I've always had a soft spot for Minifigs, but the fact that you have to buy a whole set if you want the Minifigs has held me back from ever attempting to collect them. A few weeks ago, though, I discovered LEGO's Minifigure collectable series. So far, I've bought 7 figures, totalling at £13.93 (unless my number skills are poor enough for that to be inaccurate, in which case I'm sorry for any offence I've caused with my reckless mental arithmetic).

So far, I have these guys:

The Ringmaster (Series 2)
The Surfer Guy (Series 2)
The Pop Star (Series 2)
The Native American Chief (Series 3)
The Elf Archer (Series 3)
The Sumo Wrestler (Series 3)
The Baseball Player (Series 3)

Concerning the various rumours that I've given them all full names and personalities: THAT'S LIBELLOUS AND I'LL SUE YOU TO THE GROUND.

So, in this thread you can post your LEGO sets, Minifigs, stuff you want, stuff you've made, pictures you've taken, videos you've shot, and just generally discuss LEGO.

  • Well, I don't have any photos (and all my LEGO is disassembled and is stored somewhere), and I didn't buy any thing for a very long, long time, but I have the whole Western set (well, the Town/Rangers/Bandits part, I don't have anything from the Indians), some of the older LEGO castles, a small LEGO pirate fort and a small Treasure Island, several LEGO city sets, a BIG train station/railroad set, some space stuff, underwater stuff... Some other old stuff (some parts of some sets were lost)... But. BUT. I wanted my folks to buy me a Black Seas Barracuda for my 18th birthday (it's a set that I've ALWAYS wanted and still don't have it). They bought a 1TB Hard Drive and a Genious PenSketch instead.... Crap... Oh well :)

    Maybe I will manage to get my hands on it. Or, I know there are PotC LEGO sets on the way, The Black Pearl will also do the trick... though I would still want Barracuda :p

  • My son has gotten a few packs of the mini figures... he loves Legos.

  • he loves Legos.

    Who doesn't? O_o

  • I never got into them as a kid... I can appreciate their appeal though... I certainly do not discourage my kids when they like things that inspire creativity.

    You didn't have legos? :(

  • OMG LEGO IS FREAKING AWESOME. Even though they did cancel the Exo-Force line, which I loved because the robots were pretty compact and I don't have space for the large castles... plus they were giant robots!

    I've also got a couple of the recent Pirate sets, the ship and the island, and since the new Lego game series is going to be Pirates of the Caribbean I'm expecting that there'll be PotC Lego sets as well. (if not, there will be bloodshed!) I was always tempted by the Mega Bloks PotC stuff, but that was Mega Bloks and it just isn't the same.

    ETA: And I've got a couple of the Creator sets too, my favourite is theMonster Dino set because it moves and roars, and it can be made into other beasties as well. Lego Technic is also awesome, one of my friends got me a racing bike kit for Christmas. I FREAKING LOVE LEGO.

  • It's weird to see people talking about "legos"... Here in the UK, the plural of "lego" is still just "lego." Also, we pronounce it "leg-go" rather than "lay-go," which is how I've heard Americans pronounce it.

  • @doodo! said: You didn't have legos? :(

    No not really.. I had gotten one or two of the really little things.. like enough to make a car... but I didn't really want any Legos as a kid.

    It was all Star Wars, He-Man, and GI Joe for me as a kid.

  • @Fealiks said: Also, we pronounce it "leg-go" rather than "lay-go," which is how I've heard Americans pronounce it.

    Where in America, if you know? Here in the Northeast, I've never heard "lay-go". Sounds like it might be a southern or upper midwestern pronunciation.

  • I must be out of my damn mind here.

    Here's a picture of my room I posted on here a few months ago.

    See those boxes next to my dresser? Here's what's in three of them.

    And that's just the Bionicles. I have another box full of Harry Potter, two large tubs of Freestyle Legos, and two large pirate sets (one's a ship, one's a fort, but I can't find part of the ship's mast), as well as a few small pirate sets. Oh, and there's that giant bag of Technic Legos one friend gave me and another box full of regular Legos another friend gave me.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'll be putting all those away.
