LEGO interests:
I grew up in the eighties and really enjoy many of the 'older' sets and themes. I remember when all we had was Town, Castle, and Space. No one had visors on their helmets, not knights (though they apparently did a few years earlier) or the spacemen.

I'm not a big fan of the semi-metallic looking pieces they are using now for the Vikings and Castle sets as of 2005-present. I think I'm a bit of a retro snob in this respect.

It's so hard to pick a favorite set. I could maybe pick a top ten. Amongst them definitely 6080 King's Castle, 6682 Walking Astro Grappler, 7417 Temple of Mount Everest. The Tripod Invader (7051) is winning my heart that I had to buy two extras to try to make a giant tripod.

I am an AFOL. I suppose what brought me back was going to the planetarium in...2001/2002 and seeing the awesome NASA/Life on Mars set up they had in a showcase. Then I went to ToysRus and KB Toys and bought a bunch and I've mostly been back since.

My activity within Lego communities comes and goes, sadly. Time, time, time is an issue.
