Today I went back to the venue of Crisis last week, but this time for that other passion of mine, and by extension my following: BrickMania, the convention organised by BeLug, a club for LEGO fans in Belgium and of which I`m a member out of sympathy for the hobby.
Bit like TSA these days kind off I guess...
Tagging along today where my beloved Chu, and the minions in training: Humpty, Dumpty and The Smurf. I really love the happy faces on the little guys faces, makes me feel good in my role as `The Cool Uncle`
Arriving around 11, there was a nice crowd queuing for the second day of the event, but the line progressed smoothly.
The Hall, this time only hall 1 in use where Crisis last week had 1.5 halls, was nicely filled with enthousiasts ranging between all ages.
The `main attraction` was a humongous colonial naval battle, including a lot of great details... if you looked at it closer. The good thing about Lego is like with wargames, you get a mighty `wow` effect, but usually also a heap of small details and vignettes if you look closer.
Another great set of mozaics present
All kinds of motorized devices
A very cool ghost house with lot`s of things going on, including the chase of an alien
One day, one day...
Which brings us to... THE LOOT
I haven`t spend my whole budget, as the Pharaoh`s Quest pyramid was not on sale at the fair. I did find one of the three sets though i really wanted, the Oriental Adventures ship. Furthermore I found another Prince of Persia set (they keep dropping and dropping in price), an old Lego System tribal chief set, and finally the Kingdoms Jester set.
Not a bad haul indeed.
The Smurf hauled home a Harry Potter promo set, 4 bags of Series 4 and 3 bags of Series 3 minifigures, and the Hogwarts Express train set.
Humpty went home with a Marvel set and an old ExoForce set, and finally Dumpty carried along the Monster Fighters Werewolf, as well as two sets of DC superheroes.
I think the little ones had a great midday, and many a brick will be lingering on tables the comming days. I definitly had fun.
And thanks Chy for the chapperoning, much appreciated and love you xxx
