G'day from an Aussie in England
G'day my name is CJ, I am an Australian living in England and I am addicted to LEGO. Phew, glad I got that off my chest. An AFOL I believe you call it.
As a lot of you can probably tell due to the lack of posts, I am newbie on here. One could say I of late I have had a strange idea, urge, or whatever you would like call it, to invest my hard earned cash in copious amounts of LEGO. I don't just mean one or two sets.
It all started about 3 months ago whilst wandering aimlessly around the Liverpool One LEGO store, when my little boy (3 1/2 year old) decided to say that he was too old for Duplo. I am not sure how he came up with the idea he was too old for Duplo, however he wanted big boy LEGO. Naturally I said fair enough and started him off on the City range.
As I started helping him build I found a strange enjoyment, excitement maybe, and decided to invest in some sets for myself that I would just build and create to keep on display. I started with the LOTR series and before I knew it, the whole set had been bought and built. I then moved onto the most recent of the Harry Potter sets after finding a guy in Belguim willing to ship me the majority of them on a good deal. I decided then to start on the Mini Figures with him and we started with Series 7, then 6, and so on. Now I have the majority of the series and am just missing a handful from both Series 1 and Series 2. I dread to think how much they have cost me. Hahaha
Now my little boy has most of the recent City set, I have LOTR and Harry Potter, along with the latest 4 modular buildings for myself for Christmas. Haha sad I know.
Anyway that is me, and G'day once again.

BTW, if you haven't yet, pickup a Fire Brigade (10197), wonderful build and very fun to play with or just display. Then you have so many more sets to add from the modular line!! :)
LegoFanTexas, how'z it goin?
Yeah I have that in the parcels to myself. I have so far;
The fire brigade
And the Pet shop.
I am in two minds whether to build them or just leave them boxed. Decisions decisions.
I fancy trying to build my own little town maybe in the style of the mini modulars.
Build the Fire Brigade, then decide about the others. They are adult sets meant for adults, they are much more detailed and interesting to build than the City sets. Give one a try, if you like it, open the others, if you don't, then don't. :)
Ahhhh strange how us Aussies don't like Australia yet the rest of the world does.
I keep telling her I'll go in July, but it is winter there then and she doesn't like the cold. :)
Anyway, welcome CJ.
I'm always at the Lego store whenever I can! Only about 20 minutes away.
So next time I'm in the Liverpool shop, I've to listen out for an Aussie accent then?
By the way, welcome to Brickset!
