• With so many Lego fans in this forum let's share our childhood memories and grown up Lego projects here :).


    For me Legos always were my favorite toy. Dolls? Barbies? Cherry Merry Muffin? No way, I wanted my Lego Set for Christmas! And I was lucky enough not only to have parents who bought me Lego, they even bought perfectly low Lego tables for my room. So I could build whole landscapes without the need to put the bricks back in the boxes at the end of the day. It was my favorite corner of the room.


    My favorite themes where castle and space, but I also got some pirate and city sets. Most of the time I just played fantasy storys with the existing sets, but later I used the bricks to build things like the Jurassic Park buildings. When I grew older and moved out I told my mom not to give away my Legos.
    I admire people who use Lego to build real pieces of art, and maybe I will have my own lego room in a couple of years ;). Now I don't have room for this, but I started to collect mini figures as a little compensation. That's the Lego stuff I own. Nothing special, but I still love some of those old sets. Like the black castle.


    What about you?

  • When I played with Legos, I attempted to make houses, castle walls, etc when ever I played with action figures with my brother! It was sooo much fun when I was younger.
    *sigh* I feel all nostalgic now... :(

  • lego was my favourite toy from when i was little, i still use it today with my friends to make stop-motion films.

  • Heh, I know a site with the Bible stories made as Lego comics.... Yes, that was my inspiration for SPS Bible.... :P


    Anyway, I once collected Lego like mad, but my parents said that I have more important things, and was too old for Lego, and they packed all my collection and stored in my summer house... I had some of my favourite models and parts in Warsaw, but they went down to the basement.... :(
    One day, I'd like to retrieve them, and maybe buy some new sets, but for now, I have only a couple of small models and a couple of minifigs I managed to smuggle from our summer house back to Warsaw. Also I use very nice program Called Lego Digital Designer, but playing with virtual bricks isn't quite as satisfying as building in real....... :nono:

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken,
    Tochter aus Elysium!
    Wir betreten feuertrunken,
    Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
    Deine zauber binden wieder
    Was die Mode streng geteilt;
    Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
    Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

  • Being a child I hadn' too much legos. It was, and it is now, an expensive toy... But I kept them. I also get a fine bunch of blocks abandoned as trash that helped to restore some of my old sets and have received as gifts some new stuff from Star Wars.
    The minifigures bags are the 'new revolution' in lego, and as my sister likes them too and has begun to get them, I have adquired many of them... using barcodes and bump codes to get the desired ones. :D
    I have 18 minifigures (from bags), 2 troopers, 8 star wars characters, 5 minifigs from older sets of legoland and 3 'primitives' when they hadn's arms, legs and even face.
    I like very much the pictures taken of these minifigures in real scenarios... and I've began to take them when I have to make field-works in my job, trying to put them in the photos I have to made. Indeed, today I have put a photo with a stormtrooper that I made yesterday in a oficial document. :D:D:D (It almost can be seen, but if you are told about it you can recognize it) ... an he won't be the last.

  • Legos kick ass. It's a shame though, I see so many little kids who mentally can't sit there and put something together by looking at pictures, or just being creative and making up something because of their bullshit ADD or whatever. It's like they can't do anything that doesn't involve flashing, retarted characters, or mind draining advertisments being shoved down thier throats. It feels good to use Legos, just like Trey Parker was talking about how it's relaxing to sit thier and put something together step by step...

  • Those movies are awesome :). I made one myself some years ago, but it's really bad compared to those. It only took us one day. I can see if I still find the videofile somewhere.


    And I am really excited right now because I got my Easter gift! Well... it's something I paid for myself, but I won't open it till then ;). My fist Lego set in years. I love those annual releases because the houses show so much details and you can combine them to one big street.

  • Sigh, how i miss my own legos.... :( Maybe someday I'll get them out from my basement.... If my parents allow me....

  • My "Easter present" did not survive unopened till Easter... here are some pictures :). It was a lot of fun to build such a huge set! And the many intersting details are amazing. For example the "Pets" letters built with lego bricks, which are combined in different angles.
