Just a quick one, I was wondering if any US/Canada geeks would be able to help me find a Nerf Wildfire? I've been searching high and low here in the UK, but all I've turned up is a heavily broken one and one on eBay being sold for $50, which is an unreasonable price. Ideally I am looking for something up to about $35 +/- a bit (not including shipping), and of course I will PayPal the money over before anything is sent [Wink] Obviously, if any of the UK geeks know of one, or even want to sell me one themselves, that is good also [Smile]

Many thanks
Stibbons

Good God, Man! We can't ship something like that overseas! Don't you know a Weapon of Mass Destruction when you see one? [evil]

--------------------
I don't know what I was thinking... it seemed like a good idea at the time.

I think Weapon of mass distraction would describe this thing better. Have you ever toyed around with one of these? It kicks arse in cubicle warfare! [evil]

I'll look around here in Germany, there's a toy shop between the office and the sandwich shop

The ultimate weapon of mass distraction is the radio controlled blimp. Bring one into an office and watch 10 to 20 people spend the next three hours play with it. It can cost your company $1000s in lost productivity.

You're putting ideas in my head. [Big Grin]

Allan: Cheers, it would be fantastic if you find one

n4dmx: I've been on the recieving end of one before. Hence why I want one. Nothing better for clearing out rooms full of people with RBGs... [Smile]

quantumfluff: The blimp is one of those things I'm forcing myself not to buy for precisely that reason. One of my friends does have a remote control hovercraft though, and that is equally good waste of time [thumbsup]

Oh man...my friends have those things - loads of fun...I've only played with one maybe once or twice, but had a blast with it. I'll look/ask around...

Quick update: Not only did I manage to find a Wildfire on eBay at a reasonable price (which I won on my mobile while up a mountain), today I acquired yet another cool piece of kit:
