When Tommy, Joe Fletch and I stumbled upon the autograph hall in the basement of the Javitz Center on Day #1 of Comic Con, we found a pleasant surprise. Nestled among the aisles set up to usher fans towards their pop culture icons for autographs was an insane display of Lego's unlike anything I had ever seen. Now I have seen many of the life size 'Statues' made out of Lego on display at various Toys R Us stores and even at the Lego Booth on the main floor of the con (see our picture sets posts)... those are pretty cool! But those were nothing compared to the layout put forth by I LUG NY. I Lug NY stands for Lego Users Group and these guys are no f'n joke... they set up a massive three sided display featuring recreations of tons of scenes from Pop Culture & comics. The attack on Mordor & The Shire from Lord of the Rings, The headquarters of the Legion of Doom & the Hall of Justice from Super Friends, The clock tower from Back to the Future, The portal from The Avengers, The X Mansion (complete with Blackbird coming out of the Basketball court), The Tardis floating about, The Death Star Trench scene & Hoth from Star War... the display was downright amazing. Click after the jump for detailed photos and a cool video shot by Joe Fletch that does this impressive display little justice due to how awesome it really was....
