I love back to the future and I love Lego,you know what I also love.This Set.Its great If your a back to the future fan and its a great way to get your kids into the film aswell. Being able to make all three cars(though not all at once)is also the great you know what wasn't great...the price.The set is great,the price is stupid,I mean the set itself is £40 for a car with bits to add to it? And the only reason some one would buy it is if they were a fan.But come on! 40 quid!But in any case I would love to see a line of back to the future toys.But Lego you really need to tone down the price.Just a bit

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick with Lego, 17 Aug. 2013

Honestly I liked the idea of a Lego like doctor who and the first waves of doctor who micro-figure were made with excellent quality but sadly the same cannot be said with these "Anniversary" figures as each of them seem to be made of a cheaper noticeable plastic which gives a very dull look and adds no sheen to the figure,I got the second and third Doctor and would have been happier if they didn't look awful.When compared with the old figures these new ones look dull and unfinished(seriously one of the feet on mine was un painted) I recommend you go with either Lego or Earlier Micro-figure waves.I also compared my third Doctor with my new Anniversary Doctor and the hair was a different color as well as the eyes being printed above the eyebrows.I recommend you either Stick with Lego of get the earlier character building figures unless your a die hard whovian and have to get these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a "meh"...(Spoilers alert), 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen,love and own the first season of Once upon a Time.It was clever it was Dark and really made you wonder what was real and what was merely fiction and after season 1 got left on such a great cliffhanger I couldn't wait for season 2.Sadly it did not live up to what I expected. Now that "magic" has entered storybrooke the mystery seems to have vanished. Now theyve woken from the curse most of the storybrooke scenes take place in a small area including the town square,granny s diner, Mary Margaret s house and a few momentary shots of outdoor locations.The season seems to be split into part 1 and part 2. Part 1 where (spoiler alert)certain characters are trapped in another world and they must find a very slow boring way to get out while storybrooke tell pointless story lines which we really didn't need example reds wolf problem (ok it added to her character but didn't give any idea of how they could get back and Dr Frankenstein, again added to his character but really,why would we focus on him when the audience is clearly more interested in Emma)these storys really feel like fillers which add to characters we really don't need to know about for each episode and the moments with Emma and snow in the other place are quite short.But even the short bits with Emma and snow are really...really...boring.All they talk about is true love and the power of love and how love conquers all...fine we get it.Why didn't they stop adding to the pointless characters we don't really need to know about and add more to the relationship between Snow and Emma. Also I have to ask why is it at some points they call themselves by there fairy tale names but at other points there fake personas invented by Regina?,its just weird. And as for effects they are just s@"£ I could take the terrible effects in the first season because any magic preformed was in the fairy tale world which was mostly made of green screen castles plus a few real forests which in its own way worked especially with magic spells.But now that they use the cgi magic in storybrooke it feels like the creators were being really cheap.I have seen better effects made by ametures on YouTube.Now saying this there were some good scenes when the characters go to Manhattan and have to deal with magic withdrawal.But this is just part 1,part 2 starts to pick up the pace and starts to get better but honestly I managed to figure out most of the twists from part 1 just by simple guess work.But as I said part 2 picks up and starts to become interesting.Honestly the first part of the season is so boring and bland but as part 2 comes in to action it feels like there is a flicker of magic left.But please don't take my word for it read other reviews and buy the season if you must but make sure you've seen season 1,because if you don't like the first season your going to hate the second.

3.0 out of 5 stars Silent Hill is worth a look, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its not the best game in the series but heck it tries hard to be.Silent Hill Downpour is a good game,although I did experience drops in frame rate this was the only technical issue I had in in the game.Story wise,its a little confusing at first but as you play through you start to understand what the heck is going on.The Graphics are good...the fighting mechanics are not so great even though the game tries to be scary(which in some cases there are a few jumps)the game creators seem to have shifted to more of a fighting stance.The voice acting is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a Time is Amazing, 7 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love Disney then you will love Once Upon A Time.On her 28th birthday,Emma Swan meets Henry,the son she gave up for adoption 10 years ago.Henry believes Emma is the daughter of snow white and prince charming, prophesied to break a powerful curse.Unconvinced,Emma returns Henry to Storybrooke,where she encounters the enigmatic Mr.Gold and clashes with mayor Regina mills-Henry's adoptive mother who believes that she is the evil queen.

the series is split into two worlds,the real world ,where Emma adventure begins,and the fairy tale world where we see just how the characters we have come to know and love(...and hate) became who they are.The show has many amazing actors,amazing costumes great scenery and effects.Its a show any fan of fairy tales should watch.
