Hi Fellow Lego enthusiast!

I'm new to the forum and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Michael and I'm from Vancouver (South Granville). I beaome a serious Lego collector about 11 years ago. All though I do love all Lego's, I only collected Lego Star Wars! Some of my proudest achievements in the collection are both versions of the CE Millenium Falcons BNIB Never been opened.

Thanks for reading! I look forward to the forum discussions.

Around here, we would consider that a tragedy that you have them BNIB and not built. :) You just have a pretty box. But from a collector's or investor's standpoint, that's great!

Don't worry, I too, have BNIB LEGO waiting to be built.

Welcome Michael.

Our members usually meet (in person) once a month to socialize, show off things we've built, conduct business, and have fun.

Our next meeting is this Friday evening. If you'd like to meet a bunch of us, let me know and I'll send you details on where this month's meeting is.

Ah... where are my manners, my apologies... welcome Michael!

It's certainly a good time for LEGO Star Wars being the 20th year and the 1000th LEGO Star Wars mini figure being announced/produced.

Hi Michael, welcome to the forums! I also enjoy star wars Lego, but I never wanted to collect it (way too many sets!) Do you build any custom stuff?

Hi All - My name is Alexei. New to the forum, the group, etc.
I'm originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I moved to Beijing China about 15 years ago, started a family there. Lego was a way of doing something with my kids that I could recognize from my own childhood since literally _everything_ else was so vastly different. It rekindled for me the love of the brick. I started a small collection of lego bought in China, where it's much more expensive. Then we started inheriting lego piles from other people whose kids grew up. Then I retreived my own old lego pile from my half-siblings who grew up. Then I started buying more stuff...and moved back to Canada. We're now settled in Vancouver and things have gotten a little out of control with the amount of Lego I've accumulated...
I've made a couple of submissions to Lego Ideas and I'm up to 800 votes in two weeks on my latest project, a Neo Classic Space creation.
I'd love to meet you all - it looks like a really impressive group of talented builders and designers. Perhaps you can let me know when your next meeting is.

Hello Alexei,

Welcome to the VLC forum. I am glad you found our site. You should post a link to your Lego ideas so that we can check them out.

It would be great to have the opportunity to meet you and I hope you can make it out to one of our meetings in the future. I am sure Kyler our membership director has already reached out to you or will be shortly to let you know about upcoming opportunities to meet the members. I am one of the “crew” that puts on BrickCan a Lego convention that takes place in Richmond. It is coming up on the first weekend of May. I will send you a PM about it as it is a great way to meet a large number of AFOLs and get a real feel for the community not only locally but across Canada and the US.

Welcome to the chat Alexei. Is space one of your favorite themes? What else do you build? We have people with all kinds of interests in our group. From builders to collectors and even hoarders.

Cheers,

Hi all,

My name is Steve and new to the forum, and we are from the Collingwood area of Vancouver. I've loved Lego since childhood and now I have a son it is very much back in my life. We have started a city that just keeps growing and growing. I like building MOCs of aircraft and architecture, We also love many of the sets on their own. If you want to see our city click on the twitter link below! Looking forward to being more involved in the Lego community!
