Something that I liked during the 1980's, was watching Saturday tea time Action pogrammes. Favourite was Knight Rider. Michael Knight and KITT. Michael Knight had an Evil Brother, who drove a Truck. Think his name was Garth?
Came across this LEGO Set, don't know if you can buy it. Would love to have it.

There is also a LEGO Set of The A-Team. Used to love the Van. Can remember someone living not far from me, having a Ford Transit Van. It was made up to look like The A-Team Van. Not quite the same!!!

I was subbuteo all day long and scaleletric,do kids still play them? I used to dream about building the huge 40k stadium which came on the boxes of the teams you could buy but I ended with something similar to Evesham.
Used to dream about one of those electric cars and being the cool kid on the block but never got one.

All I know is I'm sure glad that I grew up in the 80s/90s and not nowadays,not exactly a game but kids don't even play curby anymore!

I drove through Cam the other week & a couple of young kids were playing curby with what I assumed was their dad. It’s you Spanish lot I reckon, too busy having siesta’s!

Subbuteo football (I painted every team for the 1990 world cup including the goalies gloves!), Cricket and rugby too with the scrum box. Have boxed sets and stuff still in the loft. Not hockey though as they wore skirts. Striker set too in the loft - press the head to kick.

I had a Johnny seven gun, broke every health and safety rule possible. plastic bullets and missiles that could take out an eye. Have serious addiction to Airfix and Action man.Have hundreds of sets of airfix sets and Britain's got soldiers. Have loads of action man uniforms and stuff but when I was a kid only one action man so was like a fashion parade. The Lancer and Life guard with horse was awesome. Bought more since and need to start selling. It's very collectable and in great condition so valuable but only old gits like me are likely to buy. My nephews have never even made an airfix kit!
Have loads of the Waddington board games too. Needless to say my wife is barred from the loft and man shed.Also have the original Parker game Escape from Colditz,Dads army,Hallo Hallo, On the Buses etc.
oh dear I need to get out more.??
