A rainy forecast for the weekend makes it primetime for indoor activities with the family! Come support VicLUG at a couple of events around town this weekend.
On Saturday and Sunday, VicLUG will be on display at the Ultimate Toy Fair, taking place at Pearkes Arena. Our display will be a spooky Halloween theme and there will also be a mystery live build! October is just around the corner and this is a great opportunity to get into the spirit (or summon the spirit?).
And on Sunday, VicLUG Train Engineers will be at the Victoria Model Railway Show being held at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney. This will be one of our larger displays of the year, with several loops of track, highlighting various LEGO train themes from over the years. There will be a retro-train loop with engines and rolling stock that are over 55 years old, some 9 volt layouts, the newer Power Functions sets and there will even be a rarely seen, but highly coveted monorail train cruising the rails. Plus so much more!
So grab Grandpa and the kids (Grandma can come too!) and come check out some LEGO this weekend with VicLUG.
Welcome AFOLS from around the world to BrickCan 2023, taking place in Richmond BC this weekend.
Some determined VicLUG members braved bad weather, ferry cancellations, long waits and eventually a bumpy ferry ride to attend this year. Come say ‘hi’ and see what we’ve built for this year’s convention.
VicLUG’s Castle and Keep display at Victoria’s Ultimate Hobby and Toy Fair successfully defended itself from being overrun by the skeleton army. Over 1000 skeleton minifigures attempted to storm the castle, assisted by trolls, dragons and a variety of other creatures. But the stalwart minifigure knights and soldiers held their ground and made it through the 48 hour siege.
VicLUG’s next display will be at Cherry Bomb Toys’ Ultimate Toy Fair on April 15 and 16, 2023. Come on down and see our castles display. As well, we will have the crowd favourite Great Ball Contraption (GBT) set up and rolling all weekend long. Looking forward to seeing you there!
It’s that time of the year again! Family Day Long Weekend is rolling up fast and here at VicLUG, we’ve been itching to unleash our latest out-of-this-world creations.
