Nice to meet you Ron. Don't think that you can't come to a meeting due to location. We have many different members all over the place, and we rotate the meeting locations. I live in Allentown. Even if you do all your LEGO stuff at home, its still good to come out and meet some of us. You can always get building ideas and tips. Starting on Black Friday we will be having a LEGO train display running at America On Wheels in Allentown. Would be good to have you come by and check it out or even help out if you like.

Well hope to hear more from you in the future. Feel free to pop into the chat sometime and talk.

Star Wars Lego Lover!

Post  SWLegoLover on Sun Jan 23, 2011 12:08 pm

Hello All!
I've recently decided to truly embrace my love of LEGO and share it with the world! (Or at least my local community.) I have amassed quite a collection of Star Wars Lego minifigures (over 300) and I don't even own them all! (That still amazes me.) I buy and build the smaller Star Wars sets and then don't mess with them so I don't have a lot of bricks available for building.

I have started to use MLCad to design Lego creations. It's helpful to know just how many and what kind of bricks I need to actually build it later.

Hoping to attend BrickFair in DC in August.

Hi Nicki. Welcome. Perhaps you could make it to one of our meetings near Philly before BrickFair. We have meetings the first Saturday of each month, with a few exceptions due to Holidays or Brick Events.

I didn't know there were that many Star Wars Mini-figs. I'd love to see some of the unusual ones if you wouldn't mind bringing part of your collection to a meeting.

If you've never been to a "Brick Event" before you will love BrickFair.

Specifically, I'll be hosting the next meeting in Lansdowne on February 5th. I have some rare Star Wars figs (but I've never counted them).

Greetings to AJ and USABricks. Welcome to the club and the boards.

BrickFair near D.C. may be closer and is now larger than BrickWorld in Chicago, but IMHO BrickWorld is a bit better in the way things are run and presented. Yet both shows are great and well worth the time and travel to attend. I haven't missed either since they began.

Hopefully we'll see one or both of you at a meeting soon. It is a great opportunity to meet other people who live (relatively) close to you who enjoy the same hobby. There is also a good deal of "show & tell" of things people bring. Some are "works in progress" and others are completed. We share contruction techniques and often riff off of each other with ideas for other things to build. So please feel free to bring what ever you have to share with the group at any meeting.

Future meetings

Post  SWLegoLover on Tue Jan 25, 2011 4:31 pm

Hi All,
I do hope to start attending monthly meetings shortly. Alas! I shall be visiting a cousin during the February meeting. So perhaps March or April will work out better. Love the positive attitude presented here and will be looking for ideas in making what I have in my head turn out all right with LEGO.

As to how I "found" you all, I was surfing the net looking for Lego stuff and came upon LUGnet so I looked up PA and there you were. It took a little while to get organized enough to actually join, but now here I am.

Thanks,
Nicki

And the meetings usually last all day. Some of us stay late or at least until we get kicked out. Laughing

It is not unusual for people to bring some refreshments of various sorts. Although I won't be at this coming meeting I usually bring carrots, dip, and soda. Others may bring cheese, chips, beef stick or balogna, sodas, cupcakes, whatever...

It certainly isn't required and nobody keeps track but most people tend to bring something at least some of the time. It all balances out.

I hope you all have a great meeting and I want to hear all about it.

Hi.

Post  JMJ_001 on Tue Feb 01, 2011 8:23 pm

Hi, everyone.

My name is John and I lived in Brookhaven, PA, which is a suburb right across from Chester. I have been a LEGO fan from as far back as I can remember. And I have enjoyed the following themes throughout my brief time with LEGO; Technic, Star Wars, BIONICLE, and Town. I also have some interest in LEGO Mindstorms from my time as a programmer on a team for FLL (FIRST LEGO League).

In addition, I have only been involved in one small AFOL thing and that was providing two mosaic pieces for the BIONICLE Mosaics at last year's BrickFair. So yeah, I don't have much experience with AFOL community and I hoping that by joining this group I can change that and improve my building skills with the brick.

Uh...Where it going to take place exactly? Just wondering.

But yeah, if the weather is not bad and it isn't that far of trip for me, I might be able to attend the meeting.

Havertown. Hopefully Chris Edwards who is hosting makes an announcement soon as none of us know his address since he moved into his new house.

My new house is actually in Lansdowne, PA but it's very close to Havertown. I just sent the announcement to Cale and Joel, so it should be in everyone's mailboxes soon!

Hey all, I'm Jake Savage and I live up in eastern PA, probably 40 minutes or an hour from the border with Ohio, my favorite Lego colors to build with are the Dark colors, as well as pearl gold, and any pearl color really. Some of my favorite builds are airplanes, usually fantasy types, and my main inspirations are Hayao Miyazaki, anything dieselpunk, and WWII/the 1930's. I hope I will be able to attend at least one meeting this year, if not the three, as I do not have my own car yet, just having turned 18! Also, I hope to be able to get to know everyone in this community well, and learn a lot to improve my talents with the brick!

Well, that is pretty much all about me for now, so Jake Savage signing out.

Hi Jake, nice to meet you! I just have one question...
what part of Eastern PA is that close to Ohio? Compared to that, the rest of us are in the "Far East."

Welcome guys. Since I haven't seen it posted anywhere, just an FYI, the meetings start at 11am (posted), but can tend to go into the evening hours (if the host allows). The reason I'm telling you this; I was a newbee last year and was quite suprised as to how long meetings can go. Anyway, you are invited to come and stay as little or as long as you like, not everybody stays for the duration, myself included.

Hope to see you there.
