What do you mean - it's right there (but I'll add "Zwolle" for added clarity).

Toy Fair (New York, USA) takes place in February. That's when we see most of the Summer lineup of sets!

Bricks by the Bay 2010 (California, USA) happened in April. No one knows when next year's will be held, but it should be on the same month! :thumbup:

Comic-Con (California, USA) took place this month, June. Usually there are a handful of exclusive, limited edition sets for sale there, as well as one Star Wars product being revealed (this year, the UCS Obi-Wan's Jedi Starfighter).

LEGOLAND California's Star Wars Days (California, USA) happen in August. Can't wait to see what's in store in person this year! :sweet:

P.S. According to this article, "calender is part of the finishing process or device on making clothes or paper to give the material an even or glossy look." :tongue:

Thanks guys!

I'll add these!

Don't forget the Google Calendar for LEGO Conventions - one of the several global calendars set up for LUGs to use to share

Yeah, I had a look at them, but most of them are incomplete (you have to jump between them to get the full picture). I wanted to make a complete :classic:

Comic Con is actually in July, not June.

Why don't you create a (new) IPboard calender for this ?

Well, there is allready a calender here at EB, and I think it's perfect to use for managing the exact dates. However, the purpose of this calender is to be a sort of reference. I've found that IP-board style calenders, Google calenders etc tend to miss out on many events and they don't give you an nice yearly overview.

Have to admit, I am SUPER-STOKED about a LEGO event here in T.O.! No borders to cross, no two-plus-hour jaunt out to 'hotel row' by the airport.

Thanks for listing all of these events. It's nice to have a rough idea of what happens where and when. :thumbup::classic:

Do add that. I just got back from the 2010 event, wherein I picked up a poster of all the 2010 minifigs and a pair of White Boba Fetts. The only thing is that the date tends to vary. The past three events were in September, then June, and now August.

Can you tell some more about the event. Lot of people? AFOL focus or kids-focus? Is it always SW theme etc.

Thanks!
