Well, we’re back – with Episode 2 of our collectibles themed podcast. (If you missed it, you can find Episode 1 here.) In this episode, we talk about the importance of having a clear concept of what you want your collection to be, what you want in that collection, and being open to when a special piece crosses your path. We think this topic is important when collecting, because it’s very easy to feel the need to have everything, and thus get overwhelmed and burned out. We hope you enjoy the podcast – and we’re already working on episode 3!

I for sure would love to own it.

It’s the work of Pate-keetongu, a Finnish LEGO enthusiast who builds mostly Bionicle, castle and steampunks MOCs. Continue reading “The Company of Thorin Oakenshield… built in Lego”
