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

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

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

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

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

The devil is a part-timer!

@  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.

Yeah, me too. I'm gonna see if I can wait on him until TR wave 4 comes, though...

 

Given they're popping up in a couple places (Walgreen's, supposedly), I'm hoping they show up before the end of the month...or at least at a point that I can have them sent in the same box as MP Cheetor.

They are trickling sporadically into Walgreens. Those of us whose Walgreens never got past Brainstorm, never got Brainstorm yet, or don't do toys at all are SOL. I've still never even seen wave 3 in the wild.

Toy Dojo has the wave 4 Deluxes and Broadside, for about $4 more than BBTS usually charges. That was how I got Krok. After being reminded that BBTS didn't offer solo orders for shortpacked figures like Getaway, I figured it wasn't worth the risk. I only buy 2-4 toys per year anyway, I can jump a little higher to actually get what I want.

I wish BBTS would hurry up and get the preorder notices for the Wave 4 deluxes.  I hate going toy hunting at stores since my stores don't seem to restock their shelves and a K-Mart near me is closing making one less place to look.

It's just so WEIRD seeing BBTS legging behind the retail stores. or even being on par with them. Don't they usually get their pre-orders out to customers before the stuff starts saturating normal retail?

Most of the local K-Marts around me are closing as well. Not that I shop there often or will really miss them, but it's kinda sad that that includes the original K-Mart store in Garden City, MI.

Ah, Service Merchandise...  Even though there was (still is) a Toys R Us right near where the SM used to be in my area, I do clearly recall that is where I first saw and learned of G2 as well as later finding Beast Wars (got Iguanus that day).
