Several I LUG NY members were interviewed down at Brickfair Virginia last August for a documentary looking at LEGO and AFOLs. Turns out it’s coming out soon. It’s called “Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary” and is narrated by Arrested Devolpment’s Jason Bateman. A new clip popped up yesterday featuring some of that footage!
Join ILUGNY and the fine folks from http://lyndhurst.org/ for a day (or two) of LEGO-related Fun from 10am to 4pm on Saturday April 26th and Sunday April 27th.
Tickets are $9 for Adults & $7 for kids.
Alex (Kooberz Studios) posted his video coverage of our Larchmont show that took place over the last two weekends. Check it out!
Only two more days to come and see ILUGNY at the Larchmont Public Library’s community center.
Check out this video for a preview of what you’re missing:
We’re hard at work setting up for the our next show, opening at the Larchmont Public Library on March 29th.
On Tuesday, March 4th, I LUG NY members installed their latest LEGO Movie creations in the LEGO Store at the Queens Center Mall. I LUG NY members Bert, Brian, Cody, Murphy, Rick and Will met up at the mall for dinner at Applebee’s to celebrate Rick’s birthday! The staff at Applebee’s serenaded Rick and shortly after he finished his ice cream we headed over to the LEGO Store to swap out models for the LUG Showcase. We were treated fantastically and the models were received positively as they tie in with the run away hit movie.
The window features Micro Managers built by Brian (MM on roof of far right building), Rick (MM gluing minifig on street), Will (tall bipedal MM on right), and Murph (all other MM). Will built the MILSified street and Rick built the I LUG NY Logo LUG Showcase Stand. The backdrop of the scene is comprised of 4 modular buildings built by Brian that are either inspired by the official LEGO set #10218, “Pet Shop” or buildings in the real world.
These models will be on display through March of 2014 so stop by the Queens LEGO Store to check them out!
If you haven’t been out to see A Billion Bricks (or you want to see it again), hurry! This is the last weekend. This weekend is also the Maple Sugar Festival at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. What’s better than LEGO covered in maple syrup?
Actually, that’s a terrible idea. Please keep the syrup away from our display if you go.
On Saturday February 22nd, I LUG NY conducted our first-ever stop-motion animation workshop at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center. The event sold out well ahead of time, and we got around 50 kids and parents attending. This was the last of our three special events. The Billion Bricks Exhibition ends March 2nd, so be sure to get out and see it before it’s over! Continue reading
The Billion Bricks exhibition at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center has been made even more awesome! The layout is now packed with stuff from the LEGO Movie. The museum will also going to be blasting Everything is Awesome on repeat for the remainder of the display! (Not really.) Continue reading
