Bigtrak, if you don't remember, was an amazingly cool-looking 6-wheeled tank that you could programme yourself to move around whilst firing its photon beam. Happily, not much has changed with this new version, which means you can not only relive the fun you had as a kid but, if you've got children of your own, pass it on through the family.

A few simple instructions can make your Big Trak go forward a certain number of lengths, fire, and then come back to you. The onboard memory will store up to 16 commands in one go, which means you can easily have your faithful tank-servant completing some complex manoeuvres in no time.

Big Trak comes with all the necessary black/red/yellow stickers that made the original so distinctive in the 1980s. So whether you're looking for a cool gift for kids or you’re on a nostalgia trip Big Trak is Back!

One of the greatest toys of the 80s reissued.
Programme your Big Trak to drive around the place and fire photons.
Pre-Programme up to 16 different commands in one go.
360 degree turning.
Maximum length of one move is 99 lengths (one length = 33 cm).
Loop function allows you to repeat sequences.
Blue light photons.
Comes with stickers to decorate it with.
Requires 3 x D batteries (not included).
Suitable for ages 6 years +.

If you get a kick out of pre-programming a remote control car then yeah it's great. If you want to actually control a remote control car as it's moving then no, it fails. Sorry but it simply wasn't 'amazing'. It was/is BORING!

looks coool.wish had this deal before valentine day,no nt to gift hubby.but my son. it ws his birthday. would have worked bothways though, :p heat added.
#5
I got my son one of these for xmas as well. doesn't even work. at first it would go backwards and forwards, but refused to turn left and right. Now it does nothing.
#6
hot cos of the price but ultimately a **** toy that is destined to get dusty at the back of cupboard or pushed around by the kids...lol
#7
I bought one for a family memeber at Xmas and it gets played with lots - both by children and grown-ups, we're waiting for the to be released trailer now to completely re-live our childhood.
Agreed, the programming isn't complex, but for young children to learn some basic programming, it's brilliant fun.

I loved this as a kid - all the negative comments on here are from people born into a world of high tec. Too many parents spoil there kids with x-boxes etc...tv's in thier own rooms... get a grip people and enjoy a classic retro toy iof you can drag yourselves away from your i-phones and playstations.....

They were crap in the 80s, why bring this back?

Got one of these for Christmas, from an overly nostalgic relative. Its certainly NOT worth £20. I'm surprised to see they see it for more than £8. There's so little to it in terms of parts and manufacturing. And as has already been said, it has very little novelty value.

Incidentally mine also stopped working properly after a while. Maybe it was just the batteries, but I never had the interest to change them and try new ones.

My advice, stay away ;-)

wow so much negativity towards this... i think it's a great deal.

This was crap 20+ years ago, more so now.
#13
My mate got one at xmas i dont think he has actually used it and the build quality is really poor if you like retro toys its a must if you was too young first time round i wouldnt bother with it tbh.

They were great in 1979 when they were first available though :)

Was it a "Bigtrak Jr." you were bought?

I do not understand why you think the larger item is not worth £8 for manufacturing/production costs, packaging, & retailer profit on top.

wolud be fun but you are limited to aprox 20 movements, makeing more complicated tasks unachieveable!
#18
Emulating it exactly was an oversight IMO - 16 commands was never enough and these days we should have the memory for 100's of commands.

I won't be upgrading (I still have the original+trailer on shelf).

If it's not the little robot that looked like a Smartie, it's not to my liking.

Yes as my husband showed them how to work it, novelty soon wore off and they became bored very quickly, they cant be bothered doing the programming etc, they want it instant - also being 2 and 4 years old,they would rather play with the remote control helicopter!

Well, yes, you bought the wrong product as a toy for the current ages of your children.

An advisory age of "8+" is stamped on the packaging of the newly available product.

It doesn't make it a waste of money for others though.

If you have an Apple handheld gadget that supports "apps", maybe this free download will be better value for money:

I like remote control helicopters too. Unfortunately one of my kids broke mine in an over-ambitious ascent followed by a rapid descent after meeting a low ceiling.

Not Mr Smash no. It was the same idea of the Bigtrak, but it was like the same shape of a giant Grey Smartie.
