Returning for its third year in 2018, BrickCan is the largest public exhibition of LEGO® creations ever held in British Columbia – and it all happens again this coming April 21-22, 2018! BrickCan also hosts Canada’s largest Adult LEGO® Fan Convention.
The Adult Fan of LEGO Convention is a four day event, taking place at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, created by local Adult Fans of LEGO, or “AFOLs” for short. Hundreds of LEGO builders from around the world will travel to Vancouver, bringing with them amazing models that they have spent countless hours designing and building. These AFOLs will set up and stage their creations, showcasing a fantastic display of hundreds of incredible models for both attendees and the general public to marvel at.
For More details about the fan convention or to purchase tickets to the public exhibition please visit the Brick Can site.
Calling all Lego space fanatics – if you didn’t have the opportunity to check out AbbyLUG’s tribute to Lego space through the decades, now is your chance! See if you can name all of the Lego space themes represented here.
If you like this build, look for an even bigger and better space display from AbbyLUG at the Chilliwack Train and Hobby Show coming up in October!
This was our first year being involved in the BC Homeschool Expo at Tradex in Abbotsford, and it was a great success! We enjoyed being a big part of the Fun Zone, providing kids an opportunity to build Lego creations of their own, as well as displaying many of our own creations and favourite official Lego models. From my informal polling, fan favourites included a Lego Snoopy house by Christian, complete with a brick built Snoopy and Woodstock, a modified Lord of the Rings Pirate Ship Ambush by Adele, and a fabulous Castle MOC by James.

The kids really got into the Lego spirit with some impressive teamwork in the Duplo area as well as many creative solo projects at the Lego System free build tables. Thanks to all the participants for their enthusiasm and we hope to see you all again next year!
The Lego Movie is out in theatres today, and yesterday I had the privilege of representing AbbyLUG on Breakfast TV in Vancouver to talk about the Lego Movie and the joys of being an Adult Fan of Lego! I was in the distinguished company of Lego Certified Professional Robin Sather and Paul Hetherington, AKA The Brick Baron. We had a great time showcasing our creations!
Make sure to get out and see the Lego Movie – there is plenty for Lego enthusiasts of all stripes to enjoy, particularly all the shout outs to the AFOL community. Enjoy 🙂
