1.0 out of 5 stars Great concept, terrible product, 28 Jun 2014
Having wanted a garden pizza oven for sometime this seemed the ideal solution as it is no bigger than a standard barbecue and can also double up as a chiminea and an additional barbecue, with the advantage of being moveable so it could be stored overwinter.
The product was meant as a birthday present for me so I was exited when it arrived, I opened the box and started to check the parts, first out was the chimney it had a huge scratch but I could have let that go as It was fixable, the pizza stone was shattered but the manufacturer had at least carefully stacked the pieces together and wrapped them tightly.the body of the oven itself has four hinge brackets one was bent even though protected by polystyrene another had lost one of the two rivets holding it on and as that would have held the door to the fire it seemed quite dangerous to use substandard fittings there.
I didn't get any further with construction as I felt the whole thing was a lost cause and have asked for a refund.
I think with some major revisions this product may be fit for purpose but I worry about safety if the build quality is so poor and the packaging and sending of broken parts deliberately is very naughty, shame on you La Hacienda.

As an addition to a costume this is excellent, looks the part and seems well made, can't recommend enough for any fancy dress party.

A good if complex payoff for the preceding seasons, somewhat hard to follow if you are not up to speed on all the relevant episodes but why are you buying the final season if you haven't watched the others anyway?
Excellent value and well worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job with minor reservations, 23 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A decent fancy dress costume, but not ready to wear straight from the packet, reasonable quality, the usual problem of creasing dealt with by damping very gently ( not very colourfast) and hanging, would not attempt to iron as synthetic and fragile, looks the business with appropriate accessories which are not included in the pack. The cape needs Velcro or similar to stay in place and although the costume is large, the belt is no more than a 34 inch waist, this can be fixed with a bit of elastic and some nifty stitching, so why four stars.? Well you look like elvis and black is better than a run of the mill white jumpsuit, and the overall quality of material for the price is very good. A lot of fun for the money, ah thank you verra much.

Ideal for padawans everywhere, a cuddly mentor to keep the dark side away.
Good quality, apparently impossible to put down,
Only regret was this was a present and had to give him away.

5.0 out of 5 stars About time, 28 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having been an early adopter of WiiU I have been waiting for a game to get my teeth into, this is most definitely is the one. Yes it is a late port and has appeared on other consoles I don't really care about that it is the only version I have played and will judge it purely on that basis.
Pros
I like an immersive single player experience, tactical gameplay and a smooth learning curve, SniperV2 delivers on these counts. The gamepad is used nicely and is effective for the management of inventory with the additional bonus of off screen play. The game is heavy on the gore so not suitable for kids.
Graphically more than adequate and the audio cues are not too annoying ( don't be fooled if the "enemy present" music disappears they may not have).
The game delivers exactly what it says and I have issues putting it down, always a sign of a cracker, the value is excellent and having been totally under hyped I recommend a look if shooting nazis from a safe distance is your thing.
I cite the lack of multiplayer and online features a pro as I think sometimes it is nice to just have a bit of mindless fun without having to interact and there is the possibility of downloadable content if there is enough interest.
Cons
Can't find any yet

To sum a great game that in my opinion stands up with goldeneye(n64) as one of the finest first person shooters to grace a Nintendo console.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haloween Fun, 16 Jun 2011
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Easy to use,looks suitably spooky, but be aware the mist soon condenses back into water so keep away from other electrical items and I would recommend a water resistant surface to place it on. Good fun, good value no Haloween party shoud be without one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and quirky, 16 Jun 2011
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I have exclusivley collected lego for over 30 years since I was a child but this TARDIS playset has made me smile in way I have not for a long time. I am not one of those collectors who buys the kits and leaves them boxed the pleasure has always been in the construction and this kit, small and bijou though it is delivers. Character Building may be a new venture in the construction toy world but their execution of this kit really promises great things, ok so the finished article has a low 'swooshability' factor with a fiddly door arrangement and some build instability but just having a buildable TARDIS,11th Doctor figure and even Amy Pond is truly fantastic. I for one cannot wait for the larger TARDIS interior kit and the 11 Doctors collection later in the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice gizmo shame about the price, 16 Jun 2011
A useful gadget for parties and small gatherings, makes some noise but that is part of its charm for me but was dismayed when I followed the confirmation link to the sellers site todownload the instruction booklet I felt a bit ripped off. still a good purchase but feel a bit miffed.
