Thumbs up I have got to get me one of these!

Great news for all local LEGO aficionados (including me!):

LEGO 10213 Shuttle Adventure Set:



The coolest feature for me is the spring-loaded landing gear (which make the shuttle tilt forward just like the real thing).

Folks,

You know, it's really interesting how Lego is now making all of these kits. I remember way back when I was a kid and I used to play with Legos, and Lego had this contest and asked that anyone with ideas for stuff built with Legos to photograph them and send them a picture.

I built all five Thunderbird machines at the time and sent the photos in. I wonder why these haven't come out yet?

Cheers.

Probably (or unfortunately) the Lego designers are not fans of Gerry Anderson

But then, I've always wondered why they refer to Thunderbirds as The Thunderbirds!

I was always under the impression that "Lego" was the company, and that "Legos" were a group of more than one Lego that could be used together?

Or, is the word "Lego" like the word "Deer"? As in "Look, there's a Deer" and "Look at all the Deer!"? I guess it is an American thing.

The coolest thing I've ever seen built from Lego was a highly accurate model of the Japanese Battleship Yamato built by a fellow in Japan. It was about 20ft. long and was remarkably detailed.

Cheers.

I thinks its a shame that Lego comes in pre-defined kits. Yes they look great and the engineering is wonderful, but it takes the imagination out of Lego.

If you buy a moon buggy...you make a moon buggy. THE END!

Now when I were a lad..

Absolutely!
No pre-defined shapes when I was a kid, just the basic blocks and the imagination to build a model that represented the image you had in your head.
The creativity has certainly been taken away with these 'kits.'

You can buy a Set and follow the instructions, that is correct, but we can use our imagination and create what you want.

I bought my son the Megablocks Pro-Builder shuttle a few years ago - it's based a lot more on 'regular' lego pieces, apart from some bits like lab modules, bay doors and jets.

It's also bloody huge!
