On December 7 and 8 last, the first HispaBrick Magazine® Event was held at the Museu de la Ciència i de la Tècnica de Catalunya in Terrassa. Its 100m2 of exhibition, games, contests, conferences and projections attracted over 5300 people during the two days of the event.

Activities
The younger visitors could enjoy the play area with LEGO® pieces where they could let their imagination run wild.... and their parents’ as well. They could also participate in a search for giant minifigs throughout the museum or the contests in the exhibition area. There were prizes to be won in each activity. At the auditorium, visitors could enjoy watching videos about the history of LEGO and about the manufacturing process of our beloved bricks. In the conference area there were presentations on building techniques or on robotics, presented by our MCP Jetro (in a packed room).

Exposición LEGOThe exhibition
Visitors could enjoy an exhibition of diverse LEGO® materials, among which the presence of several early design pieces from the for LEGO elements LEGO design department stood out, as it was the first time these were publicly exhibited. Once inside, in addition to visiting the installations of the museum, there was the exhibition of the material presented by the members of the LUG. Some outstanding pieces were the Hoth, medieval and Hobbiton displays which were built using the MILS system, or the Hornburg in Helm’s Deep that drew attention due to its sheer size. A large City diorama with both vintage and new sets (together, but not mixed), Star Wars™ (including the Imperial Hangar), Panzerbricks (with more than 50 tanks and military vehicles), Space Classic, Halo and a football stadium made up the largest part of the exhibition for the little ones. For the older ones there were also the latest Technic and MINDSTORMS models. As a novelty, on Saturday the new Horizon Express from the LEGO Creator Expert theme was presented in the best possible way: integrating it in the City diorama.
