The LEGO Convention Topic

Continuing the discussion from Birmingham Brickfair:

Well, here it is! This is the place to discuss any LEGO-related cons, big or small, you've attended. Got any funny stories? Found a great deal on a super-rare MISB BIONICLE G1 set? Seen a jaw-dropping MOC you want everyone here to see? Share/discuss away!

I live in Texas.

I might go to BrickFiesta, but it is not in San Antonio this year. It is far away (I can't remember where) so I will probably not go this year.

Unfortunate.

All of the "Brickfairs" are different events organized by the same convention (Brickfair, of course). New England, Virginia, Alabama, New Jersey, off the top of my head.

So I went to Brickfair NE today

Thought I would see @Chro, but he was doin SATs

I leave, my dad and I go to lunch

We're about to head home, but I want to check again to see if Chro is there

I head back in

Pass a guy in a wheelchair, wearing LoZ beanie and fingerless gloves

Do a double take, looks like a guy I know

but it can't be him, right?

check the bionicle booth again, still no chro (rip me)

see the wheelchair guy again, wonder if its the guy

nah, it can't be him, right?

go over one last time to the concessions stands

buy some masks, start walking towards the door

see the wheelchair guy yet again

okay, this guy looks really like him

want to go over to him, but that's super awkward

pass by him

no, i want to talk to him

turn around

pass by him again

Okay, gonna talk to him for real this time

turn around again

Walk up, say "Hey, is your name @OculusNuva? (i actually just said ted, but it works better for literary purposes) "

stares at me

"Are you Political_Slime?"

cue minds being blown


So yeah, I met this guy. We talked and took a picture:
