Never let it be said that we here at The Brick Show does not provide an equal coverage to all news and special events of import to the LEGO fan community, wherever they may be. Aside from happenings on both sides of the Atlantic, we also look to the Pacific.
In the Philippines, the local LEGO fandom organization Philippine LEGO Users Club (PhLUG) is organizing an event next month that is being billed as the biggest LEGO fan gathering and exhibition in that country this year. This is the AKBRICKADABRA 2018, to be held at Makati City in Metro Manila.
As is the standard with LEGO fan events such as these, the ABRICKADADBRA convention is planned to have a major MOC showcase, with PhLUG’s various builder teams working to design over a hundred LEGO MOCs for exhibition. This primary display will be joined by those of invited guest LEGO builders.
But there’s more in store for visitors and enthusiasts to the ABRICKADABRA 2018. In addition to the LEGO display, there will be contests such as MOC building competitions and LEGO videogames, a raffle with LEGO set prizes, and even a children’s play area and workshop to encourage their LEGO interest.
For buyers and collectors, the convention will also bring together a selection of choice LEGO deals for rare and uncommon product items. Both LEGO’s official Philippine distributor LAJ Marketing and highly-regarded resellers from the Manila area will be offering some sweet discounts and deals for sets, minifigures, rare bricks, etc.
The ABRICKADABRA 2018 Philippine LEGO Fan Convention will run for two days in the weekend, from May 26 to 27 (Saturday-Sunday), at the Century City Mall in Makati.
