This weekend, Lego hobbyists present some of their best “builds” to the public at the 12th annual BrickCon in Seattle. While Saturday and Sunday are open to the public, Friday was set aside strictly for those that are most passionate about the iconic brick. Attending with my son, I had a chance to peek in on the activities on Friday as the builders assembled—or reassembled—their creations for public viewing. Some attendees came from quite a distance—New Zealand, Great Britain, and Germany were in the house, as were plenty of builders from the United States and Canada. Roughly 400 hobbyists brought creations to display.
There were plenty of geek-worthy entries—take a quick tour of some of the highlights with me.
