So GFLUG and myself has been busy getting ready for Star Wars Celebration VI coming up Aug. 23-26 here in Orlando, FL. It was a lot of fun last time around, this year is proving to be just as exciting to see what people will build and bring to the event.
One of the ideas I had this time around was to combine the Minifigure Presentation Boxes with Han in Carbonite — to create a play on the Darth Vader figure storage case I had as a kid. I’m also working on a light-up Mustafar display again (slightly larger). And I’m thinking about building a Wookie tree house from the Star Wars Christmas special, including a Santa Yoda. 🙂
In other news, I got a call from Legoland FL about doing an AFOL event at Legoland, come fall time. We’re calling it BrickHaven; a play on the town Legoland, FL is located in (Winter Haven). Looking at dates, the best one I could come up with is the weekend of Nov. 3 & 4 — it’s short notice, but it’s the weekend after Brick-or-Treat and the weekend before Festival of the Masters — so if anyone is looking for an excuse to take a vacation for a week, that would be a fun filled LEGO week.
Keep an eye on the web-site for updates, I’ll be posting them there. I’ve set up a Facebook Group if anyone is interested. Right now I’m looking for support and feedback, so e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
