Anywhosit, since I last posted it's been at least two months, and in that time, Christmas break drew to a close and I'm now in the middle of my fourth semester at college. Yayz.
It's amazing how fast college is going. Another two years and I'll be on my last semester. There's a scary thought. What's even scarier is that I was looking at a friend's LEGO magazine today, and it hit me that over a decade has gone by since my most favorite LEGO theme, the Adventurers, first premiered in the LEGO universe.
What a wonderful year 1998 was for LEGO. Adventurers had come out, and with them the first tan pieces came into existence (Pohatu, you're welcome ), and so had the Hydronauts and the Stingrays, the Insectoids were creeping throughout my bedroom, and the Ninjas were cleverly sneaking through traps and stealing treasures.
Ten years later, and my how LEGO has changed. But, I've endured this decade as my nostalgia continues to get the better of me in some cases, and I enjoy many of the more recent sets almost as much as I enjoy the old. The same holds true for BIONICLE. There are BIONICLE sets that through the years I didn't like, and there were those I absolutely love (Vorox FTW!). As 2009 begins, I look forward to the ideas LEGO has in store for the remainder of the BIONICLE storyline, a storyline that captivated me since 2001 and has undoubtedly extended my fandom of a childhood toy which I will always cherish.
Seeing as it is now about 1:30 a.m. in my time zone, I will bid you adieu. Thanks for reading, and if you have free time, check out the new comic I posted in my topic. It's a good 'un!
