anyone think there are too many special pieces these days?
a few people do.
the millenium falcon kit above, is totally awesome, there are probably ‘special’* pieces in it.
but the point is this: you can use those special pieces, and build something else.

I think that the special pieces are good actually. What I don’t like though is that that makes the kits less versatile – eg a wall is now made of one big wall piece – you can’t use that for anything except building a wall whereas in the past, it’d have been built of lots of blocks which then allowed you to build all sorts of stuff – basically it makes building up a collection of Lego more expensive.
I’m just rediscovering the joys of Lego – I used to love it and have loads when I was a kid – now my son’s getting into it. I got a huge box of it second hand a couple of weeks ago from gumtree for only £30 – reckon there’s about £3-400 worth in there! Result but it’s a shame it’s mainly the Harry Potter stuff as my son just wants to build spaceships…
must go into my parents’ attic to see if mine is still up there.
Anyone else recall this?Posted 5 years ago

Oh I loved Lego!!
Remember having this when I was a kid
It was kinda hard to build I remember that much. How the differential worked still confuses me to this day. The gearbox even worked! Can’t remember if it was two speeds or forward and reverse, though.
Apparently, Lego are the World’s biggest tyre manufacturer or something?

That’s the later one.
Special pieces don’t have to be a problem – I mean decent CV joints enable FWD or 4WD which was never really possible before. I made a CV joint from standard bits but it was a bit too big to be of use.
Real cars are full of custom bits after all.Posted 5 years ago
Just realised quite how many sets I actually had going through this:
I had almost every one on the first page 😯Posted 5 years agospacemonkeyMember
Yep, that Galaxy Explorer rocked – but so did a lot of the space kits.
And Rachel, I was given that car for Christmas … I had a right strop when my brother kept using the controller because I thought he’d kill the batteries. Just downloaded the instructions and a whole load of memories came flooding back 🙂 Happy days.Posted 5 years agoChrisLSubscriber
I had the rear engined car chassis. The Galaxy Explorer was a dream set of mine when I was younger, which I never got… until about 3 years ago when I picked one up from eBay. 🙂
I did get the Galaxy Commander, which was a successor to the Galaxy Commander for a birthday when I was a kid, though:
