This is the thread for discussing Toys and memorabilia not related to Star Wars.

Rules:

No talking about Star Wars toys, there is a section for that.

Don’t go off topic too much.

Have fun!

Subbuteo for me - was given a team of Liverpool players, a generic team for the opposition and made the rest up (pitches, goals, corner flags etc) out of whatever I had to hand or could use my imagination on. Doing a few household chores etc got me a few pennies so later bought a goal and a ‘proper’ pitch.

The rich kids had stands, and floodlights, multiple & special edition teams, refs, trophies etc - though always thought they lost out on something not using other fun non-subbuteo stuff first… 😃

All that went out of the window after this one Christmas…

Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
