    All my LEGO® is in a big bucket in the garage, my favorite regular LEGO® set I had was this one. [​IMG]

    It could detatch into four seperate parts and rearranged.

    I had that one as well. LEGO is just hands down the greatest toy ever invented.

    I still have my box of it upstairs in the attic, should add more to it if I ever get the money. Bought some technic kits last year, great fun.

    For me? My imagination. I live in the sticks in SE Ireland, not affluent and didn't get a huge amount of stuff as a child, so I made things myself instead.

    Made a pulse rifle from Aliens out of wood (with working grenade pump-action) and just ran around the deer pens pretending to shoot all kinds of gribbleys. Used to build my own "Jurassic park" out of 6" concrete blocks and some small plastic dinosaur models :)

    Lego tecnics

    and

    My Raleigh Burner BMX

    So many adventures with both items, and I've still got a bike (albeit a motorbike) and my wife still buys me lego as a "stocking filler".

    Got to love that girl. She's so cool....

    Cool! Have seen how much these are going for on eBay? (Worth a mint at the mo!) I'm keeping hold of mine for a bit longer. :)

    Still remember looking round my house trying to find it before Christmas when my mum and dad weren't there.
