LEGO interests:
Favourite Set: LEGO 8097 Slave 1 (my favourite ship and character from the OT and one of the coolest and most detailed sets in the SW range - should be bought because of the Boba minifig alone...)

Themes: LEGO Star Wars, Super Heroes, LOTR, TMNT.

I'm really having trouble remembering my first lego set for sure but the one that sticks in my mind more than any is LEGO 6872 Xenon X-Craft. If it wasn't my very first it was one of the first few... In fact I have recently discovered a huge number of old sets from years ago that I still had instructions and all the pieces for. Most of these are from the mid 80's to early 90's and consist mainly of original Space, City, Castle and some Technic sets. I had great fun trawling through the huge boxes of LEGO finding the pieces and have managed to build quite a few!

It's in the last 4 years I have re-discovered my love for LEGO, thanks to a good friend and fellow AFOL that helped jog my memory (thanks atkinsar!). My main interest is LEGO SW, and in particular OT sets. I also have a number of other sets including Super Heroes, LOTR, TMNT, Indiana Jones, Toy Story, and POTC. I have complete sets of S1, S2, and Team GB CMF's. And as a huge Ferrari fan, the little jewel in my collection is a MISB, LEGO 8389 M Schumacher & R Barrichello! It's a small set I know but the 2 minifigs of my favourite Ferrari driver's with those printed helmets makes it very special! In addition to that set I have also become the proud owner of both NYCC TMNT promo minifigs (Shadow Leonardo & Kraang Android)
