Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Series Vance Astro Figure, 6-Inch
Guardians of the Galaxy Marvel Legends Series Vance Astro Figure, 6-Inch
Price: £25.49

4.0 out of 5 stars Oh Amazon.., 26 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Another entry into the larger Marvel Legends -- part of the Guardians of the Galaxy sub-series, in fact -- this toy set comprises of a Vance Astro figure and a leg to the composite toy that can be made from individual body parts included in the various toys of the series (a good way to entice fans into buying more toys from the collection). Alas, I can't properly review it as Amazon sent me the Darkhawk figure instead. For what its worth this toy, with its spreadable wings and sleeker design, is more appealing to kids and casual collectors who may not necessarily follow the GotG series. It comes with a disembodied head, too, so what's not to like?


Spider-Man 6-Inch Marvel Legends Series Goblin Figure
Spider-Man 6-Inch Marvel Legends Series Goblin Figure
Price: £26.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine figure defined by tradition, 13 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Part of the Spider-Man chapter (specifically the Sandman BAF Series launched in 2017, if my research is correct) of the larger Marvel Legends collection, this 6-inch Green Goblin figure is largely an exercise in tradition. Adults who had Marvel toys in their youth will recognise the traditional mechanics of the figure -- hinged joints and twistable digits -- as well as the traditional portrayal of the Green Goblin that's endured in popularity despite its modernized portrayal in the cinematic Spider-Man franchise. In terms of design, it's a pretty handsome figure, necessarily completed by the inclusion of a little pumpkin bomb that's an inseparable aspect of the character (so much so that the Spider-Man film, while trying to avoid the general silliness of the comics, had to include them). As with other sub-divisions of the Marvel Legends series, this line entices you to buy the remainder of the collection by jumbling each figure together with a disembodied part of a larger whole. In the case of this Spider-Man line, fans who part with enough cash to complete the collection can assemble an imposing Sandman figure. To this end, the Green Goblin comes with a pair of cool Sandman heads, and they're likely impressive enough to entice Marvel aficionados into gathering the other toys in the line. In any case, this is a fine figure, be it for a collector or a superhero-mad child.

Price: £4.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Effective, 8 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
During a summer when fruit flies seem to have converged upon my flat en masse, these decorative, virtually inconspicuous fly killers lightened the load considerably. The window ledge below checkered with the worlds most despicable insects within the first couple of days, it certainly seemed to an excellent, unassuming job, although its effectiveness means it's fit for replacement within a handful of weeks. If you're being bombarded with flies, you'll find the 12-week prediction on the casing is wildly ambitious. As a side note I didn't notice an excess of large flies falling victim to the window flower's charms, so maybe there's a shortcoming there that you don't find with the altogether more unsightly flystrips.


The Student's Manga Cookbook
The Student's Manga Cookbook
by Cara Frost-Sharratt
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.98

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent, rudimentary cooking guide for youngsters, 8 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The student's manga cookbook is, somewhat predictably, an assortment of fairly rudimentary recipes throughout which a couple of anime-style characters guide the reader. Coupled with the walkthroughs and cutesy speech bubble delivery are sporadic tips on the basics of food preparation and ingredient info, all of which adds up to a hand-holding style exercise that seems more fit for a young teen just getting into the kitchen rather than a cash-strapped teen trying to make the best of what's in their cupboard (although the ingredients checklist for the simple recipes are as appropriate as you could expect from a cookbook attempting to move students beyond simply throwing all their fridge contents into a pan). It's a nice enough beginners guide but not a keeper by any stretch.


Igenix IGPK16 Kitchen Set, Kettle, 2 Slice Toaster and Microwave - White
Igenix IGPK16 Kitchen Set, Kettle, 2 Slice Toaster and Microwave - White
Price: £98.69

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely designed, reliable products, 8 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've had this set for a few months now and am fairly satisfied with it, replacing my worn-out microwave, toaster and kettle with a homogenous set that combines rounded designs with functionality. Although not the most complete products (they're a bit on the small side) they've functioned without any problems and are fairly easy to maintain thanks to the thoughtful design. If you're wanting a matching set of appliances for your kitchen then this gets the job done for a fairly decent price.

Price: £19.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Great assortment, 8 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great collection of post-it notes, sorted by size and colour. Inevitably they aren't built for endurance and start to fall to the floor after so many weeks, but for the volume you get in the set they perform as expected and you'll find them knocking about for months in any case.

Maybelline LIP CS Vivid Matte 20 Coral Courage
Offered by catherinesss3
Price: £3.45

4.0 out of 5 stars Striking and Long-Lasting, 29 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this product for the girlfriend, who loves the bright pink colour. As a matte lipstick it also lasts very well and retains its striking look for hours, although due to this its probably best recommended for people who would wear bright clothing, or else it might seem a bit too bold. Only flaw she described is the awkward shape of the brush, leading to an awkward application. Overall, it's recommended, and she wouldn't hesitate to buy it again.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A hardy, spacious and easily cleaned pan that can handle everything from stir frying to roasting without problems. Metallic design makes it suitable for both hob and oven, making it one of the more manoeuvrable items in my kitchen. Can't fault it.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An excellent litter deodoriser that effectively eliminates odor emanating from the litter tray, meaning you can get more time out of it than you otherwise would. Lasts for numerous re-applications. Will definitely be returning to it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful, with issues, 25 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At 25cm, these scissors are pretty useful for anyone who needs to cut lengths of parcel paper for postage of items and I would imagine due to their length, that they'd be useful for arts and crafts purposes. However, the design doesn't bode well for long-term use; straight out of the wrapping and the blades were already stiff, so if you aren't keen on greasing up your scissors on a regular basis, you can likely find more fluidly designed scissors elsewhere.
