    Hi, all.

    Does anyone have a list of what came bundled with the 'Rimmer's Tool Kit' set a while back?


    Cheers,

    Can't even find a good image! Best thing I can find it at the bottom of this story.

    Basically it was a computer tool kit - little screwdrivers, etc. - with tag, branding and condom.

    Cheers, Andrew.

    I've posted on G&T to see if anyone has any pics. Will post back if I hear anything.

    Yeah, I think. I'm just interested to know what the contents were. As Andrew said, it was a genuine tool kit (screwdrivers, pliers, etc.) but with some RD stuff thrown in too - if I recall, even the condom had the Red Dwarf logo on..!

    It was also 'size XXS'.

    The pic kinda shows what the tools were...if you squint.

    Quick question, Andrew - any idea as to why there aren't any more pics available online?

    ...Actually, a definitive all-time RD merchandise gallery would be phenomenal.

    I didn't even know about the tool kit until I opened this thread!

    Nobody who saw it in the shop took the pic and kept it?

    I mean, they exist, they're just not easily found online. Druumjay'll have pics for sure...

    Yes I have the pictures, but you've found them already. Exactly as described by Andrew. There is a condom and it's tiny!

    Not useable (apart from perhaps by Rimmer) in an emergency? xD

    The wording says. Jupiter Mining Stores. Condom. Size Small. I would take a picture, but I can't put it on in the dark.

    What about the tools though? Are they actually useful or too flimsy?

    They are mostly very useful. There are a couple odd ones I'm not certain what they are for (one possibly for putting microchips into a board or something) and at least one I wouldn't want to use (the condom - much funnier to keep it in there) but the screwdrivers are definately useful and quite well made.

    I just ordered one for myself from here: http://www.whona.com :-D

    They're US-based too so I didn't have to pay a majillion dollars for shipping either. Too bad they don't have Mr. Flibble puppets though. :-(

    Well they just shipped it today, very fast! I'll get some good pictures up for y'all as soon as the package gets here (shouldn't take more than a few days, it's shipping out of Indianapolis going to Nashville, which is just a trip of about 4 1/2 hours down interstate 65, even the post office should be able to handle that)
