Lego Maniac

When I was a kid I would play with Lego all the time. I probably owe a lot of my present creativity to playing with Lego. I had built up a pretty solid collection for myself, mostly from the Space and Pirates range, as well as Knights and City. Unfortunately, there were no Ninja Lego sets at the time when my interest in Lego was at its peek. And now they’d got some really cool stuff like Star Wars, Batman, and Indiana Jones. I enjoyed what I had though, and I’d have to say that it was a defining part of my upbringing. It was a lot of fun, but most of my Lego stuff was passed on to some of my cousins years ago.

However, I did have a few things stashed away, and since I’m in need of money I figured it was good eBay fodder, so I dug out a container full of Lego figures. I had to take some pictures for the auction, and as I was setting the figures up to be photographed, that old sense of fun came back. Everything was still in great condition and I wanted to play! Kinda made me wish I was a kid again.

Here’s the Space guys.

And the Soldiers.

There were some Lego sharks and a monkey in the set, so I set up an amusing shot.

I’m going to miss these guys, but I hope they go to a good home. You can see the Lego Figure auction right here and another Lego auction comprised of specialty pieces right here. They end in a few hours.
