Today we are talking to Michael, aka Alrighty, who's a Senior Healthcare Consultant in Georgia, USA:
What is your first LEGO Memory?
I was six years old, playing with Hot Wheels in our musty basement. My dad comes down the wooden stairs; he had just returned from one of his frequent business trips. He hands me a copy of Time Cruisers 6491 Rocket Racer.
Even at six years old, I remember thinking, "What the heck is this supposed to be?" Little did I know that was the sentiment for most of this theme! I loved the way the propellers turned when the wheels turned. The trans-orange 2 x 2 cylinder bricks formed "power cores" for many of my future LEGO vehicle creations, and the yellow engines were coveted parts for my spaceships! I recently dug up the figure for this set and marvelled how this was the start of a life-long habit.
