Yeah, shame.

I went around with my Blake's 7 Liberator model and stabbed everyone with that as a kid instead. No safety bar on that!

Yeah, but the Liberator had 3 plastic pointy bits - they eventually bent! The Buck Rogers one caused REAL pain on my big brother when the safety bar was removed :lol:

The Starfury in Babylon 5. Basically a space version of the Harrier. Despite being more maouvreable than any other race's ships they still ended up getting beaten by just about everything.

Anyone been on that Starship Dimensions website thing? You get to compare hundreds of spaceships with one another. Internet Explorer users (any of those left?) get to drag them around as well, probably making "NNYEEOWWW" noises as they go.
