@  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.

@  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.

Menasor looks badass, and he's a combiner I never liked the look of much before his Generations toy. Hope they keep giving him giant viking horns! It's a great cue. Team Bee is looking good too, I thought they would look garish together but the fact all four members are connected to each other by their black parts  makes the combiner color-design alot more agreeable.

I was kinda expecting a RID15 combiner to be Optimus Maximus with Bee, Strongarm, Sideswipe, and Drift as limbs.

 

Instead we get... a four-part combiner with a green Grimlock as a component?

 

Transformers: Robots in Disguise is the same


On rare occasions, I have something to say.

Probably won't be a complex enough toy to mistransform into Force Thing, though.

So, I guess Cyclonus's bio mentioning mind control wasn't a hint that the Decepticon combiner is Galvatronus.

 

I look forward to Menasor vs Bumblegrimarmswipe.

Who knows? The season 3 finale could be Cyclonus taking over the presumed Stunticons and forming them around himself. Galvatronus can still happen in some context even if it's not the "main" Decepticon combiner of the season.

RID's better when they do less gimmicky toys. I'll just stick with Warriors and Legions. Warrior Bisk and Quillfire are vastly superior to pretty much every Deluxe CW figure by virtue of A) having unique robot modes, and B) not having the samn damn basic transformation scheme.

 

Also, the RID team's managed to do better than Combiner Wars fiction-wise!

I assume that the press release saying five 'Cons was just in error. The art clearly just has four guys, and from a toyline point of view the two main "Team Combiners" are gonna have to have the same number of guys.

So yeah, presumably it'll be Motormaster, Dead End, Dragstrip and Wildbreak.

I kinda like how it looks like a Megazord with the colors and non-Scramble city combination pattern.

 

Shame that there's not likely going to be any toy of it with individual bot modes that are any good if the crash things are any indication.

 

Also, blech. Either way this goes, it looks like more toys of regular robots turning into cars.
