Event: PhLUG Brickxhibit2015 / Abrickadabra Lego Convention

Welcome to Brickstories' coverage of the Philippine Lego Users Group's (PhLUG) Brickxhibit2015 and Abrickadabra Lego convention.

Me and my hon Apple decided to break out our twin Lego backpacks for this amazing adventure and matching Lego shirts to boot.

Brickxhibit2015 is ongoing until May 3 and features MOCs (My Own Creations or what adult fans of Lego call their custom kits)  from most of PhLUG's great builders.

Once you've entered Resorts World's Newport Mall you are immediately greeted by a huge "I Love Lego" sign built out of a lot of red bricks.  The letters were made by Revjon Oblea with the bricks coming free from the Lego group itself.

After that it's a ton of Lego displays made by the talented sub interest groups (SIGs) of PhLUG.

The sigs are composed of (in order of display): PhLUG Mech (which used to be known as PhLUG MOC), Urban Builders, Force Legion, Kingdoms,  Garage, Armored Division, Starfleet and Minifigures.

Also among the displays are works of Team PMS (PhLUG's all-female build team) and a couple of other awesome moccers like Arthur Tanseco (Voltes V) and the Hope Christian Lego robotics team of David Ang.
