    Skærbæk Fan Weekend 2018

    It is over! The past weekend the Skærbæk Fan Weekend 2018 took place in Denmark with more AFOLs than ever. 865 AFOLs and TFOLs representing 75 recognized communities from 27 different countries participated and almost 500 MOCs were on display - this is a record and it was so much fun and mind blowing to meet you all, talk to you, see your fantastic creations and get all the input from you - short - it was an awesome but as always way too short weekend. A huge thank you to the SFW steering group and all their helpers - you did so well to welcome all and make everything happen and of course a huge thank you to all of you who displayed MOCs and participated - it could not be done without you. We had an awesome Saturday evening AFOL dinner as well as a great Ambassador meeting with very good discussion and very valued feedback. So if you like to join a weekend full of great fun, networking and great company from all over the world mark you calendar September 27 - 30 2019. See you there!

    Svend Erik Saksun

    It is with the deepest regrets that I need to share the sad news that Sven Erik Saksun passed away last Friday loosing his long fight against cancer. Svend Erik has been a long term Ambassador, a very active and known member of the worldwide AFOL community, a great supporter for the LEGO Group and last but not least a dear friend. His death is a tremendous loss and our thoughts are with his family in these hard times. The funeral will be conducted this Friday - 14th of September 2018 - in Kundby Kirke (Kundby Church), Denmark at 11.00 am. Farewell my friend!

    LEGO House documentary

    Hi all - I have exciting news to share. The LEGO House was under its way for 7 years and has tickled the curiosity of creative LEGO fans all along. The process was followed by a camera crew and has resulted in a great documentary that is now airing globally on NETFLIX. Some of you might already have seen it at closed events. But now it is out there for everybody. From 15th June you can discover the fascinating LEGO spirit manifested in the ultimate LEGO building on all NETFLIX servers globally. The original idea behind the LEGO House came from Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen – a dream for the LEGO Group and for the town of Billund. A unique journey into the making of a house built on a foundation of dreams. This is a construction diary unfolding the endless possibilities of the LEGO brick. The concept has all the way been to build a LEGO House which would offer the most amazing hands-on experiences and inspire the guests to embrace creativity. This includes a one of a kind architectural idea by BIG and Bjarke Ingels, a restaurant that serves the food by robots, 25 million LEGO bricks and dedicated staff that tries, fails and revises ideas in order to reach the company motto: Only the best is good enough. You can watch the trailer here:

The mosaic consists of almost 2700 32x32 baseplates and measures 12x14 meters. It will be build with support by the public as well as LEGO and LEGO House employees and the Guinness Book representatives will measure next Wednesday is the current record has been broken. You can find more info on the LEGO House website https://www.legohouse.com/en-gb/whats-on/pinse Se attached pictures from the LEGO staff building day (even our CEO Niels came to build a plate). Fingers crossed for Wednesday - I will keep you updated!

    LEGO House AFOL activities - save the date

    This is a LEGO House invention so rather a mini inside tour. It has nothing to do with the tours we organized or is the reason why we stopped organizing them.
