Re: Lego X-Bomber

PS: You want one of these for the Moon Base base, lol: https://www.amazon.com/LEGO-Grey-Crater-Plate-Platform/dp/B01571SKOE I think they came out before I was little but there must be millions still floating around. :D Wow. Childhood flashback right between the eyes as soon as I saw that! Just like...

Re: Lego X-Bomber

The little chap looks pleased as punch! Mine's more into mini-planes at the moment, although we did once come up with a multi-pilot robot made up of... well... mini-planes! It has to be said with the likes of the X-Wing sets (which are epic) there are a lot of parts around for this sort of project t...

Re: XCOM game nostalgia - new video by me, unusually!

Thanks, that's useful feedback. It was pretty unplanned. When I first ran Minecraft there was an icon floating around on the new Asus ZenPad. It's an Asus app called Game Genie. It can boost game speed but it also captures video either to live stream or save locally. So when I came across Aliens v H...

XCOM game nostalgia - new video by me, unusually!

So as previously mentioned, I acquired a new tablet over Christmas and went looking for something to play on it. I tripped across what I think is actually quite an old game by Android standards so there are some video reviews of it, but I've done quite a long one using just the tablet during which I...

Re: Thunderbirds Are Go - Season 2 Trailer

Well, the toys are actually pretty decent. The supersize Thunderbird 3 is huge! You can get little tiny diecast toys on stands from places like The Entertainer, they're only a few pounds. I even got a TB 4 from Japan, bizarrely, as I couldn't find one in the local store. Came in a little cardboard b...

Re: Thunderbirds Are Go - Season 2 Trailer

The small one is a big fan, I'm a little behind. He got a big Thunderbird 3 for Christmas that actually produces smoke. Brilliant. Doesn't seem to have sold well though, heavily discounted. It's great though, it's a kids series that doesn't feel like a kids series. Which is great for the more intell...

Re: 2016 - Star Fleet Vinyl

Ouch. I didn't realise they were doing quite such limited runs (presumably that's why they're so expensive). The production quality does look good, I might see if I can get one, I think there was the offer for helping them with reference material... Dai X is going to stand tall, I thought they'd be ...

Re: Tablet?

I did think about the Transformer option, but I've already got an Asus laptop (!) so if I needed to move around the house and be productive I could take that with me - just seems like duplication somehow. The Transformers I'd seen seemed quite expensive, I did think about a Windows tablet but the Su...

Tablet?

It's that time of year, and I'm casting around for a tablet to replace my aging iPad. I'm going over to Android, simply because my phone is, and my iPad dates from an era when Android tablets didn't really exist. My current thinking is the Asus z500m - the PC World spec seems a little off what I've ...
