In order to celebrate LEGO’s 50th anniversary, [Boing Boing Gadgets](http://gadgets.boingboing.net/lego/) 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](http://gadgets.boingboing.net/2008/01/28/50-years-of-lego-nin.html), I absolutely remember building the headlining [Galaxy Explorer](http://guide.lugnet.com/set/497). I didn’t have the [Futuron Monorail](http://peeron.com/inv/sets/6990-1), but I remember wanting it desperately.
So that was a nice reminiscence. But then he posted [The Six Ugliest Space Lego Sets](http://dansdata.blogsome.com/2008/01/29/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](http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6951)! 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](http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6929) [sets](http://guide.lugnet.com/set/6880) 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…
