2.0 out of 5 stars Other wise some good, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Some rather dodgy arguments about The Russians preparing an invasion of Germany and Barbarossa just being a preemptive strike in disc 2. Other wise some good pictures

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy, 27 May 2014
Like all LG plasma screen televisions this suffers from a serious design and manufacturing defect that quadruples your power usage and shortens the TV life dramatically.
Whenever there is any electric charge in any of the connector sockets and you put the TV on standby, the TV will go into a strange standby mode where the screen is powered. The only way to exit this mode is to unplug the television.
If you do not notice it has switched from the red light standby to the powered standby your electricity consumption will increase dramatically. If you power off the TV, you shorten the life of critical components like the transformer that are of minimal quality and durability in line with LGs cost saving manufacturing methods.
DO NOT buy these TVs they are a false economy. They are poorly designed, unreliable past the minimum manufacturing garuntee and do not work properly.

3.0 out of 5 stars poorly fitting, 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The most complex and challenging of all the star wars lego models. With my 8 year old it took three days to build as the concentration span required is too much for one session. The design quality of the model is not up to Legos usual high standards. The band of clip together joints that forms the side of the ship (and supports the roof pieces) barely fits and unclips at the slightest touch. This is very annoying for 8 year olds who want to play with their models only to find they fall to bits with the slightest touch. All the other lego star wars large ships and models are fairly robust and stay together well (exception the walker but that is easy to fix). The millennium falcon is a disappointment as a toy because it falls to pieces so easily. This is not such a bad thing as my ex wife then stands on the small pieces and gets very annoyed. Unfortunately this excellent challenge of a model does not live up to its promise as a toy to play with because of the design build fragility.

1.0 out of 5 stars child abuse manual, 29 Nov. 2013
A child abuse manual for feeble minded christians. Children cannot be trained and broken in the same way elephants are. The only book I have been as horrified to read is Commandant at Auschwitz. Sadly, unlike that book, this one has no redeeming features.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 2 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful dissection of the social and political problems facing the UK. As some reviewers have noted it is a little unsophisticated in places, but as an introductory text to raise awareness of the social iniquity of the policies of the last few governments and the social destruction this has entailed there are few better books.


Airfix A01308 Tiger I Tank 1:76 Scale Series 1 Plastic Model Kit
Airfix A01308 Tiger I Tank 1:76 Scale Series 1 Plastic Model Kit
Price: £5.99

4.0 out of 5 stars not bad, good starter kit, 3 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not a bad kit, some of the detail is lacking. A classic airfix kit, not bad mould quality considering the moulds must be 30 + years old. Only had to do a little sanding of the poorly formed edges where seepage had occurred. Turret is fiddly, the panther is a better starter kit for children. As with all these kits, the tracks are annoying to join together, polystyrene cement & superglue will not work on the type of plastic used. Hot screwdriver is needed & you have to go gentle or you will melt a cut in the track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A wonderful antidote to the lasseiz faire, free market ideology that we are constantly bombarded with. To me, the strength of the book lies not in the rather overwrought linking of economic policy with dictatorial regimes and repression but with the mass of evidence presented that extreme free market reforms cause such untold misery to those they are inflicted upon.

2.0 out of 5 stars its ok, 4 Oct. 2010
This review is from: Death Race [DVD] (DVD)
Crap movie but woth watching to see Ian McShane act the socks of the ever wooden Jason Statham. Reminds me of Alan Rickmans wonderful performance making Kevin Costner look as poor as he is in robin hood.

This review is from: Transporter 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The third of a series of thinly disguised adverts for the German car industry. Implausible plots, unrealistic action sequences indeed all you expect from a jason statham movie. If you like that kind of thing, this movie is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Pingu, 2 Jan. 2008
This is the best Pingu DVD. It features the old plasticine animation and well thought scripts before Pigu lost its visual charm (simmilar to the differences in hand painted cell animation of disney versus the new animation techniques). The limitation of the modelling techniques in these pingu eposiodes meant that the scripts are simpler and better thought out.
Importantly my 2 year old keeps returning to this dvd it ranks nearly as highly as the wiggles and Krtko (czech animation check it out).There is also plenty here for adults who will have to watch the dvd 200 times as well!
