Northern Bricks 2016

Northern bricks was a blast this year with a full four days of LEGO goodness. From parts drafts, to competitions and the everstressful period of setup, we had a great time participating this year and bringing about an even larger layout than last time. From trains to sci-fi, technic or castle the show had something for everyone. It also featured a number of new, impressive creations including a massive A6 Juggernaut from starwars and an incredible Minecraft display. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to admire the displays and participate in the EEk! comic and pop culture fest along with Northern Bricks. We hope to be back next year

    Northern Bricks 2015

    Well the craziness is over, the frantic hours of setup and teardown are passed, the crowds of people were more than pleased and all in all we had a blast! All of the members of NALUG pulled together to bring about the first lego convention in Western Canada full of games, crazy creations and much more. Throughout the weekend, we had the opportunity to participate and help run many activities such as blind builds, speed builds and purely creative ones. A big shoutout to Eric Mcallum who took the time to cooridnate all of the games and activities as well as bring down some huge Lego statues - they were awesome! We also had the chance to welcome a few members of SLUG (Saskatchewan Lego Users Group) who were all great guys to hang out with and had some serious lego skills to boot. As for displays, ther ewas everything from castle, to trains to space and steampunk and mosaics that were impressive all around. Check out the pictures below and make sure to visit our gallery for more (with more photos still to come)!

  • EEK!

    This year, NALUG was excited to have the chance to run a display at EEK! Comic and Pop Culture Expo in St. Albert. Whether it be roaming    2372042 through the many booths at the expo or manning our own display, we all had a lot of fun. For our part, we created a display consisting of many themes such as Space, Star wars, Pirates, Town and others. One of the big hits from the dispay was Lazlo's "Where's Waldo" display, which kept many guests occupied as they looked for the one minifigure out of thousands that didn't match! there was also tons of people dressed in cool costumes that we got to meet and take pictures with. All in all, it was a great experience and we hope to be back next year.
