Hailed as the biggest comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest, Emerald City Comicon (ECCC) will showcase once again some of the greatest fan-oriented and comics-focused exhibits this year from April 7 to 10, 2016 at Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington. Last 2015’s ECCC convention saw a legion of 80,000 fans who attended its exhibits, programs, and panel discussions by the country’s most creative artists and writers.

Unfortunately, as of this writing, ECCC’s website already shows that tickets for this year’s convention are already sold out save that for Thursday or the first day of the convention which is April 7. So if you’re planning to head off to this annual event, better visit their site right now and purchase the Thursday ticket while it is still available. They only sell tickets online by the way.

However, if you happen to be one of those who are fortunate to have bought their tickets earlier, be sure to drop by at one of the most awaited exhibits at the ECCC. One particular fan favorite in the convention is the Brick Nation Exhibit – a 700 square foot area devoted to LEGO Builders. Various LEGO User Groups (LUGS) will be showcasing their exhibits at Brick Nation and among them are the very talented builders from SEALUG or the Seattle LEGO Users Group, SquatchLUG which is organized by adult LEGO builders from the parts of northwest Washington State, with members from Whatcom, Skagit, Snohomish, and King counties; and the ArchLUG that focuses on architectural and Castle-themed buildings.

Check out some of their creations from previous ECC Conventions.
