Far Beyond the Basics, With Legos

BEATRICE – Area residents got the chance to see some intricate structures made of Legos, at the Homestead National Monument of America, on Saturday.   As part of the monument’s 80th birthday, the Lincoln and Omaha Lego Users Group had displays set up, including an intricate replica of Nebraska’s State Capitol.

Nate Flood is President of the Lincoln and Omaha area group, which consists of about 50 members.  The group got its start in 2012 by hooking up to other Lego user’s groups through online forums and blogs.

Flood himself created a train display out of Legos, which from a distance doesn’t appear to be made out of Legos.   He says “that’s the cool reaction you want”.

Flood says the kids like the Lego displays, but it’s the adults that really provide the best reaction to shows the group conducts.

Flood says each time the organization puts on a show, it stands a good chance of picking up members for their organization.  The group members are passionate about their work and artistic….and many of the Lego pieces go beyond the basic pieces most adults are familiar with.
