    I didn't notice this in the thread so far - way before remote control we had - bigtrack, 14 forward, 8 right, reverse for the trailer...erm I'm not sure it ever actually worked but it was fun all the same. The ones you can buy these days are much smaller, or I'm bigger lol!

    Great thread!
    I always wanted a bigtrack after continuously watching the adverts on Children's itv, and they rereleased for sale not long ago as a retro toy, but I couldn't justify buying one now, plus it was a stupid price aswell.

    I loved my Transformers and Lego aswell back in the day.

    I also have an almost complete one of these in its original box in my loft, paid a tenna for it 25yrs ago!

    We had the SUPERTEN cartridge (Pong/tennis, hockey, basketball, etc), KNOCKOUT (Breakthrough game variants) and my fave STUNT RIDER (cr@ppy motorcycle games). Luckily there were only 4 TV channels that my parents couldn't watch while we played this

    speaking of telly!
    i can remember when television used to be good!
    saturday night tv was quality! chips, the fall guy, game for a laugh etc, way way way better than all this celebrity, phone in to vote ****** these days!
    and while i am on the subject, what was the kids tv all about in the summer holidays? i mean,'why don't you'? what a load of bobbins that was!
    but then again, we had mr ben, pigeon street, rhubarb and custard and the magic roundabout, the moomins, the wombles, jamie and his magic torch etc to equal things out! lol
