Getting my first ever proper Lego set from my godparents (I think?), it was a Star Wars set: the V-wing (man, looking that up brings back memories). Knowing absolutely nothing about Star Wars at the time - I don't even know if I was aware of its existence - and holding an utter disdain for the instructions as all young children surely must do, I decided to build a Transformer instead. I don't remember it that well at all, really - all I know it that it was a "robot" that was around 1 brick thick on average and certainly did not move at all, let alone transform. Good times.
Of course, there are many more stories I could regale you all with. The good old days of Exo-Force, or the time I came home from a holiday with my family and the house-sitter must have had a child or something that they let come over because ALL OF MY SPACE POLICE AND AGENTS SETS WERE ON THE FLOOR, LINED UP IN A BIG ROW AND HALF-DISMANTLED.
Ahem. But, I won't bore you with all those. Who knows, maybe I'll share some more down the line? But for now, I think three whole paragraphs is enough, don't you?
