The last LEGO Fan Weekend

The past weekend the last LEGO Fan Weekend was concluded and it was again a great event!
We had 350 AFOLs visiting from 24 different countries around the world!
This was an awesome experience.

Lots of AFOLs showed their fantastic MOCs to each other, many LEGO employees (among the Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and J├Şrgen Vig Knudstorp) and over 2300 public visitors.

Friends from all over the World came together to meet and to make new friendships – it was so much fun!

I want to thank you everybody who made this event happen and participated it in the past 10 years!

Beyond The Brick – Kevin Hinkle Interview

My colleague in the US, Kevin Hinkle has been interviewed by Beyond The Brick.

Even if the interview is quite long – almost an hour, it is definetly worth watching as they do get around a lot of the details of our job and what we do.

Great interview Kevin – looking forward to visiting you in June in Enfield – when I also get to visit BrickWorld.

 

LEGO Novelties & Confidentiality

It seems that several AFOLs out there are still not fully aware of our policies in regards to “confidential” and “preliminary” images.

Please share this with your fellow AFOLs.

1st Anniversary

It has been a year since we launched the CEE Team Blog (now renamed the Community Team Blog).

When we launched it we were anxious of 2 things – 1) would the AFOL community like our blog and 2) would we manage to find the time to post regularily?

I believe the answer is “yes” on both accounts.

Now we are aware that compared to the BIG PLAYERS out there, our site is close to being a sandcorn in an endless desert, but never the less, we still have a dedicated group of people who’ve gone as far as following the blog (130 at the time of writing this).

We have more than 77,000 views in a year, which is more than we expected.

We’ve managed to put in 228 blog posts (plus this one) in about 360 days.

We had our biggest “hit” on April 26th with the unveiling of the Tower of Orthanc.

 

On behalf of the Community Support Team (Jan, Kevin, Keith and myself) I would like to say “Thank You!” to all of you.

The interest you’ve shown in our blog and our daily work and travels, has just ensured that we’ll keep posting here.

 

CEE Full Teammeeting

Over the past 2 1/2 days we had the annual full CEE Teammeeting happening at an off site place in Denmark.
We had variouse discussions about roles, responsibilities and tasks within the team and also worked on the new Business plan for our area.

As a medium to facilitate this we used of course LEGO bricks and a method called Seriouse Play.
