Another year, another Antwerp Convention... but my first year as a participant instead of a visitor.
Joining the BeLUG team on their first venture at the convention, I left early.. very early (we where there at 5.30... only to be allowed in at 6.15, and after some mishmashes with tables we could set up at 7...) for a day of displaying Lego builds.
My moderate contribution, as I took along both Lord of the Rings plates, as well as the Civil War vignette and a new one I finished just the evening before. I`ll feature that one in it`s own moment de gloire one of these days.
Now, with over 10.000 attendees, it was a very busy affair, and I was glad we where in the entrance hall instead of the overcrowded main halls.
The usual mixture of the convention was present, with a heap of traders
... very cool cosplayers...
The wrestling ring was present as well.
And at 19.00 we where packing up again and going off after a very, very exhausting day! next year again for sure... but with an hour more of sleep at least.
Believe it or not... NOTHING!
Okay, I did get two MASK vehicles that need a piece to be added left or right, and a complete StarCom figure, but these where from trades made before with Danny and it was just handier to bring them along to the convention. But I didn`t buy a single (non-food) thing at all all day.
I DID get another brick though for my badge...
... and an invitation to go to Starcom, a new convention in Ghent, the 5th of July with BeLUG. And unless something serious comes along, I`m going there.
