Shocked @ childhood Legos - comments and observations
I don't have many left really, compared to what I once had....but I was looking at these 30 year old or so Legos last week and I noticed how dirty and/or scratched up they are. WOW!!! Didn't think much about it at the time of course (small child, why would I?) - but man do they really stick out as kinda nasty when sitting next to "nice looking" Legos. They're sort of the 4th white wall in a room where you just painted three of the walls bright white and didn't bother with the fourth one.
Whenever my kid gets these, and starts combining them with Legos from unused sets, I wonder what thoughts will be invoked.
On a related note...I see I have four of those old style black bricks for wheels - the ones with holes in all four sides. But I have no wheels for them (:
For the most part, I really only have four colours of bricks: red, blue, white and yellow (in descending order of frequency). I have a very small number of black bricks, and ONE gray 2x4 brick and 5 1x something gray beams. Then there are a number of wheels (Classic Space style), and assorted other odds and ends. Plus minifigs of course (almost all of which are Classic Space). Then there are the plates - a few Classic Space moon style and moon base style plates, and then a bunch of other smaller plates in red, blue, gray, black, white, yellow - and a few transparent ones. No way could I ever rebuild the Galaxy Explorer from these things. Such a shame ):
There is SO much more piece variety today - colours, special purpose bricks, wheels, sizes - everything!
