LEGO House

LEGO House will open officially on 28th of september, but Sariel was able to take a sneak peek already.  Lego House is home of a brick and you can find there all things connected with LEGO past, present and future. There is even a section showcasing MOCs built from fans from all over the world.  I’m proud to have my models there too (although not all of them are there yet), and my Zbudujmy’to colleague Jarek Książczyk better known as Jerac has his models displayed there too.

I will be there setting up the rest of my mocs there and then visit it on AFOL opening on 22nd. I will make my own video when i get back from the trip.

 

LEGO Festival – Blue City Warsaw / Poland

My dear friend Dominik, and Zbudujmy.to colleague, has just published some impressions from LEGO Festival, that is held in Blue City shopping mall in Warsaw / Poland.

The event will take three weeks,  and is organized by LEGO Poland. Except usual activities, there are lego sculptures from Dirk Denoyelle, and also some dioramas Zbudujmy.to members build for LEGO Poland.


Please visit Dominik’s blog – Bricks’s Treasure where he shares his passion for LEGO Bricks and stop motion film-making.

How do we transport our models?

How do we transport our models? Is the question we often hear on our exhibitions. Today i have 2 videos showing hour our models are transported:

If you wonder, the boxes are made out of 5 layer cardboard in a  international standard FEFCO301. We ordered them here: http://www.cart-pack.pl/fefco.html but i would recommend finding local producer, as the boxes have to be sent folded, and that would be quite expensive.

As you see on video we have one of the sides unstapled so you can easily open it and remove the model. Cover is fully stapled.

If you have any more questions, please leave them in the comments, either here or on facebook.

Do you like GBC?

Do you like GBC? Who does not?

This time we have a GBC track from LUGPol’s exhibition in Chojnice 2017. What is interesting is that most if not all of those modules are completely custom and never seen in other setups. The AT-AT factory is one of the ones that shine especially bright.

Authors of this GBC loop are are:

Jan Biela Abreu ‘Jahoo’
Grzegorz Kurkowski ‘Noniusz’
Łukasz Alagierski ‘Jarema’
Krystian Kubrak ‘Kubrick’

Meet us at Pixel Heaven

Boulder Dash is going to Pixel Heaven

Pixel Heaven is a great retro-gaming, indie and demo scene event in Poland. It is being held for the 5th time, and this time there will be also Zbudujmy.to‘s exhibition there.

It is being held between 26 and 28 of May in Old Bus Depot, at  Włościańska 52 str. in  Warsaw, POLAND. Except usual attractions we will have town diorama 25 square meters in size, plus selection of game and geek related models especially build for the event. You will also be able to play with interactive brick models and build your own creations. We will also have resolution of our Brickheads contest, well at least the gaming part of it. The rest of the contest will be held online so if you want to take part in it there is still chance, here are the rules. If Polish is not your language and you want to take part, then let me know in the comments and i will explain it.

Crazy Builders will be also present there, and Jetboy will be giving out presentation about similarities of the demo scene and the AFOL world. This time presentation will be in Polish, but we are already thinking about making a version in English.

Event bricks are ready already:

As the event is taking place in the Bus Depot, we have also something built for that occasion by one of Zbudujmy.to forum members Pablo :

 

How do we prepare exhibitions?

How do  we prepare exhibitions? is one of the most asked questions during our shows. How do we put together such a big  dioramas, and how do we transport them?  This short video answers those questions.

It was recorded during setup of  Zbudujmy.to’s exhibition in Rozbark Theater in Bytom that was held last weekend  (18-19.03.2017). Timelapse shows about 10 hours of setting up the day before.

And here are quick video showing how it looked after it was ready for public:

OH!  And do you have any other brick related questions you want answered? Just post them here or on our facebook!

 

Next week in Bytom!

This is more for Polish readers, but if you want to come from abroad, you will be also very welcomed. Next week Zbudujmy.to is organizing another exhibition in Bytom/Poland. Entrance is free.  More info on the poster below.

We will be there, so expect  extended coverage within 2 weeks.
