Rediscovering Lego - Hello from Monterey Bay

Hi everyone!

It's so nice to stumble across a community that shares your passion. I recently "re-discovered" lego with the San Francisco Architecture set which I bought as a gift. Then I remembered back to my defining Lego experience...I was 9 years old and got set #3723 Lego Mini-figure...but I somehow missed a step and messed it all up! I had no idea how to fix it and eventually gave it to my best friend. Well after getting the San Francisco set, I decided to go to the online Lego store to buy #3723 to tackle an old demon. How naive I was. Okay, I'll go find it on Ebay!...$1000 for a sealed new box! Well that piqued my interest and I've since fallen head long back into the lego world!

I have my sights set on creating some MOCs and beginning a fun collection. One day when I'm rich I'll justify spending that much on the Lego Mini-Figure :)

    Hi Justin - welcome!  Not that this is going to help you not spend money, but it looks like you can get a used 3723 for about $250 on Bricklink....but you'll have fun starting a collection for sure!

    Welcome Justin ,I can see the attraction to sets You had when younger but I get over that when I see what their price today is . Architecture line is especially fulfilling if You've been to that place. Build Yourself a pillow to break the fall.
