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.

Anyone still need a Chaos on Velocitron set? Found one at TRU today...

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.

@  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

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 July 2017 - 04:15 PM)

SSA response? "How would we know to un enroll you if you don't tell us?"

I'm supposed to un-enrolled in Medicare at the end of the month (36 months post-transplant), but I'm getting a bill for next quarter's coverage.

Okay, I'm currently working on my review of the first burst Deluxes that I bought (Crankcase, Roadbuster and Topspin), and was wondering what people would like to see next, since my existing rubric has hit a four-way tie. I have four things that could all reasonably claim to be next (Human Alliance Roadbuster is about the only thing that doesn't have that claim), and was wondering what reader preferences were.

1. The second wave movie Deluxes (I got Thundercracker and Laserbeak), since I did do the second wave Cyberverse Action Sets right after the first wave.

2. The second wave HA Basics, on the grounds that I should fill in the newly acquired smaller stuff before moving to bigger.

3. Reveal the Shield Warpath, on the grounds that I should fill in what I can of pre-movie before moving on with more movie stuff.

4. First burst movie Voyagers (I got Megatron, Shockwave and Skyhammer) on the grounds of finishing off the last of the "street date" stuff I got before moving on.

I will note, depending on what job I get and when I have to move for the Fall, it's entirely possible I won't get around to all of the stuff I've already bought before I have to pack up and go (in which case the unreviewed things will definitely not be going into long term storage like a lot of my possessions will!).

So you can hover while you hover.

(You can probably attach Cyberverse Blackout, too, via his C clip hands. Not that I'm sure why you'd want to.)

Well, there was a last minute burst of support for the Human Alliance Basics, and since I just finished the Deluxe Wave 1 review (will be posting after this) that means the poll is closed. I'll do the Basics next, then the Voyagers. Although I reserve the right to do quickie redeco type reviews in between. icon-hotrod.gif

---Dave

ETA: Well, the poll WOULD be closed if I could figure out how to close just the poll without locking the topic. For the record, the poll has 5 votes for HA Basics, 4 for Voyagers, 1 for Deluxe wave 2, none for Warpath.
