    To be fair, I thought it was really good in Captain Marvel, although better for Fury than Coulson.

    Fine Needle / 27g syringe to pin the joint. Bit of superglue and will be stronger than new

    ...
    is SS Thrust worth £30? i can get him from kapow for £25 delivered, but going out to smyths is quicker. is he better than blitzwing?

    Ways to fix:

    1) (the best if you have the tools) With the smallest needle extension, dremel a small hole or pocket into the handle/hilt. Sand down the butt of the blade just enough so that it'll fit into the newly created pocket. Put a bubble of hot glue into the pocket, insert the blade into pocket and once it dries you should be good to go.

    2) Super/crazy glue, like industrial strength because you have two flat clean surfaces and that's going to be a PITA to get to bond.

    3) Forgot one. You could use a small bit of Miliput to rebuild a foundation for the blade to attach to the handle/hilt.

    Hope that helps.

    Personally, I would pay a few quid more and pick a good one from smyths. The ones I liked at had pretty mixed qc with maybe 2 figures from 3 smyths stores worth of cases being passable.

    Apparently the prop handler from the production crew would regularly take the gun during shooting breaks and use live rounds for target practice. Unironic use of shooting break there. Very easy to imagine he left one in the chamber. Clips are usually clearly colour marked to differentiate between blank and live and only a moron would pop live rounds in a blanks cartridge, so it had to just be one in the chamber, right?

    Baldwin seemingly did nothing wrong, but it won't make him feel less shitty I'm sure.

    No Waspinator today, Yodel are playing the “We need more information but we won’t give you any way of providing it to us” card. Bastards. Just say “The driver can’t be bothered to look properly” and call it what it is….

    I have long suspected that Ilkeston, Derbyshire is a culturally backward shithole, the lack of anywhere stocking Jaffa Cake doughnuts only reinforces this view :D 

    First thing I thought of when I heard about Alec Baldwin was Brandon Lee. Just a horrible accident :( 

    Going to watch the 2nd series of Gone Fishing during today then series 3 after the football tomorrow evening as I suspect I'll need a laugh after watching United get stuffed by Liverpool. Such a funny series even though the fishing element would be off putting to many.

    @Xaran Alamas,
    Decent idea! I recently saw a gigantic 3D printed Jabba's Palace playset in 3.75" scale that incorporated a Rancor pit with the gate so just having the gate might work for the larger scale.
