So, yesterday when I got back home from work, there was a pleasant surprise in the mail.
A sweet custom LEGO set had been delivered all the way from Sweden.
It seems that I was to be included amongst the lucky people who got their hands on this ultra special SJ X2000 train designed by CopMike.
Anyway, since the kids wont really leave me alone when I’m building and since this particular set had some shiny pearl silver parts, I decided it would be suitable, that I built it at work.
Which I’ve just done and now it sits on a display shelf behind glass.
- Best lunch break I’ve had in a long time
Now for some images and no, I wont make copies of the instructions nor the inventory. :p
All neatly packed in a box
Printed tile yum yum!
Next to a Gothenburgian Tram
Yep, it’s on display
Here’s the video of the 139 GBC modules running at LEGOWorld CPH 2013.
So I’ve uploaded the last round of images from LEGOWorld in Copenhagen.
Not all are as good as I’d liked them to be – I guess I’ll have to work my photography skills, perhaps in combination with a better and more light sensitive lens.
Here’s a few of them – all images are links to my flickr stream on LEGOWorld 2013 in Copenhagen.

I do have a video on the GBC module – I’ll be posting that tomorrow – hopefully xD
Today is the last day after 4 amazing days LEGO World in Copenhagen. All AFOLs are happy and the public visitors of course too.
A great event – thanks to all who made this happen.
I took some more pictures today to share with you before the end of the show.

Yesterday I arrived at LEGOWorld in Copenhagen.
The day was spent on checking out all the LEGO themed universes inside LEGOWorld and also getting a good look at all the superduper fan MOCs in the Fan Zone.
When the “show” was over we went for a champagne reception at the LEGO Store in Copenhagen where several AFOLs enjoyed the possibility of buying the Palace Cinema early.
Sadly they had no chrome red keychains – I need to use my VIP card soo much more…
Anyways, today is Friday and I’ve spend the morning talking to fans and checking out their nice creations.
Among the ones I’ve run into so far are Stefan and his nice Nyhavn diorama, Dennis Bosman and his trucks, Maciej Drwiega and his trucks and Arjan Oude Kotte and his collection of ships. Now to find out how to sneak one out without them noticing it.
There are plenty of pictures – well at least until my camera ran out of battery. I guess “someone” at the office borrowed it and didn’t recharge the battery after use – THANK YOU! :p
So here’s a few to enjoy – click them to go to my flickr photostream for more.
