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.

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.

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.

The online sale takes place tomorrow via Special Auction Services, of Dudley, West Mids.

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.

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.
