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 “Lights, Camera, Action” Recap, and Last Week for A Billion Bricks!

The LEGO Movie Mosaics

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.

Queens LBR Feb 2014 Minifig Detail
The minifig and smaller scale elements: Honest Abe Bugging out on his “Space Chair”, Benny being generally excited about Space (as he should be), a Micro Micro-Manager (technically a Pico-Manager?) , some robots from the upcoming Spaceship set, and a really small spaceship!

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:
