Philly Brick Fest 2015 Steel City LUG Showcase

Philly Brick Fest 2015 - Steel City LUG

Continuing with my coverage of Philly Brick Fest 2015 from a few weeks ago, I’ve been showing some of the LUGs that attended the event and displayed their LEGO MOCs with TubeLUG and PennLUG. Today, I have another showcase featuring another Pennsylvania LUG called Steel City LUG.

Steel City LUG is mainly located in Pittsburgh, hence the name “Steel City,” and they made the 5+ hour trip to Philly to represent their LUG. Like last year, they were well represented and even a few members won a couple of Rocky’s for their MOCs, including one special one called “The Lord of Games” which went to Dan Walker. Check out all the cool stuff they had displayed below.

Philly Brick Fest 2015 PennLug Showcase

IMG_9043

I’m back with another LUG showcase from Philly Brick Fest featuring one of the most well-known LUGs in Pennsylvania with PennLUG. Known for their massive train and town layouts, it was nothing short of spectacular of what was shown off at PBF. To see it go from an empty space to what was there in about a day and half of set up was very cool to see. There were other builds that weren’t part of the train/town layout that were equally awesome which I have separated down below.

Philly Brick Fest 2015 TubeLUG Showcase

Philly Brick Fest 2015 TubeLUG

One of the LUGs that attended this past Philly Brick Fest was not your ordinary LUG that gets together regularly physically but virtually. This group of people is called TubeLUG and it is made up of members of the YouTube community. I believe every Saturday, many members get together on a livestream on YouTube showing off their creations and what they have going on during the week.

The biggest TubeLUG build at Philly Brick Fest was easily the one by Bricks4Chris as you can see from some of the images below although it doesn’t really do it justice of how big it actually is if you saw it in person.

Below is a list of some of the TubeLUG members that attended PBF, in no particular order. If I missed anyone, let me know in the comments section.

Philly Brick Fest 2015 Glow Zone

Philly Brick Fest 2015 Glow Zone

The LEGO news is fairly slow the past couple of days so I’ve had some time to go over the pictures I took while at Philly Brick Fest. The first thing I’ll be featuring is the Glow Zone which was newly implemented since I last attended PBF from last year. The Glow Zone is pretty much a collection of builds that use translucent pieces contained in a curtained off area that is lit up by a blacklight to give the builds a cool effect. The main centerpiece of the Glow Zone is the Cthulhu-looking creature by Carter Baldwin.

Philly Brick Fest 2015 LEGO Phillie Phanatic

Philly Brick Fest 2015 LEGO Phillie Phanatic

I’ve finally had time to go through the swag bag for registered attendees from Philly Brick Fest a few weeks ago and one of the items included was a LEGO mini build of the Philadelphia Phillies’ famous mascot, the Phillie Phanatic. The Phanatic is recognized as one of the best sports mascots and was the the first mascot to be inducted into the Mascot Hall of Fame.

I believe the LEGO Phanatic build was created by Carter Baldwin (correct me if I’m wrong) and it uses the new LEGO Mixels joints to give it plenty of articulation on the head, arms, and legs. It even has the extendable tongue by the way of a red wand piece. The sticker of the Phillies jersey completes the look of the character.

Overall the mini LEGO Phillie Phanatic is a very neat little build that was included in the swag bag. I really like the look of it compared to the real-life counterpart. I’ll be showing off more swag that I got from my trip in the next few days when I have some free time. I also have tons of pictures to upload of the MOCs that were on dispay so I’ll probably be breaking them up in a couple of posts.

There will be tons of MOCs on display from various local LUGs such as PennLUG as well as a number of vendors like The Brick Show, eclipseGRAFX, and Brick Warriors just to name a few. There’s still time to get tickets if you want to attend the public days on Saturday and Sunday.
