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

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

@  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.

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.

Expected! And probably really damn gorgeous. 

 

Now I need to decide if TFSS Scourge is my buddy-commander for Baldigus or if I need this. I guess it'll depend on Diac - If he's named/decoed as Junko or Kelly... no resistance!

Tempting, but between price/availability and the need to prioritize which version of a mold to get, this is likely not an option for me. I'll be content with TFSS Scourge.

You know what this means, guys? We might be getting even more of the post-Car Robots Gelshark/Black Convoy/Baldigus storyline that began in Gelshark's Legends comic, continued in Black Convoy's previous Legends comic, and carried over into Baldigus's two Unite Warriors online comics. :love

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.

I wonder, since the toy is a Headmaster and since Black Convoy once tried to control a Headmaster, if this toy might fictionally represent Black Convoy creating his own Head On System to put himself on more even footing with Brave Maximus.

That's not how JG1 headmasters work.

Also, why would Kelly ever work for Scourge?

Maybe not ACTUALLY her, but something that represents the part of her duplicated inside of him. She was driving the big rig that his pod scanned, so he's as much her as he is Megatron and Optimus.

 

It's how he was able to exert whatever limited control he could over Brave Maximus when none of the other Transformers could.

That is a logical prediction.

Say, Sabr, you have recently watched Car Robots, yes? To you does it look like "Brave" and "Brave Maximus" are just Plasma with a changed name, à la the JG1 Headmasters reverse-engineered from them? Or rather are they actually 3 distinct bonded individuals, as the Hasbro-based wiki writeup goes? Or is it too ambiguous to discern given that Brave Maximus only appeared in a few episodes?

On that note, I just realized that Black Convoy and his crew could plausibly go for Brave Maximus in their next story, since Legends and Unite Warriors randomly gave him time-travel capability.

Plasma spoke of himself, Brave, and Cybertron City as three separate things, but of those three, only Plasma seems to be alive when all three are separated. Plasma and Brave together constitute the Head On System, which then unites with Cybertron City to become Brave Maximus. It's more akin to the Japanese take on Headmasters than not, but with each component given its own unique designation, while only Plasma retains some semblance of sentience when each component is not combined together.

 

This was pretty much the same for the English dub, with Plasma being "Cerebros", Brave being "the Emissary", and Brave Maximus being "Fortress Maximus", with the exceptions of the Head On System having no counterpart dub name (and not existing as a concept in the dub) and Cybertron City still being called "Fortress Maximus" regardless of mode.
