Coinciding with David Jones 48 Hours Frenzy Sale, I dropped by at David Jones, Castlecragh Street today to check out the 2013 edition of Sydney Brick Show. I could hear the children’s chatters of joy on the 7th floor from where I was on the 3rd floor – noise travels especially if there is an atrium for the escalators. Since I am an Adult Lego Fan, I had to go see. I was a wee bit disappointed because it was rather amateurish after what I accustomed to; e.g ‘The Art of Bricks’ by Nathan Sawaya and Hong Kong Lego Exhibition. The electrical choo-choo trains added a nice touch, but still… Nevertheless I think with part of the money going to charity, it was all for a good cause.
STAR WARS … very popular theme here… (Lego still predominantly the Boys’ Club?!)
My brother will love these, he had the entire Star Wars Collection!!
LOVE BOATS (Ah…somehow reminds me of Fantasy island…”De plane! De plane!” Mr. Roarke and Tattoo, anyone? Or I’m a 70s bitch?)
MEDIEVAL CASTLE WITH ST.GEORGE THE DRAGON
SOMETHING PINK FOR THE GIRLS (Reminds me of my Barbie collection)
ERIKSON AIR-CRANE by a Certified Lego Master Builder
(True, they are fire-fighting heros in the bush-fire fighting Summers, but do you know they were the pioneers in heli-logging in Malaysia?)
Meet the makers and chat with them
ALL-ROUND CHAMPS… If you have a bunch of rug rats to entertain this school hols, this is for you!
Ta-Tah! I’m off for my shopping theraphy now. *Kisses*
