GETS 2016

NALUG made another impressive and successful appearance at the 2016 Greater Edmonton Train Show at Millennium Place in Sherwood Park. While the footprint was smaller than in previous years, the display was still densely packed with custom built locomotives and rolling stock, cars and trucks,and more. Everything from the small-town church to a towering skyscraper was included, and the crowd was wowed by the mechanized bridges, ferris wheels, and the Drop of Doom. Even the Tragically Hip showed up in minifig scale to play a show!
 

To continue the streak of award winning displays NALUG took second place in this year's People's Choice. Look for us next year!

    Northern Bricks 2016

    Northern bricks was a blast this year with a full four days of LEGO goodness. From parts drafts, to competitions and the everstressful period of setup, we had a great time participating this year and bringing about an even larger layout than last time. From trains to sci-fi, technic or castle the show had something for everyone. It also featured a number of new, impressive creations including a massive A6 Juggernaut from starwars and an incredible Minecraft display. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to admire the displays and participate in the EEk! comic and pop culture fest along with Northern Bricks. We hope to be back next year

  • Gets 2015

    NALUG had another stellar showing at the Great Edmonton Train Show this year, with some new additions such as an expanded theme park section and the return of the high level bridge among others. The entire layout came together, as always, with a flurry of ast minute adjustments and sighs of releif, but we managed not to lose too many Lego bricks in the process. Check out the photos below or our full gallery for some great pictures of the event!

  • Comic Expo 2015

    NALUG returned once again this year to the Edmonton Comic and Pop Culture show joining world renowned guest such as Stan Lee and Jenna Coleman for a fun filled weekend of geekiness with a bit of Lego thrown in. Our hoth display was expanded this year, with a new AT-AT dominating the snowscape of Hoth and the sister display of the Jakku scrapyard from the new Star Wars movie was a hit as well. With a couple other spaceships in there from Battlestar Galactica to Firefly along with the ever-popular "where's waldo" display athe entire show was a great success (and we actually succeeded in not completely blocking a hallway thanks to our new location). Over the course of the weekend some of our members also participated in a short panel discussion entitled "The brick Strikes Back: Coming Out of Your Dark Ages", which we'll have a video of up shortly. In the meantime, feel free to check out our full gallery of Expo pictures or peruse the selected ones below!
