Block Con – Hull 2017 Wrap Up

It was a scorching Sunday, but despite the heat, we had a fantastic day at Block Con – Hull 2017. Almost 1500 of you braved the heat to see some of the incredible creations our network of AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) had to show you.

With representatives from at least 6 of the country’s top LEGO® User Groups, the event was well supported with over 35 AFOLs in attendance, and what a variety of displays we had from them. If you missed it, don’t worry, we have loads of pictures from the show in our Flickr Gallery, which you can find at

As always, during the show, we run a bit of friendly competition for our AFOLs, and pit them against one another for a chance to win one of our highly coveted event trophies from one of the following categories: Critics’ Choice, which is carefully selected by an independent critic from within the LEGO® Fan community; AFOL Award, which is voted on by all of the AFOLs in attendance at the show; and the Public Vote, which is voted on by you, the public.

This year’s winners were:

Critics Choice – Wacky Racers vehicles, by Martin Redfearn.
AFOL Award – Viking Display, by Chris McKnight and the BrickBox Hull team.

and finally

Public Vote – ‘The Olympics’ display, by Neil Burgess

Thank you all for your votes. We entered each and every one of the voting slips we received into a prize draw, in which we selected 1 person at random to win a mystery box of goodies, courtesy of Stackable Toys. We can now announce that the winner is Six-year-old Corey Cummins, who voted for the Ninjago Temple to win, so congratulations to you, and we will be in contact soon.

So that’s it for another year, but we hope we’ll see you again next year, and in the meantime, enjoy the pictures!
