  1. King Mathias and His Royal Guard by Mohamed Marei, on Flickr "At long last, His Majesty is crowned! Long may He reign!" Initially built as a spiritual continuation of the Knights Kingdom 2018 collab, this build has now been assimilated into my UK 2022 convention lineup. My display was called: CCBS Kingdom Figures. The build started off with a janky looking prototype of King Mathias, where the challenge was to sort out the appearance of the shoulders. Once I had the concept figured out, I trialled several iterations before I was happy with the end result. The throne draft came together thanks to a spontaneous handful of visits to my local PAB wall and some yet-to-be-sorted BL orders. It was left at 70% done in early 2021, when I first posted an earlier version of this design. Then in 2022, in the week before my first UK Brick Festival (May 2022), I hashed out the Royal Guards, which I aimed to keep simple yet detailed. Finally, the base, initially coming together during one of the slower events I was displaying at, was used to incorporate the entire build. Again, another spontaneous PAB wall visit was the source of all the white tiles I came to possess. Overall I am quite happy with the end result, and will be taking this along to some more 2023 shows before retiring it for next year, but not before I've changed things up a bit with my new display (currently in the works). I would send it along to the US convention circuit but I don't think it's too feasible for me right now. Here's a link to an Instagram Reel to show you a full 360 view!

    Anyone been to Brickfest?

    Just curious if anyone has been to the Brickfest events in the U.S. They had one in Philadelphia a few weeks ago, and just had one north of Baltimore last weekend. I took my daughter, and it was OK, though perhaps not as good as the Virginia Brickfair a few weeks ago. Highlights from what I can remember: - 9 holes of miniature golf. These were simple small golf courses made from lumber, but the borders were decorated with Lego elements. Play was free with admission. - A large display of various ships--mostly freighters and battleships--made from Lego. My impression was that a local LUG had done these, but I'm not sure since we didn't get a good look at them. - An area where kids could sit and make Lego mosaics. (I don't think you could keep them.) - A number of vendors from the east coast/Mid-Atlantic area. I grabbed some polybags that I've been having trouble finding, and we grabbed some interesting elements from some Pick-a-Brick stands. (Sadly, we ended up with a few clone brand pieces, but most of what we got was legit.) - Some city displays where kids could build and add their contributions. - A stage where they did Lego trivia. I didn't get to attend this part, so I don't know if they gave out prizes or anything. - A section where kids could build race cars and then race them down a ramp. Again, we never made it to this part, and it had a long line. - A wall covered with Lego plates which kids could decorate. - A video game section where kids could play games such as the Lego Movie Videogame or Marvel Superheroes. This section was, of course, very popular. So, the event was OK, though maybe a little overpriced at $22 per ticket. (I think Brickfest VA was $12 and was probably the same level of event.) I think the kids had fun, though an AFOL might not if you were planning to do anything other than shop. One complaint I have is that the Brickfest merchandise was rather overpriced. They mostly had t-shirts and minifigures decorated with the Brickfest logo. I would have bought a minifig just for the heck of it, but it was priced at $10. At $5, I would have gotten one, but $10 is pretty steep for a traveling festival's logo on a generic figure.
