I'm 18, been collecting since I was about 8. Lego's replaced MicroMachines tanks for me. My first memories of Legos were of the kids who lived beside me. I was 6 or 7, they were probably around 13-14. They had a bunch of Black Falcon castle sets, while I just had a tub of bricks, and I loved going over and hanging out with them (if you are familiar with 13-14 year olds, pthen you'll robably realize that they we're Really nice). That's where I got my love of Castle. My first castle started as a model of the county courthouse, then got expanded over and over. Finally, I started coming on here, and learned the joys of color coding.
