Okay, time to start sharing. What is everyone else bringing?

* Pizza Night on the Death Star?
* Official modular town buildings?
* Wind farm? We don't have the mains power to run them, but just the hillside sans towers as landscape is impressive.
* Moonbase modules?
* Spaceships? Which?
* Roadplates?

And because they're the latest-coolest on the shelves:
* Any of the "Avengers" or "Lord of the Rings" sets?
* Monster Hunters?

Anybody want to build one of these? HBO's Game of Thrones is a big deal right now (so I'm told -- I took the trouble to view one episode on my trans-Pacific flight; the low-contrast LCD screen didn't do the cinematography justice) so we might want a shout-out.

I expect I'll be bringing a lot of spare Duplo and System brick -- I've got the containers and cargo space to do so -- to infill things as needs become apparent.

On Sat I can bring my blue and white monorail, and my blue crater plates, if no one else is bringing monorail. Microscale "attack of the snalians", snail with ray gun, peaceful battle droid army ( they have flowers and stuff like that) IF you want town buildings, I have cafe corner, fire brigade, grand emporium, pet shop, and of course snail emporium. I will only bring these if you really want them. I have some small stock Star Wars ships like land speeder, m falcon, atat etc. some alien conquest stock sets too. alien

Okay, time to start counting footprints and frontages. The provided tables are standard conference (60x30 inches), i.e., 6x3 10-inch 32-stud green baseplates. A rail loop is possible if the row of buildings is along the table's centerline (actually, having the train/trolley vanish behind the buildings might be interesting from the vantage of our younger visitors). Hmm - how do people integrate the Town Modulars with road plates? I have enough 8x16 smooth plates (from the ISD) to scratch-build a narrow road if necessary, then the front rank can be parkland.

KC:
* Cafe Corner - 32
* Fire Brigade - 32
* Grand Emporium - 32
* Pet Shop - 32
* Snail Emporium - ?

Phil:
* El Pollo Ladrillo - 8-24 (depending on config)
* Blue tower - 16-48 (ditto)
* Local branch of the Hall of Justice - 16

My Micro City is based on 10x10 parcels with 4-wide roads (still working out the details), so it (with the SDF-1 towering over the background, the Helicarrier over midtown, and the Armored Mega Space Eel winding through) so it can fit in 30x30 inches, easy. Maybe even 20x20. Anybody want to add a tower, church, rail station or convention center? I'm not using TwinLUG's Micropolis, but their Flickr pool might give you ideas.

I have a Town Hall and a tall Green Grocer, and 6 space vehicles which could each take up a baseplate.

I potentially have more things if Mike M. and I are able to sort that out.

OK, since you listed my town buildings, I guess you DO want them there Sat. I WILL need help bringing them in from the car. The snail Emporium also sits on a 32x32, and can be free standing, or in the row, or on an end. Blue monorail? yes? no? maybe?

Phil, you said you didn't want any space base unless they were specifically sci-fi related. They are all at Cale's and you are more than welcome to get them. I can not since I am still sick. There are however no standard classic space baseplates or crater plates. Both boxes are currently missing. We did not have them for BrickMagic either. I called a few members who may have had an idea where they could be, but no one knows. I will look into this more when I feel better. The wind farm doesn't go unless I do, you are welcome to use the turbines though. I can not invest another 4 months of my life rebuilding it again so if it breaks again, it would be solely my fault.

The baseplate fiasco is really bothering me as I feel responsible. I know they were in my care at some point but I've been all over the garage and they are not there and I have no idea where they could be.

I'll bring my Darth Vader Tie-Fighter set (out of production) and a new LOTR set (Attack on Weather Top, I think is the name).

So, I've completed the Helicarrier from The Super Hero Squad Show, the Interceptor from Green Lantern (oh, I am definitely putting this on Cuusoo -- it is very swooshable), and something for Men in Black III -- those conical rocket-seats seen in the TV ad. (I knew that drawer of silver elements would be handy, eventually.) Beyond that, MIB is easy -- have guys in black (fine, I'm using City Police torsos, since I don't know where I put my Indiana Jones tuxes) with sunglass-heads standing between a crowd of townspeople and townspeople with alien-heads. For a neuralyzer, I even had a spare silver lightsaber hilt to top with a red dome. But all of my BrickArms weapons are black, not silver.

Tomorrow morning: Must rearrange mega-eel, get micro-city in presentable condition, and finish Daleks. Also, print Green Lantern logo for Kilowogg semi-Miniland-figure. And face for Doctor Manhattan. (An all-medium-blue minifig. He's nekkid!)

Nate rented a car today to retrieve several tables-worth of moonbase assets from Cale's, and once I see the volume at-con, I have to decide how to transport them to Mike's post-expo.
