Originally posted by Denyer What's the "if you've received blood since 1980" bit all about, and surely it rules out a sizeable and ever-increasing percentage of the population? Yeah, people like me. I'd kind of intended to give blood but not got round to it, then I received a blood transfusion when...

Originally posted by Cliffjumper Who fandom, for one, is a lot more fun in old 'zines, and in moderation online.

My main memory of Cosmos was the fact that his head was incapable of staying up when you'd transformed him into robot mode - it always fell back down into its saucer-mode position. Oh, and the numerous generic deceptions he killed in the Smelting Pool issues.

Originally posted by Cliffjumper Well, if I'm remembering Iceyawnberg correctly, the events of "The Invasion" were covered up, and Isobel was dismissed as a ditzy tart, right? So, if Torchwood are in competition with UNIT, UNIT might not have shared information about that one with them. There's als...

Originally posted by Heinrad The Cybermen and the Daleks should be evenly matched. While the Daleks are fewer in number, they do have deflector shields, and the Cybermen won't know how to deal with them. Daleks are tougher than Cybermen on an individual basis, but if it's an all-out fight, 3 Daleks...

Replies: 4
Views: 1085

The biggest single change would have been that there would have been no UK comic - there was never a DC UK like there was a Marvel UK. That would, in turn, have meant that Transformers wouldn't have been half as successful in the UK market, not to mention that we would have lost many of the best Tra...

I remember watching both the Wide Awake Club and Wacaday, but I have precisely zero memories of watching the TF cartoon as a child. All my childhood TF memories were of comics, toys, and adverts.

Well there were some good ideas buried in there. Shame about the execution.

I'll have to find out what the kid who designed the Absorbalof thought of the episode. He happens to live down the road from my parents.

I have a whole load of extensions including some of the ones Denyer's got but my favourite is a little one called Target Alert which puts an icon next to links which open in a new window, link within the same page, or aren't webpages. Not sure just why it's my favourite, but it is.
