Thanks Tyler!!

That is a nice image you found there.

Amazing to have won three in a row. Never thought that would have been possible.

Five in total since 2008.

Crazy :shock:

Indeed. Biggest build has no direct correlation to complexity, ingenuity, or beauty.

Here's my few pictures from the weekend. What a great weekend it was!

And of course, congrats Paul. I think you reached "legend" status this time.

Holy sweetness! I just saw this on Brothers Brick.

Just to be clear, I'm talking about the BrickCan advertising, not the guys in the photo.

Crikey, mate! The elusive 1x13, never before seen in the wild. Here we can see it in it's natural habitat. Let's not try to scare off the mate of the 1x13, the symbiotic natured AFOL.
