    Fantasy Lit recommend

    Might give that a try. I've just finished reading Electric Dreams, a compilation of short stories by Phil K Dick (of Bladerunner fame). These are the original stories used by Channel 4 for the Electric Dreams series. Each story is introduced by the director/producer of each episode. For Sci-Fi written in the 1950s it still has a lot of relevance today.
  2. The Bandai Box series Death Star is now available as is the Death Star/IDS double set
  3. It looks like the limited edition B-Wing does come with Ten Numb and the lighting unit. It is a USA limited edition that was released a week ago, a month before the general release and a quick check on eBay has revealed that you will have to part with around 100 of your British beer tokens to get one.
  4. Rob998, if you just want some basic static lighting for the windows then consider using LED strips and drilling out the holes in the side walls. You can add short lengths of fibre optic to the holes to help the light. i will be doing a kit in the near future but will have flickering engines and will be in the £75-£100 bracket. if you want any help at all just ask. Cheers, Warren
  5. The rocket boosted R2 is due in September but you will have to wait until November if you want R4-I9!

    Couldn't find a thread for the show this Sunday so thought I would throw it out there. http://www.hamex.co.uk/ At the usual place in Hanslope from 9.30am on Sunday 1st July This year celebrating 40 years of Blakes 7 and 50 years of 2001 Plenty of Sci-Fi displays, models and traders and for those that aren't vegan, vegetarian or pork intolerant the bacon butties are great!!
  7. Here's a few pictures. Booster set Does the Trolley Dolly set mean there is a 1/12 Jabba Barge on the way!!!

    Missions - BBC4

    Has anyone else been watching the French Sci-Fi series being run on BBC4 on a Thursday night? It's currently on week 4 of 5 with 2 x 20 min episodes per week. If you don't mind the subtitles its a great series and the twist this week was very good. The spacecraft aren't the most imaginative but look plausible. Cheers, Warren

    SOLO Millennium Falcon?

    Hasbro have done a larger scale 'toy' with fancy lights, sound, rumbling and ejecting panels!

    SOLO Millennium Falcon?

    Bandai are doing a 1/144 scale kit, due next month I think.
  12. The AT-AT stands at about 156mm at 1/144 scale, the B-Wing should be about 235mm high at 1/72 based on 16.9m. There is a stand rather than the base but the LED unit is not listed as part of the kit, it comes with Display Stand, Laser Effect Parts (the silly clear rods!) and 2 types of canopy (clear and unglazed). As for VAT it depends what the seller declares on the customs slip, I've had it both ways. (cue for Mike to come in with a crude comment!! )
  13. Bandai now have the B-Wing officially on their site for an August release. The Death Star kit is also on there and is being sold as a single kit and a double kit with the baby ISD. http://bandai-hobby.net/sw/jp/
  14. JPG Productions do a resin 1/48 TIE Bomber if you have £185 to spare.
  15. Cosmos Models do this set which is just under A4 size, I've got a few sets in the post at the moment which will be going on the store when they arrive.
