For the love of Lego

So, I am a super giant fan of lego. Love the stuff. I had a little bit of it as a kid, but not much. Mostly probably because it was and is still so expensive. But in the last few years I have fallen back in love with it. The cute charm of the recent Harry Potter and superhero sets a few years ago started the collecting all over again.
Then came the mini figure packets. Mini figures are always the greatest part of the Lego sets. I mean, I had to buy certain Harry Potter sets to get certain characters, like Luna for example. So when Lego brought out their first series of mini figures it was so fun. Cute/random/crazy little characters to collect. Plus, I have always been a sucker for blind boxed or packets filled with the unknown. It's just so exciting. 
So jump forward a few years and many different series and you get to The Lego Movie series. When I first got told about a Lego movie, I actually thought it was a joke. Then watched the trailer and you have Will Arnett as Batman, and Chris Pratt as the lead Lego dude..and I was sold. The movie comes out in February in the UK, and I have been trying to find the new figures. Every toy shop I go in, always on the look out. I met David for lunch today, and we went in a toy shop, and he said, 'Hey, look, the Lego Movie figures!'.....I just laughed and said, 'Yeahhh, ok.' But they were there, right in front of us. I know it sounds stupid, but seeing so many people get ahold of them on Instagram and people selling them for crazy amounts of money on eBay, it's just nice to be able to get some! So that's what we did. Chatting to the shop assistants while feeling the packets, I nearly found all the ones we wanted. I am very happy. This Lego collector is super happy.
And also, I found a Lego character that looks just like David. This is just so funny.

I definitely remember playing with legos as a kid. I still have a frog one I put together on my shelf.

That's really neat that you find the right sets and can keep adding to your collection! Including the one that does have a striking resemblance to David.

Hope you're well.
