Newcastle Brickfest 2016

Last weekend was Newcastle Brickfest. I went to the first one in 2014, and pictures can be seen here. This was at the same location, but had been spread over two days, with ticketed entrance times and a resulting decrease in crowd crush. There was a variety of Lego on display, as well as a few members of the 501st Legion, Southern Cross Garrison.

Classic Space- still my favourite.

There were some cool X-Files vignettes:




Star Wars was again popular:




I really liked these Alice in Wonderland vignettes:




The Lego Group doesn't make military themed bits, but there are after-market weapons and helmets available to make dioramas like this one, or the war memorial in the town above:


It's a fun day, and proceeds go to a good cause. Yay, Lego!

  1. There is something that I still find hugely appealing about Lego, loved the X-Files vignettes.

    1. It's a great toy. There was a lot of hidden detail in the X-Files scenes.

  3. I'm with you: Space Lego has always been the best!
    But that Alice in Wonderland Lego... that's now a close contender.
