Quite obviously a sponsored post. Either that or he took the wording off their website.

@Imperial13 - My wife and I went to the show last year and the MOCs were truly amazing. But since I'm not affiliated with the event, I just used their standard text. :o)

Grrr.... D.C is like a ten hour drive from Kentucky, so probably no chance of getting there.

I'm going, for the second time! I hope the vendors aren't as outrageous this year as they were two years ago. :-)

Oh, BTW, let it be known to all that the event actually started yesterday, but you have to have a special preordered pass to get in before the 7th.

Ok to answer a few questions.

1. This event has not started yet. It starts tommorrow if you registered as a Exhibitor. If your going just to visit as general public, it starts on saturday and runs through sunday.

2. There is one in Chicago, its called Brick World, but it has already happened for this year.

3. There is one on the West Coast. Its called Brick Con, and I believe its in Seattle.

4. There is one in North Carolina as well. Its called Brick Magic. It was new this year, and will be happening again next year on monthers day.

5. There will be a new one next year in Canada. Toronto I believe. Its called Bricks North.

Any other questions feel free to ask. You really should go there are going to be some amazing MOCs there this year.

@Wyattf1 - As I recall, we just got to see a couple of the late 2009 sets last year at the Lego booth. For this year, it's my understanding that we'll at least get to see the UCS Imperial Shuttle.

@toplessjeep - Thanks so much for the info.

Seattle? Dang, I'm in SoCal. I wish they had something here in California. But from the comments here, it sounds like its worth the trip up north. Thanks for the info, toplessJeep.

By in Canada,

By in United States,

Aww man! I really wanted to go, that's so far from California! :(.

@kurtgasper - Those Brickfair vendors make a killing selling Lego sets and minifigures. They sell them for outrageous prices, and people actually buy them. I think it's almost a crime to sell sets for twice the online average selling price.
