I'm also based in Oz.  It's very difficult to get these types of items.

However, somehow...my PR Mark 1 Lawgiver got through customs back in the day. :)

I had a Stormtrooper E-11 resin kit blaster seized because it was based on a Sterling SMG.  They also weren't keen on a Han Solo DL-44 resin kit blaster that I ordered - because it was based on a real-life Mauser.  I finally got my hands on them by applying for a special permit.

Wait until you get to Season 2, TordelBack - your notebook is going to get a real working out. :)

Found myself hitting the PAUSE button on the remote more than once trying to figure out who-was-who in my mind! :)

I've just finished watching both seasons of 'Dark' on NETFLIX - a German 'time-travel shenanigans' series. 

I've had a quick look through previous pages of this thread, but couldn't find any reviews - there's probably one in there somewhere?

I avoided the dodgy English dub - and watched it with the original German audio and English sub-titles.

It's not perfect - but it damn near held my interest for all 18 episodes of Seasons 1 and 2.  Apparently there's a third season in the works.

It's beautifully filmed as well.  Having lived my entire life in Australia/NZ, I always enjoy seeing euro-fashion/design, etc.  It also has a cracking sound-track.

Hopefully it will see a release on bluray at some point (not sure if that happens with NETFLIX releases or not).

Apologies - it's taken me a while to get around to replying...

Thanks Leigh - ah, the elusive original release of 'Saves The World'.  I'm after one of those.  Let me know if you ever want to sell. :)

And no - I haven't seen a physical copy of 'Horror City' either.  Can't find any images of the box-art on google.

"I didn't consider the three Dan Dare games because they're obviously (original) Eagle Dan, not Tooth Dare."

Yeah, I agree - but they're kinda 2000AD related, so I've included them in my collection. :)

Glad you like your boxed games, Malcolm. :)

I've posted these images elsewhere, but here's my collection of 2000AD-related titles...the majority of which are for the C64 (which I still power up every now and then).  The only exception being Strontium Dog 'The Killing', which was exclusively for the Spectrum.

All are 8-bit...with the exception of the AMIGA Rogue Trooper title - which is 16-bit (but still lovingly retro!).  It's the only title in my collection that is on disk.

Now for some 'home-made' oddities...the 'Judge Death' title is in fact the game 'Horror City' that was released in 1989.  You can learn more here...


An advertisement for the 'Judge Death' game was published - which I used for the cassette cover.  Inside the cassette box is a USB stick with the game/emulator. :)

The other three games were all created/released by Malcolm Kirk - a member of this very forum.

The hardest part - tracking down vintage cassette boxes!  You can't even find them in second-hand stores any more! :)

Wow - I had the same understanding that this book had never been physically printed.  I've collected all of the 2000AD novels - and this was the only one outstanding.

I've now got an issue on the way as well!

Thanks for the heads-up! :)

Ah!  Excellent, thanks for explaining that.  I shall be patient until the 19th of June. :)

Is this special available for purchase from the online shop?  I’ve been looking on and off - but can’t find it?  If someone could post a link - that would be great!  I’m just after this issue - not the bundle.

I always thought that Paul Darrow would have made a great Sherlock Holmes - he had a similar intensity/quirkiness - much like Jeremy Brett.

I'm a big fan of 'Outside' - very underrated album - and a great return to form.

Well, that was rather enjoyable. :)

The quality of TV these days is pretty damn good.

In relation to the Night King’s intentions when he and his army eventually reached the wall...perhaps he ‘knew’ that he would somehow get his hands on a dragon?  If Bran has the ability to see beyond present time - perhaps the Night King has (had) similar skills?  He certainly came prepared with that whopping great chain used to pull the dead dragon out of that icy lake. 🙂

I missed the 'modify post' window of opportunity.  ;)

I'm wondering whether a certain Bravosi swordsman might show up in the last three episodes.  He wasn't seen to die on screen - nor was there any specific description of his death in the book.

Very much enjoyed it.  It's not often that a TV show can get my heart racing.  My wife was beside herself. :)

I agree with Joe - I would have liked to have seen some of the battle fought after dawn.  Being based entirely in the black of night didn't quite have the same effect as 'Hardhome' and/or 'Battle Of The Bastards' did.  But that's a small quibble.

Would have been kinda cool to see the White Walker 'Generals' get involved in a sword-fight or two - but I guess they had the wights fighting for them.

Love the fact that there's essentially still three more GOT 'movies' to watch over the next three weeks. :)

Would like to see a nod of the head to ‘Toast of London’...

TYLER (on the intercom): “Captain Pike, it’s Ash Tyler...can you hear me?”

PIKE: “Yes...I can hear you Ash Tyler.”
