things I'd sell my soul for

That's the Chap Mei produced A-10, for the 4in action figure market. To some crazy people, like me, it's worth it's weight in gold. Unfortunately, I'm somewhat short in the gold department, and the market worth of undying gratitude is quite low, so I haven't got one of these. Yet.

In truth, the buggers are hard to find anywhere. The only one I've heard of for sale has got up to US$60 and that had been sourced from Malaysia (regrettably - just out of my reach). Funnily enough they've been seen on websites in Eastern Europe ... but my Czech is a little rusty so I'm not going to have much luck ordering from them. Maybe when Span's over there she might keep an eye out for them (that's right Span, I want you to go into every toy shop from Russia to London. What's so unreasonable about that?).

But seriously people, if you do happen to be in the Warehouse, or a toy shop, or a $2 shop and you see one of these - please contact me through the comments.

Ok that is crazy. And not like Sideshow Bob crazy either, more like Ralph Wiggins crazy. (Says the woman who cried when her spanner was nicked.)

But enough of that, what will you give me if I cart it back from Prague for you?

... nah, no crazier than people who make elaborate model railway sets in their basement - which is to say it's not crazy, it's eccentric.

I'm not a terrorist, I'm a freedom fighter!! etc.

what would I get you? Um, I don't know, money?

I'm half joking, that thing would take up a lot of baggage space which I'm thinking would be at a premium for you guys.

Yeah it would be, and to be honest I can't guarantee that I'd buy the right item of Naff Bomb Them Dead Model Paraphenalia (tm) but if you write it all down for me closer to departure I'll grab it if I see it, and I could always post it back to you?

oh you're a sweetie! I sincerely promise it will only bomb imperialists.

I still may have one of these from my private collection if your still looking for one...
