ILUGNY’s New York City Skyline at BrickFair VA

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.

 

A different kind of Star Wars Christmas Special

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.

 

Back to the 80’s with I LUG NY at the Queens LEGO Store

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?

The store staff and management especially, loved this window! When you stop by the Queens LEGO Store be sure to check this display out.IMG_2862 IMG_2863 IMG_2860

[Queens] Mountain Retreat – September 2014

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.

 

This will be on display through early/mid October. Check it out in person and when you do tell them I LUG NY sent you!IMG_9536
