Hi all.

Just over a year ago I got back into building Lego Technic after being away from it for 15 years.  It all started off when I brought the Compact Excavator (8047) thinking it would be cool to play around with on my desk, I now own 19 sets!
I’ve just moved house so once I unpack the sets I will post a photo of my collection so far.

Very nice!  I have around the same amount and among them are those three.  I received set 8063 as a gift and that got me back into Lego Technic after many years away.  It has been fun so far catching up!

Welcome!  

Your story sounds familiar.  I just got back into LEGO about 2.5 years ago.  

It's nice to see another Technic builder on the forum!   :thumbup:

Well, awesome!  I'm from NC too....I'm down in Fayetteville.    I think there are about 7 or 8 Technic builders from the USA on this forum.   Check this thread for more info.   I don't know of any other Technic builders in NC.


There is a big LEGO show in Raleigh on May 17th-20th.  www.brickmagic.org  Paul Boratko, another Technic builder from PA, will be attending and has some fantastic MOCs that will be on display.  

We also have a North Carolina LUG, NCLUG, that meets once a month at the Cameron Village Library in Raleigh.  Next meeting is on Saturday, April 14th.

That would be Blakbird (a.k.a. Eric Albrecht, the "Technic Angel of Retribution"  :cry_happy: ) -- he owns EVERY Lego Technic set every released!  His Blakbird's Technicopedia website is a great reference.

I've been wondering: What exactly are the dark ages? Times you have like no time to design legos or what? :wacko:

From what i have heard, it is usually when the entire colelction is either sold or packed up into moms attick while the young adults grow up.  After some time later, possibly when they even have kids, they rediscover the magic of legos and either buy back a collection or rescue it from their moms attic  :wink: .
