Hi. I played with Legos as a kid, but as I got older, I left them behind. I did become a collector, but not of Legos. My primary collecting interests are action figures (mainly Transformers and Star Wars.)
I met my boyfriend six years ago, and he is super into Legos. Over the past few years, I have been creeping closer and closer to Lego, thanks to my bf's influence. We bought the Death Star together. I picked up Ewok Village last year. And then the Lego Movie came out, and now I'm knee-deep in Legos of my own. It's hard to believe that six years ago, the only set I owned was the Lego Cameraman (1357), a 20 piece set.
Another fun note: a couple years ago, my mother was cleaning out the basement and offered my boyfriend all of the old Legos my older brothers and I used to play with. I saw tons of random pieces in plastic boxes, but he figured out where they came from, and we rebuilt all of the old sets! He's a big Lego Space fan, and there was even some Space stuff that he didn't have.
So anyway, over the past year, I've built a few The Lego Movie-themed creations, and I was wondering what the best sub-forum is to post photos of that stuff.
