Lego Pop Art looks awesome
I was a Lego fiend as a kid and all the way up to middle school. I was lucky enough to have semi wealthy or upper middle class parents and they bought me tons of LEGO’s. I’d first assemble the kit and then take it apart and add it to my collection of parts. I at one point was staying in a kind of double room : two rooms seperated by French doors. The front room was boring devoted to bed and clothes etc. the second room was literally a lego workshop. The whole room was devoted to LEGO’s, I had pieces all over the floor and in bins but totally organized in my mind. I made my own fleet of space ships and rovers. I filled my closet with my creations. I’ll be honest they were damn good. Could have been sold by LEGO. I spent hours and hours making new creations, super focused. While other kids zoned out at TV.
Then I hit puberty and started thinking too much and questioning too much and decided material possessions were bad and I walked into my closet and tore all my creations apart. One of the worst decisions in my life. I’d love to still have them. They were really works of art and artwork isn’t part of the harmful “possessions” category. I still feel a sting thinking about the loss.
Yes! Love the winch.
My wife and I are building this:
It is the Lego haunted house and includes several hidden features.
I am rediscovering my love of Lego now that we have space to build sets. I am really impressed with how far the sets have advanced. I last built kits about 25 years ago.
