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!
If you get a chance to stop by the Lego store in Guildford Mall during the month of March, be sure to check out the Community Display Window. Fellow AbbyLUG member James and I are proud to present our Legends of Chima themed creation featuring the Croc and Lion tribes preparing to do battle. We had a lot of fun building it and I think it shows! Click the link below for pictures, and keep checking back every month at Guildford Lego Store for a new display.

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 🙂
