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.
Good news! AbbyLUG isn’t dead! Just the website, but I’m fixing to change that and I’m starting off with last years (2017) Train and Hobby Show at Heritage Park in Chilliwack.
For this years theme we picked “Future City” and divided our display into four sub-genres that theme covers; Utopian City, Dystopian City, Post-Apocalyptic, and Recovering Post-Apocalyptic
The main city was absolutely packed!
This T:RON display really stood out.
Each section was divided with borders, some more heavily guarded than others.
The Post-Apocalyptic section had quite a wide variety of scenes ranging from an abandoned city and theme park to a Mad Max convoy.
The Recovering Post-Apocalyptic section included a sizable castle occupied by Star Wars minfigures, and a nifty fort made from salvaged parts like a camper trailer.
Even after the apocalypse the VW minibus lives on.
Be sure to come see our display next year when we’re planning on going the opposite direction with a 1950’s theme!
