These were some of the castle sets I remember having -
I had many City sets but strangely only kept 2 of the boxes XD, these 2 I still have with the boxes being in great condition -
Originally I really liked space lego and these were some of my sets from that genre (I still have these but without boxes) -
But my honest favorite was Train! After reading around for the last day about Lego I keep hearing that the 80's was the golden era of Lego train. Seeing the limited stuff available now I might agree. I remember a commercial on T.V about the Lego rail system and it sent me C R A Z Y. I still remember the jingle.. I even taped the commercial just to watch the trains in it over and over to get ideas for building.
But yeah I got this train still -
But also got that 12v Transformer Kit and all the electric railing with the converter piece for the train. I hated that 12v transformer because it cost mum heaps but died after about a month and my train fun was completely spoiled.
So anyways I really love Japanese Manga and I stumbled across the Exoforce range a few years ago. I bought so many of them lol, even the Sentai Fortress. Managed to pick up this Golden guardian guy on a trip to Japan, I'm glad I did now cause it seems harder to find this Exo stuff anymore. -
It's good to meet everyone here and yeah I'm right into train stuff. Just bought the 3677 Train yesterday along with the new station and extra tracks. Will be going back to mums house tomorrow to pick up my old 12v rail sets ^^ (Too bad the tracks arent the same anymore.. oh well guess i'll run them alongside separately). Also am going to try and find instructions off the net to fully rebuild the old 80's space sets.
I only really had 2 questions if anyone cares..
1. Is there a good website for instructions of those old 80's kits anywhere?
2. I was thinking of doing an overseas order from that Chowren Toys website for some old sets.. the prices seem a little too good and their description all mostly say the same thing - it made me suspicious, has anyone ordered through them?
I'm sorry if this was a long intro post and thanks to anybody kind enough to read it.
