What got you into Lego?

Post by JackDawson1010 on 10/12/2010, 8:05 pm

For me, it was my grandfather who collected lego and he gave me my first ever set!

Who or what got you into lego?

Surprisingly enough it was the Phantom menace movie(from what I remember) but specifically it was the original Sith Infiltrator set, which my father and my brother allowed me to build alongside them(I was 3, I should have been playing with Duplo bricks)

I have been collecting sets almost for as much time as you've been alive, boy, I started at eleven

As for you, Coop, I bet it was either Anakin's JSF, the darth vader transformation, the droid tri-fighter or the scout walker.

I've been a fan before any of you were born! Grin I simply enjoyed LEGO as a kid and of course the addiction grows out of hand. Shame I don't have my childhood collection any more. There were some true gems. Sad

It really started when I got some DUPLO when I was young, that got me into building, creativity, and....LEGO!!

My mother got me some KKII for Christmas one year, and it kind of started from there. I went into a dark age for a few years to go into Hasbro Star Wars.

2007, when I was a 3rd grader, I saw an ad for Lego Star Wars, and though I'd retry for LEGO. I one a contest for a firefighter animal companion (dragon), and got $50 bucks that burnt in my pocket. So I went to TRU, and got myself the 11 minifigs from the battle packs that grew to about 380 something in three years. After some time getting my new minifigs, I WANTED MORE! So I did, I got more. When I was broke, no money towards a LEGO fund, I was looking for my old KKII minifigs that were in a storage room for years. I later found them all, and any minifig parts I was missing, JCC, my great brother found Bricklink!

Earliest figure-UFO Droid Red (possibly obtained my neighbor)
Newest Minifig-Calvary Col. (Bricktober)

As a kid, I wasn't as big as a fan of Lego and Star Wars as I am now. I remember seeing the movies, and I knew the main characters, but I guess I was an 'average' fan. Thhen TPM and AoTC came out. I saw both, but still, no obsession. Then RoTS came out. I saw it with a group of buddies, and I liked it. But still, no obsession. Then, my cousin wanted a LSW set for his birthday. I rrember him getting the ARC 170 starfighter. Then, he wanted me to build it. I had so much fun building it that I started buying more and more. Now here I am.

If you lived in my country you'd have never gotten into lego, after 2002 lego ads stopped airing...

Actually that's weird, our age gap isn't that big yet you started lego WAY after me.

Mind you I've always had lego as the main toy I collect. I inherited alot as well.

Heck sometimes me and my dad still build together(using our recently acquired power functions) just so he can figure out how some new motors work within certain car designs (being the country's top engineer and whatnot).
