Finally got to meet Black Six in the non-internet world. Also met some others like Chro, Nealybealy, Steve the Squid, and whoever else stopped by the table.
I won the Dirty Buildster game and got this nice little TECHNIC set
as a prize (and it actually is a nice little set, the steering is pretty cool), as well as the big cup of random pieces I got to build with. I also tried the Blind Speed-Build, didn't win, but the City police set
I got out of it was neat.
And then I spent like too much money on vendors. There was a pick-your-parts-for-eight-dollars thing going, so I did that three times and got a bunch of good stuff from that. There was also a guy selling bags of pieces, which I bought some of (including quite a few Galidor parts, and for such a meh theme that gets stepped on all the time, its pieces are pretty good-looking). I also bought Granite, the tan Slizer/Throwbot.
And some guy had a malfunctioning Technojaw T55 that someone gave him and he didn't feel like dealing with it anymore so he gave it to me. So, having had a Technojaw before, I replaced the wonky core module with my functioning one, and now I have a working and not totally disassembled Technojaw T55 to play with yay.
I also got other cool things like the goodie bag stuff and my badge and snazzy BrickFair polo for helping set up stuff.
The MOCs I sent to Cascade didn't get shipped in time to be displayed, but luckily I brought my handy portal gun and some newer stuff so they could be in the show. One of them was DJ Kumo and his stage, and the other was a little HF-shell-based thing I made. And of course, as you can see in the last entry, I was
DJ Kumo (at some points). I'll probably post a topic with details of that soon.
tl;dr: I had a blast and I hope I can go next year.
