BrickCon Home BrickCon Home
An Adult LEGO® Hobbyist Event held each October at the Seattle Center.
2019 - Thursday  October 3rd: 8am to Sunday October 6th: 6pm @ Seattle Center Exhibition Hall

Themes & Collaborations

BrickCon uses Themes to divide our displays into reasonably coherent areas. It would look awkward to have a spaceship sitting next to a castle, even if one builder built both. In the same vein, there are some Themes that have collaborations in that builders follow a standard created by individuals or committees within the Theme. A well recognized example is “Moonbase” within the “Space” Theme. You should contact the Theme Coordinator(s) (Contact Us) to discover and discuss these collaborations and standards (most are published on the web), or to introduce a new one.

The overall Theme for BrickCon 2019 is Just Build It!

Note: It is not necessary to build to this Theme, but we encourage you to do so.

Just BUILD It!

Imagine it! BUILD It!

BUILD something to show! Make it Fun!

Please be respectful. Please collaborate. Please have fun!


MOC Cards

To become eligible for recognition and to assure you’ll have the space needed to display your MOC(s), please use the MOC form.

We have switched over to Google Forms to manage MOC cards. After you complete your registration, you will have access.

Large MOCs

You should contact our coordinators directly about any MOCs you plan to bring larger than a couple 32×32 baseplates. Use the Contact Us link and select the appropriate Theme category. Large MOCs brought in during Set-Up cannot be guaranteed space for display without prior communication through the MOC Card process or direct contact with the Theme Coordinator.

If your MOC(s) won’t fit you won’t be allowed to display it (them) – contact your Theme Coordinator early!
