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

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

@  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.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

well, they had to go somewhere.

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  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.

I mentioned Hot Rod in particular because the "french accent" thing indicates he at least for sure has dialogue, which not every TF might.

Can't listen to anything at work, anyone reckon they can, uh, earball the voice from the trailer as being Gemma Chan? That'd be an easy test.

It sounds sufficiently like Gemma Chan to me.

No credit for Winston Churchill though? Michael Bay said he would be a "big hero" in it...

Maybe they'd let him emote, too. I love the guy but his voice in the 07 game sounds like they just went with his first read.

I'm intrigued by the suggestion that Quintessa isn't a voice role. Guess we're looking at a pretty humanoid alien.

 

I hope not. If we get a Quintesson in the movie, we might actually get a toy of them. So it would be really good if they at least somewhat resemble the five-faced slime of the nebula.

The three things that are bugging me about this film are:

1: Humanity is butchering all Transformers again because 'hey they all deserve it' apparently.

2: if the Dinobots get slaughtered by angry humans then (to me) it feels like a farce even introducing them in AOE.

3: The 'only one world will survive' setup. I mean, possibly evil controlled Optimus attempts to save Cybertron at the cost of Earth. Earth will win obviously.

I know some of that sounds really harsh. I'm not trying to be. It will be interesting to see where they are going with the mythology. However, i guess i've just had enough of humanity hates all TFs, up to and including all the ones who've died trying to save them.

This will be our first sign as to if that writer's room amounts to anything. I share a lot of your concerns, especially since every movie they cut the trailers a certain way and insist the film will have all this lore and character development and instead we just get the same movie reheated yet again.

 

The catch 22 is they have 4 movies of saying that what Bay does is hugely successful. As a concept the writer's room offers hope but it's not like this is a case like the DC movies where they had to change tactics because the movies were bombing. TF movies make crazy money and the majority of people paying it don't think too hard about the films until the next one pops up three years later.

 

I don't expect any real significant quality swing until such time as the films start bombing and they have to actually really put work in. And with AOE showing Bay is totally happy to obnoxiously whore these films out to an emerging global super economy, I doubt that will be on the table anytime soon.

Given that the anti-Transformers unit in this film includes goodies like Lennox, I have to assume they're a "stop Transformer attacks" team rather than a "hunt down and execute Transformers" team. Like, Grimlock might've gone and wrecked a bunch of stuff like a big numpty and that's why they've gone to take him down, that kind of thing.

Honestly, the simple fact that this film is actively continuing plot threads established in the previous one gives me a lot of hope for the storytelling.
