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

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.

@  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, didja hear? Pac-Man is getting a new animated series!

It's being co-produced by Avi Arad and Rick Ungar (X-Men: Evolution, Biker Mice from Mars), will be in 3D, and is coming to Disney XD in Fall 2013.

More info and a blurry video can be seen here.

Plus, the original Pac-Man cartoon's first season just came out on DVD, though $35.99 seems a bit much for only one of the two seasons.

As far as the new one goes, I'm hoping this leads to a new round of Pac-Merchandise... seems like a natural direction, given that Bandai Namco are the owners of the IP.

Above is the original post; the latest info, with a new clip, screens, and galleries of the toys can be seen here.

Isn't the price of the original Pac-Man season one cartoon that high because it's only available through Warner Archives?

Pac-Man's voice is a tad... grating. I grew up with the Hanna Barbara series, so I'm so used to seeing him as a middle class family man that suddeny "squeaky voiced kid" has taken me by surprise.

The show looks neat, though, and I like how they're incorporating all the abstract concepts of the arcade game into a semi-coherent universe.

And was that Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde at the end?

Anyway, I'll give it a shot.

I mean, no matter what way you cut it, it's still a show based on a game from the infancy of the industry.

It's some manner of incredible challenge to make it any good while still incorporating everything that it is.

Yes, but it also means no Ms. Pac-Man and no Pac-Baby.

The show from the 80s wasn't great, but it was a pretty original take on what amounts to a game based on a guy eating pills at a rave.

Maybe that will come later on in the show... and she can actually be MS. Pac-Man, instead of his wife, Pepper.

As for the voice, it's grown on me. But yeah, it caught me off-guard as well. Still, I think it will help appeal to kids, which is what the franchise really needs right now, in my opinion.

And yes, those are the ghosts in there, though I think I heard somewhere (mind, this was over a year ago) that they're his friends? Could make for an interesting tale...

If you want a better look at the designs, here they are in one of the games.

I like this idea. I think I'll go with this.

...incidentally, I think a teaser trailer is probably not the best thing to gauge voice acting by, but it seemed alright to me for what it was.

I remember seeing this video quite a while ago. I predicted then that the purple pac-girl with the buckled boots was the daughter of the evil ghost overlord with his buckled gloves. She has a kind of goth quality about her, and he's a ghost. Yeah, I think there'll be some plot twist about that. And could they not make a non-3D trailer available? The fact that this blurry thing is still all we have to go on is just sad.

Well, it is a reboot of sorts. I don't know if they have a specific thing set up for the blinking or not, though we saw some of that in the first clip, if I remember right.

I think the glowing might be saved more for the possessions and zappings; Pac is still eating berry-pellets to go after them, though.

Actually, this "style" is intentional, it's gotten popular in a lot of CGI animation shows recently, specifically the cheaper, cartoony ones. It's an attempt to imitate older cartoons but it can be a bit weird and erratic if you're not used to it.

Hooo boy. I guess I'll reserve judgment until I can see a full episode, but it's just hard to watch even a 5 minute clip. Maybe once I see the 4 original ghosts in action, I'll enjoy it more.
