trip to the lego store // photography

   Hey guys! It's me again, and I'm going to share with you one (only one, mind you) of my childhood obsessions.

   Yep, the toys for boys! The bucket of bricks I inherited from my older brother when he moved out drove me into a world of buildable fun.

   My favorite sets were Star Wars, the biggest of my collection. I'll have to show you sometime. I've got a bunch... but, quick tip, don't get the retired Endor Base set. It falls apart and will make the cheese slid off your cracker.

   I also really like the Ninjago sets, as well as their movie and TV show. But no spoilers, I've only gotten as far as the tournament of elements!

   The Lord of the Rings and Hobbit sets are also really great. I love my Hobbit Hole :) Not to  mention my wisdom (oh glory, there goes my ego again) in saving up my VIP points for the big purchase.

   Anyway, while my sister was checking out the American Girl Store (check out her blog with many of the photos taken by myself here), I raced over to the Lego store to get a few pictures.

   But dude, whoever sets up this whole display thing should really rethink their scheme! It was hard to get any good pictures, and even with major editing, most of them didn't turn out at all.

Quick note... these pictures are rather old, so the sets displayed are outdated.

Kai, Master of Fire key-chain

Smaug the Terrible, chiefest and greatest calamity of our age

Fili mini figure with an adorable expression. Yay! Let's go kill a dragon with hugs and flowers!

Terrified Bilbo (as usual)

Kili doing nothing helpful with a dramatic face (as usual)

And the Jurassic World sets! I loved the movie, and am pretty excited about the sets. The only setback is that they're a bit too expensive for my taste, and that Claire's stubby Lego legs aren't high-heeled. Humph.

Adorable Mini Cooper! I wish they had made it red, though.

Aw! I spotted this minifigure proposal. So adorable.

Out for a movie date in one of the displays!

Pick-a-Brick brick holes

I love that they're doing this, it's super fun to just pick the bricks you want.

Thanks for visiting, friend! Come back soon!
