Digg It! Battlestar Galactica in LEGO: Vipers, Raptors (pics)

Who says Star Wars gets to have all the LEGO-fun? At BrickCon (a gathering for adults who still play with LEGO) in Seattle last October, LEGO maven Ryan Wood (ME :O) organized the first Battlestar Galactica (BSG) Viper fly-in, and look at the awesome result.

Belated

It's been a long time since I updated this blog. Sorry! The perennial excuse is that life's just been busy.

So what sparked the need for this update?

The BSG Display is getting some major attention recently, and I thought I should document it.

The high point for me was getting on the scifi.com/battlestar page:
Scifi.com/battlestar

The Battlestar page on Scifi.com links to this dvice article on the display, which links to my Mocpage (?!) and Gizmodo, who got the original story from Brothers-Brick.

This was the most awesome way to end a really bad day I was having last week. I'm prouder than ever of everyone in ChiefLUG who helped make the display shine, and Katie for not only putting up with a 7-foot hangar in our living room, and Lego all over the house, but for her mosaic contribution.

Stay tuned for updates about upcoming ChiefLUG projects, which may be even more epic in scope than the Battlestar display.

MicroBricks

Friends pointed me to this MicroBricks post last week highlighting the micro fleet in conjunction with the Galactica mosaic in the BrickCon display.



I really dropped the ball when it came to the micro section of the display, and nearly all credit for what we had there goes to Kevin Blocksidge for bringing microscale models of different ships from the fleet, as well as Adrian for bringing his micro Movers. I had wanted to do a much larger micro display, but just never got around to organizing it because I was so busy building the hangar.

The Battlestar Display

At long last, I present the Battlestar Display that ChiefLUG put on at BrickCon 2008 in Seattle last weekend!

Don's AWESOME video of the display (and a Viper flyby!)


And we won BEST IN SPACE!


The whole thing turned out way better than I imagined, and I'm sad that the weekend flew by so fast. A massive thanks to everyone who brought a Viper, a Raptor, a Raider, a Colonial Movers (there's 3 of you!), hangar space, figures, or a mosaic (love you honey!) We had 35 smaller vehicles all told, many more than I imagined when I first put out my announcement about the ChiefLUG initiation.

I don't know if we can top it, but there will certainly be more big ChiefLUG projects in the future, and you haven't seen the last of my hangar.

Post-Con Wrapup coming soon!

I'm nearly finished uploading and organizing all the BrickCon photos from this past weekend, and am preparing a post detailing the BSG display we put on. It was epic in every sense of the word, and it will never happen again.

A teaser:
All in a row
