He's my small vintage LEGO collection that i somehow accidently got into?!?!?...



6374 - Holiday Villa, just missing the cypress tree (damned expensive things and the black BBQ paddle)



6362 - Post office, complete and even has the part used sticker sheet



6371 - Petrol Station, missing the outer box and blue motorbike.



6392 - Airport, just missing 2 x 2x16 green thin strips. Again has the part used sticker sheet

If you have a cypress tree, blue motorbike or the 2x16 green strips please let me know?

Thanks

Great Lego sets Stef  cheers  That airport must be pretty big when all set up. I love Lego, me and my brother had lots as kids and its easy to get nostalgic for some of those clunky old sets. Look forward to what you find next. Here's a link to my blog which has about 30 ads featuring 70s and 80s sets, in particular Lego Space which is very cool http://thevintagetoyadvertiser.org/2011/04/12/l-is-for/

Andy, nice Sarlacc. Are you going to get more? It's very addictive  lol!

You're right, Detour Junior collects mostly SW Lego but does have a few City sets too. His stuff is in the Tosche section and he's been asking me to upload some new pics of his latest which I will soon. Luckily I don't have to be tempted to collect Lego, I can leave that to him.

I wish I still had all my lego from when I was a kid I don't really like the kits that much I preferred the blocks and stuff where you could just build whatever came to mind. However if I do want any this city has lots for sale at least.

That thing is awesome!

Stef -- That's a good reason! Sounds like lego is definitely in your blood. Very Happy

Paul -- How lucky is that? All you have to do to cut your lego craving is to spend quality time with jr.!

Larry -- When it came to legos, I preferred the sets.. Especially anything pirate or medieval knights based. I had other blocks and such for building with my imagination.

I absolutely loved playing with Lego when I was a kid, I'm amazed I didn't start collecting SW Lego when it first came out back in '99. But I've bought a couple small (newer) sets in the last year and have really enjoyed building the sets with both of my daughters.

I think buying some vintage Lego could be very dangerous, money-wise, as I'm quite sure I would enjoy it too much! I can barely keep up with the various SW collections I have on the go...

I remember playing with various legos as a kid, so I must have gotten some sets, but I don't remember any specific set other than some medieval castle thing with a bunch of robin hood looking guys. I mean I had pieces to cars and trucks and all sorts of stuff, but he only set I really remember is that one. Not sure what the others came from. Makes me want to look this stuff up now to see if I can find them.

Played with Lego earlier (in life), left it. Came back. Played more (excuse - Teach, 'architect I am not'). Left it again, came back again as Em my other half loves F1 (played with cool, little figures dressed as Michael Schumacher and Felipe Massa).
Went away again as was spending Tooo much money on it! SW, Indiana Jones and Lego City.
There's also nothing like Lego SPACE from 1979 - 1985! WOW!
Still play / make it with three nieces (oldest no older than 6, Lego City is ace!)

Stefan, Fab Lego sets fella...
I do believe I may have a couple of bits that you're missing (maybe Cypress Tree and Blue Motorbike, if you still need them). I'll root around 2moro in the garage,

Some nice vintage space legi there. I have a small box of random play set parts but not enough to complete any of the sets.

I used to have TONS of Vintage Lego Sets. I'll have to check with my parents, I know they were keeping them in storage in their basement.

If anyone is looking for any loose pieces/etc let me know and I'll take a look the next time I visit them.
