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.

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 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.

@  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...

Eh, sometimes I almost wish they had stuck with the name Hot Shot for the movies, instead of opting for Bumblebee.

Imagine stores across the world, flooded with Hot Shots! IMAGINE!!!

This new Shot figure is pretty great, though. Here's hoping for more non show characters or more future show characters.

This new Vehicon looks quite good to me. I'm thinking I need about four. Four is a good troop builder size for my collection.

Hot Shot looks decent enough to get also.

Check it: Arcee!

http://www.facebook....8...e=1

She's still got a wheel hangin' off her back, and I think the "shoulder wings" are better on this version. Blue on the arms is nice. And the massive gun. That too.

Have to wonder if the Generations formula is being used here, and we've got extra heads on more molds than just this one.

I very much like the blue forearms and better "wings".

The only thing I'm not too sure on is the seemingly lack of details on the torso. The boobs and abs look like they should be on a simpler figure compared to the details on his limbs, back kibble and head.

*Edit* After a closer look, it seems that there may be some details on the stomach area that are being mostly obscured by the lighting and the globby silver paint. So...I guess that's better icon-hotrod.gif

My main problem with the FE was the wings hanging on the outside of her arms rather than behind. This fixes it, so I'm happy.

Yeah, I might like this Arcee just slightly more. I wonder if she's a little smaller due to that huge gun, or if some of the pieces are recycled and she's about the same. I hope all those silver parts are actually going to be pink. I've always really liked that they kept the pink in her color scheme.

As long as she's the same height (or preferably shorter) than RID Cliffjumper, she's work out fine. The FE one towers over him.

I also wonder if she'll come with a second blade. They look like they can peg into her arms.

She shares no pieces, same as Cliffjumper, Optimus, and Bumblebee.

Wow, that's the first RID figure that actually looks better than the FE.

Well, check that. The RID figure looks more show accurate. I'm not convinced it will be a better toy than the FE one, but the show accurateness (and undoubtably smaller size) makes it a purchase. Besides, I'll buy any femmebot toy regardless. icon-waspy.gif

Though I find it hilarious that they went to the trouble to give her a show accurate gun, to the point where it will fit over her forearms, and then made it 400x too big.

I love the FE Arcee, but this one looks good, has the wings raised more (and on her back, but that wasn't my big complaint) and will be smaller.

Also I want it as Flamewar, preferably with a more G1-style Arcee head for the lulz.
