All the FUN had at Sunshine Coast Brick Event 2017!

Roll up! Roll up! The show’s in town! For the 4th year in a row, Queensland LEGO User Group members tripped to the Sunshine Coast with their AWESOME displays to set up a fabulous high quality LEGO Fan Show for the locals. For some of our lovely AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) that create and share their displays, this is our 5th year of doing shows together as a group and a lot of long lasting friendships have been formed.

This years Sunshine Coast Brick Event was exceptionally high quality with wall to wall MOC (My own creation) goodness! There was the always epic Harry Potter display, with lots of new additions like moving scenes and always more detail. Check out this guided tour by its creator and be sure to book tickets to the GOLD COAST BRICK EVENT to see it up close and personal in September.

The all new Scaryborough, a halloween/monsters scary creation of awesomeness made its first debut. I’ve never seen quite so many scary looking scenes in one diorama before and it was AWESOME!

Some displays took advantage of the less-than-bright, massively-variable lighting in the Aussie World “The Shed” venue and added extra lighting to their displays.

More than a couple displays were expanded or completely changed, with Minecraft gaining a whole new overworld and the medieval/castle/dragons themed creation gaining a third table and room for some epic battles! You could spend hours looking at all the displays and still find new little details you never noticed the first time.

To all our fabulous members that displayed, thanks for making this a really fun show! We also shared a live video on the QLUG facebook group and a lot of lovely members made the trip to come support our exhibitors because they could see we were all having a great time :)

This is Aaron, he was a technical advisor for this awesome microscale airport. SWOOSH!

To the guys from Brick Events that host and event manage all the major shows that Queensland LEGO User Group attends formally each year, thank you for all your hard work! I know that organising a new venue this year was challenging, to say the least and you guys take all the stress so our exhibitors can just walk in, set up and know it’s going to be a good experience. Keep up the good work! Your shows have helped nuture some exceptionally great LEGO building talent in our wonderful state of Queensland <3 Check out the album of all the awesome show goodness here      

Sunshine Coast Brick Event 2017

The Sunshine Coast Brick Event

When I first walked into the venue of the Sunshine Coast Brick Event, weeks before the show was to begin, I was in AWE of the size of the space. The lighting was like broad daylight.

I arrived on friday night for setup and I’ve never seen our Lego look so impressive!

We left late that night, the hall full of impressive displays. Some have been developing over the past shows to become more detailed and others were displayed for the very first time.
The morning of March 1st 2014 we somewhat surprised as the line up of visitors started to snake around the corner waiting and we had to open the doors early. The Sunshine Coast locals were wonderfully polite and appreciative, some thanking exhibitors for coming along.

 

We had visits from the Sunshine Coast Daily , Sunny Coast Kids, who made a video and the local Channel 7 News. The local Lifesavers group and Kawana Scouts did a great job catering food and drinks for the event.

We experienced the largest crowds we have ever had at a show, with 8000 people through the doors by closing time on Sunday night. The exhibitors and organisers did an epic job at making this all possible.
