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?

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

Oh, I liiiiiiike those.

Well, two of those. Sorry, Jolt. But the other two have great alt-modes, nice proportions, and Terradive has an awesome head design. It's good to see movie-line toys that aren't so shellformery or spindly.

I'm seeing shades of Bulkhead quickstrike in the Tomahawk design. Depending on how his color end up in real life, he might be a servicable stand in for Highbrow in my collection.

An attack helicopter AND another New Deluxe fighter jet?


I'm loving them, Terradive looks like a Su-47 (the same way Dirge and Jetblade are Harrier-like). Plus TRIDENT!

Tomahawk looks pretty good, his legs look they'll be better in the chicken leg like configuration, and his helicopter mode would make for a nice Armada Cyclonus homage.

Mmmm.... Tomahawk is definately Armada Cyclonus and Terradive evokes Darkhawk's arch enemy Evil Hawk or Dargin Bok. If that was what his real name was spelled like...

I'll reiterate that I hope for Tomahawk to be some kind of WWII plane (a P-40 would be most appropriate).

I keep thinking he'd be an Apache-esque Attack Chopper, but that's just me.

I called Tomahawk.

I called it SO HARD.

Both look fantastic, tons of character and looks like great engineering as well. I hope that Tomahawk resembles Armada Cyclonus as much as I think he does from this picture, he even seems to have the crazy, s**t-eating grin. Definitely some exciting stuff!

Oooooooh, Tomahawk looks great, the Cyclonus resemblance makes that a fairly certain purchase for me. And I may want to get Terradive just based on the trident, heh.
