In a couple of weeks Bricks by the Bay, a AFOL convention and event, will descend on Fremont, CA.
The AFOL events require advanced registration and take place on April 9th and 10th. Sunday is open to the public for viewing with a small admission fee.
Mads Nipper,The Executive Vice President of Marketing & Products, and Steve Witt, LEGO Community Relations Coordinator and AFOL liaison, will be in attendance during the convention. This may mean new news from LEGO at the event!
What's in it for the minifig collector? It looks like BrickArms will be in attendance as a vendor, meaning an opportunity to get the goods without that pesky shipping and handling. Also, there will be a scratch and dent night at one of the local LEGO stores with opportunities for savings up to 50%. These will only be available to those who attend the AFOL convention on Friday and Saturday.
