ASR Brick Show

On 28 July, All Blocks LEGO User Group had an amazing day as we supported Aotea Sport and Recreation Association Centre and helped raise funds for Autism New Zealand.

This seven-minute video, produced by Aotea Sport and Recreation Association Centre, gives you a look at the show.

BrickScene

All Blocks member Richard Miller – along with Polina Pyjova – have set up BrickScene, a social media platform that uses YouTube, Instagram and Facebook.

In their words, BrickScene is, “a channel dedicated to all things LEGO, with a focus on the New Zealand community.”
