As soon as I finish typing this I'm hopping in the shower and packing up the swag. It's time to head to BricksLA! I'm very excited that Mrs. BrickNerd is joining me this year (her first time). We'll see you there!
Another year of Brickworld has come and gone, but the memories and photos remain for us to share with you. The BrickNerd crew had another showing this year at what is one of the largest if not the largest LEGO convention in North America.
There was a little something for everyone at this year's convention including a massive WWII battleship, an abandoned amusement park, some very cool life-sized video game replicas, and even a mecha Duplo bunny.
If you ever have the chance to attend I highly recommend you do so, because you will have the chance to meet some truly friendly and, quirky LEGO fans from around the world who really make the event what it is, fun.
If you're in the Los Angeles area and want to see some awesome MOCs, meet some excellent people and maybe, just maybe score some BrickNerd swag (hunt me down like an animal) then get to Bricks LA in Pasadena!
Brickworld 2015 is now well underway in Chicago. The first two and half days are dedicated to the setup of displays, competitions, expert panels, and other various sessions. If you live in the mid-west (or anywhere in the world really!) you should at least make a point to attend once in your lifetime. Besides the all-access only days there are also two public days Saturday 10AM - 4PM and Sunday 10AM - 3PM. Also, if you can track me down during the public hours I will award you with a BrickNerd sticker or brick (hint, I am with WisLUG)
Here are just a few of the many many things that you will see at Brickworld:
If you're going to be in the Raleigh North Carolina area next month head over to Brick Universe. Brick Universe is a four day private and public event at the Raleigh Convention Center. Builders can enjoy four days of events and activities on March 26-29 and the public is welcome on the 28th & 29th to check out all the amazing creations.
