We are going to be at Lantasy next weekend! Mar 12-13 at Pearkes Arena
For those who were looking forward to the IFCon event this weekend (October 31-November 1, 2015) at Pearkes please be advised the event has been cancelled.
We are deeply disappointed and had looked forward to a fantastic display featuring the Halls of both Justice and Doom and the “Battle of Bricktoria”. This feast of super-hero/comic-book/movie goodness will hopefully be incorporated into our Family Day event in Sidney next February.
For any further information on the cancellation you should seek answers @ ifconvictoria.com/.
We are having a meeting at The Moon under Water ( Moon Brewery & Pub, 350b Bay St) on Monday, the 21st of September 2015, at 7 PM.
All are welcome to attend, this is a public meeting and not a show, though there may be the odd bit of show and tell going on, along with frivolity and laughter.
Here are some pictures of VicLUG’s display at the Westshore train show:

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!
See all the creations and winners here:
VicLUG had a moc display as well as the popular Where’s Waldo minifig search.
Check out the rest of the mocs here:
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.
Here are the previous year’s big Duplo builds
