@  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.

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)

On the other hand:

Yay! Another chance to get Cheerilee!

For me, it's another chance to get any pony. The one time I tried to get the first ones, I got Celestia, twice. I threw one away & lost the other one. This time I'm gonna try better, but knowing my luck when it comes to fast food toys, they'll either have holdovers from the previous month or all Lily Blossoms.

The same thing kind of happened with Cheerilee in the first batch. Lily Blossom could be getting some screen time, who knows?

It also looks like triple mark cuties are just large single marks.

Looks like they double as keychain clasps. You can see how Applejack's attaches to the top of her head.

I imagine the rest have a similar tab for the brush to hook onto as well.

Hairbrushes? But isn't the hair... molded?

Also, the site has a little thing where you can ask Ponies (or Transformers) a question, if you so desire.

Their manes are molded, but their tails are brush/comb-able.

*squints*

...yeeeeeeah, I guess they are, aren't they?

...

Okay, maybe I'm in the minority, but somehow... I'd just feel more comfortable brushing their manes than their tails. Not that I plan on any brushing (I'll leave that to my wife), but just generally speaking...

I think the logic may have been that the ponies have such distinct mane styles this time around that they're better off molding those so they actually look like the cartoon. Previous-gen McDonald's Pony toys had "hair" manes and plastic tails instead.

If you ever somehow become a Catholic saint, be aware that they will harvest your bones and build altars around them.

I think either the last weekend in February or the first in March. Friday is usually the day they start the new promotions. I got the last set, but only kept the main cast. I might have to go back and find Celestia, as she may be better to scale with the blind bags.

I kinda want to get some of these 'cause they're cheep, but I already have the PVC pack for the mane six and I duplicating would be overkill. And while Cheerilee is nice, I don't really want one of those just yet. Ah well, what can I do?

The Fluttershy happy meal toy would be better than the official PVC since its not just Rainbow Dash with pink hair.

Yeah, but judging from the old Twilight I have, they're not to scale with the PVCs. And I don't want two sets of pony. There's having ponies on my desk and then there's just overkill.
