I bought Ninja Gaiden II on the 360 when it was first released as it was the cheapest option...massive customs charge later and err :lol: well it wasn't the cheapest option!

Either way I don't mind, I've wanted this figure for absolutely ages :D will have to look into getting a display case. Knowing my luck that'll cost more than the friggin figurine.

Ultra small PC, love it, got a lot of games on it, can hook it up to the tv, surf the net, battery lasts a long time. I got one second hand off ebay in Canada for a half decent price.

Awesome haul!

Ebay?

Ive still got my European Rampage 1991 T-shirt with The Ultimate Warrior on. And it still fits because its stretched over the years.

And also still have my Undertaker foam hand from the 1993 European tour. I was like a dog with 2 dicks when I got that. I remember the day after we went my parents did the big shop and I insisted on wearing it and kids were looking on with envy!

Still got an inflatable Jake The Snake punchbag somewhere, and last week a box arrived in the post containing 33 WWF figures from 1991-ish. One of those "Don't remember bidding on THAT" moments :lol:

I had that punchbag. And my dog dragged it downstairs and burst it.

How much did those figures set you back? Ive got a big back of WWF action figures and didnt know if theyre worth much.

£26, says here.

Less than a pound each then, don't sell them if they're not taking up any space (advice).
