Name: Mike Freeman
Position: LEGO® Ambassador
Favourite LEGO® Theme: Anything Superheroes
My favourite MOC has to be my first ever Blocks Magazine feature build – The Bat-Sub. This was based upon the LEGO® Ideas Yellow Submarine set, but totally rebuilt to suit Batman’s specific requirements. This build also includes one of the many ways I have interpreted water within my MOCs.
What got you into/back into LEGO®:
I had all kinds of LEGO® as a boy, from Space to Paradisa to Model Team. I have always had LEGO®, however I got serious about collecting and MOC building when I gave up full time work to raise my son in 2009. I had far more time and brain capacity to myself again, and LEGO® helped me stay sane throughout that period.
I have displayed some of my set collection and MOCs at many LEGO® shows throughout the UK. I am a regular contributor to Blocks Magazine. I have been credited in 2 LEGO® based books, and build a huge variety of commissioned LEGO® models for a whole host of clients.
