Potentially our largest display this year, Brick Fest Live! 2015 was a great success! With about 30 CoWLUG members displaying creations and supplying parts for the displays (including new members, Steven Lopez and Kathy Nicolai), we spread the LEGO love over 1180 square feet….that’s 59 8’x30” tables!!
Up front we had the Modular Town, featuring Buildings from Myself and Jim West, as well as railyards by Ralph and Chris Hembree.
…flanked by a forest fire thanks to Ralph and “Friend’s Town” courtesy of Cynde.
Around the bend, We travel through Jim’s Amusement Park….
…and into Lester’s Steampunk and Old West towns…
On the Other side of the Display, we had Jason’s Airport, Jerry’s train station and mountain…and a super keen arctic scene from Ralph!
Adjacent to the cities, we had MOC’s from Todd and Cynde, Ralph’s Minecraft Display, and some awesome trains from Wil Hata as well as MechTech thanks to Dan Wray.
Our “Middle Table” featured an epic Pirate assault on Reed’s Hope Castle.
Alas, This ended up being the only effective cannon against the castle…
Finally, in our “Third section” we had Jeremy’s Collection of MOC’s, including this one, which was my favorite!
An awesome USS Enterprise from Steven Lopez
and the Infamous GBC (Great Ball Contraption) thanks to Ian, Abby, Jim West, Serena, Todd and numerous others.
Along with the “bumper car arena” from Ralph, Annette and Darin, among others.
Though this Brick Fest Live! Event was mainly an event geared towards the “kids and parents” crowd, we did meet several new potential AFOL members. The event featured 4-hour sessions with numerous interactive mosaic and free building stations and a “build / race your LEGO car” area, featuring some spectacular crashes as well as an array of LEGO video games on Xbox 360s.
As well as a mix of Various LEGO themed vendors….
…a couple of which supplied, Lester, Dan and myself with some awesome new gear and guns!
However, perhaps the biggest news from the event is it’s desire to grow and be a full blown 3-day LEGO AFOL convention, here in Denver….potentially as soon as next year!
Thanks, once again, to all that helped out and displayed…we could not have done any of this without you.
