Around The Sound – Brick Con

Around The Sound – Brick Con

Every October at the Seattle Center, LEGO® hobbyists (what you call anyone old enough to drive who still loves their LEGO®) converge at Brick Con. This year marks its 10th anniversary as the longest running fan-based LEGO® convention.

It’s a family friendly event where the general public is invited in to be amazed, observe amazing LEGO® creations and meet the builders. If you have LEGO® enthusiasts in your home, as I do with my boys, it is a must-see. We went last year and will be there this year.

You will see a few people dressed up…

…and amazing creations completely out of LEGO® like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts…

…and the Quidditch pitch.

Fantastical castles…

…even a Tower or two.

Yes, it is Saruman’s Fortress from Lord Of The Rings. This is one of my favorite scenes from The Two Towers when the Ents have had enough and start handing out a*%kickings and lollipops and are all out of lollipops.

You can purchase hard to find LEGO® sets and custom items you aren’t going to find at the LEGO® store…

It’s the only place that Pooh and a Predator can exist in the same space.

And how often does one see a Storm Trooper crossing the street?

We had an awesome time! There is so much to see, I simply can’t contain all the photos I took in a post.
