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.

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.

Why does Heavy Load, a G1 guy (well, a "Classic series" guy?whatever that is) have a Mini-Con partner?

As we all know, the Decepticons found Heavy Load is his laboratory with his brain module fried out due to hundreds of years of exposure to toxic chemicals. He was essentially useless to the Decepticons at this point, so they assigned Drill Bit to him to see if he could do anything with him to make him functional enough to be of some kind of use.

Drill Bit discovered that by Powerlinxing with Heavy Load, he could very easily take over his body, since his broken mind could not put up any kind of resistance. To Drill Bit's surprise, Heavy Load retained all of his chemistry skills deep within his sub-processors. A "restored" Heavy Load climbed the Decepticon ranks, with nobody really realizing that it was Drill Bit that was controlling his actions. In those times were Drill Bit could not be there to guide him, Heavy Load amused himself by torturing Autobots and develops poisons and corrosive bombs for Decepticon gangs.

What's the deal with Hound's bracket that Ravage rides on?

On a scouting mission, Hound intercepted a signal that Soundwave inadvertently left unencrypted. Hound relayed the signal back to Autobase for analysis by Hubcap. It was discovered to be a control signal that coordinated the cassette's transformation and docking and undocking with his chest. Hubcap developed this into a device which would allow Hound, at short distances, to force cassettes to transform and dock with a specially designed stasis clamp installed on his Jeep mode, allowing the cassettes to be captured. However, if this trick is ever used in the presence of Soundwave, he will realize he needs to reconfigure his protocols.

I came up with something similar to your Heavy Load story during Energon. I characterized Rapid Run as being a "front" for his two Mini-Cons who had been generally rejected by the Bulks because their special ability was to take control of whoever they Powerlinked to. The Rapid Run body was a corpse left over from the Unicron Battles which their powers could reanimate. I never really worked out the practical explanation for switching between heads that would be distinct from what Sideways had already done, though. He/they were affiliated with the Terrorcons under Scorponok's command.

Universe Hotshot:

upon the loss of Vector Primes' corporeal existence in the UT timeline the mini-con Jolt becomes the new guardian of time space, instantly becoming a nexus point for all other versions of himself throughout the multiverse. Sensing the presence of Unicron in other realities Joltprime reconfigure himself and his formerArmada partner and transports them across existences to continue the battle for the side of order.

-and then I realized I can't use Prime in that context now.

Oooh boy.

Let's start near the beginning:

The Quintessons are not so much a race as a way of thought.

While the originally Cephalapodic species of the Quintessons still rules, many other species have been absorbed into their transorganic existence, offering near-immortality, the freedom to engage in whatever endevour one desires, and freedom from scarcity.
In that respect, they are much like the shattered glass quintessons, however through immortality and freedom from restraint brings decadence, and cruelty. The Quintessons lacked for nothing, and saw themselves as gods.
To unite their empire they built an artificial planet around a star, acting as a new capital world, and supplying them with limitless power from the star.

To serve them as they lived in luxury, they built servitor robots of many designs, fufilling many different forms and fuctions.
Unfortunately for the Quintessons, their knowledge of science was too perfect, the energy from the star, even as it was forced to age ahead of its time into a blue dwarf, acted as the spark that was needed to bring their slaves' artificial programming to full awareness.
It took generations for the first cybertronians to fully awake, and even longer for them to chafe at the restraints. Even as they were shipped off-world to become slaves or guardians on the thousand worlds of the Quintesson imperium, a small group decided that they would never be more than product to the Quintessons, never viewed as equals. And so they plotted.

These thirteen ringleaders found allies amongst the other cybertronians, armed themselves with what they could find or make, and eventually struck. A great war errupted, the slaves rose up, and threw off their shackles, and forced the Quintessons off world, although the final battle was decided between the 13 heroes, forged in battle, against the Devourer, a humanoid weapon created by the Quintesson scientist Primacron.

With the battle concluded, and the corpse of the Devourer reduced to rubble in cybertron's orbit, the Quintessons were driven from Cybertron, supposedly never to return. Here a new battle began, as brother turned on brother.
Megatronus Prime argued that the Quintessons must be exterminated, for they would never let the cybertronians have their freedom. Prima Prime, declared that he simply wanted the Quintessons off world, they would no longer be a threat, and cybertron would be able to remain free.
In the end, Megatronus murdered Prima in an ambush, and pinned the blame on the Quintessons.
When the truth emerged, Megatronus was sentenced to Imprisonment. The primes now knowing of an ancient Quintesson transwarp gate deep within Cybertron. Here, bound and disarmed, Megatronus was sentenced into a realm of pure fire, or rather, transported into the heart of a star far, far across the void. Before he was gated away, Megatronus, now stripped of his name, and dubbed "The Fallen", proclamed that he would return to plague the galaxy again, and all who would not join him would perish in war.

Berift of the leadership of Prima, and with the shock of this primal fratricide, the Primes were forever sundered, and many left Cybertron, seeking other worlds to guide or rule, as they saw fit.
Meanwhile a Golden Age developed on Cybertron, gates to link other worlds were created and new worlds were seeded with Cybertronian life. The wreckage of the battle with the Devourer had settled into an asteroid belt and a system of moons, where Modus Prime, the smallest of the original 13 rebels, had brought his "minicon" bretherin to dwell, although within the largest of the moons, the ember of the Devourer still burned, and he drank the light coming from the star within cybertron, and he plotted.

Amongst the far stars, the Quintessons were no longer united, and their mighty empire fell apart, their worlds sundered with each world claiming their right to rule the others, and the devastation of worlds commensed, until only a handful were left.
In this expanse of shattered worlds, the remaining Quintessons wait, remember the time they were once as gods, and plot.

At the core of the galaxy, near the event horizon of a black hole, the Scientist Primacron dwells, planning to reclaim the world he views as his, and to create a new servent, more powerful than the Devourer. And so he plots.

In a star, the Fallen exists, in constant agony, the very metal that made up his body disolving in the plasma fires of creation, screaming vengence upon his fellows and their children, as his rage becomes all that sustains his spark, until it merges with the plasma of the star, and his spark of darkness becomes a field of energy and rage, he does not plot, for now he has nothing left but anger, and a desire to cover the entire galaxy in his red light.

My personal canon is based steeply in a combination of Armada and Animated. Basically the plot of Animated, but with the cast of Armada and Minicons instead of the Allspark.

When it comes to personal canon I don't have much of a one, but I do have a Crisis-style explanation for multiversal singularities that I'm fond of - I like to think that there used to just be one universe, but the forces released in the Thirteen's final battle with Unicron were so catastrophic that they shattered reality itself and it splintered into the multiverse. And it's because they existed before this shattering happened that Unicron, Primus and the Thirteen are singularities.

EDIT: And after a moment's further thought, I've just decided that the "Aligned" continuity is the "New Earth" in this scenario - what the universe would be like if it had never splintered, thereby explaining its kinda odd (kinda nonsensical) "separate from the multiverse" status.

I actually went so far as to draw up a full MS Word document listing of changes I'd make to A/E/C; anyone who wants to see the full shebang can shoot me a PM.

The gist of it?

Armada: The kids would be re-written so that they'd be rounded characters instead of being so relatively flat; in the process, they'd actually become useful for more than just finding the occasional Mini-Con crystal *and* it would explain why their portrayal in Energon is so radically different from their Armada personas. As part of it, the episode "Vacation" would be chucked in favor of a character-building episode that would not only play up a number of "hidden depths" of certain characters but also explain the whole "Wait - Alexis is supposed to be Vietnamese?!" snafu (Alexis tries to trace her family tree, in the process walking right into a trap set up by Sideways).

Energon: 90% of the episodes would be tossed in favor of both a more streamlined plot and an actual explanation as to why so much of the cast was so messed up in the head.

Cybertron: Cybertron can actually stand on its own as a self-contained series with just a tiny bit of tinkering to make it better.
Lexicon: still up and running!
