Hi There, Eurobricks community, My name is, well, you can call me Brick Pilgrim or just Pilgrim for short. I joined a couple days ago and have had a look 'round. However, this is my first post in the forum. I have many hobbies (which is probably why I don't get around to doing much in any of them): Lego Reading Writting Music (Performance and Composing) Watching YouTube (okay, I'm not sure that's a hobby, but I do enjoy watching videos with a critical mind especially documentaries and movies) and many more I've considered narrowing them down a bit and Lego is at the top of my list so we'll see if I can finally come out of the mini-dark ages I've been slipping into every once and a while. Well that's about it. Happy building everyone!
Hi everyone! It's been 6 years since I last visited this amazing Lego site and after resetting my forgotten password, I am now back for the second time round! My name is Aaron and I last posted here in 2008. Back then I really rediscovered my lost childhood love of Lego, and I fell back in love with the shiny little plastic bricks hard! Unfortunately, after a good few months of posting on here and building various unfinished projects, I slowly started to lose interest and once those magical little bricks were tidied away, they have stayed there ever since. I am now living in my own flat with my (ever so understanding) girlfriend, but my countless boxes of Lego are still stored at my parents house (though not for long I'm sure ). Recently I found myself itching to have another go at it. I have just purchased a few bargain sealed Lego City sets from the last few years and should be building them within the next few days (around the daily work grind ). Fun builds with lots of pieces, such as the 4439 Police Heavy-Lift Helicopter for £20.00 and I've just picked up the 4436 Police Patrol Car for only £5.00. Looking at the latest sets, It's amazing how intricate the designs are now, with so many new parts and building techniques implemented. I did find it quite difficult to go through with it and spend my hard earned money, on what most people think as children's small plastic building blocks. But I like to think that by having such a massive interest in Lego as a child, it helped me become who I am today in adult life. I am a very hands on person who is always interested in how things are made and how they work. I do moan a little at how expensive Lego is these days, but I am surprised at how the quality of current Lego products is still so high! I would much rather them keep their quality high, than cut corners or cheapen the bricks. So I understand that for this reason, the prices have to increase with today's economical climate. I am in need for an enjoyable hobby, one where I can really stretch my now dwindling adult imagination. Maybe a hobby that lets you just escape this harsh world you slowly discover as you get older. I have now chosen to buy some Lego, to rediscover some of that enjoyment and imagination I had as a kid. I also hope to interact with other Adult Fans of Lego on these forums, it's been a while since I participated in any social forums online but I know how much fun they can be and especially this one. So I hope to have a good old chat with you lovely people, Lego is an amazing system indeed and it's nice that we can all share our enjoyment of it with others here at the Eurobricks forums. Thank you
Do they affect your hobbies that have nothing to do with Lego to your Lego constructions?. In my case I've drawn all my life and I think that helps me a lot in my MOCs but certainly not in the mechanical part , which curiously never liked, until now. The fact that I like rugby because I played it as a prop and that I've been lifting weights almost 20 years, I think it just helps me breaking more bricks of the account... Obvious thing is that all my life I liked the heavy machinery.
