A few days ago I saw this on the newspaper...
So today, I packed my camera and there I went to the Jerónimos in Belém (Lisbon), to check this expo organized by CAMP LUG out.
On the way to the actual expo you could pass through the Navy Museum's coolest part, a new addition I hadn't seen since my last visit was this neat Hotchkiss 5 barreled, 37mm Revolver Cannon. I was not allowed to take a picture but there are plenty on the web.
I was actually hoping for more and better MOCs but there were some rare finds here! For starters, the old Navy cross in Lego. (sorry for changes in light and reflections, not much I could do about it)
A replica of the museums entrance.
Replica of the Marquês de Pombal statue downtown.
Reconstruction of an old ship set.
Typical coast-line fortress.
This was one of my favorites, a portuguese caravel conquering unknown lands and establishing a "Padrão", the explorers unaware of the tribal threat.
Old school 80s-90s boat sets.
The first Lego ships, the Blue and Red Imperials and the legendary big Pirate Ship.
The awesome Queen Anne's Revenge Set, lovely ship.
The infamous Black Pearl Set.
And the great Imperial Flagship.
Next we had this yellow Ancient Trireme.
Obligatory Sailor Boy.
Then there was the AquaZone dio.
And of course, the usual Lego Sea-side City.
The gem of this expo was the display of the very first Lego products, from the wooden toys to the first plastic bricks.
Through out the whole visit, I had a constant thought in my mind. "This would make an awesome Brikwar." Seriously, imagine something like a pirate raid of the fort or of the city.
Hope you guys enjoyed these pics.
