I could never really bring myself to listen to CKMS, but I’m still kind of sad. Who knows, though… maybe they’ll find funding elsewhere. But probably not.
In order to celebrate LEGO’s 50th anniversary, Boing Boing Gadgets is posting retrospectives on LEGO sets over the years.
I was all about the space and town sets. It looks like Joel was more space and castle. No town stuff, sadly. In his summary of his nine favourite sets, I absolutely remember building the headlining Galaxy Explorer. I didn’t have the Futuron Monorail, but I remember wanting it desperately.
So that was a nice reminiscence. But then he posted The Six Ugliest Space Lego Sets. I looked at it, and it looked like, except for the two robots from the 90s, I had every one of those. I loved the Robot Command Center! Even as the robot. It had mini-vehicles that fit in the robot’s sides, which is always cool.
On closer inspection, though, I didn’t actually have the 1593 at the end of the article, but the two sets it was built from. I think. The vehicle docking thing in the 1593 looks awfully familiar. I know I had all those pieces, though. They were some of the first sets I got. There’s no way I have the boxes or instructions anymore to figure out what I actually had…
