While recently reminiscing about my youth, I have come to the realization that my next favorite thing besides the sets themselves were the included catalogs. Without the internets, this was how we would discover the new and exciting sets and themes.
Of course for smaller sets, you would just get that junky small foldout sheet. But for the larger sets, you would get the super awesome rectangular booklet and I would just spend hours looking at it. One of the best parts were the dioramas they would set up in between theme changes. While I still love the new full sized catalogs, I do miss those little rectangular booklets with their choreographed scenes.
I have gone through all my old papers and sets and found I still have several of the old catalogs. Does anyone know when TLG stopped making these and/or when they moved to the full sized catalogs? I think my first full sized catalogs are from 2007 or 2008 but I had only recently moved near a Lego Store so I might simply have been out of the loop. And does anyone else collect these catalogs?
