ChiLUG – Brickworld – Chicago 2017

What does ChiLUG stand for? The easiest answer is to say the Chicago Area Lego Users Group. It’s what their name is. Who are they exactly? ChiLUG was founded in 2012 and shares Lego building with their community. Their mission? “To design, build, and display diverse and unique LEGO creations, and share our building techniques and ideas with the world.” according to their President, John Thornton.

When you get right down to it ChiLUG means a lot of different things like most LUG groups. ChiLUG is a home for some, a learning experience, a hobby, time away from the mundane, a place to discuss Legos, a time to build, family time together, and friendships getting put together much like the Lego pieces we all love. Elizabeth and I felt very welcome among them during our time at Brickworld Chicago. We spoke with Mike McDermott of ChiLUG and he gave us some insight into their builds and his love of constructing Batman scene landscapes. We looks forward to seeing ChiLUG and Mike again. Our first time meeting him and we felt right at home. They honored us by adding an Emunah Graphics engraved brick to their wall of unusual bricks. See if you can spot us in the thumbnail image! Thank you ChiLUG for all you do in your community.

Heroes Club LUG

Heroes Club LUG – Brickworld – Chicago 2017

What is Heroes Club LUG? Brickworld is always full of surprises and one such surprise this year to us was Heroes Club LUG. Heroes Club LUG is a LEGO fan club based out of China who appeared at Brickworld Chicago this year featuring amazing mech builds and a famous garden build. You can find pictures of their builds on our Facebook page or in the links of the video.

We were fortunate enough to meet Prince Jiang, Ambassador of the group, at Brickworld this year. He was excited to speak to us and tell us about Heroes Club LUG. Also, Prince Jiang gave us the best news any LEGO fan would love to hear. And you’re ALL invited! You might not be able to make it for 2017 but you can certainly try for 2018! What’s the news? Watch the video and let Prince Jiang tell you himself.

LEGO spans continents. That’s the beauty of the brick. There are international languages and then there are international toys. Language barriers dissolve when it comes to bricks. We were honored that Prince Jiang took the time out from the expo to speak with us that weekend. We look forward to seeing more of Prince Jiang and Heroes Club LUG at future Brickworld expos.
