I payed 21.60 for a set of 3 different old sets as you could read here past tuesday, so this knocked me back a full 7.20 for the set. Pity it wasn`t sealed, then we would be talking a 100+ euro set which I wasn`t opening.
Dating from a pre-minifigure era, Lego characters back then where brick build figures, on a far larger scale and with a `fixed` torso and head assembly. This set has the grandma, father, mother, son and daughter, all following a same pattern bar grams. She can be made either standing, or as I did, sitting on a bench. This also results in a bit of a different report today, as it would all be rince and repeat otherwise.
Now, the fading on the faces isn`t to heavily, and bar perhaps the white plate grandma sits on, the set is rather well cleaned.
The box is in a good shape, and the instructions are even in a great condition, considering we are talking an open, 41 year old set here. Heck, it even `pre-dates` me by 4 years.
The models all start the same way: a flat plate, and upon that some bricks are `stacked` to give them all different heights.
Girls get skirts, which are created by adding two slopes opposing each other.
Grandma is seated by placing a white plate on two bricks, then here leg `bricks` are rotated towards the back and onto the plate.
It`s a pretty cool set, and definitly gives a special `feel` when you hold something so old in your hands!
