What I wanted

Browsing through the archive, I found sets that I wanted so badly, that I have keep flipping through the catalog inserts, fantasizing of owning. Of course, there were non-stop nagging…

I have always wanted a service station. I called it “gas station” then. I really wanted the tubes and the accessories from the set.

6990 Monorail Transport System (1987)
I was hoping to get this monorail system so that I could build a roller coaster. I would imagine building my roller coaster when I was flipping through the catalog (again and again) during bedtime.

6399 Airport Shuttle (1991)
And the airport shuttle too… same idea.

6374 Holiday Home (1983)
I wanted this set because I wanted the mailbox and the awning so badly.

And the train sets. All of them. I couldn’t get any of them them because I was in my teenage years. My mom just wouldn’t get me any more of the city sets, she thought I was too old for them. She had no problem getting me Technics, but I still wanted to build cities and houses… so no train set for me until I was making money for myself later on.
