Museum Quality Displays
World War Brick was founded by Daniel Siskind, an award-winning maker of historical models and displays built from LEGO® Bricks. Founded in 1999 under the name Brickmania, Daniel and his team produce the finest quality historical displays featured in museums, memorials, reunions, and schools, and whose custom kits are enjoyed in homes around the world. There will be many other creations and models on display created by World War Brick attendees, mainly in historical themes, but also a smattering of science fiction and other subjects.
We’re Building to the Next Level
The official LEGO® product line does not include modern military themes. To help fill this gap, BrickArms founder Will Chapman began manufacturing his own injection-molded plastic weapons designed specifically for use with the LEGO system. Since it’s humble beginning in a garage in a suburban Seattle in 2006, BrickArms has gained a huge international following and a reputation one of the finest-quality American toy manufacturers. BrickArms has been a major sponsor of the World War Brick event since day one. Will Chapman is giving the featured presentation on Friday evening to Weekend Pass holders.
Supporting Our Veterans
World War Brick has been dedicated to supporting our Veterans since the first one was held in Chicago in 2012. Many activities such as the raffle and auction are specifically designed with fund-raising in mind, with all proceeds being donated to the Wounded Warrior Project. At World War Brick 2015 we raised over $10,000 and plan to far exceed that figure in 2016!
