No. Just pick up mostly vintage Japanese cars. Love Unimogs though.

I nearly bought some yesterday purely because one of them was the Shinobi one, but then I'd end up getting the other four in the series: Jet Set Radio, Space Channel 5, Super Monkey Ball and House of the Dead. Probably still will at some point though.
Would depend on the cars but I’d like those too :D

When I worked in toys, I did a 20 minute presentation on Hot Wheels cars, and regularly used them to take the temperature of the market.

They only came out this year. The show deal made it tempting.

Just a bit lighter, more waterproof and longer battery.

If the first three jokes fell flat, it was a great secondary plan to get the show back on track.

You didn't pay extra for the one with the little door that you can use to "add to the wash", because that's something I've always thought was missing from a washing machine...

Any good (I mean obviously it's A+++, but is it good value for money etc,) we need a new washing machine as our current one leaks all over the floor about 10% of the time it's used!

Josie's been doing about the moon landings at school so I picked up a "Lego" Saturn V for us to make. Really good fun for us to build together and it made a properly good model:

Oh and everything in labelled bags that matched the Lego instructions perfectly, unlike the X-Wing I made where I just had to sort all the pieces as I went along. It also came in less than a week which was unexpected.

Did you end up getting charged any import duty on it? I've only ever ordered cheaper tat from these sites but Aliexpress house the official Pandora's Box store and I've been tempted by a few bits on there.

Changes between length and circumference.

I'm pretty sure this will stay on millimetres forever.... Inches confuse me.

I've got some of those as well, good but I've found that if you don't take the batteries out they'll be flat next time you need them. Also especially if you're going to be cutting something based on the measurement check by sliding them back closed that it returns to zero and not minus numbers as there can be a tendency for the little wheel inside to slip.

Good tips! I've already noticed that the box presses the on/off button so I'll take the batteries out.

I bought the genuine Lego one just over a year ago, it was great fun to build and see it all coming together. It's also surprisingly sturdy and can be played with.

Genuine or not, for a good price it's a cracking build. I think I paid just over 100 AUD and i have no regrets.

Aliexpress. I originally looked at getting the 3 pack of Reflector but instead, opted for a 3 pack of Sharkticons instead. I've got a G1 Sharkticon so I thought they'd go well together.

It was less than £20 for the 3 so you know, not exactly going to break the bank if they turn out to be rubbish.

I'm always a good boy as you well know!

I've got the Constructicons in my old loft too except, I don't have the box for some reason? I remember seeing those in a shop where they must have imported a load of toys so we snapped them up.
