    those are pretty good... i don't particularly like star wars, but my partner does, so when he buys the kits i put 'em together (i do have a thing for legos)... yoda was fun especially... but i don't have the creativity to design things from scratch...

    Yeah I just think those designs are wicked. :)

    Not a great starwars fan either, but they all look cool.

    Nice designs - makes me wish for my old lego.....but when I played with them there weren't as many colors or different types of blocks. I thought it was great to have a few cylindrical pieces....:D

    When I have kids, we'll be getting legos again.

    Well, the robotic sets, technical ones and a bunch of movies from Harry Potter to StarWars to Legos own series allows for so many types.

    I did have a lego train, though, which was very cool. Just having that motorized piece was enough :D

    Today you really need to learn so much more about gearing and computers with the robots - I would have loved it.

    i have the robotics the only problem is the software that comes with it is only for windows and it is an aweful peice of sw,
    there is a mac altirnitive out there that is much better but it runs in os9, also i need a usb irtransmitter because the one i have is serial.

    but yea the robotics are awesome i love them, last christmas my dad got me another set with geers and extra motors and little peices galore :D

    The Gospel... in Lego

    If you are a lego fan, check out http://www.bricktestament.com -- nice work, even though the author is mulilating the original texts somewhat (no wonder, he's an atheist :) ).

    I liked the simpler days of Lego. I'm only 23, but when I was 6-8 years old, the big sets were the ones I would like. I don't think I would like the robotic Lego sets now with the batteries or whatever. They also seem simpler to build. I also hate how they have CGI cartoons or whatever, and the CGI Transformers is the worst. They killed Transformers........killed it!!. [​IMG]

    Looks like a Quake logo to me.

    That's what they need -- id Lego sets! Build a grenade-launching ogre! Cacodemons with skull-launching power! And everyone's favorite: the Arch-Vile!

    I remember Lego as a child also, no designs even close! When I was at MWNY '02 my wife and I visited FAO Schwartz. They had a large display dedicated to Lego, designs out of this world as far as intricacy is concerned. Remember the Empire State, WTC buildings, Statue of Liberty, etc. They also had an area with Star Wars. I will have to say that I was very tempted, but I reminded myself that things are not as easy as they seem!

    Yeah they had some insane kits also.

    I think they just recently closed down, I'm not 100% about that, but I think so.

    My life ambition as a kid was to make an Emperial Walker out of Legos, but I never could. I miss my legos...*sniff*

    Hehe, I had this lego submarine, and I fine tuned it so it didn't sink or float, it would have enough air to go right under the surface, it was great. :)

    Star Wars Lego saved my life

    heh, yep, it's true :) I ordered the Tie Bomber from Amazon and it was delivered on September 10th 2001. I started building it before I went to bed, and, instead of waking up the next morning and going to the World Trade Center to do a quick bit of shopping before work as I had planned, I just had to finish off building the lego, I'd have been right under the WTC at 9am that day. I was so engrossed in building it the first I knew of the disaster was when my girlfriend at the time called me to see if i was ok...


    on another note, it's lego blocks/bricks, not legos :) Lego is a brand name, so surely you cannot make it plural in that context?

    evoluzione: Is that so? I'll bet there are quite a few stories like that out there. If that happened to me I would have felt my stomach drop out thinking how close I was to biting it.

    A coworker of mine was almost in some crossfire about a year ago for getting me a sandwich within like three minutes of a gunfight breaking out between police and a couple of guys robbing the Arbys or something, they had already shot two civilians I think.

    She told me "you better appreciate your damn sandwich, I almost died for that!" ;)

    I've been a big LEGO fan...

    Medieval series being my favorite.
    They killed any charm with Harry ****ing Potter and all that unreal stuff... forgot the titles...
    Personally, I think 1991-1994 were the golden years of medieval style LEGO bricks.

    ...Technics always good. But in 7-12 years range they now have only commerce, brands, product-placement, you name it. Nothing ORIGINAL, giving enough space for Your imagination. Too bad.
