BRICKFast, the regular early morning meet up was held for the 19th time at Jollibee Greenmeadows C5 Libis Quezon City. It is the Philippine LEGO Users Group’s (PhLUG) first event to open the year 2016.

Over 200 members and guests attended the crowded event which started at 8:00 am — some members arrive as early as 6am to get good parking space. The second floor is blocked off for PhLUG’s exclusive use with rooms dedicated for registration, trading and display.

Josiah Samaniego, PhLUG’s Master Curator, arranges the display area where original creations, this time, from Mech, Garage, Technicle and Kingdoms take center-stage. Asked how the display is planned – Josiah quips that everything is done even before the previous Brickfast is finished.

Announcements on the year’s events were made as well as discussions for upcoming displays was presided on by PhLUG’s Ambassador. More importantly, the merger of two Special interest Groups — Mech Only Creations and Starfleet was announced. The merger resulted in the creation of PhLUG’s newest SIG — Sci-fi. It is meant to cater to any theme under the fiction category.

BRICKFast 19 is a slice of what is planned to be an exciting year ahead for members of PhLUG.
