WEEKEND PASS HOLDERS / EXHIBITORS
Q: Where can I buy my World War Brick 2021 Weekend Pass?
A: HERE at Brickmania.com
Q: How much space will I have to display my MOCs?
A: We more than 10,000 square feet of space in the main exhibit area and should give plenty of room for everyone to display their MOCs. We will provide necessary table space for all the MOCs and seating for everyone. A MOC registration link will be sent to all Weekend Pass holders in the weeks prior to the event. Pre-printed MOC cards will be provided for those who pre-register their MOCs. Blank MOC cards will be available on site. All MOCs must have completed MOC cards to be eligible for awards.
Q: Do I need to give attribution for designs I copied or kits being put on display?
A: It is a courtesy to give attribution to other builders for designs incorporated into your builds. However it is not required. The most important thing is to show up and have fun.
Q: Do you have a policy on language and violence?
A: Exhibitors are encourage to refrain from the use of abusive, derogatory, or vulgar language and/or actions. All of us together represent the LEGO military modeling community and what we do as individuals represent the entire community. Violence depicted in MOCs acceptable, considering the historical nature of the subject, but the organizers reserve the right bar displays that push the bounds of good taste. Please be reasonable.
Q: Will there be security at the event and can I leave my MOCs unattended during the public hours?
A: We will have security personnel on duty and video cameras will be present in the event space, but our eyes and ears cannot be at all places at all times. We have displayed our MOCs at 100s of LEGO fan events around the world and 99% of the time there are no incidents of theft. Sadly there is no way we can guarantee sticky fingers will not be present at World War Brick. We will assign security to watch the collaborative builds during public hours, but we encourage exhibitors to stay with their MOCs. This way you can keep an eye on your treasures and answer questions from the public.
Q: Do I need to pre-register to attend activities or contests?
A: Most activities will be open to everyone that shows up. Certain activities will require signing up for specific time blocks. These sign ups will be held at 10 am each morning.
Q: Can I refund my Weekend Pass ticket?
A: Tickets are non-refundable after April 1st, 2021.
Hello, was curious being the website for World War Brick hasn’t been updated in away with current information, was curious if there will be hotel listing for those who are planning attending such as my self. Also would like to know if 2020 weekend passes are still being honored for 2022 WWB
Our apologies for the lack of update on the site – we will resume making updates to the site, announcing, activities, schedule, etc. We’re still working on a final roster of activities, but will start putting up preliminary information ASAP.
We did not put together a hotel block for this WWB due to uncertainty of the schedule and the pandemic (contacts typically need to be signed many months in advance). Hotels downtown in Minneapolis can be expensive, so we suggest looking in the Roseville area, which which is about the same distance from (via car) from Brickmania HQ and are much cheaper without the downtown hotel taxes. We have also been encouraging people to take advantage of the airbnb and Vrbo availability in our neighborhood (look up zip codes 55413 and 55418 or check for listings in Minneapolis, St Anthony, Roseville, and St Paul).
Also forgot to mention that Weekend Passes for WWB 2020 are most certainly being honored this year!
