    FYI - fully ELECTRICAL functioning lifts have been operating since the later part of the 1870s. Of course the first TRUE modern day lift (founded on safety) was demostrated at the Crystal Palace Expo by Mr Otis (and his French collegue, Chretien) in 1889.

    And I don't think its made out of copper - more probably it was plated in brass. Copper is too highly reactive (and conductive) an element to adorn a lift carriage. (not to mention expensive)

    btw - those who wanna get copies could try looking over at Xtremeplace's buy & sell forum. Do note that this series is banned (if the local censorship body hasn't reclassified the DVD series yet).

    Where in Singapore can we buy the original BOB DVDs ? Is it banned here ? Grammaphone told me so when I asked about it 3 weeks ago.

    The shop in Pensiular Plaza selling at $70. Any one know how is the quality of the pictures ? Was tempted to buy it just now.

    strangely enough, i used to play with the old WW2 Mark 1 and Mark 4 rifles (actual ones, not toys or replicates). brings back some memories. of course they couldn't fire a single shot but i was told that they were more accurate than the M16s nowsadays.
    The Lee Enfields? Must have been in NCC.

    The original BOB dvd is banned in singapore. Quite silly since it seems to me that the version showed on HBO was uncut (SPR was also showed uncut on HBO). All the violence and swearing was left intact.

    The Peninsula one is a duplicate of the original dvd version so quality is good. Comes with the bonus disc.

    If u guys like the movies like SPR or BOB, and if u like computer games, try the Close Combat(CC) Series of war games.

    1)Close Combat
    2)Close Combat 2 "A bridge too far"
    3)Close Combat 3 "The Russian Front"
    4)Close Combat 4 "Battle of the Bulge"
    5)Close Combat 5 "Normandy"

    I am a game fan of these games and there were many scenarios that parallel those in BOB and SPR. Ie Omaha Beach, Bastogne. And I get to play the Germans!!Btw, any CC gamers out there??

    not sure if they were Lee Enfields (i'm not familiar with them) but they're the sames ones used in the BoB series (like the one Winters uses).

    and nope, not from NCC. NS actually, precision drill squad. those things weigh a ton...

    Ohh.. Pyre thanx for the lesson in elevator history and metal properties

    The amazing thing is not really the technology of the elevator but more of the 130m shaft. 130m vaguely translates to a 30 storey high building. Given that the shaft was made at such a high altitude and in such geographical conditions, it certainly wowed me!

    Silly me... I think it's brass indeed, not copper. If it was copper, the entire lift car will be covered with the greenish oxide, no? You're right... you're right...
