Once again, there is pain, I bring flame, I bring cold. I'm the blood red sandman, coming home.

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:26 PM)

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  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.

well, they had to go somewhere.

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.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

Preorders close on the 25th.

BBTS has put some of them for pre-order. Maybe just the December releases and not the February ones like Arcee.

So we've had a Ghost Starscream UW combiner limb, and an upcoming Ghost Starscream Legends Headmaster.....could TakaraTomy possibly follow that up by producing the newly-revealed voyager mold in Ghost style too?

Hopefully not. Give him some more cartoon based colors.

I certainly hope that however Takara does Optimus Primal, the pack-in story will be set post-Beast Wars Returns and post-Beast Wars Reborn. I loved that Legends resurrected Rhinox; It's about time we got to see the next stage of Convoy's life.

Rhinox has been resurrected since Universe for me. 

 

Now that I have the grail that is TM3 Megatron, I've been needing an upgrade for Primal from his BW10 body to be of equal stature.

 

Of course, now Megs is going to need a leader class toy...

 

It never ends.

Today's Leaders are as big as yesterday's Ultras, so TM3 Megatron should size up well to the new PotP Leader Optimus Primal.

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.

It occurs to me. Whenever new Beast Wars toys eventually come back into the spotlight, and if Sakamoto Hayato is still doing Takara's tie-in stories, then it should be interesting to see Depth Charge and Rampage back from the dead and clashing once more.

 

I laughed so hard when AVP had the Waspscream continuity's versions of Depth Charge and Rampage working together on the same team. That was brilliant.

 

On that note, anyone else ever noticed that Depth Charge is in the Legends manga logo but to date has yet to appear?

Ooh, just looked up Sawback... yeah, I guess that would do nicely for Steeljaw. How'd I miss him before?

Hope I can still find one, I don't think I've seen him around.

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

My local Walmart just restocked that wave, I might be able to pick you up one.

My local Walmart just restocked that wave, I might be able to pick you up one.

 

 

  Mine did too and they're on clearance for $4.00.

 

 

Well, if it's no trouble... though I'm going out this weekend and I'll be keeping an eye out then.

 

Hopefully shipping won't be too much.

 

--LBD "Nytetrayn"

 

 

Next time I go, if you've not found one and no one else has bought an extra before me, I'll pick you up one. 

 

 

Well, it was later than I planned, but got to go out last night... and I found Sawback!

 

And Twin Twist.

 

I hated to choose, but I had to take Twin Twist (though mine seems to have a loose waist clip and mushroom peg there... anyone know if that's normal? Or a good way to fix it? Nail polish remover?), and leave Sawback for another $11 day.

 

(Yeah, the place is overpriced.)
