BRICK 2015 at London's ExCeL is now just over two weeks away.
In the run-up to the show we are taking a look at some of the fantastic MOCs that are being displayed in the fan zone.
We can also now report on the speaker line up for AFOLCON, the event specifically for AFOLs that's being held on the Thursday before the main event. I'm told there are a handful of tickets available for it so if you haven't already secured your place you can buy them here. AFOLCON tickets also provide entry to the main BRICK show on all three days.
Tickets for the main event are also selling fast but can still be obtained from SeeTickets. Remember, if you need five tickets use the code BRICK15 at checkout to get them for just £69.
The Arvo Brothers are talented builders from Spain who produce books containing instructions for their best models. Last year they published one on their model of Kaneda's Bike which, to this day, has caused a worldwide shortage of the rarest parts used in it.
Their second book has just been published which will probably have much the same effect because it features what is, in my opinion, a far more iconic and desirable model: an alien from the quadrilogy of films of the same name.
Its bio-mechanical form lends itself to creation in LEGO, particularly given the many curved and creature parts introduced recently. The brothers have done a fantastic job of modelling it, and of presenting it in the pages of this book.
