LIbrary-75

Yes, the Salt Lake County Library is turning 75. As part of the celebration, ULUG was asked to design an build a LEGO sculpture to celebrate, the result is this Dark Red and Gray “75” sprouting as it were from the pages of a book. If you want to see the sculpture in person, it is currently on Display at the Viridain Center of the West Jordan City Library

at the suggestion of one of our form members (Xarquar) we’re starting a new semi-regular feature spotlighting new some of the club members and their LEGO creations.

Today’s Member is Cody O. Cody is currently serving as the ULUG President. As a builder of ancient times most of his creation bring to life some aspect of medieval or prehistoric life.

Building on his love of the all thing medieval, CODY has taken the challenge of Building the Tower of Orthanic from the Lord of the Rings.

This massive black tower stands over 6′ tall and is a sight to behold. there is no lack of enthusiasm from the crowd when you see plastic at ti’s best. You too can see it in person this weekend at the upcoming hostler’s train show in Ogden this weekend.

I’m a sucker for a well built LEGO technic creation, especially those outside the box. the natural inclination is to make heavy machinery models, so when someone takes the standard LEGO system, and combines a motor and a few other bits to make something that isn’t a GBC module or a heavy equipment, I get excited, and when I get excited I post. so here is True Dimensions LEGO Ball Clock!

The Bat Cave


The OT&W marks the start of a new year of train shows, and with the star of a new Year we wanted to do something new. For those of you who braved the storm, we hope you were rewarded by what you saw. We know that we certainly were. Your gasps of joy and that impromptu round of applause was music to our ears. With new scenes from Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean , Lord of the Rings, a new Zoo, the Bat Cave in LEGO City, and enhanced Oz Scene, and new trains we think we’ve brought out our “A” Game. what did you think?

The Annual Hostler’s Train show was great!!!
As a club we got some great press from the Likes of KSL’s Doug Wright who on Air said that

the best part of the Show is the Lego display…every year they add something new. This year there’s Plexi glass so the kids can get right up to [the LEGO]”

We couldn’t agree more. This show featured Travis Levi Murphy’s Wizard of Oz Diorama, as the newest addition to the layout. and it was impressive. Click on the Image above to check out pics of it or some of the other sections of the layout.

If you missed it don’t sweat, We’ll be showing it and the whole layout again at the upcoming Trapper Trails council Scout O Rama.
