Skyfall Casino Royale was great though. :(


I concur.

Those £5 packs of Spice Girls pics at the local newsagents. :wub:

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

I thought casino royale was decent and Skyfall was great but to me quantum of solace is hands down the worst bond film ever. I do miss proper over the top gadgets and a sense of fun though.

Quantum of Solace started out decent enough, but then it just didn't seem to really go anywhere.

I have heard that the writers strike that year affected production.

I think I saw Milkybar ones in Iceland yesterday, they might be similar?

Not the same :( Some shops and supermarkets import them but they're a pain to find.

Lego boxes that had little individual compartments so that when you took a model apart you could sort it by piece types for easier reconstruction later.

Video shops are the main thing - I really miss rental stores only for the feeling of walking away with a game you knew you'd never be able to play otherwise for a few days.

I also liked Cadbury's Tasters, but I could only ever find them in overpriced vending machines - most recently the 2012 Olympics.

Pre-release hype for new Michael Jackson music videos.

On that note we no longer get pre-courtroom Michael Jackson hype.

Tesco sell them in the Polish section

Chocolate bars I miss - Mars Delight, Fuse, Cadbury Marble, Secret, I am sure there are more I have missed but Secret was my favourite, I also like these biscuit things that had chocolate in the middle but I can’t think what they were called

Also walkers crisps when they had pictures on them

Get on my level you povs.


This was one of my favourite toys as a kid. I also had the dragon island. The detail on that was awesome, even had glowing eyes.

Do toys like this still exist for kids? I guess they are aimed at around 8 to 10 year old's, but no idea what kids toys are like these days.

The mag deserved it's fate for not printing anything i ever submitted to them (unlike NGC/Gamesmaster where they would often include my stuff).

Going by the packaging, these just look like Starburst, which they still have here in North America...
