Argh nostalgia overdrive! :wub:

So many memories coming back looking over those space sets, I was all about space stuff as a kid when it came to Lego.

I still have a few Space Police and Ice Planet bits knocking around that I've passed on to my kids - still brings a smile.to my face when I see my boys bringing out the "Ice Guy" as they call him. He gets extra love for having a bright orange visor apparently - oh and matching skis! :lol:

The Aquazone stuff was amazing. I had a big sub with a dome front that was cool as hell, but I'll never forget my dad getting me this in John Menzies when I was about 5:

I had this black and red robot thing from similar series. This brat came over with my nanny (no idea why really he was a little banana split) and poured it down the back of a radiator. :fp:

But yeah I had stuff from Aquazone and a bit of Ice Planet.

My cousins were friends with these rich guys when they were younger so Id always want to go to their house when I was visiting. They had a shed out the back full of built lego sets on display, including the monorail running around the whole place, it was magnificent.

Use voucher code BF12 at checkout and get another £12 off, making it £287.

I used to own the old one. Fantastic build!

Quidco are currently giving 11% cashback on the Lego shop and it runs until the 25th. Also some of the 20% discounted sets are being previewed on the site. Tempted by the Technic RC for my 8 y o, he's really into Technic at the moment and 20% should bring it down to just over £60. Couple that with the £10 voucher in the catalogue and the Nutcracker should make it really good deal.
