  1. So while rebuilding LEGO train 4559 I found a mini catalog in the bottom of the box. I'm guessing I got this set around christmas of 96 or 97. Looking through the catalog I was amazed at some of the great themes back then. While 96-97 is probably not considered the golden age by most, it had Divers, Aquazone, Western, Forestmen and generally some awesome sets. Lets take a trip down memory lane... Ok now Robo Force is probably not one of the most revered themes, actually none of the 97 space sets are BUT they did have 3 non-licensed themes, something to be envied. I do like the colors on these sets and the figs. Exploriens is another so-so theme IMHO. UFO I actually rather like, especially 6915. The alien figures quite look like the Predator which I enjoyed then and now. Fright Knights, an interesting spin on Castle. Again some nice figs, I was really into the dragons at the time. Forestmen, now we're talking. Also a nice 90s style castle although I think this heraldry is even more "<insert that tiresome argument>" than the decried 2013 version of the lions. Now we're getting to the really good stuff as in my opinion. Wild West was a truly great theme that was far too short lived. Although the old west is not really a top time period for me these sets were just so good: amazing new pieces, great figures, a nice civilian town, and all around great builds. Fort Legoredo is one of very few sets I kept stored its original box since I was a kid. The Native Americans theme was also quite good with some great figures. I love the stump piece that was used in some of these and almost nowhere else, and the great printed horses. Here is another big one for me, Aquazone. I love undersea sets and Aquanauts and Aquasharks were both great. Those octagonal pieces are so cool, as well as the chrome crystals and weapons and the minifig armor. Aquaraiders was not as good with odd looking builds except 2160. I do quite enjoy the trans green hook hands though. Ok here is one theme that really does nothing for me, Time Twisters and Cruisers both look so slapped together and ugly. Some decent pirate sets from this time as well. Ok, possibly my favorite of this year. Divers is another really stupendous theme. I love both the concept and the execution. The subs, the undersea environments, the great snorkel face mask piece (even though it doesn't really match with having a scuba tank). Manta rays and dolphins! Those panels with the porthole windows! Can't wait to see what the new Explore under sea theme looks like, hopefully it lives up to Divers. Outback is another great little short lived sub-theme. I still have the plane from 6444 put together. Some nice city sets although the construction stuff looks too simplistic. I like 6553 news crew. Boats that really float! I don't know why this was very exciting as a kid but it was. I wasn't big into technic at this time but the submarine is pretty awesome, and it has pneumatics. I have a few of these technic figures and I think its a shame they didn't catch on. Obviously it does limit the scale which can be bad, but they are very posable good looking figures. That's all folks, interested to see what others thought about this year.
  2. Hi I would like to introduce my next speed build movie. Again i've filmed a historical set - 8216 from 1997. And some images of box, instructions and racer. How do you like this model?
