The Seattle Times
Times when I wonder about attending a Lego convention would be when I read about them and see the photos, such as the article by The Seattle Times on BrickCon 2010. I won’t reproduce the article here, as there is a note that says: “Permission to reprint or copy this article or photo, other than personal use, must be obtained from The Seattle Times.”
For photos of the exhibits and attendees, do pop by Seattle Times’ Photo Gallery of BrickCon at The Seattle Center.
Update: For the latest pics of BrickCon, check out the Flickr page here. Good stuff in there including video reviews by Nannan Z of Diagon Alley 10217 here (part 1) & here (2). The stickers are slightly disturbing. 😦
CBS reports on the phenomenon of AFOLs. Interesting nuggests of info I got from that article include: – TLG estimates there are 40,000 AFOLs worldwide and AFOLs are estimated to account for 5% of Lego sales.
Only 5%? I would have thought more but anyway… you can read more here: Connecting to Legos: Not Just for Kids
Update: Thanks to efullner who shared on EB that you can view the video here. If there is a youtube video that I can use to embed, pls let me know. 🙂
