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.

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.

@  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...

Mike now has a Kusari-Gama? Nice! That's an awesome weapon. I like that Nick is going for action oriented programming over the past few years.

mostly ...I'll admit because of Cheetara ... but that may change when we see character designs for April...

And much as it showed off her nice *ahem* figure, I really hope that stays buried in the Fred Wolf toon. But I do hope Mikey at least stays with the Chucks for a bit at least.

I really hope the Kusari-Gama are official or make it to the end stage. They aren't a major change, they are still Nunchuaku but a bit more threatening. And its honestly better then a Grappling Hook.

............Kusarigama are nothing like Nunchaku.

At all.

Nor is it usually as practical in really close quarters combat, like the turtles are oft to do.

I'm not sure I like it being CGI, but it still looks like it could be good. There's still no way it can beat the awesomeness of the 2003 cartoon.
It's time to bring the crunch!

Either way. The Kusarigama was used to entrap an opponent's weapon, get in close, and gut them. It's not a weapon you can effectively used against multiple opponents, or opponents armed with more than one weapon. The Nunchaku though were made to just beat the stuffing out of someone. And when used correctly, are fairly effective. If they want to change the weapon, the best thing to go with is a good pair of Tonfa. Now those things are brutal!

I could have sworn he at least sported it in the movies and the 2K3 series. I know some of the figures have featured it.

Anyway, I look forward to whatever they have planned, especially if they have free reign over all aspects of the property.

In the 2K3 show, the turtles did have differently shaped faces, tho I wonder how many people actually noticed.

Didn't mikey use a Kusarigama in the final few seasons of the original cartoon?

Frankly, it makes SENSE. If they all use CQB weapons, then they lack a ranged response. One of them being dedicated to tying up the bad guys so the others can get in close to maximise their time is perfect strategic sense.

Of course, if the NickToons show draws as much inspiration from the Fred Wolf cartoon as they say, we might end up with robot Foot Soldiers, so that point may not matter so much.

One can only hope. The 2003 series got accuracy to the comics out of it's system, so bringing back robots that allow the turtles to not have to hold back, like in the movies and the 2003 series, would be nice.

I recall a lot of Foot ninja using that weapon in the Mirage-like TMNT cartoon... and somehow, Leonardo was always able to easily cut through the chain with his swords. Mikey's will be better made from adamantium. icon-hotrod.gif
