Brickworld 2008 Review

June 24th, 2008

I’m back home from my first visit to Brickworld, and I’m disappointed. Not because the LEGO creations weren’t good, because they were amazing. But rather, because I’ll have to wait a whole year to go back as a registered attendee. Next year, I plan to be there for the entire event and will bring some of my sculptures and mosaics to display. The up side is that it gives me a whole year to build new items to bring.

As promised, here are some pictures from Brickworld 2008.

There were large scale train setups by several different LEGO Train Clubs. These layouts had so much detail packed into a small area that you could keep coming back to the same display and find interesting things you missed.

Full article includes more pictures…

The whole family, including our 2 year old, really liked these Scooby Doo sculptures.

These huge skyscraper sculptures near the center of the room were impossible to miss.

Note the reflection pool mosaic in front of this Taj Mahal sculpture – creative touch!

This was a fully working slot machine made entirely of LEGO. I have to admit, was skeptical that it was really all LEGO until I saw it inside.

The LEGO company brought along their own weather man (and a mouse).

As fond as I am of LEGO mosaics, I had to include a picture of this one.

It was hard to pick which was more impressive, the massive sky scrapers above, or these mini-scale versions, which actually had more detail than the larger sculptures. (But my wife and I both picked these)

It was hard to select which pictures to feature here, because the large amount of impressive creations on display. It took many hours to see all of them.

If you find LEGO creations like this interesting and can make a trip to Brickworld, the dates for next year have already been announced -  June 18-21, 2009. I am planning to be there, and have items on display, so I hope to meet you there!
