Hello, I am an AFOL back into LEGOs in part because my son is old enough to appreciate them, and also due to the genius of LEGO's marketing strategy to display their products through fun video games. It was Lego Star Wars III that did it. I grew up on LEGOs. They were "my thing" through most of the '80s, receiving them for Christmas and birthdays mostly. Now, I've caught the fever once again in my 30s, reliving pieces of my childhood, and eagerly anticipating the next release date for the newest Star Wars stuff. The new Republic Gunship will be a welcome set. I love seeing how different combinations of shapes and colors can be put in a configuration to get as close a representation to the real thing as possible, and the builds get better and better as the years pass, don't you think? Anyway, it's pretty cool to be part of a community of persons with common interests. Please enjoy my creations, as I've been enjoying seeing everyone elses on MOCpages. Thanks!
