No, no, no, don't get rid of the poster and tube. The tube is a perfect size for me to use as a megaphone when I call out to my nephews and nieces, "Everybody, get out of the pool. Get out of the pool." It drives them crazy.No strut card in this release and the price is £7 lower than usual.... I wonder how much cheaper it would be if they got rid of the equally superfluous tube/poster too?
