I had these when I was a kid. Full Circle and the View-Master gadget for Christmas '80. Then Castrovalva a year or so later. I also had a Superman The Movie one. Anyhow, this clever fella on Twitter has been tweeting about 'em. Happy memories...

Tried to buy one of the sets from two old biddies at a car boot sale back in the day, but as I was still a schoolboy I only had a small amount of cash and they weren't prepared to haggle over the price!

Now that we all know about the rude bits, aren't they rude? And as we get older, they get ruder and ruder. :oops:

Forgot to mention that I also had The Black Hole. Here's a piccie of one of those View-Master slides. Squint a bit to get that 3D effect but mind you don't get a headache!

Anyways, I see ol' LarryCat's tweeted saying the Castrovalva View-Master pictures will all be on the S19 Blu-Ray release, as part of the Photo Gallery or something.

Could only find a few pics online from the Full Circle one. Seem to remember it had a real good'un of the Marsh Spiders (the 3D effect that is).
