Lego! Firestation, police station, houses of all kinds, castles, helicopters, airports, moonbase, moon rovers, space ships of all descriptions, pirate ships, island forts...

Everything is there with Lego!

Damn! I remember that! That was a big toy too. Command module and engine section seperated to make the escape vehicle just like in the series.

I didn't have all that many Trek or Wars toys....but I did love my Big Trak....a programmable futuristic battle tank.

I had phasers, tricorders, USS Enterprise, Klingon D-7's and starbases all made out of the bits and pieces of LEGO I had amassed over my years as a kid!

Then I could demolish them all and build the Iris ship from Ulysses in the 31st Century!!

Then......on and on and on!!

If I am correct, all the LEGO stories we have are from a time BEFORE those pre-fabricated sets came out, where you knew what you were going to build before you even opened it. The real LEGO fans like us seem to be those who had nothing but generic pieces with nothing but our own imaginations as templates. We, are the true original LEGO generation!

Well, I had all the sets that were supposed to be built into specific things. I guess that was what was on sale when I was that age.

I just ended up cannabalising them to build my own stuff once I had built the intended results!
