Congratulations Tim & others …
Congrats, Sméagol, and all of the others!
Congrats to Mike!
Interesting list. Lots of different countries than I’ve seen before.
Congratulations, Tim & to all cycle 7 LA’s. Great to see a real LUG based group this cycle. No Flickr rep, which is a little sad (not that I was nominated, myself), maybe next cycle :)
Congratulations everyone! It looks like the AFOL community has a very diverse group of people to represent them. I am very excited to see what they will be able to achieve. Good luck everyone!
I’d like to add my congratulations to everyone.
I am certainly willing to aid Tim in representing the Brothers Brick readership. I will also stick by the platform I published here and on CSF during the nomination process. I think that overlap between communities represented by ambassadors can’t hurt, although I’m certainly happy to see more communities (like in Asia) represented.
Thanks all and grats to all LAs. It’s really, really nice to see such a geographical spread this time.
Commiserations to Nannan for missing out this time, too.
Congratulations to all of the new and returning LEGO Ambassadors.
It’s wonderful to see so many more countries represented this year. Of course, that means that fewer AFOLs in the U.S. are returning as LEGO Ambassadors, but I can’t help thinking that’s a good thing. Fresh blood and diverse perspectives are critically important for a worldwide program like this.
Special congratulations to Tim, our very own LEGO Ambassador!
Yey, we “won”! Congratulations tu all LA’s!
Nannan, any chance of seeing a map with the ambassadors?
