Word.

I picked space, but I really prefer the classic free form stuff where I usually just end up building whatever random things come out of my crazed mind.
Nik Chaikin Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
See, I'm not great with legos so I need the guidance the sets provide.
Andrea Krause Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
I loved the space stuff with the opening and closing cockpit windows and all that fun stuff. :)
Joe Navratil Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
I was such a fan of the space stuff that, years later when I bought REM's "Automatic For The People" on cassette the day it came out, my first thought was, "Hey, that's the same plastic Lego used in the yellow cockpits".
Talcott Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
Well, that's why I specified "Legoland System" as opposed to "Lego set" ;-)

Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
I"m with you, I never had any of the systems, the fun was starting off someplace and seeing where it would go. I picked space but that was because there was no choice "loved legos but not the systems."
Talcott · 16 years, 11 months ago
I'm a castle person now (in case my icon wasn't a clue), but growing up I had a bit more in the way of space and town.

lawrence · 16 years, 11 months ago
I liked the town stuff but never had much of it. I remember I had all the emergency services, though, which was good, because there were constant "fires" at the gas station and racetrack. that is, until the fire engines returned to the station and forgot to raise the garage door, crashing into it and "igniting" the firehouse....

I had a couple of the space ones and an early castle, but never enough to really do much with them.

we once made a really cheesy movie with the race track, though - we used the camcorder and kept it running for 2 seconds at a time. one scene came out great, but the rest was kind of choppy. and then we lost the tape.

I had Lego. No land, no system. Just blocks and the occasional axle.
renita Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
I had just regular old legos too, with some special bits from other sets that we inherited.

but then we gave most of our lego away, because my sister and I didn't play with it anymore, and then, like a few months later... Garrett was born.

So, once he got into lego we had to rebuild the stockpile. We had some stuff that we missed when we did the clear out... but yah, and for him, I bought mostly space system stuff.

Not so much because that's what he wanted, but because that's what I wanted to play with ;->

because you know, he always wanted some "help"

same here. but i was jealous of my friends who had the castle.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
That's because Carey means near the castle. That or love. So naturally you love castles.
Mamalissa! Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
mee too.

Erector set....I don't even know 'er!
100% dainty! Back · 16 years, 11 months ago

squuuueeeaaal!! :)

Erect or set? I'll take the erect!

Magical Bob · 16 years, 11 months ago
I had castles. All the way. I am a special case though. You see, this one guy my family knew was going away to college right about the same time I was getting into legos. SO, he gave me all of his old ones from when he was a kid. SO, I ended up with really old, cool legos and because he gave me all of his, I had double the amount of legos that all my friends had! I used to love the castle sets. I would build a castle and then have huge battles and stuff on rainy afternoons. Memories...
emilie is CRANKY Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
word to castle sets, y0. i had two phat robin hood castle sets when i was a kid. i think i still have them somewhere... i rememberstill playing with themwhen i was about 16. :D
Talcott Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
Only sixteen? ;-)
Annika · 16 years, 11 months ago
I knew this was a Talcott survey the moment I saw "lego"
danced with Lazlo · 16 years, 11 months ago
Like many here, I never had any of the systems, just the legos. We built houses and contraptions that made no sense. My cousins had the castle set all over their playroom though and I was always intrigued by it... so i guess I'll vote castle. Really though, the free form lego was awesome.
100% dainty! · 16 years, 11 months ago
It's all about the pirates!!! I got the huge ship for christmas when I was little and it was the coolest thing EVER.
nate... · 16 years, 11 months ago
what about the Technic systems??

I preferred just the standard blocks and such... no system at all... but... if I had to pick a system, I'd go with the Technic ones, no doubt about it!




Josh Woodward · 16 years, 11 months ago
I've always been a road and building geek. The castle set was cool, too. I never had much interest in space or pirates.
dave "buh" Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
Let me guess, you had Girder & Panel kits as a kid?


I always thought the Lego "Expert Sets" were cool but i never had any of them. Too expensive.
Pentecost Andrew! · 16 years, 11 months ago
If y'all haven't seen this one yet, hold on to your heathen socks:

hahaha

oh man, I'd forgotten about that.
danced with Lazlo Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
Dude, the lego burning bush is my LJ icon!
goovie is married! Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
so *that's* what that is!
dave "buh" Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
then, there's this lego church. Quite impressive.
Nick Collins · 16 years, 11 months ago
Pirates and castles! actually, I am a history freak so when I used to own legos I would combine castle and pirate lego dudes to create the conquistadors of America and relive the great Cortez/Aztec conflict with the primitive Native lego dudes!
hehehe, I am such a loser
danced with Lazlo · 16 years, 11 months ago
Capsela?
lawrence Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
yup. I begged my parents for the advanced sets because the one they got me didn't have ALL the cool pieces. (I think they're glad they didn't buy them, though, because I only ended up playing with the stuff for a few months anyway. then I went back to the legos)
nate... Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
hell yeah!!!

I loooved capsela.

:D
Adam Hartfield Back · 16 years, 11 months ago
Capsela was THE BEST. My aunt gave me a set when I was 8 or 9 and I adored it. Gosh, it was fun!
Beth · 16 years, 11 months ago
What a great poll! I have such love for legos, I do.

At first, I had only plain old legos. I used to make cool houses and such (with balconies, always with balconies), but then my imagination floated away, and I became reliant on the systems and directions.

I loved the space stuff, especially for the hingey pieces and the yellow windows and such. I had a spaceship that carried a little box behind it with a magnet and one where the front of the ship could be removed from the rest, like a little escape pod. ^_^

I loved the castles best, especially because of the horses and the wagons you could attach to them. And the wizards.

The Harry Potter sets are pretty rockin' and rollin', too. I have a couple very small sets of those. Dumbledore looks suspiciously like the old school castle-set wizards. :)

Those girly legos never really took off, eh?
Adam Hartfield · 16 years, 11 months ago
My company is owned by the family/company in Denmark that started and still owns Lego.

We haven't gotten any cool toys, though.
