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.

Fascinating race, the Weeping Angels. The only psychopaths in the universe to kill you nicely. No mess, no fuss, they just zap you into the past and let you live to death. The rest of your life used up and blown away in the blink of an eye. You die in the past, and in the present they consume the energy of all the days you might have had, all your stolen moments. They’re creatures of the abstract. They live off potential energy.

Bird Boy Kristian excellently illustrates his (quirky and brilliant) vision of a futuristic classroom. I’m especially liking the chalkboard.

Barney puts a creative twist on the Renaissance Fair concept to make this pair of dioramas depicting the an anachronistic rollercoaster built at a medieval carnival – an alternative source for Dwarfish income as well as an alternate use for their excavation skills. Be sure to check out the other half of the scene on flickr, perhaps built together for Classic-Clastle’s Job Müller contest.
