I know I'm not the only AFOL on here, so let's make ourselves known. Who else is an adult fan of lego?

I've only got a few things to post, it's been years since I've taken photos of my creations.

I LOVE Lego. My wife has gotten me a few Star Wars sets the last couple of years and I've bought a couple on my own (and LOTR sets). We live in a 1 bedroom apartment at the moment with cats, so I have to keep them in our closet for their own safety. My next two sets will be the Razor Crest and the Final Duel from Return of the Jedi when they're released later in the year. Running out of storage space!

edit* My childhood lego sets are in a storage unit at the moment.

Those are awesome Feyokien.

At some point I'd like to build a new fortress, I always turn 'Castle' into 'Early Modern Gunpowder Era'. :oops:

I'm jealous of your Lego medieval army :P. The LOTR theme came out after my childhood, I would own them all if I could! :mrgreen:.

I had Life on Mars, Adventurers, Knights Kingdom (I & II), Dinosaurs (2001), Star Wars, Harry Potter (1 & 2), Bionicle , Dino Attack(2005) theme sets when I was a kid (along with a few miscellaneous sets).

Not quite Lego, but I also had Mega Bloks Dragon sets, but they were never the same as Lego.

I had a few of the Mega Bloks sets and you're right, they were never the same.

My steppes warriors are actually 'early modern'; some of 'em got guns on their saddles but they still fight with bows when mounted, usually. Thank you though. :mrgreen:

I've also got another army from that period.

I still need to sort out some photo hosting, but I am most definitely an AFOL! Got back into it about 10 years ago to get me through some very bad times. I tend to build miscellaneous truck-type things, suburban houses, and spaceships that are basically Classic Space done with non-Classic Space pieces.

I lied. My next four sets will be the Razor Crest, Bespin Duel, 501st Troopers, and AAT with Ahsoka. I'm so excited that they're releasing the Bespin Duel (so overprice though) set to a wider audience due to COVID, outranked the Final Duel for me. Where am I going to store these things...

After fighting with Imgur for a bit (how can such a popular site be so good at hiding your own actual profile from you?!) I think this is working. A couple of views of one of my spaceships. It's a vaguely Star Wars-ey fighter.

Definitely getting a retro vibe from it, like a mixture of shape of an Arc 170/ Bird of Prey and the simplicity of an Arwing.

I think the last custom star fighter I built may still be in one piece somewhere.

I never knew there was such a thing as lego envy, but I think I'm afflicted after viewing this thread :lol:

The Razor Crest is an absolute beast! Kind of looks like you could rebuild it into Serenity from "Firefly"...

Wish I'd bought some Elves sets now- they use some fantastic colours, and I like the dragon head and wing pieces.

I have the London Skyline set but I find it really hard so I'm doing it slowly. I keep giving up and trying again.

Really admire that you guys managed to stick with it and make your creations!

To be fair, those Architecture sets are really difficult. Lots of extra-tiny pieces, lots of wierd building techniques.
