@  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.

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

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.

Pass. Might have been tempted with a retooled head on Goldbug, but no. Wouldn't be tempted at all with Dai Atlas unless he could be repurposed, as the grey version made a nice Classics Camshaft.

The colors rock, give them the new heads as stated in the descriptions and call it a day! icon-silverbolt.gif

I'm glad that Goldbug has plenty of blue on him and Dai Atlas has some orange highlights.

Yeah, these shots are clearly photoshops. You think they would have waited to show off the new heads though.

Even then, I'll pass: I'm spending enough money on TFs already.

How come, because of the colors or because you presume he has Convoy's head still (despite the listing)?

The colors are damn pretty. I love that shade of blue.

Unfortunately, the breakdown of the colors does everything it can to prevent the toy from actually looking like Dia Atlas. Way too much blue, not enough orange, and definitely not enough white. (It would be impossible to put the white in the correct position, because most of it was on his wings. But he still desperately needs more white somewhere.)

Also Alternity Convoy mold is awesome, it will make a great Dai Atlas.

I read it, I just figured the pictures were more likely to be the true product vs. some old choppy translated blurb.

if these come out and DO have appropriate heads I'll reconsider, but these pics are not doing the toys any favors for me.


ZacWilliam, if one of your biggest selling points is "new head" releasing pics that seem to show them not having new heads isn't a very good strategy. At least include sketches or something...

Perhaps these images weren't meant for mass release.

It's probably only a matter of time before we see photos with the actual head sculpts. It's not the first time this has happened (seeing images without the final head sculpts) with TakaraTomy product.

You just went full *scrubbed*. You never go full *scrubbed*! icon-waspy.gif

And while I don't have anything against the Convoy mold, this paint scheme does a terrible job of evoking Dai Atlus. A new head isn't going to magically correct that. Who were the other ones said to come out? Banzai-tron?
