Batman: The Dark Knight Rises - Bat Cowl Special Edition (With UltraViolet) (2 Discs)
For some reason I expected the Bat Cowl to be bigger than what it is but fits just alright on the shelf. Doesn't quite scream "quality".
I also expected the discs to be in a typical Blu-Ray case neatly concealed inside the base but instead they're placed on top of another in a plastic disc shaped tub which slides into the back of the base. It feels cheap - I would have much preferred a normal case due to worries of scratching.
Considering these were meant to be 'limited edition' there are no signs anywhere stating this on the product.
The Blu-Ray quality is also so-so. The sound is mixed and I found my self unable to hear conversations due to the overwhelming music. I won't even start on the UV "download".

Pros: The graphics, new actions, point system and instinct really takes the Hitman game to a higher level as well as detailed environments and having more variety of ways to take someone out.
Cons: The levels aren't as big as older games, it's linear maps with less freedom as you find yourself hiding from security/police along a washed out story line.
Hot Toys 12" Captain Jack Sparrow: On Stranger Tides
Gifts & Gadgets
I own a fair few Hot Toys and this is by far one of those worth the extra few pounds. The detail along with the amount of items, even the wheel (helm) for the stand that comes bundled is fantastic, and all carry a huge amount of detail.
Most of the items are already attached to Jack so you won't have to fuss too much. Even with the coat on he's able to move around a fair amount. Plus the mouths are easy to change.
I received this off Play around Christmas (unfortunately for my wallet). Maybe the excitement got to my head but after a few experiments with the Inkling it wasn't as good as I imagined.
The whole design and way it's packaged is flawless. The software is easy to install and use, along with changing nibs and packing it back up. It feels secure and well built.
It's let down by the accuracy. As a graphic designer I thought this would be a great substitute to scanning in masses of paper but when drawing detailed sketches and going back over areas it was unable to cope. For simple idea generation and doodles the Inkling would be OK, for anything detailed, stick to old fashioned ink.
The pen also feels very bulky and has to be held at a certain position which can be off putting.
