Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

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.

@  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...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 July 2017 - 01:27 PM)

He REALLY likes blowing stuff up.

G1 Scattershot's 3rd mode gimmick?

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

well, they had to go somewhere.

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 02:54 AM)

TR Quake's shoulder symbols are very awkward looking

If there's at least one, you can army-build.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 July 2017 - 07:25 PM)

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.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 06:03 PM)

On SDCC stuff...I'm disappointed, but not surprised, at the lack of the actual KIDS toys among all the toys for us old men

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

:burn

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

SSA response? "How would we know to un enroll you if you don't tell us?"

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:14 PM)

I would LOVE to have ONE THING done correctly and promptly by the Social Security Administration

Toiletbot!
QUOTE
Official sources within Dairycon today revealed a picture of yet another
Dairycon exclusive:



It can be none other than Toiletbot!
Holy Crap!

This is one for the record book, folks. Toiletbot was last seen about 10 years
ago... just before the first Dairycon Convention :-)

Sporting what appears to be articulation and a number of accessories, Toiletbot
marks his triumphant return as a fully-realised production figure for the
Dairycon Convention. Suffice it to say, Dairycon is staying close to its roots
with this one.

Toiletbot will be offered as a Limited Lucky Draw exclusive item to those who
attend the Dairycon Convention. Limited to a handful of pieces at the show, he
will come handsomely packed and with a full array of secret accessories!

Although it's too-late to register for Dairycon, you can watch the site for
additional reveals and updates. It will be a great treat, especially for those
lucky enough to attend!

If you haven't already heard, Confirmation Packets for Dairycon will be mailed
out the week of March 30th. As always, you can visit the Dairyland Transfans
site here:

http://www.freewebs....ylandtransfans/
Or their mirror-site here:
http://www.geocities...rylandtransfans

Excelsior!


Also discovered would be an image of his Toilet Altmode:


If any of you find him oddly familiar, it's possible you may have seen him before. He appeared at the Botcon '99 art contest, and was shown in Toyfare Magazine (Issue #27) and Lee's AFN #83!


Again, check out the Dairyland Transfans site for more information about this and other figures from this (and past) Dairycons.

I learned real fast that one of the more hilarious aspects of Dairycon is the virtual impossibility of aquiring a complete set of all the exclusives at these conventions! They pulled a rotten trick with that Stormsword a couple years back. icon-hotrod.gif

Holy Crap indeed.

I've been going to these since '05 and Fred and his pals put on a great show every year. I can't wait for this one! icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif icon-fire.gif

Really, Toiletbot holds a place of honor and esteem for us DTFers. No hate there.

But we give 'im a lotta jive. icon-hotrod.gif And Fred does love his Jumpstarters...all I-dunno-how-many-hundred of 'em. icon-fire.gif

Hey, I don't know how many times I have to say it, but if there's any Dairycon figure I'd like to get my hands on, it's Heffer. I have a thing for the Huffer/Pipes mold, and the cow-themed paintjob is nothing but pure win. I'm hoping to get at least two of the Ass-09 figures, since it's a multi-con exclusive (at this point I'm *planning* on attending Dairycon AND Gamer's Reuinion), but there's no way I'll be able to make it to Cybcon or the Dutch Botcon (and let's forget about the super-secret Autocon group's figure at the moment).

And speaking of Fred's Jumpstarters, I've got a pic of the army of them that are used for the Jumpstarter Races...

-And I'm pretty sure he's got more around, as (for some reason) I seem to recall him asking for moreof them (working or not)...
