“I build and create new things almost every day. It's endless! The days are not long enough for me.”

Our ReBricker of the Week, Polenord59, or Jerome, has quite a LEGO® collection, as you can see from the photo above. 

“I remember very well my first box of LEGO [bricks]. That was in 1974: the Lego Family Box No. 200. I will never forget this box, because it is the one that gave me ‘the passion of the brick’!”

From there, Jerome got swept up in LEGO Classic Space in the 1980s, which eventually gave way to Star Wars.

 

“Today I am a ‘jack of all trades.’ Movies inspire me a lot, and I try to put some humor in my creations.”

These range from small models to massive layouts – like his latest diorama based on Jurassic Park.

Jerome is a member of “Chti LUG” a LEGO User Group of about 70 members active in the North of France.

“This association is young, only 2 years old, but it's really nice to meet adults fans of LEGO to share our passion. What I love is to collaborate together on a creation. It's very exciting.”

“What often amuses me is when visitors come to see my accomplishments ask me, ‘where do your ideas come from?’... I don't know... it's the secret of the creation. "

Right now, Jerome is working on a new Walking Dead project with lots of zombies. Follow him on ReBrick or Flickr to see it when it’s done!
