Fact checking myself: Bob Holness presented the game show Blockbusters and not Countdown. I was so eager to get the James Bond trivia out that I forgot myself. Luckily I didn’t say he played the saxophone on Baker Street.

Necronauts ... predates League of Extraorindary Gentlemen, even, doesn't it?

Apparently not. LoEG is 1999, Necronauts is 2000. (Publication-wise, any road.)

It's that old argument again: art vs. popcorn, or Alien vs. Aliens. They're both good things - I'm never going to argue otherwise. Sometimes you feel like you want the popcorn more - it's an easier pleasure to digest. But for posterity, for what to take on the spaceship with you when society crumbles and we're headed out to the brink, you know what's more important.

Tricky. I didn't like Damnation Station much until the later series - it's a story that took time to find its feet, and wasn't aided by a disjointed art roster. A bit like The Ten-Seconders, in that regard.

Mazeworld is creatively consistent, and has great art (of course) by Ranson. Maybe its that I'd read The Bridge (Banks 1986), but I just found the storytelling dull - despite the lush setting.

I would say Mazeworld's crime is indulgence whereas Damnation Station is a definite tryer. Gotta vote for the definite tryer. Did the same in The Great Mush Rush. Didn't get me anywhere.

Depressing cart from my standpoint, mind. For me, Gremlin was all about the 8-bits: Monty Mole; Jack the Nipper; Trailblazer. And on Amiga, Lotus, Super Cars and Switchblade were tops.

Of the most recent announcements, Jaleco 2 most aligns with my likes – some quite good shooters and the excellent (if slow down prone) Rod Land. And Morphcat looks pretty solid too.

I really hope they start doing minifig-scale TF sets as well. If Hasbro can recognise the advantage on working with Lego, that’s got to be a good thing.

The effect on sales would be like 3D printing Energon Cubes from Zero Point Energy.
