from deep storage
February 29, 2016
Guess which character from The Lego Movie was my favorite. Go on, guess. I’ll give you a hint:
Space Corps personnel assembled for duty!
So yeah, with three generations of family all doing the purging and decluttering All the Things thing, a whole lot is coming out of storage. My brother Rob and I loved space Lego. Loved them. I went with Rob when he sold the entire batch of Star Wars toys to a dealer. That was a little traumatic, but he got decent money for them, and we immediately went to see The Force Awakens together which was a good reminder that it’s about the movies and the stories, not the Stuff.
When I mentioned that I’d gotten custody of the space Lego, the dealer made noises that he might be interested. NO, I said. Just no. I love these guys.
And I’ve discovered that re-acquiring all the old Lego sets is keeping me from wanting to buy any of the new ones. This is an extremely important function.
So, for now at least, I am 80’s Lego Space Guy’s biggest fan. LOVE YOU!
