Philly Brick Fest 2014 LEGO Event Kit Ben’s Discovery (PBF001) Review

Philly Brick Fest 2014 Ben's Discovery (PBF001)

Today was the first day of AFOL & Exhibitor registration for Philly Brick Fest 2014 and inside my goodie bag was an exclusive LEGO event kit for particular registrants, Ben’s Discovery (PBF001). This minifigure is one of Philadelphia’s finest residents and his work in proving that lightning is electricity, Benjamin Franklin.

He is created from Bilbo Baggins’ torso and Shakespeare’s hair piece. There is also his kite and the key that is attached to the string. He is housed in a clear standard baseball card case. Overall, Ben Franklin is a pretty cool and exclusive minifigure to add to my LEGO collection.

Philly Brick Fest 2014 in the Works

Philly Brick Fest 2014

In any given year, there are several LEGO conventions that take place in the United States. BrickFair, BrickCon, Brick Fiesta, Bricks Cascade, Bricks by the Bay, and the just completed Brickworld in Chicago are some of the better known conventions in the country. One of the main reasons why these conventions exist is to provide a platform for LEGO builders and artists to show off their own creations. It also allows fans of LEGO to gather at a single place to discuss the hobby and to meet new people.

The county’s East Coast is home to BrickFair VA, located just outside the nation’s capital, Washington DC, and BrickFair NE which took place in Manchester, NH about an hour north of Boston, MA. This brings us to Philadelphia, the second largest city on East Coast and the fifth most populated city in the U.S. The City of Brotherly Love has everything you could possibly want in a big city including famous landmarks, sports teams, and iconic cuisine. The one attraction Philadelphia has been without is a major LEGO convention…. until now! With the closest major convention a few states away, Philly Brick Fest 2014 is primed to attract a new audience and create another longstanding Philadelphia tradition.

Our very good friend, Chad “Stud” Collins from YourCreativeFriends, has embarked on a mission that will bring Philly its first ever LEGO convention. “Philly Brick Fest will open up a world of imagination and creativity never seen before in our area.” says Collins.
