Is this a sign of too much Lego? Is that even a thing

CommanderRaabCommanderRaab Edinburgh, ScotlandMember Posts: 631
I had a lovely surprise today. I was placing an order through Lego and happened to check out my old orders. I noticed that my order from last year was showing it came with a Darth Revan polybag. I didnt remember this, but then Red5 is still in its cardboard shipping box unbuilt

So I rushed home after work, got the box out and sure enough he is in there. Quite a nice little surprise :) Particularly ironic when over the weekend I was admiring the picture posted under the "White Boba Fett" thread of all the exclusive SW minifigs, and I was lamenting how I hadn't got a Darth Reven and now they were soooo expensive.

    I was digging through my vast amount of Polybags yesterday which are in a 80L RUB. In the bottom there were 54 Series 1 Simpsons Mini-figs that id completely forgotten about. I vaguely remember getting them on sale somewhere with the intention of putting a set together, but there wasn't even a full set amongst the 54.
    Also found a small sealed Lego shipping box the other day amongst my box pile in the loft. It had 4 x white Batman keychains and a Flower Cart poly. Trawled through my purchase history and looks like it was sent when my Santas Workshop was cancelled back in the January sales. 
    Feels like free Lego!

    This reminds me of a story I've read I believe on EB about a guy who bought a DS, only to realize later that he already got a couple (but had forgotten because he had too much Lego).  Don't know if that was true or not ...

    I guess you have too many legos when you call the sets by their initials :o

    Not a thing.

    There is a such thing as not enough display space and a lack of storage room.

    I've only had only had one experience where I've found an unopened box in my collection. I remember I was nearing my 8th birthday and I decided to hide a 7043 in my room somewhere. My thoughts were to leave it for a few years and see if, when I found it again, if I'd still be into Lego when I was older. I was really into it as a kid.

    Anyway a few years went by, people came and went, I moved to various places, the usual sort of growing up thing. Lego was still a large part of my life as it is for all of us but I had a large bunch of it sitting in my room unsorted and in the way. Just after my 18th birthday I found the set again as I was finally sorting my collection out and sure enough my 8 year old self finally got an answer; I adore Lego.

    It was interesting to find a time capsule like that but I wish it could have been an unopened Cloud City. You can't win them all. Moral or the story: clean your rooms and stop buying duplicates you don't need, you might already have some.

    I think it is more of a sign that you don't have enough time to appreciate them!

    the duplicates I have were probably gifts. or sets I won. well, I didn't mind having a bunch of bat lords, for the dragons...
