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".

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...

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.

That was fun! I liked it a lot.

I agree that it wasn't as fun all the way through as the Lego Movie was, and while I don't necessarily object to using the Phantom Zone to bring in other franchises I do wish they'd used ones with a bit more Lego pedigree (Makuta! Ogel! One of the Castle bad guys! Space Pimp!) Admittedly that might have dragged the "power level" down, though.

holy shit there's a lego guy called brick daddy

This movie is junk food on steroids! Balls to the walls insanity and madness. It's so EXTREME it's makes the 90's look subtle! If you ever needed a high without illegal substances, this is the movie for you.

 

I LOVED IT!! :love  :D  :wtf

 

Not perfect, though, and not as strong as the first movie, but MAN is this movie pure unadulterated FUN!

 

It's the best Fantastic Four movie we've ever had since The Incredibles. :p

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

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.

Btw, Barbara is still named Batgirl in merchandise? I like how she wasn't suppose to be named Batgirl in the movie (she just needed the gear) and she was sticking to her principles.

I did like that at no point did Babs seem romantically interested in Bruce and/or Batman.  Her reaction to his overtures was always, "Oooookay, moving on to important things...."  Batman said "platonic work friend" in a pretty forced way, so he's clearly still interested, but the clue-by-fours have started to sink in by the end of the movie.
 
---Dave

It might be a stretch, but I saw this as reflecting Batman's character development. Barbara as a love interest is analogous to Robin as expendable--it's how Batman sees them fitting into a universe that has him at the center. By the end he knows better in both cases.

Batman's heart grew three sizes bigger, but he didn't have a lobotomy.  He still wants her.  She's freaking Lego Rosario Dawson.  How could he not?

Saw it. 

 

It was okay. Not even close to as good as The Lego Movie, though. No desire to own this or anything. Some of the references were fun. I laughed out loud at the line about the time Joker had a parade with Prince music.

I felt the same way. I don't think it was nearly as enjoyable.

Does anyone else think that this movie might take place before The Lego Movie? Since Batman at first preferred to work alone and had to learn to be a team player and "do relationships" in this movie, when he was already willing to work with others and even have a girlfriend in The Lego Movie.
