The LEGO Show: what to see (#legoshow)
The focus of The LEGO Show is of course all the amazing MOCs that people have come from all over Europe to display, but I thought it worth listing the highlights of the show from the LEGO collectors' point of view, for the benefit of those still to arrive, or those that haven't yet decided whether to come or not!
- The large Sopwith Camel is on display, along with a 'timeline' of LEGO aircraft from years past.
- The Lord Of The Rings sets are making their public debut at the event.
- Adam Vaughan, designer of many of the Friends sets, has brought the sets that will be out in a few month's time.
- Mark Stafford is displaying the forthcoming Ninjago sets that he designed, along with several prototypes, which are always interesting to see, to better understand the design process.
- Along with the official LEGO shop that's been set up by the Liverpool store, there are around eight other sellers in the hall, selling everything from loose parts to MISB Market Streets (for £500). There's something for every budget!
There is plenty to see and do and, due to the cavernous size of the hall, it's not too crowded. If you can possibly get here today, tomorrow or Monday, I strongly encourage you to do so. It certainly is the 'biggest and best' LEGO show the UK has ever seen.
