Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

Had to get to the door before my wife today I as to avoid and other ‘what have you bought now’ conversation 😶

Re: HasLab Razor Crest

So - unlock 3 is now secure and it looks like 2 more unlock targets have been put up....... Curious - only 12 days to go so chances of passing both are slim i would have thought, guess it depends on what they are....

Re: The Listening Post.

Yeah - double IP hit though. Monopoly and SW has always been expensive.

I think the last two games were only £20 so this is a big jump.... But once your in for all of it, you can't not get this - That's how they get you :D

Re: The LEGO Corner

I am so getting the batwing, but with no giveaway i am trying to hold off. There are two great looking freebies (which i know is an oxymoron) coming, One Harry Potter and One Charles Dickens, so going to try to hold on until one of those is up and go for it then. Same for the At-AT, wait for a good ...

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

The amazon packaging was rubbish, both figures shoved into a standard thin card shipping sleeve that they use for books.

Re: Latest Modern Acquisitions

The pulsecon items are in

I would focus on getting wha...
