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!

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?

On first glance, the Protectobot APC and Tank seem weird. But that's only because we're used to G1. "Protect" doesn't necessarily mean rescue vehicles. You can protect things with armored vehicles too!

Woo, I really like the Destron team. Great colors there.
The protectobots are ok. It's weird having a jet, tank thing, and half-track thing on a rescue team.
The other repaints look ok, but nothing special there.

Interesting that they switched the Minicons entirely around. Especially since Darkstream can't hold Razorbeam in axe mode. Really. I've tried.

Loving putting Caliburst with Searchlight tho. Great combo there.

I love the Destrons, but the Protectobots are kinda awkward. I would have preffered the arm jet and the jeep to go with them, but I suspect Hasbro wanted to mix up the limbs a bit more.

But are they a rescue team. Sure, the G1 dudes were all vehicles... but what in the name 'Protectobots' forces them to be rescue? They're protectors. Tanks serve that role.

I loved the Destron Team at BotCon and I love them even more now. It helps that I think Huffer is the best PCC figure.

It does look like the Caliburst minicon goes better with the Backwind scout. Least, IMO.

The Huffer mold looks amazing in the Dark Convoy colors. Destrons are a must buy.

I didn't know they were going to swap the commanders and 5-pack leaders. Makes it easier to skip the Skyburst recolor as he's the weakest of Wave 1 IMO.

I'm liking this line more and more. It's great to have so much "fiddle value" in such small toys.

Ah, so I guess Bombshock's repaint ISN'T Bludgeon influenced like I thought from the slides at Botcon.

Not really into any of these new colors, so I'm glad I already picked up Bombshock. At least they can split up the Minicons and drones in any way they want so everything isn't completely a straight up repaint.
