I began collecting LEGO in 1987. I’ve never really stopped, though the collecting did dramatically slow down in high school and college, a period that many LEGO fans refer to as their “Dark Ages”. With the emergence a few years ago of the Modular/Creator lines targeting adults, the LEGO company successfully sank it’s acrylonitrile butadiene styrene talons back into me.
In addition to collecting current sets, especially the modular lines, I re-claimed the large tub of bricks that long sat neglected at my parents’ house, and began working on a long-held dream – the LEGO singularity – combining all the pieces from my various and disparate sets into a single, cohesive display.
I’ve cobbled together some tables in a corner of my unfinished basement and started the long (never-ending?) process of sorting pieces and building. On these pages, I’ll document that process with pictures and stories. I hope you enjoy!
For my sigfig, I chose the Black Falcon torso. The classic Castle sets were among my favorites growing up, and I especially liked the Black Falcons, who struck me as the underdogs of the various Castle factions, and their blue, black, and white livery.
