    More insanity...




    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    Yeah, technic is awesome. They also have architecture sets, including a blank generic set to build whatever you want.

    I had some Lego when I was young.

    However, my favourite building bricks were a lesser-known brand called Betta-Bilda

    I mention this because I bought some at a car boot sale last weekend, just for nostalgia purposes

    There were no specific 'theme' sets when I was a boy building with Lego. There were sets of various amount of pieces, but it was left up to your imagination as far as what to build.

    Apparently, no one has any imagination any longer and has to be told what to build with a specific set of blocks for a specific item.

    I liked the years of Lego Space from the 70's on. However I feel it's a bad thing that Lego is so attached to big media in modern times. It's all Star Wars, and other media. It was better when they had their own inventive space vehicles.

    Of course once the sets were had, I'd build my own things after building the set once hehe.

    I still have my Lego from then (blue and grey Space and some yellow technic and gears and whatnot ). Some of the pieces that are old are rather brittle.

    never was able to get this classic set

    There was a bigger mothership which I had which was pretty cool. I find it sad that Lego have ventured in computer games and movies to market their product. I get that not many kids would want to play with these types of toys anymore but it is still a sell out and odd crossover.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    Not to mention that you sell more and at a higher price if you give only a very specific set of blocks to build particular items instead of selling more generic sets...

    I grew up during WW2. There were not many toys around. Legos were unknown. I was fascinated building paper model airplanes and ships starting in 1948. Later I build flying airplanes made out of balsa wood. The motor was just a windup rubber band. Little I knew that I would make my living in the Aerospace industry years later.

    My 7 year old great grand son is a lego addict, all star wars stuff. It is incredible the way he build things. I cannot get him interested in anything else. Hopefully he is becoming an engineer.

    I used to play with Lincoln logs when I was a kid. I loved building things with those.
