    I immediately went to order one from Zavvi, but then saw the price (£130). :greedy:

    It looks kinda neat, but I have no idea what I'd do with it... it would probably end up on the shelf gathering dust after a short while

    I bought one and will probably sell it if its value spikes around the release of the film, otherwise I will give it to my nephew.
