This strip features two new characters to the site, a custom Black Canary mini-fig and Hawkeye that I bought from Milton train works at MCFC. He’s the figure I alluded to in my Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention post. but I swapped the head for this joke.

Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention with Bricks & Heroes.


It’s been over a week since the Memphis Comic and Fantasy Convention. I finally have time to blog on the con. This was the third year of the con but the first time they had a track dedicated to LEGO. This was also the first LEGO event I’ve attended.

We went to sell my toy photography prints. Once we were set up I got to walk around a bit. The first purchase I made was from the Citizen Brick booth. I knew they mini-fig babies so I had to get one to commemorate my son’s birth. I also picked up a zombie heady and a victim torso.

As previously posted in Zombie Invasion and Magneto’s first job, I got a few custom pieces from EclipseGRAFX. The Zombie fighter is one of the coolest things at the show.

EclipseGRAFX mini-figs

I bought a few Mini-figs from Milton Train Works. I got a series 2 life guard, series 8 Santa and another figure from a set that I don’t own. It’ll appear in a future post. With the purchase of the life guard I now have at least one mini-fig from every series but #1

Brickmania toys had some great looking kits. and a Bikini Bottom MOC. The LEGO group was there but as display only they didn’t have products for sale. But they did have a LEGO Batman comic book. It was game trailer in a printed form. brickmania kits

There were also vendors selling various LEGO sets and mini-figures. Since it was part of a comic convention, there were several places selling comic books, toys, t-shirts and geek stuff. There were also some panels, concerts, and short films.

We had a lot of fun and hope to make it back. More pictures on my site, RenaissanceFairePictorial.com

Coolest costume at the convention.

They are Custom LEGO pieces designed and created by eclipseGrafx. The cans are printed pieces and even have a pull tab printed on top.
