He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

The devil is a part-timer!

@  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.

This is to continue on the thread I started in the Iacon Art gallery forum since the comic is not finished. So it's a project that began 5-6 years ago, that Beamer, Lieger and me were working on but never got to finish and I recently decided to finish it on my own. I will use this thread to keep everyone updated.

See pages 1 to 6 at the Jump!

The autobot cast of this comic is based on Beamer's fan characters mostly, but if I have time, I will probably pick random fan characters to cameo. I am looking for some fan character Decepticons to fill in the following slots :

Decepticons

1 - Fusillade
2 - Fulcrum
3 - Database
4 - Warhead
5 - Defias

Autobots

1 - Lieger
2 - Beamer
3 - Graph
4 - Polaris
5 - Rodeo
6 - Grounder

Here is Page 1 again :

You know, I wanted to use Soundwave for this, but since your character looks like him a little, it will be easy for me to adapt my current Soundwave model to Database .... so your in.

And here is another tease panel ....

Yeah, Database started out as my idea of what an Updated Soundwave/Communications officer could be like around the time of Armada since now adays we use the internet more then radio to get alot of our info, Even through all the redesigns he's maintained elements of Soundwave, and in his updated origins (not via the profile there) he's the same Model number as Soundwave (Sorta like the Seekers, Datsans, and everyone with Bumblebee's transformation)

Well, if you're looking for Decepticon brawlers, I've got

Saw-Blade
and
Crumble

On the more low-key sneak-attack side

Facade
and
Knockoff

Well, Crumble seems to be heading to my list of choices. I am however having Metermaster appear as a cameo. How does the chest of crumble look like? Having trouble identifying stuff there.

Well here's a couple of options if you were interested,

Computerscream -
A weedy, lanky, basicish looking bot. Cold, monotone, could be mistaken for a drone. one of the most effective hackers/computer techs ever known. Can house Diskbots like Soundwave does cassettebots.


Zip Zap -
A vain, self loving ego maniac, Think he's the best at any and everything. Turns into a manta ray

If you want to use either Warhead or Deadeye that will be more than fine with me icon-waspy.gif

Warhead: cynical, methodical, dramatic, superiority complex.

Deadeye: stereotyped aussie tracker and hunter. Cruel and efficient.

Didn't you have a picture of Warhead drawn by Dez6 some years back? I could have sworn I've seen that.
