WAWLUG first exhibition after pandemic craze. It was held on 20.06.2020 at Bemowo/Warsaw/Poland. Thanks to Edge of Bricks for the video. I was not there myself, but my models were there anyway. Can you find them?
Golden Studs Awards is a yearly event where Zbudujmy.To! awards best Polish brick builders. Let the title not mislead you. 2019 edition run at the beginning of the year is actually for the builds that were published in 2018. Judges who are top builders themselves chose pretenders and then select winners form among them in 12 categories. Works are taken from both polish lugs and polish internet and exhibitions. This year results have been just published. And this time i also won one of the categories \o/ Here are the categories and winners with short description form judges:
Category description: Innovative idea, or new approach to old ideas. It’s more about entire build than interesting building techniques. Winner: jetboy for 3… 2… 1… START!
Quintesence of microscale. Great thing built out of few bricks. Great dynamics of the launch of space rocket. Genial in simplicity.
Winner Janek for Punkt Agonii / Tymczasem w postnuklearnej Rosji… (Point of Agony / Meantie in postnuclear Russia…)
Well earned victory for giving “life” to “dead” minifigs.
Winner JAREMA for Alien Queen
Not the first time Jarema proves he is master of characters. Except perfectly realized shape of Alien Queen there is lots of NPU.
You can feel the mass and power. Such a crude mecha, well fitting vision of alternative WWII. It is so different to mechs we all know from other media. It has it’s own style. Ciamek did it again!
Winner Mateusz92 for Alstom Pendolino ED250 PKP Intercity
Mateusz and his train themed models are impressing us for long. It is no different with Pendolino model, which except phenomenal look is fully functional (has full lightning) and adds to each display she rides on.
Winner eric trax for Amazone Pantera 4502
Eric trax each time surprises us with his vehicles. Each time it seems he reached the top, and each consecutive creation of him seems to be better. His topic selection, exotic color schemes on models that are not often built out of Lego bircks made the work that left no chances for runners up.
Servator for long time is building small models in steampunk style, which gives chances for unusual piece usages, but in the case of this monowheel he reached the tops. Using “useless” turbine makes for a great NPU.
Winner Insomnia for Layers City
Insomnia with his Layers City presented fresh approach to city building giving builder opportunity to express himself on three levels, and viewer a chance to feed his senses multiple times on the same area of diorama. Great concept and execution!
Winner Toltomeja for Akademia Górniczo-Hutnicza w Krakowie
Next work that is perfect example of microscale build. Here you can see entire part of the city built realistically. It depicts AGH in Krakow. If it was built in minifig scale it wouldn’t fit in most of the exhibition halls, but as a microscale it can pu put on the table, and still everybody familiar with AGH will recognize aech building easily. We are impressed with completeness and size of the build.
Janek with such a tiny model managed to describe future history and give the feel of the post apocalyptic city so well, we would want to see more of this metropolis,
Nowa Nadzieja jest bardzo ważną kategorią i wszyscy wiedzą dlaczego. Spośród nominowanych w tej kategorii, KarolWes wyróżnia się różnorodnością podejmowanej tematyki oraz niebanalnym podejściem do budowania.
Przegląd tegorocznych prac:
Last year’s New Hope, this time most popular from advanced builders, what an instantaneous career! Insomnia builds MOCs small and monumental, happening in the past and future, sterile and messy, but always full of interesting details, colorful and extremely climatic. We wait for more!
Congratulations for all the winners, if you want to see all the contenders please go to Zbudujmy To! forums.
Fiki Miki is tribute to old classic polish comic books – “Awantury i wybryki małej małpki Fiki Miki” by Kornel Makuszyński and Marian Walentynowicz, more famous for their “Adventures of Koziołek Matołek”. This build was supposed to be exhibited during Polish Comics exhibition in Krakow’s National Museum, along with some other builds from my LUG Zbudujmy To! but was canceled lastminute.
That is not the only model i made for this exhibit. Gapiszon is another hero from my childhood reads. Here he is in a Brickheads version:
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.
If you wonder how LUGPol’s exhibition in Chojnice looked like, here is video answering your question 🙂 Enjoy!
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:
This time timelapse of the setup and part of the LUGPol’s exhibition in Chojnice. There will be more videos from this exhibition comming in following days, so stay tuned.
Excellent video showcasing our exhibition at Pixel Heaven 2017 made by Sariel. It was great show fun for both exhibitors and visitors.
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!
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.
