There's a train set hidden in there
Love it

DAMN seeing that supercar II (8448) now I want to buy it!
I've stopped buying lego for ages now, think last time i bought something was when I was around 14~15 years old, when they starting doing robotics insteads of pure lego which disappointed me greatly and I lost interest because everything became pre-packaged and not build it yourself.

Seriously the other day I was in Hobbyco and held the box for the Ferrari Enzo I felt like a kid again, there was just this giant smile on my face... but the $200 price tag... I couldn't do it

But I wouldn't mind owning that red supercar to match my black one!

Can anyone tell me where I could buy it NEW? I don't want pre-loved...

Did anyone have the star destroyer, or go to those lego exibitions that they would have occasionally? I think I saw one about 10 years ago in melbourne central (where they now have the hoyts cinema).

I had the hole collection of the robo riders, the ones that were like bionic, that came in the cylnders.

my first lego kit was an aeroplane, but unfortunately i tried to build it last night and the many years of 'kit bashing' has lost many of the pieces

I'm super tempted to get one of the large Ferrari sets, either the Enzo or the F1 car. I'm just wondering which set is more detailed?

Are these the ones you mean?

The Enzo is the clear winner with almost twice as many bits.

Ah, the largest F1.

I'd probably still go the enzo between those two, but since they're within 100 bricks of each other, Just go for whatever style you like the best. (Enzo).

aah lego

i think over the years i got about 15-16 sets (but never any of the huge big ones) for b'days and stuff, and i got the instructions and boxes for probably 13 of them. my favourites were the space ones (blacktrons v mtrons, and space police!) and the knight ones

i was gonna pack them all up and sell them off, but its a real nostalgic feel about them. the worlds you can create when you were a kid, you know your racing car driver fighting the knight with a four-pen ink (yes they fit in their hand perfectly!), using the space antennas as light sabres or battling your TMNTs.

i could probably get about 250-300 on my lego from what ive seen on ebay, its all sitting under my bed gathering dust, but its hard to part with it

For all you with huge lego collections, check this out.

On a side note, anyone here in RCJA? What do you think of the new NXTs? Personally I'm going to stick with the RCX after testing the NXT. Its just too slow to be competitive.
