Have you got start and finish years for those mags? Remembered Arcade but didn't have running dates.

Not off the top of my head. I think Total ran from 1991 until 1996. But don't quote me on that.

You have neither "Your Sinclair" or "Amiga Power"? Therefore, your poll is invalid.

Do you actually want copies of the mags?

Not sure on running years, but I have complete sets of Saturn Power, Official Saturn Mag & Official Dreamcast Mag in the loft.

I also have every EDGE and GamesTM, but they're not retro and complete sets are probably really easy to come by.

There's a few CVG issues from 1994 and 1995 I can't seem to find on eBay or download if you have any.
