Blade Runner Ultimate Collectors Edition

Thursday, January 29, 2009

One of my favorite films is Blade Runner. This DVD set is really kwel, it comes on five discs and includes heaps of extras. Also included in the collectable tin are art cards, a letter from Ridley Scott and a film clip lenticular. But most important are all the versions of the film itself, the five discs line up as follows.....

Disc 1: 2007 Final Cut Version of the film.
Disc 2: Dangerous Days: Making of Blade Runner.
Disc 3: 1982 Theatrical &
International Version & 1992 Director's Cut

I love this, its kind of like one of those motivational posters that you see, but at least this one doesn't make me want to rip it off the wall and smash it! Its a pretty Kwel Spiderman LED picture with that great saying.....

“With great power comes great responsibility.”

Doctor Who Goodies

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

Found this today, I seen a Dalek and that was enough for me to pick it up.

Doctor Who Dalek

So what is it..... Its a Dalek from Doctor Who, a dalek bubble bath, which I did not realize at the time. It is pretty cool with some nice detail and with a custom paint job it will be a great display piece.

On the note of Doctor Who, I seen this ad today on the television for The Doctor Who DVD Files. Its a partwork publication that will suck all your money away for the next year or so and I am a sucker for partworks (more on that in a future post), I shall try to resist, but that first issue at the low price just kind of grabs you.
Check out the video below for the TV ad.

Are you a sucker for Doctor Who or partworks. Post in the comments and share the guilty pleasure.


Cheap Plastic Airplane Kits

Saturday, January 10, 2009

I picked these plastic airplane kits today by Starfix. Found them in a cheap Euro store at twenty five cent each. They are mixed between 1:48 and 1:72 scale. I grabbed one of each of the following.....

kwel construction kits

  • Northrop T-38 Talon
  • Supermarine Spitfire F.MK.21
  • North American P-51D Mustang
  • Messerschmitt BF 109G
  • Douglas A-4F Skyhawk
  • Spitfire MK IX
  • Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero-Sen
  • Messerschmitt BF 109E

Not bad at all, even though the Starfix kits are not known for their accuracy or detail, but at two Euro for eight model airplanes it was a Kwel find. I’m sure I will have a bit of fun putting these together as it has been quite a while since I have built any plastic models like this.

Have you built any kits like this or found a cheap kit that you just had to buy because of the price. Post in the comments and share the goodness.


Starfleet On DVD

Sunday, January 4, 2009

Yes its coming to DVDat last, on the 19th January. I never thought I would see this be released officially on DVD, but it is.....Wahey!

Starfleet is a Japanese puppet science fiction show that was dubbed into English for the UK television broadcast, it was originally called X Bomber in Japan. The show drew on influences such as Star Wars, Japanese Anime and Gerry Anderson's various puppet shows.....

The DVD set will contain all 24 episodes, remastered, and restored. It is available to preorder from Amazon

Here is the plot outline taken from Wikipedia.
The year is 2999 and the Earth is at peace following the Space Wars. The safety of the human race is ensured by Earth Defense Force (EDF). Shortly before the turn of the fourth millennium, the peace is broken by the appearance of a gigantic alien battle cruiser. Powerless to defend itself, the EDF's Pluto base is completely destroyed and the evil Bloody Mary (Commander Makara in the English dub) reveals that the same fate awaits the Earth unless the mysterious F-Zero-One is handed over to her.

Unaware of the nature of F-Zero-One and fearing retribution, the EDF presses into action an untested, incomplete weapon, codenamed X-Project, from its hidden moon-base. The X-Project is revealed to be a powerfully-armed spacecraft named X-Bomber.

The series then follows the adventures of the crew of the X-Bomber, namely Doctor Benn, Shiro Ginga (Shiro Hagen in the dub), Bongo Heracles (Barry Hercules in the dub) and Bigman Lee (John Lee in the dub), who are joined by PPA (Perfectly Programmed Android), Lamia and her Wookie-like guardian Kirara. They set off to discover the nature of the F-Zero-One and try to protect it from the increasingly desperate and unstable Bloody Mary (Makara) and her demanding overlord, the Imperial Master.

I have fond memories of this show as a kid, it was on every Saturday morning in the early eighties and was the reason to get up early on a Saturday. The Theme tune was a classic, so much so Brian May of Queen covered it with Eddie Van Halen. Just check out the videos to see how Kwel , this show is. This DVD is going to be top of my list to relive those fond memories I have of children's Saturday morning television.

What fond mermories do you have of childhood Saturday morning television ? Post in the comments and share.
