Ho hai folks !

I love Lego and it seems that we have a few collectors on Neowin ( Minifig comes to mind ), so why not share your passion ?

I am the owner of these sets :

If you ask nicely enough I can try to put on a full assembling review with lots of pictures or try to do something in stop motion.

I loved lego gowing up. i never liked any of the sets though. I preferred the basic blocks and just went where my imagination took me. robots, spaceships, cars... endless.

Love Lego, though I very rarely play with it now; only when I get the odd Lego car set as a joke present for birthdays/Christmas. ;)

When we cleared out our loft a while back I found the massive box with all the Lego in. :D http://www.twitpic.com/gqgsj

Legos are awesome :) I have so many castle sets (old ones from about 15 years ago). I still have them in plastic bins waiting for my kids to be able to play with them :D

Oh man I used to play Lego sooo much!

I haven't pulled it out of the closet in probably 6 or 7 years though.. Maybe I should!

It's good to see that other people play it, sometimes I feel I'm too old to play with Lego :blush:

I used to have several dozen sets, large and small. Amounted to several thousand pieces all in a large box. Almost all of it was space ships, castles and vehicles. Gave it all away to a retarded guy about 20 years ago. I almost wish I was a kid again just to play with some of the new sets and parts, with all the electronics and such.

Didn't have that stuff when I was a kid. I had a little motor unit but that was it.

Technic (and Mindstorms) collector here for the past 20 years, (keeping boxes and instruction/packaging in mint condition)

3 of my favourite technic sets, maybe have 20 or so in total:

http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?q=8448_1&v=z

http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?q=8455_1&v=z

Also I have some 30+ lego sets that were "mixed up" and are mostly ~15 years in age, in the process of rebuilding them, they include some notable sets such as... http://guide.lugnet.com/set/?q=6285_1&v=z

Sadly most of these Lego instructions were unloved, but at least they are complete! Very time consuming sorting out this many sets, and finiding the odd pieces that are missing.

The main 6753 model is just awesome to build. I highly recommend it to your son ;) I never tought that this set could be so long and interesting to build and with the 2 B-models, I'm gonna play with it for some times :)

It's just sad that you can't find "basic" set of Lego now. It's all based on theme (space, city, creator, ...).

I remember when I was younger and playing with Lego, you could build almost anything, depending on how many pieces you had. Too bad I did not keep them.

Many happy memories playing with lego. My favourite set being the "yellow" train. Although quite disturbingly for a 10 year old I demolished it and built a missile train...
