My grandma give me a bag of old-ass LEGOs she found in her basement.
By old, I mean the first castle series, when every piece was YELLOW for some reason. It feels like I have a little piece of history sprawled out on my bed.

Your Grandma's very nice! :)

That UFO cockpit/black tower in the middle should come in handy.
I'm sure you could make an outpost tower with all that yellow, especially the arches.
Looks like there's a decent number of minifigs/body parts in there.

Actually, as I discovered, that black piece is from some totally unrelated toy. There's a couple other pieces and it's like a really simple K'NEX (the Fisher Price logo on it reinforces this). There's a nice amount of shields, helms and axes, as well as these chest thingies with emblems on them.

Cool. That looks kind of like my LEGO, including the clover breastplate. I <3 my yellow castle.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

Yeah, a few years back a friend of mine got rid of a ton of legos. There was a ton of stuff from the first space sets. Smelled like it had been sitting in an attic for years LoL.

Awww, you lucked out man! I love lego pirates but I don't have a single set. Man, and now they're on ebay for about $300, at least for the good ships.... :cry:

Constructs! Shit man I haven't seen that stuff in YEARS (well, months, I saw some at a good will, that aside, years). My brother used to have a respectable collection of that stuff.

Then we found lego.

Then we built armies.

Then ultimately we found brikwars.

Need I say more?

Actually, this is kind of weird, but my grandma just gave me a box of old legos about 2 weeks ago. She had had it for years and I used to play with it when I visited her when I was little but she finally gave it to me. And now your grammy gives you some legos too. Is there an outbreak of lego giving grandmas in the world? :shock:
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.
