    The NHS can be frustrating at times, but their app is pretty good and much better than most GP staff and phonelines. You only really need your NHS number and a few minutes patience and you're set up. My wife's recent diagnosis of systemic sclerosis would have been much harder to deal with if she couldn't access her medical records (including all doctor notes) and co-ordinate bookings with multiple departments. Rather than leaving bookings to the hands of fate, you can select a time well in advance, to the point that we both have hospital visits pending and we managed to get them booked within 5 minutes of each other.

    It's worth setting up when you're good and healthy, so you're not adding an extra layer of stress to a situation should you really need it.

    Hmm so it becomes a question of do you risk it or go to Smyths and spend £20 more to guarantee a fixed one?

    Trying to find some different metal bands to listen to. Recently found A Sound of Thunder (AWESOME) Turisas (OK but kinda best doing gimmick/meme songs) and Black Veil Brides (Ritual is their only good song the rest are garbage). Any recommendations?

    I'm holding out hope for a final run of the Captain America version - I'm slightly obsessed with that one.

    So what is the current situation with Customs/VAT and TF Safari ?

    Also random question : Anyone know where I can get a throne of the Primes set still - They seem to be dried up now ?

    Jesus, they've let Grant Morrison change what Kryptonite does and it's origins in the comics. That won't be a big mystery leading to jack shit, then.

    If TF Safari's shipping was 1% slower, parcels would be travelling back in time

    What does it matter? DC will change it back in 5 years or just pretend it didn't happen.

    I have one myself, sans the sword. Bought it from Home Bargains around 2015, knowing fully well that that they wouldn't be there the next time I was in (I was right)

    My upgrade kits and occasional NewAge/MFT figure from TFSafari have all stealthed past customs unseen and uncommented on.

    I've never had a shipping issue with Tfsafari.

    HOWEVER, I was meant to receive the Kingdom Ultra Magnus matrix holder/shoulder gap filler set yesterday, and they sent me the wrong kit (magnus feet replacement).

    Tfsafari, show your face and we'll go 3 rounds fam
