Last night I LUG NY made its first official appearance at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Yonkers, NY during its monthly “No-Kids Night.” October was Star Wars-themed. A dozen members of the LUG showed up, and we got to meet other AFOLs in the area who made it to the event. Several business cards were handed out and we may have even recruited a new member or two.
We had a display table with Star Wars MOCs by Bill M, Brett, Cody, Mike, and Rick. Most of the custom models were publicly displayed for the first time!

Yesterday Cody dropped off this beautiful MOC titled “Beetlejuice Halloween” and what a great model to transition into the month of October! On the top floor is a graveyard/cemetary with a purist custom rendtion of Mr. Juice himself beckoning from behind the iron gates. The use of the palm tree base element is a great way to support the flying witch on her broom. Below ground is a room showing various LEGO Monsters and to the left of that is a Skeleton Hallway and to the right a sewer drain with blood flowing towards the viewer.
Check out this model in person at the Rockefeller Center LEGO Store through the end of the month.
