phantom78: hi from Melbourne, Aust. - just out of my dark ages!

edited February 2012 in Introduce yourself
hello all,
33 year old fan of lego who has just rekindled the fire. had quite a few lego sets as a kid and have managed to keep them all complete with boxes and instructions.

over the last 10 years or so ive had various patches for a few months here and there where ive bought lego. alot ive kept new in sealed boxes but also bought alot of city for my son which we have built. (kept the boxes, instructions and sticker sheets intact of course) :P

have alot stored in a wardrobe, unfortunately the missus has recently declared she wants to reclaim the storage space so in the process of reorganizing i got the bug again. and when my son whos now 11 years old saw me playing with them he put the ps3 controller down and started building them again too!

i had about 220 sets total when i joined brickset a week or two ago and after entering my collection i decided i needed to try and complete the city theme. have already bought about 40 sets in the last week.
have a collecting background was in the trading card industry for quite awhile.
bought half a dozen sets from after clicking the link on brickset so hopefully the webmaster will get some commission.

heres a few pics of my collection:




^the ones my son built on the weekend when we were supposed to be cleaning them up

Found Brickset a great resource and you'll see me around here often i hope

    Hey phantom78. Welcome to the boards. We all hope you enjoy your stay here. I just got out of my dark ages last year, and I'm really looking forward to the Town Hall modular's release.

    Welcome Phantom78, there are plenty of us Aussies around on the various lego sites. Can I make a suggestion? The city sets look way better with the stickers on, so what I do is buy a spare set from bricklink, that way if the originals every crack or get dirty I can replace them. They're quite often cheap too.

    Welcome Phantom78, and I do agree with @stagus :P But you will do fine my friend. I am from Pakistan and my collection of Own and Want is online on Brickset. I also have a store on Bricklink called Pakistan Bricks so if I can help you out with anything do let me know as shipping is quite cheap.

    Nice collection of 80's era LEGO. It looks like they were never too far out of reach :)

    I've noticed that and I've only been on here for a day!

    Hi phamtom78, I like the collection, looks like my bedroom, no room for clothes just lego!

    @rocao, thanks if your comment was meant for me :P and LEGO been always out of reach, as in past my dad used to take me to places like Hongkong and Bangkok so a lot of my old collection is from there. And I just came out of long hibernation and started to buy couple of years back (started off with Fantasy Era, City and Batman 1).

    @Phantom78, amazing collection my friend :)
