UPDATE: Planning is now underway for the next Zombie Apocafest. Read all about it in our Zombie Apocafest 2009 strategy, tactics, & logistics post.
The LEGO convention season is upon us, and BrickCon 2009 is just over four months away — time to start planning your trip and what you’re going to build. Likewise, it’s time to start planning collaborative displays.
With a successful Zombie Apocafest 2008 under our belts, we at The Brothers Brick are pleased to announce Zombie Apocafest 2009.
To celebrate this announcement and as an example of one of our new prize categories, I’ve turned 7639 Camper into a mobile zombie defense platform.
This year, we’re splitting up the prizes into four categories:
- Best Original Vehicle (last year’s winner: Andrew Lee’s Truck)
- Best Apocafied LEGO Vehicle (new category; example above)
- Best Original Building (last year’s winner: Paul Hetherington’s Casa Baron)
- Best Apocafied LEGO Building (new category)
There are still many details to iron out, and we’re definitely open to suggestions. What kind of overall theme would you like to build toward? If you were there, what worked last year? What didn’t? Let us know in the comments.
