@  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.

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.

Megatron's face looks kinda skeletal. I'm diggin it, and the 'Bots are nice too. Still want to see 'Screamer, Soundwave, Bulky and Ratchet's vehicle mode.

Well, the character designs certainly don't mean anything about the quality of the show itself. But based on those designs, like Animated, I'm probably not going to be too interested in the Prime toys.

Which is fine.

It's pointless for me to say, but I honestly am not feeling these in the absolute slightest. They're just...uninteresting. They don't grab your attention like they should. Suffice to say, I'm pretty bummed that this is the sole TV show/toyline we're getting for the next 5-10 years. That's a hell of a long time to wait for something different.

I really like the way these look. It's like they took the general idea of the movie designs but got rid of everything I felt was wrong with those. They're now sleeker, smoother, traditionally "armored", distinctive and colorfull. Very decent design job. Prime is the weak link to me, looking the most movie-ish. But Megatron, Ratchet, Arcee and Cliffjumper are all very cool.

I like them a LOT MORE than I liked the Animated designs early on. Now of course that show turned out to be the best thing since Beast Wars, but just goes to show you can't trust first impressions. The writing quality will be the biggest factor IMO.


ZacWilliam, really wants to see Bulkhead and was a bit disapointed not to see him here.

Won't be surprised if you change your mind later though. Once we, you know, see actual toys. But I won't!

I'm actually more interested in these than I was when we got the first promo image for Animated and I ended up loving it, so things are looking very good so far. I don't know how long Prime will end up being, but I'm actually glad that Hasbro is actually trying to give this series its own distinct visual style just like with Animated.

The toys or the story itself have to really interest me to want to buy them. I'm sure I'll pick up some once they come.
