Has it been released yet? I thought it was still pending Hasbro's shenanigans.

Looks like it's pending after the initial excitement :(

Seems the trailer was shown in Wales in Oct 11, scheduled release in March this year then May according to the 'patches of pride' blog.

Not a bad line-up in Wales.

The chap who did this is from Western Australia. He's been on VAME for quite a while.

Indeed. Wondering if he's another Brit gone to Perth or an Ozzie who served in UKAF then went home.

Bizarrely, one of our old acquaintances has been in touch with him ...

.. and also appears to be in touch with Bob Brechin. Who'd have thunk it?

"Tony Roberts is a former British Army soldier who spent over four years operating in Iraq as a private security contractor. Tony has now traded in his rifle for a digital video camera and has made the personal choice to move away from the battlefield and into the filmmaking arena."

Pommy, mate.

:evil: My tablet and wifi hotspot aren't playing with this! Damn BT!!!!
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
