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.

@  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.

@  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...

I have a question that I don't think I've ever seen confirmed any place.

Do the Japanese DVDs for Animated restore the cut segments, as there's no problems with length on a DVD? (Basically, did they cut the episodes before or after they dubbed them?)

I know that the DVDs included the three skipped episodes (though they didn't restore the proper series episode order). Knowing whether or not the Animated DVDs were uncut might be a clue as to whether the inevitable Prime DVDs will be unedited in Japan or not.

Disappointing compared to the awesomeness that was Animated's Japanese intro.
Not that I was expecting burning justice and mysterious cloaked figures, but I feel like there's a dissonance between the audio and the imagery.
Appropriate for a dub, I guess.

You noticed that too, huh? I thought when I first listened to that song, that it was a very odd match for Transformers Prime, and seeing the entire opening, merely re-enforced my opinion. There are some sweet visuals, and I do like the driving and transforming clip going into the show's title. The fact remains that the music just doesn't mesh. At the moment, I can't tell you if it's merely a case of audio-visual dissonance, or if the song just simply doesn't suit the show at all. I'll watch the opening, full-sized, and think it over for a couple of days.

Picked up volume 1 and there was no difference from the broadcast versions as far as i could tell.

Also a heads up to all those looking for a stream, my souces hooked me up again so its on youtube now

I thought it was a joke when i heard the intro tune online a couple of weeks ago. Animated had much better tunes for its japanese run. It feels like they took the Epic away from primes intro just to make it hip for the kids.

I just.... *sigh*
The kids voices are pretty damn close to the American version. Starscream's voice is odd but at least unique.
Everyone else has the same, boring voices you hear in every other anime out there. For crying out loud, Ratchet and Arcee have had the personality ripped out of them.
This is why the anime industry is in a delcine. It's stagnating. Nothing changes, they make everything similar to the last thing and it's freakin' boring.

I'm gonna go watch some of our episodes and be EXTREMELY grateful for our animation industry trying new things.

You have to consider though that no matter what kind of song they'd have gotten for Prime's opening, it's really damn hard to beat out a JAM Project song for awesomeness.
