If LEGO wasn't draining your wallet....

What would you do with all the spare cash if you weren't spending any of it on LEGO? I might buy a new guitar, maybe get into collecting action figures.

I would buy some Airfix models. I got one recently and it was great fun! But I can't be beaten by a plastic Spitfire....

I'm moving this to Community, as it's not really about LEGO... all the opposite actually!

Nevermind, it's already been moved!

I'd probably go to more science fiction / fantasy conventions, see more movies, buy more movies on Blu-ray / DVD, have a Blu-ray player and an HDTV to watch them on, buy more soundtrack CDs, buy more books, and/or do more traveling. Alas, I not only can't afford to do any of those as much as I'd like, I can't afford to buy as much LEGO, either. I have too many interests and too little money to divvy amongst them all.

*sigh*

Eh? I have a few hobbies that I split my "entertainment budget" on, not exclusively LEGO:

- Last gen video games (PS2, Xbox1, Gamecube)

- Green Lantern comics (although I've mostly stopped)

- Movies, although I only buy a limited genre of comedy

- Magic: The Gathering (but again, I haven't bought new cards in about a year, and have been only messing around with cards I already have)

The division swings every few months or so. I'm stocked up on LEGO for now (still sealed) so there is a good chance I won't buy any more this year. I also bought a bunch of movies last month, so I may not buy any more there for a while either.

Maybe I'll buy a new Magic deck, then.

If I have spare cash and don't want to spend it on LEGO, then I must be so incredibly rich that there is nothing more I could possibly want from LEGO, which means that I must have so much LEGO that the next step would be to buy containers to sort all that LEGO into. And maybe hire a few people to do my sorting for me.

I'd start spending it on LEGO again and wonder why the hell I stopped in the first place. :laugh:

In all honesty, I have no idea. It's funny, I'm always a bit hesitant to get anything for myself that's not LEGO, but if I'm not getting LEGO, then looking at it there's not all that much I'd buy besides it. :tongue:

Paying off my mortgage sooner. :classic:

This is a fun question. I was just thinking about getting back into Warhammer 40K. I really enjoyed the painting aspect and they have some cool new vehicles for Space Marines. I did a bit of a mental tally, but thought, if I buy this stuff that's money I could be buying LEGO with. :wacko: I'd also buy more video games and books.

Loving LEGO is as much a curse as it is a joy. :cry_happy:

Well first I'd buy this Petzl caving helmet and light system:

Then I'd buy this caving jumpsuit:

Then I'd buy a few hundred feet of rope, a new ascender and a new descender, and a few new flashlights and do this:

This is the other hobby that Lego takes me away from...

If Lego wasn't draining my wallet, I could do a lot more things. :laugh:

First off, I would fix up my house to make it look nice and maybe even expand.

I would also spend more money on hobbies such as skateboarding, longboarding, surfing, and soccer.

Also, I would invest to open up a taco shop with my brother that we have been wanting to do for years now.

Lastly, I would spend some money to make sure I don't get addicted to Lego again. :tongue:

I love music, maybe new headphones, or speakers.

I also would spend money on a new laptop or this Acer Lamborghini external hard drive..

Also broke my squash racquet... :look:

Hmmm.... Not spending money on Lego - I cringe at the thought, but in an alternate universe where there is no Lego to be had, where would my money go?

I've always wanted a modest little yatch, like maybe Hinckley's Sou'wester 61

A summer house on a lake would be nice, and of course if you own a lake house you need to have kayaks and maybe a small daysailor.

And New England winters can be pretty rough so a beach house in Florida would offer a refreshing alternative.

Wow, this exercise is making me think that perhaps I'm spending a little _too_ much on my collection.

I would buy a grand piano, a select few DVDs and enough books (and shelves) to turn a room into a library/music room. And probably also a new laptop.

I think I would spend it on videogames and DVDs and maybe some other collectible toys. :laugh:

I probably spend enough on lego to join a go-kart racing team. So I would probably do that.
