EDIT: I found it.
I also found out that it isn't even DUPLO.

i used to love building it & changing gears, watching the engine working & then dismantle to build the other kit you could make with the set!
however i sold it 2 years later to get a sega megadrive!
though i loved lego & building things (usually with imagination & not sticking to instructions) i never bought another set. that was until 2008 on our first trip to disneyworld & i entered the lego shop at downtown disney!
that was the first time i'd ever seen lego star wars! i fell in love! they had the 10179 millennium falcon for $400 (£200 back then!) which i drooled over but knew it wouldnt fit in our suitcases!
i got a few star wars small kits after that & after returning to disneyworld in 2009 to get married, i still had £300 of spending money left so when we got back i got the 10179 off ebay! :)

Before that though, other sets had been bought as "group gifts", so they belonged to everyone. That was my first personal set :)

UCS does not mean 'Ultimate Collector Series', it means 'Unavoidable Cash Sucker'.

Definitely a 5/5.

Still have that "minifig" sitting around
Ha! I just spent several minutes on Brickipedia trying to ID this set! I think this was my first (non-Duplo) lego too! My first build-with-instructions set was probably 6592 Vacation Hideaway. It's been built and dismantled many times over the years...
