VicLUG was at Tillicum Lego Mania for the 5th year running, partnering with Robin Sather of Brickville this time to make the Gates of Harmonious Interest from China Town. The theme of this year’s event was ‘Old Victoria’ and the kids’ contest entries were just incredible.
The gates were designed by Robin and many VicLUG members helped with the building of the mosaics and rest of the structure. It was so complicated that the ‘resolution’ had to be lowered and it still ran a day over, easily the most complicated and ambitious creation seen at Lego Mania. A steel structure kept it sturdy and this time around there was a significant proportion more of Lego to Duplo ratio.
These are just a few of the pictures, see more of the building process here:
The kids contest had a wonderful turnout and really well crafted creations!

VicLUG had a moc display as well as the popular Where’s Waldo minifig search.

There was also a public build zone but as usual no pictures were taken. Imagine a massive zone filled with kids feeding from brick troughs.
