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.

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?

Found Trilogy Prime today (the Deluxe with the trailer) at my local Target (65th Street in Sacramento, CA), and boy, does it look snazzy. But I couldn't buy it because it rang up for $30. (that is why the picture is of the toy in the Target employee's hands and not in my own with a receipt next to it.) Still... this might be a news item, as I don't recall this being sighted anywhere domestically yet.

It's got the gradient, but it's kind of faint. No painted rims though.

It opens, but not the way trailers actually open. But there's no conversion or anything, it just cracks open. There's nothing inside it. It is cool though. I'd buy it for $20. jive, who am I kidding, if I had the dough I would have bought it anyway, LOL.

UPDATE: I talked to my man who tipped me off about this item's in-stockness, and he says it IS $30. (He said '20 dollar trailer' and I misinterpreted that. He LITERALLY meant they were charging $20 for the trailer!) It sure is a pretty box, though.

Everything but this Prime is now an Asia exclusive. Treadshot, did the worker bee happen to mention anything about a street date? All the Targets have the TF Prime figures but aren't putting them out on the shelf.

If hasbro was smart, they would have only sold this deluxe Optimus with this trailer. I'm sure a lot of people won't be getting it since the the base figure looks worse than the original release (though not necessarily worse than the crazy gold repaint) and comes with no weapons, but just a big box instead.

Truth be told, I've not been happy with any of the DotM trailers. I originally wanted both the CV one and the Ultimate one, but I've persuaded myself that I don't need them. It's kind of a shame that I've only felt the need to buy two Optimus toys from the whole of the DotM line (normal CV commander and the first WM deluxe).

With a deluxe-scale cab and a trailer that size? Yeah, that's about a $30 toy. I believe it.

Well, there's one Transformers item I'll be hunting for now. If the gold gradient on the nose of the truck cab really is faint/nonexistent, I'll probably just use the first Wal-Mart deluxe OP that I currently have instead (he at least has a gun to store in the trailer, too).

I *think* my local Wal-Mart still has the second one. If you're interested, I'll take a look next time I'm there.

I was half-joking, actually; I've been on the fence about Lunarfire OP because counting this deluxe OP with trailer, that would be three iterations of the mold that I'd have gotten - and they'd all barely look different. icon-waspy.gif I don't typically buy duplicates of the same mold, since I try to budget my hobby spending; I think the only times I've gotten multiple versions of the same mold are a few Mini-Con teams (just three of the sword-combiner teams, really), the Energon combiner components, and the Cybertron Hot Shot and Red Alert molds (replacing their normal forms with the Cyb Defense versions and getting the extensively-visually-different Breakaway and Cannonball). Lunarfire OP's oversized gun is tempting, but not really tempting enough to spend full deluxe price on just to get. icon-op.gif
