LEGO World Shows of the 80s

April 19, 2010

Brickset.com has a new section on their website showcasing the LEGO World Shows that took place in the 80s. Long before LEGOLAND was anywhere other than in Denmark these touring shows inspired a generation of LEGO fans on just what could be done with the brick.

Although not as fantastic as modern LEGO models these earlier sculptures were the precursor to them. Children like me saw these models and have turned into the Master Model Builders, Architects and Artists of today. Who knows what future generations will come up with. 😉
