Holy crap, that's brilliant. Micro Machines were after my time a bit, but I can totally see the appeal.

The military micro machines stuff were so cool to play around with. I played a lot of RTS games back then (still do) so I used to play with them as if it was a real life RTS. The Army Men games helped too :shifty:

I had quite a few of those; again it was cool how everything that went on them could be kept inside the box when folded up. I had the toolbox and this:

strawberry float I had that too. For some reason I specifically remember that little wall in the bottom right more than any of the other bits. Don't know why.

Nope :cry:

Was hoping I could introduce my kid into the world of micro machines and that but they're no longer available!

I'm pretty sure I had a complete set, obtained through some fierce playground trading and negotiation.
