BrickCon 2012 was last weekend. That's the Seattle Lego convention, where people build crazy/amazing things and show them off. And if you're really into it, like me, you can attend seminars and compete in contests.
Ah, three whole days surrounded by people and plastic. A builder's dream come true.
I went to a Lego con in Portland in June, and enjoyed it, so I figured I'd go to the Seattle one as well. The only difference I really noticed was the size. It felt like there were five times as many people -- that is, con attendees and visitors -- in Seattle. But with that... more Lego models, too. I took some slightly blurry cell phone photos so you can see some of what was there.
