I am completely new to LEGO, but recently bought some of the LEGO games for Mac OS X. After watching me play, my little boy decided he now wants LEGOs to play with. So, I started browsing around and found your forum. It's been a nice resource, and helped me make some decisions.
So far, I've bought Hogwarts Castle (4842), Riddles for the Ring (79000), and An Unexpected Gathering (79003). None of them have arrived yet. I am saving them for the upcoming holidays. I don't think I'm done yet.
I never had LEGO toys when I was a kid, but they sure look more intricate than they did back then. Now that I am a mom, I am looking forward to helping my boy put together these sets. I also have my eye on Diagon Alley (10217), for me!
I did want to pop in and say hello, and how much I have enjoyed reading the threads here.

Trust me, it's not impressive compared to a lot of folks on this forum. I am usually very frugal but LEGO has been an exception. I also am a bit of a completist (not a hoarder) so when my interest in a theme is piqued I tend to purchase all of the sets. I am very fortunate to be at a point in my life (kids grown and financially independent) where I don't have too many financial obligations. Now I just need the time to build them and really enjoy them.
I just ordered another one on eBay. My first sets haven't even arrived yet.
excusereason of having children. I guess it was about 2 years ago when I got into LEGO (though I did love LEGO as a kid), and what really set my addictionhobby in motion was discovering the modular buildings. First I got the Fire Brigrade, then I "had" to have the Grand Emporium. Last Christmas my wife (at the time fiance) got me the Pet Shop. Now, I'm plotting how to get the Palace Cinema and Town Hall. Then they annouce the Parisian restaurant, and it is, of course, beautiful....And I love trains, so of course I had to have a train circling my town, and plenty of cool vehicles, and...Gandalf, why not?
I'm sure I could stop anytime...I just don't want to. Welcome aboard!
Your LEGO town sounds very nice. :-)
Seems like your advice fell on deaf ears, as @LEGOnovice said: I just ordered another one on eBay. My first sets haven't even arrived yet.
Too late carlq, she's one of us now. ;)
