Sad to report IFCon Cancelled

For those who were looking forward to the IFCon event this weekend (October 31-November 1, 2015) at Pearkes please be advised the event has been cancelled.

We are deeply disappointed and had looked forward to a fantastic display featuring the Halls of both Justice and Doom and the “Battle of Bricktoria”. This feast of super-hero/comic-book/movie goodness will hopefully be incorporated into our Family Day event in Sidney next February.

For any further information on the cancellation you should seek answers @

Fundraiser for Dacian

Tillicum Lego Mania 2014

VicLUG was at Tillicum Lego Mania for the 5th year running, partnering with Robin Sather of Brickville this time to make the Gates of Harmonious Interest from China Town. The theme of this year’s event was ‘Old Victoria’ and the kids’ contest entries were just incredible.

The gates were designed by Robin and many VicLUG members helped with the building of the mosaics and rest of the structure. It was so complicated that the ‘resolution’ had to be lowered and it still ran a day over, easily the most complicated and ambitious creation seen at Lego Mania. A steel structure kept it sturdy and this time around there was a significant proportion more of Lego to Duplo ratio.

There was also a public build zone but as usual no pictures were taken. Imagine a massive zone filled with kids feeding from brick troughs.
