5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly recommended, 16 April 2015
Delighted with this.

My son's grandfather bought him an official Lego Batman set shortly after I got him this. I was curious to study the difference between the figures - and pleasantly surprised to find that they are virtually indistinguishable. Other than the words Lego printed on the underside of the feet in tiny letters they are almost impossible to tell apart.

And this one is a fraction of the price of the Lego version.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Lego!, 16 April 2015
Terrific item. Easy to assemble and the kids loved it.

My children have tons of Lego - and this is just as good quality. Almost impossible to tell the difference. But it cost a fraction of the price of Lego.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff!, 16 April 2015
Great quality and excellent value. My kids love them!

I don't understand why some people are criticizing them for not being "real lego". They are virtually indistinguishable from lego, and fit totally with lego parts. But they cost a fraction of the price! So what's not to love?

Thoroughly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad and shameful, 29 Dec. 2014
This review is from: KP: The Autobiography (Hardcover)
As a part-time spinner he was an able tosser of the ball.

As a batsman he was capable of brilliance but frustratingly inconsistent.

As a writer he turns out to be the kind of gossipy, poisoned-tongued tell-tale you'd expect to find in a ladies hairdressing salon rather than the dressing room of any professional sport. His self-pitying, self-centred, self-obsessed attitude goes a long way to explaining why he never made the most of his talent on the field

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and easy to operate!, 15 Oct. 2014
The reviewer who says this toy is hard to operate must be referring to a different item! All you do is gently press the dome of the daleks head. No buttons involved and couldn't be simpler.

Great product with superb detail and finish.

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid!, 11 Oct. 2014
Unwatchably poor quality. The worst I have ever seen.

No attempt has even been made to adjust the contrast and brightness, so in some of the films faces are "bleached out". The framing is off, with the tops of heads cut off.

And some films are so marred and scratched that it looks as though it is snowing.

Outrageous to charge people money to watch films in such extremely poor condition.

1.0 out of 5 stars amazingly poor, 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Starts promisingly but goes down hill rapidly as soon as a zombie appears.

Told as a series of vignettes, the film attempts to depict the experiences of apparently disparate groups of survivors. Unfortunately each of them lacks any real plot - they feel like a series of improvisations that quickly run out of ideas.

Poor budget is no defence. The only thing this has in common with The Blair Witch Project is that its cheap and shot hand held (much of it at night). Unfortunately, it lacks the clever plot, strong characters and convincing acting that Blair Witch boasts.

Also has the fundamental flaw that we're supposed to believe each survivor group is accompanied by some idiot who'd rather film his friends being eaten than help fight off the zombies. You might buy the idea of ONE camcorder nerd hellbent on recording the unfolding apocalypse - even up to the point that he'll film his own death instead of defend himself. But half a dozen of them is a bit...hard to swallow.

You really wont believe how poor this film is unless you've seen it!

My children love this story! It's a wonderful tale about a boy who befriends one of Santa's reindeers and embarks on a series of adventures. A heartwarming Christmas classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent book, 3 Dec. 2013
A really enjoyable book that tells an uplifting and illuminating story. This feels like a long-overdue reveal of one of those areas of British history that seems to have been overlooked for far too long. Well done, Pamela Roberts, for doing a splendid job of research in unearthing all this extraordinary information.

The book tells the story of black scholars at Oxford dating back to the mid-19th century and draws on a wealth of archive and pictorial evidence of their experiences. There are some terrific characters and what could have been dry, academic trawl is brought to life with great anecdotes, personal detail and humour.

All in all it's a fascinating and unexpected reassessment of one of the world's most famous educational institutions.
