I am a green-tailed lemur from the island of Madagascar and am very happy to be working in the TBB compound. This “mailbag” feature is my own invention. I got the idea after noticing that the lovely paper that I was given for lunch had messages on it. When I asked Master Andrew about them, he said they were from our readers and that I could eat them. The messages that is, not the readers. He said the other contributors were too busy to deal with the mail, but that I was free to do as I pleased as long as the coffee was fresh and his Bugatti Veyron was washed.
I plan to answer a few questions each week. In this first post I will answer some common questions we have received. If you have questions that you would like me to answer, either serious or silly, real or imagined, please ask. Here we go!
Will you sell me the models featured on The Brothers Brick?
Unfortunately, no. With few exceptions, they are one-of-a-kind creations and are not owned by The Brothers Brick. You can always contact the builder, via whatever website they are using to host their pictures, and see if they are interested in selling their work. We do not sell contributors at this time either. Please stop asking about Simon. We are keeping him.
What is an AFOL?
AFOL is an acronym that stands for Adult Fan of LEGO. It is a broad term that applies to anyone over 18 years old who is a fan of the LEGO company and/or its products. Similar terms are ALE (Adult LEGO enthusiast), AFFOL (Adult Female Fan of LEGO), TFOL (Teen Fan of LEGO), KFOL (Kid Fan of LEGO). There are many kinds of AFOLs including those who build their own creations, those who collect sets, those who customize LEGO elements, etc. It also can stand for Adult Fan Of the Lemur.
Are the contributors of The Brothers Brick actually brothers?
No. One of us is a sister.
Thank you for your time and messages! Please leave any new questions in the comments below. Josh is having one of his ‘episodes’ and won’t come out of his office. Once he recovers, I will ask him to create me an email address.
