How Would You Like To See Every Lego Set Ever Made?
It’s no secret that I like Legos. How could anyone not? They’ve come along way just in my lifetime. These days they almost all seem to be franchise driven and sometimes they come with very little to actually put together. It felt like 20 years ago when you got a set that was a castle you had to build it from the ground up. Today you’ll get a piece of plastic that constitutes an entire wall. It’s economically smart for the Lego company yet not as much fun for us. Back then you also were able to buy packages that were just random “fill in” pieces instead of just exclusive sets, but those days are gone.
During an internet search trying to find out if pre Crystal Skull Indiana Jones Legos existed I stumbled upon the holy grail (no pun intended) for Lego sites. Brickset is a database of every Lego set that has EVER BEEN RELEASED, sorted by both year and theme. This is truly amazing! I spent so much time pouring over the contents of this website searching for all those sets that I once had that it all started to blend together in a heaping mass in the dusty corners of my brain.
I was so fond of the medieval and pirate Legos but I could never get into the “present day” sets. I bet those helped create a generation of architects though. It’s interesting to go back and see some of the earlier sets from the 1960s and 70s too.
I’m definitely putting it on my list to find directly after my quest for Jabba’s sail barge from Return Of The Jedi.
So if you’re a fan of Legos or looking for a nostalgic trip down your childhood lane give Brickset a look. You’ll be pleased you did.
