I found these pods, back in the day, really useful for random, unusual parts that I couldn't find anywhere else.

Catchy little hashtag, right? I bet it’ll go viral.

Wow! Nice robot! I think it looks like a mini version of Zane's ice mech (or whatever the proper term for it is...) from season five.
I love it!

Ah, I love the X-pods. Re-bought four of the originals that I used to own as a little kid off Bricklink last year. Nostalgia is a powerful force like that...

I got this one, one of my favorites. I would latch it to to the bottom of a small creator jet so it could airdrop the robot on missions.

The Lego Company also released a board game based on these X-Pods and you could even get or buy a strap to carry the pods with you. A shame though I missed out on the Limited Edition Clikits X-Pod...

Fondly remembering the models made and used in Lego Universe.

This is how you make a pod LEGO, not the new ones that somehow cost $9.

I had the green and red ones of the x-pods (robots and insects respectively). thought the robot one was better, didn't know there were other robot ones

That robot is actually quite a fun little thing in real life.

I loved the x-pods back in the day! I’m pretty sure the loops on the pod itself were so you could attach them to your belt. Those were the days...

I managed to get all of the originals (including the Black Robot pod) but I only managed to get this pod out of the second wave. I wish the more colourful ones were released in the UK,, like the monster pod and spider pod, but I had to make do with what I had.

These things were amazing.

Aww I had this. Bought it from Woolworths. The pod kicked about my Lego box for years and now I use it for all the spare stud shooter studs.

I've commented about my history with X-Pods (and the Play Off board game) before, so instead of repeating myself, I'll share something different.

The original wave of X-Pods was released just before I entered my Dark Ages, and in the 2 or 3 years leading up to that I started having the foresight to take really good care of my LEGO sets at the time, ensuring that nothing went missing or got scavenged for parts without at least keeping record. All my X-Pod MOCs I made when I was 14 — when I had just entered my Dark Ages — remained in excellent condition until I took them apart last year. I plan to build something new out of them (and the pods) in the near future.

The third wave of X-Pods annoyed me because there was no consistency in the pod colors: White/trans blue, orange/trans red, blue/trans yellow, and yellow-green/clear. In Wave 1 all of the canisters were clear, and in Wave 2 all of them were the transparent version of the lid color.
