AFOL=Adult fans of Lego just blew my mind..Super custom made lego everything!!

With the new Lego movie out this month, my mind took me to the land of adult Lego fandom.

I had no idea at all that this was even going on.  I knew that a custom made set or a few pieces would show up on a blog now and then and I'd be all" Wow that's pretty awesome". Then POOF its gone.  But never could I imagine that there would be factories and companies dedicated JUST to making custom Lego pieces.
