  1. I'll leave this here... https://shop.eaglemoss.com/hero-collector/alien-and-predator/alien-and-predator-xl-starship-collection (also.. BSG Heavy Raptor on sale if you don't have it)
  2. Some the new Eaglemoss XL line... Pre ordered Sulaco and dropship because.. Why not. https://shop.eaglemoss.com/hero-collector/alien-and-predator/alien-and-predator-xl-starship-collection
  3. I think I have a boxed v1 elintseeker but the end of little clip for the radar dish is a bit iffy. Otherwise complete with full sticker sheet
  4. Aoshima fits in a detolf just fine. My antenna is long gone but even with it, there is plenty of clearance.
  5. I think i have a mint, boxed one sitting in storage. I'll check for you.
  6. I certainly don't mind shipping to Canada but be warned, the shipping cost is a tad expensive. It can be anywhere from $35 - $80 Canadian depending on what you were looking for and how quickly you want it. (This is the site I am using as a guideline for shipping.. http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder )
  7. Hey guys, I've been lurking for a long while just to keep a toe dipped in on current events, but I am now sadly forced to sell off a chunk of my collection. (GIrlfriend is moving country to live with me so need to get a proper house and y'know.... stuff that goes in house) I have started putting a few items on ebay today with more coming tomorrow. I have pretty much zero idea what stuff is going for these days (probably shoulda done more research on here) so i just used ebay pricing but a bit cheaper as my guide. Should any of you fine folk wish to purchase anything and want to avoid the feebay thing - feel free to drop me a PM and we'll work someting out. Anyhow... on with the show! Please buy my stuff.... Pleeeeeease...
  8. It definitely has one of the best Hero / Villain relationships ever put to film. Its simply brilliant and at times, side splittingly funny.
  9. Watched a matinee of Prometheus before heading into work for the evening... here is the quick & dirty, *spoiler free* review: It is by no means perfect and does have some pacing issues- I think it could have done with being a good 40 mins longer (here's hoping for an extended directors cut on bluray) however..... I did thoroughly enjoy it. Its beautifully shot and has a wonderful musical score (must look the composer up as i'd never heard of him) with some fine performances from Michael Fassbender and Noomi Rapace I guess, as the message in the film suggests, it all depends on what you go looking for. If you go into this looking for an "Alien" prequel or similar, you will be disappointed. IF you go in looking for a fresh sci-fi epic from one of the masters of cinema, you will, as I have, really enjoy it. Although, the film actually leaves you with more questions than answers One last thing though... damn the trailers for this film. They were so so good and showed far too much. EDIT:spelling
  10. Oh, i was all expecting to roll my eyes and hate this one, and as i said... its not a great film but it is entertaining - and its has the huge bonus of not having 'the beef' in it. So, if you go in with the open mind (of a 10 year old), you'll probably have a good time. -The defense rests your honour/
  11. Having seen this late last week, I can tell you that its not actually that bad. Is it a big overblown hollywood blockbuster from the Michael Bay school of action? Yes. but its not bad and quite entertaining. None of the characters are particularly annoying.. for a change. The way they tied it into the board game was relatively well done (i can remember two particular things that tied nicely) The pacing is pretty good and only slows down in the middle for a few minutes of exposistion. Now to answer some queries: It is not an alternate timeline. There is only 1 battleship in the movie and it had been decomissioned a long time ago... (its gets a little cheesy around this part) Nobody says "you have sunk my battleship" Its nowhere near as bad as the last 2 transformers films (i thought the first transformers was "ok") Gripes? well... it seems that the same couple of main characters carry out just about every duty on board ships... in the CIC, check. Fast boat interception, check. Repelling borders, check. - its like there is only a small handful of crew on board! - you'll know what i mean if you see it. Anyhoo.... go see it. Its really not that bad. Its not "WOW that was BRILLIANT!" but its better that it has a right to be.
  12. Umm... the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. games were based on a film. STALKER Directed by Andrei Tarkovsky who coincidentally directed the original Solaris film. I'm thinking Monsters will be the sleeper/indie sci-fi hit that district 9 was, but i want to see Skyline too although i know it will a Hollywood cheeseball. Lets not forget the third part of this winters sci-fi trifecta - Battle: Los Angeles which doesn't even have a trailer yet.. just a couple of seconds of footage... i'm intrigued.
  13. The pre-release Daft Punk tracks from Tron Legacy are flippin' ace! I'm not so much of an electro/dance fan but i listened to one track "the crash" and about 3.40m into it you can't help but feel that this is perfect accompaniment to Tron. I'm even more hyped about this film now. GO download it!
  14. I don't post very often but felt i had to after seeing this work of art. That is exactly what this is - a work of art. A truly amazing piece and i must admit to getting a little choked reading the praise from all of MW's master modellers. You truly deserve to have this featured in many many magazines. I think every visitor on MW should been MADE to look at this before proceeding any further into the forum :-) Has anyone sent this to Graham yet?
  15. I agree it wasn't the weakest part of the film but right there i should have known.... this will not end well. I also agree with you about Julie Benz - What. The. F*@k. What could have been a great little comeback movie, or even a better than expected straight to dvd movie managed to achieve something that no movie has done to me since Dragon Wars - want to just turn it off.
  16. Considering i quite liked the first movie, i was looking forward to this one. AWFUL AWFUL FILM!!! In the first scenes of the brothers "tooling" up at their farm in Ireland i almost i had to turn it off right there and then. Too much cliched crap.
  17. On the topic of fan films (and since someone mentioned Kevin Rubio's TROOPS.... I take it, or at i least i hope that everyone here has seen I.M.P.S.? If not, you HAVE to check it out! episode 1 is amazing. 2 is good, not a patch on 1. http://www.impstherelentless.com/tek9.asp
  18. Another vote for Gattaca & MOON (which WILL be a sci-fi classic.... damn you oscars, Sam Rockwell would've has that in the bag) and... Dark City. stunning sci-fi
  19. Not sure if this has been posted yet (didn't see it) - LOL AIRLINES The captain’s window is marked with the big cheese (”captain, my captain!”), the co-pilot’s window with co-captain (the other pilot on the PA system) and the jump seat is for wannabe pilots. In addition, the following descriptions of plane parts can be found: * galley (cuppa anyone?) * avionics (fancy navigation stuff) * windows (best view in the world) * wing #1 and #2 * engine #1 and #2 (26 000 pounds of thrust) * emergency exit = throne zone (more leg room baby!) * seats (better than taxi seats) * some windows = kulula fans (the coolest peeps in the world) * black box (which is actually orange) * landing gear (comes standard with supa-fly mags) * back door (no bribery/corruption here) * tail (featuring an awesome logo) * loo (or mile-high club initiation chamber) * rudder (the steering thingy) * stabiliser (the other steering thingy) * a.p.u. (extra power when you need it most) * galley (food, food, food, food…) * boot space * ZS-ZWP (OK-PIK) = secret agent code (aka plane’s registration) * overhead cabins (VIP seating for your hand luggage) * fuel tanks (the go-go juice) * cargo door * aircon ducts (not that kulula needs it… they’re already cool) * front door (our door is always open … unless we’re at 41 000 feet) * cockpit window = sun roof * nose cone (radar, antenna, and a really big dish inside)
