Just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a relatively new AFOL. I was a Lego Maniac as a child, but spent 10 years in my dark ages before emerging 2 years ago. I was playing with the children of a friend of mine, and we brought out the Lego bin. In moments I had reconnected with my love of the little plastic pieces.
My first set after coming into the light was 6211, the Imperial Star Destroyer, which was a gift. I'm not really a Lego Star Wars fan, but it was a great start to my brick collection. For the most part, I'm a Castle/Kingdoms collector. I also go for Pirates, Indiana Jones, Prince of Persia, Modular buildings, Harry Potter, City, Creator... well, most any Lego, really. I'm quite excited by TLotR announcement.
For the most part I have been collecting and building sets. Other than a few small builds, I've only just started MOCing now that my collection has grown to the point where I don't feel limited. There are so many amazing brick artists out there. It's a little intimidating, but highly inspiring.
I’ve been hanging around Brickset for a while, using it to keep track of my sets and checkout reviews, etc. I figure it’s time to come out into the open.
So hi everyone! :)

We've a backlog of Christmas presents to construct but then are planning to start MOCing too, don't know what but we're fascinated by microbuilding so we may start there.
Glad you decided to speak up :)
I haven't really thought about microbuilding. The MOCs I've seen are fantastic, but I guess I'm just such a fan of the minifigure that all my throughts have gone that direction.
Of course monkey_roo is offering to share his plans of his Tinkerbell MOC so we may just be sidetracked into copying him.
monkey_roo's Tink is a lovely little minifig, isnt she! I want a set of those wings.
