minifig_jez highlights a set from the first year of proper minifigures:
Being the youngest of three brothers, in my early years there was lots of Lego around the house, but it was all late 60’s early 70’s basic brick sets, some Homemaker sets with their huge figures, and a few of the old non-articulated Minifigures.
But when Christmas 1979 came along my parents bought me my first proper Lego set of my own, 377 Shell Service Station.
