Tyco Super Blocks - anyone have instructions, pics?

It's like the old BCS, except the 2.0 makes it fancy. Wondering why you can't post here? Check out the rules and expectations, and it all should be made clear...

Tyco Super Blocks - anyone have instructions, pics?

Postby Wraith_3 » Thu Oct 11, 2012 7:12 pm

Back in the 80s when I was a kid I got some Tyco Super Block sets which are mixed in with my old LEGO bricks that my niece plays with. I tried Google, but there is hardly any info on these sets available. I remember having one space set that built a big AT-AT looking thing, which might be called Astro Walker. I found some set names, but no pictures. Well there are pictures, just, conveniently, not of the ones I had. Does anyone know of anywhere that has pictures of all of their sets or instructions? I thought maybe someone on here might be familiar with these.

If it's the same one I'm thinking of, I had it too. :) Is this it?

No this one was taller and had a red cockpit like the ones in the pic on this page: http://www.ho-scaletrains.net/tycosuper ... id197.html

I think there is a picture of the set you're describing on the page you linked.

Is that it in the upper right-hand corner? If it is, here's your info:
TYCO Super Blocks
317-piece Deluxe Building Set in Storage Case
No.5257 -1986 Release

New in the 1986 catalog, this set is listed as including two spaceman, cockpit and canopy, wings, angles, turrets, panel blocks, large hubs, tires, axles, tractor treads and space accessories.

Yeah that's it, thanks! It has some weird angle pieces (above the USA) that I could never figure out a use for other than that set. That had pieces that let you stick pieces upside down or the female halves of the bricks to each other way before LEGO did.
