Apperently the current generation finds the television-hero’s more important than the “real”-hero’s _ (although it is yet to see if Obama is a hero ofcourse :p)

Go Jo :)

One of my favourite toys as a kid and one which my brothers and I enjoyed together (instead of fighting over who got to play with what!) And now JKR is “Legoed” brilliant!
