"Use the Force" or alternatively "Just Press the Big Red Fire Button"

Well there you are, innocently doing some Xmas shopping and then you see 'something' that is 'just so you, as you are just a great big kid' ... and you know you just cannot resist ... hmm, Revell .. Star Wars .. X-Wing Rebel Fighter .. and I am just somewhere else. "This is Red Two, I am entering the trench now, targeting computers locked on" .. and in the middle of a busy shop, packed with Xmas punters you find yourself making corny sound effects .. move quickly to the checkout with purchase and exit (see below)!

Red Two

You Tube Link to the "Death Star Trench Attack"

The only thing is .. warning entering "Nerd mode" .. that I don't think one is enough (two would be a good fighter pairing, after all you need a good wing-man) and Revell also do a lovely Republic "Clone Trooper" Drop-Ship, but I think you need four of those for a decent formation!

Brilliant! Another good reason why us chaps shouldn't be allowed out shopping unattended! ;)
