New Year's Eve, 2010

Name of Model: LEGO LUG Showcase Model for Rockefeller Center January 2011

Details: It's hard to believe that 2010 is coming to an end. We've shared one model here for each of these past 365 days, and it looks like we're good to go for another year. I'm sure that most of my readers are familiar with the popular New Year's ritual of watching a large object dropped near a crowd in a large city - you may also be aware of the annual TV special that features the "ball" dropping in New York City's Times Square. Here we see the best part of that captured in LEGO form (sorry, Justin Bieber fans - most of us only tune in for the countdown). The "ball" here looks great, thanks to the mix of clear plates and translucent 1x1 round plates - apparently it's a variation on the design that Legohaulic provided instructions for. This model will be on display in the Rockefeller Center LEGO store for the month of January, 2011.

Thanks for blogging this model! It was a time sensitive build as I wanted to have it dropped off in time for New Year's Eve. It barely fits in the LUG Showcase in the Rockefeller Center store but I am glad the store liked the model and that you thought it was "fascinating" and worthy of blogging.
Twice in a few days. Thanks!

Happy New Year!

Repeating the same builder within a few days is something I actually try to avoid, but this was absolutely perfect for New Year's Eve.

Thanks Dan. Since being blogged I find myself visiting quite often. Great work here on your blog.

Heading out in a few hours to a LUG meeting and hoping to get a lot accomplished with friends.
