    Ha ha ha ha!! I've just pictured the look on the pilferer's face when he/she opens the i3 box and finds a gobstopper inside.

    Even better, they try to flog it on ebay without even opening the box.

    My gobstopper arrived today. I've been sucking it for over an hour now and have gone through speckly white, yellow, back to white, and now on to orange.
    Got to take it out now - my tongue has gone numb!

    I'm tempted to wear mine to BETT...
    Sounds like an idea for a bonus entry for another competition.

    Or a competition in itself !!!!!! A photo of yourself wearing your stocktober t-shirt doing something extreme.

    Scuba diving, Citizens arrest, Life saving CPR etc ....

    All we need to work out now is the grand prize.........???? Ideas anyone??

    Why would you want one of those?

    The Xbone has no games.
