Once again, there is pain, I bring flame, I bring cold. I'm the blood red sandman, coming home.

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:26 PM)

Yo, when Team Skull meets you, they don't even greet you!

Once more, I have returned. w00t.

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (23 July 2017 - 09:46 AM)

And dealing with me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 08:47 AM)

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

@  unluckiness : (23 July 2017 - 07:52 AM)

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 06:44 AM)

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.

@  Dekafox : (22 July 2017 - 12:42 PM)

G1 Scattershot's 3rd mode gimmick?

@  MEDdMI : (22 July 2017 - 12:04 PM)

Nothing can be more awkward than the crotch rubsigns.

@  Bass X0 : (22 July 2017 - 11:28 AM)

well, they had to go somewhere.

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

TR Quake's shoulder symbols are very awkward looking

@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)

..er myself.

@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)


@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)


@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)


@  Kalidor : (21 July 2017 - 10:58 PM)

Couldn't say it bett.....

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 July 2017 - 10:33 PM)

You just don't appreciate the speed of a solid state drive until you have to use an old laptop with an old spinning drive

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 July 2017 - 08:32 PM)

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.

Deathy's, Transformers toy ideas for 2010 & beyond.

(1) Overlord: a updated homage new mold based off the character/toy
designs from the Japanese Takara Masterforce 1988 toyline/cartoon
packaging,both voyager sized toys will be packaged together & sold in
a leader sized box+price point.
A voyager sized black long nose stealth jet similar in design to the
1988 masterforce overlord black jet.
A Voyager sized dark brown+white tank design similar in design to the
1988 materforce overlord tank design.
Keeping true to the 1988 materforce overlord neither vechicle will
have a seperate/individual robot mode.
each voyager sized vechicle will have a animal alt mode. I'd envision
the black stealth jet would be able to transform into a T-rex/
brontosauras type dinosaur. while the tank would be able to transform
into a lion.
they'll be a combined mode like the 1988 masterforce overlord has.
both the tank & jet will combine to form a huge robot. i'd envision
the combined process will be similar to the energon 2-in-1 voyager
combiners. the black jet will form the upper robot mode,while the tank
forms the lower robot.
The main reason I decided to add a animal alt mode. was because I
figured the kids would find a jet or tank with no individual robot
mode booring. just trying to make the original concept more exciting
for the kids.
they'll be 2 mini-con that are included with this figure. they'll be a
few mini-con ports on the toys. they'll be 2 mini-con ports on the
left & right upper chest of the combined overlord robot mode. for each
mionicon to attach to like breast plates. similar to what armada
tidalwaves minicon does.
I'm not certain if I want both minicons to have vechicle or animal alt
either way both minicons will combine to form a gun for the combiner
robot overlord to hold in his hand.
repaint idea for overlord: Starscream & megatron combine to form
autobot recolor idea for overlord: sky & lynx combine to form skylynx.
(2) Victoryleo & starsabre combine to form victorysabre: a updatted
homage new mold based off the 1989 Takara generation 1 toys.
Victoryleo & starsabre would be sold seperatly as voyager sized toys.
Both voyagers combine to form starsabre.
victoryleo would still transform from a lion into a robot. starsabre
would still transform from a jet to a robot.
I prefer victoryleo split up into combining armor pieces similar to
the was the year 2004 energon voyager sized "wingsabre" does.
(3)Takara Master piece Rodimus Prime.
a voyager or ultra sized race car/bot hotrod that plugs into a
trailer. the trailer can break up into combining armor pieces to
attach to hotrod's robot mode. to turn the figure into Rodimus Prime.
trailer would split up into the following combining armor pieces:
boots,forearms,chest+new head. back pack wing with rocket pack or flip
down shoulder canons.
toy would come with the following accessories: matrix of leadership.
hotrod's & rodimus prime's hand guns. attachable saw blade hand.
(4) 5 liscensed vechicles that combine to form menasor.
use either new mold alternators,new mold alternity,new mold movie
liscensed vechicles.
basically I envision 4 deluxe sized liscensed sports cars & one
voyager sized vechicle.
they'd be 2 color variations released: decepticons colored versions
would be stunticons that form menasor. autobots colored versions would
get those popular 1984 car autobots as a combiner.
(5)Predaking: 5 updated homage new mold 1986 G-1 Preadcons that
combine to form Predaking.
4 deluxes & 1 voyager sized toy.
keep all the original alt modes,robot designs & colors. add the much
needed poseable joints,higher sculpt & more paint apps.
I prefer there be no pop on/off accessories. instead have the combiner
pieces built internally inside each individual figure.
(6) G-1 Galvatron: there needs to be a actual updated homage new mold
based off the cartoon animation designs of 1986 G-1 Galvatron.
the galvatron robot will transform into a laser canon alt mode.
the toy will be either voyager or $27 ultra size. the toy will be
beyond super poseable & G-1 cartoon colored accurate.
(7) Trypticon: a updated homage new mold based off the 1986 trpticon
G-1 designs.
A leader sized toy. toy would transform from
robotic T-Rex to battle station & then a robot mode.
the robot mode would have a outer dinosaur skull helmet with a inner
robot head with fanged robot teeth.
the T-rex would split down the middle like the G-1 1986 trypticon toy
to form the battle station alt mode.
maybe include a purple minicon sports cars that plugs into trpticons
dinosaur chest like the 1986 toy has.
please delete the electronic walking dinosaur feature that the 1986
trypticon toy had. instead add more poseability in robot & dinosaur
repaint ideas are as follows: 1986 overkill,grimlock, 1992 takara
brave dino-geist,BW Megatron.
(8) Sixshot: a updatted homage new mold 1987 sixshot toy.
the toy needs to be either $27 ultra sized or leader size due to it's
transforming 6 alt modes.
toy would be a super poseable 6 changer. maybe get rid of a original
1987 vechicle mode in favor of a new animal alt mode.
perhaps the toy could transform into more realistic better designed
alt modes.
my 6 alt modes would be as follows: robot mode,winged
& gun
i'd prefer a perfect infusion of rounded off parts infused with blocky
parts. the upper robot arms & upper robot legs would be all round &
muscular looking. the robot forearms & lower legs would be more
blocky. the wolf claws would be more sharp & claw like. the wolf head
this time would look more organic & would have wolf ears & fanged
teeth. the robot upper chest would be blocky while the lower stomach &
waist is more rounded off.
weapons the toy would come with would be as follows: 2 huge hand gun
riffles & one large sword that could also form the wolf's tail.
(9)Takara brave 1992 Dinogeist. a updated homage new mold based off
the takara "brave" toy line dino-geist toy.
have the toy be in the leader class size level.
basically follow the original 1992 toy designs down to the letter.
only add the much needed poseability like as follows: poseable wrist
+fingers,universal shoulder joints that go up/down & split/extend out
to the sides in/out. universal hip upper leg joints that enable the
legs to walk forward/backward & split/extend out/in. elbow,knee &
ankle joints. rotate 360 degree swivel joints in the arms & legs. ball
jointed robot head joint. rotate 360 degree swivel waist joint. tons
of poseable added to the dinosaur alt mode in the dinosaur legs,feet
head & upper arms.
YOU MUST KEEP & DUPLICATE THE 1985 Grimlock T-REX dinosaur head+neck
that the 1992 dino-geist toy has. have the mouth open & close,with
fanged beast teeth.
Jetmode,robot mode & dinosaur mode must look similar to the 1992 dino-
geist toy. with the same pop out/flip up weapons & accessories.
same colors from the 1992 dino-geist toy must be used on this
upadatted homage version.
(10)shockwave,a updatted homage new mold based off the 1985 shockwave
toy designs.
a robot that transforms into a laser space gun.
voyager sized with tons of poeability. modeled after the 1985 toy &
cartoon designs. proper honage colors used.
please no electronic sounds or light up features. there just annoying
& take up too much of the sculpt+poseabilty toy design budget.
(11) 1987 "horrorcons" apeface & snapdargon: updatted homage new molds
based off the designs of the 1987 trippple changer "horrorcons"
headmasters apeface & snapdragon.
individually sold voyager sized toys. they wont combine with each
each figure will include a headmaster that transforms from humanoid
form to robot head then to beast head.
snapdragon & apeface will look very closely like there 1987 G-1 sculpt
designs. perhaps round off parts more,make e'm sleeker looking.
definatelly make e'm more super poseable than what there were in 1987.
keep the colors schemes true to there 1987 toys.
snapdargon will transform into a dragon,then robot then jet. apeface
will transform into a ape then a robot then a jet.
jet cock pits will open for headmasters to sit in. the robot chest
will flip down to show a tech spec reading when the headmaster becomes
the robot head.
repaint ideas: a recolor using the apeface mold could be 1998 optimal
a recolor using the snapdragon mold could be grimlock,overkill,bw
(12) a masterpiece style Sixshot updatted homage new mold toy.
toy would be beyond super poseable.
have realistic vechicle alt modes.
very sleek & ninja designed.
leader sized figure.
comes with tons of cool weapons like: sword,chinese stars,riffle guns. perhaps have the electronic light up features inside the sword & 2 guns.

All I want is more Energon style combiners.
