Hello, and welcome to my page! My name is Jeremiah, but I go by Tobymacboy on most websites. I am a drummer and a Christian, and a TFOL (Teen-Fan-of-LEGO).  🙂

As a little kid I had boxes of random LEGO bricks I played with on and off. In 2009  I got the #6209 LEGO Star Wars Slave I at a yard-sale for $2, but I didn’t have the instructions, so just used it for parts. Then a friend of mine gave me a small collection of rare minifigures – some from the 1980’s! That same year, I got the #8047 LEGO Technic Compact Excavator for Christmas and I was hooked. 😀

It wasn’t until 2011 that I downloaded the instructions and finally built the s Slave I, which got me into LEGO Star Wars. I love making Star Wars MOC’s, especially building my own version of the LEGO sets that I want to buy but don’t have the money for.

My desk with the LEGO Star Wars Slave I

I love all the Star Wars movies with Episodes 3, 5, and 6 being my favorites. I really dislike the “Clone Wars” cartoon and I think that the Clone Wars minifigures are very ugly. My favorite LEGO Star Wars character is the Emperor. I would say about 80% of my minifigures are from Star Wars sets.

Some of my LEGO collection…

My oldest LEGO set is a 2003 NBA kit that had 3 NBA players standing on display-stands with cards behind them. I got it for 50 cents, unopened, and was told by a toy-appraiser that it is worth $50. 8)

My oldest LEGO set is this LEGO MBA kit…

My first article on theBrickBlogger was about making LEGO chocolate, then later I posted about LEGO misprints, and was made a contributor when I wrote about variants and versions of the LEGO Star Wars minifigures. If you like, you can read my posts below, and if you have any questions or comments please don’t hesitate to write me! 😉

Nice to see you! I actually had an old basketball set too – not the same one and I’m not sure I have all the pieces 🙁 ! I’m a christian too (although I didn’t metion it on my contributors page I did say I had read the Bible 7 times so that should be good enough) 😉 !

Tobymacboy May 25, 2012 at 12:22 PM

Nice to see u also! It’s great to find a fellow Christian AND lego fan. Usually I only find one or the other. Hard to find someone like you. I’m not realy in to basketball , but I found it for 50c AND it is from 2003 AND its Lego so why not buy it?

Reply

gid617 May 25, 2012 at 6:50 PM

Yeah, I’m not too much of a Basketball fan either, but I was just given the set. And if I could find anything like that for fifty cents I sure would buy it! 😉

Yes I did some years ago. Its on Godtube. http://www.Godtube.com/tobymacboy/ is my place. How did you find out just from my Lego review on the Boba Fett keychain. (p.s. sorry if duplicate comment my browser says there is not one if there is admin plz delete the first)

nace10 May 29, 2012 at 8:49 PM

Here’s how I figured out. You said you got a Slave I from a yard sale on this post and in the Boba Fett Keychain review. In the keychain review and the Police Minifig Collection review your username had JESUSFREAK in it. 😎
(Your Brickflim is AWSOME!!!!!!!!!)
(Nice music in it too, I think when I showed mom your brickfilm she said she had heard it before.) :mrgreen:

Cool! Thank you . that was when I first got into stopmotion. Some of my newer videos have a better picture speed. The band TobyMac is where I get my username. TobyMac used to be in the band DCTalk that wrote the song “JESUS FREAK”. I am mostly into Star Wars brand Lego since I got into it. I rarely buy other sets , except buying all the Lego nerds from the Minifigures theme!

Tobymacboy May 27, 2013 at 4:34 PM

Yeah that spread pretty well! My friend put it on his website too! And thanks , I love SW. But as of now , I am accumulating stuff for my other interests since I have so much LEGO built up already.

Reply

Meneldur son of Garamar May 28, 2013 at 4:22 PM

Yeah me too. I’m into airsoft and am saving up for an m4. Though the Orthanc set got me wondering what I should spend my money on: airsoft supplies or one of the coolest LOTR sets out there. I think I’ll choose the airsoft. So what are your other interests and how many bricks do you have?

Reply

Tobymacboy May 30, 2013 at 8:32 PM

I used airsoft once. My friend put the gun to my arm and shot me. FUN!
My other interests are definitely Sonic the Hedgehog and PAC-MAN as well as BrickFilming and blogging. I own and love 4 Classic Video Game Systems (SEGA Genesis , SEGA Saturn , SEGA Game Gear , and GameBoy Advance SP) so yeah I’m really into those too!
Bricks? Wow , somewhere around oh I’d say the 80,000 mark counting Minifig parts.

Reply

Meneldur son of Garamar June 2, 2013 at 1:29 PM

Wow! 80,000! Nice! I’ve estimated around 100,500 bricks in my collection and I’m pretty pleased. But as for airsoft, that’s probably my favorite thing next to Legos. I hope your friend’s airsoft gun had a low fps because it’s not smart to shoot someone that close!

Tobymacboy June 3, 2013 at 9:33 AM

Yeah it left a scar for a while….. BTW I just got a LEGO Mindstorm (only missing one green ball) at a flea market for ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… $10!!!!

Meneldur son of Garamar June 3, 2013 at 3:02 PM

AWESOME! Man! Your collection is now: 80,250 I’m guessing! Have lots of fun!
