BrickCan 2024 is almost here!

For those of you who are lucky to have bought tickets early to BrickCan 2024, it’s quickly coming up this weekend. Unfortunately, tickets sold out quite in advance this year, as it is an ever popular LEGO event in the Lower Mainland. The VLC has members there at the River Rock Resort setting up their LEGO builds, as well as many AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) from across North America, and as far as Australia, doing the same to bring you a lot of amazing LEGO creations by talented builders.

Looking around the theatre, it will not disappoint. We hope to see many of you there!

For those that missed out, do follow the BrickCan Instagram account, to find out when tickets become available for next year’s BrickCan. @BrickCan

Thank you for coming to the Museum of Surrey!

We had an amazing run of our Everything is Still Awesome display at the Museum of Surrey and sadly it has now come to an end.

We do hope that you had a chance to come out to see it. If you did not or you want to see it through a different lens, you’re still able to see our display virtually.

Thank you to all of our VLC members who took part in contributing towards this successful exhibition. As well as to the Museum of Surrey for having us there and the staff who helped to make it shine even further.

Till the next one!

(psst.. it’s the sold out BrickCan 2024, next week)

War of the Star Age Saga

The other day VLC member Joel Short’s build “Wars of the Star Age” was debuted and gathered the attention of many other LEGO fans, including The Brother Brick, who highlighted this spectacular build by Joel.

The level of detail conveyed with so few pieces make this build truly incredible. If you want to see this build in person it will be at FanExpo Vancouver, February 17th through 19th.
