Prague 2018: Lego Star Wars [part07]

I think that Lego Star Wars was the brand that resolved Lego financial problems years ago on the edge to be closed down. Now Lego is one of the biggest game industries in the world. Here some things that I found in Lego museums. A day will be great to play a Star Wars wargame with Lego pieces.

Prague 2018: Lego [part06]

You can’t believe this but in Prague there are 3 Lego museums. In a place where museums only for tourist are usual, this couldn’t be so weird indeed. The first one is in the basement of a Lego store and it is narrow with a Lego history feel, the second one is in the basement of Hamleys and is an huge representation of historical buildings of Czech Republic, the third one is a little part of the railway modelling museum.

Nagai and Tomino creations in Lucca Comics & Games were present as idols of the Japanese giant robots religion spread by anime on TV. I feel that I need some votive statues with them. I have some Tomino pieces of his pantheon in my house but none of Nagai ones. This could be heresy.

Romics – april 2017

Time travel. There were two more Romics editions after this one. Always the same story about backlog of posts. However we had fun at time. It is the excuse to buy comics, gadgets. And to taste strange foods and drinks from Asia. And to watch beautiful female cosplayers. We visit Romics during an entire day from the open to the closure, always in the less overcrowded day.




Due to Romics links with Japan we had the visit of Yoshiyuki Tomino, the man behind Gundam.





At the end an image of my friend Paolo together with his nephew, a eclectic cosplayer.

Roma Gioca 2016

Every year we can have our Roman wargame convention in spite of logistic problems. In the 2016 we were guest in locals under a large technical school. We had a lot of tables with Gothic Wars, zombies, WWII, Star Wars, Gundam and other delicacies. As Ganesha Games we propose Rogue Stars and Faustus Furius.


















As addendum some reenactors showed us Viking and Medieval times.

Lucca C&G 2016: Walk around [part11]

I showed close-ups at the most on particular subjects. Now is the turn to watch some views of Lucca and his habitants in the 50th year of the convention. Always a partial view, but it is something at least. The eye of the camera is so small that cannot reproduce hundred of thousand people that walk around Lucca and that are involved in this world.



























At the end the new fashion of 2016: barriers against death by car terrorism.

How to rebuild ancient Rome with Lego bricks: here the Forum Traiani. Last year we saw a fraction of it, new bricks and Roman minifigs are now added. To build the entire Forum could be required a lot of more bricks. But for now enjoy it.

Lucca C&G 2016: Lego [part08]

Another constant of Lucca C&G are Lego bricks. They are very popular nowadays. Here some builders bring their enormous creations.




Look at Scooby Doo and dinosaurs that follow chicken minifigs. They are small in the photo but you can see them.

This year was the turn for something WWII themed. Lego don’t produce them but there are some WWII models and minifigs in Lego world built by people who want to add a bit of history and war in this world. Think about to play with minifigs instead of miniatures: you can destroy and rebuilding things…
