PhLUG's Brickfast 24

Saturday was a very busy day for me and the wife. We had to attend two events: PhLUG's Brickfast 24 and AsiaPOP Comicon 2016. We were actually excited since we've been waiting for the weekend to come because of these. Our day started early when we headed out to Jollibee Greenmeadows for PhLUG's Brickfast.

We arrived early at the venue and we immediately headed for the display area since Garage, PhLUG's SIG for car enthusiasts, was hosting two competitions for the event. The City Scale Build Challenge and the Wacky Race contest. Ava and I wasted no time taking pictures of the cool MOCs of the competitors for the City Scale Build Challenge. 

I tried to take a picture of all the entries for  the contest. Check them out!

Since we had to leave early for the Con, we were not able to see the Wacky Race contest. Fortunately, I was able to take a picture of the massive race track. I want one!

I think the most important aspect of last Saturday's Brickfast was our MOCcer's Forum. Lead by our ambassador, Piper Protacio, the meeting covered what's in store for PhLUG in the coming months. There are  a couple of events in need of PhLUG's MOCs coming soon. Guidelines for this year's LUGBULK were also discussed.

A brief talk was also given by one of PhLUG's Sci-fi builders, Josiah Samaniego, on how to do modular terrain pieces, which could be linked together when building MOCs. This is useful especially for group builds. By following specific dimensions and textures, builders could work independently of each other then combine these modular pieces together to form one big build. This would also reduce the number of pieces needed by each of the builders. I'm  actually interested in trying this out in my builds because I really want to learn terrain work for upcoming MOCs for the blog.

Check out how this technique is implemented in this hallway build. The corridor is actually composed of three wall pieces joined together. Clever, right?

To end, here are several other MOCs displayed at Brickfast 24.

Will be writing about my AsiaPOP Comicon 2016  experience soon. Stay tuned for that. Happy Sunday, folks! Till next entry!
