Never got my hands on a pair of these and that made them all the more desirable. They were 80 odd quid in 1990 which is ‚ā¨175.00 in today's money. Was obsessed with them for one summer.

Blink 182?  Maybe that came later.

Star Wars came out when I was 11 -- it was cool, exciting, cowboys in space, and none of the baggage it's accumulated in the 40 years since. Just a load of fun to see and to re-enact in the woods behind my house and that. The other super-cool film that summer was Smokey and the Bandit, made even cooler when my brother came home with black Trans-am and took me for rides in it.

NO.

The version with the LENTICULAR COVER was much cooler, and in an ace blue plastic box.

Xenon 2 on the Atari ST. When Id just turned 11 loads of slightly older girls lined up at a party where I was the only boy and forced me to kiss their chest areas, that could have been really cool but in reality just scarred me I reckon. When at 14 i suggested we all did it again they told me to fuck off back to my Space Orks.

A friend of mine got the first ever melody alarm digital watch. And better than that, the melody was same as the General Lee's horn from the Dukes Of Hazzard. (Actually it was 'Dixie' and he had to remember to stop it after the first few notes, but it was still way cool.)

That 'Dixie' alarm tune can be heard on the mix of Rock The Casbah from Combat Rock - Mick Jones had one of those watches and recorded it during the session (it was mixed out on the single version though).

Which was the first games magazine I remember reading with a sense of humour. I was a bit obsessive around that time and had a subscription, and when it was due to come out I'd spend an hour staring out of the window waiting for the postman to arrive, and was overjoyed if the magazine turned up. I was also bullied a bit at that age (unsurprisingly) but I remember the only time I was furious about it was when some twat ripped my copy when I was reading it one lunchtime. He's later became a crack cocaine and heroin dealer and ended up in prison, which pleases. No one fucks with Zzap 64. No one.

Also, for obvious reasons:

My cousin had this. It took about ten minutes to pump up and then shot its entire load in a split second.

Yeah - but we weren't listening to the The Clash by then. Not since The Jam's 'Absolute Beginners' knocked 'Kings Of The Wild Frontier' of the top of the Capital Hitline after 68 solid months at the top,
