I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

@  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.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 July 2017 - 01:27 PM)

well, they had to go somewhere.

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.

It's from the The Dark Knight toyline. X-Pandables playset, they called it "Bat-Bunker", but between the workbench, the change wall, the wall of gadgets and the Tumbler hangar stickered back there, it's just the Batcave with a different name.

They also did a "Lair of the Joker" set like that, but it was more one-third bank vault, one-third abandonned warehouse used by criminals and one-third jail cell... Far less impressive than the batcave.

They made some Oracle figures, just not in DCIH style.

Well. For Kyle Rayner in my DCIH collection, I had two options.
1) Pay ridiculous premium prices for the Parallax one that essentially solely exists so Hal Jordan is more easily forgiven for being possessed by Parallax because, hey, it happened to Kyle too you guys!
2) Customize my own.

Naturally, I went with option 2.


Pretty straightforward, I used Clear John Stewart's body, which works because it's essentially the same costume design Kyle had in STAS, and Marcus's head from the Terminator Salvation toyline, which looked nothing like the actor and worked well for Kyle when he's drawn with shorter hair.

That looks pretty good Detour.

I have a soft spot for Kyle, since I grew up with him as the Green Lantern.

Group shot of my DCIH GLs:


Kilowog's tippy toes pose means he has to lean against the backdrop, until I can find an effective method to reshape his ankles and knees to a proper upright position.

Regarding Larfleeze's Lantern, Mattel answered that he always hugs it close, being the lantern of greed, so there is no handle.

Batman Beyond looks like he has matte paint instead of gloss now, or maybe that's just the photo. SPrime's headsculpt looks terrible.

I'll still buy them though. Sigh.

I wish they would read the comics. The orange lantern has been drawn with a handle every time I can remember. It was in the debut of Larfleeze, and was drawn in the most recent New Guardians issues.

All DC figures are 50% off at target this week. That makes DCUC figures $8, and I saw the entire STRIPE wave today. I could have saved $50 bucks on them. icon-megs.gif

It's my personal belief that katanas are grossly overrated.

That's why I gave my Deathstroke figure a rapier instead.

I have 2, so I really have no business complaining. The best part is that in 5 years, house number one is paid off and the rent will help pay house #2 off early as well. icon-ironhide.gif


To contribute to the thread, I should bring up that there is a chance Nekron from DCUC Wave 20 is not coming with his scythe. I just bought this one to make sure I get a complete figure.
