Lego's are awesome, especially when I get down on the floor and build stuff with my kids

I love Lego, but I don't play with them anymore. I made a that shoots 1x8 flat top bricks a few years ago, but that was the last time I built anything.

I got em. Yes I'm 29, have no kids and play with legos. I also have K'nex, and at one time had a K'nex roller coaster that covered half of my bedroom, and you had to walk thru it! (Had 4 sets of the big coaster linked, and numerous others) I figure that when I have kids I'll be set, but until then I'll have FUN!

To be honest, I have assembled a set in years. I just bought the Lego 8110 - Mercedes Benz Unimog kit, to get back into the swing of it. I won't 'play' with it per-se, but I will definitely be assembling it and keeping it on my computer desk for display =)

My name is 90mcg112 and I am a Lego-holic. It has been 20 years, 5 months, and 6 days since I last put together a Lego structure. I started early as a kid with Legos, and my family only fed my addiction by buying me more and more Lego sets for my birthday and holidays. By age 9, I had an entire Lego city in my room and scabs on the bottom of my feet from stepping on random Lego pieces scattered around the floor. A few years later, I was Lego-ing all the time, hours on end. I didn't come out of my room and would often fall asleep on top of my latest creation, waking up with tiny Lego pieces stuck on my face. Finally, my family intervened - a cousin destroyed my Lego city by launching a basketball into my bedroom. The devastation was colossal, with minifigs everywhere and buildings in pieces. That day, I boxed up my Legos rather than face rebuilding the once great Lego city. My Legos have remained boxed up, tucked away in a garage like the Arc of the Covenant, waiting to be rediscovered.

Yep, I'm a fan. I buy them, build the sets, rebuild the sets sometimes, build other things (although not as much as I would like...darn job getting in the way of playtime). It all started Christmas the year I was, I think, six. My parents got my sister and I a big generic set and one space set each (this was back when Space was the only theme and they only had white and red astronauts). I LOVED my set and it's still amongst my favorite Lego sets ever. I was hooked after that. I didn't buy a lot of sets in college (no money, no space, not a lot of time) but got back into them once I got out of school, especially once the Star Wars and Harry Potter sets came out.
And, for my birthday last year I bought myself the biggest sailing ship Lego currently makes. I always wanted one of the big boats, ever since Lego started the first pirate theme. That ship now sits on my entertainment center next to the Durmstrang ship from the Harry Potter line.

@unoriginal26: you gotta actually have intercourse with a woman before you have kids. FYI

@pinchecat: thank you! Now I don't have to ask about the birds and the bees to get rep points!

I like building with my son or - when I'm at a store - to check out the pick a brick section in the back and see if I can design something using that limited selection. Last one I did was a very cool 2+ foot tall skyscraper that fit into 2 of the large cups when I was done. Had all the store employees coming by to check it out.
