I bought…stuff…today

Yes, I got a letter from the Dole today saying I’m going to get Jobseeker’s Allowance after all, so I went up to Glasgow today to spend some of the cash I had saved in case I didn’t get JSA.

So, in roughly chronological order, I bought…

* Transformers Binaltech Silverstreak (more on this later)
* Band of Brothers commemorative edition DVD set
* Cheap-ass Ninja sword
* Cheap-ass foam-covered Nunchaku
* Four PS2 games (Transformers Armada, Tiger Woods 2004, NFL Street and Soul Calibur II)

For the non-Transfans out there, the Binaltech (or Alternators as they’re known outside of Japan) Transformer range is basically a range of TFs designed to look as realistic as possible in their vehicle modes; they contain interior detailing, working steering, rubber tyres, metal body parts (the Alternator versions are all-plastic however)

The fig I got today is the Japanese Binaltech version of Silverstreak (or Bluestreak as he was originally known in the classic Transformers lineup from the 80s). Vehicle-wise, he’s based on a Japanese Subaru Impreza WRX.

Nifty, eh?

Well, I should be starting Ninjutsu classes on Sunday. I’ll be blogging the outcome of that for sure.
