I loved the town serious. Lego's kick ass. As an "adult" that used them as a child, I think they taught me alot about assembly in real life, such as vehicle engines, etc. I am pretty good at that stuff and blame it on Lego's, because I don't know where else I would have learned it from.
space lego was always cool
most of the lego these days is crap.......they used a lot of larger mould pieces where as in the good old days you had to physically build each section. also some of the themes are getting a little dare i say, unrealistic.
my box of lego was handed down to both of my little sisters and now its on to the nephews and nieces... when our guy gets old enough he and his cousins can all dig in. Its a mix of basic blocks then some space stuff too.
