Contributor page: Ernest
Hey, there! I see you made it into my page, so welcome! Here’s some basic info about me. My name is Ernest, and I am a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO). When I was between four and eight years old, I liked playing with LEGO DUPLO bricks and enjoyed the endless possibilities they brought me. I got my first regular LEGO set on my birthday in 2007, which was the #7945 LEGO City Fire Station. Initially I didn’t like this birthday present at all – I never built with small LEGO elements before, and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to assemble the set. Luckily, with little help, I successfully assembled this amazing set and I was hooked on LEGO! Yay! 😛
I kept asking my parents to get me more LEGO City Fire sets for the rest of that year, and I had a lot of fun building them. But after about a year I started to feel bored and didn’t want to build any more fire-related sets. So I moved on the LEGO City Police sets (I wanted to be a policeman at that time!). I also wanted to explore others themes, so in 2009 I tried out LEGO Creator sets and found them to be very awesome. In 2010 I challenged myself to see if I could build the more advanced LEGO Technic sets. I ended up not liking Technic that much, so after four sets I stopped getting them.
In the same year, LEGO introduced a new theme called LEGO Hero Factory and I was instantly hooked! I purchased a lot of the sets in the line because of the tremendous story plot, but I stopped buying them in 2013. My favorite LEGO Hero Factory set is the #6203 LEGO Hero Factory Black Phantom.
Then, in early 2013 I ran across pictures of the #10232 LEGO Modular Palace Cinema on Facebook, and I was very eager to get it. It ended up taking five months because the set was not available in my region. I was really fascinated by the building techniques used in this set, so since then I started collecting the LEGO Modular Houses. I currently own the #10232 LEGO Modular Palace Cinema, the #10218 LEGO Modular Pet Shop, the #10224 LEGO Modular Town Hall and the #10243 LEGO Modular Parisian Restaurant. The Parisian Restaurant is my favorite.
I also started to collect the LEGO Collectible Minifigures. In my region I can buy the entire series for a relatively cheap price and I don’t have to hunt for them individually, so yeah, I’m lucky! 😀
My most recent purchase was this summer when I went to Denmark’s only LEGO store and bought the #10244 LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer and the #21109 LEGO Ideas Exo Suit. I really like the design and play-features of the Fairground Mixer and it instantly became my favorite LEGO set of all time! Here is a picture of my LEGO shelf where most of my LEGO sets are:
Q&A 1: What is your favorite LEGO Set? – As I have mentioned, my favorite set is the #10244 LEGO Creator Fairground Mixer. First of all it is designed my favorite LEGO designer, Jamie Berard, plus it is compatible with LEGO Power Functions (which I luckily have), has lots of play-features, and twelve minifigures! Apart from the main attraction, which is the mixer, there are also some small booths, two trucks, and more – it’s like getting a lot of small sets in a big box!
Q&A 2: Why did you start writing for theBrickBlogger? – Well, this has been my favorite website for a long time, but I always thought that only Thita, the admin of the site was writing articles. One day I accidentally clicked on the CONTRIBUTORS tab on top and discovered that I can also contribute by writing articles! I immediately contacted admin that I wanted to become a contributor and that’s how I started writing. So far it has been a blast and a pleasant experience.
Q&A 3: What is your favorite LEGO book? – My personal favorite got to be the LEGO Minifigure Year by Year: A Visual History, because it contains very interesting information about LEGO’s history and it also includes three minifigures I never had. I have written a review about this book that you can find at the bottom of this page in the articles section.
