BrickScout Ted's LEGO News & Reviews

Welcome to my Lego site. I'm Ted, and I'm passionate about bricks and have been since I was a little kid and like many of you, that has never left me so I created a site. BrickScouts.org has been up since 2005 sharing news and thoughts on all things Lego and I hope for many more years. Below are a few popular sections but please, click around and enjoy.

Happy building,
Ted

Retiring Sets - The Big List.

I try and keep you updated on all the Lego sets that are retiring or ones that have retired so that you can find the sets you want before they are gone. Once they go out of production many of these retired sets become hard to find and even if you can find them on Amazon, folks use them as investments and the prices tend to rise.

Why You Should Trust My Reviews

BrickScout Ted Lego Lover

I held a strong love for Legos as a child, my parents would tell me they had to force me to go outside at times because I just wanted to build.  I rediscovered that passion a while back as an adult and was amazed at how much the Lego world had grown.  My wife calls Legos my "full time hobby." I am always looking forward to the next build and you can be sure I will take detailed notes about every step of the process so I can provide the most complete reviews out there.  I enjoy the fun of a challenging, detailed build, but I can't decide if I like that more than the satisfaction of seeing a beautiful completed kit sitting on my build table.  My goal for this website has always been to convey my lifelong passion for Legos to readers and hopefully help them decide which sets will be perfect for them.
