Go brick yourself… (1.03)

As you may know by now, if you follow my uploads, you’d see that I’ve recently decided to return to the world of film reviews with the Mission Impossible franchise. I loved review the 007 films and reading them back, I’m actually very proud of what I managed to put out.

But if the reviews for films will be starting back up, what does that mean for my LEGO reviews?

Frankly, it’s not good news.

As you know, I pour my blood, sweat and tears into my LEGO reviews and always strive my best to include as much detail and information. Unfortunately, after so many years of buying, reviewing and either displaying and breaking down LEGO, the sets are becoming to expensive and unoriginal.

Don’t get me wrong, spending $150 on LEGO on a few sets and building them is better than a beautiful view and calming music. But lately, and I’m talk in the last two years, originality seems to have gone out the window.

I mostly collect Star Wars and Super Hero sets, however I delve into many others also. Lately though, everything seems to be a remake of a set from years ago. When it comes to superhero sets, they are just boring and dull. I feel no interest in picking one up.

There are some sets I really want, but they mostly comes from the creator expert line, like the Ford Mustang. Again, the price is too much.

LEGO use to be a passion and hobby for me. I was proud of my 60 plus sets on display, now I see them as something to dust down and maintain. Recent sets have tainted my love for past sets and I honestly hate that. I need to find my love for LEGO, but if the designer themselves are putting in next to zero effort, why should I pick up the sets.

This year, I’ll be going through my entire 100 plus collection of LEGO and cleaning, breaking down and selling them off. Of course I will be keeping my personal favourites, and those which mean something to me, but the others will slowly be sold off to better homes.

Anyone else having an out of love experience with LEGO, or is it just me?
