    Maybe it's my warped sense of value when it comes to such things then

    I mean it's not like they sell above RRP or anything, but they don't seem to have much on sale very often either

    And I just can't bring myself to pay $30-$40 for a figurine or head knocker or whatever it is that strikes my fancy

    well I mean you can't shop there weekly or whatever

    but if you go in knowing you're gonna spend some money it's not that awful

    Somehow I don't have a problem dropping $80 on a video game, but if I went into Minotaur with that same amount, I would probably leave empty handed because nothing seemed worth it

    Borders is usually worse bookwise

    and I'm just not that much of a figure buyer

    although they had a Donny bobble-head the other day that I hate myself for passing up

    also absolutely nothing

    I'm not much of a figure buyer either, I just wish I was sometimes

    I think it goes back to never getting the TMNT figure I really really wanted when I was 12

    Though there's not much I like enough to have merchandise from really

    I do have a few games figures, and a plastic Fry

    Minotaur is expensive, but it's still one of the cheaper places for collectibles in Melbourne.

    I talk mostly from some ten years' worth of Doctor Who figure hunting experiences.

    ive had a $50 borders voucher since april because i go in and browse a while and then im like i dont want any damn books and what if something better comes out soon

    i had this other $25 voucher to a small boutique and second hand bookstore that i only used about 3 days before it expired

    i was thinking maybe get an expensive book i wouldnt normally spend $40 on to make good use of the discount
    ended up going with about $3 in my pocket and expensive books seemed like a silly idea when i could get a couple of cheaper books instead
    more books>less books
    ended up getting 3 books (2 cheap penguin books and a second hand) and only had to pay an extra 50cents

    yes
    more books to not read
    add them to the pile i got for xmas last year

    Yes, YaYa. You should apologise.

    Damn, I linked the wrong one. There were about five or six of those, including this seven-minute-long one that had parts of the YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

    No one actually cuts these properly.

    YaYa, I don't watch CSI, so I'm going to assign this task to you.

    Man, I worked for them for 5 years and I still think they're horrible

    Actually, it's probably the major reason, their service is usually OK, except for their useless internet banking which decides to give me random session expiries when I try to pay bills

    I'll be taking a few pics with my phone, if anybody else has a decent compact camera they should probably bring it, I don't have one that can fit in a pocket and I don't want to be lugging a bag around

    It's stopped here (Bayswater), I'm hoping it holds off at least long enough for me to walk to the train station later
