I recently re-discovered the joys of my lego box after pulling it from the attic and thought i'd hit the bricks and see what came up. It truly is one of the most creative and ageless hobbies that free time has to offer.
Those of you who don't recognise the slogan in my title, i grew up in Australia in the 80's and this was LEGO's advertising catch-cry abck when we used to have a LEGOLand in SYdney at Birkenhead Point.. *sigh*
Space was laways my favourite genre: I was a big fan of Blacktron I (had the walker and the awesome batmobile styled tank/ ship transport) then migrated later to Blacktron II and Ice-Planet (briefly). I also had a bunch of Futuron kits including the Space Train!! (envy of the neighbourhood!)
I also collected Eagle Knights (followed by Dragon Knights) and a few Pirate/ Soldier kits with those oh-so-cool cannons. I went through a bit of Technic phase too, that big red helicopter being the highlight but then lego was hijacked by videogames and games workshop >.< - Until Now!!
