We were invited along to Brick Live! this year with Mayka. It’s not our first year at the event and we were keen to see what would be new this year. We had some fun on the stand with our hosts for the day Mayka where H tried some scientific experiments to see how many 2×4 bricks could be held by their fabulous sticky tape. The answer was 31 which we felt was pretty impressive.
There’s a lot to do at Brick Live and one of H’s favourite stands is the Warner Brothers stand where he was trying out the latest games. He really enjoyed the LEGO Ninjago Movie Game which is already out and the LEGO Marvel SuperHeroes 2 Game which will be released on 17 November, but you can pre-order now.
We loved exploring the Safari section with its amazing LEGO models: very ingenious and lots of hard work.
H picked up a bargain in the Toys R Us shop, but he was disappointed that they didn’t stock the set he has his eye on for Christmas. He was hoping for another bargain so he could get more off his wish list. We saw some good-looking play and display platforms that H was quite taken with from Base Ace.
There were lots of stands selling vintage LEGO which always interests H as he’d like some Harry Potter LEGO, but sadly it isn’t available to buy new anymore except from specialist dealers. Brick Live is on at the NEC until Sunday if you fancy popping along.
