People have many stories of how they got hooked on lego and most of them are all same the but I still have never seen something about someones very first lego set they ever got. My first was the lego Imperial AT-AT which I built very fast and it is still in perfect condition with every single piece exactly as I built it and I have no plans what so ever to scrap it for parts Permalink
The first Lego set I got was a Lego Basic tub, you know the red ones with 4 big studs on the lid.
I also remember in 2001 when Bionicle first came out. I was in a toy shop and did not really know what Bionicle was, other than it was Lego. So I bought a brown Borok but I found putting it togethter hard.
Also I got a mini set free with MacDonalds ages ago. A Lego Basic set, it had a strange creature with a blue pole that spins round his nose.
Some people have really old Lego from their parents, but mine never had Lego, so my oldest set is the one I first got. Permalink
