Hi! My name is Noah, but I go by nace10 or noahnace10 on most websites. I am a KFOL (Kid-Fan-of-LEGO), a Christian, a video-gamer, and a LEGO fan. I am also the first KFOL to become an official contributor at theBrickBlogger, which is pretty cool. Yay!
When I was very little I played with DUPLO, but when I was three or four, my uncle gave me a tub of his LEGO. Either before or after that, I got what I think was my first normal-size LEGO set. (I did get some LEGO-4-Juniors sets before that, but I’m not talking about those.) It was a LEGO Alpha Team set, featuring a machine with crab-like claws and a bad-guy and a good-guy. The main thing that I remember about this set is Ogel’s evil orb that could turn ordinary civilians into mindless drones to serve as his slaves. The orb was really cool, with a white minifig head piece, but instead of a face pattern it had Ogel’s symbol; a crab-like creature with six legs that was blue on one side and red on the other.
I liked to make little LEGO cities with the road-plates from my uncle, but when I was almost eight, I was at Wal-Mart and I saw a LEGO Indiana Jones set with Indy on a motorcycle with his dad. Soon after I got it, I was hooked on Indiana Jones sets. Although I didn’t even know much about Indiana Jones, my friend and I loved to talk about Indiana Jones LEGO sets!
Well, that how I became a LEGO fan. Then about two or three years later I got into LEGO Star Wars sets when I saw the Hoth Echo Base from 2009. I got that, and then lots of other sets since then.
I found theBrickBlogger when I was impatient to see the LEGO Lord of the Rings sets. I went on Google and searched for them, and I found a picture of the Gandalf Arrives set. After clicking on it, it showed behind it, the one, the only, theBrickBlogger! I posted my first comment on the How To Build LEGO Guns That Work! article. Now here I am, hooked on TBB! Oh, yeah, I probably have around 6,000 LEGO bricks!
Questions? Feedback? Type them in the comment section below! I’m on a lot – since this is my favorite website – so I will likely respond to your comment quickly. Thank you for reading my articles!
Noah is my brother! 😀
I will be gone untill Sunday, July 1st, around evening.
(Please delete this comment afterwards please Admin.)
How old are you? 😕
You got your own page! It is really cool how you are the first KFOL contributor here (but you will probably be a TFOL by the time your done reading this comment!). It is also really cool how you have had Lego all of your life , and been into SW and IJ in there “00” years (before 2010). You also were into star wars way before I was. You must have many vintage figures! I got into lego in 2009 and even worse I waited till 2011 to get into star wars 🙁 ! So the only vintages I have are those recently discontinued 2010 sets and some that I bought vintage. But I have learned enough about all of the sets to identify any of them and give you the year (except clone wars sets). I need to post about LSW education one day , but still working on a long video!
Don’t worry, I read it and i’m still a KFOL, but when your done reading this you will be a VOFOL (VERY-OLD-FAN-OF-LEGO(I made that up.)) I don’t know if I have very many vintage minifigs from SW, but i’ll list some cool ones:
2008 or 2009 Tie Fighter Darth Vader
2010 Blueish Twilek from The Clone Turbo Tank (She’s probably kinda vintage, as that is the only set She comes in, and the set is $120 dollars.)
I also have the shirt of Lando’s helper, but I got that from my neibors son, so I don’t know if the box it came in has pieces to the 2006 Slave I. I also have a A-wing (I think) Fighter’s helmet, I don’t know wich set that is from though. Also i’ll post some old minifigs and pieces I have from my uncle on my site in about an hour.
LOL! That’s cute! To call something two years old vintage is a bit of a stretch. You know; something from the 1960s or 70s could be called vintage, but anything newer than that is pretty current, although perhaps a bit dated. Of course, for you it feels old because you weren’t even alive yet. Just shows that you are still a youngling. Anyway, I had a good laugh. Also, you can also call “Very-Old-Fans-of-LEGO” VFOL or “Vintage-Fans-of-LEGO”. Just make sure you don’t call a 30-year-old that, as they would get offended. 😉
LOL! VOFOL stands for somebody that is 100 years or older. Of course, LEGO bricks were not around then.
PS: Admin, can you please change my site to nace10.wordpress.com and
can you please also delete my first and second comment.
PPS: How did thebrickblogger get so popular?
Nace, I updated your website address as requested. I also deleted the first comment, but I can’t delete the second one as Dave has responded to it. There is really no reason to delete it anyway, as it is clear what you meant and when you were out of town.
As far as the history of TBB, getting traffic is about marketing and lots of hard work. My training is in website-development and SEO (Search Engine Optimization), but even with all of that it took me a year to get TBB to where it is now. It is a fun project though. 😉
SEO meant she got a lot of links to her site so google’s algorithm noticed her site and put it near the top of the page (that is how I found this site 🙂 ) !!!
Yeah, that’s part of it. 🙄
I remember my oldest piece. It’s probably the head of Thresh the Aquashark and the torso (No arms) of an aquanaut.
A-wing fighter’s helmet. I have the a-wing wo/figs
youre only 12 nace hm thats how old i am!
Nace…. I see a typo on our blog where it should say “follow the nace10 blog” it says “follow the nace10 BOG” xD
Hey nace10! Congrats on being the first KFOL contributor at theBrickBlogger! I intend to be the 3rd KFOL contributor here (third time’s a charm!), so I think that there should be enough space for me. I just sent Admin my second post. Sorry, no spoilers!
We would love for you to be the third KFOL!
P.S. I’m the second! 😉
Ooh, hope on becoming the 4th soon. Maybe a few more posts…. The only Star Wars set i own that has any value is the AAT (Blue and White) with Yoda, Clone, 2 Battle Droids and # super Battle Droids. I can sell that for a lot on amazon.co.uk (I live in UK), atleast 100 pounds!
Wouldn’t you rather give it to me?
Or Me! 😆
Guys, I claimed it.
Sorry, but it’s mine!
Wow I need to make a new article.
Visit my page at http://mln.lego.com/en-us/publicview/noahnace10.aspx
and don’t forget to click the + under the tree. 😛
u r awesome!!! i want to be the second KFOL contributer for TBB!!! (although i will only be a KFOL for 4 more months)
oh i guess i didn’t read the old posts! i guess i’ll have to be the 5th or 6th kfol contributer ( oh well 🙄 )
So Nace10, you’re a Christian? Cool! Me too. Nice to meet you! Oh yeah, don’t worry. I get overwhelmed sometimes (though I’m usually more inspired than overwhelmed) when I’m reading LOTR by Tolkien as well (and I’m fifteen!). Just keep going. It’s very well-written. I’m almost done with the Return of the King.
Yes, I will finish it no matter what. Also, I end school on Friday, so I’ll lots of time to read LOTR (and finally beat Ocarina of Time)!
Oh yeah! Do you have many LOTR sets?
Um, around June 2nd last year I got the three smallest sets, and for my birthday which was May 10th, I got the Orc Forge. I also have all The Hobbit sets exept the Goblin King Battle.
BTW I just became a TFOL on my birthday, so I’m no longer a KFOL. Luckily I’m still the first KFOL contributer! 😛
Yup! I have all the LOTR sets but only two Hobbit sets. Hmm, I’ll have to get more. I actually like the LOTR sets better though. I put a really LONG comment down on the LOTR new sets a while back. If you check it out tell me what you think! My comment’s on the post across from the Orthanc review.
Oh yeah! Happy B-day even though it’s a little late!
Noah, let’s talk. So what is your favorite Lego theme?
Lord of the Rings. Second is The Hobbit. Before either it was Star Wars. My favorite set I own is Bag End. What’s yours?
Before either came out I mean. SW is my third favorite theme. Or maybe it’s CMF…
You sound like a younger version of me. Personally I like the LOTR sets better than the Hobbit but the Unexpected Gathering set is awesome! It really is so iconic in both the LOTR and Hobbit movies so it’s a must-have for any Middle-earth fan. I gather you have the Unexpected Gathering set?
Yes, I do.
Same thing though Star Wars is amazing. The universe is so huge I think Lego can keep making Star Wars sets for forever.
Yes, I believe the SW sets are getting better and better. The minifigures are getting more and more detailed, and the sets are become more wonderful every year. 😛
Sorry. Something happened and it stuck my reply at the bottom of the page. My favorite theme is LOTR but I love SW as well.
So how big of a collection of Legos do you have?
I said 6,000 bricks in the bio, but I have realized I largely underestamated! I have WAY more than 6,000! I’ll try to get a close count someday.
I read your bio a while ago and forgot. I really should organize my bricks but I just don’t have the time or the patience to do such a huge task. I have around 100, 500 bricks!
100,500 bricks… Wow!
Alejandra301, have you come here yet??
This is sweet!!
Welcome to the greatest site ever!!!
Alejandra how many bricks do u have? Just guess!
Ummm… I have some of the LEGO Friends sets but I share a big tub of LEGOs with my brother.
Ok cool. What’s your favorite set?
I like Andrea’s piano set.
Nace, How many series minifigures do you have???
I’m not sure… I’ll check.
Nace, how many series minifigures do you own???
Sorry about the second question…. my tablet wasn’t working right
I have 25 different Series Minifigures. 28 if you count multipules.
Wow! I think I only have like 8 or 9.
There’s people that have all 160!
My favorite is Bag End. Well, it really called An Unecpected Gathering, but I call it Bag End.
I think I saw in a LEGO magazine that they were creating a life sized LOTR house out of LEGOs! And the characters too!
Yes, I’ve seen that! It’s awesome! That is exactly what the Bag End set is like, but smaller!
The name An Unexpected Gathering sounded familiar but I wasn’t sure if that was it…
Well, An Unecpected Party is the first chapter of The Hobbit.
Hmm, I’d like all 160 minifigs but I only have about twenty to twenty-five at the most. Though Mr. Gold is calling my name! I’d say I have about 500 minifigs altogether in my collection. How many do you have?
I have no idea! I have alot though, but no clue how many! BTW sorry for answering a long time after your comment was made.
Nace, which do you like better: The Hobbit or Lord of The Rings??
LOTR.I LOVE The Hobbit though, so you get how much I like LOTR.
Do you go by Nace or Noah? If you go by Nace, I’ll stop calling you Noah.
My name is Noah. Nace is my middle name.
So I go by Noah.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Is Nace short for something?
Hmm… I don’t believe so.
It’s neat that you are the first KFOL contributor here! 🙂
Yep, I was really excited when I realized that.
Nace, I’ve got a Zelda question for you, since you’re a Zelda fan. Can Legends Of Zelda games be played stand-alone, or do you need the whole series to play out a story? I’m considering getting a Legends Of Zelda game, but I could only find 2.
No, each Zelda game has a different story. Although some are sequels, most of them are very different from each other.
My first game in the Legend of Zelda series was Link to the Past. My second was Skyward Sword. The stories of those two games are very different, and they were also made almost 20 years apart!
If you would like me to recommend a Zelda game, just tell me which gaming consoles you own.
(It’s weird how you asked me about something Zelda related just a few days before I decided to retire my long used Link Gravatar.)
I don’t own any gaming consoles yet, but I’m planning to get a DS lite.
Ahhh… The DS Lite…
I’ve have one of those for over six years, and I’ve played it A LOT up until 2012.
However, there are only two Zelda DS games. These are two of the few zelda games I haven’t played, but I’d say neither of these seem to be as good as other Zelda games.
I recommend getting a Wii instead. They’re only $100 now, and both of the Zelda games on it are amazing.
But the best part about the Wii is you can buy older Zelda games from previous consoles! That means on top of having Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword, you can also get:
The Legend of Zelda-$5
Zelda II: The Adventure of Link-$5
Link to the Past-$8 (one of my all time favorite games)
Ocarina of Time-$10 (not just a favorite of mine, but also considered one of the greatest games of all time)
Majora’s Mask-$10 (probably my favorite Zelda, and my third favorite game)
Plus lots of other awesome games.
I assume you have a computer, right? If you do, please tell me. Although there’s no Zelda games for it (well, there was…Nevermind!), there are some great games I could recommend.
How would I be talking to you without a computer?!!! I also had no idea you could get the old games so cheap for Wii!
Well, I guess I could have used an Apple device, but yes, I have a computer. 🙂
Oh, and there are lots of Zelda mini-games for the computer. And you can play A Link To The Past and all the Game Boy games on the internet.
