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.

@  Vexwing : (19 October 2017 - 04:46 PM)

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)

@  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.

Takara released them and we'll be getting a version of the mold through the TFSS.

 

I don't think they've EVER done a fired mold we haven't gotten in some way eventually.

Yup.  And the leftover alternate heads that were never touched, like Hardhead and Lugnut's extra.  I wouldn't bet on Crosscut ever showing up again, at least at retail.  Probably not Chromia either.
 


I'd take that bet. We'll get 90 to 100% of this stuff eventually I think.

When... It may be a wait... But I think Hasbro is well aware of the fan demand and all the work is done... I'm confident we'll see all or nearly all.

-ZacWilliam, now will some be in Movie packaging...

I have no doubts the 100% new molds like Tankor and Rattrap will eventually show up.  BUT I think the retools will probably end up in the Club's hands.

The fact that, assuming both are on-model, Arcee and Chromia transform fairly differently?

The fact that she was introed in the comics strongly tied to these toys in a body that could not really be a mold share with Arcee who she shared a wave with to begin with, making mold sharing fairly unlikely even before that, I think.

-ZacWilliam, no we havn't seen either but the odds seem much greater for unique molds...

This is sure to be brought up at Botcon and I wonder if they'll even be aware of this stuff happening as they are rarely aware of true distribution issues.

Yeah, right, everyone will be too busy drooling over the next batch of "Hey look at these! Guess what? We're gonna cancel them anyway!"

They have confirmed that Arcee and Chromia are still going to be released, but have been pushed to a future and currently unknown assortment.

 
Simmer down.  They aren't cancelled yet.  Neither is Windblade, whom we never got a firm release date on anyway.

I'm not worried about the others coming out but Crosscut is a concern.

 

Especially since Takara has never really been big on the redecos. Even of Japanese specific characters like Black Shadow...or Crosscut.
