Great Western LEGO Show: 5 weeks to go!

Posted by ,

The UK's largest LEGO show is again taking place this year at the STEAM museum, Swindon, October 5th and 6th.

Last year we organised badges for attending Brickset members so that we could identify ourselves to each other. We'll be doing the same again this year so if you'd like us to make you a badge, please fill out this form by the end of September.

I'll be blogging on the show's website on the run-up to the event again, starting later this week, hopefully. I'm not exhibiting anything this year as I'm going away on a (badly timed) holiday on the Sunday, so I'll be there on the Saturday only. Hopefully I'll see many of you there!

Only seems like a few days ago that the Great Western Lego Show was taking place. How time flies... :-)

I will be attending on Sunday for my fourth time at the show, fully equipped this time with a Brickset T-shirt.

I very much look forward to seeing all of the excellent models (which seem to improve year on year) and hope I can meet some more Brickset members in person while I am there!

There aren't that many advantages to living in Swindon...but when they put a LEGO show on your doorstep, well that certainly helps!

Filled the form in :) I'll be there probably on the Saturday, but only as a spectator, as it just so happens I'll be on holiday close-by at the time!

I'm hoping to do Sunday again - the afternoon slot is usually quieter. More time and space for taking pictures.

Hopefully, the Steam Museum will do a single parent rate for those with two children, to help keep costs in check.
Having looked at their pricing on the Steam website - it would appear the museum is out of touch with modern society. Single parents aren't accounted for, but the family is!!! Moan over.

Not that I am a single parent, I'm just a Lego widower. :-)

I am going to try and make it up to one of the days But will need to keep my Lego purchases down until then As the Lego widower in my life doesn't like the L word and claims I am a obsessive

If anyone else wants to order shirts to be suitable recognised at STEAM, here's the page to order from http://www.brickset.com/miscellaneous/merchandise/

Order before September 22nd to have them posted, or you can pick them up on the day from the Simply Bricks stand in the trading hall.

I may have a few ready made shirts with me, but no guarantees!

@Teflon70 - it's something I specifically asked the museum to address this year (and they have). There will be a 1 adult + 2 children ticket.

I am looking forward to the shop this year. They had a Jango Fett Slave I and UCS Naboo fighter last year both BNIB, but the Slave I was £140 and the Naboo fighter £230! Fortunately I did get the Gungan Sub (Just for the JJB fig really, but the other figures and model are great) and my son got the Slytherin common room BNIB for £25. I do hope they have some Avatar and Speed Racer figures and also some of the old Batman figures this year.
