You guys look like allot of fun, always good seeing a face against a name. I think i would really enjoy having a beer with you at an Oktoberfest:thumbup: . One of the disadvantages of being an Aussie, so far away.

Your powers are great, master JP :laugh:!

This years exclusive event set was a Swedish-France joint venture with a touch of USA.
So without further delay:
Posted Image
The Space Hottie theme is going to be a big hit :grin:. This set includes a collection of cool parts and a custom torso from Hinckley!
The instructions for the tractor & trailer can be found here as a Word document.

And then the famous City Bum by KhoRne was yet another exclusive, only 20 sets made with a signed certificate of authenticity and the rare black beard Posted Image as extra part.
Posted Image


On top of that there was the pieces for PaulC´s (thanks!) reverse built Indiana Jones jeep
that comes as a promo from BrickMaster later this year:
Posted Image
Instructions is found here!

And a 7910 Robot Promotional (Duracell) set from 2004 made the way down the goodie bag also:
Posted Image

Lastly there was a bag of different rare/hard to get pieces & minifigs that I hope everybody enjoyed.

Did that do it for you JP :tongue: ?

The bag rocks! For fun I just did some checking on BL and I only have one single word to express how I felt: "WAUW"
Thanks for all the great xtras! and for all the supercool competitions. I now have a yellow banner "Play On!" in my lego corner of the room. ( :thumbup:  :thumbup: Holodoc for the "Find the bricks - competition") Especially thanks to CM and Ras for getting cool stuff and adding that Viking smoothness to the Firefighter contest!

Build On!

EDIT: Oh yeah! Thanks TT for the raffle. (and Holodoc for trading prize) My daugther loves the tractor :sweet:

Well... all the eventees which werent there for the sunday only... But that was only me and I brought a friend of mine... You will see pics later...

But it was a really really great day and I enjoyed it though the travel to come there was double to my event :-P
I did go there by train and needed about 9 hours for each direction...but did not have to change trains and that was great :D

Hope you all had a great time. The weather was certainly fantastic in the park last weekend.

For some reason I had expected ye all to be wearing Eurobrick t-shirts or something to identify yourselves. From the photo the only person I recognise is Lasse D and that's because I was in the 'sales' market upon its opening at 3.00 on Saturday and there were a few people in there examining the slim pickings on offer. Given that the offerings were pretty miserable you guys must have cleared it out the day before. I didn't see too many large packs of lego fanatics roaming amongst the crowd although I did speak to some US fans that were not of Eurobricks origin but hadn't seen you guys either.

If you guys encountered someone with a cap and t-shirt with a Lego AT-AT on it then that was me!!! (On occasion I had an 8 year old boy and three year old girl hanging out of me!!)

As far as the park itself goes I managed to avoid a huge dent in my wallet as there were no new sets on offer that I didn't have already. I also had the added (and unexpected) bonus of free admission to the park for myself and family as it came with the room in Legoland hotel.

Ooh, you were there :oh:! I thought that signing up for the event would have ment that you either said you couldn´t come or asked for a meeting point.
I had prepared the extras for you also at a 50 euro expense.

Glad you had a great day.
