5th November 2018

BRICKLIVE Mythical Beasts at NEC2018

The UK’s largest LEGO® fan convention, BRICKLIVE Birmingham returned to the NEC for another exciting edition this November! The Company’s flagship event, BRICKLIVE Birmingham offered a rich variety of interactive experiences built around the creative ethos of the world’s most popular construction toy - LEGO bricks.

BRICKLIVE Birmingham guests were treated to brand new content, never seen at BRICKLIVE before! Mythical Beasts was a powerful presence that drove brick fans wild. With over 50 models and interactive experiences, this new tour brought the fascinating world of creatures from mythology to life using LEGO bricks.

Closing Pandora’s Box 

Inspired by legends from ancient Greece, the show revolves around the mythical Pandora’s Box which, when opened, will unleash a horde of trapped beasts upon the world. As the “heroes” of the experience, visitors must find all of the escaped creatures, to send them back into the box and seal them away.

Some Mythical Beasts – such as Valkaria the majestic Hippogriff, or the Owl of Athena – are allies, while others – from Asterion the vengeful Minotaur, and Vladdigor the fearsome four-headed Chimera, to a towering, seven-headed Hydra – are not as friendly.

All the other BRICKLIVE favourites were there to entertain the crowds including the ever popular brick-pits, our grafitti walls and the dedicated zones for Minecraft, City, Ninjago and other bricks.
