BrickWorld 2007

BrickWorld 2007 is being held in Chicago this weekend (well, June 21-24). Photos are starting to show up on the ‘net, including the dedicated Flickr group and a large photoset from attendee Captain Redstorm.

As always at events, there are more pictures than we could possibly show here. Here’s a semi-random shot of a mecha:

The world-famous Mos Eisley diorama is at BrickWorld:

I’ll update this post with links to more coverage as I run across it.

Indy Fig

Brickshelf user Tilius has posted an CGI image of the new Indiana Jones minifigure.

New whip, new hat, possibly even some sort of new bag/pouch? Plus, of course, new head, torso and leg designs? I like. A lot.

EDIT (AB): seems to have been the first to post this picture, and the MTV Movies Blog posted a higher-resolution version the next day. Oh, and don’t miss the rather hilarious discussion of this photo on Flickr.

EDIT 2 (AB): Tilius seems to have moved or deleted the image, so I’m replacing it with the high-res version from the MTV Movies Blog.

Interview with the Arvo brothers on Masoko Tanga

Tom over at Masoko Tanga has a great interview with Ramón and Amador, better known as the dynamic Arvo duo.

All our MOCS are done by both, we take the initiative from a suggestion, an idea or a recollection so that we both contribute ideas…. In the Ford GT each one constructed a different part, but always together in permanent communication. This is the most important aspect; communication.

Head on over to Masoko Tanga for more.
