Still got mine. No box and it's all busted up. Plus the tank to tow it.

Even though I had a variety of different toys growing up my only toys I had as some sort of collection other than Star Wars was Action Man, lego, Britains space figures/vehicles and LJN Advanced Dungeons and Dragons figures.

That's about it other than various model kits but I did have lots of one off things like Bionic Man, Mego DR Who & Sprider-Man, A-Team, Zoids ect. Nothing comes close to my Star Wars figure collection at the time though.

I can still clearly remember the noise made by Astro Wars, used to love that game - although it was rare that my bro would let me use it

My toys were mainly hand-me-downs from my brothers, mostly Star Wars and a few Action Force. The first toys I remember seeing in shops and getting new on card were Batman (1989 Movie and Batman Returns). I absolutely loved the early Batman TAS figures as well, plus random Movie figures from Star Trek/Aliens/Terminator etc

Only had 3 SW figures.

My biggest collection of toys were Britains Farm items, then Britains soliders and the Airfix plastic soliders. Had an Action Man or two and a couple of tanks. Matchbox and Corgi cars.

Also remember fondly a Matchbox Space 1999 Eagle. I think I remembered it so well as I was severely ill post dental treatment under gas and hence part of the trauma offset! :lol: They had to keep stopping the Mk II Cortina so I could spu on numerous occasions.

I wanted one of those Eagles when I was a kid. My parents couldn't find one so they bought me the model kit instead. So, not only did I have to build and paint the damn thing but I couldn't play with it was it was done - my parents said it was too brittle. :roll: Left me permanently scarred, I tell ya! :wink:
