BrickCan 2017 - LEGO Public Exhibition

BrickCan is finally here after a year long wait and I checked out the public exhibition today which had tons of amazing LEGO builds on display. It was amazing and awe-inspiring to see the creativity and what you can do with a box of LEGO bricks. I'm definitely going to be opening up some more sets to build this weekend! Check out some of cool builds below! 


There was a pretty large winter scene that I really liked! There were a lot of people around so I couldn't take a full picture but here are some parts of the build.

The lit up ice rink was very cool!

The Vancouver 2010 Olympic cauldron!
The Burrard St bridge.
I thought this Victoria bus build was very nice and detailed!
Arch of Constantine. I really liked this one.

Some miniature versions of modulars that LEGO has out.




The steam clock in Gastown.
You will be assimilated; resistance is futile.
I really like any LEGO builds with trees so this one was probably my favourite.

For Game of Thrones fans - Pyke Castle! If you look closely, you can spot a banner with the house Greyjoy sigil.
There were some amazing LEGO mosaics as well. They're all made of 1x1 tiles. Amazing!



One of the fan favourites was this house from Up.
Jurassic World.
I really like the use of LEGO croissants in this build!
Batman and Robin to the rescue!
Dragon dance.
The Fallout Shelter was a huge hit last year. Each person gets to build one scene and it gets put together. The lights make this build stand out and it's so interesting to see the creativity behind each scene.


This aquarium scene was very cool.
I only just learned about Fabuland this year so it was nice to see a display using these characters.



There were a lot of different steampunk and mech builds.


A grayscale modular build.
Canada 150 in the flower bed. This is pretty amazing!
There were lots of vendors selling LEGO and LEGO related products, including engraved bricks, jewelry, soap, pillows and art. I didn't end up getting anything today, but I really enjoyed looking at the minifigures for sale.

Classic space.
Star Wars.
At the end of the session, any child with a ticket can get a free bear build. It's very cute!


BrickCan will be at the River Rock Casino for one more day so grab your tickets now! A ticket is valid for a 2 hour time slot to look at all the builds and check out the vendors.
