Join ILUGNY and the Friends of the Larchmont Public Library for the second annual Larchmont Brickfest.
Here’s a small sampling of last year’s display:
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
We had an excellent turnout of seven LUG members come to support Xavier and the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester Adult Night last Thursday night. Will and I brought miscellaneous MOCs for our table, including some new stuff never seen before! Continue reading
Just in time for The LEGO Movie’s opening weekend, on February 7th – ILUGNY installed some LEGO Movie themed mosaics and MOC’s at the Queens LEGO Store.
First up, Brian “notenoughbricks” and Bill “Murphquake” put together some awesome mosaics of Emmett and WyldStyle (respectively) based on the movie posters.
In addition to the mosaics, Will “smart_as_a_brick” threw in some assorted space-y elements.
In case you can’t tell – I’m fairly excited for the second wave where we’ll finally get Benny and his Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!
Plans for the Abe’s Space Chair, the Pico-Manager and the other little space bits will be available from my flickr stream later this week. While you’re sitting around waiting for the movie to be released at midnight tonight – you can also check out some of the trailers and promos:
Don’t forget! The LEGOLAND Discovery Center Westchester in Yonkers, NY is having its first Adult night of 2014 this Thursday, February 6th at 7pm. This is also the first time our good friend and LUG mate Xavier will be running it as the master model builder! Hope to see you there!

This past Saturday and Sunday at the Stamford Museum & Nature Center was a b-cause CT Block Party event. There was a good crowd both days and people seemed to really enjoy the experience.

The b-Cause Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate children to recognize neighbors in need in the local community. Block Party events serve as fundraisers. Continue reading
