I also remember:
Grail Quest (Aimed at a younger age group than FF, but quite humorous and fun)
Skyfall (Very cool fantasy world that turned out to be a space colony gone wrong - it used coin flips instead of dice)
Forbidden Gateway (Cthulhu-esque gamebooks, sadly only two in the series)

Oh, and Sorcery, which was FF adjacent and set over four books.

Necroposting, but not sure where else to put this…

Not much love for Hawkeye on here…? It's been great, and the end-of-episode reveal for Ep5? It's kind of been teased, but… woah. That made me unfeasibly happy.

Yeah, I was bouncing up and down in my seat when that got revealed :)

I've watched all 4 seasons of Camp Cretaceous and really enjoyed them - the kids can be annoying at times, but that's because they're kids, and I'm (mostly) an adult.

Haven't had a prog (or indeed, any post) for three weeks now...

Well that sucks. What happened?

Just seems to be the post office being crap in Oxford at the moment - they changed all the posties routes (So I don't get my old postie anymore, which is a shame as he was really good), plus lots of staff sickness. I did see a postman out today, but nothing through the letterbox :(

Did nobody get this over the weekend? Mine rocked up this morning.

If "Trollocks" isn't adopted soon as a swear word, then I don't know what has gone wrong with the world.  :D

I'm hoping it's just a setup for a "Never mind the Trollocks!" line later...

Kurt Busiek is returning to his creator owned work at Image and that means

"plus new collected editions that will make the entire Astro City backlist available again."

Good thing I've just made some space on my bookshelves for more Graphic Novels...

I loved it.

I rewatched it for the 4th time at the weekend and still think it's great.

I think twice is enough for now.
One thing I agree with Sharky here. And that is the question in whether these vaccines do the job (some obviously didn't), which is pretty a valid question.

All you have to do is look at the deaths:cases ratio - we're experiencing the same number of cases at the moment as we did just before Christmas last year (so pre-vaccine roll out), but we're seeing an 80% drop in fatalities. I'd say the vaccines are working.

I'll enjoy watching the remake hopefully but I reckon I'll leave OG Candyman for another 10-20 years.

The 2021 film is a sequel to the original, y'know. The main character is the baby from the original.

That's a pretty big spoiler :(

One of the advantages of the banking Apps I have on my phone is that I can use them to freeze my card instantly in the case it gets nicked.

more boring nostaliga. the cartoon was shit.

BoTP was great at the time - I loved it. It doesn't hold up very well, although the vehicle and mecha designs are still great.

Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (The Original Anime) is great fun though - mainly because it got rid of all that 7 Zark 7 bollocks that was needed to explain all the fight scenes that they cut out because they were 'too violent' for 70s kids - and to be fair there were a few that would have been. Some were a bit bloody, and Jason could be a bit sadistic when fighting. Plus they had to ditch the plotlines of Zoltar being able to switch genders, and one of the team gets killed off.

If they make the live-action more like Gatchaman, it could be good fun :)

Have ordered this beauty from HLJ: https://www.hlj.com/1-72-scale-zoids-red-horn-kbyzd030r

Won't be the same as the old motorized 80's version, but looks like a fun build.

I'll have to dig out my original (I doubt the electrics would still work though).  Also have Zoidzilla somewhere.  My favourite one is probably still my first though - the clockwork Spiderzoid.

They're probably OK, unless you left a battery in there :) I've got a few of the originals, but got a pile of Zoids from the early 2000s re-release, with some nice colour variants (Black redhorn, Blue Krark etc.)
