Hello Brickset members. I am attempting to write this first forum post, to introduce myself to you all, and tell you a little bit about my Lego addiction. As a child, I remember Lego was the one thing I always played with (I would build sets, MOCs, and random other creations). I had a great time with Lego, and it became something very special in my heart (it became more than a hobby, but an unequaled passion in my life).
As time went by, and I started growing older (into my teenage years), my interest faded (as the amount and pressure of school work increased). I wasn't able to spend as much time (if any), building with the fantastic plastic and entered my first so-called "dark age". It was a period I now look back on today, with much disappointment. Staying away from a hobby, for any period of time is hard, and for me I found this extremely difficult.
However, within the last week my interest in Lego has reignited, this time as an AFOL. I am very glad that I have re-discovered a hobby which brought me so many fantastic memories. The first set I bought, as an AFOL, was the Ultimate Battle for Asgard. I'm quite amazed to say that the detail of the minifigures and the quality of the set has increased. It is truly remarkable.
So that's my story. Just a few quick questions before I leave you all to your own devices; asides from the Ultimate Battle of Asgard, what other 2017 sets should I be looking to buy in the back-half of the year; should I start a Lego related YouTube channel; and should I consider joining my looking LUG. Any answers to any of these questions would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read, I really appreciate it.
