I'm only 18, in my senior year of high school.
I've been playing with LEGO for literally as long as I can remember.
I first got involved with MF0 when my dad asked if I wanted to help playtest a game he was making...

27 on the edge of 28 in a couple of weeks.

Been playing with Lego since I was maybe 5 or 6. First set that I can remember was... one of the old aliens of mars sets. The ones with the TONS of neon yellow/green clear bits and parts.

45. My oldest bricks are from the Samonsite days, where the logos on the studs don't all match, even on the same brick.

I couldn't remember if I ever posted to this thread or not...

I'm 43 now. I saw Star Wars and Godzilla vs. Megalon in the theater in the same year when I was 6 years old. And I am afraid both had a massive influence on my psyche.

I came to the LEGO hobby pretty late in life actually. I never really played with legos as a child. In fact my favorite childhood toy was a stick. (That stick was pretty amazing.) I purchased Mega-Bloks back during the year when they actually outsold LEGO. Yes, the Dragon sets. The main bulk of My LEGO collection started about two years ago. I love miniatures and games, but the logistics of paint and pewter and dimming vision coupled with less than steady hands has moved me to embrace building bricks above paint pots and metals.

Last June I had some problems with my ticker, and that's lead to some lifestyle changes. That coupled with a computer crash combined to greatly limit my participation here on the Hangar and on the Flickr group. I'm working to rectify that when I can. I got sucked into a brief excursion into Hero Factory and CCBS but I'm slowly coming back around to frame building again.

My Loadout is:
d6W d6W --- For Being a Thing
d6B --- Stolid Phlegmatism
d6Y --- Introspective Observation
d6Rh d6Rh --- Sarcastic Tongue
d8Rr d8Rr d8Rr --- Occasional Outbursts of Narcissistic Rage

No, I do not get the d8G for Sprinting.

Not bad for a self reporting survey.

Chalk another up in the twenties. I am (and have been for quite some time) a quarter of a century old. Maybe I'll place a huge Bricklink order for my upcoming birthday.

19 here, I think oldest thing I had besides hand me downs/garage sale of old plastic tuns was the old Star Wars sets, back when destroyer droids looked right and actually folded into a ball ;)

I just turned 30, and this is the first set I remember getting. I got it for Christmas, I'm pretty sure I was 4. My parents didn't have a lot of money for LEGO, so I got mostly smaller sets. They usually saved up and got me something nice for Christmas though. Caribbean Clipper, Interstellar Starfighter, and Deep Freeze Defender will forever be three of my all time favorites.

I may not have posted much yet or even played an actual game of MFZ, but I might as well note that I'm in my teens.
The oldest sets I remember having were hand me down Exo-Force sets from my brother (http://brickset.com/sets/7707-1/Striking-Venom and http://brickset.com/sets/7708-1/Uplink)
I have had LEGO as long as I can remember. I was really hyped when I first saw Power Miners sets in a LEGO catalog. Thoses were some of the coolest sets... :D

27, working in an explosives factory for Airbags.

My first set I remember for me was when I was 7. Lego Spyrius 6949-1, Robot Guardian. Guess that started my obsession with robots!
