Today I bought a Stingray mug (25p), a Rescue Rangers VHS (50p), and the new issue of Viz (£3.20!!!).

Nice, I really like the classic line. I don't have any yet but have been toying (no pun intended) with picking a few up.

Aye, it's not often a re release of a figure line lives up to the originals, I've got a Webstor and a Man-E-Faces on the way at some point as well.

Finally spent the Amazon vouchers I've had since Christmas! :lol:
- 3-way SCART adapter so I've no longer got to crouch down and rummage behind the VCR swapping bloody leads around every time I want to switch between DVD, freeview box and Sega Saturn (with the unexpected effect that the latter two are now coming through my amp and speakers - bargain!)
- 16GB USB drive so I can bring a nice big selection of MP3 albums for the work computer
- Stevie Ray Vaughan music DVD

All arrived today and pretty chuffed with that lot :)

When you think you've got problems you don't really need,
They're maybe not as bad as they seem,
Cos in a world full of misery, with hatred and greed,
Your problems are another man's dream.

Too true, I really like the new Mer-man, trap jaw and beast man, Webstor looks great too, these were among my fave's from when I was a kid, I always prefered the mosters to the human figures. I don't think theres many of the new ones that I dont really like to be honest. Its just a shame they are so epensive over here as most were originally only $20 from Mattycollector

I've got a new Trap-Jaw, along with Tri-Klops and Roboto, I'm looking to get the Mer-Man double pack with Aquaman, there's also a Zodac and Green Lantern one I wouldn't mind as well. I never actu8ally had a He-Man when I was a kid, he was far too boring :D

Getting Moss Man for Christmas was my biggest every disappointment.

His special move was that HE SMELT OF PINE.

Still got him, still smells.

I have no sense of smell so I cannot verify if the new version smells of pine either.

If you live in London, then you may be interested to know that the Prince Charles Cinema will be showing the Masters of the Universe movie (which is ace!) next month.

Breaking Bad Season 2. :D :D :D

And three Adidas T-shirts (new w/tags) for a quid a pop. They're a bit chavvy, mind, but couldn't resist.

All of those nice Red Dwarf box sets (as in, the ones with special features, not the ones that are "Just The Shows") - cost me £25 including postage for the lot of them, from Amazon. Red Dwarf marathon on the way :D

Just bought a Stone Island reflective Jacket. see a video of it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mMOCiDy4888

The surface is made up of tiny glass beads so when any light hits it, it reflects really brightly.

Going out in Leeds tonight so can't wait to wear it, just hope I don't trash it.
