Another BrickFair has passed, which means it's time to rant about it!
First off, before moving onto several amazing MOCs, huge thanks to Dalton for coming out to visit! It is always a pleasure to attach an online name to a face and an actual name (also, thanks for the artwork). For those that live in the DMV area, you'll have yet another shot to visit next year at BFVA 2020!
Anyways, onto the builds!
With that out of the way, my favorite MOC definitely goes to Deep Space 9. That thing almost stood 6 feet tall, and had a diameter of about 6 feet as well. It also has LEDs inside, allowing it to light up.
This year, I also had the pleasure of receiving my first nomination for Best Castle/Knights. I was also extremely happy to see that one of my fellow castle builders finally got a Brickee for Best Castle/Knights. Honestly, he did an awesome job with his build:
Hammerstone Keep by Richard Sala
As for swag, well... there isn't much to show off really! Most of the unreleased BW stuff I already own and have showed off before (I think). I also finally got my hands on several overmolded BrickArms prototypes including the Bone-Jack Tri-Barrel Shotgun, M27 IAR, Maulers from Halo 3, modcom UCS MK2, and a laser cannon (can't remember the official name, but I know it can no longer be created because the mold broke).
I'll probably have a separate topic fully detailing my thoughts on those.
So how was BrickFair overall? Pretty good!
We had quite the decent turn out and we appeared to have way more space for most of the displays. The castle location kind of sucked since we were the only theme shoved in the market place, but hey, every year, someone has to have a crappy spot! The builds were high quality, and a lot of folks came up with some super creative stuff. I even got a new idea, which will be next BFVA's build.
Anywho, I should probably get back to work since I am writing this from my half a cubicle. I might post some additional thoughts later. Stay tuned for that Unreleased/Proto post (probably shove it in the minifig topic of mine) one of these days.
Until then, I'm out!
