Must admit I'm also puzzled by the lack of miniatures so far in this series - and next week is another space based story by the sound of it - I'm wondering if it's...

They half expected the first Falcon Heavy launch in Feb to explode on the pad, but took the view it would produce some "valuable data" if it did.

But there's now a car in...

I suspect they just mean "acquire" in the sense of placing an order with Pukeko Pictures to make another series.

In that respect I note that Pukeko's web site says that Series 3 is still in...
