I don't have any LOTR stuff, my sister Eve does, but wont let me use it. So I can't compete. And also judging by the people that are judging, I wont move one for sure.

Don't anyone fool you, custom figures can be just as good as the "official" figures, there is still lots of stuff you can do without using the LOTR legos.

Hey everyone. I really appreciate the invite. However, since you do not allow LDD (as per your rules) I cannot compete. Reason being I simply cannot afford Legos and so have relatively few. (very saddening but believe me if I could have Legos I would)So, as with Marchetti I will also spectate if that is alright.
