This is more directed to AFOL's and those of us who have went through a dark age.
When you have some spare time, if you haven't already done it, go to your parent's house and dig through all the boxes in the attic for those spare Lego parts that have been lost for years. I found some time this weekend and found not only a gallon size ziploc bag full of mini-figs and spare parts, but also all the pieces partially assembled for 3053 Emperor's Stronghold. Also all the instruction books for every Lego set I every had.
So take some time when you get the chance and go for a scavenger hunt.
Oh yeah, I'm new to the CC community and I'm working on getting some pictures loaded up to show you guys.
