@  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.

@  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

I recently bought the legends class RTS gun Megatron and tore it out of its packaging while driving home. Imediately after converting it to gun mode I noticed it has two horizontal pegs and a slot in his left leg that makes up part of the grip.
Is he designed to be held by somebody and if so by who?

I know he doesn't fit MP Prime or Megs. Anybody have any clue why he has these slots?

Well, at this point, you might as well wait for MP-11 Starscream to come out next Spring. Unless you're extremely budget conscious. But the G1-coloured MP-03 Starscream is going for roughly the same price on eBay currently, so...

Well, by the fact that he has big, semi-articulate fingers, anyways. He can't grasp fully around the handle (well, neither can MP Starscream. But the purpose-designed tabs/slots help that), and it's not a particularly stable grip.

Can the 3rd party Infinity Warfare hands hold him? They fit on Predaking, and all the Energon combiners, so if they hold him, that might be a cool combo.

Never tried. But I don't think so. The IW hands are designed to a fairly particular grip width (maybe about 7-8mm?), and I think Megatron's handle exceeds that width. Any wider than that, and the thumb will get knocked out of place, and there goes any sense of grip, seeing as the fingers definitely wouldn't be able to wrap around properly.

$15? Not bad, might see about picking it up when I got some extra money, so the fist works with just the G1 combiners?

I bought one of those WST Shockwaves just for my FP Bruticus to hold. Nice little figure.

And yes, the included fist is for G1 combiners, G1 Bruticus inparticular because of the coloring.

Should work on anything with a 5mm hole (whether that location should really have a fist protruding from it is your choice icon-waspy.gif).

I'm pretty sure FP Bruticus can hold Shockwave there in gun mode with his own hands, though.
