@  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.

@  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.

Looks better than the AoE deluxe cars by a mile, although that probably has more to do with the design itself than the figure (Ugh... I'll see deluxe Drift's face in my nightmares).  Having a third of the car on his back kind of sucks, though.

Is it just me or does this look remarkably more solid & stable than previous Movieverse designs?

 

I remember the 07 Barricade mold as a spindly little thing that kept flopping over. This wouldn't look too out of place next to an average Generations toy (except for the face).

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.

That "Crankcase" is actually an entirely new mold.  Compare with DotM Crankcase.  Kibble arrangement is completely different.

Pretty sure it's removed, that'd be a helluva thing to cram inside the torso.

 

Hopefully it can at least be held as a riot shield or something.

And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

The thing I notice most about the backpack is how it would facilitate a non-siren remold. Just swap out that transparent part, and maybe the front grill, and he could be a whole new character.

 

And with the turtle-like head sculpt and massive back kibble... It could be a Movieverse version of a RiD Decepticon!! :D

By the way, it looks like the backpack might fold up.  There seems to be a visible armature underneath the rear glass, and possibly a split in the plastic just ahead of it.  Backpack should be no worse than many of the movie Bumblebee figures, and not that full-length turtle shell thing.

The back kibble doesn't really bother me.  Transformers have been doing that for a LONG time.  Would it be better if it wasn't there, sure, but it isn't a deal breaker for me.

 

The more I see of the new head sculpt, the more I'm loving it.  Very cool design.

 

Crankcase/Crowbar looks fantastic!!  I am loving those spikes on the vehicle.  Very menacing looking.
