My name is Jarod, although you can call me MCAdventureCity or MCA. I just turned 16 last week, so I thought, why not join the Brickset forum? After all, I've been waiting to be old enough for years now. But anyways, let me tell you a bit about myself and my LEGO history.
I have been a LEGO fan for almost my whole life, ever since I received a bucket of Duplo pieces on my first birthday. I received my first non-Duplo set, #4904
, as a promotion with Life Cereal in 2005. However, it wasn't until 2007 that my collection really started growing, when I got #7994
City Harbor for Christmas, as well as two of the 2007 Aqua Raiders Sets. I discovered the main Brickset site in Fall 2010. Over the past ten years, my collection has grown to a whopping 360 sets. However, recently, the rate I have been buying new sets has slowed down, for multiple reasons. In 2014, I bought Minecraft, and was immediately hooked, to the point where I kind of entered a mini dark age for my collection. In 2015, I briefly returned to collecting, but was stopped again in early 2016 by the fact that I had run out of room in my family's house for more sets. Since then, I have only bought two more sets due to the lack of space. However, I don't consider myself in my dark ages since I still keep up to date on LEGO news, and haven't completely forgotten about my collection.
I look forward to getting to know all of you here at the Brickset forums, and hopefully I can make more space at home so my collecting can resume soon.
See you soon,
