We’ve done many shows before, but this was the first time we rented out a dedicated space specifically for a Lego extravaganza. In addition to exhibits (along with Kansas City and Iowa builders), we also had competitions, raffles, and several activities for kids. Advertisements
10,000 visitors. Two days. 29 members. My first time at our annual show at the Lauritzen Botanical Gardens was fantastic. I lost my voice showing off some new speeder bikes, movie scenes, steampunk, and of course Plo Koon ships.
The First LEGO League, CEEN-BOT, and other robotics competitions are held every year at the Strategic Air Command museum. We showed our non-robotic Legos amidst colossal aircraft and hordes of super smart kids.
Alamo Drafthouse Cinema invited us to show our creations in conjunction with The LEGO Batman Movie. Our dimly-lit displays enthralled several families on their way to the movie, as well as several couples on their way to Fifty Shades Darker.
Let’s just say I don’t live anywhere near San Diego. But our local comic convention was still pretty fun–lots of cosplayers, LEGO fans, and even actor Sean Gunn! I displayed two scenes from the Force Awakens, as well as several other pop culture icons.
