Wow, I just wanna start off by saying I think it's epic that there are LEGO-fans here as well =)

I have collected LEGO since I was... I dunno, 4, maybe 5. I bought and received so many sets when I was young that, at the moment, I literally have no idea where to put it all.
I do still collect, however. Though I limit myself to Star Wars.
Except in April/May the new Super Heroes theme will arrive, which includes Superman (my all time favorite superhero :love: ) and LEGO from the upcoming movie The Avengers 8)

Will be then a death confrontation with the Marvel minifigs by MegaBloks? :D

By the way... the Hulk looks... great!

Yep, shouldn't be long now. =)
Can you buy them in Spain, yet? :P

The Hulk looks great indeed, they all do. But my favorite is Iron Man 8)

Hm, yeah.
I expected as much. From what I know, there are some stores in the U.S. that have them, but that's about it.
The Batman and Superman LEGO is on sale since January, though, in the U.S. and U.K.
I really don't think that's fair :(

Yesterday I saw the first boxes in a shop. They had both 'Marvels' and 'DC Comics'. There were minifigures sets and a bigger version like the bionicles of Batman, The Joker and Cpt. America.
The minifigs of Captain America and Batman... weren't really nice... :nono:
Catwoman... :puke:
Wolverine was fine :thumbup: but hadn't the hood. The face and hair were really good.

The prices... nothing for less than 15€. :thumbdown:

Yeah, the prices suck </
It makes sense, though, considering it's a license and everything ;)

Cool that you have them there. We got them here too now =)
Though not the Captain America-set yet, or the Bionicle- versions.
We do have the large Helicarrier set (with the Hulk) and the Quinjet :]

New minifigs at home. :joy:
Last Saturday I saw an offer of the series 7 for 1,90€ (I've seen the series 6 for 2,40€ each >( )... and Tarzán (jungle boy), the Piper and the Black Knight came to home.
They join the Highlander and the Roman Legionary from series 6.

Total account: 23 minifigs from bags. 11 Star Wars characters. 5 from legoland and old sets, plus 3 'primitives'.

From the future series 8 I'd like to get the diver and the 'conquistador'. The Lederhosen guy is funny but I'd prefer it with a jar of beer instead of a pretzel... ;)

And behold, the attitude that got us all shelling out through the nose for licenses of any kind. ;)

Now I'm in our summer house in countryside, which is my Lego Paradise (almost all of my Legos are stored here), and Recently I have wiped out a swashbucklin' Pirate hideout, complete with lookout tower, pier (and sailboat), cannon, campfire and treasure chest. It has 6 pirate minifigs, plus one imperial officer, fighting with 1rst mate on the pier....

Wir betreten feuertrunken,
Himmlische dein Heiligtum!
Deine zauber binden wieder
Was die Mode streng geteilt;
Alle Menschen werden Brüder,
Wo dein saftner Flügel weilt!

Turns out the users here are much more into Lego than I realised...

I am more into collecting than when I was last here, with me having my eye on the Civil War sets,
http://brickset.com/sets/theme-Marvel-Super-Heroes/subtheme-Captain-America-Civil-War

I have the cheap one and the big one is on his way, (Giant-Man looks awesome!) and I hopefully will get Black Panther in the next few months! :)

Unfortunately, Lego's prices have arise so much. </
Even the minifigures' blind bags (over 3€ :stupid: ).

Yeah, that's a bummer, I paid almost 500 PLN (circa 100 $) for my Pirate ship, but I don't regret it:

And then I went on Lego Exhibition at Warsaw's National Stadium and bought myself a souvenir:

I never was into Ninjago theme, but these sets have some cool parts, and I like their Steampunkish "Sky Pirates" theme...

The most I spent on one set was the Kwik-E-Mart:

A cool $200 when I was in Florida, it's the only 100+ set I've got so far but as I now have a job (and a student loan...) maybe that will increase in the near future.

Jealous. I want both the main Simpsons sets so badly; I've got all 32 of the separate figures but those main sets cost a freaking fortune over here.
