That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  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.

I was hoping for something like this just yesterday. Except in my hopes, Unicron was repainted to looks more like his G1 self. Maybe they STILL have a jiveload left over from Armada?

Here's a mirror of the image:


I think it would've been nice if the colors were tweaked a bit to match the movie version just a little better, but heck, it was already almost spot-on. And it really has been five years since it was first released, so it does seem like a reasonably smart item to release to kids and collectors sucked in by the movie, Animated, Classics, whatever.

I still have my Unicron from Armada... But I changed out the red LED for a green one. Soldering guns are your friends! (Just don't grab them at the business end. icon-hotrod.gif ) Also, I painted some silver around his helmet to look more traditional.

My guess is Hasbro still had a boat load of these in storage, thus no new paint schemes.

Now this is nice. I don't own the original, it's well past time I'd ever find it on clearance in stores, and ebay prices are ridiculous. I'm actually happy, as I'll get a shot at owning it (a friend had it back in the day, so I know it's a good mold)

I sincerely hope this is the final version. That way, people who weren't alive or interested back in 2003 can have a Unicron of their own, and I don't have to feel like there's a superior version to the Armada one.

I could see myself getting it if they gave it a repaint making it more similar to the G1 version. Otherwise no thanks already have the Armada and energon versions.

Interesting that there is a Universe Supreme class though. Possibility for future new molds, or just made up for a few rereleases of important characters?

Now I just need to hope it actually comes out here, unlike Classics Devastator

Dang. If they were rereleasing it, why couldn't they have given it a more accurate colour scheme. Even the transparent-to-grey plastic switch mentioned above would have been welcomed.


Oh well, I guess i'll be waiting for the properly G1 coloured Henkei version icon-fire.gif I wonder what they'll chrome on him, maybe his jaws? Awesome.

I guess they had to put some symbol on the packaging and since Unicron is evil they went with a 'con insignia.

That's what I was gonna ask. So, Unicron has chosen to side with the 'Cons? Sadly, since he's not changed... from what I can tell and has been stated... from his Armada colors, this one is a pass.

Now, if they release Primus in a new scheme, I'm all over it. My Primus is being over powered by Energon and Armada Unicron.
