Do you get catalogs and what do you do with them?
Posted 07 September 2009 - 07:51 PM
I, of course, don't read the catalogs to find out about new sets anymore. On a place like Eurobricks, we've all known about any new sets for months (unless LEGO really wants to keep it a secret). I read them because it's fun to look at real, printed pictures of all the sets, and laugh at all the crazy mistakes LEGO makes in the catalog (check out the Plo Koon head with a Clone body for Ackbar in the inset pictures in the most recent one).
On top of that, I've kept all the catalogs I've received since 1998 organized by year to go back and peruse from time to time just for fun…
So, does anybody else have these habits? Has anybody else kept there catalogs, and do they look at them?
I hope this could be an interesting discussion…

I look at it, then it is my little brother's turn, then my mother browses the City section and my other brother the Star Wars section. Then it makes its way to the recycling box.
If there was no such thing as science; you'd be right.

They are all organized in order.

I skim through them every now and then. That's where most of my knowledge about obscure Lego facts has come from.

On every school day, I bring the latest LEGO catalog into the car to read while waiting for there to be 5 minutes before school starts (around 15 minutes of catalog reading time).
Also, I always request for one or two more catalogs from LEGO S@H, so I can keep them mint.

I took some spare copies and placed the current copy in my briefcase just for viewing pleasure and a few catalogs in my office, to take them out to view them during my breaks. I find them very nice to look at, and somehow it do encourages you to buy all of the featured sets to fix up the scenes that it is trying to illustrate. Love those System sets themes.

I don't know your exact term of 'organized' but I do have a pile of the current Shop at Home catalogs.

I collect the catalog in my place and I already have the catalog from 1992 to 2009 second half.
I wonder if anyone would like to exchange his/her spare catalogs with others in the world.
So that more catalogs can be collected!
