I Gotz Lego!

Oh the joy from returning from a long hard days work to find my mummy had secretly been 'collecting' vouchers through the paper for FREE Lego. I had seen this weeks ago, but seems mum has collected 2 lots. One for me aged 28, and one for my nephew.

:cool:

They are very cool, kinda don't want to open them and leave them all in the box? but I'm itching to play with them, and see what I can create out of all the parts!

Ohhhhhhhh. :o

Very true! but as a kid I had so much of it from basic to star wars that all in all I created some awesome looking space crafts using it all.

I do remember a cockpit with opening wind shield that a lego man sat in, I used that on soooo many ships. Ahhh the memories.

W.T.F. I've just noticed I don't have all the packs! AARRRRRRGH Wait till my mummy gets up! If my nephew has the other packs they are being taken. He's too young to fully enjoy lego! :D

I agree to some extent. But some of the stuff you can do with Technic now is amazing - the new Mindstorms NXT is brilliant.

Is lego as good as the old original Meccano?

The reason i ask is that i had Lego technics and it was awesome, but then i discovered Meccano where you actually had to mechanically build something....man that really got me going when i was a kid (and secretly it still does it for me now)
