    I’ve tried, but I can’t discern the pattern in LEGO’s set-numbering system. How are they selected? Is there a rhyme or reason to this madness?

    What is your favorite set, least favorite set, most sentimental set, and of course why on each?

    I recently got a copy of Brickmaster Magazine. Having grown up drooling over Lego Catalogs and especially the Idea Books, I was hoping the pages would have some Lego creations but its mostly cartoons and computer-drawn junk. What a wasted opportunity to show kids some things actually made of Lego bricks.

    Does it cost too much to actually build stuff out of Lego bricks or does the Lego Group not know its own strengths?

    Is there any website dedicated to finding and reporting sales and deals on Lego sets? I’ve looked around the inter-webs, but I can’t find anything. How can someone keep up on all the sales going on?

    Where can I resell and buy used BrickArms minifigs? Bricklink does not accept them, I do not see any on Ebay. Is no one willing to part with them or buy mine?

    There are loads of fan created LEGO-related websites out there on the internet. Which ones do you use yourself and recommend to others, and why?

    As my parents recently cleared their attic I had to take over all of my old lego. The sets are from the late 80’s / early 90’s and most are in their original boxes with the instructions. It is mostly city, castle, pirates, technic and some space. I didn’t realize that there was such a huge market for used lego and I have some question concerning the fundamentals of this.

    I haven’t yet decided if I should keep it all or try to sell it off but I’m also considering saving them for a while as an investment. How do you expect the future market for lego to evolve?

    Does keeping them in sets make them more valuable? Also, how much does the box and instructions add to the value? Some are in quite good shape while others are crushed and torn. Is it wise to keep the sets apart or can I mix them up for my nephews/nieces to play with for the time being and then sort it out if I decide to sell them in the future?
