Very awesome job EB and everyone else that displayed - it never ceases to amaze me the craziness that people think up of...

The motorization of the EB layout in particular was really well done, especially the chaining of a single motor!

Can't wait/already planning for next year!

Would have loved to get on this years group display. I was barely able to finish what I brought, and as it was it was still missing more than I wished. :/

Another awesome time at Brickworld. Great to hang out with everyone until the very wee hours of the morning. I am already looking forward to 2014!

Here are some early photos I took, mostly on Th-F.

Congratulations on your Best Large Building win! Well deserved. That is a beautiful building!

Brickworld was a wonderful experience, due in most part to the friendly AFOLs and families I met there. It was a joy fielding questions about the purpose of every nook & cranny in my models.

Winning best large building meant a lot to me, not to beat anyone else, but because upon seeing the red brick, my wife's eyes and nose turned pink (and she might have started shedding tears if I'd not immediately started teasing her)... Hers was the kind of the emotional reaction I'd hoped for, since, you know, it will help me continue to have Lego as a hobby and Brickworld as a vacation for the family.

I hope to see everyone back next year!

Thanks! I loved the Da Vinci Punk, too!

There is so much win on the roof of the stadium. It's all such a gorgeous rounded shape. I was immediately angry with myself for not stopping and saying hi this weekend when I saw that you had packed up.

Awesome! Congrats to all the winners, and congratulations to all who participated! :D I was there on last year's event and had a blast---I imagine this year's event had no shortage of fun!

Maybe I'll make it again next year :classic:

"Dome" was only said once in the whole video.

And I believe it was by Ecclesiastes. Those guys call themselves journalists? They forgot to ignore the MOC cards, and the builders clearly standing nearby, to just sum up the whole thing by one tiny feature and nod a little approval at it and move on. Sheesh, what kind of dog and pony show is this? They didn't even see "I think they've got some really nice techniques in there." And then they actually filmed the whole display and the movement to show what it was all about?? megablocks!!

Better watch your tone Mr. Hinckley, next thing you know they'll read your scathing critique and remove your posterboy status (literally):

Much better review of the build. Wish I would have had time to build something for it. :/
