This year tiny tanks with rotating gun turrets will be making their way to BrickFair with me! These are the new-for-BrickFair Special Edition Mini-Kits. The kits include 20 LEGO Modulex pieces, include 2 studless bricks and a rotating turntable!
Yes! It’s that time again already! Come join us this weekend in Raleigh, NC for LEGO fun! MiniBricks Madness will be there displaying some Modulex MOCs and will be in the vendor area for you to see our Modulex history archive and buy some of your very own Modulex (including exclusives that can only be found at the LEGO festivals we participate in)!
Found this terrific Brick House created by YVD with her Modulex® collection. Great job. Notice the profile pieces used for the shutters. She also has a tile floor in the entryway. I am hoping that YVD (I’m just using her online name for now) comes by and gives us some comments about her building. Check out her other Modulex® items on her flickr photostream (a burger restaurant and an ice cream parlour). In addition to Modulex® MOCs, she has some terrific MOCs created with standard LEGO®.
Recently I found a LEGO Modulex fan who goes by the handle SlyOwl (on the Eurobricks forum) who wrote a paper on the history of LEGO Modulex and the demise of the bricks for architecture modeling. He has graciously given me permission to post his paper here. The information in the paper is interesting and I hope it will spark some more people to come out of the woodwork and help us put together more of the timeline and history of the Modulex story. Enjoy!

“The Doors of Durin,” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s illustration in The Fellowship of the Ring. This mosaic is made entirely of LEGO Modulex. The black background derives its geometry and texture from both matte and glossy black tiles, sized 1×1 to 4 x 4. The “drawing” is a layer of trans-clear over Pastel Blue. First displayed this weekend (May 5-8) at BrickMagic 2011 (Raleigh, NC)

During the first weekend in May, we’ll be in Raleigh, NC, at BrickMagic 2011 with lots of LEGO Modulex on display and for sale. Will you be there? We’ve put together a special edition mini-kit for the goodie bag that exhibitors will receive. We’ll also have some of the mini-kits available for purchase during the public hours.
Box full of completed kits for BrickMagic exhibitors' goodie bags.
