@  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.

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.

Made by the same guys who made the WST G2 Optimus Prime, and the WST Music Label trailer, we are going to be getting a WST Ultra Magnus trailer.These guys also make a bootleg Magnus cab, so don't worry if you don't have a real one. From the size of the cab, I'd guess it to stand about 4 inches tall, about the size of a Legends toy. Here are pictures of the prototype:

I picked up the G2 Optimus with trailer, roller, extending arm and stickers from this guy last month for under $7!



I still need the WST Music Label one:

It would be neat if they can just take that mold and multiply the size by about 5 or 6 for Masterpiece. Still, this will make an excellent Legends G1 Ultra Magnus.

For that price, I guess Ultra Magnus will be affordable. (that G2 trailer is sweet.) how much was shipping?
It's good that we'll finally have a WSTF Ultra Magnus that's actually obtainable unlike the previously existing one.

Uhm... Even if they could make this mold to hold Masterpiece UM, it really wouldn't be all that great. First, Masterpiece UM's bulk wouldn't likely be supported a super sized version of the original mold. Plus, it really wouldn't be a Masterpiece level product anymore.

Now if this (or something like it) would be much better in my book.

I paid $19 for 3 different KO WST products together (G2 Starscream, G2 Ramjet and G2 Optimus), shipping incluced. So I did the math and figured Optimus to be under $7.

http://cgi.ebay.com/...em=320530677802

When he makes a new mold, it usually costs more, then as they sell, he lowers to cost to what the market bares, and then makes a redeco and sells it for more, again slowly dropping over the months. I hope we get a shining Magnus and a Diaclone Magnus from this.

So far this guy has sold 4 or 5 unpainted prototypes from his ebay stores. So I guess it's coming along. I might have to pick up the ipod one before this comes out though so I have one of each trailer.

He does have a Pepsi Prime one, but it's just the G1 trailer with a Pepsi sticker, not the different Pepsi bottle holding trailer.

Its annoying that this the first color choice, but...I'm just glad that we're getting a proper WST Ultra Magnus. I don't know if any of the rest have you done this just for kicks but try setting up your WST with your normal City Bots. The scale is so cool.
