Tomorrow, check back here for images of our LUG's visit to the King of Prussia LEGO store, and our quest to install a model to the Community Window display. Workers are building the bell in gray bricks for the bottom and brown for the top, with each new "layer" of the bell done in red, so you can tell which bricks have been added.
Instructions We have uploaded instructions for the ColonialLUG Bell to the new Instructions page, found by hovering over "More" in the red navigation bar at the top of the page. Make sure to send us photos of any Bell models you build!
We installed our display in the King Of Prussia LEGO store tonight! Check it out next time you're in the store - see if you can find Frodo, Doctor Who, characters from The LEGO Movie; Santa and his reindeer - or what's left of them....
Thanks to everyone who contributed to building it and helping to install it tonight!
While you're there, check out the new LEGO sets from the movie! The ice cream truck and the flying flusher are fun to build and play with! Also, the new Friends Mia's Lemonade stand - those chocolate chip cookies and green scooter are so cute!
Check out a video posted by one of our LUG members:

LUG display gets nomination for award!
Our "Summer Playground" that we built for the LEGO store display was nominated for a Brickee Award at BrickFair VA 2013 in the Best Vignette category! Although we didn't win, it was nice to be acknowledged! Way to go everybody! To see it up-close, come to the Carnival in September where it will be on display with some of our other MOCs. Also, check out our Events page for other pictures from BrickFair VA 2013!
Getting Ready for the Carnival...
Building expanded bricks and a big sculpture!
Thanks to Sean and Katia for their help!
ColonialLUG Sponsors LEGO® Brand Retail Store LUG Display!
ColonialLUG has built their first ever LUG display, housed in the LUG box at the LEGO Brand Retail Store.
We built a summertime playground, complete with port-a-potty, sandbox, and tree house. Keep an eye out for the banner plane, which flies our LUG information, and be sure to stop by the grill after you retrieve the kite from the tree. Watch the man walk his dog, and play pirates with the children on the jungle gym. And if you stay out late, find your way back to the benches and lamp where your parents are sitting. Have fun!
