Bricks by the Bay 2016

Be Warned. There are LOTS of pictures in this post. In fact, it’s mainly a picture post to share all of the cool things that we saw at Bricks by the Bay. There are some captions scattered throughout, but we all know that the pictures speak much louder than any words I can add to them. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.

This was one of my favorites. I loved how the Flash wrapped around the whole display. It was very impressive.

There’s a Batcave under Wayne Manor. It’s HUGE in person.

This was at least 8 feet tall. The picture doesn’t do it justice! The bridge you see is built to minifigure scale… It’s just SO amazing.

Another one of my top pics, mainly because of the detailed brick work. It was 1×2 pieces… Oh the patience required for something this grand.

I wish I could get the video to work. This kid is so talented. He’s 16, and he and his mom put this together in about 8 months. The idea started with the thought that Metalbeard needed a home. So they built him one, but it kept expanding. There are many moving parts as well. There’s a roller coaster that goes through the mountain, the feris wheel moves, and there’s other moving parts closer to the house. His mom says he did most of the work, and I think he’s got a great career in his future.

I did a burst shot, but the essence of the piece was lost. The creator integrated flashing lights that went off on a timer to make it look like the flashbulb on the cameras the minifigures were holding. it was SO well done.

It’s all about that roof. Using the plants as well. You have to love that about LEGO.
