#ThrowbackThursday – 6082 Fire Breathing Fortress

We here are Brick Fanatics HQ are embracing the new big bang theme Nexo Knights. It is slowly winning over even me who these days find it hard to part with money on standard LEGO sets, but there is something about this new theme that just appeals to my inner child. So, with that in mind it got me thinking about cool sets from my youth, and having recently read a fab article in issue 16 of Blocks about Ramp & Pit baseplates from the 90’s, I realised some of my favourite sets came on these.

One set I remember is from 1993. This was when I was on the verge of giving up LEGO for nearly 20 years but it was a cool Castle, not one of the best I’d grant you and only came with 397 pieces but it came with one of the early LEGO dragons and was part of the Dragon Masters sub theme between 1993-1994. Majisto was the LEGO version of Merlin the wizard back then and came in all blue attire. This was the largest set of the theme and came with 6 minifigures and no stickers. It was all printed parts 🙂


Today if you want to add a MISB to your collection it would set you back £200+, but for a used one you can pick one up for a more reasonable £50. So two questions – did you own it? And going back to the Blocks article, which set that used the Ramp & Pit baseplate was your fave? I will cover mine next Thursday.
