I've been lurking for a few years and as I have had a few days off work (laser eye surgery ... ouch) have decided to sign up.
I was a great fan of lego as a child (my parents encouraged it, as they could get a lie in whilst I ... created). My son started collecting lego when he was about five. Of course I helped him build (He got the Sand Crawler for one Christmas and it was like a present to myself!!). This got me back into it and I have been collecting minifigures ever since. Me and my son now have a very comprehensive lego collection now across all themes (technic, SW, IJ, Atlantis, Toy Story, Power miners and I have a soft spot for the modular buildings).
I get severly mocked (not MOCed) by my family and friends, but who cares eh!
Here are some pictures of my minifigure collection (some duplicates from my post to the SW forum):
