Yet More Parcels? Ooo I say

So, as you can see another two parcels came for me, and once again it's linked to Star Wars Episode 1- The Phantom Menace.
The two podracers, these bring back memories...When i was young me and my cousin used to fly these bad boys around the house, always seeing who would win (Of course he always won, as he always had Sebulba) But, these two podracers, were just magnificant. The detail, the stickers, the things they did.
This eventually came to an end however, when he sold them all off, and I was going through the phase where if you were caught with one "toy" or figure, you were official picked on. But, the other day, thanks to the joys of ebay, I found these two...and for how much?
Well, they were mint in box, no stickers applied and the box was in fantastic nick too...so for all that...only 15 pounds?!!! For two of the most amazing vehicles to come out of TPM line! Insane.
So there is a bit of news on what i recently picked up...it's not overly rare...But if you haven't got these two awesome racers..I think you may wanna go on eBay...cos, these wicked machines are worth the money!

Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace

Ok, so I spent the other day just simply watching episode 1! And isn't it weird how your views can change over the years?

If you had asked me what I thought of Episode 1 when it first came out, I would have looked at you and poked you in the eye! But now, I am starting to like it. I love the podrace, and the fight scenes. I love the way the storyline is fairly simple to follow...

Two jedis try to make peace,

2. they fail,

3. they go help queen

4. Get shot at

5. Break down on random planet

6. Get fixed

7. Go do political crap for half an hour

8. Go home and do some good old fighting

9. Celebrate

Wow, when I put it like that, it doesn't look that simple haha!

But you know what? Who cares? It's Star wars!!!!

So, I watched it, and loved it, nothing new there. There is nothing wrong with that film...bar the hours worth of pointless politics..but that even interested me this time round!

Yes Jar Jar Binks can be annoying..but the film started off a new generation of Star wars fans, and for that, I cannot say it sucks!

If it wasn't for this film, I would still to this day think Star wars was utter trash!

But, you know what I say, just watch it back..right now! Look at it fully, forget what all the critics say, and the people who just want everything to be like the originals! See it like I did, a new lot of films, and I think...no wait, I guarntee...You will love it!

What Came In The Post...

Ok, so for the last week, i have been eagerly awaiting the biggest parcel, I am ever likely to get.
And yesterday, it came, something magnificant, something sleek, something shiny, something...Royal
That's right as you can see by the photo, it's the 1999 Star Wars - Episode 1 Royal Naboo Cruiser.
What a item to own, i must say that I wanted this more than I wanted the new Millenium Falcon, (which is selling for a stupid amount, doesn't stop me wanting one though) and I am glad I did choose this over the MF, because this thing is just simply amazing!
It can either be used a vehicle or a playset, and have loads of sections and moveable parts. I have to say, for an item that came out in 1999, this is probably able to keep up with some of the newer things from Hasbro.
I give this ten out of ten....easily! And so, I shall stop waffling and just let you save the image you see before you, and stare at it, till your eyes burn away!
Ta ra for now!

Toys R Us...magical place?

Ok, so this is the first waffle I want to get off my chest. Toys R us...
"There's a magical place, we're on our way there. With toys in there millions all under one roof"
This is the theme tune to the big toy superstore...however, millions? More like twenties!
I am a regular customer to Toys R Us, and since, well, I would say december, they have had nothing new!
How can a toy store...not have toys?! I feel sorry for the kids these days..no wonder they are all on facebook at the age of 4, there are no toys for them to play with.

I understand that with the financial issues at the moment, they may be having trouble...but when my local Sainsburys is out doing the biggest toy seller...I think it's time to call it quit! Or...merge with Smyths, which seems to have everything before it even comes out...just a shame it takes me ages to get to my local one!

I remember when I was younger, I would go round the corner to my local Toys R Us, and they would have rows of all the amazing things, but now...you walk down one aisle, and just get tumble weed! The aisles used to be filled with tons of glistening pieces of plastic, and there was always a sale on everything possible, however, now, you are lucky if you find a discount on anything in there...I bloody well can't find a discount.

So this was just a little waffle, a little rant, to decide if you actually want to read my future posts...
You will, you know you will...because..

These aren't the droids you looking for!
