Revell Model Set Star Wars Millennium Falcon
Revell Model Set Star Wars Millennium Falcon
Offered by Toy&Modelmarketuk
Price: £13.93

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough. Check the size, 22 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent enough model kit for the price, I suppose. Just be aware that the dimensions given in Amazon's product description seem to be including the box rather than the model. Off the sprue the shop itself is probably only 15 cm long.

The level of detail of "greebling" on the model is not too bad. But you will need a fine detail brush and some better range of paints to get a decent paint job. It's fine for me as I hadn't planned to use the paint provided, as I'd rather use my own airbrush paints. I'd recommend going that route too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing series!, 1 July 2016
This animal is incredible. One of the most moving and heart breaking series I've seen. I must own this.

The £40+ price (for only half the story) is super steep though. Hope it comes down before release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid movie, bare bones release., 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved this movie as a kid, so thought I'd upgrade the DVD to bluray.

Since the movie doesn't appear to have been released in the UK yet, this Australian bluray is good enough. The main feature seems to be well transferred but I have to mention that this "20th Anniversary edition" is pretty bare bones. The only bonus features are a theatrical trailer that looks its age (and more) and an "info screen" that is basically one of those screens you normally get when a disc boots that says all opinions on the special features are that of their commenters and don't reflect on Disney as a company. Really pointless when there are no bonus features that these could apply to.

Still a good film, but a lazy release in general. If you just want the movie, it'll do fine.


LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid (75142)
LEGO Star Wars Homing Spider Droid (75142)
Offered by Rightdeals
Price: £64.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't over pay for this set, 7 May 2016
The correct RRP of this set is £34.99, not £79. Please don't overpay from resellers.

The set itself is fairly minimal, the parts are very specific to the build and are almost all grey. Aside from the non-clone-wars Yoda minifig with better looking head piece, the figures included here aren't that special.

At a decent (RRP) price this set is OK. If you are thinking of paying over the odds, you either must really like the homing spider, or are desperate for a Yoda minfig.


Schleich Superman Vs Darkseid Scenery Pack
Schleich Superman Vs Darkseid Scenery Pack
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value two pack, worth it for Darkseid alone., 25 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I buy these Schleich figures to give them custom paint jobs, and this two pack featuring Darkseid and Superman are great for that. The Superman seemed a little rubbery compared to others in this range, but the Darkseid is very solid and detailed. It also has a piece of trans plastic in the head that let's light shine through his red eyes, giving an Omega Beam effect.

The Superman is in his new 52 outfit, and the pose is very dynamic. I recommend immersing in hot water for 10 seconds and slightly re-positioning his cape for maximum dramatic pose. I prefer the pose of this figure compared to the standalone Superman which has its arms folded obscuring the iconic shield design. The pose here is straight out of a comic panel.

I am very happy with this, especially Darkseid, thanks to his texture detail he really steals the show (and is great for custom painting, if you are in to that)

1.0 out of 5 stars Massively over-priced., 31 Jan. 2016
Why so expensive? For a handful of bricks you shouldn't be paying this sort of price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance at reasonable price., 28 Aug. 2015
Performance is excellent when considering it's much cheaper than its equivalent rival. The 8GB VRAM is overkill for current gaming, but invaluable for other productivity applications like video editing. If you don't need the VRAM you could probably get away with a 290 model, but since mine was for a new build, I wanted the extra video memory.
Just make sure if you plan on future cross fire to leave a little headroom with your power supply.


John Dies At The End (BLU RAY) [Blu-ray]
John Dies At The End (BLU RAY) [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Chase Williamson
Offered by bestmediagroup
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The cover is quite misleading, but an enjoyable film., 1 Feb. 2015
I haven't read the book (yet) but I really enjoyed the movie. It had the same feel as the Phantasm movies but with a modern wit that wasn't too clever for its own good. The performances were all very enjoyable and the cast fit perfectly. The story is very Lovecraftian, which suits my tastes. This is not a special effects movie as the bluray cover might lead you to believe, but there are effects. The comedy comes from the cynasim of the dialogue juxtaposed with the extraordinary plot. The non linear nature of the plot lends the movie to multiple viewings. Don't spoil it for yourself by reading a plot synopsis, just jump right in.

This review is from: The Stand (Kindle Edition)
I found The Stand not have a bit of a sag in the middle, but truly epic and epically dark fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super, 5 May 2013
This has got to be one of the most well-balanced fighting games I have ever played. Every character plays well, and you can be pulling of some mad over-the-top moves against more than 20 opponents. As much as I like Street Fighter style beat-em-ups, this was far more enjoyable. Here the story mode has actual substance, there are hundreds of challenges in the STAR labs mode, and dozens of Battle modes and unlockables to find. I haven't played it online yet, and I'm not a massive one for network play, but there is a wealth of things to do offline it will keep you busy for hours. Easily one of my favourite Wii U titles so far.
