State of the LUG – 2023

Hi all – Happy New Year, and welcome to our new members! It’s been a minute since we had an update, so let’s talk about what we have coming up in 2023.


If you are waiting for the next update on LUGBulk – so are we. We should see the parts list by mid January, and we will move fast when that happens. Next steps are:

  • LEGO releases list
  • Eligible LUGBulk Participants select 4-5 elements
  • Run Mock order for all participants
  • Use Mock order to reduce list to final 85 elements
  • Run the real order
  • Submit to LEGO

Watch this space and your email, we will need to move fast!

LUG Showcase

We will be at the Holiday Inn on March 31-April 1. Save the Dates!
If you are planning on having a table to display your LEGO Builds, we will be taking signups shortly. We’ve also had some interest from kids who’d like to display, so we will be discussing how that’s going to work.


Meetings will continue – we want to try and have a meeting about once a month, so we will be scheduling something soon.

Build Challenges

We will also be bringing back monthly build challenges – if you have an idea for a theme, post in the comments!
