Although I don’t really collect LEGO Minifigs, I have a few favorites that I’ve acquired over the years. I also have many minifigs that are part of sets I own. Until now, I haven’t had a nice way to display my minifigs, so most of them have been in zipper storage bags. However, that has just changed because today I built several stands to display them (out of LEGO bricks of course)!

This past Saturday, October 18th, was the first Twin Cities Brick eXpo (TCBX), and my first time displaying at a LEGO event. I attended BrickWorld 2008 this summer in Chicago, but did so with my family just to view the displays. Although, TCBX was smaller than BrickWorld, it included many different types of displays, offering a great cross section of LEGO projects.
The event was free and the number of visitors were not counted. The consensus was that we had at least a few hundred visitors and there was steady stream of people at my tables all day. It was mostly families and it was great to see so many kids pulling parents between items saying, ‘Wow, look at this!’
I only learned about TCBX about one week before the event from the Fascinating LEGO Model of the Day, and was very gracious that event organizer Stein Settergren was able to accommodate me with such short notice. I met members from TwinLUG and the Greater Midwest LEGO Train Club on Saturday for the first time and everyone was very friendly and welcoming.
The event was in Bloomington, Minnesota, which was about a 3 hour drive for me. After arriving and setting up my stuff, I took pictures of the other exhibits before the event opened to the public at 10am.

Here is a set of five small, Halloween-themed sculptures. These models contain mostly common bricks, are easy to build, and I think make cute holiday decorations. There is a Ghost, Witch, Pumpkin, Bat, and Skull.
I created these sculptures for a LEGO building workshop on Saturday, October 11, 2008 at the Central Wisconsin Children’s Museum. I did a LEGO Discovery Days Workshop in June, and the museum asked me back for another project. There are 16 kids signed up to build and I’m looking forward to this event.
