I was born in 1965. However, through film, books, and television I am aware of things that took place before my birth. I will assume you live in a mutant sewer colony, cut off from the outside world, except for the Frothers site through a freak tear in the fabric of time and space.


Not everybody has seen every pre-80's sci-fi TV series! I bet there's plenty of shit that happened prior to your birth that you are completely ignorant of too.


No, I know everything.

I am all for the nostalgia thing of old tele, but i dont remember the Blake 7 cast being that ugly? Those figures are extremely facially challenged, either that or they just went 10 rounds with Mike Tyson. :shock:

I thought the first one looked a good deal like a young Jeremy Clarkson.









Sorry. I;ve never seen Blake 7 either.

I dunno, given that the heads are probably only 4mm or so, I'd say Ian's done a pretty good job...

I have sort of fond memories of Blake's 7 but do find it a bit cringeworthy to watch these days.

For some reason it is decidedly more cheesey than Dr. Who in my eyes.

These mini's are nice. But I am a bit curious as to whether there is a market out there for them.

I say that as if you were going to replay any of the Blake's 7 adventures you'd need the team and maybe a couple of baddies and some white outline armatures for when they 'beam'.

So nice enough but not for me. :)

I loved Blakes 7. I was at primary school when it was on and always got to be Avon. Not because I was cool, but because I had a bowl head barnet.

I remember the guns that they used to have: my mum had a set of hair curlers by Braun or Clairol or someone that looked just like the laser dildo thing the Blake mini is holding.

I also remember an episode of Blue Peter where they made replicas of the wrist communicators they wore.
