Default Brickvention

So for those in Melbourne 'Brickvention' is on this weekend, "australia's premier fan run convention". I was thinking of heading down tomorrow but it seems to be sold out! Popular stuff... did anyone go today or has anyone been to similar things before?

I have tickets for tomorrow. I have been many times, and it is quite impressive.

I haven't been to Brickvention in years since the last one I went to was underwhelming. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of displays this time around.

There was a Transformers display which I took horrible photos of. No amount of automatic image stabilisation can compensate for carrying a toddler in the other arm.

We had a chat to that guy. All of them actually transform. He is working on a better Bumblebee as that is the one most people ask about.

He is also working on a Megatron the same size as that tall Optimus.

The Constructicons can form Devastator but he said it is really top heavy.
