Hello Brickset Community,

As a fan, collector, and at times, obsessive of LEGO, I would visit the site every so often. Lately I've found myself frequenting the site and forums, daily. I figure I would just join finally.

Just a little more details about me:
I'm an AFOL. As I mentioned, I am a collector, which I've always been. Some things I don't collect anymore like comics, sports cards, and figures. Lego is my main collecting passion now. At times I have to battle with the completist in me, because it hurts the wallet, but also takes time and I would tend to forget about the reason why I started collecting (insert hobby item) in the first place. I know I'll have to consider selling off, at least, a few things.

A few of my favorite LEGO themes are Castle/Kingdome, Pirates, City (includes Trains and Modulars), and minfigs. I love Modulars, and I think they were the reason why I am considering getting into MOCs. Ever since the movies came out, I've been hoping for the LOTR theme - can't wait when June hits.

    Welcome to the board and awesome username! This is where old collectors are born anew again, rising from the ashes to be a shiny new AFOL minifig. I'm also coming from a comic and sports cards collecting childhood, but find Lego to be in a totally different dimension, 3D to be exact and literal. I'm surprised Star Wars and Super Heroes were not on your list. Definitely looking forward to LOTR and having the Fellowship sitting around the table.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Well I would go on and on about themese I like. Yes I like Star Wars, but to a certain degree. I'm a bit picky because of the re-releases. Unless it's a particular set I like individually, like the Slave 1, I prefer getting as close to a scene as possible, like the Hoth sets.

    I'm not that big on the Super Heroes right now.

    My girlfriend is going to kill me for buying 10,000 uruks. LMAO. Ya, that's gonna happen. I'll have to scale the # of uruks to the size of Helms Deep and what I can add to MOC it out some more.
