Your First LEGO Set

235 posts in this topic

I got a good idea for a new sort of game thing.

My first LEGO set was:

first_lego_set.jpg

NAME: Eagle Stunt Flyer

YEAR: 1996 (yeah, I'm a little bit of a newbie compared to most people here)

RATING: *skull* *skull* *skull* *skull* out of *skull* *skull* *skull* *skull* *skull*

What was you first set? (roughly following the format in red)

I think. My brother and I got about 5 or 6 sets at the same time when my parents came back from a trip to Germany. This one seems most familiar.

Altenatively it was this one, which is still at my parents' how 35 years and two countries later. My kids have played with it.

Either way, my Lego love affair began in 1971. Probly before most of the people on EB were born.

No kidding? That is the first LEGO set I built (I received two sets) when I turned six. After that I was hooked. The other one is 6555: Sea Hunter.

But alas its not new... Read... How did you become interested in LEGO?

If everyone strictly follows my format in the red text it shall be different than that thread because many people went off topic without telling their actual first set (It's not worth going into the details) |-/

But if you really want I can change the disscusion topic in ths thread to "Did you own Duplo, and if so, what was your first set?" :-P

I suppose it would help to designate some guidelines. Any lego product or specific line of products because I had douplo and a fabuland set before system? I just don't remember the exact sets though.

I just guess the game aspect wasn't obvious to us or at least me.

I'm geussing just list and rate your first memorable set?

ps. I added a rating to my previous post and the only pic I found was probably to large to post here

I know my first lego product was a small chest of BASIC Lego. I still remember it... but Lugnet doesn't have it (and if it does I can't find it).

As for set... I really have no idea! I have a few I can trace back far... but none that sticks out.

Since oo7's thread is similar I suggest to continue here, "game-wise" or not :-)

and then my first system set:

Ready to cringe?

I sold the exxon figs on eBay when I was stupid, I mean younger...

That sound you hear is me kicking myself repeatedly.

X-O

i'm afraid many of us, early Lego fans, went through the same kind of experience, so you're not alone! :'-)

I can't remember very well what my first set was, but I think, and this will not surprise you, I think these two space sets were the first:

442

462

I don't know anymore which one i opened first. considering the fact that I got them for my birthday, and were probably wrapped in paper, i'd say the one with the largest box... :-P

Thank you! That does make me feel better...

Thank you phoinix, how could I forget my first Fabuland sets? Boy that airport was cool, huh?

This was my first Fabuland set:

121-1.jpg

followed shortly (all on Christmas morning) by this one:

137-1.jpg

:'-) I actually do get choked up and nostalgic thinking about it! Oh I loved those boxes! As a kid, even after I had built the sets, I would stare at those boxes for hours. I kept them all under my bed, I had a captain's bed, so there was a ton of room to store stuff underneath. I came home from school one day and my Mom had thrown all of the boxes away. Not even therapy has helped me to forgive her for that...
