Space Lego

Space Lego

I managed to win four space lego auctions on ebay this afternoon, very exciting :):) I only missed out on one, because it went higher than I could really afford/was willing to pay for it. Plus the photo didn't include some of the bits the instruction photo said should have been there, so it's possible it wasn't a complete set.

I've also spent far too much time this weekend looking for the missing pieces to my other sets. There's a site called BrickLink which has vendors of lego, including Australian ones that just sell spare parts. Another weekend wasted.. :)

I used to love Lego's when I was a kid. Just about the time I was outgrowing the plastic toys in favor of much larger gasoline operated ones like riding lawn mowers, (yes, I've wrecked a riding lawn mower. Twice.) they came out with the awesome Technic legos that one could make a model of a go-kart with, including rack and pinion steering, and if my memory serves me right, chain drive and pistons that went up and down. I suppose now that I'm a grown man I could reinvest, but I've got more hobby than my budget allows now!

Hey, lego rocks!

I like the spaceship, it's quite nice... What a way to waste a weekend! Sounded like fun though :P

Yeah that space ship is the last thing we ever got new - in 1987 on Norfolk Island - apparently just about the cheapest place in the world to buy Lego.

It's going to be a bit of an expensive hobby for a while, but since I'm only collecting Classic and Futuron there will be an end to it.
