Brick Fiesta 2011 – Part 1

Update: Here is Part 2 of my Brick Fiesta 2011 Pics

A month ago, Brick Fiesta, Texas’ first major LEGO convention was held in Austin, Texas, and I’m just now getting around to posting photos!

Keep in mind the early photos I took were off in the color – the lighting was pretty bad, but the quality picks up in the next few batches after this.

As always, clicking on the photos below will take you to a larger version of the photo. This is the full set and will eventually have 100+ photos.

The mascots of Brick Fiesta:

“Modeled on the real life Neverwas Haul, a self-propelled 3-story Victorian House, piloted by a Pith helmeted crew, is a “steam punk” fantasy come to life.

Ship on the left:
Republic of Texas Navy Steamship-of-War Zavala
First Steamship-of-War in the Texas Navy and was built in 1836, commissioned in 1839, and decomissioned in 1842. She was based out of Galveston, Texas, and had a crew of 24 officers and 123 sailors and Marines, with 5 cannon. Wikipedia article.

Ship in the middle is fictional and named the “RTS Legomalee” and the ship on the right is a fictional Texas version of the ironclads from the Civil War.

The major vendors were in attendance and it was rather nice to see the items and minifigs up close and personal rather than viewing them on websites or in magazines:

“Conduit 7” is from a movie poster of a science fiction and fantasy convention held in Utah (more information (Wikipedia))

Over all I was very happy and look forward to Brick Fiesta 2012. I’m hoping to have a much more active role in next year’s Brick Fiesta.
