Lego!

Holy crap! That vintage Magnetron and Blacktron!


#42

I’ve gotten into collecting the Speed Champions series.


#43

And finally, Pirates!

This concludes my little Lego restoration project. I also did have a rather large collection of Lego City sets, but unfortunately do not have access anymore.

Ooh, I had the smaller pirate ship - that one was fun, and the mast pieces made great laser cannons for large starships.

My Saturn V is here!!


#45

Damn… Another must have LEGO.

My Saturn V has arrived and I put it together this afternoon. What an amazing set. The completed rocket is huge and looks fantastic. The packaging and the instructions are also very classy. The whole thing has a collectors feeling to it.

I was also impressed by the building techniques used in the internal structures. This has changed quite a bit since my youth, probably half of the pieces I have seen for the first time. Some of the building is so fancy I have thought multiple times throughout the built: “oh come on Lego, now you are just showing off”. But a while later you would put some elements together and the exotic structures suddenly fall into place. Still, I think they made some extra pirouettes in places where a couple of simple bricks would have done it as well, probably to get to the magic 1969 pieces count.

This is the most impressive commercial Lego set I have ever seen. A great tribute to what I think is the most amazing machine ever constructed by mankind.

I managed to get a Saturn V set from a guy who sold it (sealed box). Had to drive 60km to get it and spend 40€ more than in the shop. But I had to get it.
I surprised my brother with it and we will build it together when we meet at the coming weekends.
We put together the first stage today.


#55

ah… yes but you will find it at 1am in the morning in a dark room with bare feet … there is no pain like treading on a lego …with the possible exception of treading on an upturned electric plug :fearful:


#56

I want one but they are all sold out :frowning:


#57

Lego will keep on producing the Saturn V’s until 2018. They’ve said that they expect to have it back in stock from mid august.


#58

Yay!


#59

I’m hoping to start building mine this week. Just need to find From the Earth to the Moon or Apollo 13 to watch while doing it.
