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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

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!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

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?

Doesn't help that every single carded Deluxe is an Autobot (even Mindset the guy who was supposed to be a Decepticon), and 3 of the 4 Voyagers are Autobots too. Even the Scouts (where there are the most Decepticons to Autobots) are still out numbered 2 to 3.

This is almost like the Henkei! Henkei! lineup, but at least they had like another 5 to 6 Decepticons that were exclusives to add to the 7 normal releases (plus Ravage and Nightstick).

Meh, whatever. Since Bodyblock is probably going to become G2 Rook for me, it's easy as pie to resticker him, and ignore the random packaging blurb. I see the silver borders are back on the rubsigns, it seems like these must be the miniature ones they're starting to use on the Legends. It would be hard to find a flat surface large enough for a standard sized rubsign on a lot of the Scout toys we've gotten lately.

Deep Dive, Nightstick, Starscream, Megatron. Potentially Frenzy if they make him, and I'd guess we will get Starscream redecoed into Thundercracker and Skywarp.

You forgot Trailcutter and Prowl for Autobots.

Also we have a lot of potential repaint/remolds still unaccounted for who may end up in RTS and could be Decepticons... Thunderwing, Lugnut, Gen 2 Optimus, Tomahawk, Scourge and Wreck-Gar will get remolds.

Also remember that Reveal the Shield is just a gimmick of a part of the 2010 "Transformers" line, which includes the yellowbox, redbox, Generations, all those mini-cons... if you count the Seacons reissue that's 6 more Decepticons in the Transformers line. Do they have rub signs? If not they should.

PCC is Decepticon heavy at the moment, I think.

Look at the list above a couple posts (I added the Legends). Not going to count Nightstick as a separate guy. We can't count any retools/redecos that may or may not come out. Even one like Frenzy (the guy I call Rumble).

Even if they did come out I doubt we'd get solid waves of Decepticons (like we did with Autobot Deluxes).

Power Core Combiners and Generations are pretty evenly split between factions. RtS is overabundant in Autobots.
