Now I am 41 I dare to say I played LEGO Technics, inventing trucks, 4 x 4, cranes, with tons of available parts all my child hood almost until I was ... 16 - 17 ! ... and got taken by parties and girls.
There is no age to build such LEGO so it is great to get it and just build it!!

I'm 55 and haven't played with Lego's since I was a kid. At that time they were just starting to put out "kits", they usually were small and came in a little box. But most of my childhood was having to use my imagination and put together square pieces to make what I envisioned.
Some of these new Lego sets are crazy complicated, and pricey.

And remember Erector Sets?

That would be cool on my trinket shelf in my shop area, next to my Hot Wheel Camaro.


I had a huge Lego collection from the 1970s as a kid. even went to the Lego factory In Denmark as a kid when we were visiting family in Sweden.
All my collection was stolen out of storage, along with my extensive HO train collection while I was overseas in the USAF. Sux, I wanted my oldest boy to have all of that stuff.

Looks like it only comes in black. If I could get it in orange I would buy one. I see you can change the top and the stripe color, but no mention of base color. Black cars are too hot in the summer and hard to keep clean.😩

Who remembers "Lincoln Logs" and "Tinker Toys"? Boy those were the days. My dad had a wooden box full of plumbing fittings. Kept me occupied for hours building with those fittings while he was working in his shop.
Had all that stuff,
Hot Wheels
Legos
HO trains
and Capsela. cool toys..

Spent hours in my room on rainy days playing with all that.
and when I was "grounded", lol.
Do kids still get Grounded? If I ground my youngest (16) I would have to make him go outside. "you're grounded, go outside ! "

The colors work out for me, as well as the option of doing the RS grill / headlights.
The red interior isn't ideal, no houndstooth option :D

I had all that stuff back in the day too, I ended up giving my huge collection of Hot Wheels to my younger cousin back when I got too old for them. I wish I still had them, probably a few worth something by now.

I didn't get into Lego when I was a kid, I liked "Hot Wheels" and scale models. My son now, that's a different story.
Here's a die cast display I keep on top of my office cabinets.......

That's what I'm talking about. I have never found orange and white. Orange and black yes, but not orange and white. Very cool.

Speaking of cool stuff to assemble, do you guys/gals remember "The Erector set"? lots of metal parts, plenty of small machine screws, nuts, washers, and a gear drive crank if you wanted to make a winch or crane. I am definitely dating myself here.

My son and I play Star Wars Legos almost every day. I may have to get one of these but can I keep him from tearing apart is the big question.
