Pretty easy if you've all heard of the subject matter (which I'm sure 99.9999% of you have)

Second:
Abrahams, Panzer, Tiger. I am what?

Third:
The LAST of his kind, he moves without sound and kills in the blink of an eye :wink:

1 point a piece or, if all three solved, 5 points (must be solved at the same time and in same post)
And........GO! :D
Guess from me but one of these may be definitely wrong :lol:

Tank
Blade Runner
Rambo

I'm going to add an additional hint to this.

Thunder Jaws
If this is correct then the first clue was well obscure.
Most of the clues left at the mo are too obscure. I will be posting some doable clues later.
But if I'm the only dude doing clues that are achievable I won't be participating much longer.
Mayhem is correct!

Sorry if that was too obscure, Gman. I thought the Bond villain reference would point people in the right direction.

Ok, a few (hopefully) easier clues from me:

1:
You must do what this wizard tells you, but only if he mentions his name.

2:
The story of Shakespeare's nickname.

3:
With a flick of this, somebody dies.

Two are correct. One isn't. 2 points only, I'm afraid. Good work though. And I like your thinking on the last one.

@Ferret oxide:

Is 1: Simon and 3: A light switch (as you can probably tell, I have no idea of this one :D :lol: )

No to both, but you're close in both cases (yes, even your answer to clue 3!).

1 and 2 are correct. 3 isn't. Think even more literally to solve that clue

Am I being too obscure still?

Aw, bugger. The first one was actually a complete guess. The third was a joke answer!!
