Hi from London!

Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum but have been visiting this site for quite a while now. I've been in the dark ages for a fair while, so most of my current Lego is from when I was a kid (90s). I am planning on getting some architecture and creator sets soon as I need some 'grown up' Lego lol. Having said that I went to my first Afol meet on Monday and built Mighty Micros. It was the first time I met other adult Lego fans apart from my dad and it was a really enjoyable evening ...Especially more so as I could be proud of my love of Lego. I'm really interested to find out what people are building at the moment? Let me know, I need some ideas!

    Hi @boad! Good to have you. You'll find that all Lego can be grown up Lego - even Duplo has it's place (at the bottom of a mountain range, to be cost-effective). There's a thread all about what people are building, along with others on a vast range of other topics - I'd suggest you have a browse, read some of the later pages of long threads and then just join in with the conversation. You'll find us all very friendly. :-)

    Hi @boad

    Just to give you a heads-up, Technic is the only Lego worth considering.  Everything else is just "mucking about with kids' toys".

    Hi welcome to the forum. I'm fairly new to the forum to (fairly new to doing anything on the Internet). I was going to go to the AFOLs meet up on Monday but had a bad case of wimping out. Bit shy me. Anyway maybe I will meet you next meet up.

    Hi @boad - glad you enjoyed yourself on monday :D

    For the last year or so, I've been mostly building things around the M:Tron theme from the very early 90s (how can you go wrong with magnets?)

    Obviously the best models though are those that combine both Duplo and Technic.

    Thanks for the replies guys! @bookmum you should definitely come next time. @NeilCrosby traditional Lego is very appealing to me. However I did like the look of the technic parts on Monday :D. Guess I will see you next month, have rsvp'd

    Duplo and technic together? That sounds great.
