LEGO House Tour from Beyond the Brick

LEGO House

After four long years of planning and construction, the LEGO House has officially opened in Billund but last week over 600 AFOLs had a chance to visit before the ceremonial opening yesterday. One of these AFOLs who was able to attend was Joshua Hanlon from Beyond the Brick and they have released a new video giving us a thorough tour of what to expect at the LEGO House. If you aren’t going to Denmark anytime soon, this video is a great way to check out LEGO’s newest attraction without leaving your home.


Help Beyond the Brick Get to BrickLive Birmingham

Our friends over at Beyond the Brick, who have just hit 100,000 subscribers, who are known for filming various LEGO conventions across the US and interviewing members of the LEGO community.

For one of their future projects, they’re looking to expand their coverage and attend BrickLive Birmingham in the UK at the end of October. They’re currently running a KickStarter to fund their trip overseas to film one of the largest LEGO conventions on the other side of the Atlantic.

For some of the KickStarter rewards, they’ve enlisted some builders in the community to create LEGO builds as part of the reward for certain pledge levels such as John Matz, Chris McVeigh, and Tyler Clites, just to name a few. This will be on top of the DVD you’ll be receiving of the show which won’t be posted to their YouTube channel.

They have about 24 left on the KickStarter as of this writing and they’ve already gathered a quarter of the goal so they’re off to a great start. Let’s keep it up and get Beyond the Brick to the UK.

If you haven’t seen it yet, their coverage of BrickWorld Chicago 2015 and BrickFair Virginia 2015 were top notch as usual and they hope BrickCon 2015 will be the same or better.

They’ve set up a Kickstarter with some cool pledge rewards including a digital copy of the BrickCon 2015 DVD at the $15 level and up, custom Smurf minifigures, and custom builds. Plus there are some stretch goals if they make it past their original goal.
