Hello from New England, USA!

real_jonny_greal_jonny_g ME, USAMember Posts: 12
Hello all. I was approved for being added to the forum back in July of 2020, and never introduced myself. Been on Brickset for a few years maybe, to keep track of my collection and try to keep myself updated on the AFOL world. Started collecting back in 2017 after watching an episode of "The Toys That Made Us" on Netflix. It wasn't the LEGO one, but one with the Star Trek theme. Was with a buddy while watching and we got to talking about LEGO. Few weeks later I visited LEGO's Shop at Home site and the rest is history.

I hadn't had a lot of what I collected starting in 2017 built till the beginning of 2020. With limited space living in the south eastern part of the States, and a cross country move that was inevitable, I held off. Now, with a finished basement at my disposal, the set building and further collecting has ensued.

Not sure if its against the forum guidelines to share Instagram info. I'll check that out and if I can share, I'll post a comment so anyone interested can check out what I'm currently building.

Happy building you all!

    Welcome to the forums officially! I always love hearing how people found themselves back in the world of LEGO after a period away (or in some cases, found LEGO for the first time). Glad you've been able to find the space to start building! 

    Others can correct me if this is wrong, but I'm fairly certain that Instagram links are completely fine to be shared.

    Welcome and please definitely feel to share your Instagram info. There are threads dedicated to sharing photography if you wish to share specific posts from time to time, but certainly just sharing a link to your account here would be welcome.

    Haha. I cannot call my self an actual New Englander, as I have zig zagged my way east across the country throughout my life. But we're here now! Thanks for the welcome @piratemania7!!!

    Wicked nor'easter out there tonight! Born in Maine and moved to Mass for college. Moved to CA a few years back for work...but a Sox fan for life!

    Nice @PDelahanty! I'm actually a transplant myself. Born in CO, lived in TX for 12 years, then MI for 15. SC for 7 years and now Maine. Been here for almost 2 years now. The nor'easter was pretty wild. But I've definitely seen worse. Glad that not much closes down even when those roll through, whereas in SC, just a dusting would close down Wal-Mart. Haha.

    When (almost) everyone is vaccinated and this stupid pandemic is a bad memory and we're all able to go out to crowded malls again, I hope Lego finally opens up a store in the Rockingham Park Mall in New Hampshire.  I'd be handy for New Englanders to be able to pop over to NH for some tax-free Lego sets.  (Not worth it for small ones, but maybe when you're about to drop a few hundred...)

    A LEGO staw in Rawkin' ham Paahk would be WICKED PISSAH!!
    It would give Burlington and Peabody a run for their money, and it would make a whopping 5TH LEGO store in the region.  Ya, it's an embarrasment of riches in the gray-tah Boston area.  I am a reformed Masshole and fled north to Maine long ago, but I still can't stop saying laaahj iced coffee at the Dunkin' drive through.  You guys know, right?  VIVA BRADY NUMBAH 12, GO PATS! (ugh, I just threw up a little)

    I was born in Maine and then moved to MA later.  You could always hope that Lego opens a store at the Maine Mall or...uh...  Well, that's pretty much the only hope you've got.  The thought of a Lego store at the Auburn Mall or Bangor Mall is laughable!
  • lowleadlowlead USAMember Posts: 84
    Ayuh!
    Laughable indeed...I think the Auburn Mall made the list on deadmalls.com.  Yep!  Just checked =D  Bangor isn't far behind.
    I'm sure everyone here has already deciphered the pattern: LEGO retail stores follow the communities with money.  Rockingham would make sense, but TLG would be directly competing with itself - especially when you can drive 5 minutes north of the New Hampshire border and save almost $50 on a Star Destroyer!

    It’s a tax thing, limiting liability...
