Got these on the way:

Series 2 of OMFG, little toys designed and funded by the community they're intended for. Great stuff :D

Also:

-Another stack of comics and annuals from last week's visit to Manchester
-Using my HMV vouchers last week, got the complete Thunderbirds, a Doug McClure box set and the Naked Gun trilogy.
My comics blog (mostly lesser-known UK stuff from the 80s and 90s)

Been into building/painting 1/24 scale model cars lately so even though I'm still working on a mid-90's GTR V-Spec Skyline, I bought the R34 Skyline kit today as I fancy that one next. It will be of course be painted in 'Bayside Blue'. Also had to buy a much smaller paintbrush as some of the tiny detailing (such as painting the GTR logo on the grill) is almost terrifying to attempt :lol:

Boring stuff I suppose but hey-ho.

Got a brand-new Kill Bill 2-disc DVD steelbook for £8 today. I'd always wanted a 2-disc version but apparently, this Dutch import (with English language of course) is the only PAL version :? . The steelbook bit is a nice bonus :) . Just need to get hold of the steelbook for Vol.2 now.

Got myself a second hand Musical Fidelity X-A1 stereo amplifier. Want a A3.2 amplifier but out of my price range at the moment but the X-A1 still sounds amazing for its age and what they can be picked up for money wise

AN ipod Classic. Left mine on the roof of my car overnight - it didn't get stolen, but did get filled with rainwater. I think it's safe to say I got my money's worth from it though!
