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.

I'm not sure if anyone here knew James Conan Gouig, but he passed away. Suicide, sadly.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2017 - 11:52 AM)

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)

@  Kalidor : (17 October 2017 - 05:42 PM)

Hello?

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:39 PM)

Yeah, it's the Allspark.

@  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 of course they have a GoFundMe now. Those people are scum.

NEW SHIT HAS COME TO LIGHT. Apparently they've been stiffing people who have commissioned them for years, and a lot of their backers from previous Kickstarters haven't gotten their books yet.

Oh boy. This'll probably get worse before it gets better.

 

Practically, yeah, they're pretty scummy.

Ray Dillon seems to have been a very vocal opponent of every Wonder Woman project except their own, so I'm not at all surprised that DC decided the book could go.

They were only asking for $2,000. If it was some inane amount like $50,000 or something I might agree.

 

Losing your job around the Holidays is an awful thing and if you can find enough people to give you enough money to last you through the Holidays then more power to you.

 

The problem is that these 2 have been finding enough people to give them enough money to last them through the holidays for the last decade's worth of holidays! And oh yeah, not doing what they're supposed to be doing to EARN that money in the first place.These 2, particularly Dillon, are NOTORIOUS amongst the original art community, as scammers on the long-term scale. We're talking a DECADE plus of scams. Sure, it's only $40 here, $400 there, but add it all up, and they've been coasting on free money for years and years now. It has to stop. Instead, it's being fueled. AGAIN.

 

EDIT: Internet Jesus' link covered it all quite well. It's an open secret, and has been for many years, so that's why their cries for sympathy were met by many deaf ears. Ears that wanted to be paid or given art they're owed. Only thing IJ got wrong is calling it 'new shit'. Ain't nothing new about it. Nothing new at all.

Yeah, gosh, these dudes have been ripping people off for years. Maybe they don't mean to be horrible scam artists, but they seem to be slack about Not Being That. So. Many unhappy supporters who have been waiting years and years for books they paid for, and which are already available on multiple platforms elsewhere, so why have these people not had their junk fulfilled?

With the information we have now, it's turned into The Stupid Thing DC Did Was Hiring Them In The First Place.

They're declaring a reset after DC's announcement that they'll be making a "diversity" push similar to what Marvel tried and failed at.

That's a bad reset.

-ZacWilliam, comics need to grow a more diverse audience to survive. Marvel learning the wrong lesson recently doesn't change that.

I think the point is that they seem to be doing the same thing Marvel did, i.e. a bad-faith "diversity as sales gimmick" with the same set of white male creators.

That I agree with. Any push for inclusion should 100% include creative teams as diverse as said characters.

-ZacWilliam, it being a sales gimmick is not in itself a bad thing. Everything comics does is a sales gimmick, it's a business, and that's fine. But yeah, be authentic in your message/actions/authorial voices.

Thing is, that would require them to finally can Eddie Berganza so that there can be female creators at all levels of the company.

Well, they've done a reset.

DC's coming out with a new story arc that's basically their version of the first Marvel Civil War.

The premise? Nightwing is hired by the government to lead a task force meant to round up all supers, good and bad.
