The above pics are some of my favorite pieces here. Such a good capturing of childhood imagination of fantasy, Zelda meets Enid blyton meets Tolkien and More

I can see how being in Alabama Lego would be the fucking shit. That is a bigoted opinion tho, since the internet

Last post's photos were the best for me. My nerd ass is always into the space shit, and the trojan horse/palaces are  fucking insane.

This windmill is also insane, modern vertical axis turbine design thrown in for fun.

For the lighted contest these guys did a blacklight oriented build, hard to flic obviously but this was pretty fucking cool.

I'll take more today, but that gives you an idea of what happens at these things. This is a medium sized event as well, but still hundreds of lonely nerds amassed these builds.

 

Also, I'll reply more later, but nostalgia is absolutely nuts. I recently got an Xmas catalog from sears from like 1994--holy fuck is that a trip to look through.

Ended up at the bars with this builder last night.  this dude is actually just a fucking genius all around. Was refreshing to not be hanging out with high functioning autistic folks that are just mad awkward.

I never really got into it as a kid but enjoyed putting them together with my child, I took him to two lego conventions at the Seattle center.  The first one was super cool with original inspiring works and good shit for kids and everything, the second one only a year later was a major let down with all this starwars shit and people mainly selling figurines and what not, I do not know how the organizers managed to produce two totally different events in such a short span.

 

Looks like a good event, thanks for sharing. That military stuff is all custom by the nerds right? If I recall lego did no guns but it sure seemed like they were considering a different direction with the starwars designs.

@mortonYes, all military is full custom, other than og sets everything ive posted is. But the weapons are 3rd party. Brick arms (company name) produces most of the weaponry and uniform details that make the war stuff "era correct."

Similar question... how much of these are Lego builds vs how many of these are custom painted and such.  I assume people make their own parts out of other Lego, oor do people make some of their own Lego parts?  Maybe that would disqualify it from being Lego?  Thanks for sharing.  Still feel like @Ko SprueOnewould dig.

There were lots of women at the events I went to so I was concerned that my joke about seeing five in one of your pictures would fall flat, but then I noticed that one looks to be a mannequin, which makes the joke fair play I think.

@One Man BannedThere are a lot of companies putting out custom pieces these days, different colored foliage is a big market for that. And then printing/chroming is another market. But other than minifigure accessories (weapons, helmets, packs, etc) and some (not all, lego does produce a lot)  foliage is say 95%+ is lego produced brick. 

 

Custom printed minifigures is another huge market. Look up citizen brick, they make cool stuff.

There aren't too many women participants, but probably more than you think... There are a couple in my club and it's pretty funny to watch the basement dwelling nerds try to interact with them.

 

Attractive women are virtually nonexistent, however, though I'm hoping for a high volume of hot moms today

Photo-documentation would be in line with established 12oz norms and mores, but pretty creepy in the over societal context.

Current update, we've been open for 30 minutes and Alabama moms look a whole lot like you'd expect them to. (Fat, methy, or some odd mix between the two).

 

Rooolllll tide. 

 

Oof.

Also, eating disorder and teenage moms are representing a fair share I shouldn't ignore.
