Well... you have a point, I'd just like to complete the collection.  On a similar note, a little rude alien and two sci-fi nerds wold also be a good addition to the crew

Is that a bit like the photocopy nature of writing as well?  .... when They're on their adventure ;)

I've not seen the film... is it the one where they visit their old stomping ground and there are robots everywhere?

That's the one, Inso. I saw it, and while I wasn't as impressed as I was by the previous movies, I still enjoyed the sharp comedy, and the tension between the guys who had settled down into mundanity, and the one who refused to (and/or couldn't). I could see both sides; and I think the script may have too. The ending was... odd.

As for potential for miniatures... I'd guess 'ordinary blokes' don't sell well. Even if Kev has been known to do them from time to time. Paul suffers from a similar problem; even the title character was a very generic Grey.

I watched this movie yesternight. I don't think it's bad; it's just very different from Shaun and Fuzz. Unlike the others, this almost isn't a comedy; there are gags and laughs, but the main theme is very serious. The robot thing is weird, bus as they said, it's just alienation taken literally.

Regarding minis, Kev would be the best sculptor to make them. But I'm not sure if "plain civilian" minis are economically viable.

That last bit :) Sorry everyone.
