A vintage toy display (all most all Star Wars for some reason) at the Glasgow Transport museum. And no, i don't have any idea what these were doing there either. :?

That is awesome.

My local TGI Fridays has a Millenium Falcon on the wall. Only thing is they've put a screw right through the middle!!

This is jogging the old memory bank... I remember that game above the ZX Spectrum :D A great display, a real feast for the eyes.

My mate sent me a picture message when he went down there earlier in the year - "here you like SW, check this out"
It was definitely a bit random! and totally wasted on him!

SW link, Space travel. It's a great looking collection and a ZX Spectrum 48k, my first computer. Anyone for Horace goes skiing :D

Good call, Mumbo :lol: I had to draw a 'flowchart' in my computer class (BBC Micros all round, kids) in my last year of school (1984), to demonstrate how to make a cup of tea. Not content with going down the traditional route of stencil and arrows, I illustrated a step by step guide using Horace as the protagonist... complete with pixelated edges. Took me bloody ages :?

I think we once spent all day coming up with funny Horace games... :oops:

Martin the Horace obsessive :lol:

There's no chance of that Spectrum working, it was never the same after one of us hit it with a hammer :roll: Can't remember who though :wink:

I played Skull on an emulator recently.

Still absolutely **** it when the skull appears round the corner. :eek:

The game makes more sense playing it as an adult but I still have not got a clue what its about. :lol:

Cool 8) Everyone's got an At-At except me :cry: There's a similar thing in Edinburgh, a toy museum. Only thing is it's a toy museum with not a single piece of vintage SW in it. ****ing shite. They did have a Raleigh Burner though 8)

Yes, i've been there too. They have a tiny little window with vintage 70s and 80s stuff but no Star Wars. :?
