Unfortunately my friends, the time has come for me to leave this hobby and seek some other creative endeavor that will bring me joy and inspiration.
To be succinct, I have been very disappointed with pretty much every decision that has changed the Lego brand and product for the last decade. These decisions have created a transformation of the product into something that is no longer the Lego that I fell in love with.
I’m not going to go into details because you’ve heard all those complaints/criticisms ad nauseum, and I have no intention of leaving this wonderful community behind with a last, acrid spit of bitterness.
Lego as a hobby and a passion has been an integral part of my life for many fantastic years, and I have been fortunate to meet so many wonderful and creative people all over the world as a result. I’m so grateful that I’ve had the experience of getting to know the community and participate in so many exciting and inspiring fan club meetings and conventions.
It has been a fantastic experience for me participating in Classic-Space. I grew as a builder and as a person, and to everyone responsible for tolerating my prickly debut and encouraging me, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope the new year brings you joy, serenity, and lots pewpewpew!
