NALUG had another fantastic display at the Edmonton Comic Expo this year. Featuring everything from Star Wars to Super Heroes, we had the opportunity to capture the many different facets of pop-culture in our favorite plastic bricks. We had a great time interacting with the tens of thousands of visitors that passed through the convention hall over the weekend and look forward to being back next year!

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.

This year, NALUG had the amazing opportunity to run a display at the Edmonton Comic and Entertainment Expo. We had a blast throughout the weekend interacting with some of the 46,000 visitors that came out to the Expo throughout the weekend and saw many jaws drop as they passed by our display. As this was our first time displaying at the Expo, we didn't know quite what to bring and decided upon bringing a little bit of everything. Our display featured a massive Lego city populated with countless iconic pop-culture icons, a Laketown display from the Hobbit movies featuring a terrifying dragon, some sci fi as well as a two-tiered Star Wars Hoth dispay with custom-built minifigure-scale AT-AT's. On top of that, we also had a Battlestar Galactica from the original series built by one of our members, and a Lego Viper signed by Dirk Benedict, Starbuck from the original 80's series. While the weekend passed in a flurry of activity, it was one that we'll gladly (and hopefully) have the chance to be a part of again. See you next September!

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!
