Brickworld, an annual LEGO convention held in Chicago, is taking place from June 19-22. I am attending the event and am bringing you the most current photos. Here are selected ones from Thursday of the convention that will last until Sunday night. Please see the gallery on flickr.
Some interesting observations so far:
1. The LEGO Group has sent copies of their newest sets, including the upcoming Star Wars Clone Wars sets to be built and played with.
2. Brickforge has an impressive sales booth containing all minifig accessories and tons of new items, like the new Halo spartan armor and helmet along with many other new and never before seen minifig weapons and accessories (review to come next week)
3. I got to sneak a peak at the plans and assembly of the most deadly space station in the galaxy; many Bothans died to bring this information ;)
In order to be have these photos uploaded on the web as soon as possible, I’ve not had time to add descriptions or do any editing. Since there are still three days left of the convention, please let me know what you would like to see by leaving a comment and I’ll do my best to accomodate your needs. It is 1:50am at the time of this post, so I will be getting some sleep for tomorrow’s full day.
