A BIONICLEŽ Song From Another Age Posted by Richard on March 4, 2018 at 08:12 PM CST:
Paul Hardcastle composed a number of songs for The LEGO Group as part of a deal with Universal Studios. One of these songs, titled "Bionicle Age", was left unused and later published in a stock album under the name "Bionic Age". BioMedia Project has recently archived the song to help it get the attention it deserves. You can see more of Paul's work here. Forum link.
LEGOPalooza 2018 Photos Posted by Richard on February 24, 2018 at 09:41 PM CST:
My photos from LEGOPalooza 2018 are now here on Flickr. This year's event had so many visitors the Morehead Planetarium asked NCLUG to keep the display running an extra half hour to let the last of the line through. The NCLUG builders had a number of themes on display, including Anime and video game characters, Star wars, mecha, Warhammer, Scooby Doo, minimalistic characters, marvel, and classic toys like Rokem Sockem Robots just to name a few.

LEGOPalooza 2018 Approaches Posted by Richard on January 23, 2018 at 05:31 PM CST: LEGOPalooza 2018 is almost here. The event is free to attend at the Morehead Planetarium on January 27 at 11AM and January 28 at 1PM. While the event is small in comparison to something like Brickfair, it has some incredibly talented builders featuring a number of themes. The NCLUG crew have been talking about some Star Wars and Blactron collaborations. There are typically some excellent mecha, anime, and last but not least some BIONICLE. Forum link.
LiteUp Blocks Downtown Diner kit Posted by Richard on January 16, 2018 at 04:23 PM CST:
Jonathanwilson posted another liteupblocks kit on our forums recently. This time it is for the Downtown Diner. The various large windows of the Diner work very well with the custom lighting, I'd say it's the best set for custom lighting so far.
