Every October  at the Seattle Center, LEGO® hobbyists (what you call anyone old enough to drive who still loves their LEGO®) converge at Brick Con. This year marks its 10th anniversary as the longest running fan-based LEGO® convention.

It’s a family friendly event where the general public is invited in to be amazed, observe amazing LEGO® creations and meet the builders. If you have  LEGO® enthusiasts in your home, as I do with my boys, it is a must-see. We went last year and will be there this year.

Yes, it is Saruman’s Fortress from Lord Of The Rings.  This is one of my favorite  scenes from The Two Towers when the Ents have had enough and start handing out a*%kickings and lollipops and are all out of  lollipops.

You can purchase hard to find LEGO®  sets and custom items you aren’t going to find at the LEGO®  store…
