Legos have gone to poop!
 
Me and my Girlfriend decided we were to buy some legos since we all got rid of ours years ago (big mistake). So off to toys R us and looking for legos. Its absolutely spars compared to what it was as i was a kid! No more builder buckets, no more good creations that use existing common pieces and maybe a custom piece or two (and the custom pieces worked with personal creations). Now its all pre-definied creations that seem to use almost all custom pieces and the custom parts look as if they will be hard to incorporate into anything other than the box cover.

So being fed up with what was available in the stores i decided to check online....Well its just as crappy on their online store! Tried searching for some of my old favorite pieces....NO LONGER MADE!

Its BS man!

All these toys kids have these days instills very little imagination and creativity. I am almost afraid that there are going t be fewer imaginative visionaries in the future with all this pre-defined and guided play kids have these days!




... Yeah Rant over!

I agree.

I still have enough Legos to fill up a 10 gallon container. They were priceless to me even when they were pennies a piece, so I guess I'm pretty fortunate to still have them. I spent so much time building so many different things with them when I was a child, I couldn't have given them away.

My favorite sets were the the car chassis with the horizontally opposed rear engine, the one with the penumatic rams, and the set with the electric motor.

Capsela was another favorite building toy of mine.

I have a big container still, and will never get rid of it. I always wanted the pneumatic pieces though.

the "technic" kits from the mid 90's were the cat's pyjamas IMHO:)

I've still got my bin, but recently got excited again when I found a Ducati Technic motorcycle. Then I stumbled across a Technic Ferrari F1 car, then another Technic Ferrari Enzo, another Technic Ferrari F1 car in 1:8 scale, and finally a Technic Ferrari 599 GT. These have full differentials, working pistons and steering, doors open, the 1:8 scale F1 car even has a working inboard shock system!

I've always though regular LEGO was a little boring, but I still find the Technic stuff got my creative juices flowing...
