20th Annual Mount Cheam Lions Train Show

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.

Fort Legoredo

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!

17th Annual Mount Cheam Lions Train Show

AbbyLUG & VLCThis was the second year of AbbyLUG participation at the long-running Train and Hobby show benefiting the Mount Cheam Lions. We had as much fun as last year getting our displays ready for the viewing public.

Custom ModularsIMG_1074Instead of going strictly in a Lego City direction we branched out to showcase some of our members’ most passionate themes. Castle, Space, Post-apoc, and Christmas Village sections were full of detailed custom models and sets.ArkhamPost-apocManor HouseClassic M-TronChristmas VillageThe two day event attracted thousands of attendees, both young and old and we had a great time talking about our hobby and answering questions. It seems that people are always amazed at the shape Lego bricks can take in the hands of a dedicated builder.Riders of.. the white hand?Who ya gonna call!?Last Minute?Especially popular was the Mad Max section built by our member Lee. Those old enough to recall the movie enjoyed picking out the various details added to the vehicles and characters.So much orange!Well dang!MaxSmaug made a special appearance atop one of the castle keeps, an early glimpse at the famed dragon from the new Hobbit sets.

Smaug the TerribleAnd all in all we had a great time. We will be back next year!
