This hurts my brain to think about. Like most other things. I guess it wouldv'e been.... One of my brother's hand-me-downs, I guess... OOH I KNOW! 6060, Knight's Challenge! Lucky me.
My first castle set was 6010 Supply Cart. Soon I also had my favorite set, 6080 Kings Castle.
And now for something completely different (The Larch): I read so often things like "I still got all the parts", and I wonder: Yeah, why would you not? How does one lose Lego?
"Three causes that led to my lost Lego are:
1. Moving to various houses while growing up.
2. Holes in the floors of the above mentioned old houses
3. Younger siblings - This also leads to broken black swords, round shields, lion flags, etc.
But with all of these problems, our family Lego collection including the castle sets are only missing 2-3% of the bricks. Pieces damaged from play wear would be a higher percentage.
Well, lucky me again. One move, no little siblings, all new houses.
If I were to make something out of LEGOs, I would probably use LEGOs. Pretty advanced stuff going on up in my head.
