  1. When I came out of my DA in the early 1990s, I didn't know there were other AFOLs. I supposed there might be but the internet was in its infancy and it didn't occur to me that there might be other collectors of historical/castle/fantasy minifigs (and buildings) that I could trace. So in my own mind, I was a pioneer: defying society's norms that adults don't buy kids' toys for themselves (except, possibly, train collectors and investors in classic toys). Is it wrong of me to take pride in being an AFOL pioneer, getting myself LEGO when I didn't know for sure that other AFOLs were out there? The other day I was in WH Smiths feeling packets for a Mr Burns from the Simpsons CMF line. The staff assumed correctly that I was looking for minifigures for myself and asked me to identify minifigs for them while I was at it which I did. What a contrast from when I used to buy LEGO from a store called Boswell's over 20 years ago and tried to make it look like I wasn't buying it for me! I probably sound like an old gasbag when I say that young AFOLs don't know how lucky they are.
