Nostalgia #1

Posted by Taipu1 , Sep 13 2012 · 594 views

This is one of the most nostalgic images of my childhood. In August/September of 2005 I went to Legoland Windsor. I saw the Tower of Toa in the Big Shop, and convinced my parents to buy it for me for my birthday. Being cruel parents, they agreed to but I wasn't allowed to have it until my birthday. So they hid it in their bedroom. I managed to find it, it was on top of the wardrobe. Being only 10 at the time, I could reach it, but it was tantalisingly close to being in reach.

11 October, I got my results for the 11+ examinations. I had got 139/141, which was good. Being as how I had therefore got into the school I wanted to (Conveniently its a minutes walk from my house) I cryed. And then my mum said because I had done so well that I could have Tower of Toa early.

Needless to say, in my eyes at the time it was the best set in the known universe, and I have very fond memories of it. I also got the Visorak Battle ram for my birthday, which added to the sheer awesome factor.

For a moment, I thought Tower of Toa was a bunch of Toa canisters haphazardly stacked ontop of one another, since we did that at a convention once, and I was going "Why would you want to buy such a bizarre thing."

And then I remembered the playsets. Never got that one myself, but it does indeed look like a fun one.

I got one for Christmas, I showed my mom one going for cheap on Ebay. It's a pretty decent set.

I remember getting the Colosseum for my Bday years ago. I was so exited for it

Remember the "Hanging By a Thread" comic, I loved reinacting that. My personal favorite of those playsets was always the visorak gate.
