    Just a quick note if there’s anybody out there who quite wants the Corgi Dwarf and Starbug models but hasn’t got round to buying them – the twinpack is currently £4.99 in the Model Zone sale. Not sure where else they’ve got stores, but I’ve seen the twinpack in both the Brighton and Holborn shops.

    Whatever you might think of the design of the Remastered Dwarf, the two models are absolutely lovely pieces of work – and at a fiver (with two slightly crappy plastic Rimmer and Lister figures included as well) they’re an absolute steal…

    I thought this was an advert for a plumber or something.

    I’m more concerned by “wacky”.

    >I thought this was an advert for a plumber or something.

    Title’s a reference to a Half Man Half Biscuit song which is indeed about CORGI rather than Corgi.

    The CORGI qualification relates to gas installation, rather than plumbing.

    Sorry.

    Lol, I like how my review is the ‘most helpful critical review’. Who the hell actually voted that it was helpful??

    Got the models. Love em. I don’t think anyone whines about the Re-mastered ship anymore, do they? Surely not.

    I have the Starbug and scutter, but not the Red Ship. This is kinda tempting (I guess I could sell the superfluous bug. Or paint a ‘2’ it’s side?

    Wow, not even Stabug 2 had a 2 on it.

    Actually, they did paint a 2 on one of the models, but you don’t see it on screen. Ironically it’s the one that was used at the end of series 5. You know the one with the extra lights when in submarine mode? The one that (if the comic continuity is to be taken) returned to find Red Dwarf had mysterious scarpered..

    … effectively becoming Starbug 1 in series 6. (As I said, ‘2’ was obscured though so it’s not a continuity problem after all…

    I got the Starbug playset manufactured by Product Enterprise. I would be tempted to by the Corgi models but since they don’t have the original Red Dwarf(as per series 1 to 5, and it’s brief appearances in 7) I don’t really fancy the Remastered ship. Would have been nice if they made the original ship as well as the Remastered so everyone can be happy. But it’s not a huge deal, it’s not even a moderately sized deal, it’s just a quibble on my part, call me a purist…or a moaner.

    Yes, I know. I –
    a) thought “plumber” was easier to understand/funnier than “gas installation technician”
    b) thought no-one would really care
    c) know that there are plumbers that do gas and vice versa, as they’re sort of linked.
