Well Met - All About Ben

Hail and well met, Castle fans!

My name is Ben, and I am a professional 'Toy Tech.'

About me: I am a lifetime fan of LEGO (of all themes), with a special place in my heart for Castle sets. Castle was always my favorite growing up in the late 70s/80s. I would spend endless hours building and combining pieces from 6080 and others into ever-larger fortifications and enjoying silent role-play with my knights.

Growing up, LEGO was always a topic of conversation with anyone I would meet, and on my first job, I mentioned to a co-worker that I sure did admire a spiffy new set that had just come out, but it was too pricey for me ($50 was a lot then). Well, he and everyone else that worked there chipped in and bought it for me. Just one of those great LEGO moments, I thought I would share.

Fast forward about ten years and I was starting up a new retail store catering to model railroaders (my other passion) and LEGO buffs on the side with a six figure budget.

About 15 years after that, I founded yet another LEGO business which I am still involved with.

So, LEGO is in my blood for sure, I live and breathe bricks.

That's me in a nutshell, and I look forward to participating here often.

-Ben, Toy Tech
