I got a few hours to myself this past weekend and decided to go to the Lego convention in Tysons Corner. It was a bit of a madhouse, with just as many adults as kids running around. I judge these events by the number of fanny packs that people wear, the higher the number, the geekier it is. This event was only 3 out of 10 fanny packs. This isn't on the scale of a Linux festival, but it had a few social misfits in the bunch. The guys that build the animals and Bionicle figures were suspect for knowing the general anatomy of a female, if ya know what I mean.
Here are some of the many pictures
BattleStar Gallactica was well-represented:
As was Star Wars:
