Are your children LEGO fans?
I have a love/hate relationship with the stuff myself, if I’m honest. I do think it’s the greatest construction toy ever and I love how engrossed the children get in building it, but I curse when I tread on it and have been known to threaten to suck it all up the hoover if it gets left on the floor one more time.
All that said, I’m quite upset we aren’t free to attend BRICK 2015 – take a look at this!
After the phenomenal success of BRICK last year, the UK’s biggest immersive LEGO experience returns to London’s Excel in December bigger and better that ever with a humongous array of fun experiences for fans of LEGO of all ages. BRICK 2015 is a LEGO lover’s playground with over 3 million LEGO bricks to play with. Stacked up, that would be 93 times the height of The Shard.
Brick fans will have the opportunity to rub shoulders with colossal LEGO versions of their heroes including Harry Potter’s Hagrid, Avenger’s Hulkbuster, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, three Hobbit figures, Chima, Lord Of The Ring’s Gandalf, and many more. These LEGO creations are huge and Hulk Buster took six professional builders over 960 hours to assemble. The sculpture weighs in at just over 907 kilos and is over 8 foot tall and 2.1m wide.
Last year block heads broke 5 Guinness World Records at BRICK and this year the team intend to build on that achievement so ensure you’re there to make BRICK history.
With BRICK falling one week before the release of the brand new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens film, BRICK visitors will get the chance to see classic Star Wars characters and vehicles recreated in incredible fan builds and Toys R Us will be on hand offering the opportunity to purchase the huge new collection of Star Wars LEGO.
Coming from all corners of the UK and beyond, the Fan Zone will be home to builders from Norway to the USA displaying their amazing rockets, London landmarks, film scenes including Jurassic Park, football stadiums, skyscrapers, incredible mosaics and much more!
