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.

@  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.

A member posted some pics from Robot Kingdom of the new TFP stuff. Gaia Unicron and Darkness Megatron. From the pics, Megs looks like a Voyager. Also some PCC combiners, not sure who since I don't collect those.

Edit: I've had my coffee now and got a better look at Megs. ^^ Changed info to voyager.

Oh, so they're releasing the PCC's in their original colors? Shame, I was wondering if they'd mix things up a bit.

Would like better pictures of Gaia Unicron. Darkness Megatron seems to be Voyager Megs with a bat-backpack?

Megatron is really confusing. I thought it was the deluxe, that's what the ship looks like. But it seems like he has the shoulder pad armor like Voyager does. Plus those added bat wings. It's the ship mode that really throwing me off. That looks like the deluxe from that angle.

And since you called it a bat-backpack, now I suddenly want this fig. >_>

I wouldn't give up hope yet that these won't be redecoed. These types of pictures from magazines often just show the Hasbro versions (the same thing was true for much of Henkei! Henkei! when they were solicited in this type of mag).

They're just the Hasbro stock photos.

Well that's better.

Looks like they went for unifying color schemes for the drone teams.

The results for Combatmaster/Bombshock look pretty boring. Pass

I kinda like Jetmaster's colors though. Blue and white is pretty. (So close to the Jetfire colors I wanted to see, but just missing. Ah well.) His singular small robot form is quite nice.

Can't really imagine what they were thinking for the Icepick repaint. Weird busy clashy colors. But they look good on the alt. Form.

Searchlight/Choppermaster looks ok. Going seafoam for a rescue copter makes sense, and works but isn't quite different enough to really interest me.


-ZacWilliam, I'd buy the Skyburst set at US prices, but not at what it would cost to import...

The color schemes are definitely a lot more unified among the 5 pack guys. I think everyone is an improvement (or in Bombshock's case, about the same) except for Icepick. His colors are weird, but I do like the detailing.

Okay, just choked when I saw the price listing for the 5-packs. Nearly $63 per 5-pack, and that's with the Amazon.co.jp discount.

I love me some PCCs, but... not those mold-sets, I don't think. Not again, again.
