About Me Pages: About Peoples_General (772)


My name is John-Paul, I was born in the Philippines and came to the U.S. when I was nearly 5yrs old in 1986. I was introduced to Lego at the age of 4, when my aunt sent me a Lego set from the USA about a year prior to moving from the Philippines.

Now at the age of 31 I study Politics and Economics, and on my spare time I like to read up on Business, Sociology, Psychology, various Sciences, Religions/Philosophy, and Engineering. I am a believer of "Quantum Consciousness", Science, as well as Eastern Philosophy, and Buddha's and Jesus' teachings of Love and Compassion.

I work for LEGO at LEGO Brand Retail (aka LEGO Stores); currently in the Rockefeller Center LEGO Store in New York City.

My LEGO collecting went from playing around with Castle, Town/City, Pirates, and Space when I was younger. I started to focus more and more on Castle during my late elementary and highschool years. Then in my college years I became fascinated with global politics and the military. I then found myself building creations branching into two themes: "Ancient" and "Modern". The Ancients Theme was to me a more epic version of the Medieval era Castles, while the Modern theme was basically 1/40 scale City/Town theme with the military forces thrown in.

However around 2004, as I got into a... more open minded state with regards to certain possibilities in the geo-political sense... I merged the two Ancients and Modern themes and using games like Age of Empires as inspiration, branched out several more time periods in between as well as put elements from my favorite science fiction shows/stories and created an epic story and universe I call ORIGIN.

Now I use LEGO to have a tangible visualization of the people, places, and objects from my ORIGIN universe. The ORIGIN story is an epic and it is spread out through several millennia, hence the multiple time periods covered by my LEGO collection.

My family and friends all know of my Lego hobby and accept it as a part of who I am. The way I see it: for some it is simply a hobby, for others its a mere "toy", but to me and a few others out there LEGO is an art medium.

My Ancient Era and Medieval Era armies circa 2004. (1,236 minifigs)




My LEGO Earth Civilization armies are arranged in this manner:
EARTH (time periods)
Colonial (unknown, sometime before 10,000 BCE)
Legendary (10,000 BCE - 2500 BCE)
Archaic (1800 BCE - 1000 BCE)
Classical (1000 BCE - 250 BCE)
Great Empires (250 BCE - 500 CE)
Medieval (500 - 1000)
Late Medieval (1000 - 1500)
Enlightenment (1500 - 1800)
Industrial (1800 - 1900)
Great Wars (1900 - 1960)
Information (1960 - 2030)
Digital (2030 - 2150)
Exploration (2150 - 2500)
Galactic (2500 - 8000)
Quantum (8000 - beyond)

I also have in my collection of minifig armies, factions which are Humans from other worlds/civilizations. In addition there are factions of races/species across the many galaxies of my ORIGIN universe.

The "Weight Classes" of each LEGO Army and their MINIMUM amount of units
TMI - Tribals/Militias/Insurgents = 50 units
SNK - Small Nation/Kingdom = 200 units
MNK - Medium Nation/Kingdom = 400 units
LNK - Large Nation/Kingdom = 600 units
SEN - Spanning Empire/Nation = 800 units
GSP - Global Super Power = 1,000 units
