    That reminds me, I need to buy a new LEGO pirate ship some day, my old one broke into a thousand pieces that are now lost forever.


    You should creat a diorama, with your old ship at the bottom, and your new one sailing over the top.

    Twould be epic, my friend...epic.

    Never bought any so I only know what I had as a kid, and it was all castles and cowboys and other old stuff like that... It was great, I had the most amazing adventures. It's kinda harder to imagine young me playing epic stories in a... gas station. Or grocery store. I don't know, doesn't sparkle my imagination as much I guess.

  • I am pretty much required by law to link the Camphor, Castaway Music Video... It has Playmobil, Pirates, and an awesome song.

    I used to have an awesome Lego pirate ship when I was little (mostly assembled by my dad), but it sat put together in its box in a spare room and eventually got dismantled a bit, and when I was old enough to put it together myself, I found that the mast was missing. Lego did a re-issue of the Black Seas Barracuda a couple years ago, but it was way too expensive.

    I used to have a Lego castle (assembled by my mums friend), and i really loved it, and was devastated when someone knocked it off the table, causing significant damage. Looked pretty cool though, like modern day castle ruins. I wish i still had that...

    Oh and, just found this on google

    I am seriously considering to play around with the LEGO Digital Designer one day.

    I remember when that came out, as well as their awesome robot kits. The LEGO brand is really doing a lot of awesome things to fit into the modern world, without compromising the integrity of the whole thing, unlock some "modernizations". It's all really cool stuff.

    Can't stop laughing now.


    Also the Lego digital designer was kind of clunky when I messed with it. I couldn't get every piece in every color as I preferred, and I knew there was special pieces that I missed out on. Then again this was MAYBE 2 years ago when I tried it? I wanted to build some Lego-Bamboo and came out disappointed. Going to a Lego store is much more preferable, SOOOO many bins of blocks to be had...

  • Speaking of Lego, has anyone seen the Real Lego House that James May built? It's amazing! It was for the series "James May'sToy stories", which i don't think aired in the U.S.

    He also made a plastercine garden (for the royal flower show), the worlds largest scalextric track, a giant Model plane and a real Meccano Bridge (crossing the river Mersey, Liverpool). (well, i say he, they were actually community-like projects)

  • I saw the plastercine one....thought it was brilliant :)
