Back to the 70s... Pocketeers were ace! They were small, handheld mechanical (rather than electronic) games.

I used to like the driving one. It was *incredibly* simple but fun!

I'd forgotten all about Manta Force. Good call!

I still have all my Boglins. I've got loads of mini and baby ones, plus a fish one with big eyes that squirted water. I still get regular use out of my original Boglin too. My eldest son is terrified of the thing so I hide it in his room at every opportunity.

How about Were Bears!

You've got me started now. I've promised my mum I'll sort through some of my old stuff in her loft in the next few weeks. Might be quite interesting to see what's up there.

My first remote control car:

I remember the aerial snapped at the base so I opened up the remote and replaced it with a straightened-out big paperclip. Worked perfectly 8-)

This was a personal favourite of mine though until I ruined it trying to make it fly out of the attic window.

I remember crying one Christmas when my mum bought me Bebop and Rocksteady, but none of the Turtles.

"I thought you already had the Turtles?" She said.

Oh that Turtles blimp! I loved it.

^I remember my sister having that Ghost Castle game, but we'd lost some of the bits when I tried to play it.

Bloody loved this when I was a kid. I had a bunch more like the MASK Rhino truck and the VENOM Outlaw truck. Always been some of my favourite toys. I thought MASK cleverly mixed the GI Joe and Transformers concepts.

I had the space invaders one. I could never experience the 3d effect as my face wasn't big enough, so I used to close one eye :fp:


I had the racing game one, loved it but it always gave me headache.

I came in here to post that! Obviously not rare, but I loved it so much. Did your mum take the ectoplasm out of the box so you couldn't ruin the carpet too? :cry:

My wife and I are planning our trip to New York soon, and I don't think she understands why the real building is at the very top of my list of sights :datass:

I had the blue one (Leoric) and my brother had the brownish orange one (Cyndarr) which he lost on Christmas day.
