St George Brick Fair – Back and Bigger Than Ever!

On Sunday, 18thNovember, Hurstville South Public School once again hosted popular family event, the St George Brick Fair. After a year’s hiatus the event has only grown in popularity with over 2,000 people visiting the LEGO-themed fair which featured impressive displays from 16 SydLUG builders.

MOC highlights included a Mega City – always a popular display with trains, planes, an automated fairground, Ghostbusters firehouse complete with light-up billboard, a park with ferris wheel and an old fishing village. Other displays of note were a collection of M-Tron themed Star Wars Ultimate Collectors Series; a Star Wars Carbon Freeze Chamber and the public debut of a Star Wars Dagobah Scene; along with popular moving parts build Bacon City, which was churning out frankfurts and drumsticks all day long! Another crowd-pleaser was the highly detailed Hulk’s Kitchen, containing over 100 minifigs.

There was something for every interest with video game inspired models, a surf beach, Pokémon, robotics, classic space and more.

The amazing SydLUG creations were the main attraction, supported by LEGO-themed games created and coordinated by the school’s students. Other attractions at the fair included a BBQ, cake stalls, LEGO Free Play area and an amazing display of LEGO minifig inspired artworks made by many of the students using recycled materials.

Proceeds from the day will go towards playground upgrades and student resources at the host school.

 

 

Mt Terry Public School Spring Fair 2017

Spring has arrived and so have school spring fairs! On Friday, September 1st, a handful of SydLUG members displayed models at the Mt Terry Public School Spring Fair in Albion Park. The fair is held every two years for the benefit of over 700 of the school’s students and families, and is also attended by other members of the local community.

Pete, Josh, Graham and Ray represented SydLUG with a diverse range of MOCs set up in the school hall, including the Mos Eisley Cantina; a large AT-AT Walker; Star Wars/M:Tron mash-ups; a baseball stadium; crystal towers; The Powerpuff Girls; chess sets, and assorted vignettes. SydLUG members were also invited to judge the students’ build competition, with a competitive selection the decisions were tough!

The day was an enjoyable one with many visitors to the fair returning to the LEGO displays multiple times to ensure they had seen it all and to grab one last look at their favourites.
