5.0 out of 5 stars Great little fan, 29 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great little fan that has my uncomfortably hot office far more tolerable to work in. The fan is powerful enough to keep you cool, though you shouldn't expect it to have massive range. Mine is kept clipped my desk beside me at all times. It's also really quiet so it doesn't disturb myself or my colleagues.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like the TIE Defender and E-wing it has a great ..., 30 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The StarViper is a weird thing. Just like the TIE Defender and E-wing it has a great stat line with an interesting dial. Unfortunately, it also falls into the same trap as the other two aforementioned 'super' fighters in that it's so damn expensive to field one, though it's not nearly as expensive as the poor Defender.

The S-loop is interesting and can make a big difference in close-range brawls. Xizor is decent - with a swarm around him, he can live for a decently long period of time. Guri is also good, but requires a skilled hand. He has to be at range 1 to steal a focus token, but StarVipers are deceptively fragile with their single shield. You'll want to make liberal use of the S-loop to bring this ship at range 1 behind an enemy to steal their focus.

There is a problem here though, in that the only greens on the dial are straight 1,2,3 and banks at 1. Once you have committed an S-loop, your next movement may be quite predictable as you'll want to shed that stress token.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and fantastic looking repaints, 30 April 2015

There is fantastic value in this box. Z-95s are always useful, even as filler for a list. The Y-wing pilots are pretty damn good too, and the illicit upgrades add a unique twist for the Scum faction.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this little ship so much, 30 April 2015
I love this little ship so much. I have 3 already and considering buying 2 more. I won't comment on the contents or quality since another reviewer has done so already, but I will say that this product continues FFGs record of excellence.

The ship itself is cheap as chips to field, so it's great for swarms. It may appear weak, but the greatest asset of this ship is its versatility. The illicit slot is very interesting - if you have bought other scum ships then you'll have some one-shot illicit upgrades that can make this little guy wildly unpredictable.

For 2 points you get the 'Heavy Scyk' title that allows for a cannon, missile or torpedo upgrade. There is already a good range of cannons and ordnance to use, but notably the Scyk performs well with cannons. Have these guys skit around the edge of the battle unleashing long-range salvos from a heavy laser cannon or mangler and revel in delight when your opponent is shredded due to their underestimation of this ship.

It's a cable, not much to say except it's well-made and performs as expected. Used it to output video from my late 2008 Macbook Pro to a 24" monitor, no resolution drop. Well worth the purchase.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would like to pretend that I got this as a gift for someone, or that I have a small child, but the truth is I'm a 29 year old Lego fan and I bought it for myself. The ship is big and beautiful and still has pride of place in the living room on a bookshelf. It took around 3 hours to casually construct the ship and it doesn't disappoint, I enjoyed every minute. I'm not a big fan of the minifigure designs but they are constructed very well. The sails are of good quality and the colours haven't faded in the 1.5 years I've had the ship.

All the old boys at the camp site seem very proud of this or that flashflight. It was worth the cost of admission just to see their faces when I whipped this product out and illuminated the woods all around us like daybreak. Very good product, excellent battery life!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice but wears out quickly, 21 Jan. 2014

This keychain combines two of my favourite things so I was very happy with it! The problem is that the features wear off very quickly! Only after a couple of months of carrying my keys around in my pockets and the figure has been reduced to clear red & blue with no markings. Poor Spidey!

This review is from: How to Bake (Hardcover)
I've had this book for a while now and I have to say it's fantastic! Some of the recipes are difficult because they require good technique - especially with the layered Danish pastries. The brilliance of this book is that Paul describes the techniques required for several recipes in the preface of each chapter, giving tips from his personal experience.

The recipes are very clear to follow - which is an amusing comment as you' think this would be true of any recipe book. I can tell you from experience that some books are hilariously bad at detailing precise steps, or leave out vital details. The most important thing for me is that every recipe has an image associated with it - and I'm very glad to report that this book does exactly that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining toy, 21 Jan. 2014

This review is from: CatIt Senses Play Circuit (Misc.)
My two little kittens love this! Don't expect them to play with it all the time, but leave it out and you'll notice it gets used often - on the cat's own terms, of course. Really sweet watching two kittens play together.
