BrickWorld 2008

23 posts in this topic

So, I'm a little behind on getting our coverage up of the BrickWorld 2008 event in Chicago. Copmike and I brought a display. You can see some of it here (Fabuland Death Star *winner best vignette!) and here (Fabuland Tantive IV). You can also check out the non-Star Wars and less popular Fabuland Sherwood Forest we built. In the meantime, I wanted to start sharing the event with you guys...

Pre-Event and Setup

Our display was put together and setup by the power team of:

Me

Haha looks like it was a brilliant day. I love the fabuland war sets, but it pretty much all looked amazing - an awesome tribute to the creativity of AFOL's!

I'm glad you're posting your coverage! I was a bit worried you weren't going to.

It's nice to see that even if I couldn't make it to the event, I was still there in spirit. :sweet:

Did you actually bring Riley to the event? That picture looks like it was taken somewhere else.

Excellent preview! Thanks for the lovely pictures. I am looking forward to the full coverage with more pictures. :wink: Hopefully, one day, I will be able to join up these kind of events. I am sure it will be great fun. :sweet:

This looks like it was a lot of fun. I can't wait to see the rest of the coverage. I was considering attending at one point, but it was too far away for me to drive to (which seems to be the only safe way of taking MOCs, and displaying those is half the fun :tongue:). If any of you are going to the Brickfair event in DC later this summer though, I'll probably be there.

You're teasing us with this coverage, but it's all been good so far. :thumbup:

I offered Jipay some of my clam cream sundae, but he just kept making that face at me. Sure beats the food in the Mystery Castle, I know that much, and we had great seats for the show. I especially appreciated how all the women would lean in to get a closer look.

And yeah, I see Jocko and maybe UB, though it's hard to tell because he's both blurry and facing the wrong way, which is pretty much how he usually looks. :laugh:

Good to meet you at brickworld, congrats on the well deserved win for Final Dual. I checked out walrus and Wacker, this week, and I'm sure I would have gotten more out of your display if I'd read it before hand.

If you want to display your stuff more often, NILTC doesn't have a fabuland module yet...

Thanks Hinckley, your pictures give a lot of insight and information about the event. What fun you must have had! I envy you all the more now, I wish I could have been there... :grin:

I have enjoyed looking at all the awesome models on display, really something mind-blowing!

Oh, how I wish I could have gone.... :cry_sad: But Chicago is nowhere near me.

Well, there's always next year. Or do they host it in a different location every year? I'm confused.... :wacko:

Great event coverage. Very thorough, yet alot easier to look through than the massive unorganized photostreams that seem to be the main record of Brickworld. There were a couple of things I had already forgotten about, that I was reminded of. Really a great event.

Brickworld is, and will likely always be, a Chicago area event. It actually takes place in Wheeling, a northern suburb of Chicago, and will be in the same location next year as it was this year.

Chicago is very close to Columbus. Only about a six hour drive... :classic: You should come next year!

Thanks for the Pics from Brickworld Hinckley! As a new member of EB its nice to put a face to some of the senior members (makes me feel even more at home here!)

I have also checked out some of the other pics from your full coverage on Brickzone, and even read some Whacker and Walrus comics too.

I will have to see if Australia has any cool conventions now( i had heard there was something in Melbourne every year (10 hour drive though)
