LEGO Jurassic World Game Teaser Trailer

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

LEGO have released a teaser trailer for their forthcoming Jurassic World Game.

Typical Lego humour.

The Comet is on its way…

Friday, January 30th, 2015

Battlefront have shown a preview of the new plastic Comet boxed set.

Flames of War Comet

One of my most popular blog posts is from 2011 when I discussed the then forthcoming Battle of Bulge supplement.

I made the request

I would like to see two tanks in particular, the M24 Chaffee and the British Comet. These tanks are currently not in the FoW range.

The Chaffee arrived in 2012, but it has taken a little longer for the Comet to arrive. As with many of the new models from Battlefront it is a plastic kit. It looks great and the instructions simple, resulting in an effective looking model.

Flames of War Comet

The Tank, Cruiser, Comet I (A34) was a British cruiser tank that first saw use near the end of World War II. It was designed to provide greater anti-tank capability to Cromwell tank squadrons. It was armed with a 77mm HV, a derivative of the 17 pounder, with the result it was one of the few British tanks with the firepower to challenge late war German designs.

Here is the trailer for Terminator: Genisys

This new film, a reboot of the franchise, looks like a combination of the first two films mashed together, with elements of number three thrown into the mix.

Well indeed why not?

Why not take what made those films an enjoyable time travel cyborg cinematic romp and create a new film for a new generation. You might not remember, but the original Terminator film came out thirty years ago, so for many it’s an old film. It would be like us watching a 1954 film in 1984! Now I feel like Marty McFly.

Great Scott!

I am not sure if I am impressed or disappointed.
