I'm going to Comic Con?



I'm going to Comic Con. And since Eurobricks is graciously providing two passes (one for me and one for a companion of my choosing) I'm bringing my brother Lyichir along. I'm honestly somewhat grateful that it's only going to be for one day, because this is going to be a VERY new experience for me and I'm sure having to plan for three or four days on such short notice would be incredibly overwhelming.


I also realize that I haven't blogged about BIONICLE's return since the initial leaks back in July. Honestly, I'm tremendously excited based on what I've seen of the new BIONICLE. So if the NYCC new theme reveal happens to be the new BIONICLE, it will be amazing to be one of the first people to witness the official reveal! Of course, if it turns out to be something else, I'm confident it will still be an amazing experience. After all, I'm generally very impressed with the quality of modern day LEGO designs, no matter what the theme — even if it's a theme I don't personally intend to collect.


This might also be good practice for BronyCon 2015 (which I'm also registered for, yay!). Brickfair is the largest fan convention I've ever been to, and it's a lot different than your typical pop culture convention, so learning how to plan and maneuver around the inevitable crowds should be helpful.


It's too early to plan out everything I'll see. My pass is only good for Thursday, October 9, and includes admission to the con itself, the 1:00 p.m. LEGO Group panel, AND the evening event when they'll be announcing a new theme for next year. But since the main NYCC schedule is not posted yet, I have no idea what I'll do for the rest of my day there. I guess I'll have to keep a close eye on that in the weeks to come! In the meantime, I will be enjoying the rest of Ninjago Month here on BZPower — glad to see another of my favorite themes getting some much-deserved recognition. All things considered, I have a lot to look forward to!

Wow, Eurobricks actually did something that isn't imbued with sexism. Never seen that before.

Honestly, I know Eurobricks has some serious issues. However, to generalize EVERYTHING they do as sexist and problematic is completely batty. They're a large LEGO fansite, and so it shouldn't be any surprise at all that a lot of what they do is the same as what you'd see on any large LEGO fansite. If you see prejudice in the stuff that sets them apart from the other fansites you have every right to complain, but it's downright stupid to act as though every single aspect of the site is fraught with bigotry.
