About Me

Right... About me.

Well, Lego has always been a part of my life, from the Duck Rattle and Ball Rattle when I was just past 0 right up to that latest set I picked up. I never went through what I'd call a dark age, having bought or been bought Lego since I was old enough to have bricks.

My favourite themes as I grew up were Adventurers and anything Science Fiction, I built plenty of other things along the way, with a special interest in planes, jets and space ships.

When I started to get my own income my buying skyrocketed and has only been increasing since, I buy sets mainly to MOC, but minifigures are always highly tempting. The collectable minifigures have been fantastic for everything but my bank balance!

I joined the online Lego community a number of years ago with an account on MOCpages as a host for side projects related to my Steampunk hobby. However after the experience on a steampunk community forum soured, I was seeking a new place for online comradarie.

Careful research led to Eurobricks. I signed up and started posting about the place with the many MOC themes that attracted me and subjects I was interested in.

I made my presence and self known and was added to the fellow's group. Making a great group of friends. Which motivated me to attend the Event when it arrived in Windsor. I've not missed one since!

I was offered the chance to staff the Action Themes forum after a re-organisation of the boards. Seeing as all the themes it covered were both childhood favourites and current attention grabbers, I jumped at the chance. After a period as regulator I was made Moderator of the forum. Promoting those fun action packed themes that jam a lifetime of nostalgia and fond memory into a handful of waves!

I have been known as many things, mostly as Queen of the Clone Brands (more on that later) once as a Goat... Sometimes as grumpy but always Peppermint.

I have an interest in Clone Brands (or compatible brands), keeping a bit of a knowledge base on the subject. When I was growing up, money was tight and Lego was expensive. Mega Blocks provided a cheap and cheerful way to increase my collection. When their themes started to become less interesting to me, I stopped buying. Once I joined Eurobricks however, I was a little perturbed by the attitudes and decided to at least give reasonable evidence of the merits some brands had. After a little while I was crowned Queen of the Clone brands. I still review the odd set, but recently all my sources have closed down (economic crisis and all that) but if you have questions on anything clone brand related, I can help!

I hope this has been informative to the six or so people who might read this, so see you on the boards!
