I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

@  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.

@  Paladin : (22 July 2017 - 02:48 PM)

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  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.

So of course they have a GoFundMe now. Those people are scum.

NEW SHIT HAS COME TO LIGHT. Apparently they've been stiffing people who have commissioned them for years, and a lot of their backers from previous Kickstarters haven't gotten their books yet.

Oh boy. This'll probably get worse before it gets better.

 

Practically, yeah, they're pretty scummy.

Ray Dillon seems to have been a very vocal opponent of every Wonder Woman project except their own, so I'm not at all surprised that DC decided the book could go.

They were only asking for $2,000. If it was some inane amount like $50,000 or something I might agree.

 

Losing your job around the Holidays is an awful thing and if you can find enough people to give you enough money to last you through the Holidays then more power to you.

 

The problem is that these 2 have been finding enough people to give them enough money to last them through the holidays for the last decade's worth of holidays! And oh yeah, not doing what they're supposed to be doing to EARN that money in the first place.These 2, particularly Dillon, are NOTORIOUS amongst the original art community, as scammers on the long-term scale. We're talking a DECADE plus of scams. Sure, it's only $40 here, $400 there, but add it all up, and they've been coasting on free money for years and years now. It has to stop. Instead, it's being fueled. AGAIN.

 

EDIT: Internet Jesus' link covered it all quite well. It's an open secret, and has been for many years, so that's why their cries for sympathy were met by many deaf ears. Ears that wanted to be paid or given art they're owed. Only thing IJ got wrong is calling it 'new shit'. Ain't nothing new about it. Nothing new at all.

Yeah, gosh, these dudes have been ripping people off for years. Maybe they don't mean to be horrible scam artists, but they seem to be slack about Not Being That. So. Many unhappy supporters who have been waiting years and years for books they paid for, and which are already available on multiple platforms elsewhere, so why have these people not had their junk fulfilled?

With the information we have now, it's turned into The Stupid Thing DC Did Was Hiring Them In The First Place.

They're declaring a reset after DC's announcement that they'll be making a "diversity" push similar to what Marvel tried and failed at.

That's a bad reset.

I think the point is that they seem to be doing the same thing Marvel did, i.e. a bad-faith "diversity as sales gimmick" with the same set of white male creators.

That I agree with. Any push for inclusion should 100% include creative teams as diverse as said characters.

-ZacWilliam, it being a sales gimmick is not in itself a bad thing. Everything comics does is a sales gimmick, it's a business, and that's fine. But yeah, be authentic in your message/actions/authorial voices.

Thing is, that would require them to finally can Eddie Berganza so that there can be female creators at all levels of the company.

Well, they've done a reset.

DC's coming out with a new story arc that's basically their version of the first Marvel Civil War.

The premise? Nightwing is hired by the government to lead a task force meant to round up all supers, good and bad.
