Yes I Did!

So... I bought myself some toys.  That's right.  Legos.  Lord of the Rings Legos.  How cool is that?
I couldn't help it.  When I saw they were making these a couple months back, I knew I'd snag some as soon as they hit shelves.

I realize that I'm revealing my inner geek and I'm okay with it.  Freak'n Lord of the Rings Legos!

My wife rolled her eyes.  I told her it could have been worse.  There are, after all, several sets that cost $80 or more, and I didn't buy those ones.  Yet.  I certainly will, one of these days.  I can't just have that little wall for my Rohirrim to guard!  I need Helm's Deep!                                                                                          
I'm sure hoping there will be more sets soon.  It wouldn't be right for them to give the world these wonderful creations without giving us Bag End, Minas Tirith, Orthanc, Minas Morgul, or Edoras.

Thank heaven I married a woman who lets me be me.


  1. Those. are. AWESOME!

    I didn't even know they made 'em for LOTR. I have a couple Star Wars Legos, but I understand the joys of having an understanding wife. I told mine I wanted a deluxe Atom action figure (from Real Steel) for Christmas. I got the rolling eyes too, but you know she got one for me.

    And when it comes down to it, its a sure sign you have a whole hell-of-a-lot of wonder elements in you because your inner child is alive and kicking. Congrats!

  2. Nice legos. you should try making a short film with them like dad's he attempted with Hunter's pirate legos
