Many generations of kids love Lego for its trademark building blocks that can be shaped into just about anything the imagination allows. In recent years, the Danish company has licensed the rights to create play sets for many popular franchises, including “Star Wars,” “Harry Potter” and “Overwatch.”

Tech expert Omar Gallaga says he’s a “Lego man.” That’s the title of his recent Medium story.  By his own account, he’s obsessed, and he became that way long after his own childhood in the 80s.

“What got me back into it in a big way where I was buying my own sets was this Overwatch connections,” Gallaga says. “I’m really into the Overwatch video game, and they started making these sets and they’re really nice looking sets and they’re really fun to put together.”
