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.

@  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.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:46 PM)

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...

@  2017 : (17 October 2017 - 05:56 PM)

@  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.

My DCUC Wave 19 arrived last week. Very cool sculpts all around, with the exception of Stargirl, who is even worse in person. She's a bit of a disaster. I'm going to try and fix her abdomen and face, but so far, I've just made her like a chainsaw sculpture.

Army builders aside, I have nine figures in transit to me, and then I'll have only six individual characters to own before I can consider my DCIH collection complete.

Thanks for starting the thread! I considered it the other day, but stopped for some reason.



As for wave 19, it will ship to me as soon as I change all my shipping info over to the new house. Kinda sad Stargirl looks like such a freak. My daughter really wants me to buy one for her...

STRIPE makes the whole wave worth it. I know little of the character, but I love the figure.

As for Stargirl, she looks like this: http://thefwoosh.com...rt-i#more-17971

Only her torso was even more messed up on mine. It's molded in flesh colored plastic, then painted blue, then flesh paint on top, and it looked awful. The casting quality was really crummy too. Add the bizzaro-muffin-top, jokerface, and kinda odd proportions of the small female DC buck, and it's a really tough figure to love.

I'd be all for the rehash of BB but needs some wings. Larfleeze is cool but don't the different Lanterns of the different corps have funky looking handles. SB Prime looks like he needs another head resculpt. And whos the Plas wannabe? Looks too serious to be Plastic Man.

As a club member, I am very happy not to be receiving any of these.

I agree with Daith, Superboy has a pinhead. Larfleez looks worse then his DC Direct version. Plastic Man comes from a mini I didn't read, and which sounds awful.

BB goes fairly high on ebay so I can't really fault that one.

Brainiac needed Koko, so I gave him Koko:


And by mistake an online store sent me the wrong figure and let me keep it free, so I put it to use making that timeless Jim Lee character that's bound to be forever remembered by the common consciousness as one of the greatest characters ever to see print: Deathblow!

I know some Wildstorm characters were folded in the DCnU... has he?
Regardless, he does have his uses:

And today, I found out Mattel did a single-carded version of the poseable DCIH Batman included in the many Public Enemies multipacks.

But this one sports a nicer bat-sigil, a nicer skintone on the face AND a nicer contrast between the gray and the black. And it comes with a spiffy button.
So naturally, best I can figure, it's hella rare:

Terry looks quite odd done in the mainstream DC style, imho.

I have seen the 12-inch Movie Hal Jordan, and man, that is one ugly toy. Light-up feature actually looks quite cool, but it is just overall not as articulated as a toy of such height should be.

I know I am probably the only one collecting the line, but... any news of that supposed third Mattycollector GL Movie Masters toy? Still hoping for Stel, or Hannu...

It's something I've noticed more and more of late, but it seems toy companies have now decided that the bigger the toy, the lesser the articulation.

Hasbro's been doing the same with its larger Marvel toys.

Thanks to finding a capeless Robin in a DCIH lot I needed to fill gaps in my collection, I managed to make a human-form Beast Boy!
Took a few liberties with the color scheme since the details varied depending on the era/medium.

The Bat-family keeps it real in the Batcave!

Hopefully I can find good base parts for Oracle so she can join them.


As an aside, I love this little playset. It doesn't take up much space because everything closes up into a small case, and it has tons of neat details. I'll have to do some mods, like removing the sticker of Bruce Wayne's action figure from the rotating wall and painting the bat-gadgets on the wall and the workbench.
