Angel of Redemption

Along with keeping the group up to speed with news and updates, I’d like to start showcasing those LEGO creations that stand apart from the masses, not just exclusively from our LUG, but from all over the world.  I know there are plenty of other amazing blogs out there, but we can have our say too.

It only seems appropriate to start with this beautiful tribute to Nnenn, Cole Blaq’s ‘Angel of Redemption’.   I’m a fan of the great parts usage and color scheme, but what I like best of all is the black canopy …not very minifig friendly.

Meeting THIS Saturday

Join us this Saturday, April 17, 2010 at the North Tempe Multigenerational Center at 1:30.  This month’s draft set will be 7570 The Ostrich Race.  The inventory can be seen here.  Make sure to use the poll to let us all know how many sets we’ll be drafting.

Bricks By The Bay!

If you love LEGO and happen to be in the Bay Area this weekend, be sure to stop by Bricks By The Bay’s public exhibition on Sunday between 10am and 4pm at the Silicon Valley Marriott in Fremont, CA.

Ain’t No Foolin’

I will be making some updates to the site in the upcoming weeks in attempt to make it more useful and maybe drive some traffic through this ghost town!

Cactusbrick January Meeting

We’re meeting again this January 16th at the North Tempe Multi-Generational Center.

1555 N. Bridalwreath Street
Tempe, AZ 85281

Note: If you’re new, the center is *South* of Marigold, not north as Google’s map shows.

We will be doing a parts draft of the Lego 5982 “Smash ‘n Grab” Space Police set. There will also be a building competition for 18/19th century style plantation / country mansion. The prize is only bragging rights, but if you’re so inclined, feel free to create and bring an entry!
