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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  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?

Because we have a dedicated HTS thread already, and I figure this is better than cluttering the forum with new threads every time something noteworthy happens in BBTS land.

 

To start with, I just received this e-mail regarding the previously-solicited Rattrap/Tankor/Crosscut preorder:

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 03 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Rattrap, Tankor and Crosscut. They have confirmed that all three figures will be released, but they will be spread over various future assortments. Rattrap and Tankor have been solicited in a new assortment, but Crosscut has been delayed and will be released in a future and currently unknown assortment. Due to this matter we have adjusted all existing preorders for this set of 3 to a set of 2. This new set of 2 will consist of Tankor and Rattrap only, and all existing preorders will receive this set for $31.99 respectively. Please note that the price per figure remains the same as it would for the original set of 3 figures (about $16 per figure). We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause and we are hopeful that everyone will enjoy the new assortment variety.

 

Man, that Skids mold is cursed or something.  First the issues with Wave 1 of this year's Generations, now this.


Interested in getting TFSS 3.0 Carzap, Nacelle, or G2 Starscream for $50 plus shipping?  PM me if so.

And the hits keep on coming:

 

 

Hasbro has just informed us that the Deluxe Wave 05 Case assortment has been cancelled. This case contained Arcee, Chromia, Waspinator and Scoop. They have confirmed that Arcee and Chromia are still going to be released, but have been pushed to a future and currently unknown assortment. We have since been asked to remove the listing from our website until further notice, but your preorder will still remain on file. We truly apologize for this inconvenience.

As always please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns and our Customer Service department (service@bigbadtoystore.com) will be happy to assist you. Thank you for your understanding and support to BigBadToyStore!

I was kind of wondering when exactly they were going to be putting all these figures out, since the AOE Deluxes are explicitly part of the Generations line.

Hopefully this means the lines will actually be released later and not a few slip out so they don't bother to ever have them really hit retail like the previous 3 movies.

Here is the listing for the mentioned set of Rattrap and Tankor. It's $31.99 on my preordered products page, as promised, but $39.99 if you go to order it now, which I guess means they're expecting a worse case assortment than before.

Also as promised, I still have a preorder listed for Arcee and Chromia.

Aw, man, I was more excited for Crosscut than anything else this year. I didn't even bother buying Skids. I really hope he ends up slotted in somewhere...

Yeah I thought Hasbro had gone loco if they thought Generations would continue while AoE was going on.

I actually pre-ordered Chromia and Arcee when the swerve/cosmos scare was going on thinking something like this was going to happen.

My BBTS preorder page for Arcee and Chromia shows "3rd Quarter 2014" now, but that's probably meaningless.

If they do still end up being easily available then this shouldn't be too much of a problem, but without being able to see into the future it is a bit worrying.

Wouldnt it make sense to just save all the molds from these two waves and release them after the movie crap ends? That way they didn't waste all that money on creating these toys for nothing?

The movie lines can felate Omega Supreme's rocket. That is the scale at which they suck for haphazardly causing things like this to happen.
