BrickFair 2011 Coverage

Recommended Posts

teaser.jpg

BrickCon just wrapped up in Seattle last weekend, just in time to remind me I hadn't posted my BrickFair pictures yet! As always the event was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it to and LEGO fan who can make it. Beyond that though, I'll let me over six hundred pictures do the talking. Sorry for the delay, but I hope you enjoy anyway!

Looks like BIONICLE is still going strong. That Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker mosaic was amazing.

Ah, BrickFair was really great this year! I drove each day (except Saturday), and I was entertained the whole time. I entered 3 models, and I got a lot of positive comments on them, so I was really happy. ^.^ I stopped by the BZPower table, which had some pretty cool stuff on it I must say!

WAHOO! BZPOWER`S BACK! Unfortunately, I don't know where the topic for this announcement is, so I'll just celebrate right here! :br: :happydance: :onfire: :smeag: These new forums look great! Alright, before I get flagged for spamming, I shall right myself. Hmm...Brickfair's looking pretty nice. I like the orange and lime green creatures (and their exorbitant use of Hero Factory pieces). Although I'm still drooling over Roa McToa's new creation from BrickCon.

I'll definitely be there. I might enter some Hero Factory models, once I get my Ferrari put back together after the earthquake destroyed it. I'll certainly be glad to see any fellow BZPower member at BrickFair if you can come! :happydance:

I wish I didnt have to miss this brickfair, I would have loved to see some of these MOCs in person. Brickmagic has a long way to go to look as good. Anyone else notice the Andalite from animorphs?

Absolutely, because there were some great ones there. Not as many great ones as we had at Brickfair though. ;)

Keep your eyes peeled for the Raleigh "Creation Nation" pictures, you just might be able to see the BZP initials I snuck into it XP

Oh, and there will also be a BrickFair convention in Alabama next year, so if you live too far south, don't worry! :P I won't be there, because I can't easily get to Alabama. It's not at the same time of year as BrickFair Virginia, as it is in January instead of August. I hope some people will check it out, if they are able to get to that area. There is more information here if you are interested. Will BZPower go to Alabama? I'm just wondering.

Oh, BrickFair. When do I begin? Thylon and I spending two hours going through one bin of parts? Xaeraz and Zatth having everyone else try on their hats at once? Me rubbing a minifigure plushie on Zatth's head to the chant of "PLUSHIE PLUSHIE PLUSHIE"? Chasing a Zamor catapulted by Sisen and finally catching it on the sixteenth hop? 55555 and Toa Velox trying in vain to adjust a "horrible pose" on one of my MOCs, only to have it break? Seeing ChocolateFrogs baffled as Zatth asked "HOW IS BABBY FORMED?" (xccj had the best answer) Black Six singing into my life-sized BIONICLE microphone prop? (actually that one was just scary) Fun, fun times. (Not a sentiment my feet would readily agree with, to be honest.) Very thorough coverage, I must say. Well done.

Some of the staff are considering making the trip to Alabama, but it definitely won't be as big of a group as at the Virginia event.

That's cool to know. Do you (or anybody) know what kinds of BIONICLE set up (tables, vendors, etc.) will be there?

How is Babby formed was amazing! Also Zatth's awesome Kazoo cover of Final Countdown while waiting for the Door-prizes =D Hopefully again next year!

Every time BZP posts pictures of these events, I regret my generaly position in the UK, and my lack of ever being in the US. Good to see that there are still a lot of Bionicle creations there though, I particularly like the various rahi. That apocalego theme is particularly fascinating, but loads of this stuff is awesome. Wish I could have been there so badly :none:

Hey, you could go to LEGO World if you were in Denmark! I've heard that's it's amazing. It's also sponsored by LEGO themselves I believe. You might want to check that out if you are unable to make it to any US LEGO conventions. ;)

I was at Brickfair! I'm that guy in the tan-and-brown Tye-dye shirt. It was awesome, and the only thing I would change from my first experience there is take more money and buy more stuff. :P Also getting a gunmetal Kraahkan rox'rd my soxrz. (somehow I managed to miss all the stuff Sumiki listed)

I'll be going next year. I'm going to bring an awesome Hero Factory Hydra MOC that I've been working on in the past 3 days. I just need 2 more Raw-Jaw sets to make the two other heads for the thing. It's about a foot and a half when standing up.
