    It good because when I got my Slave One I had two buy two Boba Fetts one for desplay and one to put in the Slave One so it looked cool. Now u dont have to worry about that. But making them exclusive to american shops was a cab desision buy Hasbro.

    I think all vehicles should come with a figure and they should differ in some way to other figures that are similar eg: pilots

    OK another topic.

    Should students be forced to pay interest on their loans or should it be that what ever you take out you put back, no interest charged or is there another sollution that can help students learn without needing to worry about extensive debts?

    I reckon if there was no interest on loans, there would be less incentive to pay it back. i know that when my course ends, my loan will skyrocket.

    there seems to be a very laid back carefree attitude to tertiary study in NZ, (take humble extra for example). I think this is a big influence on the growing student debt, $20,000 loan? she'll be right, mate.

    If there was an easier way, surely it would be in place by now? Polytech in invercargill had free courses at one stage to get people to go there. this seemed to work out for the local economy, but i dont think other places would benefit.

    as always, we shall leave it to our Government.

    With my student loan the interest was charged while I was at Uni, so it got huge before I could even do anything about it. So the attuide remains - Screw it.

    The current students loan system is a joke
    I agreed we have to pay some interest but not market interest rates.
    maybe 2-3%, what do you think?
    what are they thinking they are going to get taxes from us for the rest of our lives isn't that enough
    isn't it better to make it so we can pay it back rather than let it burden us for years to come
    isn't it amazing how governments make simple things complicated,
    i still want to know why did i have to apply for a new loan every year???? under their system i applied for 3 loans which is now just 1 anyway you think i could have just ticked a box saying i wanted to carry it over to the next year

    what would we do with out Star Wars
    my student loan helped start my collection
    what do people think of the new deluxe range can't wait for the Amanaman pack

    Did you see the news last night, to decrease the number of sexual attacks in Wellington; the council is increasing the number of street cleaners. Mainly in the areas and time slots when the attacks are happening.

    Damn logical for a council. Maybe the goverment should take notes.

    I wish I could get a student loan! Because my courses are under 26 weeks they won't help! Even though the reason I am doing these courses is to qualify for a full time course next year that they will give me a loan for! Its catch 22! :p

    Welcome farmboy! :D

    Here's a topic for debate. I read in Craccum this morning that Cantebury University have started a new paper, Wizardry 101.

    If you take this paper, are you crazy?
