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?

Shocknado, awesome.

I hope at least some of these guys get Warrior class figures, Cyclonus chief among them.

It looks like Menasor is just Motormaster and the Drag/Break duo?

Also if they're still doing mission redecos, I'd like a Lunar Force Strongarm.

We saw that Menasor is also only composed of 4 bots at the first official art leak. And Galvatronus there clearly has the same leg design for both legs. Ultrabee has Grimlock lower body. It looks like all of the combiners are made of 4 guys with a torso, two arms and a lower body.

 

I'm guessing Shocknado is a fusion of Cyclonus and Shockwave, if only because he is completely purple instead of a color mix like the other two-guy combiners.

Menasor is strange mainly because he appears to be made of Motormaster, Drag Strip, and then both a Breakdown-esque and Wildrider-esque guy, but we got one of the 'Con Crash Combiners as "Wildbreak", who seems like he should be covering the latter two, with Dead End as the fourth. But this picture kind of implies - huh, I wonder if it's Motormaster, Drag Strip, Wildbreak-the-Breakdown proxy and Offroad. Those legs are pretty truck-y.

 

Galvatronus is intriguing and I'm glad to see it used (presumably) in fiction, with Cyclonus' behind-the-scenes control of Cybertron.

 

Shocknado seems like he should be a fusion of Shockwave and someone, but I don't see any Shockwave in either half, or the head design. Maybe we're getting an RID Shockblast or something.

 

Ultra Bee, Menasor and Galvatronus being classified as Crash Combiners certainly lends credence to the idea that even the big main combiners are going to be released as smallish toys - which is disappointing but not surprising, if correct.

 

EDIT: Ugh, stupid Creedence.

Yeah, I didn't even look at that, but nothing matches between model and headshot on Shocknado. So my guess is the inset picture is one of the components' art incorrectly stuck in there.

 

EDIT: Also I wasn't smart enough earlier to compare Menasor to Dragbreak, so clearly Wildbreak is the fill-in for the deceased Breakdown, and I'm definitely betting the legs are Offroad. It would even make sense for him to be a big truck to match up with Grimlock being a big tyrannosaur in Ultra Bee.

 

Also also: huh. Galvatronus and Menasor are rendered like their legs are individual vehicles, with wheels on both the insides and outsides of the legs, but Ultra Bee clearly only has half a Grimlock on each side, as evidenced by his adorable flailing dinosaur arms.

So, Galvatronus could be Cyclonus's endgame, using his mind control powers to not only manipulate the Council, but to also make himself a combiner. My theory, at least.
 
Though, look closely at Galvatronus's arms. Don't they look kinda like blue-colored Vehicons?

It looks to me like Motormaster will be forming the pants, rather than the torso, of Menasor, leaving the torso to be someone else.

I know about the art work with 4 Stunticons, but it still looks like to me Menasor and Galvatronus are standard 5-bot combiners: torso + 2 arms + 2 legs. It's just UltraBee that has Grimlock forming both legs.

But Menasor's two legs are identical. Surely a five limb combiner wouldn't have this?
