Re: A Solo Subbuteo Blog

I've been in contact with the wobbly hobby shop about the BBB solo Keepers, and for anyone that is interested they now come fully assembled, maybe my blog post did a bit of good after all. Still think they are over priced though at £12.

Re: ref 54 plymouth zombie team , rare? or not

I've just consulted my book no 54 in the Zombie range but reappears in the lightweight range, crossed referenced on Peter Uptons Tribute site, same story, but both HW and LW were based on green bases, they appear to be blue, and the goalkeeper seems to have the same top on. Repaint maybe? Maybe some...
