    A man’s home is his castle…or man cave.

    He still has Lego? How old is he?

    @Jonathan Mason

    He’s Roy. That alone answers the question.

    Is it an American thing to say “Legos”? When I was growing up in Britain it was just Lego, or Lego blocks.

    Nice work on the colouring in.
    BTW my parents kept all my old lego in the attic. My son has it now and seems to be enjoying it as much as I did.

    Probably an Americanization. Hardly the first and hardly important. What IS important, especially for Roy, is that the Lego Movie is out now and apparently superb. Count on Roy seeing it.

    Did Roy ‘block’ himself in? Is this building representing his entire collection, or is there another fort on the way?

    Way to go on the color blocks.

    He needs to show that they’re both important and necessary. Another fort isn’t out of the question.

    It wasn’t officially decreed, of course, but plenty of people do say ‘legos’ here.Of course, they come from Denmark, and pluralizing is looser there. The plural of egg in Scandinavian is… egg.

    The coloring took forever. I did one strip of five rows, and repeated it all over the castle. So I had to tweak it for perspective, and add shadowing for depth. John doesn’t know that some things take longer to draw than totters! ;)

    There are more lego gags to come. Not next week, but in your Working Daze future.

    Between Christmas and New Year’s 2012 we went into NYC for the day. Saw a few things we wanted to take in, and 13 year old David particularly wanted to see the Lego store in Rockefeller Center. Quite a sight. Kathy would never have dragged Roy out.

    One of the best Christmas gifts I ever gave to my many nieces and nephews were large buckets of Legos. Even the nieces still talk about them today, many years later!

    There is nothing wrong with keeping childhood toys!! I still have the train engine from the World War II era that my aunt gave me when I was 5….as well as many others that my daughters played with and soon my grandson will get to enjoy them!!!!

    I still have my plastic dinosaurs. Not much else, but those I managed to hold onto.
