    My kit arrived today. Came in a white card sleeve and the pouch itself sealed in that cellophane-type plastic. No condom or tag, I'm afraid, but I gather there are one or two other Dwarfers out there who strangely seem to be missing these items too...

    [​IMG]

    So, here we go from left to right (not sure of the specific sizes:-(

    1* Large Flat Screwdriver
    2* Large Crosshead Screwdriver
    3* Small Flat Screwdriver
    4* Small Crosshead Screwdriver
    5* IC Extractor
    6* ?
    7* Double-Headed Torque Bit & Driver
    8* Tweezers
    9* 3 Claw Part Holder (fantastic, BTW)
    10* Nut Driver
    11* Nut Driver


    ...I'm not sure what the sixth piece is. It's the spring-loaded black/yellow tool seated in the spine of the pouch, which I guess could be a non-magnetic probe or something.

    Funnily enough, mine showed up today too. No tag or condom in mine either, they must've done a second run of them without the fun items, I guess. :crying:

    Here are some clearer images of the kit though. The images are too big to just post by 40 pixels, (why is it 760 x 600 instead of 800 x 600 like EVERYTHING is? MAKES NO SENSE.), so clicky clicky:

    It's a shame they re-realeased them without the funny items, I was just going to buy one, but its a bit silly buying a toolikit just because it has the Red Dwarf logo on it. Shame. Thanks for the heads up guys.

    The tag too, if you don't mind. At least then I'll know what I've missed out on. :evil:

    I second that question. Ive bought one of those very items, and its In the post, so I hope its genuine. It does say sealed so I'm not going to be opening the seal to find out either.

    They certainly appear to be, the tools contained within are the same,
    As is the printed face - But!
    and it's a big but - no XS condom or key-fob..

    To the best of my knowledge, all of the tool-kits were supposed to have a condom/ keyring,
    I Don't know for certain though - Perhaps El Presidente, or the mighty Andrew himself would be better informed ;-)
