Let the Brick Magic recap commence...This past weekend, I was in Raleigh, North Carolina, for an Adult Fan of LEGO convention. Since, I shall simply relate three things I never expected to happen and then give a full account of events over the course of this week.
1. Drive an R-2 unit around a hotel bar. One of the adult fans of LEGO is also a member of the 501st and he brought his latest project -- a lifesize, remote-controlled R-2 bar. And that's I found myself piloting a droid around the Sky Box as a bartender in a referee's uniform watched in bemusement.
2. Sell out of books. 56 books entered, none left...in my hands. This was the kumite of book-selling. So, folks are either excited to read LEGO: A Love Story or were just drawn in by that new book smell.
3. Receive an early gift of a collectible minifig. They don't come out until June, but LEGO gave each attendee of Brick Magic, a free collectible minifig to take home. This post would have been up sooner, but I've spent the last five hours playing with my minifig zombie.
