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.

@  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.

QUOTE
Someone named EVN tipped me off in email about some upcoming McDonalds, so I called the them up to confirm it.

Apparently another wave of ponies is planned for March 9th (though she told me not to quote her on that exact date), along with Transformers on the boys side. They don't know specifically what characters/designs will be available, but she did say they usually try to release new sets, so hopefully something awesome pops up.

I was also told that this is going to be a huge promotion, and they expect to sell out of them pretty quickly. I guess our rabid collecting last time around tipped them off? We didn't have much access to blind bags back then, so these and the five piece molded set were the only show accurate stuff we could get our hands on (Even if McDonalds toys aren't really known for their quality). It sure was funny trying to sneak into McDonalds incognito style only to be called out as the third guy to come looking for ponies for his "Niece" or "Sister". I'm sure it will be twice as funny this time around.


Wow, perfect McDs promotion for our site icon-fire.gif

Ack double the Happy meal buying icon-screamer.gif Lots of mcnuggets and cheeseburgers for me. And yes I know it's possible to buy them seperate. I'd rather get the meal anyways icon-fire.gif
I did end up grabbing the whole round of ponies last year. But I want to see if these are similar to the last set or if it's random gimmick toys. Same for the Transformers. I like ones like they did for Animated but the stuff BK did for the movies tended to be nothing of interest.

This should be interesting. Wasn't there supposed to be a Happy Meal My Little Pony/Pok?mon promo in Europe soonish? I assume whatever toys they end up using will be the same in both regions.

Ugh, I wish they'd scheduled these for the summer promos rather than the winter ones. We always go get Happy Meals with the free coupons our library's summer reading program gives out and donate the toys as prizes in our annual family get-together's Bingo game. We pretty much have no reason to go near McDonald'ses any other time of year.

On the lighter side, this gives me an opportunity to crank out a certain comic I'd been wanting to do.

I didn't get any of the MLP's last time, much to my chagrin. Once I finally got to a McDonald's, they were over... finished.

Just hope these are good ones.

And hoping that Cliffjumper will be part of the Transformers side, if they do Prime.

I just hope the Bronies won't throw a hissy if Cheerilee included instead of Trixie/Luna/Derpy/Heartstrings/DJ Pon3/etc.

Also hope Cheerilee is included again. icon-hotrod.gif

It would be ironic if these were reissues but Cheerilee was excluded, and ended up commanding serious money on ebay.

I personally hope Cheerilee is NOT in the next line up of toys. Why you may ask?

Because we already GOT Cheerilee. Give the spot to some other Background pony. I don't care who, just so there is somepony new.

I mean we can already guess the mane six will be there again. I'd like to see some variety in the toys.

In Hungary, the MLP-FiM Happy Meal toys have been out for a month now. Only the main six have been found so far, and totally randomly. Christopher... erm, Cheeri Lee and Celestia are not on the promo materials even, so they are most likely excluded.

And yeah, they are the same toys as the ones sold in the USA, but they are lacking the cutie mark brooms, erm, combs.

Lily Blossom. For some reason they decided some toy-only periwinkle pony was more important than Celestia, Luna OR any of the established background characters.
