LUG Activity Day

March 14th, 2018

On Sunday 11th March we held a LUG Activity Day where members of Rainbow Bricks got together and built. We also held a workshop on making your own lights for your LEGO creations. As well as a show and tell session where members brought along some of their new creations for us to enjoy and provide feedback. 

For the building we used a range of the Building Bigger Thinking 60th anniversary LEGO sets to build from. These sets each have a number of builds included in the instruction book plus more instructions are avialable to download from the LEGO website. The sets are full of great colours and parts to help those with the imagination to build beyond the instructions. Each set includes a 60th Anniversary tile. The builds are inventive and fun including a space ship, unicorn, castle, parrot and of course our favourite a Rainbow! There are 5 sets in the theme and they range in price from $7 [85 pieces] to $59 [871 pieces] for the largest set. Big W and Kmart both stock these sets and are usually the same price which is less than RRP.

We started by building a number of instructed builds for taking photos and the members really enough building those. But once we had finished building some of the sets the members really started to create their own builds, some being modification of an instructed build while others were built from scratch. What Will You Build from these sets?

The day went way too fast as happens when you are building!

REVIEW: MidCoast Brickfest 2018

March 9th, 2018

Thank You to everyone who came along to Rainbow Bricks' event MidCoast Brickfest on Sunday. It was a great success with the profits going to the hard working Halliday’s Point Public School P&C.

Around 2000 visitors came through the doors to see that the builders had brought to display. The children were also treated to a free build area and a Speed Build Competition which was very popular!

Of course the event would also not be possible without the exhibitors and their wonderful creations. None of the exhibitors are paid they are all volunteers donating their time and energy to help out the event charities/schools.

We hope you enjoyed the day. Tell us which you enjoyed the most was it the exhibits, the Build Area or the Speed Build Competition. Did you go home and build? :-)

We look forward to seeing you again.
