Private exhibitor-only convention: MAY 17-18, 2012

-Assistant Brand Manager Ariana Keyser, will be our special guest. She has dedicated all day Friday to the event, unfortunately, she will need to fly back Saturday morning. Ariana has an in-depth presentation covering the new LEGO Monster Fighters theme with images of the sets, minifigs, and various media content including a new mini-movie that will not be aired until June. She has also been able to secure copies of the physical products to be displayed for the entire weekend at the LEGO Booth. To make her welcome, it would be great to have a haunted table or two for MOCs - if you haven't built a MOC yet, this would be something to think about. A haunted house, monsters, thinks that go bump in the night...

Many thanks to Kevin Hinkle and the LEGO Group for the guest visit!

-Call for Star Wars MOCs! Because of the Death Star Build by Dan Parker, part of the exhibit hall will be set aside for photo opps for the visiting 501st Legion. Visitors will include Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and stormtroopers! With this, there will be a silent auction for MOCs with 501st characters and Star Wars sets, with proceeds going to the Make a Wish Foundation. Those withe Star Wars MOCs are encouraged to register their models so I can place them in the exhibit area. These will be the settng for the photo ops, so if you want to be seen, this is probably the place. Those who wish to donate a Star Wars set for auction, please send me an e-mail at admin@brickjournal.com. And yes, there will be plenty of time to take pics - the 501st will be there all weekend, including Friday evening.
