Brick Fiesta 2011 – Part 2

IF you want to see the first part, here is Part 1 of my Brick Fiesta pics if you want to see the other photos published so far. This is the full set at flickr.

As I said in part 1, the lighting was not optimal for photography without a nice flash, but I tried. The quality does get better.

This was by far one of my favorite MOCs that I saw, and one of the largest, if not the largest. It is a 2011 MOC called Mirage, by Nannan Zhang and Tyler Clites. “High above, the guardians of the seven virtues protect the worlds below from sin and corruption.”

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.
