Re: Screenshot challenge.

Yep, and it was going to be called Beastball. I remember going into Future Zone and asking when it was coming out, and they looked at me like I had ten heads.

Re: The return of Robot Wars

Unspoilery comments: - Waaay too much drawn-out talking / montagey business. Felt like about 15 minutes of battles and 45 minutes of 'hey, let's meet the team for the 6th time'. - If you are going to do a lot of talking, how about giving us a bit more of a history lesson on some of the robots/teams?...

Re: M.U.S.C.L.E Men

Had loads of these as a kid, potentially even close to a full set as my brother and I made a concerted effort to collect them all. Wonder if they're still up in my parents' loft somewhere...
