On Sunday 15 October, eight members of SydLUG created a Toy Brick Extravaganza at Jannali Public School to accompany their market day fundraising event. This is the second year that the LUG has been invited to display at the school and with the crowd number of 1300 doubling that of the previous year, it’s obvious that the display is proving popular.
For new SydLUG member, Max, the show held special significance, presenting his debut exhibit as an official LUG member. Max’s efforts were impressive and received much attention from the crowd. Taking his inspiration from Pokemon he created a detailed Poke ball jewellery box and an extremely accurate representation of Pokemon character, Red Gyarados. Other popular displays included the Domo, (a previous Sydney Brick Show award winner), Bricksburg, a replica of Lord Business’ lair from The LEGO Movie and the winter village build which got everyone thinking about the upcoming festive season.
A successful day was had by all and SydLUG was thrilled to be able to share their creations for the benefit of a worthy cause. Today’s students are tomorrow’s AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) after all!
