5.0 out of 5 stars Empire Escorts for my SUV!, May 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice set of Star Wars window shades that I use for the rear side windows of my Toyota SUV. Darth Vader on one side & an imperial stormtrooper on the other. As with many modern SUV's or other vehicles my rear, side windows are slightly tinted dark so the Darth Vader image is faintly visible from the outside. The white stormtrooper image on the other hand is very visible & really stands out much more. From inside the vehicle you can see both images more clearly as they both keep you cool from the sun. Both shades can be folded to circular shapes, bit there are no straps or fastners to keep them folded. The included suction cups simply just clip on to the shades & work well.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Affordable Version of the Infamous James Bond Classic Corgi Aston Martin!, April 23, 2016
Original versions of the vintage James Bond Aston Martin by Corgi are easily priced around $100 or more so I was pleasantly surprised to find this affordable new version by Corgi. Almost virtually identical to the original the throwback packaging was also a standout to a new reissue for a classic car of significant film heritage. Get yours now when you can!

5.0 out of 5 stars Goes Great with the Other Star Wars Steel Books!, April 23, 2016
The steel book version of "The Force Awakens ' is one of the best versions to get. The Target blu ray set has inferior packaging and the standard version is just "standard ". If you already own the steel books of all the other Star Wars films then this new steel book compliments it perfectly!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Costume that Looks Great, but Challenging to Wear for Shorter Stormtroopers!, January 28, 2016
The Rubie’s Supreme Stormtrooper Costume is a very, good costume to me despite all of the mixed Amazon reviews. I bought the standard size. At 5’-5” I knew in advance it was going to be a challenge for me to wear it as it seemed the majority of the other reviewers are much taller. For slight comfort, I ditched the chin/ankle armor and opted to wear longer white boots instead which made mobility slightly better. As many other reviewers noted, the helmet is the worst part of the costume. I opted to buy the deluxe Efx collectibles helmet instead (big difference like night & day compared to the weak, Rubies hemlet). To complete the Efx helmet, I mounted a complete intercom system with tip speakers & a small fan. The velcro attachment connecting the black gloves to the wrist armor felt awkward to connect at times, but I found it useful to hold my black gloves when I decided to take off the gloves at certain times. Mobility for me was very limited and slow. I was able to sit down while wearing the costume, but only with a tall chair such as a stool. Overall the costume still looked great to me. It looked especially impressive to all of my friends and co-workers that saw it. I used it last Halloween with my six-year old son who wore a simple, stormtrooper costume for children.

4.0 out of 5 stars Adequate Test Kit - Moderate API Product Endorsement in the Instructions, June 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: API Reef Master Test Kit (Misc.)
Simply put having a test kit is essential for any reef aquarium keeper. I only have a 28-gallon tall aquarium with just soft corals, a feather duster, a few damsels & a couple of cleaner shrimp. The API Reef Master Kit is well packaged and everything is labeled very clearly. I sometimes have difficulty interpreting the nitrate and phosphate tests as the results are limited to viewing color code charts of different shades of green and orange. For example when I conduct the test for nitrates, my resulting shade of green from my test tube is in the range of .50 to 1.0 as my best guess instead of .50 or 1.0.

The instructions are very well written and easy to follow although I can't help, but notice API's intentional attempt at product placement by their brand. For example if your test kit yields a high result for phosphates, the instructions recommends that you purchase & use API's Phos-Zorb to help reduce phosphates in addition to conducting water changes & removing waste. If you have low calcium levels you can use API's Eco Calcium Marine to increase calcium levels. If your nitrates are high you can use API Tap Water Filter to help reduce nitrates in addition to water changes & the removal of waste.

Some other reviewers have complained about the absence of the ammonia test, but I have already owned API's ammonia test kit (with its different shades of yellow test results chart) that I used when I initially cycled my aquarium, so adding the reef master kit just supplemented to what I already have. Didn't need the instructions help to buy another API product for ammonia testing because I already did.

Overall an adequate test kit for the very important task of truly knowing what's in your aquarium water (or at least ballpark figure ranges) to help your corals, fish & invertebrates thrive successfully.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Is Stanley a Manly Man?", April 1, 2013
Sorry for the inconveniance, just a review of "Terror Vision" !

I bought the Terror Vision/The Video Dead DVD/Blu-Ray combo mainly for Terror Vision. A b-rated horror/comedy from the 1980's that was a personal favorite of mine as I still have a VHS copy of it.

In a nutshell, the film is about a space monster that is accidently transported to earth via a unsuspecting family's satellite dish. However, the real highlight of the film isn't the monster, but the wacky cast of humans especially the very, disfunctional Putterman family. The swinger parents, gung-ho military grandpa, Cindy Lauper look-a-like valley girl Suzy (played brilliantly by actress, Diane Franklin), Suzy's boyfriend, a heavy metal clad "O.D." (played by John Gries AKA Uncle Rico from "Napolean Dynamite") and the brave, little hero Sherman (played by a very young Chad Allen who later played a sheriff in the "Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman" TV series). As I found out from writer/director Ted Nicolaou who stated in his commentary & special features interview, the film was bashed by critics & the general audience on its initial release, but developed sort of a cult following later after its home video release. Simply the type of film that you either love or hate!

Both the Blu-Ray & DVD look fantastic as both feature films are presented in widescreen 1.78:1 anamorphic transfers. Dolby Digital Audio for the DVD & DTS HD audio for the Blu-Ray. Both feature films on each disc (DVD & Blu-Ray). The special features are identical for both the DVD & Blu-Ray. I posted images of my set above.

For Special Features, Terror Vision has a full-feature length commentary with writer/director Ted Nicolaou, actress Diane Franklin (Suzy Putterman) and actor John Greis (O.D.). Besides all three commentators' personal experiences with the film that are discussed, most of the commentary is screen specific as all three participants pretty much talk about each scene as it goes.

A 34-minute behind the scenes & making of featurette is also included as we get the usual director, cast & crew interviews with some behind the scenes stills & video clips. We get current video interviews from writer/director Ted Nicolaou, actresses Diane Franklin (Suzy Putterman) & Mary Woonov (Racquel Putterman), actors John Greis (O.D.) & Chad Allen (Sherman Putterman) and many others. It was interesting to note the following;

Entire film was shot in location just outside of Rome, Italy with a predominately American cast, but predominately Italian film crew.

Chad Allen was only about nine years old in the film, but his concerned, religious parents viewed the set and had mild complaints about the numerous erotic, nude paintings that dominated the interiors of the Putterman household set.

According to the director, Belinda Carlisle was a cast consideration for the role of Suzy Putterman & Harry Shearer for the role of the father, Stanley Putterman, but both were either not interested in the roles or were unavailable.

Frank Zappa was a consideration to score the film's music, but was either unavailable or not interested so Richard Band, scored the film instead & a L.A. rock-band called "The Fibonaccis" performed the "Terror Vision" theme song.

Actress Mary Woonov was originally casted to play the late night TV show vixen "Medusa", but insisted on playing the mother, Racquel Putterman instead.

The special features conclude with a photo gallery consisting about twenty photos of cast/crew shots & multiple Theatrical posters (some international).

5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great for Me!, March 26, 2013
I use my Mag Float 30 (small) for my 28-gallon acrylic hexagon reef aquarium. Acrylic hexagons are probably some of the hardest types of aquariums to clean especially if you try to use any of the long-handle, plastic scrubbers due to limited, top-clearance access. I still use my plastic-handle scrubber periodically, but the Mag Float helps me reach the areas that I cannot reach. I really like how the Mag float magnet floats to the top when separtated. Like the other reviewer stated, I cannot scrub the curved edges with the Mag Float. Despite what other reviewers have stated I have not encountered any scratches on my acrylic aquarium due to the use of the Mag Float. Works fine with me!

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Scrape Hard Enough!, March 21, 2013
I bought this from a local store at a very cheap price thinking it could be a quick fix to scrubbing off some tough algae spots in my acrylic, hexagon aquarium that I cannot reach with my plastic-handle acrylic scraper. The Aquatech scraper's pads are like a soft felt pad and was only able to remove some soft algae, but not the more coarse algae that is more prevalent in my reef tank. I'm going to spend a little more next time & get the Mag-Float cleaner instead.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple & Effective!, March 18, 2013
I purchased the Aqueon 30-gallon Quietflow Iternal Filter (medium) as a second filter for my 28-gallon tall reef aquarium that already has a HOB filter. My aquarium has a black backround so it was easy to blend this filter into the background. I really like how thin this filter is compared to most other internal filters that are more bulkier in appearance. The replacement filter (my medium uses one Aqueon large size filter replacement) is your standard disposable filter with some carbon, but I was suprised to see how small it was as it only fits in the bottom half of the whole filter. The bottom half of the filter mounts to the aquarium wall via four small, but firm suction cups while the top half that houses the motor just snaps on top. Looks very easy to swap filter cartridges if you don't mind getting your hands a little wet as all you do is remove the top half of the filter, remove a small plastic retainer plate and swap the filter cartridge.

It is very quiet and the power consumption is only 7 watts. The rate of flow is adjustable via a small sliding plastic clip as I have set my filter on maximum (142 gallons per hour on max). The direction of flow can be adjusted in numerous positions as the filter can be mounted horizontally or vertically. I mounted my Aqueon internal filter so that the output shoots in a opposite direction against my Koralia power-head. Overall, simple but effective!

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfies Everybody in my Marine Aquarium!, February 1, 2013
My aquarium store dealer recommended New Life Spectrum pellets to me & so far all of my fish & invertebrates are eating it very well. I have yellow tail damsels, a blue velvet damsel & a 3-stripe damsel that snatch the pellets from either the surface water or when it gently floats down. My fish have very small mouths so sometimes they have to bite the pellets multiple times to eat it. Whatever pellets they miss my cleaner shrimp grab them from the sand floor or on top of live rocks. Sometimes the pellets land on my sea anemone or polyps and they eat them too! I still feed my marine fish frozen mysis about once or twice a week, but I feed the New Life Spectrum pellets the rest of the week.
