RE: Is it just me, or are Legos way cooler today than when we were kids?
My feelings on Lego(r) from my first set 1970s to today.
The stuff I made way back when was much cooler than what I can build today. Not in a neat, intricate, color matching, special parts way, but in a generic you could build things to play with way.
The pieces you had back in the 70s are not produced today. And they are missed. They were much more generic, and as such, much more useful.
For me, the magic is gone. And I am not sure if it is the Legos, or that I can build real things now.
