I don't have the slightest clue what was my first set

Same here, although it may have been a blue jet I got in 1997 (can't remember the name). I started building with system legos about then, although I was playing with duplo in my 2's (Mom has pictures to prove it).  ;-)

I don't remember exactly what my first set was, but one of the earilest sets I can remember is 1463, Treasure Cart.

This one stands out in my mind mainly because I accidently dropped the minifig torso into a heater vent. (I was only 3. :-P) I got it out though. X-D

Hard to be certain since I was so young...

But I think it was 715.

Can't seem to find any record of mine. Anywhere.

But I do know that my first sets were two Ready Brek Promo items: a pirate raft and a castle catapult. Unfortunately, my parents didn't keep the box or the instructions  :-( . I probably wouldn't remember them if I saw them.
Yep, I'm back! Be afraid...

You are so young.

My first set, that I can remember, was this baby:

You posted the index link twice. Thanks to your description we know what sets you mean, though.

Use brickset or LUGNET for pics...

What about Bricklink, which I like better than the two above because of the set inventories. Peeron is good too, but even on my pretty fast computer it loads kinda slow.

BL is ok, too. If I just want to paste a pic I always use LUGNET, because it loads fastest. brickset loads very slow, BL is so-so, and peeron isn't the fastest either.

Because of this thread, I went through all my old Instructions, and I was WRONG.

It seemes that my first set was this ( now I actually remembering, having the parts, but not the set; it was released in 1964, and I was born in 1968, so I have been very,very young, I luckwise had a LEGOholic father)  *sweet*:

Probably this Basic set: http://guide.lugnet.com/set/350_2
But I think my parents had already bought me this System set, which I was too young to build:
http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6659
and my mom already owned this set, found in an Easter Egg:
http://guide.lugnet.com/set/621_1

When young, my mom had a little box of Lego pieces (bricks, plates, roofs, windows from 60s-70s), but my grandma gave it to her cousins!!  >:-(

i'm not sure... it was either the divers rocky reef refuge or the fright knight catapult cart....
Just returned from a 3 or so year dark age, so just getting back into the swing of things. :)

Wow, this thread is still active. Now that I look back again I see that not many the only ones who followed my templat at all followed it very strictly. The red was just to show the part of my post that described the information that one should put in their post. Most copied the red color itself. 8-|

Although, it's not that I haven't looked back at the older posts before, I'm just doing it agian now.

I'm being an idiot now.  :-$  :-D Bye.

Just to start a friendly discussion, what was your first Lego set?

I may have a picture of mine - I will look and share it if so.
