Thanks guys. I'm kind of a Lego maniac. I've been playing with/collecting them for 20+ years. I'm only missing something like 3 pieces out of the over 15,000 that I have from all the sets I've ever had. They're all cataloged and organized in ziplock bags with their directions and stuff. I was one of those freakishly neat children.

Damn, boy! (Although my Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon is 5195 pieces alone. )

I REALLY want that set. That and the Death Star. I just can't bring myself to spend $400+ on a Lego set. I settled for the smaller scale Millennium Falcon that came out last year.

I have one like you and one ... not so much at home. Tons of LEGO at the house, some even belongs to the kids.

The only Falcon at the house is 7778

My boys got me that one for Christmas a year or two ago so I could play Lego with them. I guess they got tired of me hiding my Galaxy Commander, 6984

What a beauty! Wonder if my mysterious and beloved 6891 could still take off.



Off topic, I have serious problems with my avatar(s) though.

I had a Galaxy Explorer (497) as a kid. Not sure how as it was released a year after I was born!

It shouldn't come as a surprise that I'm a LEGO fan as well. (:

I was a major LEGO kid. I spent hours and days playing with them from the time I can remember until maybe 12-13 years old.

30 years later, I still have all of them in some bins in the attic. I'm hoping that my now-7-month-old will grow to love them as he gets older. Purely so I can play with them again, too.

Mine are all piled into bins, but I hope to have some time to organize them one day.

I buy Lego sets, put them together, take them apart, then give the sets to my nephews. I get the fun of putting them together then they get the fun of having really sweet and expensive sets for free! They got a Lego Death Star out of it and almost all the LOTR ones recently.

I love Legos. I have a great time working with my son, when he gets a set.
