Very upset this morning... I saw a Lego post online today about some of the collectible mini-figures that an adult Lego fan had for sale. We've been collecting the entire series for as long as I can recall and we've gotten most of the series complete... they've been on a board, waiting to be framed to hung in Kaedin's new Lego room and studio that's under construction (we've renovated the finished basement to be a safe, handicap accessible, build- friendly place!!)
But today, upon pulling the (yes, very dusty,sorry about that!) board down... I was troubled to find DOZENS missing.
Now, there aren't that many people who have access to my bedroom where these are kept. Kaedin having taken them down is out of the question, For one, I see his play area daily, and would have seen all these figures if they made their way into the Lego he builds freely with. Two, he is a really good kid, who would NEVER touch something that we keep safe on a shelf - We have VERY few things displayed that aren't for play - and those few things we all agreed on as a family. The one time Kaedin wanted to take a PICTURE of some of these figures, he asked both mommy AND daddy to be SURE it would be okay AND he asked us to get them down AND put them back away.
Needless to say, regardless of who is responsible (and we do, sadly, have an idea, fortunately the suspected culprit hasn't been welcome in our home for some time)...but now I'm upset and anxious to replace them. Sadly, many get FAR more expensive long after they've retired...so they won't be $3/each anymore if we COULD find them all.
But we're sharing this sad news in hopes I can fix this before Kaedin ever has to have his heart broken over it, as he was very excited to have them framed and put up as soon as the Lego Room is complete (We're painting, the ceiling light and fan just went in!)...
If anyone has ANY of the following, we'd REALLY like to arrange trades, or to buy them if you know anyone with any at a reasonable cost. Sadly, the Bunny Suit Guy (that i KNOW we had two of,and both are gone!) WAS supposed to make an appearance on Easter, which isn't going to happen now. Hopefully he doesn't ask. :- (
Thank you in advance to anyone able to help us piece this mess back together. And to whomever stole from my child, presumably to support your drug habit? There's a special place in hell for you, just you wait.
