The Incredible Steampunk/Pirate Land Diorama

Over the weekend, the munchkin and I were lucky enough to attend Brick 2014 at London’s Excel Centre. It was the biggest Lego show the UK has seen, running for four days and attracting thousands of Lego fans of all ages. There was so much stuff to see that it would take me ages to write it all up, so I’m going to let the photos do the talking for me. Suffice to say that if you love Lego and ever get the chance to go to a similar convention, I heartily recommend it! Highlights for us included:

  • Joining in with the World Record attempt for the largest Lego video game diorama – they opened up loads of the new Minecraft sets and let everyone go crazy building houses, towers, giant creepers, mines and cart tracks. The results were very impressive and certainly got everyone hooked on it – the on-site Toys R Us had almost totally sold out by the end of the day.
  • The videogame area was full of PS4s and Xboxes running the new LEGO Batman 3 game, as well as the older Marvel and Harry Potter ones. Beyond Gotham looks like a great successor to the Lego Movie game, which we had some much fun playing together recently.
