OK, back home after a really disastrous traintrip yesterday (I got stuck with three drunk 60 year old Swedes.. it was kind of a weird experience I can tell you!). As of now I am quite busy and can't put up all my pics, but here's a little teaser at least ;)

Image

To make a long story short I had a great time and I think the others did as well. I'll get back to you later with more complete accounts.

Sweet Picture! I'm getting a great mental picture of you all sitting there building, elbowing the kiddies out of the way. :) Glad it was a good experience.

I am intrigued by your train experience with the three drunks. I've had some "interesting" train experiences here in the US myself.

As Jonas said the weekend in Denmark was a success (apart from his train trip). At our hotel we built, exchanged techniques and cool know-its, showed off MOCs and sets alike, basically a lot of Lego activities :)

Of course we went to our Mecca (Legoland Billund, where it all began), and not only had a great day in the park (with sunny weather all day), we also looted the pick-a-brick shops and Lego Market, and I think we're all very satisfied with what we managed to get a hold of.

I found it very cool meeting some more CC members and being able to place a face to the avatar (in my head, people always look like their avatar until proven otherwise, most of you people look like Lego figs to me!)

Of course when we were just on our way to the Legoland exit, we ran into a big bin of brightly coloured basic bricks, surrounded by baseplates (and little kids)... How could we resist? More pictures of that coming up as soon as Maedhros has uploaded them ;)

That's pretty much how it went yeah. They kept taking all the good parts!

OK, here are some more pics. Mostly a lot of weirdness really, I'll get back to you with some more pics of the park itself when I get access to the computer for more than an hour at the time!

Here we are, after the PickABrick, waiting for the LEGO Market to open. (and what do you do if you have half an hour to kill and a bag full of LEGO, why you start sorting and building of course!)

Back at home contemplating the haul of today:

Image

And more of the bins of basic bricks...

Image

Image

Image

And the big question...

Image

Probably the most ambitious MOC ever built there:

The elder kiddos in action!

I think that's all for now. Like Seb said it was really nice to see some true human beings behind the usernames, not to mention actually getting to meet fellow AFOLs and build together. That was a first for me... and I want more ;)

(Oh yea, you have to wait for the pics to go public, it was much faster for me this way)

Well, having a 60 year old trying to sleep in my knee was disgusting rather than intriguing but I guess that's another story :P

That would be some $ 1700 :shock: (according to a quick search of the Web) Then again, I really have to see the US some day... and doing it while there is a Con going on is of course a good idea, however that's for some time when I have more money than now ;)

Looks like you guys had fun. Can you tell me who everyone is in this picture. I think Aliencat is on the far right but that's all I know.

Haha, this pic cracked me up. I look rather sinister there, don't I? :P

Hehe, sorry for the lame photoshop. I'm kinda in a hurry. And my picture didn't have the pants, so Seb, I've cloned yours. No hard feelings.
