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

Still the most fun with LEGO is in the making rather than the playing I always found.
Sweeeeet, Trek and Lego.

I had a Star Trek Tracer Pistol, I believe it was called. It vaguely resembled a Trek phaser and shot little plastic disks. Very cool, or so I thought then- late sixties. The disks had aerodynamic properties not unlike a frisbie, which were all the rage then. The coolest thing was how you could ricochet and carom shots off walls. My brother and I could hit each other around corners this way! Haven't thought about that in years! Wow! I need to call my mom and point out to her how wrong she was. No eyes were ever put out by the things.

Did anyone else have the old SST toys? The ones that had the flywheel built into them. You'd pull the T handle out, which would rev up the wheel, and then you'd race 'em across the kitchen floor. I had the second set of those, which were the "demolition derby" set. They were specifically designed so that they looked like beat up old cars, and when you aimed them at each other, body parts would go flying in all directions...

If it weren't way too early, I would have suspected that it was a "Fast and Furious" tie-in...

I absolutely had a few of them! I think I actually had the older set. I liked the Dragster the best for some reason- If I remember, it made sparks and did a wheelie.
