@  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

Isn't there a G5?

Gen3 would look like Gen2, except produced in the earlier 2000s so I'm going to assume that rather than 90s as heck, it would instead look Grimdark as heck. Everyone would be gritty realistic repaints with ridiculous battle damage and any new molds would have scowls all the time

Well that's why I answered the way I did. Generation 2 as a toy line was a lot of G1 guys painted in crazy colors.. but as a story that was being told the Generation 2 Transformers were on Off Shoot race of Transformers who considered the Generation 1 guys to be outdated ancestors.

Hmm

Okay, you know what? Let's do this logically.

G1 to G2:

Recut rebroadcast cartoon

Hideous garish recolours of old toys and a few new ones

Short-lived comic-book which was grimdark and gritty and EXTREME



So then G3 would be


Completely new cartoon that contradicts previous shows and features characters acting wildy different (Starscream is loyal,the contructicons ditch the decepticons and join the autobots after two episodes, the Dinobots are smart, Soundwave talks like a normal guy)

Reserved, dulled military-style repaints with decals and serial numbers, and uses soft pastel colours for highlights

long-running comic book that is pleasant and positive, with a relaxed pace and a very slow, deliberate mystery plot

Funny, I was just wondering that earlier-- glad this topic was made to save me the trouble.

It might seem simple at first, but then, how does one count concurrent generations, i.e. Beast Wars and Machine Wars?

I guess that since G2 continued G1, then sequential lines would be different generations as well-- Beast Wars and Beast Machines, for example, and AEC would be three separate generations as well.

rid is H1

Armada is Ut1
Energon is UT2
Cybertron is UT3

Prime is G1

then we have Lam1-3 which are the FU-niverse

(see how the 2 kinda g1 based parallel universes are lettered on either side of G icon-arcee.gif )

the G3 toyline also includes any 'Universe' toy because of how Beastmachines ended

Most of the fandoms that use "Generation" as a name for their toys tend to do it as a line-wide shift of engineering.

For instance, GI Joe is G1 until Valor vs Venom happened, and the basic buck and sculpting style changed. 25th Anniversary is G3.

We apparently ignore misnomers like GI Joe EXTREME, though.
