Cheers guys. This thread is really fascinating. I'm a graphic designer and love all that stuff, but I was too young the first time round to read and remember it (had the toys but never the magazines).

It's great seeing all the old advertising, it's adds to the nostalgia and appreciation of, what is quite literally an outstanding and unrivalled (IMO) packaging and product design line.

I've found four that I've kept, but might have some more tucked away.

Really think that these would look fantastic in frames.
