Yes!
It's been around for ages .... never went away.
The branding no longer says Cherry Coke though ..... it's a darker red colour can and says Coca-Cola Cherry on it nowadays.

Cherry Coke .... as it used to look like

Okay maybe I won't get one. Though, I have found this which is only £20 inc. P&P and is pretty much what I'd be looking for :D

Chances are I'll get it in the coming months, since it's quite cheap. Doesn't look quite as good quality as yours does, though :/ I do prefer your model to that one.

Figma are good quality and cheapish.

I'm not a fan of the larger models, too much and often don't look right.

A Spider-Man costume with built in foam muscles. Sadly for my son not me, he's only 3 but I had to get him an ages 5-7 and it's still a bit snug on him, he's a monster!

Silent Hill and Highlander on DVD (can't get the f*cking CEX labels off the cases, even WD40 won't shift them)

I'm tempted to buy a new LCD TV, I've completely f*cked ours by cleaning it with Windolene, there's all vertical shadowy smears down the screen. I have no intention of consulting my wife before making this purchase.

Take out the inserts and soak the cases in a bowl of warm soapy water. WD40 is an oil so all it really does is make them greasy. 8)

Exactly what I did when I 'needed' one for the games room. There was some shouting but it was already home by then....totally worth it!. :D
You could try getting some of those screenwipe thingies from a PC/Electricals shop though, they might clean it up OK.

Recently I bought a Joytech Control Centre 540c for all my gaming equipment that uses Component Cables (Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii, PS2). Got it for £8 from CEX online, and it was practically brand new. All the cables and the remote were still in the plastic wrappers. Only the Plug and unit unpacked, which I guess was because CEX tested it to make sure it worked. These normally retail for around £30-£40 so I was well chuffed.

I was even more chuffed that the Nintendo Wii worked with it. There were loads of reports on the net that the Wii doesn't work with it, with the picture being all cocked up and flickery, but for some reason my works fine and has no problems whatsoever, so double bonus there.


I then bought 2 x Belkin 6 Plug Surge Protectors from Ebay for £7.50 each. Not a bad price at all I think, and unfortunatly I'm one of those people who has 4 plus extension in double block sockets which are in 4 plug extensions, so I thought it's time to wise up and give my equipment a little protection for once. I've got next week off, so it's time to rip everything out and tidy all the cables up.


Lastly I bought some cables. I bought a HDMI cable for my PS3/DVD player after getting sick of switching my one HDMI cable between the two. I also got 2 x iPod sync cables and 2 x Sony Camera/PS controller charger cables. On both my partner has lost them, because she's stupid. At the moment I can't use my PS3 because my controller is dead and I have not cable to charge it, because she took the PS3 cable for the Sony camera when she lost the original one, and then went and lost my PS3 cable. Funny thing is that I'm paying to replace the cables! Go figure.
