Our members put on a successful AFOL display at the Angelika Film Center in Manhattan for the NYC premiere of “A LEGO Brickumentary”! Parents and kids stopped by to check out New York City-themed MOCs by NYCLUG members Lyn, Donald, Sid and Don, who gave out free “Brickumentary” posters and postcards, and answered questions about the film! Our MOCs included Don’s George Washington Bridge, Lyn’s Citibike stand and Brazilian Trio Electrico, Donald’s joyriding motorcyclist and Sid’s Bricklyn Bridge. A Saturday morning into afternoon well-spent! (more…)
