So I was browsing the new Avengers LEGO sets on LEGO.com and stumbled apon the Instructions tab. Did anyone else know about this? Apparently LEGO compiled a giant database of all LEGO instructions ever.

We currently have over 3300 building instructions available online which date back to sets packed in 2002.


This is obviously untrue as I've been looking at RES-Q and Rock Raiders (my two most favorite lines). Man were those sets chunky and packed with parts. You really got a good part to price ratio back then. God the nostalgia is everywhere.

Dude! The Island Hopper was my favorite set from the dinosaurs one, right next to the HQ set. So many memories in these instructions man. Alpha Team, old Star Wars, Arctic, Res-Q, Rock Raiders... so many good lines. I mean they might not be the sets redistributed but the instructions made available is good enough.

Yeah this has been around for a while. Every "product" or theme has instructions in their theme specific section of the website.

I would have, but my character got Falcon punched by a were-pire. Wow, that was a weird sentence. :P

I used the instruction thing to build my two Brickbeard's Bounty ships into a ship the size of the Imperial Flagship one. I did the same thing with my two Black Pearl sets. I might do the very same with the Queen Anne's Revenge, if I ever have the extra dough, or I find two on clearance somewhere.

Yeah, but this is also for discontinued sets, too.

This is awesome! This means when I get my own computer I can just chuck all my instructions out the-- I mean... I could recycle my instructions in the proper bin.

Save the instruction manuals. People pay top dollar for those on Bricklink.

I just can't believe this. I could honestly get back into Lego just to build all those Adventurer Sets. You don't even know how badly I wanted that River Expedition one, or the Dino HQ one. I feel so happy. I actually have these parts. All the bi-planes are square, and flat. There's no fancy new pieces. Temples are set pieces with just straight up pillars. I'm going home today, and digging out all my Lego's. This is the Renaissance!

Have none of your guys ever been here? I've no idea how legal it is, but that'd be the site I've used for years now, whenever I fancied putting together one of my old childhood friends. (Which is almost never, but whatever...)

Brickfactory has even more than that. Thought It's user-submitted, so there are a few sets missing, and most sets get uploaded about a year after they come out.

Funny thing about this is, when I was younger I remember a lot of these sets looking more impressive. If I hadn't sold my lego years ago I might have just rebuilt some of my older sets.

There's no question in my mind that LEGO sets have gotten better over the last few years. A good thing, since they're so expensive now.

May the original AT-ST set never be forgotten:

to be frank, the original LEGO AT-ST set was a piece of crap. It was quite possibly the worst LEGO set ever created. It was tiny, could only seat one pilot, looked nothing like the walker in the movies, had brown and tan legs and feet, and featured a laughable "shuffling action" instead of actual walking ability...

I think Star Wars Legos were the reason I first came to this site and I remember being angry at you for talking bad about Lego. After seeing the picture just now I have to agree with you that that thing looks like crap.

I remember when the Big K-mart went out of business in my neighborhood and they were selling all their Lego Star Wars sets for 5 dollars a piece. My dad let both my brother and I get 50 dollars worth of and I got a couple of these, some B-wings and the Slave I. I don't remember the other sets I got but I remember my brother and I having a some sort of big army battle. Hard to believe that was 10 years ago.
