Thought this might be fun.

Here is the oldest photo I unearthed from my parent's photo albums of myself playing with my LEGO.



I am about 5 and do remember this photo being taken. Those with a keen eye might spot the carriages of train set 7710 being used as houses. I believe that blue cardboard box is probably it's original inside box.

I'd love to see other member's old snaps so if you have one do share!

Pretty sure this is c.1985. Assembling set 6930 (secretly disappointed that it's not 6385).

Found a few old ones,

Here is me and a few of the neighbours with a couple of creations. We're all around 10 so that would put it about 1982/3, The yellow technic came from the helicopter set 852, the blue from motorbike 857

I think I must've used just about every brick we had left to build the battleship but there is an A-Team van on the pier and I think that is either a black Magnum PI Ferrari or maybe the Trans-am from Smokey and the Bandit.

I built every vehicle from all my favourite TV shows, the A-Team van, the Fall Guys truck, the Lotus Espirit from James Bond, the chopper from Blue Thunder. I have a photo somewhere of a pretty good Airwolf if I can find it.

Great looking battleship there Spudh. Hope the hull has less technic bricks in it than the top though.

Thankfully there are none of me that I know of, but I am a bit sorry that I don't have any photos of the mad things I used to build. I am fairly sure a photo was taken of some of them, but no luck locating anything.

Spent a wee while looking for pics of my younger self playing with lego but to no avail.

I do have these pics however, taken last year at an event in Smyths, technically the oldest photos of myself with Lego as far as I know. :P





I seem to recall trying to make a TIE fighter out of various City line helicopter parts.
