"I've made my list, checked it twice, gonna find out which MOCs are naughty and nice, 'cos BrickCon 2012 is coming to town!"
I don't need to explain to anyone reading this blog what a LEGO convention is, or in what town BrickCon takes place (hint: it's Seattle), or why I think it's the most awesome of all the Cons. Lots of cool stuff gonna be there this year, as Andrew B already summarized. And they've even been foolish enough to let me do a couple of talks this time too!
Of course THE TOTAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE EVENT will undoubtedly be the 5th incarnation of BRICKS OF CHARACTER, hosted by Tommy and me. Which this year includes our Heather Braaten "Darlings" tribute. Thankyou to everyone who agreed to contribute a Darling to the display, especially those that couldn't attend but mailed me their Darlings anyway!
And for those bringing MOCs to the BOC table, you're in the running to win a trophy. Or more specifically, a TRAVIE! We're handing out 4 this year (categories to be revealed at the event). But even if you don't walk off with one of these beauties, don't despair, because you'll all still be getting one of our signature badge bricks to wear around the Convention.
So my gear is all packed and loaded into my car, and I'll be seeing some of you starting tomorrow morning, as the preparations (and fun n' games!) get underway. And finally, for no particular reason, in the words of our very hard-working and glorious leader Wayne (who will hate me for using this again)...
