Earlier this year my long-dormant Lego interest was rekindled by the thoroughly enjoyable Lego Movie. I pulled things out of storage, found long-lost instructions on the internet, and indulged myself in building a few old sets. Ah, the nostalgia!
Today I got my geek on at Newcastle Brickfest. It was packed, and I had to fight off the kiddies to have a good look around.
|Thieves on the bank roof about to get a mech surprise!|
|Can't make it to Blood Bowl tourney today...|
|Star Wars was very popular|
|So many colours compared to when I was young...|
|Lego Simpson and his donkey|
|Not-quite-kosher Lego Anzac|
It gave me true childlike joy to reassemble some of my old sets. They haven't been kept unopened in their original packaging, or built and displayed on a dust-free shelf, but have rather been assembled and played with and reassembled countless times.
