when coming out of the dark age ...
all those sets you aquired when coming out of your dark age! when you bought them, did you buy them to build them?
did you unbox a lot of sets. what kind of themes did reignite your interest in lego. did your favorite themes ever change in all of your "afol life" ? have you been more into figs, building or whatever ?
i have a confession to make:
the only things i might ever unbox are modulars or sets i get 50% off. its not that i dont want to unbox them. but everytime i go ahead having a look at my fabulous misb collection for choosing something to build, i have a really hard time. somehow all of a sudden things pop up in my mind, like finishing my childhood sets, put something new on bricklink, continue with my temple-grounds-modular-city-moc, admire my monster minifig collection, dismantle a set i put on display (wether for fast shipping if sold or for making new display room or just not digging said set anymore), re-organising display space, bricklinking, browsing mocs on various websites (read hispabrick magazine tutorials, classic-castle.com) .... oh. and SORTING! its a never ending story! but i like it. the state of mind when sorting is soothing and relaxing to me.
with modulars i cant resist unboxing them, you get the right experience for that money! plus a whole lot a useful parts.
they hit the nail on the head with the modular line!
