Wife and I were in a mall the other day and saw a Lego store. Went in to look around. Some very nice models to build. Think least cost was about 14 or 15 dollars. Then it went way the hell up in prices depending on what model you were after. Some great looking stuff but would need the money and time to put together plus some damn place to build and store the thing once built. But did look nice.

there are small sets that run 7, 8, 10 bucks. I've got a bunch of space vehicles from back in the 90's that are inexpensive.
of course, my issue is no space. and not much money.

but i LOVE looking at what other people build. and I like taking funny photos of what I do have

So Lego is all in sets these days? I remember when I was a kid mum bought me a denim sack of mixed Lego pieces, I've never seen another like it. I added to it of course, but yeah it was all sets. Few of which ever actually made what was on the box ;)
Last I heard, my sister's kids had my old sack of Lego

no, you can get a box with just bricks and make whatever you want.

sure, LEGO has "themes" like Star Wars, City, Space and so on, but you can certainly make whatever you want with your bricks. no one is stopping you. In fact, there's many an "adult" LEGO fan that buys sets and collects various bricks and makes whole cities out of what they have. "MOC" - my own creation. or something like that.

it's a THING.check it out

I like sets where you can make at least three different builds out of the bricks you get.

this is one of my favorites.

here's a box O Bricks

you can start a kid off with that and let them go wild. The sets are really a more advanced experience.

these days they also include games. That sort of thing doesn't interest me, but LEGO is also involved with films (which are generally quite funny and entertaining, although I've only seen one or two)

Ok, so you can still get an undefined box of Lego. Good. I think a point would have been missed if that were no longer possible.

yup. the entire exercise is very open-ended. You can do whatever you like.

I like making scenes.

I got some tomato plants a few days ago - I was waiting for the temperature to rise and planted them outside today.

Here they are the other day, indoors:
