BrickFair Virginia was a great opportunity for ILUGNY to show off our “8x” NYC Skyline. Watch our interview with Matt Kay of Beyond the Brick and then stick around to watch us assemble the skyline (for the third time).
We discovered when we set the skyline up initially that it was heavy enough to curve the table, and make the tops of the buildings noticeably closer. So, this is the third attempt, with a giant (improvised) wooden base under the whole thing.

Nearly every month LLDC (www.LegoLandDiscoveryCenter.com) has an AFOL night (Adult Fans Of LEGO, 18+) who reminisce about and/or actively enjoy LEGO. And ILUGNY, a LEGO User Group in the tri-state area, has members who actively enjoy LEGO and who attend these events to meet like-talented adults to share our passion and to participate in the activities. NOTE: Adults NOT bringing child to LLDC are only allowed to go during an Adult Night, which is good because that’s when it’s an adult-friendly atmosphere!
This event was August’s music-themed event… “Rock Star” Adult Night.
Be sure to tune in to the Steve Harvey Show this Thursday to see a special appearance by I LUG NY member Cody Wells! Based on the promo stills, it looks like it’ll be a fun segment. Steve Harvey looks thrilled to have a brick-built replica of his own head. I wonder if it’s hollow so he can wear it like a helmet. Or maybe it shoots flick-fire missiles out of the mouth.
