In January I guess I saw enough people using the “I was bored lol” description of their work and made this:
In March I finally got my hands on some series 3 and series 4 minifigures and was moved to do my very first video blogging.
April 23 was the third birthday of my Lego image blog, Lego Diem.
In May I bought the Earth Defense HQ set and reviewed it:
Also in May I did my second foray into EPIC (Existing Pieces, Ignoring Color) building with the EPIC Green Grocer:
Not quite Lego, but in August I took a look at the Doctor Who building block toys.
Work slammed me hard after that, but in October I hit up the Lego store in Framingham. I grabbed some pick-a-brick stuff, minifig stuff, and one of the Heroica game sets (which I bought strictly for parts and can’t say much about the gameplay on.)
At the beginning of December I got excited about some new pieces, as found in a Ninjago set.
Then came my seasonal Star Wars Christmas scene, featuring Santa’s Trench Run.
I then held forth on the new “Lego for Girls” sets. The usual Internet discourse regarding Lego inspired this:
Before the year ended I bought a Creator set and one of those “plain-old-brick-sets” that everyone claims aren’t sold anymore (one for GIRLS, too, because it had some great unusual colors in it.) I also got this set on clearance:
(Dave T. suspects it will go even deeper on clearance and if so, I’ll probably grab another one.)
I’ve since then been doing some sorting — first time I’ve done a major sorting since 2010. It’s been a Herculean task. Will this be the year I finally re-sort by brick type instead of color?
