Hey folks, long time reader, first time poster (well, conversation starter)
Like most of you, Ive had Lego as far as I can remember and always played with it. Over the years, I bought the odd set that looked cool (Star Wars YWing and Tie fighter, speederbikes and land speeder) but as I was a student didnt have much money, that was saved for booze. Sorry, books, that was saved for books!
I saw sets pop up and was like wow, that great and Id buy the odd ones, like Indiana Jones etc, that, i never got round to building and is till in my mums loft.
Then I came across more and more cool stuff Id missed out on, and over the last 24 months, have bought what I felt like, some i have built, some I havent room for. After adding stuff to Bricklink, I had a heart attack at its worth and was like, OMG, thats a years mortgage payment!!! I bought a second car recently, and said to myself, lego has to take a back seat, and, it lasted about a month. I said id buy the new MF only, as I have over half off it paid for in VIP points! But, I cant get one lol.
So, my questions are these;, Im not a collector I dont think, I'm a part builder, im part buy what I want, part displayer (911 GT3, new UCS Tie and Xwing, a few minifigures), and part hoarder/never got round to building and now my Ferrrai FXX and Indy sets are worth way more than I paid for them, what do I do? They are sat doing nothing in the boxes, but I cant display all that I have. I am concerened I have an addiction, and Im not sure if im an AFOL, collector, interested party or what!
So, what am I? Am I mad? Do i fit anywhere in a Lego category, or, worse still, as I keep on buying (smaller sets mainy and recent TRU Bricktober sets) am I addicted? Has anyone ever stopped?
Lots or random nonsense I have just written above, but, I do wonder if I need help!!!!
Anyone else know how i feel?
