What have we been up to recently and where are we going to be? Look no further to find out!

Comic Expo 2016

We had a great time this year at the Edmonton Comic Expo! This year we featured an extended hoth scene with the Ron's 120 pund A6 juggernaut rolling into battle along with another scene based on the upcoming Rogue One movie. Along with those centerpieces, we had plenty of geekiness to go around from Battlestar Galactica, Minecraft, Overwatch, Starcraft, Avatar the last airbender and more! Some of the members of NALUG  also had the opportunity to speak at a panel about our LEGO hobby to the general public. All in all it was a great show and we hope to be back next year.

    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

    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!
