alright, riding on my neighbors internet (idiot didnt have a password), and it really slow. at long last, i did get a pretty good product out between skiing, movie marathons, and sleep. here it is, along with a chart to see what years line up where up until 1900.
ImageImage

to get all the years line up with one title each and some roundabout connection to the name, some were quite a stretch.

brikthulhu- end of the world, turn of the modern era, not really a stretch. (also my birth-year)
Super tank- people been makin em.
minifig- modern one came out in '78
mech- natalya's AC in 2009
protofig-hospital 555 came out in 1976
trianglism-started in 2007
undead-bit of a stretch, since the skelton's release conflicted, so instead, i just lined it up with Ole Kirk's death year, which is 1958. (he founded lego)
rules- most current official version is the 2005.
otc-conflicted with every date i could find even the leas connection with, so i just put it opposite brikthulhu because only the otc should have that honor.
armoured car-also, most dates conflicted, but in 2003 lego released an armoured car.
pirate-conflicing with release, so i put the re-release date, 2002.
dsm-most 'classic space' sets released in 1985.
castle-reign of king leo begins in 2000. (release date conflicts)
iceworlder-release date conflicted with three others, so in 1999 the last iceworld set was re-released under a different name 5 years after the theme officially ended.
2*2-lego trademarked and official in 1934, lego is 'born,' so to speak.
Ship-was gonna use the date of the orginal SONKS for this, but that was taken. instead, in 1981, spacehip design was revolutionized in lego with the release of starfleet voyager.

alos, while looking for pics, i came across this. it would appear rayhawk has been merchandising.

EDIT: finished and was gonna post at midnight last, but internet was down untill this morning. but with that, happy year of the super tank.

Born in the year of the OTC.

This zodiac seems uncannily plausible now. :D

I agree, I mean they make the best targets. Standing there taller then most other vehicles, allowing my targeting software to find them with ease and then my missiles turn them into wonderful piles of Mech parts and melting plastic.

I just love Mecha. :wink:

This is excellent. Also, year of the proto-fig. So some friends of mine with a little kid were at a Chinese restaurant, and the menu had the zodiac around it, of course. But the year of the rooster was called "cock" instead, which happened to be his birth year. So he yelled "I'm a cock!."

Born in the year of the super tank. I know what I must do. I say we patch this together with the brikcensus data and try to figure out each years general personality type. Or just make shit up. Either way, fun times.
