    I am a SF fan and like most of the movies or shows. Therefore my focus in paper modelling is also in SF.
    Now I found these nice things.

    My son has one of those, you right, you definitely do not want to step on one barefoot. It will leave a lasting impression of the ship in your heel, if your lucky enough to not have it embedded!!! :)

    You might think the make billions of these but they don't. Once the mold is worn out, you won't seem them again. Always hold onto stuff like this because it will have a non replaceable sentimental value eventually. :)

    You are right. Somewhen things are out of stock and might get expensive or at least hard to get. Like these USB - sticks:

    Indeed! :) However, there is one aspect of them which is a BIG no-go (at least IMO): The USB stick does not last forever. Someday it will stop working and you'll end up with a quite expensive piece of plastic / metal with a dead USB stick inside. It's nice but I would spend my money on more lasting things. But - as you have named this thread - these really qualify to be not-must-haves but nice-to-haves. ;)

    Yeah, that may be true, but when they become obsolete, or don't work, then you can play with them and not worry!! :)

    :animated::animated: Thats also cool stuff.
    @ USB - I never tried whether the USB funcion works - I think it is the idea which makes it cool. For me it is a part of my BSG stuff collection and not an USB stick.

    Well I kind of couldn't resist this about a year ago. It really looked kool,:) and when I plug it in to my computer it says it has 124 GB of space, but after trying to put a 30 GB of data on it, and doing a "safely remove" I plug it back in to see if the data saved was there. It didn't, that is it saved about 1.8 GB worth.:( I got ripped, but I still like how it looks.;):) By the way it is Brass metal.

    You could make one of the billion paper guns and make an SD card array in there, six shooter SD card cartridge, pull the trigger, it changes the card! :)
