One: The new USS Enterprise looks freaking cool. I'm not entirely sold on the short engineering section yet, but overall, I like it a lot. Better than the 60's version, anyway. Best feature? The chromed-out warp nacelles.
Two: I'm pretty sure I saw Stardust in the cinema, so that would have been back in August last year. And I remember that almost as soon as I saw Tristan's sword, I fell in love with it; something about the proportions, the detailing and the utility of it combine to make it the most beautiful sword I'd ever seen. Anyway, earlier this yeah, I discovered that it was actually going into production, made by one of the finest armouries in the world. But, it was expensive, and swords and toddlers are probably not a good combination, so I sighed greatly and resigned myself to not getting it. Then, on Fathers' Day, Amy told me that she'd bought it for me, but it would be a month or so before it arrived. Oh, right. I mentioned this at the time, so if you have the memory of an elephant, this is old news to you. Anyway, they were (apparently) just going into production at the time, so I didn't get them right away.
In fact, it finally arrived yesterday! I got #24 of a run of 1,000, and it's even more beautiful in person than it is on the screen. Bloody heavy, though.
You have no idea how happy this makes me.
