My name is Peter Furstenberg. I am a South African fan of LEGO, collector and MOC builder.
As with many kids, LEGO has been a big part of my childhood. I grew up with a handful of sets, which turned into many creations. The only limitation was my imagination.
I started my collection of LEGO in my early 20s, around 1999, where a few Technic and Star Wars caught my eye. I added sets over the years, mostly focusing on the bigger sets. I’ve been consistently adding to the collection over the last 20 years. Today, I focus mainly on the modular building sets and larger sets that catch my interest.
Around five years ago, I joined the zaLUG (South African LEGO User Group) and discovered a whole new family of like-minded LEGO fans like me. My focus turned to MOC building around a year and a half ago, mainly focusing on modular builds. With much interest around my work, I was asked to design a model for the new LEGO Certified Store in Canal Walk, Cape Town.
In 2019 my interest in the LEGO community started to grow. I have some background in television production and decided to produce a YouTube show called BlockBlaze. It revolves around the South African LEGO community through interviews and showcasing their interests and work. Visit www.blockblaze.co.za for more information.
