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.

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

If that thing works, I can use it for potential future cases like this as well.

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...

@  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.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

So, a while back I ordered a Spray and Rager from iGear and when the package arrived, there were two Sprays and no Rager. So, being the penny pincher I am and not particularly wanting a second Spray, I contacted iGear and told them what happened. They asked for a picture as proof (which I provided) and I was told that they were arranging the resend and that I should hold onto the second Spray pending instructions on what to do with it.

Well... the Rager has arrived and he's quite a nice little figure, but... no instructions on what to do with the extra Spray are forthcoming. Nothing in the package, nothing in the box the figure came in and no E-Mails that I can find.

I'm tempted to contact them, but I'm also tempted to just let it be, if for no other reason than to save the bother of shipping it. Still... my conscience nags me.

Has anyone else had to deal with anything like this, particularly with iGear?

Well look at it this way, assume they meant to send instructions & didn't. If you don't contact them, it could cause issues with you getting anything directly from them.

If you can live with that, then it's your choice not to bother. Up to you.

I'd just go ahead and ask them what they want done with that second Spray.

On one hand, it is, indeed, the right thing to do.

On the other hand, depending upon what factors are at play, they might just let you keep him.



A few years ago I had to mail a defective disk back to Bandai so that I could get a replacement. Due to a mistake on their part, however, Bandai accidentally sent me two replacement bundles (disk + grab bag of freebies). When I e-mailed them about it, they said to just go ahead and keep everything.

Aw. I would've taken that Spray off your hands.

With BBTS, when I've had problems with some of my orders, they invariably send me a replacement part in a full size box, and never ask for the problem part back...which I sometimes feel bad about. It'd usually be easier for them to send these parts in a padded envelope, I think, or add it to my Pile-of-Loot. And if they'd just include a return label or envelope or something, I'd like to send them these problem parts back (Like, if I get something with two left fists, I figure the spare fist does them more good than me).

But they don't, and I assume it's for a decent reason.

I've been in the same situation, and figure it would be a logistics nightmare for them to try to keep up with random figure parts all over the place, not to mention the money and time wasted getting them shipped back. Hopefully BBTS can just send back a big pile of the salvaged third party stuff to the makers as damaged/bad quality stuff.

In any case, if Explorer ever breaks his right arm, I have a replacement at hand.

Update:

It's been several weeks (nearly a month, since I sat on it for a week or so) since I contacted them and so far there's been no reply about what to do with this figure. It's rather frustrating. I would rather any reply at all rather than silence.

I feel like I should maybe give it one more try, just in case, but it's been about a month and a half, nearly two since I received the original figures... I don't know what the statute of limitations is on this kind of thing, but I'm tempted to say that, if they really wanted it back, they'd have contacted me by now.

Curse my strong ethical drive... this would be so much easier if I just didn't care XD

Well at this point, I'd say you've no worries, except mayb how to get the extra Spay to Corvus. And seeing if he'll pony up for s/h.

Still, if you want to send another email, put in the message if, I do not receive a response by x, then I will consider the matter settled, or something to this effect. Making it obvious you tried, while not hanging on the phone for a call that might never come.

Plus, I'm sure Corvus wants his Spray.
