  1. It was referred to as Slave 1 in the 1980 novelisation too, it seems strange that Disney should get squeamish about the name when actual slavery features in the films. Although it may just be for toy packaging that the name change applies, rather than trying to erase it completely.

    Just finished Toradora! On Netflix, it's another high school, comedy romance but i really enjoyed it! plus it does actually have a resolution at the end.
  3. Went to my first boot of the year last Sunday! It was a fair size but very little gaming stuff, hardly any 360 or PS3 stuff even. I did pick up a load of Star Wars Disney Infinity figures for a tenner, and Cod WW2 for £2, so at least I got something.
  4. In the original Macross music was a used to induce massive culture shock into the enemy who were a race of cloned soldiers who knew nothing but warfare. When they heard music for the first time it overwhelmed their senses. it then got expanded on from that for subsequent series, to various degrees, but it isn’t Macross without transforming fighters and idol singers. Anyway be careful or cacophonous will turn up and tell everyone they are wrong.
  5. 3 QLs just got sold on a Spectrum Facebook group I’m on. A Boxed one in prestine condition went for £250, one that was tested and working with a few extra bits went for £150, and an unboxed one with no leads or extras went for £80 I think they were all snapped up right away.
  6. Amazingly it’s 26 years since the Street Fighter the movie so Fennic Shand should look like this.
  7. Still works, I stacked up 3 years of gold, then upgraded to ultimate for the 10.99 yesterday!
  8. Midnight Resistance is the sequel to Heavy Barrel and also by Data East, Vapour Trail, Wolf Fang and Skull Fang are a trilogy set in the same universe.
  9. I recently got the Pandora King of Air 2, which is designed for vertical monitors. I’m impressed with it so far! It’s 516 games about half of which are from the early 80s, which I guess when vertical monitors were standard, the rest are shooters from the mid 80s through to early 90s. The games are in no order at all but you can select 99 favourites which are then listed first. I had no trouble filling this list up. There is an autofire option when a game boots which is really handy and you can save state to keep high scores if you want to. As mines is in a cocktail cab I was really pleased to find a cocktail option, this switches compatible games to cocktail mode. There is a 2p head to head space invaders I’ve not seen before that I look forward to playing. You can add games apparently, but the instructions are very vague so I haven’t tried this yet. Overall this is doing more than expected, so very pleased with it. Definitely worth a look if you have a vertical cab.
  10. At a big boot You might see a few beat up figures, but finding big lots or good condition stuff is getting pretty rare. I will be keeping an eye out for them this year though!
  11. I’ve not been able to get into a single online match so far on this, the one time I was able to connect I fell through the floor and disappeared out of the map. Last night I was constantly getting server disconnects in single player. if I had paid £60 I would be looking for a refund, as it’s on Gamepass I can live with it, but hope it gets better soon.

    Some great news regarding the Harmony Gold / Big west license disputes over Macross! Looks like it has finally been resolved and Macross can officially be released in the West. Hopefully it will make it to streaming services too. https://kotaku.com/after-decades-of-conflict-were-finally-getting-officia-1846647624
  13. Thanks, 17th sounds about right. I was hoping to have had my first jab by then but that seems unlikely now. The few that I went to last year weren’t bad for social distancing but after 4 months of lockdown it does seem like a bit of a risk for a slim chance of a bargain.
  14. Anyone know what is officially the stance on car boots with lockdown? Do they count as market’s, which I guess will reopen when shops do on the April 12th or outdoor events of more than 30 which will be later in the year?
  15. I’d appreciate a link to your eBay too!
