Hey russian foxy, glad to seeyou loved ice planet so much, it was my fav theme obviously! I didnt like the newr space sets as much, but felt bad about that, I think thry would be awsome to have now, I only have 80's to 90s stuffs -.- missed out on exploreres and the alien ones like these.
Ah. I never had the Saucer Scout as a kid. I have it now, as you can see in the pic, but back as a kid, I didn't have it. I had its big sister, the Saucer Centurion. The Saucer Centurion is directly behind the Saucer Scout in the pic.
I couldn't remember the names off hand, but Google is your friend in trying times. I had these: 6811 Pulsar Charger 6833 Beacon Tracer 1887-1 Scout Patrol Ship and another that I can't find a picture of. I remember it because it had a 4x2 stud brick that also had studs on the two longest sides. Blew my ten year old mind! Boy, looking through all these Lego pics makes me want to go buy some Lego or see if my mom's still got my old stuff somewhere.
Oooh, not bad at all. *nods* I myself never had 1887-1 Scout Patrol Ship or 1479-1 2-Pilot Craft. Then again, I never had half the stuff I have now as a kid...so who knows what might happen in the future. X3
[link] Any and all sets you ever wished you could have can now be yours. Bricklink is a place where Lego collectors the world over can buy and sell parts, pieces, whole sets and anything else they might need. =3
A looong time ago. 1990. Space and Race are my two favourites and the center of my collection, but there are a number of kits from various other series as well. I prefer kits from before 1998. I still collect, yes. Not nearly as extensively as I used to, but I still do.
Oh, I started my Lego hobby just 4 years later than you, when I was 8. They were not sold in Russia yet, so my mom used to bring them from Poland. Yes, and I adore Space sets as well, old ones especially. Among the newer ones I like Star Wars and Harry Potter series. Not long ago I purchased a rare Royal Knights Castle (#6090)...
Ah. So we're about the same generation then. =3 I still have my Royal Knights Castle. Got it for Christmas the year it was released. Its stored away in a box...too big to be put out on display with what little room I have.
These were the three sets that I never got into. Maybe it was decided I was too old or something. I did end up with quite a few old school space sets before that happened. Along with a number of town/city sets. Out of the later space themes, I did end up getting just a few of the Futuron sets.
Call me nostalgic, but now I do sort of miss the design creativity they put into some of the older space sets.
That could very well be. You're a bit older than I am, so these were likely the last generation of sets you took notice of.
Futuron is actually the first theme from the Space series that wasn't just generic Space, meaning the sets had a specific colour scheme, and followed a basic pattern (spies, exploration, communication, etc).
I do too. Most of today's sets are more like Duplo sets really. The sole exception is the Galactic Enforcer of 2010. Its built like the big spaceships of old, with a staggering 850 pieces. It almost seems like Lego made it as a "last hurrah", the "swan song" of the big spaceships.
