    MOC: The Love Boat

    Absolutely fantastic. The detail is awesome. I especially liked some of the rooms, like the hospital, nursery and my favorite, The "Poseidon Adventure" room, complete with fixed chairs on the ceiling and an upside down Xmas tree!!

    100 Greatest Toys

    On the actual TV coundown, when they revealed Nintendo at no.4 they specifically talked about Super Mario Brothers. I've watched it back on 4OD and its not that clear if they are talking about the console or the actual game. Channel 4 "Greatest" lists never give an accurate reflection of what is most popular (apart from Lego of course!) I didn't vote for this list but I have voted previously and they normally have a pre-selected list that you can choose from, so really this is only a coundown of the pre-selected list chosen by Channel 4.

    100 Greatest Toys

    Barbie and Hot Wheels were way down the list, although both toys are very American and this was a UK poll
  10. Like we didn't already know it, but Channel 4 in the UK has just done the countdown of the 100 Greatest Toys, and Lego has come out at No.1! Monopoly was second.

    What was your first major City/Town building?

    1970 - 1979 It was actually 1979 and I had the 675 snack bar set Unfortunately I no longer own it as I sold most of my early Lego sets on e-bay about 6 years ago

    Don't worry, they're only plastic!

    Very sick but absolutely fantactic at the same time. Building is great and some good attention to detail. Love the use of the snakes for the animal guts, and the pigs hanging from the hooks! Need I say more!

    Review: 8404 Public Transport

    Road sweepers usually have the driver sit on the opposite side of the cab than normal vehicles so they can see the kerb as they are sweeping.

    Review: 8403 Family Home

    Great review - this is a very nice set, I would have loved this when I was 10 but I'm not sure yet if I will add it to my collection. Some of the details in the review and the close ups are excellent so many thanks for posting
