Weekend Pass

This page has information exclusively for Weekend Pass holders, including exhibitors, vendors and volunteers.  This page will be updated extensively in the days leading up to World War Brick and will serve as a reference before and during the show.  Please check back often because this page will change!

When You Arrive

When you arrive on Friday, please stop at the information desk, located right inside our street entrance on 18th Avenue NE (The north side of the building – look for the giant bricks). There you will receive your official WWB Weekend Pass and goody bag. Your goody bag will contain (among other things) a lanyard for your Weekend Pass. We ask that you wear your Weekend Pass at all times. This is your ticket in and out of space throughout the weekend, and will grant you access to the assembly area and other non-public areas of Brickmania during the public portion of the event.

The Mosaic Build will happen throughout the event— or until completed. For each 10×10″ baseplate completed, you will be rewarded a limited edition custom minifig (it’s being printed now – design will be revealed soon). Baseplates are given out in order they must be completed. No cherry picking allowed.

A general play area with LEGO building bricks and a race ramp (for attendees not necessarily interested in military modeling) will be set up at World War Brick.

Register Your MOCs!

World War Brick wants you to display your creations! As a Weekend Pass holder you have earned the right to display your work. If you’re planning to bring MOCs (“My Own Creations”) to display, please pre-register them now. This allows us to have pre-printed MOC cards awaiting your arrival. It also helps us to determine how much space to have available for displays.  MOC registration will close at midnight on Tuesday, June 17th.  Pre-registration is required to be eligible for contest prizes.

MOC registrations is available HERE.

Code of Conduct in Brickmania

Your weekend pass grants you access to areas at Brickmania not normally open to the public. This includes access to the GMLTC’s building space and Brickmania’s offices. We ask that you do not touch equipment or rummage through drawers, cabinets, bins or boxes in any of these areas. For reference here is a list of things that are OK to do in the office it is OK to do the following:

  • Browse the Brickmania reference library behind Dan’s desk. Pull up a chair and read a book!  The books are semi organized so please try to put all books back on the shelf where you found it.
  • Have a snack. We weren’t joking about the Ramen buffet!  We’ll have a supply of hot water and vast selection ramen available for hungry weekend pass holders. However, we won’t be responsible for any negative digestive impact as a result of massive MSG consumption.
  • Relax. The office will be our game area on Friday, but will also be an air-condition retreat from the public on Saturday and Sunday.  While we encourage builders to stay with their MOCs during the public, you may need a momentary break. The office is just the place to go.

At World War Brick we expect all Weekend Pass Holders, volunteers, staff and visitors to follow the golden rule: Do onto others as you would have them do onto you. Stealing, fighting, cheating, destruction of property, use of derogatory language, etc. are strongly discouraged and may result in ejection from the event and and other consequences.

Alcohol, tobacco or drug use is prohibited in Brickmania Toyworks during World War Brick. Smoking is permitted outside the building according to Minnesota state law.
