Quoted from an ongoing Eurobricks Train Tech discussion forum. The new recent discovery of the unexpected 3677 LEGO Cargo Train set was spotted in LEGO World 2011 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The new 3677 LEGO Cargo set
More images can be found here. What do our fellow readers think? I, for one never expect to see a new Cargo Train to be scheduled for the 2011 releases. It certainly looks appealing with all of the train elements together.
Just a quick reminder to all our Classic Town readers that Brickworld 2010 is only a week away and it looks like we have quite a few Eurobricks members who will be attending the convention! Rumors are that a lot of people are putting in some long nights to get their fantastic creations ready for the event.
The convention will be held June 17th – 20th, 2010 in Wheeling, IL USA at the Westin Chicago North Shore Hotel. This year, the theme is “Bricks in Space!” and we are expecting to see some really cool Space creations show up at the event including a Vic Viper fly-in as a tribute to the late Nate Nielson (aka nnenn). In addition to Space-related MOC’s, creations include train layouts, tall buildings, sculpture, towns, mosaics, futuristic battle scenes, replicas of many things, castles, things that move, things that are stationary, space displays, animals, architecture, artistry, history, and much much more.
If you can make it out to the event, we strongly encourage you to come join us for a few days (or even just a few hours) of fun and a little bit of mayhem. For those of you who can’t join us this year, your Classic Town team will be (attempting) to keep you up-to-date on what is going on at the event through pictures and blog posts. Hope to see you there!
New to the 2010 convention circuit is an AFOL convention in North Raleigh, NC called BrickMagic. BrickMagic is presented by BrickJournal magazine and its publisher (TwoMorrows Inc.) who are both based in Raleigh, NC. Joe Meno is the primary organizer for this festival and it looks like he has a lot in store for the weekend.
The general public is invited to attend the Saturday and Sunday Festival, a ticketed event showcasing the LEGO hobby through spectacular sculptures and displays, special guest builders, panel discussions and presentations, and to join in on interactive “group builds” or to just admire what others have created.
AFOL attendees are taking part in the private portion of the convention on Thursday and Friday, and before and after public hours on Saturday and Sunday. There will be advanced presentations and classes, door prizes, goodie bags, a special private sale event at the local LEGO retail store, and other benefits not offered to the public.
You can check out more about the event at http://www.brickmagic.org/. Here at Classic Town we will be trying to bring you updates and links to photos from the event for those who aren’t able to attend this new event.
