Here's my small collection of old sealed sets (apologies for the light bulb effect).

I'm not a collector of new box sets but like to add an odd old set now and then as I find them a real throwback to my younger years and great memories.

And I do love the LEGO System and LEGOLAND logos.

Flicking through my phone images, I forgot that I had re-bulit this last year.  This was my favourite set as a kid, think I got it for Christmas in 1994 (or 1993 - not sure).

#6398 - Central Precinct HQ



Many hours were spent playing with this set, and really developed my love for LEGO.

P.S - just noticed I haven't placed the helicopter in the image

Another classic from yesteryear... I think this may have been my second LEGO set as a kid, set 6666, originally released in 1994. The eagle-eyed members will notice it's not 100% correct, the windows are supposed to have stickers applied (horizontal blind style), but can't seem to find them anywhere.



Also have box and instruction manual



I do love these older sets, and currently sorting through my bricks to rebuild my first ever LEGO set.  Will post up once built.

An attempt to bring the anti4-wides into saying nice things ,I found a front chassis 4wide where driver sits and brought back the horrors ,also found a few openable  roof parts too ,only thing is those old sets with box+instructions are valuable

So over the weekend, and after building 6666 last week, I spent most of Saturday building a lot of my old Town sets.  Most of the sets are complete, bar a few, but the eagle-eyed members will spot the missing/replaced pieces.  I've my BL list created to restore them to 100%.  Anyway, here they are:

6509



6533



6667



6662



6649



6352 - I actually don't remember having this set when I was a kid. Personal favourite of sets posted (obviously for playability factor).









I've a few more classic town sets which I hope to put together shortly, so no doubt I'll be back in here soon again.

Love all of these and have all of them in my possession. The first three were mine, the final three my brothers so I guess these are arranged in approximate year of release perhaps?

The condition of yours looks much better than mine however.

(Pretty sure that rear spoiler on the red racer is for one of those missing pieces)

Correct David, the rear spoiler on the Red Racer isn't 100% accurate, I've searched everywhere for the correct red hinge piece and cannot find it anywhere!

Another set re-built this weekend, 100% complete (exception of one tiny sticker).

6442 - Sting Ray Explorer - released 1997.



I've a few more classic sets in the pipeline, will post them soon.

It has stood the test of time really well, and yes, the arms still have got the clutchability, actually surprised how well they move. 

Found the box for this set today too, sadly no instructions have turned up yet!

Another build from my collection, had to replace four 1x1s with colour alternatives (I have the originals somewhere in the bottom of a box, I gave up looking at 11:30pm last night), but other than that, 100% original.

6342 - Beach Rescue Chopper - released in 1993.
