There is a big thread on this somewhere - most people reporting noticeable differences between the before and after

You can claim back any full months tax - which I believe is issued automatically when the DVLA receive confirmation that you are no longer the registered keeper of the vehicle

I did spot a cheaper kit on ebay...but err...the listing showed a model of Batman and had it labelled as Superman

 

Dodgy, dodgy dealings that!!

I was originally very interested it.  The magazine was a good read and I got to build a robot.  

 

Buuuttt it then became a very dull magazine and having 2 of them to build and not having any batteries to hand (this was before you could buy 50 duracell batteries on ebay for a tenner lol).

 

Wouldn't mind a 3D printer though...maybe not in the magazine form lol

I fell for this twice when I was younger, had a half built robot thingy on wheels, which when finished could supposedly learn it's way around your house, and part of a remote control Impreza WRX which could supposedly do 40mph lol. I can't remember if the magazines stopped or if I just lost interest.

The magazine was "Real Robots"

I collected the whole thing.  As did my sister ("Well, Sean has one..." no prizes for guessing who built hers...)

 

I did ask Mum to stop buying it, but she refused to give-up her £2 deposit for WH Smith holding them lol

 

My interest faded when it started needing 1,000 batteries.  That and I was doing two of the friggin' things.  Ohh...and they extended the magazine run about 3 times.

 

I never used it properly.  Late last year the whole lot was unceremoniously dumped in the bin!
