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

@  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.

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.

And Sequoia too.

 

Brushfire looks like he has elbow joints! :o

 

A pity this comes out just after the show seems to have ended too.

He turns into an ATV.

 

Here's the original Seibertron news post that showed the first look at Brushfire before the one Verity linked to was written:

Sequoia doesn't come with Brushfire. That's Sequoia's packaging featuring Brushfire wielding Sequoia in tool mode.

He turns into an ATV.

By standing on end and rotating that one section in his torso, so I don't think that was a mystery. But it's definitely unique in TF. All the more so for the treads. (Real ATVs can use real treads that really are separate front and back units, but they replace all four wheels.)

 

I know there's an unmemorable and unmentionable Minicon or two with an ATV mode somewhere in the depths of the wiki, but among things that count, this is an entirely unique alt mode.

Brushfire's vehicle mode is on Copter Crane Blades's packaging.  And Sequoia is available on Amazon, but for rather more than $5.  Probably a reseller who's planning to fulfil the order once his shipment comics in, not someone who has it in stock.

Yeah, it's an off-road/mountain ATV with a half-track package instead 4 wheels (but, you know, it still has 2 wheels so not TR Brawn).

 

I don't think we've had anything like that before.

TR Brawn's little Action Master partner is an ATV? I thought it was more of a jeep. I hadn't made the connection in that case to ATV tread packages, though I can see that now.

I think it's unlikely that anyone will ever be able to say that Sequoia is a girl, because I doubt Sequoia is ever going to get any fictional appearances.

The Rescue Bots Mini-Cons certainly don't have any kind of personality information on the packaging. In fact, none of the Rescue Bots have at all since the change to the Heroes packaging style... except for Hoist and Medix, who kept theirs from the previous style.

Maybe there are personal pronouns in the marketing text? I don't know where you would find it, though, since Valor and Swift aren't even on Hasbro's site anymore.

I'm fairly confident that the author of the news post was just making an assumption based on the "-ia" in the Mini-Con's name.
