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.

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.

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.

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)

Got the idea for Thunderwing from a couple digibashes(at least I think they were) I had seen some time ago using the movie Megatron mold. I like the idea of Thunderwing's size being more comparable to other leader figures in the classics line so I went with the movie voyager Megatron mold instead of the leader.

I resculpted the wings cutting and sanding them down then used modeling putty to finish them. Added the extra knee spikes using black Millput. The chest was cut from the existing chestplate for the mold, sanded down and more putty added smooth it out a little better.

He was then painted using various colors of Krylon Fusion and Testors Model Master paints for the details. Then Reprolabels Decepticon stickers to finish him off.









Hes still not quite finished as I need to paint the hands and sand down the inside of the gauntlets so the hands slide back a little farther but overall I'm quite pleased. Also want to go back and rework the red cockpit area so it looks a little more coherent.

Sideswipe has the leg mod to look more destinctive from sunstreaker and added paint details to the legs.

The launcher was made from a G1 Sideswipe launcher cut down to be a little shorter and put back together with Millput and Guerrilla Glue so it does not fire.

The backpack was taken from a THS 02 Convoy set that was broken, moded with the original engine accessory with millput and has added holes added to the sides to hold the shoulder cannon and gun for weapon storage in robot mode and overall variety of cannon placement. It also adds a weapon pack to vehicle mode to hold the added parts as well as being a throwback to his G2 days in a sense.

Prowl is painted to look more like his G1 toy. Always thought the initial figure was a little bland.

Krylon fusion was used for the black and silver details as well as the yellow highlights. A mix of testors blue and white was used on the headlights. And Reprolabels to finish of the look.

Added a nightstick from a KO Alt. Prowl to give him an extra weapon, as I always liked the idea of his energon nightstick.

Roadbuster uses the repaint of the Universe repaint with tome modded G1 Roadbuster weapons to fit the various minicon ports on his arms. I moded the energon key storage area on his leg to fit the rifle in vehicle mode. Also added a storage area for his knife behind his arm when not on use.

The extra parts like the head, Linear Blaster Gun, antenna, and grenades on the side of his leg were all taken from a small non transforming Mugen Calibur figure and fitted to the figure. They were dyed to at least make them a slight shade of green for the figure. The label sheet was also used to give Roadbuster some of his sticker details.

Short and sweet. Sanded a handle down on a Starsaber minicon so it could fit in Hot Shots hand as he's just not complete without his blade of destiny. icon-fire.gif

Why didn't you just sand out the inside of Hot Shot's hand so he can use any 5mm handle? That's what I did, at any rate. It doesn't require sacrificing a Starsaber, either. I sanded the forearm holes to 5mm on my Classics version, too, since he doesn't have anything to plug in there.

As funny as this is going to sound given the topic I really try not to mod the figures themselves in case I happen to need to get rid of the figure at some point. Besides I have only one Henkei Hotshot and tons of starsabers, that particular moded minicon was found by himself at a garage sale so I felt it was justified, and with Hotshot there allready having two cannons I don't feel the need to give him another gun or weapon in general, so hes complete.

Sweet Primus, those Roadbuster and Sideswipe accessories/mods are awesome, and I really like the "energon nightstick" for Prowl. I hope you wouldn't be offended if I follow your example with my own customizing. I did notice the legs on Sideswipe, but the "leg mod" is news to me. What does it entail?

That cockpit bubble on Thunderwing looks SO damn familiar somehow...it's gonna bug me until I figger it out.

Nice work. I was thinking of doing a Thunderwing custom like that but I think I'm going to try something different. Looks like BW Inferno's butt on top of the alt mode? I guess they could be Inferno's hands too.

In relation to how that cockpit "bugs..." is that BW Inferno's ass? icon-fire.gif

I'm not Antifa, I'm not violent. But try to look at it from my perspective for 5 seconds. I see 1 side who wants my hugging blood. Literally. And I see another standing in opposition of them, clearly willing to take any stance they need to to stop them. Then I see a bunch of people hemming and hawing and wringing their hands about the whole thing.

 

Who am I supposed to feel more protected by?
