That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  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?

The only right way to celebrate the movie's 10th anniversary is by giving us MP versions of Blackout, Bonecrusher, and '74 Bee.

Yup, looking like the canceled version that never came out the first time (the one in Japan that HLJ still uses as part of their banners at some places).

That Megatron has been begging for a proper deco since 2009. It was the first toy I ever bought *because* I was a collector.

I'm not as deep in movie toys as I used to be, but still...very tempting. The hybrid Evasion deco and the minifigs with the Dinobots are delicious.

So does the Voyager Starscream feature some of the original intended features that were removed for the figure when it went into production?

A lot of these are good, if obvious, redecos, and it's a decent "greatest hits" lineup of the films. Though I wonder if there's an audience for this stuff anymore. I feel like I've mostly moved on, though some of these are tempting.

 

So we haaaave....

 

-Evasion Mode Optimus in a new deco, in his red and blue colors, but weathered.

-DOTM Deluxe 'bee, only with some kind of Gatling Gun weapon instead of his Mechtech (anyone recognize it?)

-The long-awaited ROTF Voyager Megs movie-accurate redeco. (This is attempt #3 at a release, right? Watch this get cancelled, too).

-A DOTM Voyager Shockwave re-release? Maybe a metallic deco?

-HFTD Deluxe Ironhide, probably in some kind of premium deco.

-What looks like DOTM Deluxe Ratchet repainted into his Movie 1/2 colors, with a tiny pistol instead of his Mechtech (again, anyone recognize it?)

-A DOTM Deluxe Soundwave re-release, minus accessories? (Yay for rarity, boo for lack of weapon)

-Some use of the ROTF Starscream mold, which I'm guessing will be in Movie 1 colors

-A voyager Grimlock with a mini Optimus rider?

-A Voyager Strafe, also with a mini Bumblebee rider

-ROTF Buster Prime, only with his DOTM Abs retool, a single sword from the Asia Release, and the faceplate on.

The listing at BBTS says Soundwave is the Human Alliance one. I'm not familiar enough with the toy to tell.

 

Maybe I'm the only person, but I really like the the inaccurate deco on ROTF Voyager Megs. It's way more interesting than his actual movie colors. That one was the only movie megs in my collection for a long time.

I think they're just using the original RotF prototype photos as a placeholder.

It is, sans Laserbeak and McDreamy.

It kind of dawned on me only today that its been about 9 years since the first movie came out. I'm not going to really bother with any of these reissues unless there is something eye cataching, say ROTF leader Megatron with proper arms the relfect how he appeared in the film, the only movie Megatron I got is the 07 figure at least of the larger ones, I got the old legends (legion class) figures but I never went for the others, I had hoped for some third party or something to make improvements to that ROTF Megatron leader but nothing really came and I didn't bother to get him, I'm mainly put off by the arms, one being puny and the other a massive lump, while OP, I got the ROTF leader mold three times:

1. First release, the one that saw masses of him on the shelves

2. Jet Wing (the DOTM retool with the jet pack)

3. Takara Striker Optimus.

 

So for the moment in regards to these rereleases, I'm on the bench and not really likely to buy them.

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.

^ I'd rather Takara try to find some way to retool all that Jetfire armor to make it instead attach to the more movie-accurate 2010 Voyager OP mold.

Not me. I get why someone would want that, but I don't think it would look as good. I think the 07 mold's thicker limbs add something to the combined mode that we wouldn't get with the more accurate 2010 mold.

I like the 2007 Voyager. It's got an intuitive transformation that accomplishes a a lot and BBOP inherits a lot of the Leader's fiddliness, the only major consolation being he doesn't keep introducing himself.

I *love* the green! It was a perfect 'zombie'/patina color, the shade a robot that's been dead at the bottom of the ocean should be.

 

Still wish we had gotten that version that had crabs and barnacles and things painted on...
