I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

@  Bass X0 : (22 July 2017 - 11:28 AM)

well, they had to go somewhere.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 02:54 AM)

TR Quake's shoulder symbols are very awkward looking

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2017 - 07:25 PM)

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

So overdone that they're making WW2 movies and calling them WW1.


Yep.

They're probably also nervous about having it be a bit too Captain America.

WW was originally in WW2, but WW1 is in WW1. WW2 takes place after both WW1 and WW2, and of course also happens after WW1.

 

I hope that's all clear.

My biggest issue with the movie, and it basically puts the whole movie on shaky ground for me, is that the themes of the "Wonder Woman" movie, that there are worthy fights and that war is something that can be "won", is a theme found throughout World War 2 movies. However, those themes are not so much to be found in the generally accepted themes of World War 1 films, which are generally about how hellish war can be, and that there's no real winner in war. There's no "good fight" or easy enemies in World War 1. They basically took a World War 2 film, added gas and trenches and called it World War 1.


Yep.

I don't know if I entirely agree. Diana went into the conflict with the belief that there were no bad humans and that all warfare was created by Ares. Even though she turned out to be partly wrong, she was still positioned as being in a place of moral accuracy. I don't think you could have done the same thing with World War II, where there are obvious human bad guys and you'd get some major side-eye for having your movie hero proclaim that the Nazis weren't actually to blame for their actions. It would have been really tough to do that scene at the end where both sides are hugging it out.

 

Really, I don't think I can back the argument that the movie's theme is that war can be won. It was pretty clearly that war shouldn't be started in the first place, and should be ended as quickly and peacefully as possible with a minimum of harm to all sides.

 

But really, I just wanted to joke about how confusing it can be having World Wars and Wonder Woman abbreviated in the same conversation.

Frankly I find it an odd critique that they "didn't do the war movie like the right war movie". I never knew specific wars were only supposed to be depicted certain ways.

I agree, but do see the point that certain wars took on distinctive characteristics, lending themselves to specific interpretations. But I'm all for looking at those events with new perspectives.

Yeah. I was about to post the exact same thing.
