TWINLUG was out in force at the 2015 MCBA ComicCon, held at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds, May 16 and 17. With an attendance of over 6000 people, lots of fans got a chance to check out some awesome LEGO creations.
The star of the show was our roughly 8×8′ medieval fantasy layout. With castles, dragons, wizards, dwarves, elves, and more, this was an eye-catching display and had lots of excellent little touches to be found if you looked close. Garth, Amanda, Brian, Ben, and Max did the majority of the display, with help from several other members.
Jeremy and Amanda both had impressive mosaics on display, and we had a table of spaceships, 5x minifigs, and other models by Matt, Roger, and more. Thanks to the MCBA for having us, and for providing some tasty food! We’ve already started planning our display next year!
TwinLUG is very proud to have been asked to display at the following upcoming events in the Minneapolis/St Paul area.

Recently there has been some talk about updating the Micropolis specification (last updated four years ago!) and so a discussion has been started in the Flickr Micropolis group for revising the specification to version 1.2. There is currently no timeline for when the new version might be published but we’ll be sure to mention here when it does.
