Just saw a commercial for a new lightsaber toy that makes Chewbacca sounds.

Yes, I never ranked one of the train sets. I had a couple of badass castles and I think one of the pirate ships, but any of the Lego train stuff was just on another level. And if you want to get ahold of a monorail set now...

Since this is general SF forum now, tho, I wanted to highlight some of my old faves from Lego's original space stuff. I feel like a lot of it is genuinely more creative than much of the licensed stuff they're cranking out these days.



This one was a lot of fun to play with. Not only did the little guy on the buggy drop out of the middle pod, the two outer pods also detached as separate ships to zoom around. A really cool toy design, especially because kid me was obsessed with how the Enterprise-D's saucer could separate.



Check this dude out, cold chillin' in his supermaneuverable spy saucer with thrusters on each corner! Romulan sunglasses commodore, eat your heart out.



I think this is one of the biggest space sets I had, and it was one of the only Lego sets I remember that was held together with magnets. I think the central saucer popped out separately, and I want to say you could actually break up all 4 quadrants into separate ships...

And then of course they had totally hog-wild poo poo like Time Cruisers. Mid-90s Lego was probably their creative golden era.



I had those two saucers and they owned hard as a child

A few weeks ago I had a dream in which a reporter was talking into a microphone and describing the sequels (it was happening off to the side in the dream). She was saying, "based on a white woman's account of her vacation..." and when I woke I was amused briefly by the thought of Rey talking about what a rough time she had at the start, then she went off and met this guru on an island, and then the last part kind of went bad.

Then it hit me that it actually made some sense, even if it was a dream.

Hey everybody we got a new icon! Well, actually it's the icon we've already had for the reports section of the website but nobody can really see it in there so I expect it's pretty new to most of you.


Also, we've had exactly 0 reports in the entire time since I've become a mod. Great posting everyone! Keep it up!

Then perhaps new leadership is needed. I call for a vote of no confidence in reignofevil’s reign of evil.

It's a subforum for every strata of the forums. The elf dick historians, the sheev dick historians, the Harry Potter People. We're truly one great mixed melting pot of sticky fluid.
