BrickWorld 2009 was for the most part, a great success. The real highlight was the Micropolis, and the Space display, for me. Space has died ever since Brickfest ’06, however, this year, Starfighters and SHIP’s ruled the half the tables of AMCP display. Castle was a little disappointing this year, but it was still cool since Peter brought along his castle. The vendors were expensive as usual. This year, there were not as many trains, which is a good thing and a bad thing for many people. All in all, a great convention with a staggering 556 attendees.

^That wasn’t even all of the SHIP’s. There were two more.

Now, all we have to do is start preparing for BrickWorld 2010. Next year, we have the whole hotel.

Chase Lewis (Vid’ on Flickr)’s most recent creation, this nifty little steampunk vehicle, is awesome (especially the bottom) and just called out for me to blog it.

Also: We’re still alive! Look! Alive!

This tank by Matt Hamann (known as Jaster on flickr) looks pretty incredible, and is probably blogworthy just as a build, and the extremely impressive walking feature is just icing on the cake. All in all, a great piece of work.

We’ve blogged SlyOwl a couple times in the past, but I just can’t help doing it again. His entry for the Agents of the Imperial Crown contest on Flickr is simply fantastic. That helicopter is especially cool, and thankfully, there’s a closeup on SlyOwl’s Brickshelf, linked on the Flickr photo.

They came. They saw. They were awesome.

Be sure to check out the generals and heavy soldiers, too.

Actually, as long as you’re here you should check out his hilariously anachronistic Imperial Shock Troopers.

Newright’s fighter plane has a sweet radial engine.

Steampunk Swamp Raid, originally uploaded by Sir Nadroj.

Celebrated builder Jordan “Nadroj” Schwartz displays an entry to be submitted to the “Agents of the Imperial Crown” contest held in the flickr steampunk group. Mimicking the Lego set 8632 Swamp Raid in the traditional steampunk style, the MOC incorporates some excellent masonry on the stone tower as well as some beautifully lush foliage.
