Now onto the minifig, the great Lobot! I really like this figure. Love his stoned-out look and of course the computer on the back of his head.

That was a neat little set indeed.

Funny though, in all those years I've had it, I never actually thought of putting the talkie walkie in the middle box  :laugh:
