FoundryDX (http://foundrydx.com/msa_0011_09.htm) has some nice lego mecha. Check it out.

Makes me want to run out and buy some sets.

THANK YOU for that link man! That is 2 :cool: !! When I was a kid, one of the things I wanted to be (when I thought you could be anything :rolleyes: ) was a Lego designer. Legos are the best toy ever, far better than the dang videogames we all fuss around with nowadays... 'Course, I'd look weirder playing with legos than I would playing videogames! :D

My vote goes to Legos. I hope when my wive and I start having kids that we have atleast one boy so I can claim all the Lego stuff is his when company comes over. :D

did you see the story on the inquirer (i think it was anyway!!) about a guy whos mad the worlds smallest web server with this stuff.

it has a small TCP/IP stack in it, and apparently the only thing he cant do with it at the mo is ping it. hes got 3k of ram left and hoping to haveit on the net soon!!

now thats what i call software engineering (geddit, software engineering, lego, enineering :) )

Hurray for LEGO, see us Danes can be good for something afterall :)

Btw, did you all know that LEGO is infact the world's biggest manufacturer of vehicle tyres: in 2000 the LEGO Company produced no fewer than 306 million of them. :D

And over the past 60 years global sales of LEGO bricks have topped 320 billion - roughly the equivalent of 52 LEGO bricks for each of the world's 6 billion inhabitants. :eek:

When I was a kid, I wouldn't cut my fingernails so I could use them to pry apart the legos easier lol. But, I didn't have claw-fingers or anything!

The space legos were definitely pretty cool....But nothing beat the pirate ones! You telling me no one else had the pirate ships?

yeah shy, im sure thats what it is... i have the evidence... the lego glove with blood on it!


but seriously tho
my legos used to weigh 100lbs when they all were in the container... then my mom threw them away?
i never forgave her for that
