A micropolis module that I built for this weekend’s PortLUG meeting.
As I explore the Lego world, poring over images of conventions, I am constantly impressed with the size and quality of collaborative builds. Recently, our PortLUG Lego Ambassador suggested that we might want to do more group builds and grow our presence at conventions. I started floating some ideas in my head and building prototypes until I settled on a standard that I dubbed ‘Arcology.’
Every month I go to a PortLUG meeting. There are usually impressive and inspiring MOCs to see and assorted business and gossip to pass around. The highlight for me is almost always the festival of sorting and treachery that is the draft.
It has been about a year since I came out of my dark age and started to get back into building Lego. I was going through a big transition at the time, quitting my job and becoming a stay at home dad, and I was feeling isolated. Discovering the online Lego communities was great, but what I really wanted to do was meet other adults that had a passion for Lego, so I joined a my local LUG.
I’ve started a new blog, and this one is going to be about Lego. I’ve been building with Lego since I was a wee lad and some of my earliest memories are of building on the floor while my dad worked. Over the years, my relationship with the hobby has waxed and waned. Now, I find myself getting involved again.
