LEGOLAND Deutschland Star Wars Fan Display

The trench run from episode 4 ... A new hope.

LEGOLAND CA wasn’t the only park to have Star Wars Days. LEGOLAND Deutschland hosted their own event recently. Dutch Moonbase was on hand with an extremely impressive collaborative display featuring the Death Star Trench Run and a Tatooine landscape. Some pictures are in our flickr Outpost, tons more on Dutch Moonbase’s web page.

Star Wars Days 2011: MOC Roundup


Chibi Slave 1 and McPod

As with each Star Wars Days event at LEGOLAND, fans were once again invited to display their related creations and share them with the public. This year, thanks to some local fans and a few forum members who shipped in their MOCs, FBTB had a few tables with a great spread to show off. Hit the jump for an overview of our booth and some highlights from the rest of the fan displays.

Brandon Griffith’s Jedi Chess Set

What's missing???

Brandon Griffith (icgetaway) made a splash at last year’s Star Wars Days with his Empire Strikes Back-themed chess set. His follow-up act of a Return of the Jedi-themed set will be unveiled to the world this weekend at LEGOLAND CA and will surely be a hit. Shrouded in secrecy, you can view some WIP pics in his photostream. I’ll be taking a plenty of pics of this and all the other mocs at Star Wars Days at LEGOLAND CA on June 18 and 19. Hope to see you there!

Let’s Talk: FBTB Star Wars Days Event

At BrickCon in 2008 FBTB held its first event, a small gathering of members and friends we called BothCon.

In 2011, we’re planning something bigger in correlation with Legoland California Resort’s Star Wars Days on June 18-19th. But we need your help brainstorming and providing feedback if we’re going to pull off a successful FBTB mini-convention.

We’re conducting a poll to gauge interest in and potential attendance for this special event. Your vote and feedback will help us determine if this idea has legs, or it’s destined for the Death Star trash compactor.

Head to the forum here to vote in the poll, and join in the discussion about activities, locations, pros, cons, and everything in between.

Coming Soon: LLCA Star Wars Days 2010!
