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.

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.

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.

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, 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?

  • gid617 May 25, 2012, 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! 😉

  • nace10 May 29, 2012, 5:16 PM

    Wow! Tobymacboy, Didn’t you write a review on LEGO.com about the bob fett keychain?

  • Tobymacboy May 29, 2012, 7:46 PM

    Yes i did! My username is “JESUSFREAK1757Godrocks” How did you know?

  • nace10 May 29, 2012, 7:53 PM

    WOW!!! 😯 Did you make a brick film about the police minifig collection???
    (PS: I’m a Christian too!) 😀

  • Tobymacboy May 29, 2012, 8:29 PM

    Yes I did some years ago. Its on Godtube. https://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, 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:
    Like your posts!!! 😆

  • nace10 May 29, 2012, 8:51 PM

    SORRY!!!

  • Tobymacboy May 30, 2012, 8:22 AM

    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!

  • nace10 May 30, 2012, 9:04 AM

    It’s one of your first? It’s pretty good for that!

  • Steph May 31, 2012, 11:24 AM

    Toby Mac is my favorite Christian artist… I buy all his albums, and he’s the only artist with which I’ll do that!

  • Tobymacboy May 31, 2012, 5:18 PM

    I also have EVERY SINGLE ONE of his albums except DCTalk

  • nace10 May 31, 2012, 9:22 PM

  • Tobymacboy June 1, 2012, 7:46 AM

  • Tobymacboy August 19, 2012, 5:10 PM

    Hey admin how come on the link for my personal page “5000 Bricks” has a line through it and you cant click it?

  • admin August 19, 2012, 7:59 PM

    Hm… that means that the link is broken. Did you change your website’s address? 😕

  • Tobymacboy August 25, 2012, 3:33 PM

    Nope. Still the same https://5000bricks.shutterfly.com/

  • admin August 25, 2012, 4:07 PM

    How about now? I think it should be working fine. It appeared to be just some coding issue.

  • Tobymacboy August 26, 2012, 7:51 AM

    Yay thank you!

  • Tobymacboy November 13, 2012, 6:43 PM

    I want , no , NEED to send some posts in but I have been busy and my computer failed. Sorry Admin , I will send something soon!

  • admin November 14, 2012, 9:19 AM

    So sorry to hear about your computer troubles. That’s never fun. You just contribute when you feel inspired. There is never any pressure. I prefer people to write when they are fired up. Not because they have to. 😉

  • Tobymacboy December 28, 2012, 5:54 PM

    Well I got a new Toshiba laptop for CHRISTmas so new posts may come in. How would LEGO Sonic the Hedgehog do?

  • Tobymacboy March 29, 2013, 11:38 AM

    Yeah , I got a 2001 Bionicle Gali complete at Goodwill for $1.50 (my mom paid for it so YAY)

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 2, 2013, 8:15 PM

    Hi Tobymacboy! I just clicked on your name up on Contributors! I’m a Christian too and am a TFOL like you. Also I love Toby Mac.

  • Tobymacboy May 3, 2013, 8:39 AM

    Hello! Glad you found me! This profile is sorta outdated so click my name to see my new blog. TobyMac rocks!

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 5, 2013, 6:01 PM

    Tobymacboy, I am wondering how I can become a contributor and how I write articles and stiff like that.

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 5, 2013, 6:02 PM

    Sorry, typo there! It should be stuff not stiff!

  • Tobymacboy May 25, 2013, 5:20 PM

    Sorry for the long reply , write up a post in document form and email it and whatever pictures to admin.

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 27, 2013, 2:59 PM

    That’s okay. I did check out your blog. Cool! and I love how you tell others about Jesus as well. You have some neat SW stuff.

  • Tobymacboy May 27, 2013, 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.

  • Meneldur son of Garamar May 28, 2013, 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?

  • Tobymacboy May 30, 2013, 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.

  • Meneldur son of Garamar June 2, 2013, 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, 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, 3:02 PM

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

  • Tobymacboy June 3, 2013, 3:31 PM

    Actually it has around 600+ pieces. I made a post and video about what I built with it. Click my name to see!
