    Congratulations to all these guys. Now you can’t publicly have any harsh criticism of Lego’s products or policies without fear of losing your title! ;)

    @SavaTheAggie: Heh heh, the bolding was just to note that all four of the six people who got the most votes here on TBB ended up becoming an Ambassador. Congrats, Tony! Your name is bolded in my heart. ;-)

    @Dandily: I’ve fixed your name in the post (and on Flickr). You might also want to contact Steve and make sure it’s correct on his end, too.

    Rocko: No title will ever stop me from saying that LEGO needs more females of color in their fine family of minifigs. Nor will I ever stop in my advocacy for the return of the monkey. As a man who love to employ bikini-clad biker-women in his top-notch dioramas, you should appreciate that.

    Congrats to my fellow ambassadors. now who has the key to the ambassadorial restroom?

  6. Nannan

    I’m so glad to see many familiar names make the list. I look forward to a great year.

    I love this, Doug Eaton USA – ParLUGment.

    ParLUGment is the club in Ottawa, Canada. ;-)

    Doug has been a member of the club since the early days and just because he and a few others are not in town with us, does not exclude them from membership. Heck, he attends more meetings than others in the group.

    I laugh, but I am glad Doug made it (especially since I endorsed him) and we have him to represent us again.

    Congrats to all!!!

    Congratulations all!
    Quite a few Australians considering we have such a small population base here in this country.
    We must consume a lot of lego® i presume.
    A shame to see some Ambassadors depart, i hope they return in future rounds of the program.
    May you new Ambassadors fill your roles well, for it is we the LUG`s and `fans` that voted for you to represent US, you have become the `channel` of communication between us and the Lego® company.
    It is a `job` like any other, obviously it has it’s `perks`, but it requires more than just sitting back and reviewing new and upcoming product, and i for one will be expecting to see something more than that from future Ambassadors.
    Once again Congratulations!!
