Just this last week a massive LEGO mosaic was assembled up in Los Angelos.
LEGO Master Builder Erik Varszegi joined kids from the Hollywood Boys & Girls Club to assemble a one-of-a-kind mural in support of the Toy Story & Toy Story 2 release on Blu-ray™ (March 23). Kids from six different Boys & Girls Clubs across the US in regional markets each built a portion of the elaborate Toy Story mural out of LEGO® bricks, which were joined together for the first time in Los Angeles. Participating Cities included: Washington DC, Chicago, Houston, Philadelphia, Denver and Los Angeles.
A couple days before this event Erik dropped by to our local LUG (LEGO User’s Group) SandLUG. It was nice to see my friend since I haven’t seen him in person in years. He was a little jet lagged though, he’d just arrived from Australia.
One of the highlights of the meeting was Super Minotaurus — a super-sized version of the LEGO Game Minotaurus. It featured 3 minotaurs, 8 players, two dice and twice the board game space. It was a much more interesting variation than the original game. Predictably the game took hours. :D
