What do Hogwarts, the Batcave, the Shire, a four-foot Borg cube, and an eight-foot Space Needle have in common? They were all at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle this last weekend!

Registration is now open for the third annual Brick Fiesta that will take place in Dallas from July 4-7.

I will of course be there since I am a Dallas resident and I hope to see Continue reading →

Every once in a while I will be reminded of a Lego event in a country where we may not have too many readers of the blog. Although it may not be pertinent to most of you, news like this is a good reminder of the world’s widespread love of the brick. So, if you’re Continue reading →

This weekend we’ve got BrisBricks in Brisbane, and AMRA in Sydney will be showcasing LEGO trains. I’ll be at Brisbricks for at least the Saturday with my latest toys.
Awesome graphic, Iain Heath. And remember, register now to guarantee engraved bricks, swag bags, and other good stuff.
While some other LEGO conventions have individual builders reserve their own table space, BrickCon is all about large-scale collaborative displays. Each year since 2008, The Brothers Brick has sponsored a display, ranging from a highly coordinated zombie apocalypse to our anything-goes celebration of all things Japanese. Last year, we tried something even more anarchic than Continue reading →
