LEGO resume

This is an older story from during my blogging hiatus, but this summer a woman built a miniland resume to stand out from the stack of other applicants.

Two of them?

I must admit I am pretty ignorant of the new Doctor Who series (to me the Doctor will always be Tom Baker), but if you run around time long enough, you're going to run into yourself eventually, as in Two of them? by Dan.

1984 redux

Hi all,
First up, I just wanted to apologize for my six month hiatus. I've been blogging about LEGO for nine years now, and from time to time I've just gotten a bit run down and distracted from my family of blogs. However, in the meantime, I'm constantly going through Flickr, Brickshelf, and other sites, and probably every day I bookmark a few more things that I keep meaning to post. I've gotten a couple of nice notes asking where I've been, and I guess it's time to come back. Also, during the year I save up LEGO books to review as people are getting ready for Christmas, and want to get those posted. And so, back to blogging. Hopefully I won't have too many interruptions in the near future. I've certainly got a backlog of great creations to feature.

Build that Pokemon designed Meeting the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz.

Starting things off with a bang, or a hammer to the screen more like, Jason Alleman reimagined the original Macintosh commercial.

Mini LEGO Con

At a couple of recent AFOL events Steve Oakes and Mariann Asanuma displayed a miniland scale con, full of minilanders displaying microscale MOCs, sometimes renditions of actual MOCs that had appeared at previous cons. Now Todd Webb and Dan Pikora (of Fascinating LEGO of the Day) have expanded on that idea. At the various BrickFairs (and other AFOL gatherings), they are setting up miniland-scale layouts of the entire convention layout. Attendees are invited to bring miniland scale versions of themselves and microscale versions of their MOCs, to recreate the whole convention at a smaller scale. There's a Flickr group to share photos and help coordinate future events. Here's part of the layout from BrickFair Alabama. They're hoping to make much more complete displays at upcoming cons. So if you're attending BrickFair NE this weekend, try and put together a minilander of yourself to add to the display.
