Scrimmy Bingus and the Crungy Spingus


On the first day of Brickfair

Posted by Dina Saruyama , Jul 30 2015 · 82 views

hoo boy was today exciting! After a day and a half on assorted buses, I finally made it to BFVA for the first time. I met a large assortment of BZP friends, even going so far as to do what the youth these days call "hanging out" with some of them. I played Settlers of Catan and remembered why that game has almost destroyed my family (and as usual people ended up with far too many sheep). I took part in an early parts draft that ended as they usually do for me: I grabbed all those pieces that seem fun without grabbing many that are more universally useful. Still, it was a win, and I could at least build some little things like these with them. I also got to see my crab for the first time in a year, which is good because I have missed it a lot. (It's probably still the best MOC I've ever made.)

It's probably a bit anticlimactic that, after all this fun and excitement, what I looked forward to most was getting to sleep in a bed for the first time in two days. (Buses SUCK.)

One Last-Second Build for Brickfair

This year's theme is "Love", and if nobody else is going to use this to bring in gay LEGO, then I sure as heck am.


Almost Ready

Wow, I can't believe Brickfair VA is in a week already! Especially since there are still preparations I'd been putting off.

Like bus tickets! Just bought those today, which means they ended up more expensive than I had planned. With those, though, I've at least got the basics ready. I've got the tickets, the room, and the MOCs. (Well, besides a Love theme vignette I wanted to make; that's gonna be a bit last-minute.) Still, it feels like I've got so little time to prepare!

Still excited, though. This is my first big serious AFOL even type thing. A little anxious! But we'll see. I hope to see some friends there!

Whiny fans keep blaming Hasbro for Victorion having two helicopters.

She's a fan-built bot. People voted for her limbs. People voted for two helicopters, not Hasbro.

Sure, hate the helicopters. (I don't; I think they give some nice symmetry to her.) But don't blame Hasbro for following the fans' votes.

Honestly, you can make this sound like some kind of crusade for justice all you want (I'm going to hope that some of how you worded it is just meant as hyperbole to make a point, though?), but it just comes across to me as being anti-fun and anti-imagination.


There's a time and a place for joke entries to place high in a contest (actually no there really isn't but w/e), but the first site-wide BZP contest is certainly not one of those times.


The first entry offended my eyes.


Well, this was probably in the bottom 3 comics I've read in my life. Didn't make much sense, and some things were hard to read because of the coloring and font style.
