    w00t!

    It's been 28 years since I rolled off the production line, and to mark this occasion I received a fair amount of swag this morning.

    First up, off the folks:

    Finally got the Takara box set. :D  A bit of an oddity, but that pretty much completes all the TF box sets, for this country at least.

    I also received...

    The rather exsquisite Star Wars Vault - production notes, photos and repro'd oddities and merchandise from all six episodes. Inside the box is a huge hardback book:

    It's full of random stuff like this, I've not been able to put it down. :)  Includes two CDs of vintage radio ads, the Star Tours soundtrack, George Lucas' original commentary... oh, and Princess Leia singing. Holiday Special ftw!

    I got money off my brother (my siblings live between 250 and 12,000 miles away), which I spent on this today:

    Lego Mars Mission Switchfighter! Thanks go to Chaos Muffin for bringing this set to my attention.

    It also transforms. ;) 

    I haven't received everything yet, so there's more to come. :D

    Thank you all. :D  It's been quite a good'un, especially as I was only at work for 4 hours today. Full 7.5 hours tomorrow though, couldn't get any time off. :(  I'll make up for it come the weekend though!
