I'm still very new to blake's 7, I bought the boxsets of s1 and 2 during lockdown, I'm 9 episodes in to s1 so far, but I've got to say... S4 is Avon's best look, if I was doing the action figures this is what I'd put him in

Question for Mr. Al: What are the most popular figures based on sales? I'd guess it would be either Doctors or Daleks?

I’ve got a question, sir!

How come Ace can be released with her accessories- both a backpack, rocket launcher and a rocket... but we struggle to see the release of sonic screwdrivers- particularly in a set (ie 12 and Davros) where the screwdriver is integral to the story?

Will the new Davros in the two pack have the inside of the chair painted black or silver like the original release?

Why did the original Imperial Dalek have a blue eye?

Whereas in reality its Orac saying..ER ER ER ER ER ... 'Why do you insist on believing the impossible when logic and all current data quite clearly dictates that such an event will never happen!' ... ...ER ER ER ER ER >>>>
:lol: caught myself reading that in my head with Peter Tuddenham's voices for Zen and Orac :lol: thank you for that!

Taking a leaf from SJF’s book here;
“Ships” is an obvious reference to the anime-spawned definition of ship.
“40,000” is clearly alluding to Warhammer 40,000, the 28mm miniature wargame.
“Closing” is a reference to the financial state of many businesses right now.

From this, we can extrapolate that the Government’s new recovery scheme is something along the lines of “One CO-made 5 inch Warhammer 40k figure for every household”, and Al is telling us in advance... ;)

I saw straight through that red-herring of a clue - BING .... BONG......AVON CALLING.........

Oh no, the real clue is the word “CONFIMED” -

What is missing from “CONFIMED”? - the “R” - and which of these also does not have an “R” in it............

- Roger Delgado
- Peter Pratt
- Geoffrey Beavers
- Anthony Ainley
- Eric Roberts

So without any shadow of a doubt, Al is confiming that the devious, charismatic, man in black figure he has ready to release is none other than the classic-look Ainley Master!!!!

The letters missing are atsi which sounds a bit like antsi. Thats because Al is antsy that we've worked out the Ainley Master release.

Fantastic clearly hints at a ninth doctor era set with Jackie, Lynda and Adam

OMG!!!!!

4 missing letters - the first of which can be found in the first of these, the second in the second of these etc.....

- Roger Delgado
- Peter Pratt
- Geoffrey Beavers
- Eric Roberts

The missing letters being ‘atsi’ which stand for And The Subsequent Instalments..... so add on the previous missing letter and we have

And The Subsequent Instalments R ....... A FULL RUN OF CLASSIC MASTERS!!


Now - remove the letters ‘atsi’ from ‘Ainley Master’ and use the remaining letters to create a Master-esq anagram and you get the release rate for these new figures ....... ‘yearly men’


With news like this I’m off to crack open a bottle of Asti :D
