New AFOL (UK) coming out of a 40+ year Dark Age
Well, after some debate on whether to raise my head or not, here I am.
I have been feeling something strange drawing me to the Lego universe over the last year or so, though its really grown frantically over recent weeks. I think it was in part glimpsing Blocks magazine in WH Smith's on occasion and sneakily taking a peak hoping I wouldn't be seen (now I wish I'd bought those back issues). But then I kind of stumbled across a Lego Brickumentary which really got my juices flowing.
I remember (vaguely) playing with Lego as a kid some 40+ years ago, and watching my now grown up boys play with it during their childhood and since then have stored a reasonable sized tub of it Lego in the shed.
I've been dying to get the tub out and have a rummage through it and did just that last weekend. There's a real mix of parts, many of which go back as far as 1957 and other dating around late 80's/90's. I have washed and sterilised it and am in the process of getting it dry and sorted.
My wife hasn't quite figured out why I'm doing this just yet, I'm trying to break it to her gently.
Aside from sorting these parts I have purchased a small lot of lego pieces, and an Exo Suite kit (not received yet), as well as a few books. I can see already that this is going to get very expensive.
Note sure yet what theme I want to focus on, but am drawn to the Dr Who and Ghostbusters ideas sets as well as Star Wars.
I look forward to getting any guidance I can from you folks and will be doing some searching on the forum regarding storage advice.
Look forward to talking to you all on the forum.
