NEOLUG goes to Youngstown Comic Con


Thousands poured into the Covelli Center this past weekend, July 6&7, 2019. Fans dressed as their favorite character were invited to participate in a collaborative build mosaic: Jay & Silent Bob, in recognition of headliner Jason Mewes.

Many dressed as their favorite super hero took their picture with NEOLUG’s display of super heroes mosaics and scenes. Many visitors returned both days, and look forward to our return next year.

Remembering Arthur Gugick

Arthur Gugick, 59, was taken from this Earth on March 30, 2019.  Arthur started playing with LEGO at age 7, and attended his first convention in 2005 – BrickFair Virginia. There were about 125 AFOLs in attendance. Arthur has built hundreds of scale miniatures of global landmarks and detailed portraits of pop-culture icons using nothing but LEGO.  Arthur was responsible for the Taj Mahal build for the movie Taj (2011)  ‘For the Taj Mahal, I actually had to write my own computer software to help me make the dome,” Arthur shared in an interview posted 4 years ago.

Arthur was a beloved high school math teacher at Beachwood City Schools, and a member of NEOLUG. You can view his other works of art on his website.


The Lego Movie 2 Preview

NEOLUG was hosted by Cinemark Theaters in Valley View, Ohio to a preview of the new and exciting sequel:  The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part.

THe movie is full of witty gags, clever animation, unexpected cameos, and the usual heartwarming family lessons.  Come see your favorites, Emmet, Lucy, Unikitty, Benny, and meet some new ones, Rex, Queen Watevera Wa-Nabi, General Mayhem, and Banarnar.

NEOLUG had a number of creations on display, and the theater provided face painting, and balloon style minifigures.  The movie has full release on Friday, February 8, 2019. 

 

2018 Cuyahoga Fair Wrapup

This year we were at the Cuyahoga County Fair, in Berea Ohio, from Thursday – Sunday August 8 – 12. NEOLUG had as much fun as the nearly 250,000 fair visitors this year.

We had even more people show up this year to look at the wonders we created such as a mini Cuyahoga County Fair, Egypt, and other creations from the our member artists.  The miniaturization of Professor Bubblemaker’s Beautiful Bubble Ballet was a huge hit with both visitors and the professor himself.  To see more of our photos of the event, please visit our photo’s page

NEOLUG members build their own custom Brickheadz

NEOLUG’s April group meeting was comprised of fun, food, and best of all, playing with LEGO bricks. Using multiple copies of the Go Brick Me set, NEOLUG members built custom BrickHeadz for each other. The leftover pieces were also put to good use in a set draft.

Each member went home with a life-like (albeit somewhat blocky) version of themselves. Here’s EJ Bocan posing with his custom Brickheadz built by Ken Cefaratti.
