So, this is where I tell you a little bit about myself and this blog.
Now, about this blog, Legos and I.
Actually, when I was a kid, I had a few Lego but I was not a huge fan of them. I liked them, but my main issue was that whatever I built, it would “break” easily. I was not a violent kid, I was even pretty calm, but for some reason, Lego constructions were never resistant enough. That’s one of the reasons. The other one, I don’t know, I guess I just liked Playmobils better.
Fast forward 20 years or so, and one day, in the early 2000’s I stumbled upon a Darth Vader minifigure. I loved the idea, bought it (I guess it’s the very first one, in the box with the Emperor – I think I’ve lost the Emperor since), I may have bought another small set. They quickly started to gather dust somewhere though.
Fast forward another 10 years or so. In 2012, something pretty major happened in my life as I became a dad. Because of that, I started to hang out more in places that I hadn’t really been too all of this time: toy stores. And in december of the same year, I stumbled upon this:
For some reason, I was blown away. I am an even bigger Lord of the Rings fan that I am a Star Wars fan, and the idea of Lord of the Rings Lego, and especially Shelob for some reason was simply amazing to me.
Since that fateful day, I started to look at Legos in a different ways, and I started to buy more ans more. I’ve never been a collector, but those minifigures, how can anyone resist, right?
The more I bought Lego, the more I thought about something. I’ve always wanted to write comic books, but I can’t draw at all. Why not use Lego minifigures instead of drawings then? I know, the idea is not very original, many other people do that online (actually I didn’t know then, but it didn’t surprise me when I found out).
And this is how this blog was born. To post the comic strips I make as well as Lego pictures and other things related to those addictive little things.
I hope you’ll like what you see here. Enjoy!
