When we heard that the legendary Big Trak of our youth was coming back we couldn’t believe it. Big Trak, 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 chidren 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, which is rather nice in itself - but imagine how complex you can make it. 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 +.
Size:-
• H: 16 W: 23 D: 35 cm.

Ok if you're ordering anything else from the website though

Sorry like, but I had one of these back in the 80's when i was a kid, and they really weren't that good.

The novelty of having to program it to move became very tiresome.

I'm assuming these 'new' ones are the same, or do they have any new functions?

Only wish I still had mine incase it would be worth anything as an original!

Old models don't seem to sell very well on eBay, as people can get a new one for very little anyway, and they are the same design anyway.

Your comment got me thinking, I wonder what new moves they'd incorporate into a new version

maybe a michael jackson moonwalk possibly?

Or mabye the odd flip over!

Now, do I buy it for my child for christmas, or make my wife give it to me instead?

Wonder who'll play with it more.

I don't get why this has been brought back. It was rubbish then, it'll be even more rubbish now.

Save your money. Really not worth the hassle...

Ah, it's retro, retro stuff is good!

The rubik's cube is rubbish, but people still buy them.

Wispas are rubbish, but when they didn't make them anymore, people wanted them back again.

Big Trak Trailer available soon too, so will be able to send the drinks from the kitchen to the living room easier.

If this happens, I'm buying one. Carrying lunch from the kitchen to the living room often takes two trips. This would stop that!

I loved this as a kid and still have it. The trailer though was pants. Anything heavier than an Action Jack and it wouldn't tip. Love to the Big T.

Maybe they've fixed it on this one. Fingers crossed.
(_;)

This was great when it first came out. When I heard it was being brought back I was really excited - until I got my hands on one and discovered it's exactly the same as the original. Exactly. We more than 20 years down the line now and there's not even the slightest improvement in the technology - look at what Lego are doing with Mindstorms NXT.
I'm all for nostalgia, but let's be real - for what Big Trak offers compared to what could've been done with it, anything over £20 isn't really worth it, let alone a bargain.
