@  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.

@  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.

Least it wasn't a weird scratchy noise IN YOUR BRAIN.  Or was it.  Maybe you found it after it crawled out?

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2017 - 01:34 AM)

Got replacements, so yeah. Main thing is, if you hear a weird scratchy noise in your headphones it might not be static..

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 October 2017 - 01:28 AM)

Nuke the headphones from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2017 - 09:04 PM)

It's interesting how life gives you a good thing and then a bad thing. Like, just got my tax return and it was quite robust, and then I found an INCH LONG EARWIG IN MY HEADPHONES. AHHHHH-

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)

How many versions have there been of Transformers with smaller partners from Gen.1 until now?


Speaking strictly in terms of sublines? Headmasters, Targetmasters, Powermasters, Action Masters, Pretenders (sort of,) the Unicron Trilogy, Power Core Combiners, Human Alliance... those are about the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.

Scientifically speaking, they're the byproducts of having way more brainpower than we need for simple survival. If we didn't have them, we'd just be apes, scratching around in the mud and flinging poop at each other.

We would probably just be doing what the apes did in the begining of Mel Brooks' 'History of the world part one'

If Pokemon were real, how often would people be tempted to release a Snorlax a few feet above someone's (empty) car, allow the heavy, durable lug to crash down on said car, then recall it and flee for fast, major vandalism?

If I recall correctly, actually catching a Snorlax was pretty difficult in the show, so I don't think they'd be too common. There are plenty of bigger, more destructive, easier-to-catch pocket monsters that could be turned to criminal ends.

Got a video game question for you:in the game Grand Theft Auto,when I get all the way to the bridge and use the jetpack code to fly on top of it,I can walk out to the end and then a little further and it looks like C.J. is walking on something invisible.How is this done?

Why is it so hard for people to accept that by their very existence they will be biased in some manner? Is it because "bias" is such a negative buzz word? To truly avoid bias, you'd probably have to be omniscient; I am not the type to claim that perspective determines truth, but I'd be a fool to ignore how it affects a person. I mean, all the times I look and can't find something because I wasn't at the right height or angle and the object in question was simply blocked from my view.

Maybe you have a bias against unbiased people which leads you to believe that they can't possibly be right because it contradicts with your own biased view.

Step the first: Make sure he hasn't evacuated his digestive tract on anything other than himself.
Step the second: Figure out if he owes me any money and extract the balance from his wallet.
Step the third: Buy him a Monster Rehab and some ibuprophen* and place them near him for easy consumption upon resumption of consciousness.
Step the last: Bid him farewell, make plans to do it all again next time he's in port, send him on his way.

*Monster Rehab + two ibuprophens = best hangover cure ever, I jive you not.
