Someone somewhere has uploaded the whole of a 1985 Argos catalogue to the internet.

It's great to look through all the tech pages, toys and games systems that were state of the art back then and read the descriptions for them.

Check this out

I loved those little microdrives, even though they had to be hit every 5 minutes to actually work.

and this - I had that Donkey Kong and Tomy one.

and I had all those Transformers .

Ah, the memories.

Just finished watching '100 Greatest Toys with Jonathon Ross.' Brought back some fantastic memories, but it was also quite traumatic. Can't believe I was so obsesssed with certain toys!

I watched that too. I wasnt surprised with Lego at number 1. I love it. When i was younger i use to have a HUGE box full of it. Id spend hours on it. I wish i still had it today. Im getting my kids Lego for xmas. Honestly it is for them :P

Have got that Millenium Falcon. The only thing I ever wanted for about 5 years was that AT-AT Walker. I never got one.

One of mine had that and we've still got it in 'pristine condition' in the attic....along with original Transformers, Action Man etc etc. (Spotted the boxes when I went searching for Crimbo decorations) :)

P.S. As a regular/moderator, I would have thought you had got to grips with using 'links' by now :(

My primary school used to have that Pac-Man board game for some reason...

And I remember having that Toy Box Seat (247, 31)

Thanks, I remember owning the ATAT and the ATST (scout walker) but being envious of my friend who owned most of the other things.

What a great topic to start the morning with! These are so nostalgic. I definately remember having #12, and number #18 (the Grandstand); such memories! And who can forget Guess Who? Come to think of it, I think I also had that walking AT-AT on the Star Wars page. Sort of wish I still had, now!

Brilliant post, I love to be reminded vintage toys and games like that.
