The Irish LEGO User Group would like to thank our friends at LimBrickCity for helping host the great day. Discover bigger (and better!) pictures of these great builds on the forum. Lug.ie Team  ...

Culture Night Exhibition Round-up

Culture Night Exhibition Round-up We’d like to thank all those who came along to our Culture Night LEGO exhibition at the Civic Centre in Blanchardstown, Dublin and all our members for bringing along and showing their collections and creations. We were particularly happy to see members Nicky and Merlin display their fantastic wares for the first time.

Nicky's motorized bulldozerr and Royalridge's customised LED lit up Millennium Falcon were not surprisingly among the crowd favourites. But can you spot BB-8 keeping an eye on things? Here's looking forward to the next show! Lug.ie Team ...

And the winner is…

Building the Community Competition Ireland by Peter (Studnik) And the votes are in! Despite stiff competition Peter’s Ireland has been selected by the panel as the best Building the Community entry. With just 2 unique parts used this build is both simple and not at the same time. Instantly recognisable this symbolic MOC uses a silver little microfig for each and every Irish LEGO User Group member. That’s right, all 285 of us are accounted for. Can you spot yourself? Well we thought the idea was just great and the end result fantastic, so congratulations Peter for pulling it off. A sealed LEGO Ninjago 70607 box set will be on its way to you. Find out more about this MOC from its creator here.   We’d like to thank all who submitted an entry into the competition. Check out all the entries on the Forum's Members Creations board.

Lug.ie in the News

Lug.ie in the News Our recent exhibit at the Civic Centre in Blanchardstown made it into a number of newspapers and online media sites including the July - August edition of Dublin Gazette (page 2) and online on Dublinlive and so we thought we'd share it here. We think the journalistic freedom the authors took might have hyped it up (somewhat) but all publicity's good publicity right? :D                       If you didn't catch them, here's the transcripts:   Dublin Gazette: LEGO to the library to see great models A LEGO exhibition will be on display at Blanchardstown Library this Saturday, July 28. The exhibit will see some of Ireland's best adult LEGO builders display dozens of creations to the public.
