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!

LEGO Shopping by Ernest

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 TBB?  – 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.

    Very interesting page, Ernest! 🙂 Ah, you have too many of the sets that I want. Do you get most of them as gifts, or something? Oh, and since you don’t like Technic, can I have that 8068 Rescue Helicopter? I really wanted to get that one, but my mom got me 8046 instead. 🙁

    • Ernest September 19, 2014, 10:31 AM

      Btw, how old are you? I see you hang around here at theBrickBlogger quite often.

      • BLProductions September 19, 2014, 11:37 AM

        I happen to be fifteen. Or, at least, that’s how long I’ve been on earth. I’d rather still be thirteen or fourteen, or four. 😀 I don’t know why I always check this site every day; in fact, I shouldn’t be here right now, as I’m in the middle of taking a Calculus test. 😕

        • admin September 19, 2014, 12:23 PM

          Very-very bad… 😈

        • Ernest December 23, 2014, 10:07 AM

          Oh, and BLProductions, I think that you have written at least 3 articles for theBrickBlogger, am I correct? So that means you can get your own contributior page, right? I’m so looking forward to it!

          • BLProductions January 10, 2015, 4:55 PM

            Yes, indeed, in fact, I’ve written four articles so far, and am currently working on a fifth. As for the contributor page, I’ve been thinking about that for a while, but I don’t think I’m going to make one…yet. I may have to ask my parents’ permission (70% chance of “no” there), but if I write more articles after the 2015 New Parts series, I’ll be making one. 😉

            • Ernest August 8, 2015, 12:06 PM

              Hey BLProductions! If you’re reading this, can you please tell me which country are you currently living? Thanks~

              • BLProductions August 8, 2015, 9:46 PM

                You’re lucky I checked this page just now, otherwise I wouldn’t have seen your question. The answer is the US, and it’s the only country I’ve ever lived in. 🙂

                • admin August 9, 2015, 10:14 AM

                  Ernest just wrote me yesterday that he is planning to work on a new article. 🙂

                  • BLProductions August 9, 2015, 7:37 PM

                    I may plan to as well… 2016 is getting closer… when I see pictures, I see new parts! 😉
                    Though hopefully I won’t see as many as I saw end of last year…. 😐

                    • Ernest August 9, 2015, 11:07 PM

                      I look forward to your upcoming article, BLProductions! The articles you wrote are always so interesting!

  • Ernest September 19, 2014, 7:37 AM

    I got almost all LEGO sets as gifts. 😆

  • jabber-baby-wocky September 19, 2014, 10:25 AM

    Would you mind sharing where do you live? Like in what country? The other contributors do. It is nice to see the international crew here!

    • Ernest August 23, 2017, 5:11 AM

      Sure! I live in Hong Kong, a small city in China. Nice to meet you!
