Lifelong lego fan, but I suppose you could say I entered my Dark Age around age 14 (2004ish). Once I graduated college, moved in with my future wife, etc, I wanted to begin collecting, but never had the space in our condo. Plus, I was spending LOTS of money on another hobby at the time. I did however buy a Saturn V with the hopes of having room for it one day. Once we bought a house in 2017, and I got my own office, I started buying actively buying. Even though I really want EVERYTHING, space and money make me selective. 

I mostly focus on themes near and dear to me, like Wizarding World, LOTR/Hobbit, Star Wars and Speed Champions. Creator Expert is great, too. I also love old themes from my childhood, plus some of the other Ideas sets. Also, I wish I had every single Creator Expert Modular, but I own zero, again due to money and space. As I've gotten older, I've become more and more frugal in all aspects of my life, so Lego is always a guilty pleasure for me. I've noticed that as my hobby has progressed over the past couple of years, I've been more inclined to buy something (or two of something) just to have it, rather than to build and display. I know myself well enough to know that that's when things spiral out of control, so I must be careful :)

I probably don't have much to contribute to the forums, as I am mostly in learning mode still. Maybe I'll post a few comments here and there. I am mostly here for news. So, this is my long winded hello.

P.S. I am a total sucker for polybags and microscale. They are some of my favorite sets!

    Welcome! Polybags help with the space and money limitations. :)

    The nice thing about the Saturn V is it doesn’t take up much space when displayed vertically :)

    from what I read on the saturn V here, I must be the only one who is slightly disappointed after building it. the size is impressive, but I don't find there are many interesting details to look at. still pretty cool, but a bit bland compared to other large models I own.

    It might be bland, relatively speaking @Fauch, but that's because it's extremely accurate. I am still amazed by what an amazing model it is.
