A PENSIONER’S vintage Lego collection could fetch £20,000 — after his wife said the toys took up too much room.
Hans Brummer, 73, spent more than 40 years buying secondhand boxes of the kids’ building sets.5After spending over 40 years buying secondhand boxes of the kids’ building sets, pensioner Hans Brummer is selling his precious vintage Lego collectionCredit: Roland Leon
He kept them all in his garage, but wife Amanda, 55, wants the space to set up a home gym.
The retired car delivery firm boss owns around 600 sets dating from the 1970s to the 2000s.
It took auctioneers a whole day to pack them into two vans.
Most of the sets are still in their original boxes so of particular value to fans and collectors.
Hans said: “I started collecting Lego in the 1970s and then when eBay came along it became more of an investment as sets I picked up for a few pounds could sell for £70 or £80.
“But now my wife tells me we need a gym to keep fit and healthy and so I have cleared it all out and we have a treadmill, a cross trainer and a rowing machine on its way.”
The couple, from Kidderminster, Worcs, also plan to use the cash to jet off to Dubai for a month, once restrictions allow.5Hans, 73, took the plunge after his wife Amanda, 55, complained about the toys taking up too much roomCredit: Roland Leon 5The collection, which comprises 600 sets dating from the 1970s to the 2000s, is set to fetch £20,000 at an auction tomorrowCredit: Roland Leon 5Hans said 'My wife tells me we need a gym to keep fit and healthy and so I have cleared it all out'Credit: Roland Leon 5The pair are lso planning on enjoying a month-long break in Dubai with the cash, when restrictions are liftedCredit: Bournemouth News Most read in NewsLive BlogPOLITICS LIVESocial distancing laws to be SCRAPPED & we must live with virus, Hancock saysKNIFE TERRORKnifewoman whispered 'sorry princess' as she knifed pal tied to bed 18 times'HELLSTORM OF GRIEF'Mom's pain as girl, 4, accidentally hanged herself with unicorn helmetTV STAR SEARCHIbiza Weekender star, 21, found safe after going missing for 5 daysPicturedPAWNBROKER MURDERFamily 'devastated' as man, 21, knifed to death outside Cash ConvertersPOLE STAR TORMENTBritish pole-dancing champion, 27, hanged herself after lockdown struggle
Amanda said: “I am pleased he is selling it because I feel it was a bit of an obsession. He was going to sell it for my pension but I want him to enjoy the money now as it is all from his hard work.”
One of the most expensive lots is a Lego Technic Liebherr excavator, still in its unopened box, which is worth £300.

Man of Steel fans, get ready for yet another feature film. On Feb. 26, it was announced that a Superman reboot is currently in the works over at Warner Bros. and DC. If Henry Cavill is replaced in the role, it would mark the fourth time an actor gets to sport the iconic red and blue in film; following Christopher Reeve, Brandon Routh, and of course, Cavill himself. Very few details about the project are known at this time, outside of who is writing the script and what producers are involved. Below we've broken down some of the most important details including whether or not Cavill will be returning to the role and hints at a potential plot.
