May the Brick be with you...


Since a newborn child is a huge drain on hobby time, I do not have any hobby related update to show you today but I have permitted myself an addition for one of my many other addictions: Star Wars Lego. As it happens I have been a SW-fan since first seeing the Original Trilogy way back as a kid. Back then the SW action figures were too pricey for my allowance or for my parents pocketbook so I never got any. When I got my own income the stuff had risen to collectors status and the prices went along accordingly. Therefore the release of the Star Wars Lego series was the absolute fun solution. I simply love Lego (but am not an AFOL as such) and the way they done up the SW minifigures is just about a dream come true. At this moment I have an healthy, or rather unhealthy, collection of OT series sets. Last week, overcome with the impressions  of being a father, I ordered a Scouttrooper key-chain, the new Characters Guide and an Advent Calendar. I am now trying to keep the latter closed till the first of December, will I manage this or will I succumb earlier?

Anyway Cheers Sander

Lego is one of the best things ever invented...I thought it was great that having a son I could go out and buy the stuff..unfortunately he is a bit too old for it now..but I´ve managed to aquire a HUGE stash in the couple of years available..:-D

Hello Paul,

Yeah LEGO rules! You can guess that I couldn't wait opening the calendar and am now up to day 6. It delivered some nice minifigs and some mini scale models. The latter I will probably ransack for their component parts but hey that's what LEGO is about right!?
