3.0 out of 5 stars Adverts and poor interface, 14 Jun. 2016

Limited range and defaults to all videos rather than just prime, also shows adverts which really is unacceptable on a paid service. I will likely cancel after trial.

This review is from: Pac-Man Pixel Bricks Model (Toy)
A fantastic model, while the instructions could be a little clearer they become far simpler when you consider them as a layer guide rather than set of rigorous sequential steps.

I really cannot understand all the complaints on this thread, its just not that difficult to build.

Now of only they would release Inky, Pinky and Clyde to go with Blinky and Pac-Man

5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding model perfect for any desk, 14 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ignore the naysayers, this is a superb product that is fun to build, it seems some people struggle with the initial concept that the first two layers are to be built simultaneously (one from the top, then one from the bottom), this creates a solid base to construct the rest of the model. It took my seven year old god-daughter a few minutes to figure this part out then she flew through the rest of the model only slightly behind myself... Paladone are very generous with the spare parts which is why hers now sports a Mohican and my own can do a pretty mean Dr Zoidberg impression.

The ghost is well designed and the tapered effect is interesting, my single quibble would be that on step four you should swap the 2x3 and the 2x4 pieces to increase model stability.

Counting the bits before you start means you can use the spares to improvise or strengthen any part of the model you wish. Again, the instructions are very clear and if you have a floating part then it means you have not followed an earlier instruction (the god-daughter put her lower 4x4 on the outside in step 5, which meant the 2x6 floated, she trouble shot that fairly quickly).

The final model is solid and looks amazing on my desk.

If Paladone decide to release Inky, Pinky and Clyde to complete this set I would be a happy man.

I fantastic way to spend an evening, there were many short stories in WWZ that I would love to see expanded at some point in the future. I'm now looking forward to the motion picture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Its okay but..., 14 May 2013

It seems a good book but the measurements are all given in cups rather than metric, why anyone would measure butter in cups is still a mystery for me.

Hopefully they will release a UK edition one day.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...rather wish there was an abridged version, 31 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed the musical and decided to read through the novel before seeing it again... unusually for me it took a while, the authors habit of going off on a complete tangent for several chapters on aspects of French military history before returning to the main storyline did rather detract from my enjoyment.

I would however still recommend this to any fan of the musical, seeing it again after reading the book gave me a far greater understanding of the characters.

This little device fits in my pocket and has every tool I have ever required to repair my bike in the field (apart from a pump), very robust and easy to disassemble even when wearing gloves in sub-zero temps.

I remember seeing Trainspotting at the cinema many years ago but for some reason never got around to reading the book, this was clearly a mistake and one I am glad to have rectified.

I've read most of them before but it was nice to read the authors summary of his own work and the reasons for writing each piece, it was also interesting to see how the authors work developed from early years onwards.

So its not quite as good as his earlier work but it's still a 5 star novel by any other standard.
