Several I LUG NY members have nautical-themed MOCs on display this weekend at the Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk, CT. Check it out if you’re in the area!
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.
ILUGNY members Kurt, Jason, Will and Brian W installed this Micropolis scene last night in the LEGO Store at the Queens Center Mall. The scene is complimented by a Mixels Chameleozilla rampaging or frolicking through town, I can’t decide -he’s too cute! Continue reading Micropolis 2015 on Display at Queens LEGO Store

Last Friday ILUGNY descended on the Queens LEGO store to install our Holiday themed window.
We had a great time putting this all together – lots of last minute tweaks and alterations.
It was the first window swap for a couple of our new members, Kurt and Jason. Both of whom provided some really excellent looking gift boxes.
Of course, Benny seems perfectly happy with his Christmas present – a properly colored X-Wing SPACESHIP!
I think it turned out great – way better than the actual Star Wars Christmas Special – but if you’re in the area, you should drop by the LEGO store in the Queens Center Mall and check it out yourself.
I LUG NY members Cody, Murphy and I met up at the Queens LEGO Store to swap out a Halloween model for a model reflective of growing up in the 1980’s. Models from this LUG Showcase include Cody’s K.I.T.T. from Knight Rider, the General Lee from the Dukes of Hazard as well as another icon of the 80’s, MTV. Remember when they truly were a music television channel?
Happy Halloween from all of us at I LUG NY!
This month’s window was installed by Bill Murphy with help from Brian Wygand & Cody Wells. As we approach Halloween we’re all excited about trick or treating but so are our alien friends.
I LUG NY members installed September’s LUG Showcase model which is a collaboration between LUG members. The model depicts a lone mountain cabin nestled in between rock formations and two fall colored trees. There are many animals making their homes in this scene above ground, on the mountain cliff, on the ground and in the pond.
The August display at Queens is a tribute to Ghostbusters and Back to the Future, with a hint of Ninja Turtles. They’ve been mixed together just like LEGO intended.
