For those who remember, Lego was never about Star Wars. It was Pirates, Castle, Space, Town, Wild West, and Undersea Explorers. And when you were busy sticking the pieces in your nose, you had no idea these sets would one day go for tens of thousands of dollars.
Well now you can weep tears of bittersweet, melancholic nostalgia and regret when you see your childhood memories sold for unbelievable sums.

Okay, this one was expensive when it came out, too.
2. Black Knight’s Castle
3. Skull’s Eye Schooner
Do you feel old yet?
4. Black Monarch’s Castle
These were so much fun….
5. Space Shuttle
Why couldn’t you just keep it in the box!
6. Forbidden Island
Ahhhhh Christmas morning in the early 90’s.
7. Rock Island Refuge
You must be feeling old by now.
8. Imperial Trading Post
It’s a down payment on a car.
9. Wolfpack Tower
They just don’t make them like this anymore…

Who needed friends when you had this??

Remember all the boobytraps? Ahhhh so much fun!
Well I hope you learned your lesson, and will not be letting Junior take his toys out of the box. Now go find your old toy chest and start making big kid bucks!
