The shock news yesterday that if you're travelling via Heathrow's splendid Terminal 5 it's probably best to leave the Transformers t-shirt at home prompted widespread condemnation of the UK's terror-busting airport security protocols. In the case of Brad Jayakody, he wisely opted to swap the offending shirt for something less …
"dog teams "
I've stared at the picture for 2 minutes and I can't see a dog. My work colleague says they can see it but won't tell me where. Is there really a dog?
it says plenty.
Three carry on bags, I would have bust their ass!
Coat is on just leaving
Wow, love the photo, worthy of crimewatch that is.
Having had some rather devastating personal news today, thank you for putting a smile on my face again!
Does that mean that it's....
That cheered me up :-)
Playmobil, pirates *and* Transformers...
...there may be the odd geekgasm this afternoon.
OMG - Friday already?
ah - if only. I'd better hang this back up on the lower peg.
T5 Transformers t-shirt bust:
The Horror, The horror.
What's El Reg internal order code for a new keyboard, as you guys now owe me one.
Fscking Brilliant - The best yet!!!
see title, especially the al-qaeda pirates. Scary thing is you can almost image it being true, half of the the nitwits in those jobs couldn't spot a weapon if it was waved in their faces.
one question though - where's the dog unit? Or did the dog spot an approved training bag and confuse it for drugs ala japan?
you guys are the nuts!
roflmao..go OPTIMUS !
You guys are clearly having a slow news day but at least you are being more productive than I am.
Thank Playmobil it's Friday, um Tuesday
Another Photographic Masterpiece. Not sure if it makes up for the lack of a weekly Friday Playmobil section, but it's nice to have.
Utterly....Utterly........Priceless, I think you nicely summed it up, and in Lego no less, genius!!!
That is all.
It would be funny if it wasn't true
War criminals can go free as long as they are guarded onto the plane, weapon shipments can be bribed through by parliament but you can't take a T shirt with a picture on it.
WHAT IF? I wore a t shirt with that picture on it???? Would that get me banned. Oh wait it might be considered sexual arousal to have that image on as a T shirt because the age of female lego characters can't be determined and one of those poses could be construed as provocative, or worse could be considered illegal as extreme porn images because of the weapons and uniforms, kinky. So I would be arrested for that... and one of the cops has a gun in his hand. Which would clearly get me banned under the "toys with guns get you banned law."
Mines the one with, "I must have taken too much drugs.. this can't be the world we live in." on the back.
OK, now you've done it!
I usually find the PlayMobil dioramas mildly amusing, but this one had me laughing out loud (and disturbing the sleeping family).
Well done, El Reg!
...and it's not yet Friday. We've got playmobil on a Tuesday. Nice job Lester.
you have me giggling like a loon now and getign funny looks from my colleagues!
Made my day
Lester, you just made my day!
Keep the great work coming...
...and where does Optimus Prime sit on a transatlantic flight? Anywhere he fucking wants. Take that, sky marshalls.
Ahhh! The wonders of playskool toys... and it ain't even Friday!
Really could do with some blood splattered around the concourse.
Not only that...
but they've totally failed to notice the REAL Transformer lurking in the background!
Paris? Because she basically has a million times as many brain cells as these morons!
Is it friday already?
This is unfair, publishing Playmobil reconstructions of popular news items on weekdays is not good enough.
I can just about allow myself to spend all day on Friday pressing F5 waiting for these highly entertaining tableaux - but i fear for my job if i get caught on a tuesday doing the same stunt
i take it back
the hound has been spotted, I was clearly blinded by the new commoner criminalization system t5 has incorporated
Is it Friday allready?
and when is b3ta back online?
Can you do a t-shirt version?
Someone should definately get that printed onto a front of a Tshirt before their next flight...
Paris, because she'd wear a loose fitted one to hide her 'assets'
Hooray for the Playmobil!
Them pesky Al-Qaeda types get more cunning by the day.
Wasn't Optimus Prime one of the good guys/robots? Mind you, I can well believe that Megatron runs T5, and then OP would be well-justified in blowing the cr*p out of it.
Airport Security = MORONS
I'm sure that I'm not the only one that is fed up with the continuous moronic behavour of airport security plods around the world. Stupid stupid stupid. Like the 5-hours it required to sort out that infant with the name on The List. It's time for 500 people to show up all wearing similar T-shirts. Shut down the friggen system.
PS: Didya hear about Ted Kennedy? He's fine, except (with part of his brain removed) he woke up a Republican.
Could've been better
If you had mentioned that the woman being ordered to the floor had been seen with a 101ml container of water.
Would've totally completed the awesome pic ... it would be even funnier if it didn't ring home quite so loudly :/
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA
HA HA HA HA HA *snort* HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA *giggle* HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA *Mecha-Barbara-Streisand* HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
That is all.
b3ta is back online - in IP format - 18.104.22.168
Also - bloody good work.
But is this perhaps just evidence that you are suffering withdrawal symptoms following the temporary loss of b3ta?
Re: Dog Teams
"I've stared at the picture for 2 minutes and I can't see a dog. My work colleague says they can see it but won't tell me where. Is there really a dog?"
Look for the upturned chair, the dog is between the legs of the chair and the cargo container of weapons of mass destruction.
I see the Moderatrix gave up her handcuffs for the duration of this photo shoot...
We need more El Reg stuff in the media!
Think of how much better the world would be with a satirical diorama rather than Eastenders!
I suggest the formation of the Playmobil In Mainstream Papers campaign! Alternatively it could be known as PIMP My Read...
I agree *nod nod* this sh*t be funny....
And yep theres one dog...
i'm just wondering what will happen
if i go wearing my
"smoking leads to heroin addiction, paedophilia and suicide bombing" t-shirt to T5?
anyone want to pay for a flight for me to try? !
Thanks my productivity levels were reaching dangerously high.
Was he there because he heard Megatron was going to try to sneak through customs on a shirt?
One of the best photos I have seen in ages.
Why would al-Qaeda be flying plutonium to Iran?
Re: "dog teams "
Well, who do you think is holding the camera?
That's not a pirate
It is obviously a highway man, cos pirates aint afraid of showing their face, or is this a female muslim pirate
Why are pirates caled pirates.............
Cos they Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!
I love it....
Coffee and The Register's Lester Haines to start the morning.
Re: Re: Dog Teams
I would suggest that the camouflaged dog is the least of his worries, from appearing behind the green scanner it looks like a panda is walking towards them.
I was a bit lucky then
As aI flew to turkey the other week wearing my lego star wars T-shirt (i know, the geek police are staking out my house right now) with has Good ol' darthy boy and obi battling it out with (shock horror) "Light sabres"!!!
Could you imagine the the impact on T5 "security" staff?
There are errors here...
1) No fashion nazis, old ladies and complaintards baah-baahing the choice of T-Shirt from the sidelines
2) Al Qaeda guys would NOT ship to Tehran but to Saudi Arabia
I think you will find him taking a waz behind the upturned chair.
Shame Play Mobil doesn't do Rubber Gloves :-)
