Hi everyone, I've just registered here and wanted to say 'ay up' to you all.
This week I bought my first lego since, well, a long time ago. I used to be properly into lego when I was young. I used to get £1 every Saturday and looked forward to saving up for a few weeks and then going in Woolies in town and getting something new. I had loads of the little trucks and cars (a couple of big plastic storage boxes full) as well as a few of the slightly bigger, slightly less pocket-money-friendly sets. My favourites were 6274
and a couple of the M-TRON sets 6877
Then I 'grew up' and decided I was too old for those bricks and sold them all at a car boot sale for probably a fraction of what they were worth.
Anyway, fast forward about 20 years to this week. I was in Tesco picking up my lunch and there happened to be a few of the Simpsons minifigures blind bags hanging on a display in the crisp aisle. Decided to get a couple just because I'm a massive Simpsons fan, and thought they would look pretty damn cool sitting on my desk.
Well I opened them, and then started looking at the other characters in the series, and then at all of the other minifigures that were available and I think my obsession with all things lego might be starting to awaken again.
I spent the remaining part of the week buying more blind bags and now I know I won't be able to stop until I get the full set. I already have some duplicates, so hopefully I'll be able to trade with some of you...I'm just hoping I don't get too hooked because this could turn into an un-pocket-money-friendly hobby all over again!
