I remember building it exactly as it came: a nice, friendly little moon explorer, picking up samples of rocks and rolling around.

It didn't take long before the white and red guys were enemies and fighting it out, of course. >:-)

Oh, that was a great set.  I still have mine in a dusty old Classic Space box.  Great set!  I loved the use of the green translucent pieces.  I used mine to create some Battlestar Galactica scenes.  Do you still have it?

One of my first sets (and I have a Christmas picture with it somewhere), was the Brick Yard:

My first set was Universal Building Set #113.  I had a couple of Classic Space sets as well, then a pirate raft and then a long, long dark tunnel that ended the day I bought the #7130 Snowspeeder.

I don't even know what set was my first one, but ONE of the first could have been this one: 1592 - Town Square.

I did share the sets with my brother in our childhood so I don't know what did belong to whom, but on my gallery there are two more I have got. The others have to be photographed when there is time...
Some of the sets are missing lonely parts...

Sorry about that.  I thought we had discussed the topic a while ago, but thought we'd revisit.

A red biplane back in '94.  My parents keep saying that it was the worst $10 they ever spent; I've been hooked on Lego since.  This year alone, I've shucked out over $3000 on Lego.

Boy that was good. Figs, accsesories, parts, and just plain fun! Too bad I don't have that hip anymore. I would have sunk it with cargo from my lego Harbor. >:-) Although I still never found out how Johnny could pull that ship with that tiny little chain...
My first Bionicles were Tahu and Lewa mata. Good times...

Have I never posted in this thread?

Before I really started with lego I already had some fabuland and before duplo, but than I not recognized Fabuland as lego.

for example:




when I was on Holiday my mom found a little knightsoldier from lego under my bed, forgotten by an other child. I liked him so much I got 2 other small sets with soldiers and a merchant (I believed it was a merchant) not long after that.



those were the days *wub*
