Queensland’s premier Lego Fan Expo is coming to Brisbane this October, so get ready for another year of fantastic fan-built Lego displays.
This October, BrisBricks will be holding a Lego Fan Expo for people of all ages to experience nostalgia and awe.
Building on the success of last year’s event, where more than 11,000 south east Queensland fans saw many amazing displays, this year’s event is set to be even bigger.
See displays such as “The Great Ball Contraption”; a tribute to pop culture and many beloved movies (think Back to the Future, Indiana Jones and Star Wars); Minecaft world complete with Zombies, Creepers and the dreaded Endermen.
The BrisBricks Adult Fan of Lego (AFOL) community in South East QLD has built amazing displays to be enjoyed by fans both young and old. There will be interactive displays, a large train layout, and displays from AFOLs located all over the country.
This year, the expo is very lucky to have the replica (13:1 scale) functional model of the Joyglobal P&H 2300xpc, travelling all the way from Yungaburra in far north QLD. This model alone has an estimated 30,000 Legoelements, and took 14 months to build!
Over 1.5 million bricks will be displayed this year.
There will also be a Lego play area for kids, plenty of retailers, food vendors, plus much more.
At the expo, patrons will enjoy:
- Amazing fan built Lego creations and set displays
- Star Wars – Redback 501st Garrison and Tatooine Rebel Base clubs – have your photo taken with a storm trooper or a Jedi!
- Lego play area
- Lego 4×4 Wheel Drive Vehicle interactive display
- Charity raffle with Lego prizes
- Specialist Lego retailers, face painting, Jewelry made from Lego, pre-loved Lego and more.
The Lego Fan Expo will be held at Chandler Arena (1763 Old Cleveland Road) from Saturday 3 October to Monday 5 October, with a special session for the Autism community on Sunday 4 October. For more information, check out our event guide .
