didn't find too much, plus I'm not sure how to get an incentive cover if I see one I like.

www.mailmemycomics.com sells TFs subs for cover price plus $1for postage (per ish), each one sent an insulated mailer. They only list Infiltration, but if you e-mail them they'll hook you up with Beast Wars, Stormwhatever & Hearts of Steel too.

So Hearts of Steel just got me back into comic shops, and I found and bought all of War Within Volume 2, having only ever read Volume 1. Should I bother to pick up Volume 3? I know it isn't finished, but are the 3 issues that were released worth picking up? Is there any kind of ending?

Well, it's fairly easy to see where things were going, because we got the solicitations at the time -- more would be discovered about what Megs had been up to, followed by Prime coming back and a big fight.

I'd wait to see if it gets a direct-to-trade conclusion first, personally.
