@  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.

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

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.

Isn't it easier to assume that Nebulans have always existed in JG1, just offscreen? After all, Hi-Q doesn't appear in any version of "The Rebirth".

That's what I always assumed, but with Sakamoto's continuity dabbling, you never know what he'll do next.

How can Grimlock be in the Legends Universe? Unite Warriors Offshot shows him celebrating Father's Day with the Techbots in 2021. In his cartoon body.

 

I guess the Offshot chapters really ain't in chronological order.

Well I mean, they established the Legends Universe stories happening in chronological order doesn't necessarily affect people who come in from the outside, who come from different time periods.

The present of the Legends universe isn't the same present for those outside.

Sure, but the reason Grimlock is a Headmaster is because of an event set in 2021, the same timeframe as most of the Unite Warriors fiction.

Okay, that's plausible, but what's Grimlock doing with Fortress's crew? Where's all the other Dinobots? Ain't none of the rest except Swoop have TR series toys.

 

Well, I suppose I look forward to seeing how Gong is the only one of Fortress's party to get back a regular-sized non-Headmaster body.

Grimlock heard there was a fight he wasn't a part of.

Left in the middle of his own Father's Day party too, the jerk.

Brawn burst in was all "Hey Grimlock, Zarak said you were a kisser and not a king" and well Grimlock just couldn't let that slide.

How Zarak knew to make that kind of accusation is a story for another day.

Why would they be after every other Headmaster in these stories is from the Japanese G1 cartoon timeline.

Looks like, judging from a quick Twitter search.

Well, we've already established why it's difficult to reconcile this Grimlock with the cartoon one, and Cartoon Brawn's still dead as far as we know.
