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)

I call bullshit on that

@  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

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  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?

And this, linked for size.

I believe these are the first full images to show up, everything previously was just from solicitations or previews. The shield seems a bit silly, but I do like the Stealth Force mode it makes. Now I'm just curious how accurate the paint there is to the final product, the red toes aren't very promising.

Another one at the link below:
http://www.tfw2005.c...s-magazine.html

I like the red, the gray, and the blue on him. The gun is cool, but the shield is strange (I was hoping for movie accuracy) and I'm disappointed his paint job isn't a little more elaborate.

I love the crazy Mad Max truck mode.

How is this mold? Some people say it's horrifically overcomplex, some people say it's the best toy ever. Will I hate it if I'm not a huge fan of the Battle Blades voyager mold?

I love the mold. I think it's great, but it does take a long time to get used to transforming it (as it's complex). I no longer find it difficult to transform, but I have 6 versions of it (I believe).

Chip, if you don't like BB Prime, I imagine you won't be in love with this one either...I don't have a RotF leader Prime in any iteration, but by all accounts BB Prime is a more manageable version of the larger toy.

Also today is the first time I've seen this particular Prime. Love it. I hope Hasbro picks it up. I can't tell if he still has his blades, though. Seems like he would.

If he has the modified forearms included with Jetwing Optimus he won't (which I imagine he does have).

Because we've already gotten our yearly allotment of three leader molds per movie line.

It's just a new rib-cage anyway.
