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.

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)

@  Darth Gonzo : (17 October 2017 - 05:36 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.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

I don't know why we're even bothering; there's no way in hell a GOP-controlled congress would listen to common proles like us.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:32 PM)

Yeah, so did I.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Okay, so I just got a pop up telling me I need to call congress about the FCC killing net neutrality. Anyone else get that?

@  Dracula : (17 October 2017 - 09:45 AM)

I'd probably use a primer coat on either of them.

@  unluckiness : (17 October 2017 - 07:21 AM)

Wonder if Overboard or Crashbash would be easier to paint over. Generally dark colors are harder but then again, screaming fuschia seems like it'd be difficult to cover too.

Tomato, Tomahto. He used a weight on a long chain. It's just that it was pointed.


Er, I wouldn't go that far. Saying a grappling line and a kusarigama are the same thing because they have chains and you swing them is like saying a hammer and an axe are the same thing because they have handles and you hit things with them.

Well, regardless, the weapon Mikey used later in the Fred Wolf version was actually a a type of kusari, or at least it was called that.

http://en.wikipedia..../Manriki-gusari

The -gama part actually refers to the kama (sickle) attachment. So the full name of Mikey's old alternate weapon would be manriki-gusari kaginawa (ten thousand power chain with grappling hook).

In form and function the two only really differ slightly. The key difference being that mikey could climb away over a sheer surface with one far more easily.

Frankly, I'm surprised it took them this long to give even one of them a weapon or tool that they keep around and works at farther than arm's reach. Given how often their shot at, I'm surprised they didn't start carrying around bows or slings for themselves.

Looks like Don now has a Glaive, so now all the Turtles have more or less bladed weapons. Yeah I know Sais are piercing weapons, but the toons tend make them into Slashing weapons.

That looks way better than I thought it would. I was expecting it to look like Nick's other CGI shows which I hate. These designs look like Nick is actually trying. To early to tell, but it has promise.

EDIT: Oh, and I love that my favorite Turtle gets a better weapon than a stick. Did they change Mike's any? Didn't get a good look at his.

Skill levels being equal, I'd take a fighter with a staff over a fighter with a sword any day.

Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

But Don isn't as skilled as Leo, so he kind of needs a weapons upgrade. I think Don is built for defense and the reach of staff weapons aids that, but he's lacking in skill to use the bo offensively. The blade should help do more damage when he does attack.

So are the Turtles going to be using secondary weapons as well as they ones we all know and love? I think that would be an interesting idea.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
while that kinda bothers me as well, it makes some logical sense. Humans have an equal finger/toe ratio, so since the turtles have three fingers, they decided to give them a third toe to even them up as well.
