We’re huge LEGO fans in our house. Our basement, which is mostly all my husband’s domain, is filled with Lego sets. Some are quite small, but many are huge and intricate. If an item looks like a weapon, a transport of some kind, or a wheel, it works. The drawbridges work, the prisons work, it is all very intricate and a lot of fun to play with. What, play with? I don’t, you know, play with them. I’m an adult and I resent any notion that I might do any thing of the sort. (Yes I do.) My husband is the Lego Master in our house as he puts most of them together. There are a lot of pictures here and they aren’t even half of what we have and they don’t include the ones I have on my desk at work. We love our little fantasy lives in miniature. Do you collect things like we do?
The Market Village (My favorite set!)
A rogue, a wizard, and an elf ranger walk into an inn to fulfill their character trope...
Starting at the far left: a hermit, a blacksmith, a horse and a flag bearer. Fun fact! The horse's stable has Lego horse poop inside!
Yes, this is a black skelton riding a skeleton horse. All the other lego men tremble in fear!!
Our very first set, the castle. The dragon is very dusty. Keeping these sets dust free is a chore of Sisyphus proportions. I love the little jester holding his goblet and running away from the dragon as if to say, "F this nonsense!"
I like the faces on the knights. One is clearly the stalwart hero, the other one just messed his pants.
This set is a custom design, designed by my husband. Because a wizard must have a wizard tower!
This set is a pirate set with the soldiers coming up on to do battle. Not pictured well is the skeletal remains of a pirate ship. The little room inside the hideout is furnished.
Pirate hideout, complete with fish cooking over an open fire! Lego thinks of everything!
This is a neat set. Aside from the snake pit (left) and scorpion pit (right), the doors open to reveal a crazy tomb with Indiana Jonesesque traps and pitfalls. There is even a lever that will shoot a sarcophagus out the side of the tomb. Not pictured: A giant scorpion who sits on the back of the pyramid.
Minifigures! Dracula, the witch, and the Trojan (seen here) also live on my desk at work.
More minifigs! I like the zombie (of course) and in the second row next to the mime is a little safari guy. He also lives in my succulant plant on my desk at work.
