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.

    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.

  • That is insane Guru, and I thought I had a lot of Bionicle. :p

    I only have the white Bionicles (With a few exceptions, presents etc.) as getting them all just seemed a little too crazy for me.
    But I know I am still missing a few for my collection, I just haven't been lucky enough to find a list with pictures of all the Bionicles ever made. So I can cross check with the ones I got.

  • I have most of the Harry Potter Legos, and I did eye up the Pirates of the Caribbean and Toy Story ones. But I have less money then I did when I got the HP ones, so no Lego for me. I do like the Lego board game I saw the other day though...

  • I got rid of all my lego and a year later felt depressed about it, so I ended up getting myself a little Indiana Jones set. Now I have that sitting on my desk just in front of me. It's so cool!

  • I remember they had some kind of Indiana Jones/Mummy rip-off sets, which looked quite cool by the way, before they, apparently, got the Indiana Jones license.

  • Here are some 'purist' custom Indiana Jones minifigs I made long before LEGO got the official licence. (purist meaning no alterations to any LEGO pieces, including removing print).

    There are a lot more in my photobucket account, but they're jumbled up amongst everything else, I'll copy them to a new folder soon and link to that.

    Here's a shot of my home office froam a few years ago - I have many more sets that this now, and a lot of the ones you see have since been broken due to my (and the neighbourhood) kids - need to find time to rebuild them.

    They're great; where did you get hold of the individual pieces? Ebay or something or were they just lying around?

    I'm not sure about the Toy Story Lego sets... they don't look very Lego-ish. Especially the minifig. Especially the Lotso minifig. God damn Lotso.

  • This.

    This guys Escher's made me weep real tears of human lacrimal fluid.

  • @Irishmile said: 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.

    I grew up with all 4. :p

    I didn't have a Eternia playset though.

    Ah, bionicles! I used to have them. Well, the first generation anyway. The red and blue ones were impossible to get in my area. It took me over a year to get it, and we ended up doing so through the Lego website. Oddly enough, a week after getting them, I grew bored of bionicles.
