LEGOmaniacs on the World Wide Web
This document is part of a World Wide Web resource located at
There is also a
text-only version of this document.
The following LEGOmaniacs have WWW pages or other links.
Some of these have lots of LEGO® stuff.
In other cases, these are just people's regular home pages,
not their stashes of LEGO® data,
but you can see the faces and other interests of
some people you might meet in rec.toys.lego or other Internet LEGO® hot spots.
I've indicated in each case whether my link leads to
the person's home page (and if so, whether any LEGO® is there)
or a special LEGO® page.
Some of the LEGO® pages are mother lodes of fascinating images and
information; I've tried to give hints pointing to the good stuff,
but it's practically impossible to keep track of it all.
