The TAZ-Brick Collectors Club are happy to announce that a new name for the annual event has been chosen being Brixhibition.
Brixhibition 2012 is set to be bigger than ever with the dates set as a three day event which starts on Friday the 16th and runs throughout the weekend of the 17th and 18th of September.
The venue is bigger too with the Lions Club of Glenorchy (City) working hard to ensure that the Moonah Arts Centre could proudly host the very popular event.
In a bid to attract the younger community of LEGO enthusiasts to display at Brixhibition 2012 it has been decided that the Friday the 14th of September time slot of 10.00am to 5.00pm will be specifically catering for boy and girls as after all the event is aimed at attracting kids to come along and see what can be built and created from the famous bricks from this part of Australia and the world !!!
See you there !!!

A couple of weeks ago on the 21st & 22nd January the 2012 Brickvention was held in the Melbourne Town Hall. As well as the LEGO models on display, there was a LEGO shop where you could buy LEGO sets to bring home and a pile of LEGO bricks so you could build your own models. Roaming around was a group of Star Wars characters that could have only been from the 501st Legion.
This year you could buy one of only 150 exclusive Brickvention 2012 sets. The model of Melbourne’s historical trams sold for $200 AUD.
Here are some photos taken on the Saturday:

The 1st Hobart Brick Expo was a LEGO display in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia organised by the TAZ-Brick Collectors Club.
Below are some photos of the event taken by Jawa Pro.
On the Saturday there was 500 visitors, on the Sunday there was 1000!
Check out some time-lapse footage of the event. (1 picture per minute.)
Sure enough, shortly after it made the local newspaper!
