    Don't. It's a ridiculously expensive habit and most of it ends up in storage. I'm glad I'm out. Last year I sold my collection for a very decent sum, but even that was much less than I paid for it.

    Pssh. Minas Tirith needs to be a lot bigger than that in order to be to scale.

    So I got bored and dredged up my lego pieces from a box and made something Left 4 Dead-ish.

    [image=http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/298542_2270240645836_1543215553_2438448_6078924_n.jpg]

    The Safe Room. Yeah I know there generally are no turrets near the safe-room, but I couldn't help myself. There are 4 survivors, as usual.

    [image=http://a1.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc7/297044_2270240965844_1543215553_2438450_3586211_n.jpg]

    The Horde. Guys with helmets are the Uncommon Infected (Police/CEDA etc). Also the ninja is the hunter. :p

    The whole thing. It took about 40 mins to make. Most of it was sorting pieces.

    I love lego.
    But now I have to reorganize my Hoth display to include the Rebel Base.

    Sadly, my Ex's kid "crashed" a couple of my sets, and I never go to rebuilding them. Pieces were scattered.
    Oh well.
    I've run short of space and pretty much confined myself to SW lego for the last couple years.

    And I would love another Tt game, so long as it is well done.

    LSW1: good
    LSW2: great
    LSWSage: perfected
    LIJ: OK
    LBM: Excellent bordering on Perfection
    LHP: great--I don't even like Harry Potter that much, and was greatly entertained by the game.
    LPotC: OK
    LSW3: Sucked! Too many games coming out too quickly--one of them was doomed to suffer, and this was it.

    Any ideas what game they might build next? Maybe one with the Dinos, since they're releasing them again?


    LSW sets I'd like to see:
    Bespin. Yeah, I never got a chance to buy the first one. I want an ESB Lando.
    Yavin Base
    Lady Luck
    E-Wing
    T-16 (another one I never managed to get at the time)
    Ghtrok 720 Freighter

    Re-releases:
    that Tie-Fighter 4-pack
    Bounty Hunter Chase
    Ultimate Snow Speeder

    When are they going to put out those Marvel legos? Only ones I remember were the Spider-Man sets from the first movie. The rest have been Mega-Bloks (which are very good, but not quite as good as Lego).

    So, what are the chances we might see these develop into new Lego video games?
    LBM2?
    Lego Justice League?
    Lego Avengers?
    Lego Lord of the Rings?

    I saw this this morning and pretty much screamed with excitement. I'm praying for a Lego LOTR video game SO BAD.
