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.

@  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)

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.

I'll only watch this if they cast either Neil Patrick Harris or Jensen Ackles as Barry.

I'm rather surprised that it took this long for someone to mention the 90's series....

Despite being rasied on Wally I'm enjoying the current Manapul/Buccelato more than I have any other Flash run in the last twenty years so I'm fine with them using Barry. I think it's really hard to make speed look convincing in live action though, so I'm not confident that the special effects will be very charismatic. The odd brief burst of speed here and there in Smallville was okay, but I wouldn't want to see a whole show built around that model. I hope they do something interesting and watchable with it.

Entertainment Weekly says that one of the kids from Glee is your new Barry Allen.

QUOTE
Grant Gustin, whom you might recognize as Glee?s Sebastian, has officially been cast as Barry Allen (aka The Flash) in The CW?s hit show Arrow. Gustin will appear in episodes 208, 209, and 220.

Barry Allen is described as ?a Central City assistant police forensic investigator who arrives in Starling to look into a series of unexplained robberies that may have a connection to a tragedy in his past. A comic book fan boy, Barry is obsessed with the Arrow unaware that working with Oliver and Felicity to solve the crime has brought him right into the dangerous world of the vigilante,? according to a press release.


I've never seen Glee so I can't comment on the kid's acting chops, but there you go.

I'm not sure you'd be able to say much, Sebastian was a pretty minor character, anyway. He was in, what, three episodes, total?

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Well, the same could be said about Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, but I feel I've seen enough of her in Glee to have a certain perspective on her abilities as an actor.

I wrote 'probably'. The cliffhanger last season showed angels falling like comets but it wasn't shown for Castiel. I haven't seen the preview trailer either so its just speculation that he's human too (unless Metatron did something else for him). I HOPE he's still angelic. Being human and nuts would be awful for him.

Arrow's Flash can fight non super powered folks. The Rogues are paraphernalia based non metas (well, depending on which Weather Wizard)

Actually, most of them think so as well. It was Cold's idea and most of them have disliked him ever since.

Hmm, I'm curious about that. Maybe I'll look it up. I have no idea who the nu52 Rogues are so could be worth a look (is Kid Trickster Axel part of the team?). Weather Wizard internalized his powers before and Mirror Master has too abstract ish abilities to be limited by a gun but Cold, Heatwave and Boomerang all rely on hand held weapons. The latter three can just be street level bad guys.

Weather Wizard internalized his powers before and Mirror Master has too abstract ish abilities to be limited by a gun but Cold, Heatwave and Boomerang all rely on hand held weapons. The latter three can just be street level bad guys.


Kid Trickster, Captain Cold, Glider (His Sister), Mirror Master, Heatwave, and Weather Wizard are the current Rogues lineup. Trickster is still mostly a gadgeteer, but has a cybernetic arm now (got it a few issues ago after a bad encounter with one of Grodd's apes), Cold can generate beams of ice, Glider is sorta of mental projection while her body is in a coma, Mirror Master is trapped in reflective surfaces which leads to his mirror realm that serves as the Rogue's hideout, Heatwave looks a bit like a Steampunk Cyborg. Weather Wizard is pretty much a male version of Storm. Boomerang was part of Suicide Squad, and was still weapon based with pretty much the same look. I don't know if new character Turbine has joined them or not, but was last seen with them. They're all still pretty much street-level criminals with the same rules and morals and occasional anti-hero leanings (They helped save people during the Gorilla warfare arc, and look to be opposing the Crime Syndicate during Forever Evil). So they've not really changed much beyond how they use their powers.

I rather like how its all handed, they've not quite gotten used to having powers rather then weapons/gadgets, as its 'recent' (not long before the start of series, I don't think they've had them for much longer then a year and half comic time) so its not like they are really overpowered or anything; as Flash alone has still been able to handle them. and since it all Cold's idea; it puts him at occasional odds with the rest of the team as not everyone if fond of the end results which I think is a nice reflection of general fan's mixed reactions.

Semi-related: Flash #19 is a pretty fun issue, in which Barry temporarily looses his powers to Dial H, and ends up using the Rogues old weapons to save people till his powers return near the end of the issue.

Also this week we got Flash 23.3 which is the Rogues one-shot.

EDIT: Fixed a mistake I made about one of the characters.
