    My brother (Megaman collector extraordinaire Shadowman) pointed me in the direction of these scans.

    AT-AT for £25!
    Soundwave for £10!
    Zoids!
    A-Team!

    Crazy how much things cost way back then. I know, inflation and stuff, but even so, I wish I could get me a new Sideswipe for a tenner!

    That is essentially the laminated book of my childhood - lots of toys I was either given as a child or got on ebay as an adult! :lol  I've still got Grandstand's "Caveman" electronic game, and it works too.

    Thanks for that little trip down memory lane. :)
